Saturday Morning Weigh In

Was down .4 this morning. I was expecting a gain so I was happy to hear otherwise. The WW leader announced this morning that there are going to be some changes and new stuff added. She couldn't say what but that it was exciting. I am so but so curious to find out! Does anyone happen to know what these changes are?

A friend of a friend of mine has been going through some rough times with her family. They don't have bad intentions and they want to see their her happy. The unfortunate part is that they are going about it the wrong way. Two weeks ago, she awoke to find a surprise gift from her brother. Right outside her bedroom door was a box of Smart For Life cookies. Now my first reaction was " Oh my gosh, what an #*&*(#&%(*#&*(&#(*&%*(#". He really isn't the whateverwordyouwanttothinkisaid. He simply has absolutely no knowledge on how complex of an issue it is and how the desire to lose has to come from within. I sound like a fortune cookie. I apologize.

Apparently she's been talking about gastric bypass surgery or following the cookie diet. I've said it before and I'll say it again: We must fix what's between the ears first and the rest will follow. You're not really fixing the issue, you're just masking it. You wouldn't just put a bandaid on a cut that needs stitches. The cut needs to be properly cared for and given time to heal.

I grabbed another Week 1 book at the meeting, so if she does contemplate joining Weight Watchers, she can get a sneak peak on how the plan works.

I caved and bought a McDonalds breakfast this morning (12 lousy points!) and I feel nauseous now. I used to be able to eat those sandwiches ( times two) without a problem. My body just can't tolerate the grease anymore. Now that I've blown half of my points on a lousy breakfast sandwich, I'm going to let my stomach settle and go for a run. The rest of the day will be light eating. Yummy windcakes and air soufflees for me!

You are exactly right, fortune cookie! LOL Nothing will fix what our bodies are like without fixing between the ears. I know this, yet still I wallow in the self-loathing and pity. I am glad you're here to remind me that I really need to get back to the gym.

Thanks for the tip on the spice rub. We are addicted to everything Costco it seems! :)

for the new info, check out my blog....from earlier this week....i put up some information i was able to find.

Also i know what you mean about eating grease. After eating healthier its really hard to go back to the bad foods....which is a good thing though

Congrats on your loss! We were told last week about impending changes Dec 7-13 as well.

I know what you mean about the McD's breakfast. I used to love the McGriddle, but the last time I ate one it felt like a ball of grease in my stomach all day :(

good job on the loss!!
And you are right about the between the ears stuff - must come either first, at near the beginning of this journey, or else it won't work.

Great job on the loss! You are so right, weight loss is 99.9% mental!

The person who invented those cookies should be forced to sustain on them for the rest of their lives. Along with the advertisers and retail people who sell them. Ridiculous it is...

Hope your friend finds the help she needs!

Great job on your loss, and thanks for your post, I have been given "several" gifts in my life and pamphlets on WL surgery and even have had people call my husband "concerned" about me. Its not nice and those helpful "gifts" make us feel already worse than we did before.

I hope you can be there for your friend in a positive way. I think half of our battle is mental, and boy do you sound different than you used to when you started, you make me smile and I am so proud of you, look at how far you have come. I can't wait for the day when a Mcdonalds breakfast sandwich makes me sick!
