#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller

A brief report

Down 1.2 pounds at Weight Watchers today–excellent meeting!  If you’re in WW, or thinking of joining, be sure to find a group you enjoy, because that makes all the difference.  On one of my previous attempts, I didn’t connect with the leader very well, and that doesn’t help.  On the other hand, attitude is everything, and I apparently had a less than ideal one going at the time.  :)  I would, of course, like to be farther along than I am, but there’s no hurry, since I’m in for the duration. 

I’m listening to a great memoir called “It Was Me All Along”, written by Andie Mitchell.  Andie’s weight loss journey is fascinating, and her story really touched my heart.  She’s been through some rough stuff, but she’s still in there plugging, and I have enormous respect for that.  I’m not finished with the book yet, but she has mentioned losing 135 pounds.  WOW.  That’s a whole person, for heaven’s sake.  Impressive!  Plus, Andie is a skilled baker, and I was inspired to read that she’s learned to savor her food without overdoing it.

Speaking of food, I think I’m hungry.  :)

See you tomorrow.

    I love to bake and people ask me how I stay thin. I like to bake for others, I give them neighbors , maybe l to my parents, my brother said I could just bake cookies for him.

    That is fantastic Linda, send some of your weight loss my way. I went to the doctor today because I have been sick a couple of weeks and I didn’t like what the scale told me. I haven’t been able to exercise much lately and the scale told me so. Must get back into it as soon as I can get this cough under control.

    Congratulations, Linda!!!!!

    I pray everyone is keeping warm tonight. It is down in the teens where I’m at. I know that is “warm” for some people, but here in Western SC and NE GA, that is cold, cold, cold.

    Blessings to all.

    Congratulations on the weight loss. I agree about needing the right attitude to succeed. I’m hoping to get that attitude so I’m successful at getting healthier. The book sounds interesting and motivational. Thanks for the info.

    Congrats on the weight loss. The book sounds fascinating and positive. My neice had attempted WW but really wasn’t into it. She opted out or didn’t follow through but a year later she was ready. So far she lost 110 lbs. She’s trying for the last 225 lbs.

    Congratulations. WW is a journey not a race. I too have a Wednesday meeting. I agree with you about connecting. Our Leader is great and we have lots of fun and encouragement. I am a life timer after an 85 # loss. I was struggling over the “season” and was over my goal & allowance. Today I weighed in @ .1 under goal weight. I’m back on track and tracking faithfully again. The book sounds like a good read.
