Mental GPS


Thank you for the email below and thank you for allowing me to put it on the blog for everyone to read! YOU ARE IN AN INSPIRATION and I am so happy to get to be a part of your weight maintenance journey!

I hope everyone has a great day and I look forward to seeing you at the meetings this week!




Dear Terra~

I had a funny thought at the meeting today. What if we had a mental GPS that would say “recalculating route” when we mess up with being diligent on our weight loss goal? In the past (BWW…..before Weight Watchers) I would mess up and then throw up my hands saying “what’s the use? I’m never going to lose weight!” And of course I would proceed to stuff myself with whatever was available. Now, my mental GPS can acknowledge I made a wrong turn but point me in the right direction immediately.

Also for me I think I found what will encourage me. The more weight I have lost the better I got at yoga. My yoga instructor is quite intense……it’s more like physical therapy. I have been going to his class for 8 years, and noticed how much better I was when I lost 40#. Now I want to get my right leg over my right shoulder, which actually can be done. I am working on getting 2 pounds under goal…….and you know I’ve been struggling since the New Year.

A slip isn’t a fall, and failure is not an option.

See you next week!

    Hi Terra,

    I have a question to ask you and I wasn’t sure how to go about doing it besides doing it this way. I was at your meeting yesterday (Mon.) and I was wondering what the name of the bread is that you passed around and how many points it was worth? I thought you said it came from Dominick’s, but when I went there, I couldn’t find it (then again, I didn’t know exactly what I was looking for).

    Thank you for your help!
