I went to the WW meeting on Saturday morning. Despite it being 8am, it is a very lively bunch and I really like the members. I’ve not really spent much time with the leader Maria but she also seemed pretty great. You could tell the meeting members really enjoy her. I also like how well she keep control of her group.
I did my WI, which I knew wouldn’t be pretty, and had a gain of 1.2 pounds. As the receptionist was filling out a new WW booklet for me she asked, “what are you going to do this week?” I thought to myself, didn’t really have any plans as of yet, and almost answered her. Then I realized she was asking what I was going to do about my GAIN this week. It is clearly not a social question.
I should have seen that one coming. I am the type of person that doesn’t really like comments at the scale. I have been doing this long enough that I often can be my own kick-in-the-pants so it isn’t necessary to have comments or counseling. For others it might be helpful. Maybe that person is drowning and needs somebody to throw them a life preserver. Despite usually being a pretty aware person, it doesn’t mean that there are those times when I could use a friendly check-in to knock some sense into me.
I love my WW member and leader support. I am so very lucky to have so much available to me. All I have to do is ask. Help is there. I am looking forward to the shift on my first round of training at Nampa PD. I will have Tuesday off and will be able to attend Donna’s meeting. I can’t wait!
