Bunny’s Early Warning System

November 23, 2016

At her Week 1 Weight Watchers weigh-in, Bunny lost 7 lbs!

At her Week 2 weigh-in, she lost 0.4. 4/10. Four-tenths of one pound. She’s entirely underwhelmed by this. And now she’s worried. Here’s a sneak peak at what’s going on in Bunny’s head:

What if I’m too old to lose weight?? No, that can’t be. But 4/10 of a pound? At that rate it’ll take me 400 years to lose all this weight! I lost a lot the first week, but everybody knows that’s just water. What if…….????

With that state of mind in place, she attended the pre-Thanksgiving Weight Watchers meeting where they reviewed all the traditional holiday goodies and focused the members on how much of this and that equals how many SmartPoints. Armed with this knowledge, Bunny resolved to stay on the straight and narrow the week prior to Turkey Day, to minimize the net damage.

Then disaster struck. Two days after the meeting, Bunny went to a football party at Buffalo Wild Wings. She tried hard to choose something from the menu that sounded relatively safe. She went with something called Buffalitos — basically soft tacos. A lot of lettuce, a teensy amount of chicken, some hot sauce, and the tortilla, times two. Not too bad, right?

When she got home, she discovered that this friendly looking meal cost her a cool 29 Smart Points. (What the heck do you put in your Buffalitos, Buffalo Wild Wings???)

Even worse, while waiting for the Buffalitos, she noshed on two of Buff’s mozzarella sticks. Just cheese, right? Nope. 10 Smart Points!

And that didn’t count that nice glass of wine (5 Smart Points).

So now she’s wondering about her ability to lose weight at more than 0.10039430423343 lb. per week, AND she feels as though her Thanksgiving week point-counting has been severely compromised.  Bunny is a hot mess.

But she has not entirely lost hope. We suggested that she skip this week’s weigh-in (it’s just better that she not know what she weighs the day after Thanksgiving). She will hop back on the program in earnest and have six days to (please God) lose something…anything!

Bunny needs some encouragement.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
