The battle with weight begins anew…

March 4, 2012 | Amateur Radio | By: Mark VandeWettering

Back in 2004, I blogged that I was joining Weight Watchers. Over the next year or so, I shed about seventy pounds, but then reached a stalling point where further weight loss seemed impossible. This frustration ultimately caused me to stop going.

My weight held for a while, but over the years (and recently at an accelerated pace) my weight has returned, so now nearly 8 years later, I’m back in the same position again. Blood pressure up. Cholesterol up. Weight up. And eight years older. So, it’s back to Weight Watchers again. It’s not without it’s drawbacks (for one, being outnumbered by women at meetings by 25 to 1) but it is fundamentally quite reasonable, and I’ve had success with it before.

Today, I’ll merely list my weight at 1.0 (measured in normalized brainwagon units). As we go forward, my hope is to update you with smaller fractional values. Wish me luck.

Good luck Mark on your mass reduction effort! It’s worth it!

Weight watchers feels so obsolete. To me it is quite easy to loose weight, just avoid all sugar/carbs incl. pasta, potatoes, bread etc. and only eat ‘real’ food.
