Weight Loss, here I come!

Hopefully, anyway. I went to my first Weight Watchers meeting today. I've never done weight watchers, which apparently is pretty rare because they were surprised when I said I'd never been to a meeting. Ever. But I need help getting rid of these last 20 or so pounds left over from Stella. It seems pretty easy, as long as you are diligent about keeping track of points. My first challenge will be tonight at book club. I'll have to resist all the heaps of food and be good. Although I will have a glass or two of wine. I'd give up dinner for that. I mean, you've got to have your priorities:) I REALLY wish I had a laptop again now. It would make keeping track of points so much easier if I could just type it into the online tracker and whammo have it calculate everything for me. As it is, I have to write it all in my horrible handwriting into the little paper tracker and look it up in the list or use my points tracker to calculate, then transfer it online when Stella sleeps. I think the biggest challenge is going to be calculating (and resisting too much of) Tim's delicious dinners. I already blew a large portion of my points on breakfast without realizing it. Perhaps I should have waited until today to go to the grocery store instead of yesterday?

I'm going to try the Friday morning meeting next week, though. Today all the women were at least 20 years older and were talking about their children going off to college and their grandchildren. Apparently Friday mornings are when the mommies go.

We've had two showings of our house. No feedback yet, but I bet their biggest complaint is probably "where's the hard tile in the bathrooms you promised in the listing?" I really wish our realtor had not put that in. Although we are doing it, we're just waiting for the tile people to call and schedule the install. Hopefully soon, it would rock to have the tile in for the open house Sunday!

I can understand the frustration with the listing, on both sides of the fence. It's really a bummer that they already put in the bit about the tile. People would be plesantly surprised if it didn't mention tile, but had it, but I'm sure they're irritated if it says tile and isn't.

Good luck with the Weight Watchers. I'm not sure if that's the sort of program that I would rock, or if it's too much tedium for me. I know that I'm resistant to the idea of it, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't work. I hope that it works out well for you. :)

Yeah Weight Watchers! I love it. I hit the wall about six weeks into it and did really bad for a week or two, but then got back on track. It really does work.
I just do it online, but I hear going to the meetings makes it even better because you can actually talk to people about it.

I'e been on weight watchers for about 6 weeks now. I've lost 8 pounds so far and I haven't even been that good about it on some days. I love it because you really can eat anything. I'm with Kelly and only do it online too. I love that you can look up just about anything and not have to do a lot of guessing

OMG, I do WW too! We can be WW buddies! Dont feel bad about switching meetings either. Each one is different and you'll find one that is right for you. I have a gazillion recipes to give you, and once you get your laptop back up and running, you can use the online recipe builder to help Tim tweak his recipes to fit your points. Good luck Sista!
