At today's meeting Sheila got to goal. She's lost 114 pounds in 2 years and 3 months. Now I mention the length of time because of course someone in the meeting asked that and it immediatley irritated me. I strongly believe that it doesn't matter how long it takes and you shouldn't compare yourself to someone else. Of course I remember the day she started Weight Watchers and I don't like to think about how many years I've been going and I'm still 40lbs from goal. I don't feel badly or think I'm a failure in any way. It's more the cost of all those meetings. I wouldn't miss them for the world. Losing weight is as much an emotional battle as a pound battle. We all just take it a day at time.
I was up 0.2 and once again I'm okay with that. I tracked one day last week, went out to dinner the night before weigh in. I went to winefest but didn't last long as I couldn't stop coughing. I'm thinking the ice cream at dessert and the wine tasting didn't go so well. I cut out early, waited forever for a bus but was in bed at a decent hour. Never coughed when I got home and slept through the night.
I did purchase a new 3 month tracker as I'm serious about a fresh start. Picked up healthy groceries today. Had a bit of heart palpatations at Safeway. I used my debit card and the girl told me it says refer to Branch. My first thought oh f#@$ not again! I immediately though my card had been skimmed again. I was mad on the way home thinking I've been so careful. Well I got home and no call from the bank and I can access my online banking and there's nothing suspect. Now I'm wondering if it was an issue with the bank. On Monday I'll go to my bank and try it a bank machine so if there's an issue I can just pop in and take care of it. If there is an issue I'm going cash only from now on. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on the online banking until then.
So today I'm trying to write a rough copy of my paper and I'm half done and now on here. I'll try to finish it but if insipiration leaves me I'll be back at tomorrow morning.
Alas, I hope everyone has a great weekend!
