Well, the news isn’t horrible considering the crap I went through over the last two weeks. I missed last Saturday’s meeting because of Grampa’s funeral. I never do as well when I miss a meeting. I also wore heavier clothing this week. I had on long jeans and a long sleeve shirt and socks. Usually I have been wearing very thin capris and a T-shirt. I’m thinking the jeans weigh a lot. I wish I had a scale to weigh them. They wouldn’t let me take tham off at weight watchers. Ha! Ha! That would have been a sight. Me and my purple underwear.
I ended up gaining 1 pound over the two weeks so I am thinking I actually stayed the same and didn’t gain anything because of the heavy clothes which surprises me because it seemed I did some emotional eating.
Why do I think this won’t work? I used to sell this type of stuff.
Tonight I am going to a party at my niece’s house. They just bought the house this summer. They hadn’t sold their old house which is on the same street two houses down from the new one. They rented it and the week before the people were supposed to move in, the old house burned to the ground. It was an electrical fire. Thank goodness no one was living in it yet. The bad thing is my neice hadn’t moved all their stuff out and her wedding gown and photos etc. were burned. She’s only been married two years.
I haven’t seen the new house yet so I’m excited to do that. It’s much larger than the old one and has a lake view. Plus I am always up for a good party. She said she would have a vegetable tray for me. You gotta love those veggie trays.
These save me at parties. I can eat all night for almost 0 points.
I’ll bring my camera and hopefully have permission to post some party pictures. I’m going in my traditional costume–myself. I’ll do an interview at the party. Should be interesting because I will have a few rum and diet cokes. They are only 2 points each.
Well, I have to go take a shower and get ready. Ta! Ta! WTF does Ta! Ta! mean anyway.
Well, now we know!!!
