Weight Watchers Lessons

bathroom scaleAt Weight Watchers yesterday, I gained more than the one extra pound I expected. Kathy, the ever-cheerful leader, shared a story I needed to hear.

Seems that one of her star “losers” had gone to an annual national conference for work and was looking forward to the compliments she’d receive for losing 50 pounds (!) since the last one.

She came home disappointed and hurt. Nobody noticed. Nobody said a thing! A few days later, though, she received a call from one of the women at the conference.

“Are you all right?” she wanted to know. “We were all so worried that you’d been sick.”

Lessons learned: Sometimes we let the dog eat our planners when we’re too quick to interpret others’ responses. AND who cares about that extra pound? Think of all the worry I’m saving my friends.
