Weigh In Day and Tigger and Eeyore?

Posted on: April 30, 2013

I am so lucky to have found, not just the best WW Leader Melissa, but a fantastic group of members.  We all have so much fun and laugh at our meetings.  It got me to thinking about Randy Pausch and the Last Lecture… ( A college professor who after being diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer, delivered his last lecture at Carnegie Melon as a legacy to his young children)  He talks about being a Tigger or an Eeyore and striving to be a Tigger..  I think what makes my meeting so great is that there are a lot of  Tigger’s  in my meeting…

Randy moved close to me in  Chesapeake, VA to have his last special months with his family and he became a huge celebrity.  He was very vocal in pleading with the public not to reveal his condition around his young children,  as professionals had all cautioned to let them have their childhood until he became too sick to hide it any more.  I loved that there was so much compassion and his children’s welfare was respected.  I will never forget him and his Tigger/Eeyore reference.   He wrote a book and as an avid reader I can’t believe I am saying this but, I recommend highly watching the DVD instead…

I love my green bubble necklace and look forward to wearing it more this Spring/Summer!

As for my Weigh in, I lost 1.8 pounds.  This all happened in the last two days, when I exercised by doing the fluidity ballet bar, Yoga and stretching,but didn’t pick up weights or resistance bands.   So maybe I will try that again this week!  Exercise witht the weights for 5 days then two days before weigh in stop.   I don’t like that idea because I love feeling the weights in my hand and how strong it makes me feel… If I maintain the weight loss and can loss a pound or more each week this way, then maybe I have found the magic formula.. wish me luck in this experiment!

This isn’t what I wore to my meeting,but I didn’t feel like taking photos today, so used pictures I had in reserve.  The top, vest and shoes are all thrifted pieces.   It’s funny how some days I have no thrifted items and others I group together…

Dear Readers, Did you see The Last Lecture?   If so, what made the biggest impression on you?  Are you a Tigger or an Eeyore?  Do you see others in your life as one or the other?  If you haven’t done this before, it’s an interesting thing to ask as you go about your day, ” Is he or she a Tigger or an Eeyore? ”  or “Am I being a Tigger or an Eeyore today?”   I believe self evaluation is a good thing to embrace and leads to a  healthy mind ! Remember I subscribe to this journey being one of Mind, Body & Spirit!  

Gratitude:  I am grateful for such a wonderful WW meeting and the opportunity to connect with a group of wonderful people!  I am grateful that my husband works so hard for our family(he had a crazy late night and was back up after only 4hours of sleep for a meeting).   I am grateful to my 17 year old for his thoughtful gesture that made my husband feel loved and appreciated ( My husband always drops a few pieces of candy into my son’s lunch.  This morning when he left for school he unlocked my husband’s vehicle and put candy and a note on his steering wheel, telling him to have a great day).   I am grateful for another thrifting adventure with a dear friend.

I love the accessorizing with green it is such an awesome shade,

I like this Tigger/Eeyore reference. I think we can all choose to be optimistic or pessimistic on a daily basis. It’s what you make of each day that matters. Congrats on your loss at WW. All your hard work paid off! Heather
