o.k. I am going to take a deep breath and plunge in. I joined Weight Watchers on May 5 and have lost 14.6 pounds. That is really kind of fast for me because I have always been a slow loser and now that I turned 70 I figured it was an uphill ba... Read more

Well, I am officially a full fledged member of the "fell off" club. But I will never, never, never, give up trying to get this weight off. My plan is quite simple--rejoin gym and go 4 or 5 times a week. Track food intake, eating between 1200-... Read more
