How Mousie Got Her Groove Back




er, sorry for that.

I’m just a little proud of myself for two great weeks. See, getting back on this whole Weight Watchers thing was just as easy as I remembered it. It truly is like riding a bicycle. Even with GOING OUT WITH FRIENDS AND EATING AT RESTAURANTS AND HAVING NO CONTROL OVER YOUR MEALS FOR FOUR NIGHTS. Take THAT all you nay-sayers!

But here’s my beef du jour (not to be confused with au jus). Aujourd'hui, when I put in my weight, it told me to retake the points quiz. Fine and dandy with me. But at the end, it robbed me of a bloody point! Now, if I remember correctly, when I joined meetings for the first time in December of 2008 and I took the quiz for the momentum plan at THIS weight, I had 23 daily POINTS. Now it wants to give me 22 daily POINTS.

To misquote Teen Talk Barbie, math is hard.

Which is probably why I do Weight Watchers Online.

But I will be a brave little soldier and go forward. I will miss my little POINT, though I hardly knew him. He served me well.

Speaking of serving me well, this loss also puts about a 4lb dent into my goal for the X-weighted Challenge. This leaves me with about 13lbs left to lose, buckets full of motivation, a grin from ear-to-ear and my self-confidence is improving every day.

Oh, and I was blessed with a nephew this weekend named Declan who I am over the moon about. I haven’t had the opportunity to meet him yet but I am already in love with him ♥

Awesome loss Marie, whohoo!!

The same thing happened to me with the points but it was because I had a birthday. I gained a bit of weight so I thought I'd be up 1 point but turns out nope, the older you get the less points you get.
