So I'm experimenting with using my weeklies. I was only using a handful of them each week, always less than 10. I never touched my APs either. So now I'm using some of my weeklies every day. So I will see if I can lose like that too.

One of my problems is that there was an error in ordering my thyroid pill so I've been out for a week. I hate mail order meds btw... Talk about having no energy or motivation to do anything! I called up and threw a little fit so they are expediting them for me. This is probably why I feel so blah lately.
Don't give up! I'm sure the scale will go down. Experiement with using your AP and your weeklies. You'll see if that works.

I had a long talk with myself last night and tried to talk myself down from the self-loathing that seems to occur after such episodes and told myself 'tomorrow is a fresh start'. I feel much more sane today.

I was just listening to a podcast (Half Size Me) and heard something I had to immediately write down:

Its not about being perfect, its about being persistent.

Love that.

Thanks for letting me share.
WOW I really could have written this myself! Even after two years on WW I still struggle with binge eating. After last week counting every morsel, activity points and weekly points and feeling great, this week I started off by eating 1/2 a container of ice cream. I felt lousy after. It didnt really stop there.This is always followed by the self loathing cycle ( I can say this has gotten a tiny bit better. Maybe because I am getting back on track?)

This week I also wrote down how I felt in my tracker (doing paper and etools this week!). I actually think I felt bettter writing down how lousy I felt

Its not about being perfect, its about being persistent.

I love the blogs they are so helpful.

You are certainly not alone. Have a great day!

BTW when your in the middle of it, it really does feel as if you lost your mind, doesnt it?

Thank you. I'm determined to not walk away this time. It is just so much easier when the scale backs you up! I did weigh myself this morning and it is moving downward so eating extra points for the last couple of days seems to be helping.

Last night I told my 11 year old daughter something I need to keep in mind. If you don't eat enough, you won't lose weight and you can actually gain it. She looked at me like I had 2 heads. She is not overweight at all but she asked me the other day if she was fat. I don't want her to have to worry about her weight. So we talk a lot about how to be healthy, not skinny.

My goal weight is 147, and I started a week and a half ago at 194.5, and I am down 1.7 as of this morning. (Thursday is my weigh in day, but I started on Monday.)

The thing that had derailed me each and every time these last five years is vacation...and I leave for a long Disney weekend, a week from today...which is how I found you all. My goal for this trip is to make smart choices and TRACK everything. I think the lack of tracking is where I have fallen down in the past. I am also only going to allow myself to have alcohol one night, as that tends to be a trigger on vacation too.

Thank you for letting me share, this forum seems so welcoming!

Welcome to this thread. Many of us, myself included, have been on this road more than once. It seems like those of us who stay committed to checking in on this thread (which has been going for quite some time) manage to get a positive attitude through the support we find here -- even when we do fall off the WW bus every once in awhile.

I lost another .8 this week and got my first re-booted 5-lb star . My Thanksgiving goal is to get another one. I came down with a cold two days ago, it's the first one in months and I feel like a big baby. I am resisting the urge to eat comfort food . The good news is that the weekend will not be as point heavy because I'm sick and we have a swim meet so I won't be tailgating as hard as I have the last couple weeks. The bad news is that I really don't feel like working out.

Yes, I do feel like I'm losing my mind sometimes! I logically know what I need to do to lose weight but then something overrides my brain that wants FOOD and the cycle begins again.

That being said, yesterday was much better! I stayed within my points and got a great walk in last night. I really like the idea that fruits and veggies are zero points. I find that I'm making extra sides involving vegetables to help round out a meal. I roasted some asparagus and cherry tomatoes last night that were quite yummy.

Tomorrow is my first weigh-in and I'm trying to avoid any sodium-heavy foods.

I eat all of my weeklies and also most of my activity points. I am at the minimum daily points which is really not enough food for me. Maybe that means that I don't lose 2-3 lbs a week but I also don't feel that I am depriving myself.

He is very close to the next "decade" as well as his long awaited, hard fought 20%. Then again, we are odd and almost don't want to get those next milestones on this trip (we will still be in town for the next meeting as well) because our home leader gets so sad when we hit the milestones without her!
Congratulations to you and your DH! It's great that you went to a meeting while on vacation. I remember when a bunch of Good Sam ladies came to my meeting since they were in town for a "Samboree".

I LOVE WW because it really is a way of life. All of my heartburn is completely gone (i was living on antacids) , I no longer have cravings, I eat when Im hungry. Ive also found that if I cheat every couple of weeks, it jump starts my weight loss again! Anyhow, just thought Id say hey! Good luck everyone! :0)
Welcome to the thread! Great weight loss so far . What are the Shakeology and the Turbo Fire programs?

The last visit resulted in a gain, so I hope not to repeat that this time. I'm still not officially in "onederland" even though my home scale has had me there for the last fourteen days.
Happy birthday!!! You know, I would say that you made your goal. Can you go and weigh in a second time today? .4 is really not a lot to lose in a couple days considering how well you're doing.

I am still happy with that, I knew I would gain some back, but I am sure I will lose those extra pounds in the next few weeks. I am just happy to be back to tracking and exercising! And I did enjoy my vacation very much!!

Have a good week everyone!
3 lbs isn't really all that much for being on vacation and being sick. You'll lose it in no time!

Congratulations! It sounds like you had a visit from the "woosh fairy". Can you send her over to me?

I only have 1.4 lbs to lose to get back to my 46 lbs mark. No problem, I enjoy the program and I know I can get back to were I need to be. I'm back into size 10 pants so that means a lot!

My next 5K is this Saturday. I haven't been able to get to the gym because of injuries and sickness so I don't think my time will be any quicker than my time in April. The important thing to remember is that I can finish it!

-Stephanie
Have a great race! I keep on thinking about trying a 5K but my right knee is crap. I think I might find a "race" that also has a walk and do that instead.

Then this weekend is the Canadian Thanksgiving. We'll be at my FIL's for 3 meals. I'm going to eat maintenance points (35pts) on Sunday and try to have 15 WP's available so hopefully, I'll be fine.
Have a great Thanksgiving! You can make it through the weekend. Just made sure to make time for yourself .

So hard to workout when you don't feel well. Sometimes taking a long walk is just enough, not vigorous exercise, but still able to move a bit. Feel better and keep up the good work!

Anyone else using Active Link? I have been using it for a while and I love it. Well worth the extra $5 and I am tracking my activity points properly! I was way over stating my points before. I am losing weight so much more efficiently now!

I only just read about it today in the weekly, I don't think it's available at my meeting location, I'd like to know more about it...

The only thing I didn't do was exercise. Go figure! I had a crazy week and just didn't have time to do my usual morning walk.

So the scale is moving downward again and that is with me eating some of my WP each day. I think maybe I need to eat a little more than what I was so I'm going to stick with it. It looks like I will end up using at least half of them before I WI again.

A NSV... Last night my wonderful husband came home from work (at midnight) with a pint of Ben & Jerry's for me. He thought he was being a good guy because we normally eat ice cream every night before bed and he knew I hadn't bought any. I *used* to eat the whole thing in one sitting, especially when I was stressed. Last night I ate about 10 bites and put it back in the freezer. It was good but a LOT sweeter than what I've been eating lately.
