The Halfway Mark...Almost

I'm seeing a new WW leader first thing Saturday mornings and he's fucking evil. Damn him.

This morning, he was talking about trigger foods....the food item you eat that makes you go ape shit and causes you to eat non-stop.

So he's asking people what their trigger foods are and a guy says peanut butter. He goes through an entire jar in 3 days. Now that's the way to pull an Elvis. Dying on the crapper 'cuz you're all plugged up.

A woman speaks up and says she loves to dig into peanut butter with a spoon and dip it into a bag of chocolate chips.

Thanks bitch....I hadn't eaten breakfast by the way....I didn't want to mess up my weigh-in, but with all of this trigger talk, I'm about to go ape shit and tear through the member's pocketbooks to see who's hiding the candy bars or whatever secret goodies they've got stashed.

So, I'm really wanting this session to be over, or for the leader to change the subject, but no. He elaborates on the peanut butter and chocolate chip thing.

He says real slowly and seductively, "The mouths of the peanut butter jars got bigger, so you don't just dip the spoon in, you take a WOODEN spoon and dip it in real slow and then you pull it out real slow so that you have it coated with peanut butter."

It's sounding a little erotic, dontcha think?

He continues, "You don't just stop there. You take that yellow bag you have and open it wide and then you dip the peanut butter laden spoon into it and you get all of those chocolate chips coating the whole thing, and then you start licking it off and you get the chips up your nose and it's all over your face.

And then you're scraping the inside of the peanut butter jar and you know that lip under the mouth of the jar where you can't get the spoon? You have to take your pinky and swirl it around to get the rest. But you know what I do?

I run the water until it's warm and I fill the jar about a quarter of the way, put the lid back on and I shake it until all the peanut butter is cleaned off the sides. And then I drink the water."

I lost my appetite you sadistic bastard. You've redeemed yourself!

As of today, I've lost 11.8 pounds in 11 weeks doing WW. I have 16 pounds to go to reach my goal. According to the counter on the right I don't have a whole lot of time to lose it. But it doesn't mean it isn't possible to reach my goal.


  • Ewww - I was getting hungry just reading it until the end.

    Great job on the weight loss! Congratulations.

  • Although I am peanutbutter junkie,
    I am proud to say that I have NEVER drunk the water!

    Congrats on the weight loss,

  • Ewwww!

    People do some weird things with peanut butter.

    Not me though. PB and pickle sandwiches is perfectly normal, right? :D

  • Way to go, Shannon!

    I prefer to rinse my peanut butter remnants down with beer, btw.

  • Congrats on the weight loss!!! You're doing awesome.

    PB water. Now that's just putrid. I was drooling over the chips and PB, but yeah, the PB water was just plain old disgusting.

    Kind of like "Weiner Water Soup".

    (My Aunt came up with this one - what to do with the water you boil your hot dogs in ... for poor University Students ... make weiner water soup! Now maybe they could have PB water to wash it down after ... BLECH!)

  • OMG. I'm going to keep the weiner water soup idea from my WW leader. I'm afraid of what he'll suggest to do with the hot dogs and the water. I don't need him having an orgasm in the middle of the meeting.

  • Oh gag me! Very effective. I'd love to find a great WW leader. No such luck here.

    I would never eat before going to a WW meeting either, and then I wanted to attack the people who brought Starbucks coffee in to listen to the leader. The smell would waft over... enticing, making my stomach grumble AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!

    Congrats on the weight loss!!!

  • Hmmm....lifing fell by the wayside back when I got sick, and then I actually FORGOT to work out, LOL.

    So, now I'm onto the program again. I did cardio a little while ago. This afternoon, I'll lift.
