Some Things On The Internet Are True

Yesterday when I was making a quick run through Facebook, I found these wonderful words of wisdom…

I can’t remember who posted it first, but I immediately took possession of it.  Being an old Weight Watchers leader, I’m always on the lookout for things like this.  It was always fun to share them with my members and I still do share with the other members of the meeting I attend now.  It was funny…I laughed a lot…until…

I mentioned that yesterday Ralph and I would be attending a funeral.  I don’t dress up much these days because I just don’t have to.  All of my dress pants are stored to the rear of my closet and due to lack of space (I’m always complaining about that!) they’re a little hard to get to.  I also had to find something warm to wear because it was pretty chilly.  I searched things out, got everything assembled then got cleaned up. 

As I started to get dressed, I was pleased with myself…I liked my selection, thought it was appropriate and since the top I planned to wear was something Ralph had given me, I knew he would be pleased.

I took my good black pants off of the hanger.  Now I know for a fact that I’ve lost weight since I stopped working.  I see the numbers on my card at Weight Watchers each week.  I can go back and do the research if need be, but I am certain I weigh less than the last time I wore these pants.


I’m not kidding!  They were very snug around the waist.  In spite of the cold, I Wasn’t wearing long underwear, so that couldn’t be the reason.   Not the legs or the butt, just the waist!  They fit and were comfortable, I just remember them being looser when I wore them last.  I was very disappointed. 

I really don’t have an answer to this question, but I swear, I jinxed myself by posting that little blurb about the calories on Facebook!

Since I’m already on the path of re-focusing on what I do with food and how I work the Weight Watchers program, I guess this is probably a good thing to happen now.  It gives me something to work towards.  Actually it was a pair of pants that was partially responsible for getting me to go to Weight Watchers in the first place.  I should tell you all that story sometime soon.

I know I’m not the first, nor will I be the last that has this type of rude awakening.  I guess we all need a DiNozzo to the back of the head now and then. (NCIS reference-Please, Mark Harmon-smack me in the head!)  I’m glad that I got it at the beginning of the year and Before I go to Florida.  It will give me something to use as an incentive.

Before I leave you…WHAT an incredible sunrise this morning…

Pretty incredible!  Looks like Gnarly Tree is on fire! 

Happy Friday!!

  1. I am no expert but maybe your body composition is just changing or shifting. I remember after I had my first baby and got back to pre-baby weight my pelvic bones had changed and even though my stomach was flat, my bones were wider.

    The body is a mysterious wonder sometimes. I am sure your doctor (or even google) could give you some insight. With age comes wisdom, and also body changes whether you want them or not.

    Love the tree pic, very cool.

    • Marie, I’m sure you’re right about that. I was just so frustrated! You’re right though, the body is a wonder and we’re lucky that we have health and stop worrying about this sort of thing. Just keep working at it! Glad you like Gnarly Tree. I think it’s beautiful!!

    Wow…that photo is beautiful!!! Sorry ’bout the pants issue. GRRRR. And for the record, Mark Harmon could swat me on the head anyday too!! 🙂 Have a wonderful Friday.

  3. First, I love NCIS and Mark Harmon, so I enjoyed the reference. Second, are you exercizing along with the diet? I’ve been walking three miles almost every day and I go to the gym, but I can’t get rid of my lower belly pot and I hate it. My sister says it has to do with age, damn. Have a great day.

    Here’s another thought on the pants: I don’t know about you but i’m an 1 1/2″ shorter than I used to be! Well, all that extra needs to go somewhere and I think it just piles up in the middle….:-)

  5. I’ve had a number of pants that I tried to convince myself had shrunk in the wash! Never a fun discovery.

  6. I can completely relate to this! I think that I must have a lot of calories in my closet lately haha
