with any luck…

you’ll be seeing a lot less of me.

took the plunge and joined weight watchers. contrary to everything i expected, the points system actually kind of appeals to me…and they gave me a slidey scale thingy to find the point value of random foods.

it’s fun. like a little mini-puzzle.

i’m not really looking directly at any weight loss “goals.” there’s mention of a 10% goal, and a “first five” and a goal weight, but even the 10% — the “that’s not so bad, huh?” number — is too big to calmly contemplate. at the moment, i’m just writing down my points and trying to internalize what 27 points per day feels like.

you know what my goal is? my goal is that by November 1, the $40 oversize charge they slapped on my bridesmaid dress will have become wasted money.

that’s only 1.5 dress sizes.

i can do it.

    GOOOOO GINNY!!
    *cheer*
    you can do this, and you’re gonna look AWESOMER than you already do. if you want some supplementary reading , i’ve been reading this: http://www.amazon.com/6-Day-Body-Makeover-Whole-Days/dp/0446695572/ref=pd_bbs_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1204745814&sr=1-2
    (yeah, long url, but still…)
    it’s actually proving to be a pretty good book…he talks about ways you can “reprogram” your metabolism and understanding your body type (and how that body type affects what diets do and don’t work for you). and, best of all, it’s available at your friendly local library. πŸ˜‰
