Sooooooo, tonight I FINALLY got to meet Shirls aka Happychix and let me tell you...her pictures do her NO justice. This woman is stunning in person. She just radiates this glow, and her eyes are so twinkly and sparkly. She REALLY is a HAPPY Chick :O) Here's some pics from tonight.

Weigh in today...I'm still 137 lbs.

Monday, July 23, 2007


I'm sorry that I haven't been around for the last 2+ weeks. As some of you have seen on my blog, my Mom is having some major health problems right now. I have been traveling back and forth between her city and mine taking care of her, and just being there to support her. I've been very upset as my Mom is my bestfriend. I have avoided the GDT mainly because of lack of time, but also because I don't have anything cheerful to post. Rather then bringing the board down, I have just stayed away.

My weight has stuck at 137 lbs for my last two WI's. I think it's because of all the stress in my life right now. I have been eating 30 daily points and every one of my Flex points. I guess the important part is that my weight has stabalized, and I'm no longer losing. Once things settle down in my life, I will work on gaining 5-10 lbs back.

I hope you are all doing well. I have really missed you guys, and I have lurked when I find the time. I am not gone forever, and will be back to posting regularly once my life is back to normal.

GOOD LUCK on those WI's ladies (and gents). I hope you are all continuing to do well on your journeys :O)

Just a quick update to let you all know what's going on with me. My Mom is having health problems so I won't be around very much the next few weeks. I am doing alot of travelling between her house and mine. We live 3 hrs apart. I just want you all to know so that you understand if I am unable to return emails, or just don't seem like myself. Take care, and GOOD LUCK on those weigh in's everyone :O)

This week I proved that I gain weight just as easily as I lose it :OP

Im up to 141 lbs which means I gained 4! Yay! This was a good thing. Last week my weight dropped below the healthy weight range for my height. I couldn't stop my body from losing. I am so grateful that Runny and Tdufour took the time to analyze my points for me and figure out what I should actually be eating in order to maintain. If I would have kept with Weight Watchers guidelines I would have continued to lose for who knows how long. Runny worked it out that I should actually be eating 40 points per day (that includes flex) and to double my AP's when I eat them. It worked like a charm! I packed on 4 lbs and I've been sitting at 141 for 5 days straight. I feel like a million bucks. Those 4 lbs made such a difference! Now I finally feel like I've got the maintenance thing under control. At 40 pts per day, I can definitely keep this weight off for life. That's alot of food! There is a light at the end of the tunnel :O)

Although I added 4 pts ABOVE my regular maintenace points for this week, it still didn't stop my weight loss. I'm down 3.8 lbs this week and I'm not happy about it. I am now 137 lbs. Now I need to work on gaining weight to get back into the healthy range for my height :O(

Weight Watchers responded to the petition and my letter today, here is their response...

Hello Shaunna –

Once again, I’m extremely sorry about these circumstances. Please know that your ineligibility has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with your appearance or your tattoos, and it pains me that you would even think that. This is most assuredly not the first time we’ve had to reject a candidate because of rapid weight loss. Anyone who loses more than 2 pounds a week on average is simply not eligible to be a success story. Candidates have averaged 2.1 pounds a week, and still been rejected. Unfortunately, this is a requirement that we must abide by. Time after time, our science and nutrition team has told us that there is no wiggle room here.

I’m glad you think the blog-article is a great idea. I think it will be lots of fun. We want to share your story, and this is a way for us to be able to do it. It’s also a way for you to be in your element and use your unique voice.

Please let me know if you are officially interested, and we’ll put together some guidelines.
