I Didn’t Even Throw Up

December 8, 2016 — 2 Comments

I did it. I lead my first Weight Watcher meeting. I didn’t throw up, or stutter, or go blank in the middle of a sentence. I imagined everyone in their underwear and the meeting went great!.

Kidding.

But just to make them giggle, I did think about asking them to take off their clothes so I wouldn’t be so nervous. I decided to relax, be myself and utilize the tools that I learned in training over the weekend.

There were about 40 members in the meeting and they were all so nice and welcoming. I know what it is like to go into your WW meeting, only to discover your fabulous Leader has a sub. Yesterday, not only was I a sub, but I was brand spanking new!

Carol is my mentor/trainer and the Leader of the meeting that I was able to do Tuesday morning. She has been wonderful to me and I feel really lucky to have her. She promised me that this was a great meeting and that they would all welcome me. They did. I felt comfortable and they were a sharing bunch, which helped the meeting to flow nicely. Although I have a lot to learn, I was pleased with how my very first meeting went.

From that meeting, I went with Carol to a different meeting where I was scheduled to work as a receptionist. Shortly after we opened the doors, two of my friends (Thank you Becki and Tammie! You girls rock!!) from my own personal meeting showed up to watch me lead a meeting! What? How awesome were they to come watch me? They made me feel so good, but I was not scheduled to lead that meeting. Of course Carol overheard them, I introduced them all, and Carol practically insisted that I lead the meeting, so I did. Two under my belt!

I will say that I was unprepared mentally to do a second meeting and for some reason my nerves kicked in. I didn’t do nearly as well at the second meeting as I did the first, but I did remember to do a few things that I had missed at the first meeting. All in good time.

I could not be happier right now. It feels so good to get to give back to the Weight Watcher community. What a great group of people to be associated with!!

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 7 SP

Okay, it was a different flavor, but I did have an RXBar and a Banana. I had the Apple Spice and I loved it!

Lunch – 6 SP or 12 SP??

I bought this salad at Trader Joe’s at 3:30 in the afternoon and I was starving. When I got home, I dumped everything from the container into a big bowl, mixed it all up and ate every single bite. It made a huge salad. After I finished eating my salad,  I scanned the barcode with my Weight Watcher App for the SmartPoints. I did not realize that the salad was two servings. The app said that it was 6 SmartPoints for 1 container, however, the container said that it contained two servings. When I entered in the individual nutritional information on the package, the WW app said 6 Smarporoints.

I really don’t know if I ate 6 or 12 SmartPoints for lunch. Either way, it was a really good salad!

Dinner – 5 SP

Pretty simple. Cod prepared in the skillet in Olive Oil, Smashed Cauliflower, Broccolini sautéed in a skillet with just a little Olive Oil and Sea Salt.

    I’m so happy to have a couple under my belt now. I’m sure I will walk away from each meeting wondering if I could have made it better. Then I will work at making it better. I do love that I had friends come. It really did mean a lot to me.

    Labels ARE confusing. Egads. At least was a double salad serving and not a double something else that could have ended in a really bad points day. Lol.

    I will be at my meeting on Friday as a member, and I am looking forward to it.

    You have a great weekend too Nancy!!

  2. You know the second group most likely thought you did just as well as the first group. I bet Carol thought so.
    That took a lot of confidence/courage to jump into the second meeting.
    I keep saying what you put out in the world comes back to you. You put nice things out there and it comes back to you when your friends come to cheer you on.
    Those labels can be so confusing–at least you were eating healthy.
    I need to go to Trader Joe’s–it’s in an area I don’t usually go to.
    Have a great weekend–you certainly deserve it.
    Oh I wonder if it will feel different sitting in your meeting on Friday now??
