Then the conversation proceeded as follows:
Her: I lost a lot of weight, I need to do some toning.
Me: Me too! That's what I'm here for.
Her: I lost about 90lbs...
Me: I lost 92lbs!! HIGH FIVE!! How did you do it?
Her: Gastric bypass...
Me: Oh I did it on Weight Watchers.
Her: Get out of here!!!! Really??! I started to gain some of my weight back and tried to join Weight Watchers but got discouraged at the slower rate of weight loss but I am thinking about trying it again and to have somebody to do it with and to KNOW that it is possible by seeing that YOU did it, would be incredible! Maybe I'll rejoin with you!
I feel like I am a disciple of Weight Watchers, spreading the good word lol So in a matter of 10 minutes we made friends, made plans to workout together, and I may have recruited a new Weight Watchers member :)
*** Not to down weight loss surgery if that's what worked for you, but I do have my opinions on it. (for the life of me, I can't find an older blog that I wrote about it) but the point I am trying to make is that I know several people who have had weight loss surgery, could not deal with 1) the limitations of the food they could eat or 2) the amount of skin that they had left over after such a rapid speed of weight loss and ended up gaining weight back and NOW are on Weight Watchers - doing it the slow and steady, no quick fix way.
There is no quick fix. Long term results come from long term changes.
Anyway, looking forward to making a new gym friend! It's amazing how life is set up just right so that everybody comes into your life at the right time, right place. She said that she saw me in the gym and was immediately drawn to me. :)
