My Quest

Our family just finished reading The Tale of Desperaux. In this book, Desperaux, a mouse, goes on a quest to save the Princess Pea. He is quite serious about it and his quest is all for love...

I, too, am on a quest. Not a quest for any grand or noble cause; not a quest for love of anyone or honor; not a quest for fame or fortune. I am on a quest in my clothes once again!

I am, like Desperaux, quite serious about it and am doing it for love (in a way), love of not spending my money on something I already have, but are just the wrong size!

Right before Christmas, I started Weight Watchers. The first week is so depressing because all you do is pay, weigh in (and get to see just how large the number actually is!), and go sit and listen at the meeting. But the following weeks, have been a bit better. I have lost a little weight each week. When I use the word "little", I really mean LITTLE, but there is, at least, a negative sign by the number and not a positive sign by it....:) Going the right way at least.

So, this week, I will continue my quest. I will put it in perspective in the list of priorities. (It is NOT my top priority!) But I will endeavor to persevere.

I'm so proud of you!!! Weight Watchers is wonderful. Just think, it helps you lose it and keep it off! And it helps me to think...I'm never going to be a size 2...I would just like to feel happy in my clothes. You'll get there I'm positive of it! And to tell you the truth, I would LOVE to be your size!!! Keep up the good work!
