Shhhh…. It’s a secret…. Can you keep it? I hope so cause here it goes: My mother knows nothing of my joining WW+. What?! You may ask. Why? Well it certainly isn’t because she’s not supportive. In fact she may be one of the most supportive mothers ever. Always encouraging, always happy with my success and failures, always always happy with me. Neither of my parents were ever ones to criticize my weight. Both were always just happy for me to be… well… me. So since this has been a decision I’ve made myself I know they’ll be overjoyed for me. I’m going home to visit them on April 4th for the weekend. Montana. Oh home that I love. Since I’ll have been on WW+ for almost 3 months I’m hoping they’ll notice a change. In appearance and in life. A “life-change.”
Praise P+. P+ is a dear friend of mine who has been a WW+ lifer for… well… life. She’s had her ups and downs and still keeps moving up. Down actually. Weight-wise as least because for 20+ years she’s been losing poundage and inspiring others to lose their own. Biggest Loser has nothing on this woman. I don’t even watch Biggest Loser but I know that adorable Bob is not even close in adorableness to P+.
Therefore after years of her encouraging me to take the step… I’ve decided to join Weight Watchers +. Apparently PLUS is their new program… thus +. You got me. I’m just going to follow the guidelines and let them play me like a fiddle. Hopefully my tune will be sharpened and adjusted… singing bright and clear, taunt and “fit as a fiddle.” I don’t understand how the program works, but I started 8 weeks ago… and viola’… 21.6 pounds lost!
So here’s to the “Life Change” that WW+ and P+ are going to help me make. I’m hoping that I can continue… through thick… to thin… or just less thick. And perhaps someday I’ll inspire others and be my own: K+. Not just a K.
I hate to leave you… but I really must go. So goodnight, sweetheart, goodnight. Goodnight who? Goodnight extra fluffy, chubby, pudgy, gloriously round self. I really do hate to leave you… but I really, really, really must go.
