Pretty Happy!

That would be me!  I have to be honest, I was not sure what to expect when I went to weigh in at Weight Watchers Friday morning.  I had not been to a meeting since July 27.  I wasn’t able to get to one while we were in New Mexico.  I didn’t get to exercise except for walking around town and not even a lot of that.  I didn’t get all my water in because with our fridge issues during our stay, the water wasn’t really cold and therefore, not very appetizing.  And sad as I am to confess and in spite of my best intentions…I did not write in my journal.

I did write down for the first few days, but that was it.  I kept telling myself I needed to do it.  However, I didn’t do it.

BUT, when I got to WW for the weigh in today,  I was very pleasantly surprised.  I gained 1 and 1/4 pounds!  Now I don’t usually get excited over a gain, but under the circumstances…this is like a gift!  I can’t tell you what it was that kept me from gaining quite a bit more.  Perhaps, after all of these years of working at being a Weight Watchers member, maybe somethings are just natural for me and I wasn’t actually eating as much as I thought.  Obviously, it made my day!

Today was just a weigh in and tomorrow I will still be going to my regular meeting.  I had to go today because if I didn’t, I would have to pay since I had not attended another meeting in August.  It’ll feel good to be able to share with all of my WW friends that I was able to stay on track, somehow, although I can’t explain how.  It feels pretty good.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day weekend, in case you aren’t able to stop by at BCDC over the weekend.

Happy Saturday!! 🙂

  1. I think you’ve got to let yourself not worry on holiday and just have fun and that’s such a tiny gain, it must have been worth it, that’ll go in no time 🙂
    Have a great Labor Day weekend.

  2. happy long weekend, fran! i hope you have some fun plans (what, no birthday to celebrate?? i am shocked! haha!).
    i am going to go with the theory that you were relaxed and having fun on holiday and your body responded to your mental relaxation! how’s that?!
    enjoy seeing your ww friends today!

  3. Great news on the weigh-in! I’m pretty sure I typically gain a lot more than that when on vacation…

    Have a fun weekend and welcome back to Jersey 😉
