Did you know that I am still doing Weight Watchers? That I have put a running tally on my sidebar? I haven’t pointed it out before because for the past three weeks I have been playing around with the same 1½ pounds. It’s very frustrating when that happens. Well, this week I have gotten past that! look to the right and you’ll see…….
Yes, I have now officially lost 19.6 pounds! and I swear that if I had used the bathroom once more before last night’s meeting ended, the other .4 would have come off.
For the past three weeks, I have sat in that meeting and listened to this one guy talk about a mantra that has worked for him. Let me just say that the word mantra makes me suspicious. It instantly puts me on edge – it seems all new age, touchy feely and I have a very deep vein of practicality. So when I first heard this guy talking about his mantra, I thought to myself what a moron. I think I may have even whispered the same to my girlfriend who is doing WW too.
Then the following week where I had gone up a bit and was sitting there all cranky & pissed, someone else spoke up about the mantra. About how the first guy inspired them and they tried the mantra and it worked. I had a brief thought of oh great now there’s two morons. But the proof is in the pudding (ha! gotta love a fat girl slinging food puns all around the place) and I gave it a try.
And then there were three morons. Sure enough at last night’s meeting I spoke up about the mantra.
I suppose I should tell you the mantra. Who among us doesn’t have a few pounds to lose?
Here it is ….. every day, a couple of times throughout the day I say out loud, I Am Going To Lose Two Pounds This Week!
I have very high hopes of making it to the twenty pound mark next week and would like to honor the occasion by having another contest! email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me your best mantra …..
