Weight Watchers has Changed My Life or At Least My Stories!

I am not going to be able to attend my regular Fat Girl's Club (a.k.a-Weight Watchers) meeting tonight (I have a work event to attend.), so I thought I would tell you a story about how going to the meetings has changed my life! Don't worry-it isn't a serious story! It's true but not serious!

A little background knowledge is required for this story. The Weight Watchers program assigns points to every food. The points are based on calories, fat, and fiber. Based on your weight and activity level you are assigned a certain number of points to eat each day. The average person gets around 25 points. It really is a great program and one of the most successful weight loss programs.

On to my story-Occasionally things go missing around our office. Staplers, tape dispensers, and other office supplies magically grow legs and end up places where they are not supposed to be. Before Weight Watchers, co-workers would ask me if I had seen the missing item and I would simply reply, "I ate it". (Side note:I realize this reply is a bit juvenile, but being serious and grown up has never been my cup of tea. I tend to tread on the lighter side of life.) Now after Weight Watchers, my reply has changed to, "I ate it", followed by the number of points it would be. For example, Heather is missing her stapler. Heather asks me if I have seen it. My answer, "I ate it. It was 37 points." It's a little known fact that staplers are very high in fat! :)
