I've been attending a WW meeting as a member that last few weeks. I need to feel accountable to the WW gods and weighing in while I work just hasn't been hacking it. Tonight, was a very good reminder of the importance of losing weight. The topic involved not letting the scale dictate your entire week. I love the leader and this group is one of her smaller meetings, so I do like it. Her Saturday meetings average over 100 members per meeting, so this 35 member meeting is welcomed by me.
One of the funny quotes of the night came from a returning vacationer: What happens in Vegas, doesn't ALWAYS stay in Vegas!
The best part of the meeting occurred when a longtime member announced a milestone. She is a young gal in her early 20's and her ultimate goal was to lose enough weight to become eligible to join the military. 2 years of hard work, and 75 pounds later, she has reached her goal of being able to serve our country. That was a huge goal that I would never had dreamed of accomplishing. WTG! It was definitely a touching moment shared by all.
Next week, I'll be shooting for a loss! I've never weighed so late in the day 7:00pm seems like my bedtime, and I've been eating supper before hand as well. The Halloween candy didn't help at all this week either.
I did get my bodyfat measured again today and even though the weight is not moving much, I have lost a fair amount of bodyfat in the last 25 weeks. Went from just above 20% bf to just under 19% bf. An improvement, but I gotta work on the weight too.
