It was pizza and salad. Only caesar dressing, so I kept it plain, and two squares of pizza...it was sort of a margarita type, so the cheese was not evenly spread, so I picked pieces without a lot of cheese. I also avoided the dessert tray. Not very filling, but kept my points relatively low. Will munch on veggies and fruits to get me to dinner.

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!

I'm a rejoiner too! congrats on the 25.2 so far...that is AWESOME!

Welcome to the thread! So, you've lost 25 lbs in about 2 months? You are a rock star . There are a few of us here are are "return" visitors to WW and we also have some Lifetime members here too. You'll fit right in .

I agree. For several of us, it's not our first rodeo. I found, however, that this thread and the folks on it have kept me on the horse! Welcome to all.

Ok, I have to ask. What does NSV stand for? I thought I had it figured out but now I am not so sure.

So, I reached a goal today, way ahead of schedule. When I joined WW in the spring, I had hoped to loose 40 pounds by my 40th birthday. This would get me about halfway to my ultimate goal. Well, I am now down 42.6 pounds as of today's weigh in, and my 40th birthday is still 2 months away! So I have amended my goal to hopefully be down 50 by 40. I'm feeling good about the changes I have made and am planning to start my 40s being a healthier person overall.

WI this am.......down another lb....total loss of 3 lbs! I've struggled with getting started(lost a lb then gained it back) but doing much better this week. Nice to see 189 on the scale! My goal this week is to get more exercise in. Anyone do a DVD workout? I just got the Tone it Up DVD and its great! Everyone have a great day!

Good for you for doing this at your age. I wish I had! Congrats on meeting your goal ahead of time. I like to set little goals rather than just look at the big picture. Makes it seem more do-able.

Uggh. Up 1.4 at WI, and pretty undeserved -- I had a really good OP week.

I keep wondering whether the 4.6 loss last week was accurate. My scale at home and the one at WW are pretty close. I weigh every morning at home, and I never got close to the weight from last week's WI.

Oh well, onward for next week! Tracked everything for today, with dinner pre-planned, and have 2 APs so far -- I plan on 6 more throughout the day.
