So after a really frustrating weigh in last week, I had pretty much decided I was not going to my meeting tomorrow. It’s been a crazy busy week, and I just didn’t think I could handle the disappointment in myself. I haven’t tracked my food this week, which really just pisses me off. I mean, who do I think I’m kidding here? Who am I hurting? Yip, me.
As disappointed as I was in myself last week, the meeting was really awesome. The leader had all of the members who were at Lifetime (goal weight and keeping it off) tell what they do that works best for them to keep the weight off.
One member focused on power foods. Lean meats, fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Another member walked 30 minutes everyday, rain or shine. And another member continues to journal her food to hold herself accountable.
One member said that no matter what, she always comes to a meeting. She mentioned that when she was given her goal weight, she thought there was no way possible she could get there. She felt that she was at an age that it wasn’t possible, and that she weighed more than that in high school. I was crying like a baby on the inside. THAT’S MY STORY! Then other members mentioned how they too, had thought there was no way possible they could reach their ideal weight, and had gone to the doctor to get a note to say their body weight could be higher than the BMI guidelines and that they would be perfectly healthy. I DID THAT! You have to have a note from your doctor if you want your goal weight set above the BMI.
So, I had decided the next time I saw the woman that made me cry (on the inside, like a baby), I was going to ask her for her number, and see if she could help me get to my goal weight. Well, today I had decided NOT to go to the meeting, but weigh at home, and I would be fine, and return next week with happy results.
So I walk into a store, I rarely shop at, and there she is! That woman that made me cry (on the inside). She works there! I had to talk to her. I said “Oh my goodness, we’re you at the ww meeting in Olathe last Friday?” To which she replied “yes”. Then I said, “you made me cry, on the inside”. And then I explained why. She totally wrote down her name and phone number and is meeting me at my meeting tomorrow.
Coincidence, I don’t think so.
