Lo, I have been sucked in.

So I joined freaking Facebook. For the love of God.

I joined because of the Weight Watchers Lose for Good campaign, which I hope you will join as well, if you are a Facebooker. Is that a word? Well, I'm saying it's a word.

I have this cool widget on my profile which says I've lost 6 pounds since September 7th. The money I've raised by losing those 6 pounds can help provide 26 meals to hungry people.

And actually? I've lost 6.4 pounds. The widget won't let me include the .4, but if you are trying to lose weight you know how important that stupid .4 is, am I right?


I don't make any money from Weight Watchers. I don't work for them. I'm just telling you, it's the easiest thing I've ever done to lose weight. It's really working for me. And the Lose for Good campaign is feeding hungry people.


And that's pretty amazing.

I've been seriously going to join WW for the past month. I lost weight on it before and really liked it. I keep putting it off for some damn reason but the more you write about it the more I'm encouraged to join. So I'm coming out of lurk mode to say don't stop writing about it k :o) I love reading about your success and YES I know how important that .4 is!! Congratulations!

Facebook is a timesuck, but myspace is much worse! I'm glad you're there!

Welcome. It's good-ish to be a lemming. Or so "they" tell me.

Ohhhh Facebook. I still can't figure it out, but I'm hooked too. Like I need more stuff on my plate!

And thanks to YOU I'm enjoying Weight Watchers...and I *think* I've been successful so far. We'll see though for sure on Monday when I weigh in. Maybe I'll join the Facebook group as well, sounds like a good cause.

I felt so honored to be befriended by you - not that I use my FB acct much now that the games have all been pulled for copyright infringement but still. An honor.
