Ignoring the Ticker

See that ticker in the right hand corner? The one that says I'm three pounds into my second ten pound loss? Yup, it's a lie. It's was true when I last changed it, but not so much anymore! The ticker is supposed to help motivate me, but I only change it when I'm losing. When I'm gaining, I ignore it completely.

It's a fair mite off at the moment and that's why I'm going back to weight watchers in the morning. Yup, apparently, I'm back at a place in my life where I need to pay someone and step on the scales for a total stranger in order to keep myself accountable in the eating department. Pitiful, but what ya gonna do?

I'm actually pretty excited. My friend who is deaf is joining with me. I get to interpret the class for her and we'll try to motivate each other. I'm not a licensed interpreter, just a friend who tries to sign, but I LOVE it! Interpreting for her will be a fun challenge (I'm pretty good at church words, but weight loss words, not so much.)

Hopefully, I'll be able to make myself change the ticker to reflect reality soon, but until then, you can find me at weight watchers every week. A bit poorer, and slightly more svelte.


  1. Good for you for doing the signing thing for your friend.
    That would be totally motivating.

    Ya, the ticker.............I don't have one.
    Probably should though.

  2. You can do it! I'm right there with ya!

  3. You go girl!! I have felt a little ridiculous that I have to pay someone to motivate me to lose weight but I guess we do what we have to do! Love you lots!!

  4. I think anything that helps me lose weight is great. It's when I pay and then don't obey the rules that I really get upset with myself. Be STRONG, and we'll see you slimmer in a couple of months.

  5. I found your blog through your FB page. I'm so glad to catch up with your family and I LOVE your posts about reading to your kids. Can't believe how much your family has grown and now you're a grandma! I miss you!
