A Slight Gain

Yesterday was my weekly Weight Watchers weigh-in. Regardless of what the scale was gonna say, I like the way my pants are fitting, so I didn't sweat it. When I got on the lying bastard that is my scale at home, it said I had gained just a little bit. I thought to myself "So be it." My pants didn't feel binding in all the wrong places, so I thought "I'm good." Also, I caught another cold this week, so I wasn't able to exercise much.

After work yesteday I had to slog through the pouring rain. Added to that rain was the cold. It was very raw out there. By the time I got to my meeting my hands were starting to feel numb. I walked in, got on the scale, and saw that I did have a slight gain. It was less than a pound, so I wasn't bothered by it at all. Although the weather was craptacular, I even stayed for the meeting. Of course it was about strategies for coping with Halloween. I don't anticipate having trick-or-treaters, but it was a good meeting, nonetheless. I'm hoping that during this upcoming week I'll be able to exercise more so that I'll see a loss the next time I step on the scale.


  1. You need to start piling up the Vitamin D3 to prevent those colds so you can exercise, grrlfriend. It really works. 2000 units per day. Do you know people with darker skin absorb LESS D3 from the sun than fairer-skinned people? One more injustice for us, sista.

  2. Dang scales. I'm happy you have a good attitude about it tho. You have done well so far and I'm sure you will get down to where you want to be. Oh, CK talked me into the D3 also. Too early to tell, but I figure it can't hurt, so I've been taking it faithfully for about 3 weeks now.

  3. I'm going to go motherly on you Michelle. You're sick again, dear. Maybe you're pushing yourself too hard. School, work, excercise. Are you taking your vitamins? Tell those scales to bugger off. Give Topaz a nose tap from me.

  4. For the first year I didn't stay for the meeting but I finally decided that if I had time, I paid for it..may as well go.

    One thing that was hard for me to deal with and it should have been controlled by the leader(s) was, one of the members always brought her grand daughter, perhaps 3 years old and she would NOT be still..would not stop talking and etc etc. Very distracting.
