Fat Girl Club Reject?

My husband is convinced that I am going to get kicked out of The Fat Girl's Club (Weight Watchers). Why? Just keep reading!

At Fat Girl's Club, they sometimes tell these corny stories or conveniently make up things to catch you attention. A few weeks ago our leader, a former fat girl, got up in front of the group and exclaimed, "This week is National Self Indulgence Week!". Then she went on to ask the ways in which we indulge ourselves. Well, you got a group of fat kids sitting right in front of you. How do you think we indulge ourselves. We eat! However, being professional fat kids we knew that this was not the correct answer! People began explaining ways they indulge themselves, but no one ever mentioned food. Some of the answers included massages, manicures, a cleaning service, going to the pool. Well you know me-I really have no filter, so I blurted out the first thing that came to my mind when I heard someone say pool! I replied, "a pool boy!". Every one thought this was hilarious, and the meeting got a little out of hand from there. By the way, it was all a trick. It really wasn't National Self Indulgence Week! Liars!

Upon arriving home from my Fat Girl's Club Meeting, I told my husband the story. He giggled, and then with his serious face replied, "You are going to get yourself kicked out of Weight Watchers." You know he might just be right! It hasn't happened yet, but I think I get a little closer every week. In fact, last week I vaguely remember making a comment about how I needed suspenders to hold up my panties.

P.S.-I don't want you to get the wrong idea. I really love Weight Watchers. It is a wonderful program that has helped me lose weight and stay inspired. I even love my leader. She is so sweet! I just tend to not take the meetings or life as serious as some. I also tend to shake the meetings up a little, but I promise I don't do it on purpose.

If you were not like that, then it would not be you. I can not remember a time that you were not funny or being silly. I love that about you and do not change it.

I haven't even known you that long, but every time I think of you it brings a smile to my face. I'd love to be a fly on the wall when you decide (or just happen) to shake things up! Thanks for your congrats to J. He was proud!
