WW Expert?

Seems as though I am now being considered a WW expert. My uncle's step-daughter, who I met during my cross country drive from Virginia to Nevada, is going to contact me about WW. We talked a little about it when I was in Mississippi. She's done it before. Maybe she wants to give it another try. I say good for her. But it's weird. I haven't been journaling in over a month. And I haven't had an official weigh-in at WW for May. I think I have to go or they'll charge me to go in June, and I don't want that to happen. I couldn't understand why people didn't like to journal. I found it so reassuring. Now, it just seems tedious. Is that strange? And I don't seem to be gaining and I've been here for a month now. (Wow, time flies!) I have been thinking about cancelling my subscription to eTools, but I really want to have that record of my weight loss. It would be sad not to have that to look back on. It's weird. I'm starting to feel like a different person. Like, it took me months to realise I am no longer someone who is trying to lose weight. That seems bizarre to me. I miss it. Does that sound strange? I do. I miss the ritual of going to WW every week. I miss the support of counting all my points. I miss having that goal. It is strange how life changes. I guess my life has been changing a lot for the past 6 months or so. So, I guess what I am trying to say is that I no longer feel like much of a WW expert. I haven't been to a meeting since January. I stopped staying for the meetings when I'd get weighed-in in Vegas because I just never clicked with the meeting leaders. I meant to go to a meeting the first Saturday I was in NYC, and I've had it as a standing meeting in my calendar all month, and I still haven't gone. I'm not sure why. I can't go tomorrow because I have plans. (My mom has a layover at JFK and I'm going to hang out with her.) I don't know if I'm going to be able to get to a meeting before June, oh wait, next Saturday is May 31st - awesome! We'll see if I stay for the meeting.

Sorry I'm so ramble-y. It's been a long week. I can't believe it's almost 10pm. Maybe I'll get to bed early tonight. I hope you are all well.

glad to hear you are well. It is nice that you are able to see your mom and hang out for a while (even if it is at the airport). Have a great weekend.

I'm glad that you are still out and about.

I also think your struggles are common among "lifers"...I think that getting back into the routine of meetings will do wonders. Good luck to you.

Enjoy the time with your mom!

Every word you said, I think it's common for lifers like us.
