Ice cream in a pharmacy bag

Losing weight is hard!  Not just hard, more along the lines of: I'd rather give birth with no epidural while getting a root canal and attending parent-teacher conference than keep trying to lose weight.  Seriously not a happy endeavor.

That being said, about a year ago I miraculously managed to lose 40 pounds.  Hooray for me!  Then over this last winter/spring/summer I managed to gain back 20.  Hooray for me?  Yeah, not so much.  I'll admit it, I'm desperate.  So I signed up for a program being offered by my insurance company called "Waist Aweigh" (obviously titled by some obnoxious thin person who enjoys mocking us poor fat souls) anyway, the program will reimburse me for weight loss programs (up to $50 a month) as long as I lose one Body Mass Index (BMI) point every 60 days.  Easy?  Not so much, but at least somebody (besides me) now has a vested interest in me losing weight.

I was already going to a gym so I went and joined Weight Watchers (something I really, really never thought I'd do!)  All snarkiness aside, I think it's a good thing and it's helping because I've actually managed to lose almost 4 pounds since I went to the doctor a few weeks ago.  I'll keep posting about it, but that's not really the point of this particular post.

Here's the point:  Today I attended my second Weight Watcher's meeting.  I was so excited to be losing weight again that I ran right out after the meeting and bought myself a container of Ben and Jerry's Chubby Hubby!  (And you can just shut up about it not being a good idea to reward weight loss with ice cream!  I don't care!)  Since I had to get flouride I just paid for the ice cream at the pharmacy.  And guess what?  They put the ice cream in a pharmacy bag!  Isn't that hilarious?  I mean, for me ice cream is practically medicinal anyway so I've decided that from now on all ice cream should come in a pharmacy bag.  It would completely eliminate ice cream guilt and turn me into the best mom ever ("I'm sorry kids, but you have to take your ice cream medicine before you can have your vegetables").  So there you have it.  Ice cream in a pharmacy bag, it's the wave of the future!

Nurse, I need 50cc's of hot fudge! Now you're going to feel a slight chocolatey sensation.

That's awesome! I lost most of my weight from doing Weight Watcher's! I like that program :)

And don't feel bad about rewarding your weight loss with ice cream, I reward mine with cheesecake and that's way worse than ice cream!

Good job on losing 4 pounds!

I LOVE that idea about ice cream being medicinal! That is so great for you-I so understand the weight loss thing myself. I actually started losing this year then gained 5 back and now after exercising like crazy and yes eating better nothing is coming off. Well some inches are but the weight is stuck with muscles under the flab! :)I'll blame mine on turning 40 this year-LOl you are still good for a couple more years or so so it will be off before you know it!
