What's Funny...and What's Not Funny....

I like Cookies....I like Cake....and once I know the WW point assigned too it..I make a decision about what I'm going to eat and what I'm not going to eat.....

So, here's what's not funny. No one knows what internal battles I may face picking up one cookie vs many....but when I pick up one friggin cookie, I don't want folks looking at me like I'm about to blow up 200lbs instantly from eating it.

I know some people feel that if a cookie is a trigger food, than don't even acknowledge it or eat it...But one of the reasons why I joined WW was because I wanted to learn what it actually did too me & my body other than, because it has sugar & fats, it's not good for you. Common sense eludes me when it comes to baked goods, lol, so NO, I didn't know or care that if I ate too many, it's going to stick to my thighs and sides....

Now, present day,  I do care. Now, I want to know how to include it in my life and not completely take it away. I was so upset, not too long ago, when a comment was made too me, when I grabbed a mini Kit Kat, "Alright, don't get right back to where you was." Then there was a, "I'm just kidding."

First of all, a joke (in my mind) is funny when everyone is laughing. Not just the person who makes the comical remarks. Watching Barney on How I Met Your Mother is funny. Watching my girls make fart jokes is funny (and stinky), but saying, "Don't get back to where you was." Is not funny too me.

I can't stand being watched for every move that I make, especially if I'm being watched for the sole reason for someone to find a flaw in me. I'll beat you to the punch. I have LOTS of FLAWS. I know there is a such thing as tough love, but I give myself enough of it, and the people who are supposed to be close to me should know it, but I guess they figure I need more.

So anyway, after the comment was made, all I said was, "Seriously? Yeah, that's what I'm going to do." and I just walked away. I can't imagine being watched for the rest of my life, just to see if I fail. How do you deal with that? Tell them to f** off? Or is showing them better than any word that you can say?

The trues answer will be, Forget what they say, think about how you feel, blah, blah, but my feelings get hurt too, damn.

Got my 10lb's Lost Weight Watcher's Ribbon...!

Okay so after being out of town, eating some good old cajun food, coming home, and catching a cold...The first thought that hit me when I jumped on the scale, was, "Please just don't let me have gained any weight."

Not only did I NOT gain weight while I was gone...(and had to guess estimate a lot of my points), but I dropped below 200lbs!!! I was struggling to break that 200 mark and I did! I'm 198 today and hopefully will get down to 188 in another month or so. :)

I think what's great about Weight Watchers, are the meetings, and talking to the people there. I'm putting less pressure on myself to hurry up and get the weight off, although I do want it off....I'm actually taking the time to enjoy myself! I'm learning to not dread food! It's pretty cool.

At my meeting today, our speaker talked about good comebacks for people during Thanksgiving time, when people who know you're on WW, are going to say a million things too you about your food choices. 

"Should you be eating that?" "Can I eat this in front of you?" "Oh come on, why are you on a diet during the food holidays?"

It's funny the way he answered those questions without hesitation.."Yes, Go for it, and because I want to be on one." And then he moved on. That's it. There's no long drawn out explanation of why you're doing it. You're doing it and then you move on to the next topic of conversation. How awesome is that! LOL

When I went out of town, my family did that too me, to an extent. The constant questions of, "Should you eat that?" "Should I fix you something else?" and the famous "Are you SURE you can eat that?" Then there is a smirk and an, "Okay, if you say so."

After the meeting, I happily bounced to my car, happy that I can say, "Yes, I can eat it. Yes, I am sure. And please KMA." lol  Just kidding about the Kiss my a** part, lol.
