Weight Watchers Monday Fa La La La La Laaaaaaa La La La La
Posted Mar 03 2009 11:33pm
Sorry for the LAME cell phone picture today... I can't remember where I put my Canon. All I can remember is that I set it somewhere it doesn't belong. Anyone else do things like that?
So I went to WW's today & changes are afoot. Our WONDERFUL AMAZING SWEET KIND SINCERE leader Kathy announced that after 4.5 years she is stepping down. SO many people were sharing stories about how she had inspired them as they were sobbing (of course I would NEVER cry at something like that... okay... maybe just a tiny bit...) and Kathy was also emotional. I had to break the ice so I announced to the group that after the meeting we were all going over to Cold Stone Creamery to drown our sorrows. After Kathy broke the news she said that we need a new leader for our group.
Here's where it gets interesting...
Several people suggested that I should lead the group! And others in the room turned around in their seats to back up the idea. ME??? REALLY??? I was so flattered! The district rep was also in the meeting & asked me to stay afterwards with one other person who was also interested in sharing the position. I told her that my husband is a physician who has a weight loss program and SHE SAID SHE WAS ALREADY AWARE OF THAT (I guess they have been talking about me?) and she'd have to see if it would be considered a conflict.
Regardless of what happens- I'm touched. And thrilled. A year ago, I was on my way to weighing 250 pounds. Today I am being considered for a leadership position with Weight Watchers. What a difference 6 months can make!
I should also report that I lost .6 pounds bringing me back into the 180's. I should pray to get this little jobbie so that MAYBE I'll be re-inspired to work the rest of this weight off! I'll be sure to keep you posted!
