- Summer seems like a great time to get fit, but it's also an easy time to get fat. All those veggies and the longer days seem like they would make losing easy. But long lazy days, a sense that you'll magically "be more active," and a lot of barbecues and other events where food is all around can make it a tough time for me. Sometimes it's easier to get a workout in when you don't have a bunch of extra time than when you have all day and "will get to it later."
- Planning is really the key to doing Weight Watchers without feeling hungry or crazed. Obvious, but easy to ignore.
- One bad day can do a lot of damage to your Points balance in an otherwise good week. I went to a street festival and breadsticks and beer are surprisingly not-points-friendly.

Some lessons learned
