Two years ago about this time, my husband, son, sister and I hopped a plane and headed for Oktoberfest in Munich. We had a fantastic time, and it made us want to go back for more.
This year, more came in the form of Oktoberfest in San Francisco, which we went to last evening on Pier 48. It wasn’t quite the same as the original version, but fun all the same.
Plenty of good music, lederhosen, dirndls, German beer, sausages, pretzels and Bavarian desserts constituted a simulated Munich experience…except, I wasn’t wearing a dirndl or lederhosen, I don’t drink, and I ate nothing. The music was the part I liked.
I didn’t care about the food and drink part of it. I looked back at some pictures of the “real Oktoberfest” and was struck by the difference in my appearance from BWW, before Weight Watchers, and now. I like the MOWW, member of Weight Watchers, body much better.
The perfect picture will take place next Oktoberfest, when my husband and I plan to go back to Munich, and I will be three months away from my 60 pounds off goal. I might even invest in a dirndl.
Talk to you soon.
