As you guys are probably aware, I've fallen off. I fell of the wagon - it was bad last night... I consumed an entire Baconator (Wendy's latest hellish creation) and it was delicious.
So, I tried something new today. I decided that I should go in for a mid week meeting anyway! I wasn't going to go, and I don't want you to get the impression that I'm some brave soul or anything like that. To motivate myself, I had to promise my sis-in-law that I was going to pick her up to go otherwise, I would have come home and laid in bed looking crazy.
The funny thing about guilt is that if you allow it, you will find yourself demotivated and standing exactly where you are, never progressing.
Plus that last time that I went, I had gained 1.8 pounds, and that was some mess that I really wasn't too enthusiastic about telling anyone... (Hello, reason that I haven't blogged in two weeks!).
Instead, today I girded my loins and took my wobbly kester in for a meeting. The instructor tonight was much like that of an AA meeting. She literally made us explain the reason that we were there and exactly what motivates us...
I had written on my paper that I didn't like the way that I looked naked... I had to say that... I don't like the way I look naked!!! In front of a room full of strangers.
It was soooo liberating. Everyone had something. There was a doctor that said that she didn't want to be the hypocritical,fat doctor that tells patients what's best for them and can't follow her own advice.
I feel so much better about the whole thing. I don't really know why, it's just better now.
I love that instructor!
And to top it all off, I lost .6 pounds. I was afraid for nothing. Hmph... what a trip.
The lesson for today, fellow Weight Watchers, is to remember not to allow yourselves to be paralyzed with guilt and fear.
You may just find that there was nothing to fear after all!
