At weigh-in on Tuesday there was a new receptionist. I stepped up to her station and onto the scale. This was a good week; I lost another 3.2 lbs (I blame vegetables) and am finally back to where I was pre-half marathon. She looked at my weigh-in card and said, "Do you have a weight goal yet? You're inside our [Weight Watchers'] weight range for your height."
"Well, I think I want to lose a total of 75 pounds, which would put me at 143. I'm getting really close." (true: only 10 more pounds to go!)
"Wow...I mean, how have you done it? I mean, what's keeping you motivated?"
HERE IT COMES
WAIT FOR IT
I FINALLY GOT TO SAY IT!
"I'm a long-distance runner."
