Sometimes it takes a jarring moment to startle you into a new regime. A few years ago, I was following WW and actually lost 35 pounds and was making progress. I stopped following the method after several business trips and complacency set in. Fast forward to today and all those 35 pounds I lost found their way back ... and they brought SEVERAL friends along.
I saw my doctor, weighed in ( 254!) and discovered my BP was 168/100 ...alarmingly high.
That's motivation... plus the sleep apnea thing ( 11 CCM's pushing through my nostrils each night for the past few years).
So I am back to counting points..because that seemed to work last time. My first goal was to get myself back in range. Yesterday was that day!
Here we go...One day at a time.
