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.
I totally agree. My thought is that I would experiment with this starting today and then thru the month of January. And not be inflexible either, if have a few days in there where my body just needs to dip in to the weeklies, I would definitly do that. For me, if I get to black and white with myself, that is when I fail.

Smile Hello

Hi I am new to this board so I thought I would introduce myself. My name is Shana and I joined WW online in November with a starting weight of 252lbs. I am down 14lbs so far but have many more to go. I love food and I am a stress eater. Too make matters more challenging, I love to craft and read - neither of which counts as exercise. LOL. My Mom did her first triathlon at 54 years and since has travelled around the world doing iron men, triathlons, and marathons. I know she is concerned about my weight and I wanted to take the kids to Disney, (we live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada), so I made her a deal. I will train for a half marathon -walking of course! - if she comes to walk with me and helps pay for flights. Goal is the Tinkerbell half marathon in January 2014. I turn 40 in September this year and I am hoping to be under 200lbs. I am looking for motivation anywhere I can get it because although I do enjoy walking - it is so time consuming and I would much rather scrapbook or make cards. I am hoping someone out there feels like I do! Thanks for listening!

Glad to have you join us! It's great that you are training for the half-marathon. What a great goal to have and reward to get.

I started in March at 257. I'm down 71.8 lbs and the only exercise I get is walking the dog. (And I haven't done that for over a week with all the snow.)

Ok, weekly weigh in report. Down (that there is enough to be happy about after my five-day "it's Christmas" feast) 1 lb. A whole pound! I was shocked as my scale here only gave me .2 lb. 71.8 total. I'm happy! What a great way to start 2013. I never dreamed a year ago that there would be this change in me. I had given up losing weight and decided I was just destined to be a plus-size gal. Then the doctor threatened to increase my bp meds and my daughter joined WW, and the rest is history. And history is where those pounds are going to stay.

Hello everyone! Just joined Weight Watchers last week - weighed in at 267.8 - eek! But I don't want to obsess over the number, I want to focus on living a healthier lifestyle.

I used to do a bunch of 5Ks and would love to get back in that mode. Heck, I would really love to do the WDW half marathon at some point!

Look forward to getting healthier with all of you!

Congrats, Debbie! All of our pounds are history!

I've been MIA for a little while. I actually stopped tracking 3 weeks ago when I was sick, and with all the stress that was going on, I needed it. I know I have gained, but that gain is from all the Holiday parties we had. But I did not stop exercising. We actually walked a lot during our time off.

I am ready to get back to tracking. I started planing my week already. And, I will WI next Wednesday to see the damage. Last time I had my WI, I was 212.4 pounds, so at 23 pounds lost.

Have a good week everyone! Happy new year!

First weigh in of New Year last night - lost 1.2 lbs.! I was really surprised as I slacked off tracking the last 2 days of my week and I splurged a little on munchies New Years Eve. So I am very happy with that. My "restart" weight was 161.2 so now at 160. For reference I am 5' 1" and my "Lifetime" weight which I originally hit 10 years ago (before I got pregnant with 1st child) was 125 so I have alot of work to do!! I've joined and quit WW several times over those 10years and I'm at my heaviest ever (except for when I was pregnant). I have been working out 2-3 times a week most of that time....but never could get a grip on my eating. I feel like I finally have the motivation / strength to power through and get back to goal this time and am focused on tracking my food since that has always been the missing piece of the puzzle for me. Goal for this new week is to track EVERY day (especially weekends when I tend to let up), and to get up every morning and get on my treadmill. So far I am 2 for 2!!

Sounds like you're on your way Tammy. I know that when I track, I will see a good result. Over the Christmas holiday week, I tracked every day -- it was "non-negotiable tracking" and lost 2.2. During the week of New Year's Day, we went skiing, I ate too much, and gained 2 pounds back (at least the whole holiday was a net loss).

Anyway, I'm telling myself that tracking is non-negotiable this week. Hopefully I'll do as well as you!

ETA: So you are only 16 lbs from goal and still losing 2+ lbs per week? Wowza. Have you talked to your leader about approaching goal yet?

DH update: He had an appointment with his endocrinologist, who he sees for treatment of a pituitary tumor and because he was originally diagnosed with type 2 (which was how we learned about the prolactinoma, when we asked the doc if he would check DH's hormone levels).

All of the lab results like cholesterol continue to go down appropriately (or up, in the case of HDL). A few are still higher than normal, but lower than last time.

He's ecstatic with DH's weight loss, and even though DH has a lot left to go, said that even if DH maintained over the next year he would be happy. The doc seems to understand Robert's metabolism, and of course the pituitary thing makes things slow-going.

And best? The doc says there are absolutely NO signs that DH still has type 2 *at all*. This is SO cool.

Of course, he forgot to include the prolactin in the lab, so we'll get an update on that (he's in his 3rd year of treatment for it...it takes a LONG time) by phone in a few days.

Yay for DH!

Oh, and the doctor's scale, which has caused emotional trauma for DH before, went the other way this time, and showed a 40lb loss.

Woo! It's funny how we can gain and lose weight on the way to weigh-in.

I, too, never could have guessed that I would be so much smaller just a year later. I was still very much in denial a year ago.

And just the other day I was able to pull out some pictures that I knew I had laying around, like the Chef Mickey picture from September 2011, and actually look at myself. Quite a difference from our Goofy's Kitchen photos from October of 2012!

Congratulations for joining!!!!! That's funny about crafting and reading. Nice thing about crafting, though, is that it's hard to eat while doing that. I find knitting to be helpful to keep the hands out of food.

You could get an ebook reader and walk on a treadmill...get two things done at once!

Good luck at weigh in! Knowledge is power, when it comes to weight loss.

Thanks! Yes, I honestly am doing much better at this point than I expected. I was a little afraid of the last 20 pounds! I am an online member, so I need to do more research about approaching goal.
