I don't like it when people eat at Weight Watchers meetings.
I mean, come on! It's a half an hour meeting, and you can't make it through without spooning stuff into your mouth from your bowl of...of...whatever it was?
And you, with the raisins, why?
Raisins aren't bad, but why?
So we can see how healthy you are?
To me it's like sinning in the chapel.
You shouldn't do it.
I don't know why this bugs me so much, but it does.
If you have to, pop something in your mouth before you walk in, or shove something in on the way out the door, but not in the meeting.
Come on.

I have been going to WW a long time and I think I know why they do this. If you don't eat anything or just eat a little before the meeting you might be .2 or more less on the scale . I personally wear the same outfit and weigh in the morning on an empty stomach to eliminate any reasons for my weight to be off. I arrive early and I confess I eat a granola bar while waiting for the meeting to begin. Because I am hungry. And neurotic. And if I had eaten before the meeting and my weight was more than I thought it should be, I would wonder the entire time just how much less I could have been on an empty stomach. I am crazy like that. Tomorrow after I weigh in I will eat that granola bar in the hall. I never thought about bothering others and I will be more considerate. :)

What I thought was the most wierd, though, was that someone brought a bowl of something? Why not in a baggie? Also, are you saying that it would be a sin to sneak one of my kids fruit snacks in the chapel? I could be in trouble.

I have no experience in this area, but I will take your word for it.

But now I can totally envision an SNL sketch about this. Loud crunchy carrot sticks, wrappers and other noisy things that might disturb the peace. Oooh, or someone opening a bag of microwave popcorn and getting mobbed by the other members of the group.

Cinderill, It doesn't bother me that much, it just seems odd that you would eat at a weight watchers meeting. They're not that long.

Molly, Yes, they brought a huge tupperware bowl. Like the 1950's type your grandma had. White, but you could see what was inside. Looked thick whatever it was.
I don't consider giving your kids snacks in the chapel a sin.

Heffalump, maybe you could write a skit and send it in.

A tupperware bowl?! There's no excuse for that.
