Weekly weight watcher update with way less snoring...

I'm days behind on posting so here I go...

There are a lot of ways to measure success and I haven't posted my weekly weights for that exact reason. I'm trying hard to undo all the wrong ways I've lost weight in the past.

Although I admit even saying that means I've come a long way - There are wrong ways to lose weight. There I've said it again. In the past any loss was fine with me no matter how it came to be and I've joyfully rationalized the positive after food poisoning more than I care to admit

So today's visual is more a sum-total.

Weight Watchers gives you a key chain when you've lost 10%
of the weight you were when you walked in the door.

I've been doing some googling on the whole 10% thing and it seems that losing just that amount is associated with multiple health benefits.

Everything from:
  • Decreased blood pressure
  • And diabetes rates
  • Lowered rates of heart disease
  • Lower health care costs per age group.
  • Being less achy because there is not so much,ya know tonnage on your joints
  • And snoring less. And I'm all for snoring less. I mean, C'mon...It's hard to feel like a delicate flower of a woman when you sound like a 747 coming in for a landing when you sleep....Even if you're wearing a sheer pink nightie with a feathery hem and some bling around the boobage. Right, girls?

There's more but you can search, too. And oh! Since internet searches are not a precise thing the same benefits can be had for losing small amounts (5 - 10 pounds) of weight so if 10 % of your body weight is a daunting prospect for you, go smaller, there will still be benefits.
