I almost went to bed without a weekly weigh-in post! Sorry, I’ve been single-momming it these last few days. Mancakes is off in Vegas gallivanting the casinos and enlightening higher ed folks with his masterful intellect and sweet social-justicey ways. Meanwhile, I’m living the dream in the middle of a snow storm trying to rationalize with a 21 month old why she needs to wait 90+ seconds for her oatmeal to be ready while she throws the mother of all tantrums before 7 am.
Anywho, let’s talk about Regina George instead. Who remembers this from Mean Girls?
Who doesn’t!? If you’re feeling awkward, I’ma need you to rent and watch Meangirls ASAP. Get with pop culture or get off my blog! I’m totally Regina George when it comes to fixating on a number. Ever since I began WW in November, I have been saying to myself “I wanna lose 20 pounds”. For some reason, 20 pounds is like, IT. Well, not “it” as in “that’s all! I’m done!”- but 20 pounds has always sounded like a milestone to me. 20 pounds is a significant amount of weight for anyone to lose and for me it would mean so much to be able to say that I lost this very even, very robust amount of weight. It is also an important number to me because the last time I saw my mom, which was over Thanksgiving, she had arrived after having lost 20 pounds. She looked like she felt like a million bucks and it was then that I decided I wanted to pay it forward. And it just so happens that she will be here tomorrow! And I am soooo close! Take a look:
EEK! I’m 1.6 lbs away from my first personal weight loss goal! I’m so close I can taste it! And well, technically speaking, although my mom will be in town tomorrow, she won’t be staying WITH ME until next week so I get one more weigh-in before she actually sleeps in our guest room…it’s on like donkey kong weight loss! Watch yo’self, fluff!
Also, Tuesdays are my new weigh-in days since my at-work meetings are now over. This means I have to take the train one stop to a WW center and today’s noon meeting was AWESOME! Darlene is the business, she is so energetic and fun and the group was really great. There’s even an older couple that attend this meeting and they are both doing WW and it’s adorable. I feel more at home with this group, it should be good stuff.
How’s everybody doing?? Any triumphs or setbacks to report? Anyone have any advice for little ‘ol me??
