So I've gone and done it. I've joined one of those fat clubs. You know the ones, where you pretend you are on "The Biggest Loser" and you are gonna get rich if you lose the most.
OK I think the winner might take home $60 or $70, but what the heck, if it motivates us, then that is great.
It was the great idea of a friend of mine, and few of us are getting together every week to weigh in, pay a little money, take turns giving a little presentation/pep talk.
I missed the first meeting because I had a previous engagement, but I got the word on how it all went down. My friend "Not-so-fat" did the presentation. She gave us all notebooks to record our progress, and every week we have to write down a goal for the week to give us something to work on and keep us motivated.
How is it going you say?
Well, the next morning, after Fatty Fatty Fat Club, I was contemplating the goal I would write down if I had my notebook. I chose two goals and was debating which to start with. Hmmmmmm what shall it be? Should I stop picking up an ice cold diet coke every morning at Cumberland Farms on my way to work? OR, should I just say NO FAST FOOD. That would be a good one.
I was so deep in thought that on auto pilot, I pulled into C-Farms and picked up my morning addiction (think ice cold). I continued to consider that I could still make that my goal. I mean, after all, I haven't written it down yet.
On the way to work I discovered I was STARVING (because in actuality it was more like 1 in the afternoon). Remember I was still debating between NO Diet Coke at C-Farms, or No Fast Food. I could just go to work and pop open a can of soup to get me through the day, right?
Next thing I know, I am pulling away from Dunkin Donuts, munching on the most disgusting grilled cheese flatbread piece of grossness. I finished it, every last disgusting bite.
So, what do you think my goal should be? I am taking all suggestions. My first thought is that I should write down
"Week One Goal: No debating over goals. Pick one and stick with it."
I think I better write that down...
