If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time at all, you know that I like to bake pie. What you probably don’t know is that work, pie, and pretty much anything else have taken a higher priority than exercise in the last many years. So a few weeks ago, (and before that, a year ago), I wrenched my back without having done much of anything at all.
It was one of those wake-up call moments (it wasn’t, apparently, last year; doing it twice did the trick, though).
I made one of those snap decisions to get back in shape, specifically with regular physical therapy and ongoing exercise. The biggest decision was to join Weight Watchers — which I did two weeks ago and have so far lost 5 lbs.
Why Weight Watchers?
Among friends and family, WW has been by far the most successful plan for those who have lost weight, kept it off and regained a healthy lifestyle. It’s a plan that makes sense to me and because I’m a technogeek, I like using the online tools; the app for my iPad and my smartphone.
What happens to the pie?
Worry not, my friends. I have continued my pie obsession, mostly giving it away to others. In fact, I was pleased to find quite the selection of pie recipes among Weight Watchers offerings, so be looking for some lighter pie posts in upcoming months.
