Slow as she Goes

Wow…my 17th week in the weight watchers program!  Lost 0.6 pounds this week, which is slow, but a loss, none the less.  That is 14.2 pounds lost since I started in April.  Think I will make my goal by New Year’s Day!  I have been losing an average of 0.83 pounds a week.  I track everything I eat, and exercise six days a week.  Tuesdays and Thursdays I go to a class at Oakway Fitness that targets older people.  Free Weights, stretching, and balance are the main things we work on.  I have been walking thirty minutes every morning four days a week, but I think I am going to up that to five days a week.

The photo shows the 16 week charm I received last week for completing that many weeks.  When I lose 20% of my beginning weight I will receive the key ring.  I’m pleased with the program and pleased with my progress.  It is definitely the right place for me.

How about you?
