My name is Larissa....and I am fat.

So I started Weight Watchers yesterday. I just cannot seem to lose this baby weight on my own (of course I am sure that the slurpees and cookies don't really help) so I decided to get proactive.
I have only been on the plan for about 26 hours now, but I have some ideas I would like to present to the president of Weight Watchers on some things they could change.

1. The "bonus" 35 points I get a week to spend, and the points that I don't use during the day, really should roll over for at least a month. I mean the major cell phone companies have seen how this "roll over" allowance has boosted cell contract cells. And really in this newer greener age, why should we be so wasteful as to throw away points like that?

2. Slurpees really should not count toward my points. Within 3 hours of joining up, I had figured out how many points a slurpee are. 4 or 5 for a 16 oz. Now I like to get the 28oz ones. Even though I get an extra five points for breastfeeding, I am still not happy about this. So since slurpees are practically ice anyways, they should count towards my 6 glasses of water during the day.
It has only been a day, but I am sure that I will come up with more good ideas.

So I start school on Monday. I do not know why, but I am a little nervous. So excited but nervous. I am going for a BA in Business. I just haven't figured out if I want to put computers in there or not. It would probably be wise, but I am just not sure if that is my cup of tea.
So anyways, I push on towards bettering myself through a higher education. Or something like that.
Oh yeah, I am also starting an Etsy business. Making little girl hair clips, tutus, animal towels, and pillowcase dresses. I am pretty excited about that. So one more thing on my plate. But in a good way.

That Bug of yours has the CUTEST giggle smile! Oh, my, I want to crawl through the screen and scoop her up. (Which would totally wipe that grin right off her face...)

Weight Watchers and College in the same week?! And an Etsy launch? Wow. You are a multi-tasker extrordinaire. But you are one of the only people I know who could do it, you individually-glued-pearls-on-the-tutu woman. ;)

(And, Lawanda - you're going to have to give out the best WW tips! You totally rock.)

Oh dear! I am doing lousy at WW right now. :( But I know you can do it Larissa!!!! :)

You can use your extras for your slurpee every day :) And then just eat good stuff like veggies, and that will do ya ;)

I was thinking the same thing about our multi-tasking superwoman here... Larissa, you are amazing!!!

good luck with your venture in business - college and etsy!!
