Week 27 – Weigh In

Week 27

Nov 19, 2005 – Nov 25, 2005

YVONNE
>>> last weigh in was November 19, 2005
– Cumulative – (37.0) pounds lost

>> (Week 1 of the “rest of her life as a LifeTime Member of WeightWatchers.ca!)

HART
– This week – ?????????????
– Cumulative – (27.2) pounds lost

>>> Yvonne only has to weigh in once a month.

>>> HART had decided to FORGO weighin this Saturday November 26, 2005 and is switching to MONDAY weighins now .. at 6pm Mondays, instead of 10am Saturdays … Yvonne doesn’t think this will work for me, because it doesn’t give me a chance to ‘digest’ the weekend’s dinner and eatings. For instance, this Sunday (November 27, 2005) we are off for a family birthday party luncheon/dinner …. We’ll see how it goes for me!
