Five Pounds

Hmm, it sounds like a movie.  Today I weighed in at Weight Watchers and against all odds over Easter, I still managed to lose enough to achieve my first five pound sticker.  It's amazing what grown people will do for those stickers!

The first two weigh ins I lost over two pounds each time, then the last two have only been fractions of a pound.  Probably because I felt I had this figured out and didn't need to track the points anymore.  I guess I need to keep writing down each thing that goes into my mouth as that seems to work.

Many people I haven't seen for a while don't recognize me right away because my hair has grown longer.  If I can shed these fifty or sixty pounds and keep growing my hair I can transform myself into a new person.

Perhaps a new name would be fun also - I am very taken with "In Plain Sight" that starts up again May 1st about the Witness Protection Program.

Left Brain and I went to see Water for Elephants this afternoon.  It was done very nicely and followed the book as well as it could.  We then performed our own sequel and went home for the showing of "Tuna for Kitties" starring our very own She Devil.

Life is all we need is some sunshine!

I'm off tomorrow for our bus trip to Mall of America and then to the Orpheum theatre for Jersey Boys.  A bus full of women all day long with snacks and doesn't get any better than this.

Long Live the Queen of Slimmer Every Week


  1. Doing great, Queen Jester! Reaching that 5-pound mark sounds like it was a very important step in that large weight loss you are aiming for. I haven't seen you for a while, so I guess I'm one of those people on whose face you may see a sudden burst of recognition after a long pause, next time I see you. And--you may do the same to me!

  2. Wow, congratulations!!!!! I guess I will have to break down and buy a scale one of these days. Every little pound that comes off is such a motivator.

    You have a great time at the Mall of America. If it doesn't rain, I am going to plant some new things in the garden.

    You have a fantastic day, hugs, Edna B.
