Weight for it...

Just checking in to tell you how Weight Watchers is working out for me. I just weighed in I'm down another 2.4 lbs.

Go me! Go me! OK. Enough of that. For today... Now I'm off to get some turkey chili at Paula's!

Nicci, Congratulations! I know how hard it is to lose weight. I've never done any formal weight loss program, but too many late-night meals after college left me 35 pounds heavier than when I graduated. (At 5-10, I tricked myself into thinking I carried it well!) I lost the weight in Korea, mostly through exercise and adapting a Korean diet. Not having a car, relying on public transit and carrying groceries home helped tremendously.
I gained back 5 or 10 pounds after Fred and I started dating, but thanks to yoga, I'm back at my goal weight with muscles in places I've never seen them!
For me, yoga combines exercise, meditation and relaxation. It's as relaxing and spiritually fulfilling as church is to some people.

Thanks, Stepf! I, too, am a fan of yoga. I need to find some Ashtanga classes. I wonder if any local places offer "hot yoga"? That was all the rage a few years ago... I loved it. But you need to take, like, a gallon of water with you...

Check out Yoga Garage in Clifton. While I have never been, I have their site bookmarked because yoga is something I want to get into eventually. As a runner, my flexibility is rather poor and I know that is one of the key elements in a healthy lifestyle. Someone make me go!!

I think whenever Nicci does yoga it's HOT yoga. At least my temperature rises a bit...

ooh, Chad Edward. Yow-za! The Foodie Report heats up.
Nicci, I go to yogasana in Columbia Tusculum. It's very small, very peaceful and very intense. I love it! It's an in-home studio and the floors are heated, so lately it has felt unbelievably decadent. I'm working really hard to be able to do a handstand unassisted. That's my latest fitness goal.

Good luck with Weight Watchers, of all the diets I've tried its the only one that works long term and it's very realistic. Hope it works for you!

WW is a pretty good plan, good luck with it...

Eat ALL of your points! Don't forget the dairy...
