Well being sick has really helped me this week, although I was still on track to lose at least a pound. Sleeping most of the day yesterday helped bring me to todays weight loss of….
Nice! That puts me at SIXTY NINE pounds total! So close to seventy I can taste it! It also means on my scale I am only about 3lbs aways from reaching 75lbs lost. That is sweet.
Today I went to the 12:00 meeting so I didn’t feel compelled to fast until 5:30 (god that sounds awful) so the leader was different. I mentioned a few weeks ago that they gave us new weight tracker books, so today when New Leader goes to put my weight sticker in my book this happens:
Leader “oh week four, let’s get you your Week Four booklet”
Me: “Oh no this is not my week four“
Leader: “Oh what week are you on?”
Me: “Umm Week Thirty-Something”
Leader: (glances at my weight sticker) “oh my…wow!”
Me: (smiles awkwardly) “Ha, yeah, not week four”
Leader: “Oh my you must feel like a totally new person! Thats so great that you have stayed motivated this long!”
SIDE NOTE: Based on the fact that new WW leaders always seemed shocked by my loss, I’m assuming my *results aren’t typical.
Me: (get this whole “you must feel like a whole new person” thing a lot, and no I don’t really feel like a whole new person) “oh yeah, its great, I’ve been doing this since May 4th, I’m really hoping to lose 100lbs by my 1 year mark”
Leader: (scans me up and down) “Really? you think you need to lose another thirty pounds???”
Me: (actually bitch I need to lose another 45lbs, but thirty would make me happy!) “oh yeah I do”
Leader: “Well congrats!”
I walk away and find my seat. I feel like she is winking at me through the whole meeting. Weird-o.
Anyways the meeting was mildly boring, talking about how we need to get out there and move. Some scary statistic about how people who actually maintain their weight loss work out an average of ninety minutes a day (please note this could mean walking through a parking lot, not working out in a gym). One day maybe I’ll get my working out together. Today I am sick, today is not that day.
Oh and so I leave you with my 69 (70)lb loss pic, along with an old shot for dramatic effect. Enjoy!
