Is not very exciting.
Except that it sort of is.
Except when it's not.
Yeah, I'm all over the map recently.
Let me start over again.
Maintenance... uR Doin it... Pretty wel akshuly.
I weighed in this week exactly the same as last week. (Despite my Wii Fit telling me I'd lost 6 pounds, gained 3 pounds back in one day, and according to it, I am 2 pounds down from where I was last week, but you know, I begin to think it's doing unspeakable things with my DVD player in its spare time...)
Also, because I hadn't decided until after the meeting and my quick chat with Beth, that I was declaring goal, I hadn't announced it at last week's meeting.
So I did that this week.
I brought in my obligatory Before picture and my fat pants. (No, I didn't stand in half the pants to show them off...)
I was quite astonished at people's reaction. My weight watcher's group, you must understand, has a LOT of regulars. I've known about half these people for at least a year (even if I don't remember all their names) and at least 5 of them for the entire 20 months that I've been at WW. So, I was a little floored at the gasps when i held up the 8x11 picture. (Were they horrified gasps? I'm hoping they were "wow, I'm impressed" gasps. But really, that before picture scares me, so they might be horrified. Except I'd hate to think that I horrified anyone except myself.)
I also apparently sold someone a few months of weight watcher's last night. She was on her way out the door - had come in for some information and decided that she'd "think it over" - and Beth shoved me in her direction. "Quick! Quick! Go show this to her," she hissed at me just after I weighed in.
The woman stopped. Goggled. Looked at me. Looked at the picture. Looked at me.
"Incredible." She said. Then she proceeded to grill me. How many points did I eat a day, how long did it take me, was I happy... fortunately she did NOT ask me about my exercise, as that might have frightened her off. As it was, she ended up staying for the meeting, asking loads of questions, and as we were leaving, she was signing up for the monthly pass.
Stay tuned this week, I have some exciting stuff in the works for you, including a guest post from the lovely and intelligent Hanlie of Fertile Healthy, and a book review and contest!
Check back in next week as our intrepid heroine (not to be mistaken for intrepid heroin!) tackles another big obstacle! Sleepover party for 6 yr olds... scary!
