Not following the plan exactly (it was irritating my DH too much! LOL) but weighed in this week at 19.7 lbs lost. Also, I started a learn to run program (my goal is the TOT 10 mile race in 2013) and am up to 3 sets of 6 minutes running, 1 minute walking. My knees can hurt (I missed a week of the program because of a hamstring problem, but I got back up on the horse and sucked it up for the next week. I'm by far at the very back of the pack (they stopped walking back for me during the one minute walk and now run back to me on their last minute running! OMG) but I'm still out there doing it. I say I'm ahead of everyone home on the couch! I was in the middle of the pack, but everyone with me and behind me has quit.

Hopefully with more weight loss my knees will improve and I can more forward.

Stick with it. Same thing happened to me when I joined a C25K program a couple of years ago. The women that talked me into joining and signing up for the 5K dropped out after about 2 1/2 weeks. I stuck with it and ran that 5K and a number since then. I also run 3-4 times a week on my own and enjoy it. I had some foot problems when I started and went to the "good form running" clinic operated at the shoe store that coordinated the C25K. The doctor suggested that I likely needed more arch support and that really helped. They also video recorded how I ran and made suggestions to improve form, etc. That, too, helped tremendously. It was all free (although I always buy my family's sports shoes at the store).

Anyway, if you're having knee problems, it might not be simply your weight. There might be a different "mechanical" fix for your issue. Running through the pain can sometimes be a problem and I don't want you to give up because it hurts. You're doing great!

Down 1.4 at my WI today! I "reset" my start weight last week and, after one week, I'm going the right way. Each day is a challenge though! Too bad we have to eat every day.

WI day! A big loss this week. Down 2.6 pounds, bringing my weight loss to 18.6 pounds. I have lost the 3 pounds that I had gained on vacation plus a little more.

Congrats right back at you! Don't you love it when you are able to make up for a vacation gain and then punctuate it with the "plus a little more"?

I did have a put-a-big-grin-on-my-face moment. Last week I realized that I did not have a single pair of black pants to wear for this winter. So I went shopping today. In March I was wearing tight 22s. In the beginning of the summer I bought one pair of shorts, size 18, that I really thought I should have gotten in a 16 because they seem to have been cut so big. And I've been wearing hand-me-down jeans in size 16. But I honestly thought 18 was a better size for me. So I went into the dressing room with four pair of size 18 black pants -- all TOO BIG! Swapped them for 16s and bought one pair, the only pair that was short enough for me. Size 16 -- I cannot remember wearing a size 16 for at least 25 years! Back in the 80s might have been the last time I wore 16s. Woo-Hoo!
Welcome to Onederland! What a great NSV for you to fit into 16's. Isn't it funny how we get stuck on a size or a number and keep on thinking ourselves that size? Like you thought you were an 18 because 10 months ago that was a small size for you ... but you are actually smaller than that! Congratulations!

3 lbs from WDW is nothing! That's the salt from a couple boxes of popcorn . Way to get back to program right away! I usually end up with a couple more "cheat days" because I am exhausted from my vacation, LOL. You guys are doing the right thing!

Wow! 2.2 lbs is a low when you have been doing things for a while.

Ohhhh! So close to 20 lbs! You'll get it next week. I quit the C25K again due to my knees. All last week when I was sick they were aching and waking me up at night. I started to walk again and I walked for 50 minutes yesterday. I realized when I was out on my walk this morning (65 minutes ) that my knees were (1) not hurting while I was walking and (2) didn't hurt the night before. Hmmm ... so maybe you can walk take long walks between your running days?

Congratulations! Isn't is freeing to do the "reset"? It's a whole new start.

Remember, you can repeat weeks if you're not quite ready to move on.

I'm doing the C25K for the second time now, and once I get to the part where I can do distance instead of time, I'm doing that. Today I did what I thought was #3 of Week 2, but later found that I'd already finished Week 2. But you know what? The accidental #4 of Week 2 was AWESOME!

How was it irritating your husband for you to be fully on the program?

Official weigh in...up .6.

But considering I ate my way through food and wine fest, and had a 5.2 weight loss the week before...I'll take it. My average weight loss per week is 1.6/week. At that rate, I could be at goal by summer , but only time will tell.

The only thing that has me down is that I have a work luncheon today. I have no idea what they are having so there is no way to plan. (It would be considered bad form to not eat or bring my own lunch. Company bigwig will be there...) Here's hoping that it's not too bad!

I'm feeling a little emoticon happy today.

Wow! That's not bad at all! Can you eat something before the luncheon? I guess you could just go and make the best of it. It's better today, the day after your weigh in, than the day before your weigh in. Just use your weeklies for it or work in a little more exercise and activity points.

Today's NSV: I threw out the not quite empty package of Halloween Oreos. Beware! They are orange frosting filled cookies of the devil.

Good morning everyone!!

Hope you don't mind if I join your thread? I've been following WW (this time) since July & don't always get to the meetings because of my work schedule, shuttling around my active teenager, etc. So I was hoping I could join in, maybe glean a few things, share some NSVs, recipes & good ideas?

A little about me -- I'm a single, 40 year old mom to a fantastic 14 year old teenager. I work full time outside the home, and am involved with DD's GS troop. I am currently training to complete the PHM in February (first half marathon! - longest I've gone so far is a 10K!!), and since I rejoined WW in July, I've lost 25.2 pounds (weigh in is tomorrow). I made LT on WW back in 2007, but put all that weight back on, plus about another 30, so I'm essentially back where I was 6 years ago (I lost about 5 before officially rejoining).

Look forward to getting to know you all & supporting each other as we reach for our goals!
