Weigh In Day

Posted on: November 20, 2013

We had a great WW meeting today, looking forward to Thanksgiving! 

We did an exercise where we chose what to put on our plate and how many points each food item would be.

Mine came out to 27 pts, about what I am suppose to eat for an Entire Day.  


According to WW pumpkin pie was 14 pts!!! 

As a Weight Watcher one day is not going to mess us up as we have extra weekly points available and we can counter it with low points the day before  or after.  This is what I love about WW, that we look at real life issues regarding eating.


I put this outfit on today and looked at my husband and said,

A leather jacket, boots and animal print, I am bad a**!”  


I lost almost a pound this week and was happy, especially  with our celebrating my son’s 18th b’day on Sunday at Dave & Busters. 

I also realized that I planned poorly and must not gain any weight back over Thanksgiving because the following Tuesday I will have completed my  6 weeks of maintenance and become a Lifetime Member of WW.  

No Pressure There 

That means just two weeks for my Before and After Post on my Weight Loss! 

Dear Readers, I went thrifting after my meeting and as I was coming out of the dressing room I encountered a woman trying on an ugly pullover sweater and scowling at herself in the mirror. She asked me if the sweater was ugly and of course I had to tell her the truth. One of my favorite sayings is ” Don’t ask the question if you are not ready to hear the answer?”  Much to my relief she said she wasn’t sure it was ugly enough and went on to explain that her neice is hosting an Ugly Sweater Thanksgiving!   She wasn’t too happy about the idea and was jokingly grumbling.  She laughed at one point in my conversation and said, ” Well, at least I did something good today, I gave you a good laugh!”  

If only she knew how much I needed that laugh as a sadness has come over me. I think it will be short lived, but I am feeling a sense of loss right now …. It is what it is! 


I am grateful for the fun expereince with the woman and the ugly sweater!

I am grateful for my WW meeting and looking at how many points a Thanksgiving Dinner with my particular choices of food would be.

I am grateful for dresses, leather and boots and how they make me feel tough and feminine at the same time.

I am grateful that this morning my husband and I were not trying to get out the door at the exact same time and how much different that felt to leave the house first.

Very sassy! Looks great!

Congratulations on the loss. I know how hard it gets the closer you get to goal.

Pumpkin pie….14 points is a lot. Yikes!

Way to go with the weight loss despite a bday celebration! It’s hard to maintain/lose weight this time of year.
