    check out your local weight watchers or go online---if you think you have good eating habits ---you'll see how much you might be overeating. I thought I had reasonable eating patterns and it was truly frightening to see how much food I was consuming .... tracking my intake is pretty shocking how little you need to feel refueled and satisfied... it's so weird.

    since your a married man/ I'm a married gal--- I'll keep my personal assesment of your physique to myself

    I've been a regular at the In and Out drive thru here.... Double Double with Cheese, an extra cheese burger and a chocoloate shake. No fries... I'm watching my figure... expand ;)
    Seriously though.. I'd rather have a second hamburger than an order of fries. I swear there is something in that burger. They are are too dang good.

    Well, first of all, everyone looks better with a little cutie like your daughter in the picture. Secondly, congratulations, I think you have hit on a powerful device beyond a scale and our pants size to measure progress in something than can be ard to measure week to week. Lastly, I wonder if you could start a side business offering this service to all the other folsk in Weight Watchers.

    Congratulations Nat! Great challenges met - and glad you're victorious! Your photos certainly show your perseverance. Nice!

    BTW, I miss you not being around - I know we all do. Thanks for keeping us up to date - and for peeking in and posting when you can.

    You're an inspiration Natalie!

    Well done. Nat !
    I looked at an old photo of me, I reckon I might be twice what I was

    You're inspiring me to do something about it !

    Great Work Nat....As one who is also doing WW and who needs to lose much much more...I am always happy to hear about and support anyone who succeeds at weight loss. I started in April and have lost about 25 lbs so far...but as I said...I've just scratched the surface. Keep up the good work and as others have said....PORTION CONTROL and lots of regular exercise...
    Congrats....Ken
