Yes, I gained. But so did almost everyone else in the chapter - our "best loser" for the week dropped a whopping quarter-pound. (I really wasn't surprised by this; the past week was one of the sort Margaret Cho described in one of her shows as being so very good out in public...and then coming home and eating the couch.)

The unofficial theme for the evening was "Better Late Than Never." [livejournal.com profile] murphymom and I finally got to give the program we've been sitting on for three weeks; we ad-libbed for a few minutes on the subject of Non-Food Rewards, then handed out a word-search puzzle and gave everyone five minutes to find as many words as possible. Our winner, who got 15 out of 24 (hell, I'd seen the thing already, and even I only managed 17), was given a preview-sized bottle of Bath and Body Works' Twisted Peppermint Three-In-One, and he loved it. Everybody loved it - they were all sitting in the meeting room 15 minutes after we officially adjourned, still trying to find the rest of the words in the puzzle. So we scored big with this, as we had both hoped and expected - this was the first time the weekly program had been fun since we came back two months ago.

We also took some photos tonight, Mom mostly for her eHarmony profile, and me because neither of us had a photo taken at our first meeting (which is supposed to be part and parcel of the application process - how are they going to see how much different you look if they don't have a point of reference?).

Back here, for the curious )

My frustrations with the chapter as a whole and the chapter leader in particular continue to grow. )

No doubt you'll all be grateful to learn that I ran out of steam before I ran out of rant; I'm going to fall into bed now and try not to think about this anymore.

[livejournal.com profile] karenww in [livejournal.com profile] projectoneyear linked to a bathroom scale that 1. will actually hold my weight (and then some!) and 2. doesn't cost the earth:

MY WEIGH XL-550 550 LB / 250 KG TALKING SCALE

Catch up on a couple more bills, and we could pick this up easily. (No pun intended.)

I'm a tea drinker; have been all my life. In the colder months I've been known to go through three or four pots in a day.

I'm drinking tonight's tea with just three teaspoons of sugar in it, instead of my usual four.

It's a start.

(Tomorrow, if I'm feeling particularly ambitious, I may actually count calories all day....)

I just joined [livejournal.com profile] projectoneyear, an LJ community started by Dave Wright of Todd and Penguin fame. In addition to drawing comics, Dave writes a newspaper column, and was just challenged by his boss: Lose 100 pounds over the course of the next year, and get a 1-week trip to the Bahamas.

I don't have a fancy trip waiting for me at the end of the year.

I just have the rest of my life.

See more progress on: lose weight
