Library Losers: I Learned to Love Myself Unconditionally.

Our total weight this week is 537.5. Two maintained, one gained, one lost. We are staying pretty close to our beginning weight, which might be a hint that we are where we need to be.

This week, I thought I would entertain some questions that have come the Losers’ way over the past few weeks:

  1. Are the weigh-ins done with or without clothes?
    • Let me emphasize that we do not condone any sort of nudity in the library, although last semester we did find a pair of pants in one of the study rooms. Most of us weigh in the privacy of our homes, and those who weigh here may take off shoes and jewelry, but that’s all. However, I do foresee a bolder group of librarians doing a YouTube video–“Naked Librarians.”
  2. There have been rumors that the two Losers who work in the library have been coerced into joining. Is this true?
    • No one was forced, but the enthusiasm level has waned. And, to be fair, I have emphasized how hard it is to write a blog and the Wednesday Loser entries help fill up the week, so there may have been some emotional coercion at play.
  3. Are you setting a bad example for your thousands of young impressionable readers with this emphasis on weight loss?
    • Our average readership numbers are more around 15-20. And,  honestly, our concern with weight loss really only occurs for about fifteen minutes each Wednesday. But we have all adopted some healthier habits from our participation:
      • Joining a gym.
      • Cutting back on the fries.
      • Eating more veggies.
      • Going for walks.
      • Trading out unhealthy for healthy snacks.
  4. What is the most important lesson you’ve learned so far?
    • You may not be at your goal weight, but you can still be happy and like yourself. And that does seem to be one thing the Losers have mastered.

Until next week!


One thought on “Library Losers: I Learned to Love Myself Unconditionally.

  1. Well (and humorously) said! I would like to add that something that is helping me (an all-or-nothing person), is to completely have a “NO” list committment. So far, it’s working. I’ve eliminated “candy”. One at a time, one at a time. Thanks
