Today was the day…the day for weigh-in at Weight Watchers. This week has been a crazy week, driving to North Carolina to visit a dear friend — in fact, my best of the best friend! Unfortunately, she had to work, so I found myself simply relaxing — something that I rarely do! I kept telling myself I needed to walk, but it was simply much too hot, so I ate carefully and with much health in mind.
Yesterday, I drove home. While driving, I read the billboards and listened to music, finding myself singing my heart out along the highways. I am certain many people laughed as I drove past them, rocking and singing, but who cares. I’ll never see them again and I found ‘my time’ so relaxing. One billboard caught my eyes so I took the next exit…stopping at Dairy Queen to ‘treat myself’ to a milkshake.
This morning, I dreaded the weigh in, knowing that I had been a naughty little girl yesterday — by treating myself, but sometimes we must do something just for the sheer naughtiness! Rejoice! Minus 2.8 pounds this week. RING. RING. RING. FIREWORKS…JUMP FOR JOY, and then walk into the meeting room with my dignity again!
To date I have lost 16.4 pounds! Today, I got another 5-star sticker. I feel like a little kid passing the spelling bee…all I need now is my smiley face! OK…I admit it…I’m still a kid…never will I age gracefully. No. Not me. I cherish every one of these gold stars, and I plan to collect many…many more! If ever you’ve doubted the ability to lose weight — go to a Weight Watchers meeting and give it a chance. After all — IF I can do it — so can YOU! I confess, I’ve always known I was a ‘star’ and now, I have three gold stars to prove it!
