Weight Loss Wednesday

I am sure you are all on the edge of your seats. A late post? Why? Did she make her 10% goal? Was the boat wood, or aluminum? (Little Veggie Tales reference there...) Drum roll please . . . . I DID IT!! 10% off woo-hoo!!! I am so relieved, I cannot even tell you. I also dropped another 2 on top of it, so I was down 3 for this week, 24.6 for 12 weeks. The sad news is that the session at the Y is now over, and won't be starting up again until January 7. I can go into the center, weigh in, and attend a meeting, but there is only one session that lets you bring kids. Blech. My instructor, Lisa, does two meetings on Monday, but who wants to weigh in on a Monday? Not me. I'll try the Tuesday morning one that allows children, and we'll take it from there. Funny thing is, the center is right near the Jenny Craig center. I wonder if I'll run into my old counselor from there. That would be as awkward as running into an old boyfriend with whom you had a poor break up. What would I say? "Um, hi. Yeah, I was just at Weight Watchers. You look good, though. How are the frozen foods?"

In other fun news, my friend and Zumba instructor has been talking with me about becoming an instructor. Wouldn't that be fun? I a pretty sure it's because my hips move like lightning and because I'm part Latina. By way of Germany. My mom was an aerobics instructor back in the day of leotards and sweat bands. They did really fun routines to songs like "Jump!" and "Dancing on the Ceiling" and "Caribbean Queen." I'm pretty sure that last one was a cool-down song. I used to go with her and do my math homework, which is how I remember the songs. It would be muy divertido (that means "really fun") to be a Zumba instructor. I'll let you know how it goes.

Congrats on not just meeting the 10% but exceeding it. Way to go. As a former WW myself I have to tell you that I went to Monday weigh ins and people who attend teh Monday meetings statistically lose more weight than any other meeting day. It is worth considering. As far as bring children to the meeting I never asked I just took who I needed to come with me. Better to ask forgiveness than permission.

Way to go, girl!

Very funny, clever, witty post this morning. Congrats on that weight loss. We'll keep each other on track during our Thanksgiving feast.

I am proud of you! They have Zumba classes at my gym, but alas, I can't go because of Toby. $4 an hour child care can really add up. Plus he already goes for a half day on Tuesdays when I take German. I've heard it's tons of fun though. So, I'll stick to my SOS class where children are welcome and walking on the indoor track.
