AAAHHHH!!! Blinded by shiny! AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
It’s when you go into TOPS, step on the scale, and they tell you you’ve really lost 8 pounds. Because I defer to all things mathematically not me, I am confident that their scale is totally right, and I was, in fact, wrong in mocking my scale with its little French accent.
TOPS gives shiny things
The bracelet is given when the first 5 pounds are lost. For every 5 pounds lost after that, members are awarded further charms for the bracelet. If one wins a contest, is best loser, hasn’t gained in a certain amount of time, etc, there are charms for that as well. All in all, it’s not surprising when friends like Reese walk into TOPS with an extremely heavy necklace of charms. I told her after wearing that thing for an hour, she’ll have lost so much weight she’ll have to run around the shower just to get wet.
I like shiny things. It’s things like that which usually pull me off course. Most people think, “Gah! A weight loss group who is going to make me weigh in each week and talk about nutrition,” and it turns into, “oooh! Shiny thing! Shiny thing!
So, now I have a shiny thing with dangly shiny things.
I done forgot
I’m here to say, if ifs, ands, or buts were boiled eggs or nuts, we’d all have a low-carb Easter, now, wouldn’t we.
I am no good on my own
I apologize for not posting comments and my responses until this morning. I take my computer with me when I go places because I’m usually working on a piece of writing. I didn’t realize there’s a little switch for shutting the internet connectivity on and off. Now I know.
If I ever disappear, know technology probably did this to me and that I’ll be back!
That is, unless my Garmin Nuvi steers me wrong.
