I am the biggest CRY baby!

Here's for my readers who are wondering how it went tonight. Well I CRIED!! Not once but twice. Let me tell you why and then you might understand better.

A couple of weeks ago I had my leader weigh my boot separately, so I would not have to take it off every week. I thought that was a great idea. So I needed a chair to sit on while I removed my other shoe (leaving my boot on). After I got on the scales she said "OK Lesia are you going to be OK with a gain?"(she knows how emotional I get)and I sad "Why did I gain?" then I heard a "Yes". I asked how much and she told me 1.6 pounds. I quietly put my shoe back on and hopped to me seat. I TRIED really hard NOT to cry but I started thinking...
~I tried really hard NOT to eat anything unhealthy.
~I stayed way below my points.
~I even rode my exercise bike 4 miles with the boot on today.
~I have at least 6-8 more weeks of this boot thing.
~If this is how its going to be then why even try?
~What will my family think.
~Why do I put myself through ALL this.
And then the support hugs came from my WW friends. Thank you Quay. And the tears welled up in my eyes and it just happened. (I am not a cry baby either but this weight thing really gets to me).

After a few minutes I thought:
"WAIT A DAMN MINUTE! This can't be right can it?"
So I asked a girl I was sitting next to if she would go and ask the leader for me, "if she remembered to minus the weight of the boot?" I watched from my seat as the leader told her "OH CRAP I FORGOT SORRY".
Are you kidding me! I was crying for nothing!
Now I was crying for a totally different reason. This time it was from being over joyed that I wasn't a failure and I can do this.

So after it was all said and done I had a loss of 1.2! Now I only have 1 MORE POUND before I hit the magic 50 pound marker.
