Has anyone tried the Food Spotting app? Dd used it last week in an unfamiliar city and it was very helpful to them.

I got my new haircut last night and I love it! I cut off about 12 inches and now it just brushes my shoulders. I have it layered a little so it has some body and shape.

I've been faithful tracking again since I'd kinda fallen off for about a week. I was paying attention, but not really motivated. I'm still not super motivated, but I'm back in the game. I will not quit, I will not quit, I will not quit. lol

On the down side, my son hurt his foot yesterday and had to go to the walk in for xrays. We ended up stopping at Wendy's. I tracked it so we will see...

Hope everyone is having a great Friday!

With 12 inches of hair gone, I bet you literally feel "light headed." Good job tracking. I find that, as long as I'm tracking --even if it's tracking a lot of points in a day or two -- I do much better on the plan. It's all about accountability to ourselves.

It is a beautiful sunny day in mid-Michigan. Michigan State University's homecoming parade is tonight and I'm looking forward to walking over to watch it. The parade lines up at a community center that's about a 7 minute walk from my house. Can't wait to see and hear the Spartan marching band!

Coming here every day reminds me to track. We should all do that -- read here, then track.

StayCool -- I'll bet the drastic haircut has made you feel like a whole new person. My oldest dd had hers done last week and I honestly did not recognize her when she posted a pic because her face looked SO much thinner. And now this week, she has lost five pounds (doing the other program, no longer doing WW). A haircut can really influence our confidence level and self-respect. Maybe you could show us a picture of the new do sometime.

Well ... I'm a little bummed. I tracked everything and stayed within my points (although I ate my 14 APs) and I was up .2. The last couple weeks I ate MORE than my points, including my APs. I was only able to work out a couple times because I was sick, so maybe that's why I gained. The last 4 weeks I got in between 19-25 APs. I already got in 2 points today . My gain wasn't a lot, but I was getting used to being a loser, LOL.

I agree!

Unfortunately, tracking didn't much help my 42 point dinner last night. That's what a Pizza Hut medium thin and crispy pizza is, in case anyone is interested. Yes. It took a couple of hours, but I ate the whole thing. The whole thing. Definitely a trigger food.

With WI tomorrow, it'll be interesting to see what effect it had - Sigh. I'm having a lighter day today (then again, I'd have to really WORK to have a heavier one!)

Happy weekend, everyone! Make better choices than I did!!!

I did the same thing over Labor Day weekend! And you've reminded me I need to send my hair into LocksofLove.

The .2 could be from anything, so as long as you were on the plan I wouldn't change anything. Just keep on going! I personally find that my gains and losses (apart from the gains that are proving themselves to be water and just the extra bulk of food, like the one I had last week) are from what I did two weeks before any given weigh in. Seems it might be the same for you?

I know it's frustrating Robin. But you'll burn that off soon. I hope you're feeling better; I'm sure that will make a difference for you this week.

You'll always be a loser to us!

Lovesmurfs, I am so proud of you! You ate 42 points AND YOU TRACKED IT! Every single person on this thread has eaten more than enough once or twice, but you figured out the points values and recorded it. I've gone overboard before, and then I try to keep my points reasonable for the next few days and maybe increase my activity.

I'm in the middle of a plateau, trying to do everything I can to move past it with very little luck. . I keep tracking, I keep moving, and I am drinking water like a camel about to head into the desert .

Have a great weekend everyone!

I made the mistake of baking cookies last Sunday. It has taken me till today to get back on track but I made it. Hopefully a lesson has been learned.

I'm not sure. I was pretty hungry after I started to feel better.

Stayed the same this week- I'm good with that- the last 2 weeks have been SO rough for me and I'm not sure exactly why.

Well, even after my meeting from Friday through Tuesday in San Diego AND the 42-point pizza debacle, I lost 4.6 pounds. Go figure. I made sure to drink LOADS of water yesterday.

Total 37.2 lbs. down!
