I’ve got my fingers crossed. I spent all day and I do mean all day after I finished posting yesterday, in bed. I was well-behaved. I had lots of fluids, took my cold medicine religiously every four hours. I drank 2 huge cups of hot tea with lemon…and a pizza but I know that no one heard that. The pizza wasn’t part of the health regimen for the day. But I may have beaten this dreadful cold. I’ve been up for over an hour and no coughing. Can you see me smiling? Well, I am.
I had mentioned that during the time I was in Florida that I did really well on Weight Watchers. It was so very helpful that four of us were working on the program together. We were all sharing info, working on accurately calculating Points and when we cooked at home, cooking according to what were good choices. Also we didn’t over cook, we didn’t cook more than we needed so there were no pesky leftovers.
When the girls have been in Florida before they went to a particular Weight Watchers meeting. They really liked the leader, Kelley and I liked her too when I was there. But they didn’t feel comfortable with the class itself. The people in the meeting were not particularly friendly to them. That’s an important thing at a WW meeting…you have to feel part of the class or it can work against your success.
All that has changed this time and I think it’s part of why everyone has been so successful this time.
Much of their positive progress is due to this lady…
Her name is Beverly and she is just the best! She’s enthusiastic and lively. She makes everyone, even the visitors feel like they are part of the group. She’s informative, she answers questions and she makes everyone feel an important part of the meeting. Her meetings are very popular and I’ve always been a firm believer that a good leader develops successful members.
I think our little Gang of Four was proof of that. Alice has lost 40 pounds, Gail has lost 17 pounds, Margot lost 10 pounds and in the three weeks I was there I lost 2 and a half pounds. I didn’t expect that but it was a great bonus to me. I know that much of it is due to us working together as I said before, but Beverly has a lot to do with it.
I look forward to getting back to my home Weight Watchers meeting tomorrow. I’ve missed my regular leader, MaryLou and our little group there. While I was away, I got an e-mail from my friend Debbie telling me that there were strangers in my seat and she wasn’t happy about it.
I’ll be back in my seat tomorrow. Although anywhere that there’s a WW meeting, I’ll always feel at home.
