120 lbs. Last week I passed Go and collected the Gold. I’ve become a Weight Watchers Lifetime Member this year (for once a New Year’s Resolution kept)! I wasn’t an exercise psycho, didn’t force myself to go to the gym when I was tired. I drank wine, ate ice cream, and mostly tried to give my body food that lasts, that keeps me full, food that my body likes. A lot of Greek yogurt for this Greek Tragedy.
I set my goal, and kept within 2 lbs. of it for six consecutive weeks. I set the goal at 125 lbs. I’m 5’4 1/2″. I’m 120 lbs., so now that I’m a lifetime member, so long as I never weigh in past 127 lbs. I no longer need to pay. But I can weigh in less than my goal weight and not have to pay. So for all of you out there who Weight Watchers it up, pick a higher/ Thanksgiving weight as your goal number.
In the above photo, I am indeed, at a meeting, in front of a room full of women, punctuated with three men. And I am crying. Who took the photo? One of the other members who keeps a journal of all the inspiring stories she hears. How nice is that, seriously? The world really can be such a loving, warm place… especially in a room full of dieting women.
