Thanks So Much, Aquagirl!!

Sunday, January 13, 2013

My Weight Watcher success story presentation went well. There were about 30-35 people there at the Open House to hear it. My one regret was that Aquagirl (Cyndi) came especially to support me, but missed it. Originally my leader told me my presentation would be around 2 pm, but when I went to the 10 am meeting, she asked me to come back at 12:30. As soon as I walked in the room she called me to the front to present. Thanks, Aquagirl. I do appreciate your effort!!

If I had it to do over again, I'd have interrupted my leader and asked to come back up front. I had my before pictures with me and forgot about them. I could have shown them and I can always run my mouth about the amazing way it feels to be a healthy weight after more than 5 decades of overweight/obesity and trying and trying to get there.

There certainly are a lot of people who have lost more weight than I have. There are people who look more amazing than I do. There are other people who have yoyo dieted and lost weight many times. But there really aren't a whole lot of people who were overweight from the time they were one year old who finally in their sixth decade found what works for them. For me it is Weight Watchers/SparkPeople & SparkFriends/YMCA/Galloway Running/and playing actively with the grandkids!!

Oh, and by the way, the scale was 127.8 this morning, the lowest I've been in months!!

    So glad to hear it went well Marsha....was thinking about you. And congrats for the good weigh in....woo hoo! I know for sure after struggling with my weight for so long to find something that works for you. You are a wonderful example and so good of you to share your story.
Have a terrific Sunday.

    You had a great day and an opportunity to share
your success. And the added plus of seeing a new
lower number! WTG!

    emoticon emoticon Knew you'd knock the presentation out of the ballpark, Marsha. Sorry Aquagirl missed it.

And woo-hoo for the scale behaving itself, too!
