We're having a gentle Christmas eve snow tonight. I'm going to try going for a run in the morning to get a good start on my day.

Merry Christmas!
We are at WDW, so it's challenging. Park food isn't conducive to weight loss. I have promised myself to eat something green every day. Today it was a wonderful fresh grilled tuna salad at Yak & Yeti for lunch.

Robin, You are a better woman than I. I think I'd count mint chocolate chip ice cream from the Main Street ice cream shop as a "green." I hope you're having lots of fun. Even though there was a cold snap through Florida, it's way colder up here in Michigan and your Wisconsin.

Ok, it's time for me to make a come back. I was doing well from July until about October and then school got too stressful and I fell off. I haven't gained all the weight back and am still down about 15 lbs of the 25 that I had lost.

With the holidays I've eaten so much junk that I just feel crappy all the time. Soooo I'm ready to go again and have the time to get organized and start over. I have to say that I am more than ready.

I'm so glad that this group is here for me to jump in and get moving again when I need to!

You sound just like me. I fell off the wagon in October and I am struggling to get back into it. The good thing is that my weight has stayed pretty consistent and I haven't gained anything more than a pound. I just need to find my motivation again.

I know. The fact that I feel so blah is what is getting me going again. So I'm going through all these before and after pics to give me motivation. I know I can do it, it is just a matter of actually doing it. I'm going to work on my game plan today and start either tomorrow or next week.

Winter is hard for me because I have always eaten a ton of pasta and heavier foods. I've got to find some new recipes that are quick and that I enjoy to replace all the carbs.

I just need to learn how to keep up with the tracking. I track until dinner and then it becomes a free for all. I need to prevent that and stop sitting on butt after my son goes to bed and do projects around the house or workout.

Gained a couple pounds over Christmas because I was enjoying too much Disney Dining.

But I have a goal and time frame. I think they are very reasonable. 15 pounds by May 17th, the hopeful start of SWW. I have a very petite body frame and I'm pretty short, so those 15 pounds should show big results.

I haven't tracked since before Thanksgiving. I just haven't been motivated. But after seeing my picture in Christmas pictures, my motivation is back.

Can I join the group? Went back to a WW meeting last night for first time in a very long time. I had done nothing for about the last 3 months (no exercise and eating whatever I wanted) and I packed it on as a result! I have 36.2 to lose to get back to my original WW lifetime weight that i reached 10 years ago! But my first goal is 15 lbs by DH and I's adults only trip back to the World at end of February!! Glad to have found this thread as I can use some new motivating tips / recipes / foods to try etc.!!

Can I join you all? I've done WW before, but not consistently since before PointsPlus. Can someone tell me what is different with this WW 360 program?

I'm now over 300 pounds and miserable I just love food.

My question exactly. I am guessing that 360 is similar to pts plus because they are not about to change the points system especially since all the packaging on the prepared foods is different. I stuck to the old pts system and incorporated the wendie plan and lost quite a lot(30)but now I put on 25 of it and I really want to find a way to KEEP it off not just lose.

The new 360 program is the same as Points Plus as far as your daily points totals and the extra 49 weekly pts. From what I saw i think the "360" is about focusing on all the other areas (not just the food) that we can make little changes in our lives to promote weight loss.

Today I decided it is time to end the holiday eating and get back to sticking to the points. (I've been tracking but I'm using the weekly points, which I never do). So, after having a hot fudge sundae (which truth be told, I didn't enjoy), it is back to 26 points a day and lots of fruit. Weigh in is Tuesday, Jan. 1 and I want to start the year off still being at my Christmas goal of 70 lbs off.

Howdy gang!

I had my weigh in this morning and was down 1 more pound for a total of 19.8. I had hoped to hit 20 today but missed it by thismuch. I have been steadily, but slowly, losing since I started on September 29th. I am pleased with my progress but honestly, I think I need to tighten up my food plan a bit. I've had a short term goal for awhile to hit 199 by January 31st and that's a little less than 9 pounds from here.

Each week I use all my daily, weekly, and activity points. I can't help but think that if I would ease up on the weekly points, I'd hit my mini-goal.

So my new plan is to leave the weekly points alone. I'll rely on my daily points and activity points only and have more fruits and veggies during snack times, which I should be doing anyway!

I just wanted to share.

That is all.

So true! I was looking at my tracker last night, and was going back into December for whatever reason. "Robert, what were we doing in early December? Why did I eat 56 points on the 1st and 66 on the 2nd?" Oh yes. Disneyland.

Wow to both of you, that's impressive! Whenever I quit I end up gaining it all back plus more.

Would it work for you to pre-track dessert and maybe a post-dinner snack? That way your foods are allowed and accounted for?

The 360 program isn't different; they just added little bits to it. PointsPlus (and some parts of 360 add-ons) is my favorite program so far. I did WW in 2000, 2002/3, and 2004/5, and I *thought* that 2000 was my fave program, but I was wrong. I adore PP.

I've been doing this since Feb, and I wanted to let you know that although less food goes over my tongue, my taste buds appreciate the food MORE. So I'm actually getting MORE enjoyment from my food than I was before. I don't know if that helps at all, but it's been interesting for me to notice.

It's also good to know, probably, that depending on your height and age (with that username I'm assuming you are female) you will be starting with a really solid amount of points. With my experience, I like to recommend starting the program using those Weekly points along with your Daily points, and even Activity points if you are calculating them carefully...if you lose weight with all those points, then YAY! It's not as painful to start. And then if at some point you find you have to taper down on the Activity or Weekly, it's still not as painful. Might as well start like that, right?

And lastly, DH started at well over 300, and despite him (male, just under 6') getting the max number of points you can get on Points Plus, he still lost while eating all of them. And still lost using some Weeklies. I should mention that he doesn't lose quickly, he doesn't lose (as Charles Barkley says) "like a man", so if he can do it, others can too.

From my experience, if you're open to a suggestion, can I give you the thought to pick a number of weeks you're going to do this, and then do it for that time? I personally like a 4 week period to experiment like that. That gets you over the temp weight loss caused by simply not having quite as much bulk in the system being digested, and should, assuming you are a female with a cycle, take you past "that time" and any possible change in weight you experience with that.

DH hit 35 lbs lost today! Oh I'm so happy for him. He hit the 30 mark in *August*. And he has been on the program this whole time, though he recently realized that maybe he has forgotten some things when he tracks at night, so he's working to track AS he eats instead of later. And I noticed he was using the "generic" foods in the online tracker, instead of using the exact nutrition info for what he was eating. So that could be changing the actual points he was eating, vs what he was writing down, as well.

Anyway, after all that time of little bounces up and down inside those 5 lbs, he smashed through! He is my inspiration.


The sad thing is that I wasn't there! He went to an earlier meeting this morning so he could get an acupuncture appt in while DS and I went to the normal meeting, so I wasn't there. Seems we keep celebrating our big milestones either away from our normal meeting (like in Phoenix or Vancouver) or away from each other. Kinda weird.

Yay for him!
