So it’s official. I now have a regular meeting where I am officially working as a receptionist for WW. My mentoring period is ‘officially’ over! I have to say that the amount of paperwork and MATH (gulp) is super daunting. But each time I learn something and I am hoping it will become easier and more automatic over time. And in a few weeks the whole system is moving to computer-only which I think (hope) will be easier. But still, there is a LOT to keep track of behind the scenes which of course I never had any clue about. Last night was a pretty big crowd and I felt like I was juggling eggs AND chickens. But I survived, and I think it all went well.
I like my leader very much. He’s (yes it’s a he!) very inspiring, upbeat, FUNNY and uses the word “mindful” a lot. Which I love.
I was so tempted to hop on the scale last night “just to see” but I didn’t.
I feel lucky and glad that I was offered a regular position the day after I became “official.” Many people have to spend a long time just working as vacation fillers or substitutes. It will be good to have a regular place and time, and to get to know people who are regulars. I will probably be going for Leader training sometime in the fall but at this point I am not in any huge hurry. I feel like I still have a lot to learn. Anyway, if any of y’all are loooking for a great meeting, come on over to Oakland 6pm Monday eves. Here I go!

This is so exciting! They gave you a regular spot right away because they know you will be phenomenal. Someday soon, you’ll be a leader.
They switched to computers in the WW branch that I go to a couple of weeks ago. While they are still learning the ropes, the leader said it is much easier. And I don’t have to carry my little monthly card anymore, which is very nice because I have a tendency to misplace it.
The best of luck with your “Official” WW position! Yay!

As with any job, you’ll get it soon, no worries. If you like it, stick with it.

Congratulations!!! There’s nothing better than doing something you love, as it rarely feels like “work.”
Way to go!!
