Just joined WW today (online version). I just wanted to jump in and say "hi".

My goal is to lose around 80 lbs and I know it will be a struggle as I have such a hard time losing weight.

We have a cruise planned for March 2013 and a WDW trip for October 2013 so my goal is to lose at least 30lbs by March.

I think 30 lbs by March is a very reachable a goal. A lady in our meeting last night was on a cruise last week. Of course, the question was, "How much did you gain?" Her answer, "I LOST four pounds!"

Wow! That's amazing! I've heard cruises are really rough on weight loss.

Hello I agree 30 by March is a reasonable goal. Don't think about what a struggle it may be. Set smaller goals with shorter time frames and before you know it you'll lose that weight. Good luck!

Hi, I'm Krissy. I just joined WW last week, and tomorrow is my first weigh in. It has been a good first week and I am feeling good, so I am looking forward to tomorrow.

Three years ago I lost 38 pounds on the South Beach diet, and then two years ago I quit smoking and gained it all back, plus two, for a total of 40. I kept trying to go back to the SB program, but I wasn't sticking to it and I felt deprived with some of the limitations. After many false starts, I decided I need to change what I was doing and decided to join Weight Watchers. It is just so sensible, and I like the fact that I can eat anything in moderate amounts. I also think I need the accountability that going to the meetings will provide.

Like I said, I'm feeling really good about the program and really motivated. I'm hoping the switch in my brain has been turned, and I will have the self discipline to keep on the program. Now, I just need to work more exercise into my routine...

Welcome! We have similar weight loss goals. I want to lose 80lbs as well. We have a cruise coming up in December, and I am hoping to be 30lbs lighter. This week has been hard since my parents are in town and of the holiday. We will see on Saturday when I weigh in!

I've been away from the thread for awhile, so I wanted to jump in and say hi. This week I reached my 5% and 10 lbs. At the
Meeting where we had to set summer goals I said I wanted to lose a lb a week for 10 lbs total and I'm half way to that goal. I'm excited!

Did everyone enjoy their holiday? How did you stay on plan?

I joined WW online 6 weeks ago and I've lost 10.2 pounds. 30 pounds by March 2013 is very doable.

Good luck!

Well, I ended week one yesterday, and at my first weigh in I was down 7.2 pounds! I know not to expect that kind of weight loss in a weekly basis, but it was a good start to keep my motivated. I hope to lose 1-2 pounds per week. If I can do that, I will be down significantly by the time I go to WDW in November, in 16 weeks time!

That is awesome! I weigh in tomorrow and I am nervous. I ate a little too much this week. I tracked everything, but I try not to dip into my extra points too much. We will see how it goes.

My weight watchers leader sent this and I loved it so I thought I'd share:

David Kirchhoff, CEO of WW had an epiphany during his last vacation...."I can still live in the world and not have to choose between crazed food binge and monk-like chastity. With practice, I can continue to learn a middle way"

Exactly! That is the beauty of Weight Watchers!

My WW meeting was closed on Wed due to the holiday so I found another WW center on Thursday. I didn't gain and I didn't lose...I'll take that! I have continued with my running by walking 8 mins/running 7 mins until I reach one hour. I can cover 4 1/2 miles in one hour. I really do enjoy going to the gym now. Funny when I started walking May '11 I couldn't walk but only 20 mins. I love the new ME!
