I’m pretty sure that if I was a random stranger reading this blog (Hello Random Stranger) I would think that I was a globe trotter. Well I’m not. I’m just lucky that living in Scranton means I’m very close to a lot of fun things. (I’m also lucky to live in Scranton because good things happen here to but that’s a blog post for a different day.) A few weekends ago I worked the Farmer’s Market on Saturday and drove down to Atlantic City to spend the weekend with some awesome ladies!
As I’ve said (here, here, here) I am a member of Weight Watchers and I found a wonderful place on the messages boards where I get to talk about myself, complain and generally just talk to people who get what losing a lot of weight is like. Anyway, a fairly large group of us went to Atlantic City to get together and just talk.
It was wonderful to sit in random hotel rooms and talk about all the issues I have losing the last 20 pounds, or why people gained weight to begin with, the daily struggles. It was just good. I felt energized when I got back and happy. These women are my support and are awesome. (This also includes the many who weren’t in AC that weekend.)
Thanks Boardies. I love you!
As always to many pictures. I also want to say I don’t gamble and because of that I don’t really recommend Atlantic City. I would much prefer a quieter place with less people and less of the depression I think gambling brings. (The homeless sitting at the slots are a lot for me to handle. People bathing in the sink at Trump.) The weather wasn’t great so I did spend a lot of time sitting in Starbucks or peoples rooms BUT that’s OK because I got to meet and see these women.
