What you won't read on CNN's ticker...

If you aren't watching the new, let me sum it up for you:

The Dow is dropping.
Interest rates are rising.
Financial security is plummeting.
Everyone is in jeopardy of financial crisis.
The political zoo is heating up.
Yada, yada, yada..

Here is some news that's not making CNN: I have some numbers for you - 2.4 & 6.8 - That is, 2.4 pounds I lost last week and 6.8 pounds I've lost in the past 2 weeks!! WHOO-HOO!

I joined Weight Watchers 2 weeks ago and am attending the meetings. I've done WW off and on for the past year, on my own, with very little success. So I decided to attend the meetings and see if that helped. And it has!

So, today I got my 5 pound sticker (indicating to all that I have lost 5 pounds) and I got a "bravo" sticker because my WW leader thinks it's amazing that I get to the meetings (kids in tow!) and that I have 4 kids, 6 and under, and that I get to the gym at least 5 days a week. People are funny. Little do they know that, as far as kids go, I am status quo for my circle of (well, Minot) friends!! And I go to the gym so much because it is a great place to take the kids when they are making me crazy they need to run off some energy. Not exactly amazing, but I'll keep my bravo sticker!

In other news, did y'all notice that I put a new little gadget on the side of my blog? I put a little weight loss ticker there. I figure that it will hold me accountable to know that the 5 people that read my blog may check to see how my progress is coming along.

If you feel so inclined to, check out that ticker and feel free to hold me accountable every now and then! I need it.

Rock on, Girl! Another 2.4 lbs is AWESOME! In another week or so and you'll get your "I've lost 10pounds" sticker. Woohoo!

What day is "weigh in" day? Will you continue to share your WW/weight loss journey via blog post...or will we just have to check out the "ticker"? :-)
