When: May 2005

Fast forward: 108 weeks.
Where: Plano, Texas
When: Sunday, May 24, 2007
What: achieved lifetime status (i.e., success and an end of monthly fees) at Weight Watchers, having reduced 85 pounds from 291 to 206
Why: I followed their program for some 108 weeks, making incremental progress until I reached the goal my doctor set for me.
Joy: it felt good to achieve the goal at last
