Return to Weight Watchers

by Anne Bennett on July 30, 2012

Lulu on the left: “I may look sophisticated and gorgeous (which, let’s face it, I am), but touch my baby carrot and I’ll rip your head off.”

Michael Jordan retired three times. I only retired once, but that was enough.

After careful consideration, I’ve decided to return to Weight Watchers on Friday mornings for the 10 am and 12 noon meetings at the Quivera location in Overland Park, Kansas.

You know, hanging around at home with these hungry poodles hasn’t exactly been a piece of cake. They’re high-maintenance gals, as you can see. I need a occasional break from all the primping and fussing and, oh yeah, noshing. Way too much of that!

By the way, I’m the one in the middle without the bib. I’m relieved to say that I don’t drool at the dinner table.  At least, not yet.

For those of you who knew me when,  our meetings are going to be a blast from the past and then some:  no pretensions, no gimmickry, no whining, just an irreverent, positive, I’m-mad-as-hell-and-I’m-not-going-to-take-it-anymore” approach to weight loss and healthy lifestyle. If you’re not prepared to come and laugh, don’t come.

Can you handle it? If so, I’ll see you August 10!

I’d love to come to you meeting, but it is just too far for me (I live downtown KC) I will continue to enjoy your blog, Thanks.

Trivia time! Who said “Just when I think I’m out, they pull me back in!”?

A. Michael Corleone in the terrible sequel, “The Godfather Part III”
B. Anne Bennett
C: All of the above

Of course, the answer is “C”. I’m sure Anne’s sequel will be far more successful than “The Godfather Part III”.

We miss you at the 9am Saturday morning meetings! Wish I could just skip work on Fridays to come to your mid-day meetings … I think that’s frowned upon in an elementary school 😉
I’m sure everyone will be happy to have you back!

I wish I could get my corgi’s to pose like that. I miss you on Saturday mornings. Thank God for your blog.
