This has been a difficult year so far as you can probably tell from the number of posts I’ve written. I think the economy has had a lot to do with our difficulties. We’ve been extremely busy trying to build our business or at least retain the bulk of the clients that we currently serve. All of this has had a negative effect on my desire to eat healthy foods. But I have not given up, I’ve just not done as well as I would have liked. All-in-all I’ve lost 9.6 pounds.

I’m still doing weight watchers and I still believe this is the best weight loss program for me. I do the online program, which lets me easily track the food (and points) that I eat each day. It reminds me to drink water, take my vitamins and also tracks the exercise I do each day.

I have incorporated a daily exercise regiment that works well for me too. Every other day I do about an hours worth of exercise on a “Wave” machine in  15 minutes. On those days I also do 1 mile of Power Walking with Leslie Sansone. The days that I’m not doing the Wave and 1 mile of walking, I do 30 minutes or 2 miles with Leslie Sansone.

For now – it’s working well for me considering the additional stress I’ve had in 2009.
