It happened!

Well, you guys… it finally happened.

I missed my Weight Watchers meeting for the first time ever.

Yep, I’ve been doing Weight Watchers since May 2014 and I went 18 months without missing a single meeting. I’ve attending a meeting in another state, and meetings at different times, but I’ve always managed to make it to my weekly meeting.

However, it was bound to happen eventually, and I had a perfectly legitimate reason for missing it - Marc and I ran the YMCA Corporate Cup Second Line to Literacy 5K on Saturday (race report to come)! The Saturday meetings are at 8 and 9:30, and the race started at 8:30… it just wasn’t going to happen. None of the other meeting times during the week really work with my schedule, so I decided it was okay to miss this one.

So, all that just to say—no weigh in this week!

In other news, I think Marc is finally ready to take action to lose weight and get healthy. He’s put on some weight and he’s not happy about it—he’s got about 40 pounds to lose. I’ve (mostly) left him alone about it, because I know you just have to get to that place on your own. Over the weekend, he commented that none of his pants are comfortable and I asked him, “So what are you going to do about it?” I already told him I wasn’t buying him any bigger pants!

After talking a bit, he decided to download My Fitness Pal and start tracking his calories. He hates tracking, but after giving me several lame-o excuses why it’s so terrible (I love you honey!), I explained to him that he at least needs to try it for a month—otherwise, how’s he going to know what he needs to change? (Of course, I’m hoping that he’ll have such good results after a month that he’ll want to keep doing it!)

I’m so excited to finally have him on this journey with me. He’s always been encouraging, but I know it will be even better having him actually in this with me. We are doing this!

Feel free to add him on MFP and give him some encouragement – his username there is marcbyrne.

Waiting for the race to start on Saturday; love the bedhead :D
