Coming to the 8am meeting, especially when I got back late last night after three long days on the road and leave back out tomorrow, is the pits. I’m wearing a hat with pigtails. I lost 2.6 pounds. I’ll take it, especially as I saved up to eat at The Commissary yesterday. I had two glasses of sweet tea and close to half of a BBQ Potato. (Insert Homer Simpons’ slobber noise.) I decided it was what was going to get me through my drive home after my 10 and 14 hour days.
There are only 6 rows of people and our leader is wearing a microphone. It’s not a good one, so he sounds funky. However, as someone who frequently holds training sessions/workshops, I can be hard to please or notice more than others. I’ve worn a mic before but not for this size crowd. He says he felt like he was yelling last week.
I’m sure may have yelled at this group. These people are distracted. Most are making small chat or sharing ideas on how to get the “chip taste” with crackers. There is an older lady sewing on the third row. I believe she’s making a small blanket, like for a baby. It doesn’t matter what it is, the fabric isn’t cute. I want to take her to Fabric House. It’s only 5 minutes away. Then, there are two ladies knitting on the back row. I wonder if all their stuff is going to the same baby.
I think last week’s “bravo” sticker was for attending my first meeting.
Once again, when I was weighed in they said nothing to me about my weight. In fact, I thought yesterday’s splurge made me gain until I opened my book. I didn’t realize I qualified for the 5 pound star until the meeting’s leader was almost done passing them out. I would appreciate some type of feedback, especially because this week they were better staffed and we weighed in individual little closets/rooms. If nothing else I wanted to talk more to the woman who weighed me. She was wearing a white scrunchie and a long navy dress with white buttons down the front and a large collar that had white piping. Then, white tennis shoes with white, perfectly folded, ankle socks. Since she didn’t feel like saying anything but “Is it warmer outside? I’m always cold now that I lost all my weight.” – y’all are in charge of my feedback. If you have any stickers you’d like to give me, I’ll add them to my WW materials. I gave a suggestion this week on how to make “power food” substitutes. It deserved at least 5 high fives and 2 stickers.
I’m back on the road this week, flying out tomorrow, but I’m shooting for at least a -3 pounds next week. I’m gonna rock it. It’s gonna be a sucky week, but I’m determined to work out and get more stickers.
