You Can't Call Us Losers

Nosirree.

We have diligently been watching our weight for over two months now.
That first week was wonderful. Glorious.
We got stars.
Since then, not so many stars have come our way.
We are still watching our weight; it mostly goes up.
Annie has an excuse because she is taking steroids for a bad case of poison ivy.
She also has a bum knee.
Me, I have no steroids to blame.
My knees are just fine.
At last night's weigh-in, I found out that I found 2 more pounds.
And that was without shoes, earrings, wedding rings, or underwear.
On an interesting note, however, we have become the class clowns.
Roseanne Barr better watch out.

Mama,
How hard that must be to find things in front of an audience!. I'm glad that you're able to laugh though. So will I be seeing you soon at a comedy club near me? Can I get front row seats? I want to laugh at my behind too!

I know it sucks when you gain even stripped down...I gained 2.4 last Wednesday...tomorrow is minE and I am afraid it will be 2 more...every BLT will get you remember...(BITE, LICK, TASTE)!!!! I swear I have bulimia...I just forget to throw up!!!! My spirit will be a knock out though...you wait and see when you meet me in Heaven...

Dang that's frustrating, no? Maybe you should try to gain weight. Do the whole switcher-roo trick.
No surprise about the class clown thing.

I believe you on the Roseanne Barr...you crack me up all the time. I know what you mean about the weightloss..it is hard, but if you really want to do it, then you will. I believe in you and love you!

I feel for you! I diligently gained five pounds over the summer (mostly from ice cream). I had a physical the other day which is precursor to going to WW tomorrow. Gained a pound since last WW meeting. Good news, even with the weight gain, I am down 12 pounds from 2 years ago.... :) Nurse Nancy

exCUSE me???? I lost weight this week!! Granted it was only .2 lbs...and that probably because I didn't allow myself to drink a drop of anything all day before our 5:45pm meeting...but I LOST!!!
(Hold down your applause, really not necessary, but thank you;-)

I have been doing WW for the last couple years and I hate it. The reason I hate it is because in order to lose weight, you apparently have to follow the program. That just sucks if you ask me.

I think you probably forgot to clip your toenails and pluck your eyebrows before the weigh-in though. I find that makes a huge difference.

Screw ummm... those little flat thingies in the bathroom that show your weight, that you always stub your toe on in the dark... uhhh... scales, yeah, scales. I have never owned one - against my religion.

In the 70's ladies threw away their bras to fight for equal rights. In the "aught years" (what a shitty decade name) lets start a new revolution and throw away our scales.

C'mon -- you can do it!

Bear Naked said...

Excuse me!
You removed your underwear!
That's very interesting and must have been hilarious at the WW meeting.
Any photos?

Bear((( )))

I lost 60 lbs on Medifast a year ago. It's the only thing that worked for me. After a year, 10 lbs inched back on (mostly due to many med changes) but now I've developed a sensitivity to all artificial sweeteners, so I can't do Medifast again. I've been thinking of doing WW just to get those extra 10 lbs back off, but maybe I'll just ramp up the exercise instead!

Peace - D

Laura ~Peach~ said...

i would not be drug to a WW meeting but I do believe if the opportunity arose to go with you two I could be coaxed into it!

Camellia said...

I like watching your weight better than watching mine. Thanks for the effort.

Ellen said...

Now if you go to WW commando, do you have to wear fatigues?

Some how I can see you and "Tis" being the center of attention at WW. And I haven't even met you.

But I will be in CT next month for a regatta - maybe then we can meet.

Caution Flag said...

Your poor WW teacher/leader/coach! Do you suppose she can get fired because of you two?

Trisha said...

Laughter is supposed to be good exercise so . . . keep it up! And that added weight - all muscle! Remember, muscle weighs more than fat! ;-)

Keetha said...

Hey, don't knock being the class clown. We all need to laugh. So you go!

Big Hair Envy said...

Feelin' your pain here! I don't care how often I go to the gym and work out, I can't seem to lose a single pound. Do you think wine has many calories? THAT could be my problem.

I never would have thought to remove my underwear before weighing in....you think of EVERYTHING!

Country Girl said...

I want to go to your meetings with you guys as the class clowns. I was always the class clown at my meeting, but that was years ago. When I was a good girl. I'm bad now.

Snooty Primadona said...

I would so be a class clown right along with you, lol. But, hey - at least you're both trying, right?

Then, you could do what I do. Take a diuretic before you go weigh in. It's usually good for 4-5 pounds. he he he

Mrs. G. said...

Next time lop off an arm before the meeting. It makes a difference.

imbeingheldhostage said...

I wanted to comment, but then I read dyln's and I'm gone LMAO (oooh, laughing causes weight loss, right?)

Deb said...

Truly and honestly, I am laughing my butt off after reading some of the ladies responses.
DLYN, you are crazy girl! But I'm with you all the way...damn program. ya gotta follow it to lose weight...dammit!

Daryl said...

Class clowns? I am SO surprised.

noble pig said...

I think I would quit that group. I think it's making you gain! Go naked next time.

Lisa J said...

Well at least you get to get out and go socialize huh??? That is an important part of life. And to make others happy, what more could you ask for? Who cares about weight watchers. Quit giving them your money and be happy with yourself. Now must go preach to myself.

Adventure girl wanna be said...

Well.........the good news is you will cheer everyone up at the meetings when they have had a bad weighin;)

I hate thinking about weight and the issues that come along with the weight;(

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

I think the first problem is you are identifying yourself by your true name on the name tags. I'd pull the old switcharoo and use some fictitious name. Perhaps the fictious person can lose weight.

I also continue to urge you to go on the liquid diet.

Flea said...

See, it's because you're working out so much and building up muscle mass. Everyone knows that muscle weighs more than fat. You lean, mean fightin' machine, you.

Alias Liz Jones said...

My butt just seems to keep getting wider. The rest of me doesn't know in which direction to go. I feel your pain.

Egghead said...

The thing is that I don't want any extra watchers watching me and my weight. I have enough of those I live and work around. I wonder how much a pair of huge granny panties weigh. Oh and I have plucked every last eyebrow in order to thin up on that scale.

Rebeckah said...

I saw your comment on Chesepeake Bay Woman's blog and I came over to see who could be so delightfully funny : )! I loved this post. I hate those meetings (well, actually not the meeting part, just the weighing in part). I am glad you make it happy and fun.

Joanie said...

I think they should allow us to gain when we are in menopause mode. I mean, we can't help it. Would that be a 9th dwarf...fatso? If so, that'd be me...
