Success…well, sort of!Posted: October 28, 2011
I went to my Weight Watchers weigh-in this morning feeling fairly optimistic. I had been on my own scale this morning so I knew I was at a loss….2pds to be exact. I must have looked disappointed though when I stepped off the scale because the woman weighing me in gave me a pep talk…”You are losing at just the right rate. This is a nice steady pace. You will keep the weight off…” Yada Yada Yada.
I don’t know what I was expecting. It is her job to be perky and positive, even when the listener has heard it all a thousand times. It is the Weight Watcher scale’s job to be objective and accurate, even when faced with someone as cute and worthy as I am. Perhaps I was expecting some sore of weight loss miracle. Like the Weight Watchers scale was going to give me an extra 5 pd loss because really that’s what I deserve. I tried hard, exercised regularly, and really, really want to be skinny.
To make matters worse, I have been attending the meetings with my Miraculously Melting neighbor. She is down 11 pds. She pisses me off… Moo.
It is not that I don’t want her to succeed. Really, I do. I just want to lose as much weight or, if I have to be honest, maybe even more, than she is. I am not just a Bovine, I am sort of a bitchy Bovine.
At least I was down, so I won’t complain too much. I am planning on losing another pound this week despite the Halloween temptations. Wonder if Miraculous Meltor is tempted by Halloween candy. Finally, I know what to do with all of our Halloween candy on Tuesday morning.
