I am really happy with that, I had a much better week than the last 2.

You gals are all so amazing. I reached my goal three weeks ago and mentally set myself up to lose another 5. I find myself not tracking, not running and having an extra piece of bread here and there. I stuck with ww to get through the holidays but what good is it if i am sabotaging myself?

Up 0.4 but since I thought it would be more I guess I should be happy with that.

You too! Just went to WI (one of 10, I think) -- up 2.0 pounds, making me exactly even with where I was a month ago. Trips, family visits, and driving in to the office (resulting in no walking to the train station to and from) helped to stall the weight loss.

Onward, though! Have a great week!

I went to my meeting, but skipped weigh in. I was "good" all the way through Wednesday night but I knew I would be up so I skipped the weigh in for my own mental health. There were 8 of us there and we received a free WW thermal Lunch Box . It's really nice!

Free lunch bags? How cool!

I was down .6 for the week, which I view as miraculous considering the unfortunate encounter I had with some Belgian chocolates earlier in the week. So I'm happy. That's 13.6 so far.

We had 10 people or thereabouts at our meeting today. I'm curious about what the new thing is that they're going to announce/release next week.

I've lost 1.4 this week, 89.2 overall! I almost fell of the scale! Though I was as careful as I could be for Thanksgiving. I still ate my favorite things, but I modified them and ate much smaller portions. I tracked every day, even on Thanksgiving. The fact that we did all of the cooking helped, because I had control over all of the ingredients. Christmas will be more of a challenge, because it's not at my house!

Great job! I survived Thanksgiving and my parents from out-of-town through Saturday, had losses on my home scale each day. And then yesterday we hit the "no-more-turkey-please" wall and got pizza. This morning I was up .2 . Figures! Survive the hard part and then blow it with pizza.

Up 2 lbs. I'd blame it on Thanksgiving.. but it was an all week thing.
WW receptionist told me the week prior (when I maintained) that I might not be eating enough points with my running. So apparently I went out and ate too many extras
NSV was that I shaved 8 minutes (!) off of my 5k time from when I started racing in September. WW leader gave me 33 bravos- one for each minute of my time-- which totally cracked me up. She said to decorate my sneakers and anything else I bring with me when I run. I may stick a few on my ipod.

I was thinking about a few extra meetings over the next couple weeks, or staying through the power start meetings again. I've had two weeks of small gains and since I'm at the same weight where I've quit three times (because I hit what I felt were plateaus but were probably just fear and not comprehending that this is FOREVER...I will NEVER be able to eat all that I want to eat, so it's a choice of being a higher weight where I hat myself and feel ugly and am unhealthy, or sticking with WW and watching the things I eat and being careful for the rest of my life), I figured that some extra motivation would be good.

aw, we just got bravo stickers!




I'm back to where I was 11/3. If the trend continues I'll have to re-evaluate eating all points. Probably just a bit of lax tracking, though, so that's being changed now. I feel great, but I'm not stopping here this time. I don't feel great enough to accept this weight and size.

Thanks Jessie! We spent our long Thanksgiving weekend in Toronto again this year. It was lots of fun. I always think of you when we're in Canada. We did lots of walking -- and plenty of eating.

That's amazing. You rock! Isn't it great that you can still have your favorite things?

I think there are a few of us that need a "re-commitment ceremony" or somthing. I'm with you. I want to lose 10 pounds by the end of the year, which would put me back at Lifetime. I think I'll need to choose a more reasonable, achievable goal. WI is tomorrow, so I'll see where I'm at and go from there.

A "re-commitment ceremony" sounds like a good idea! How are things in MI? We are hoping to move back home next year. I agree, we need to choose more reasonable goals. I should be happy with losing the 1.6 I gained and then maintaining through the holidays.
