Dude, I'm losing it!

Supposedly after I left work Sunday, rumors started around the store that me and the wonder co-worker were sent home because we couldn't get along. I just laughed at everyone when they came up to me today asking, "What happened?!?" Excuse me...I am 57years old, since when do women my age get sent home for behavior problems? Wait, don't answer that. It turns out that wonder co-worker got into it with the other "experienced" employee (a.k.a. over 50 years old) He literally told her to put a sock in it. She got all butt hurt and went crying to the manager. The manager told me today that wonder co-worker said that EVERYONE was being mean to her and she couldn't handle it anymore. I say there was probably a good sale on somewhere that she didn't want to miss. Or she had homework due Monday that she didn't get finished. It had nothing to do with us telling her about her mouth. Or it may have had everything to do with it. Who knows? I just know that she wasn't there today and it was peace and quiet and we all got a lot of happy work done. Together. As a team.
So the big news!!!
I went to my first weigh in after the first week. (Trumpets sounding..dun dun da da)
FIVE POUNDS LOST!!! 5.2 pounds to be exact. I'm so very happy. I will keep it up this week. I know I probably won't lose that much again, but every ounce off is that much closer to freedom for me. Freedom from the fat, freedom from the high blood pressure, freedom from foot pain hopefully. YAY!
I struggled to drink all my fluids, I forgot my vitamin five out of the seven days, I ate a Snickers Bar and some Pringles. But I did count them in, so it was all okay. The best thing I found out is that I tend to think I want to eat and I forced myself to wait to see if I was really hungry before shoving something in my mouth. I also would just get up and get a drink of water before I would eat. That killed two birds with one stone. I got my liquid and I quelled the "hunger" most times.
All in all I am quite happy this week!
What are you happy about this week?

Way to go! Keith and I started WW today at home! Counting points, watching each other's weigh-ins. We've got to get the cholesterol down. And then there's the weight. Yuck. But you, my friend, are the one who inspired me to get going on this, so I absolutely thank you. I'll let you know next week if we've been successful.

Congratulations, sounds like the program is working good for you, that's a great weight loss (your knees and such are going to be so happy). Sorry the co-worker is such a pain, sounds a royal... to work with. Maybe you'll luck out and she won't come back for you to have to deal with.

Remember me? LOL

Congratulations on the weight loss, girl! I'm so sorry I haven't visited. I'm becoming a recluse.

You have not been forgotten!! No way!

Even seeing it come off little by little is the best incentive to keep going! Love it.
