How am I doing you ask?  (I've gotten lots of emails)  I'm not!  LOL!!!  I actually weigh only 3 pounds less than when I started!  UGGGHH!  Apparently you HAVE to do some form of exercise when you are fifty for the weight to go down.  SOOOOOOOO not part of the plan.

I spend so much time on the road that I end up eating things I should not be eating.  Can you say MASSIVE POINTS????  I am not going to stress it though.  I am just going to start over.  I have enough stress in my life without stressing McDonald's French Fries if I want them!!! (An ohhhhh how I love those french fries!!)

Anyway, I do have a wonderful treadmill at home (the wiring still wrapped in plastic after MONTHS) which I have now moved into the Florida room... in front of the TV.... let's see what happens!

My friend Linda is losing weight and so are others so it's not the program!  It's yours truly!


  1. Well I did it faithfully for over a month and lost two lousy pounds. And I didn't do a bit of exercise, so I guess that's why! I don't have room for a treadmill in my NYC apartment and I don't like to go to gyms (though I've been a member for quite a while) so I guess I'm going to have to brave the streets of New York with my walking shoes on. Sigh. This process was so much easier when I was 20.

  2. Yes, I'm sure exercise is a good thing and aids in weight loss, but let me tell you that aside from walking, which we do a lot of in NYC, I don't do a lick of it, and I have always lost weight on WW. If you really really follow the plan and keep track of points, that is. And as you know, I am WAY over 50.
    I have so much stress right now over my mother that I haven't counted a point in weeks. And it shows.
    We do what we can do, right?

  3. HOWEVER,in spite of what the 2 lovely ladies above(love you guys) say...exercise is not only good for the body but for the soul. I don't know how I would have handled the traumatic things that have happened(are are currently happening) in my life without exercise. Even when I was teaching full time,I always tried to at least walk for a half hourewhen I got home,in the dark or not,on the treadmill or outside.It always always helps!
    Now that I am retired, I have added Pilates and yoga to my schedule,and they are both wonderful.
    After 50,for me,I know that if I didn't exercise,I would be 1. VERY fat and 2. Very wacko!!!

    Just my 2 cents. Love ya Elena!
