Wee, themepark bloat! Up 4.2 pounds. The receptionist didn't even say a word to me, guess she was embarrassed for me? I sat down and looked and started laughing. I knew my waistband was a bit tight the last couple of days!

After the meeting (we are still down at Disneyland) we got to talk to a nice lady, maybe helped her and also reaffirmed what we are doing and how we are continuing on, etc etc. don't know what I would do without the meetings!

I don't know about your place of weigh in but our ladies are not allowed to say anything to us about our weight. I guess someone complained and corporate office told our leader all they were to do is write down the weight.

My WI place always says "great job" whenever there's a loss, nothing if there's a gain. So I can understand why having them say nothing either way might be preferable -- you wouldn't be able to know if the person in front of you gained or lost.

Good day! Had my first weigh in today and I was down 2.6. Happiness! I had a couple of rough days toward the middle of the week so I was very content with my loss.

Way to go!!! Those rough days will happen (or at least they do for me), and you just need to press on through them!

That surprises me. We're supposed to mirror the response of the members.

Our "leader" about two months ago had a discussion with us before she started the meeting. Apparently there were members complaining that others could hear what the receptionist response was to their weight.

Last week she told me exactly what I had lost. Today the other lady told DH that he had gained a little. So I think she was just having a reaction to the amount. I'm not a person who cares, so she would have been safe with me!

Gosh I wish the leaders could simply tell the listeners to mind their own business! When I'm in line I'm talking to others and not paying attention to the other people around me and their weighins, and if I do hear it, I feel that I did something wrong!



4.2 is just amusing...it's definitely not all a fat gain in one week, you know?

Back from our little trip to see my parents (who live in Fenwick Island, DE -- so when I say a trip to see my parents, I might as well say "a trip to the beach").

Up 2 lbs on our home scale. I tracked -- stayed right at my 26 on Thursday, 57 (you read that right) on Friday, and 30 on Saturday. Thing is, the Friday eating was not outrageous! But it was a "little bit" of this and that on the boardwalk and all those little bits do add up quickly. I still ate less on Friday than my normal eating would have been pre-WW. No wonder I got to the place I was with my weight. This trip was enlightening.

I need to step away from the scale. I weight myself every day and I should not do that! My normal WI is Tuesday and my scale has not moved at all this week. I have tracked, exercised, etc and nada. I will keep carrying on, maybe its saving up for a big loss next week! I'm .4 away from my 10 lb loss.

I've been out of commission awhile......things have just been busy. I stayed within my points this week, but had a lot of carbs, which seems to play havoc with my weight loss.

I actually was expecting a again, and didn't weigh in on Friday-I just felt I couldn't deal with it, so waited until Saturday. Was happy with a .6 loss-and hoping for an even better number on the scale next Friday.

Discovered a salad I LOVE at Fresh and Easy- a spinach salad that has a total of 6 points for the entire bag. So a good side for dinner (4 of us) or I use it for dinner when dh is out of town, and add a little chicken.

Am driving for my son's family weekend at school next weekend. Will bring a little cooler so I can have fruits and veggies and other snacks on the way down, and plan to be very careful at the university meals.

Wishing everyone a good week!

Julia

Thanks! Shakeology and Turbo Firw are both part of the Beachbody franchise. Shakeology is a meal replacement shake that is the healthiest meal of your day. You should check it out and see all of the great things it has in it. My shakes are only 5 pts, I drink it for brkfst, and it gives me my chocolate fix.

Turbo Fire is a 90 day workout program that focuses on the HIT method (high intensity training), where you work out as hard as you can in 1 minute increments in a 20-25 minute block of time, that alows your body to burn calories all day. (the after burn)

Maybe you need a little cheat to get your metabolism going again?
