I hauled our butts down to weight watchers the day after my birthday ... have been tracking and eating right now for the last several months. Right away I noticed that I have more energy and some of the aches are gone. I have lost 9 pounds and my hubby a bit over 20. Sometimes it doesn't seem fair that he is losing it so fast, but he pointed out that he has a lot more to lose than I do. He is also becoming a walking champ. We bought fitbits, and he is determined to get in his 10,000 steps a day. He has gone from couch potato to someone who is searching the Internet for walking trails. His best find is a lovely 2.5 mile trail in Des Moines that ends at the waterfront. An easy walk for me as it is mostly downhill. I even bought a good pair of walking shoes!
