Thankfully, a coworker came through on working
the extra 2-hour shift that needed covered tonight so I was glad I could attend
my WW meeting.
It isn't a meeting I would go to often because traffic
getting there was a nightmare. But, it was a good meeting. The
leader was a sub for the sub and I've never met her, although she might have looked
familiar. Her name is Tammy and she was a 30-year veteran of the armed
forces. She started out by sharing she was nervous to come lead a meeting
with a group of people she had never met. Then, she realized that in her
military career that she moved all over the country meeting new people but was never
nervous because they all shared a common bond...the military. She
paralleled that with WW in that while she doesn't know any of us, we all
share a common bond and an understanding amongst ourselves. I
thought that was a really great way to look at it and I was glad she
shared. I also didn't care for the meeting member dynamic so I think I'll
stick my usual Monday night meeting. I just wasn't able to
attend early this week due to work.
My weight was up 0.4 from last week and
since it is a short time between Thursday and Monday (my next WI), I'll focus
on just getting that 0.4 pounds off. Since I have plans on Friday and I'm
sure Kenyon and I will eat out on Saturday, we shall see how it goes.
I’m already trying to get a plan in place and try to peep-talk myself through
the next few days.
I really do miss those large losses and I want
to see them again! I just need to push myself harder and be stricter
with myself when it comes to the extras that prevent that and my inner temper
