Fat Ass Friday

I remembered this morning that I forgot to check in for Brandy's Fat Ass Friday this weekend.  In general, I was a pretty terrible blogger this weekend, weekends are just a hard time for me to blog because well...I'm not working.  I do most of my blogging while at work.

But shhhh...

Don't tell anyone.

Starting weight: 192
Last week's weight: 167
Current weight: 165.5
Weight +GAIN / -LOSS this week: -1.5
Total weight lost: -26.5

Annnnnd...she's back!  That's the biggest loss I've had in a good month!  3 more pounds and I'm halfway there!

I hope that I can keep this going although I made some less than smart food choices this past weekend, so we'll see.

I didn't stay for the meeting this week as I went to a lecture on Leave No Trace practices with my guy friend.  This threw everyone in a tizzy because the main Weight Recorder was out too, but difficult is it to look at a digital scale and write down what it says?  Not terribly difficult.

I love TOPS, but my life doesn't go on hold for it.

I also had an interesting encounter with one of the ladies (who I don't particularly care for to begin with) that literally left me speechless.  See, out of the kindness of my heart I weighed in the few people that were there already before I left since one else could apparently handle the job.

I don't particularly care for weighing people in, I never know what to say to people and I just think it's awkward.  The main Weight Recorder is awesome, so I mostly just stand behind her and double check her math and stuff...but she's really great with interacting with everyone.  Remember...I'm socially awkward.

So this woman came to weigh in and she wasn't at the meeting the week before so attempting to make friendly small talk I said, "We missed you last week, where were you?"

Lady who was pissed she gained 4 pounds: "I was SICK!"
Me: "Oh, I'm sorry to hear that.  Was it just a cold or something?"
Me: "Was it just a cold or something??" (At this point I'm just thinking, go away I don't want whatever it is you were sick with, nor do I really care...I'm just trying to be friendly)

I was literally dumbfounded.  This here is a prime example of why I don't put myself out there and be nice to people.  That exchange was not easy for me, I don't like putting myself out there and asking people things because I always feel like I'm bothering them or getting too personal (although when I was in therapy my therapist encouraged me to do so), and apparently here I was getting too personal.  And then she was an asshole about it.  I quickly apologized and left the meeting.  

On another note - two younger girls came to the meeting to check it out (when I say younger I say around my age...I'm 25).  I hope to see them at the meeting this week because it would be nice to have some people there that I can relate to a little bit better.

Meeting is tomorrow, which means weigh in is tomorrow....wish me luck!

great job on the loss! And that lady who freaked out sounds like a nut- ignore her :)

She should have stayed home....again. She obviously has her period.

Good Luck!

I was very naughty. SOOOOO naughty.

What a bitch! Next time, you should threaten to cut her. I bet she won't come back. It always works for me.

CONGRATS on your weight loss! You are rockin' and rollin'! Keep it up!

I didn't make good choices this weekend and I won't be making good choices this weekend but I'll be GREAT Monday-Thursday!

Good luck at weigh in!

That's a good amount of weight loss! Congrats. I hate when people say it's easy to lose weight (at least, people tell ME this) but it's not, so good job.):

Thank for stopping over and nice to meet you.
Way to go on the weight loss! What was wrong with the woman, I think it's perfectly normal to ask that question.

I am a work blogger too... I won't tell if you don't!! I think its because my job sucks... I can't believe that chick who only lost 4lbs.. You have to get alil sarcastic and say stuff in return like-- 'guess you weren't THAT sick b/c you only lost 4lbs' then do the hair flip and walk off.

Terrific loss! I can totally relate to you, as I worked for WW for almost 2 years. And you just don't know what to say. Sounds like cranky lady needed to stay home another week. When we are sick--especially if we are not eating well--our bodies hold onto to the fat stores.

PS Good Luck!

I meant to respond to this yesterday, because it cracks me up that people blog at work! So I love that you admit it and how REAL you are! I also love how you said your socially awkward, because you don't come across that way in a blog.
Poo on that lady she probably was on her period like connie said. Or preggers! LOL Or bi-polar and needed to take her meds.
Your fine! :)
