Okay, I lost 2 lbs.  :-\  But I guess that's better than nothing, and certainly better than gaining!  Damn, 20 years ago if I wanted to drop a couple lbs. it came off so easily!

Keep up the good work, everyone!  :)

Checking in a little late because I was out of town last week. I lost 3.5 pounds over the month and am very satisfied with my progress! What's worked for me was eating a good breakfast every day, cutting back on carbs and alcohol, only eating when I'm hungry, and not eating after about 8 pm at night. Also, I stopped eating while doing something else like driving. On the fitness front, I made progress by carrying weight while walking, taking a rock climbing class, snowshoeing in the mountains once a week, and hiking at least 4 miles a day in wintery weather. Also, I have tried to increase my workout regimen on the elliptical training each time I work out and I have started working my upper body with weights. I'm developing a solid mental attitude about what I can achieve with this body fitness-wise and learning that I can develop more strength and stamina than I ever thought possible.

What's not working for me is continuing stress and the sedentary lifestyle that we all have to battle. It's particularly bad on Sundays when I'm either driving, sitting in church, sitting in a restaurant, or sitting somewhere else. Must change my Sunday routine!

Congratulations everybody on your progress!
May 2019 be better for us all.

[raises hand meekly]

It started out OK, with a really good weigh-in on Saturday, but this past weekend was tough. I'm getting back on the horse, though.

As my Weight Watchers teacher is fond of reminding us, it's actually better to have it be a struggle at times, to have ups and downs. You learn more that way. Essentially you're learning habits that you'll need to follow for the rest of your life. And the failures are part of the process.

Uh, yeah!

But I'm determined to keep to this.

Worth a try? Hmm ... well, it's not too difficult, anyway. I've got some nice fig-flavored balsamic ...

The latest research out of Japan suggests that a daily intake of vinegar will boost your bodyís ability to burn fat. Nice! The researchers fed two groups of mice a high-fat diet, supplementing one group with a daily dose of the main chemical in vinegar. The group that consumed the acetic acid developed less body fat than the ones that didnít have any. In a follow-up study with human subjects, three teaspoons of vinegar diluted in two cups of water daily experienced similar results after 12 weeks. Go ahead, toss your salad with vinegar instead of those creamy dressings and sprinkle a healthy dose of it onto your steamed veggies. Then burn baby burn!

There are entire books out there on the virtues of vinegar. My father drinks a shot of apple cider vinegar--cut with an equal amount of water--a day. He swears it's helping lower his "bad" cholesterol.

Correction:

Since I wrote the above, I've talked to my dad. He takes one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in one shot of water twice a day, before lunch and before dinner.
