I am grateful that I went to Weight Watchers yesterday.
And helped “convince” that young woman to stay.

Honest but upbeat. I love that it’s so positive.
The two others who shared.
And my sharing.
That having gotten lost on the way to OA, I finally decided to just come home. It was enough of driving around for 30 minutes lost in the rain. Good decision.

That day at Best Buy. A year ago April. I’ll never forget it. When I was afraid and nervous going in, not know HOW to buy a tv… how does one hang those new kinds… etc. And standing there waiting, – the veil was lifted. Omg. The veil. Was lifted. I never even know I had a veil I was seeing the world through. But I did! I knew when it was gone.
And it has not returned since!
