I did it. I weighed in, and I’m up 8 pounds since my last weigh-in. I knew that I wouldn’t like what I saw on the scale, but as I said yesterday…I admit it, and I take responsibility for it. And that’s really all I have to say about it.
Actually, I do have one more thing to say. Attendance was down in my meeting tonight, as I’ve heard it has been in other meetings. And it would have been very easy to skip the meeting/weigh-in tonight, but I am so glad I went. I am proud of myself for going – for keeping the promise to myself to show up and keep trying.
I stepped on the scale feeling discouraged, and I stepped off of the scale feeling discouraged. But I left the meeting feeling refueled and refreshed and ready to take on the new week. That’s why it is so important for me to attend the meetings – even those that I don’t want to attend. It’s why Weight Watchers works.
I’m so thankful for the group I’ve found here. When I left New York, I could not imagine finding another group that was filled with compassionate and like-minded people, but I have. And I’m thankful for it. Now I’ve said everything I have to say today. 😉
