Am I a Freak?

February 27th, 2007 at 06:12 pm

Okay, so I just put it together. The first day after My Challenge is the first day I am planning on being a Weight Watchers participant. MeaningÖ.I canít go out and have a ďItís Been a Year and Now I can Spend Like CrazyĒ amazing Sushi and Tempura Dinner. You think Iíd have allowed a week of freedom, except that I really like the idea of February being such a start month for me . I quit drinking eight years ago, quit smoking six years ago, both in February, and Iíd like February to be the month I stop overeating, too.

I did get my hair cut today, $55 including tip, very expensive, but I love the cut and really like the woman who cut it. I knew it wouldn't be cheap. She cuts a friendsí hair and does a really great job, and I had been meaning to find a good person to commit to. I like being able to trust someone. Like my auto mechanic; I could probably find cheaper, but he is solid and honest, pays his men a fair wage with benefits, and never takes advantage of my lack of car knowledge. Quality can be worth paying some more for. Scheduling the hair cut was the expense that made me realize I was committed to not cheating on the Challenge; I could have gotten a cut two days later and had it not affect my Challenge, but I didnít want a big change in spending post-Challenge.

I also made a Costco run yesterday, filling up with gas and getting some other goods. Again I could have waited three days but My Challenge has not been about not spending, itís been about not unconscious spending, and I bought good solid stuff. Broccoli and TP!

    I really appreciate the Challenge you did and your reports on it. It was one of the things that mad me take notice last year when I first started hanging our here regularly. Wish I had a mechanic like yours. I had one years ago, but he could not get the equipment needed to do so much of the electronic diagnosis nowadays. So he's out of the biz. :-(

    Weight Watchers actually has a flex plan where you have extra points...you can save them and 'splurge' once a week, if you choose. So sushi and tempura aren't totally off limits. Big Grin

    We just found a honest car person yesterday when we took the Tankilator in thinking we needed to have the transmission flushed, but no, the guy said it was good. Their charge would have been $80, so them not doing it was great for CashHappySon's Car Repair budget.

    Reading about your challenge has been so very inspirational! Enjoy your haircut and let us know about the new WW experiences.

    Sushi is also pretty WW friendly. It's not that bad of a hit. Tempura yes, b/c it's fried, but the non-fried are not bad. If you do some research, you can find a list of the points value for different kinds of sushi and rolls. I think there is one at www.dwlz.com. Good luck. It's a great system.
