I think I am back on track. The last couple of weeks have gone much better. I am eating better, I am exercising and I think my head is on straight again. Well, as straight as it can be.
Not sure what happened to me, but I must have been in some kind of funk. Whatever it was, I think it is gone. For now.
I have been back running again. More than I have in the past few weeks and it feels soooooo good. I have also been moving and grooving to Jillian Michaels DVDs. And, for the most part, I have been loving it.
I do have one thing I have to share. I love being a leader for Weight Watchers. My members are so awesome. All of them. I wish, however, that I could spend one-on-one time with some of them. I wish I could give them more attention some time and more information and tips and whatever else it is they need. I know so many people struggle with weight issues and it is so hard. I try to encourage them the best I can.
Sometimes, however, they actually encourage me and I don’t even think they know it. Sometimes, a member can say something to me and to them, it is probably nothing, but to me, it means so much. I appreciate their little words of encouragement; their little nods of understanding; their laughter when I TRY to be funny; their clapping after a meeting (although most of the time this doesn’t happen, but I have to admit it’s kind of cool when it does); their thank you’s; their smiles; their words of wisdom; their words of encouragement to other members; and their tips and tricks they often share.
I lead 13 meetings per week and each one is unique. I travel to different towns and encounter so many truly wonderful people. I am grateful for the job I have and the opportunity to try and help people. It is truly an inspiring job. Yes, as I said before, I do actually miss attending meetings, but I finally realized that I can still be a part of them. I know, it sounds weird, right? But I still get to listen to the members share and that is one of the BEST parts of my job.
At any rate, I am feeling much better and I think things are back on track. Actually, I know they are. For now, anyway, and that’s all I need. Thanks to my family for their support and to each and every single one of my members. You all mean so much to me.
