I've gotten re-inspired to actually DO the Weight Watchers program since winning my ticket to England.  I swear that Cara and I were the only fat people in London when we were there, and I'm determined not to let that happen again.  Plus I want to be in good shape so I can spend hours a day walking.

Tonight, I finally hit my 20 pound weight loss milestone!  Yay!  I'm starting to feel like my clothes are a bit looser, and I look a mite slimmer.  Long way to go still, but I'm really happy that I've gotten this far.

BTW, that picture?  My favorite plot development on "Mad Men" this year is Fat Betty Draper Francis.  She's started going to WW too, which is a lot of fun.  My first time with WW was 25 years ago, and it had already changed quite a bit from the program of the 60s.  Betty glumly eating a piece of Melba Toast and a blob of something for breakfast was priceless.  Then rushing into the kitchen and squirting Readi-Whip straight from the can into her mouth. 

We've all been there, Bets.

You can do it. You can do it. You can do it! Just drink Pimm's until you go to London:)

20 lbs?! That's awesome. I have a few hilarious (to me) quotes to help you through the day

"nothing tastes as good as skinny feels"
"a moment on the lips is a lifetime on the hips"

And totally unrelated but equally funny "brown chicken brown cow" (just say it out loud a few times)
