Feeling a bit better

So, work is getting better. The week turned out to be successful. We got school off to a great start here. All the kiddos in their little uniforms. They are so cute! Our systems decided to have uniforms this year and believe it or not, I would say about 95% of our students were completely in uniforms. I work at an "at risk" school in a poverty stricken area of town and it was the opinion of most that we would have trouble at our school with parents getting uniforms for their children. Not so. I was quite surprised.

Now, things are better at work. Basically, the FIT I had to throw worked and things are running a bit smoother. I still don't understand the need for the FIT, but when dealing with the totally irrational, it calls for desparate measures.

My friend (at work) and I have decided to start back on weight watchers for awhile. See what happens!! I have been doing pretty well. Tomorrow will be a challenge. My son is home from Uganda (he's been doing anthropology research for two months) and we are celebrating tomorrow. My son wants my chicken and dumplings and cheesecake. Go figure. My sister is bringing baked beans and carrot cake....there will be BBQ and potato chips....and who knows what else.

But, I am going to manage! I am starting to feel better already.....! I took a nap this afternoon and am now awake at 1:30 a.m. But, hey, gives me time to lurk around here, huh?

See ya

Yay you!!! I'm so excited you're giving WW another try. I love the program as it allows you to have those celebration days. I love chicken and dumplings...your son has great taste! Cheesecake? count me in! Love carrot cake and chips too...hmmmmm now we know why Debby is fat! lol It's easy for me to tell you to have just a small amount of each dessert and only 5 chips and more chicken than dumpling...just try to do the best you can. If you eat everything that moves, don't beat yourself up...tomorrow is another day.

Welcome back to the program!

CJ, I hear you on the FIT. After almost 19 yrs on the job, I threw one myself in October of last yr, stayed home for 6 days plus 2 weekends and things changed for the better when I returned to work.

Congrats on returning to WW, I've never done the program myself. I think I've tried everything EXCEPT WW! LOL!!

WW has worked wonders for me.

It has really forced me to take a look at the choices I make and adjust what does not work.
