My dr. said working out is good if something is just coming on, as long as you stay extra-hydrated. However, if your sickness makes you feel like you have no energy, that's your body's signal to rest and heal.
I felt like something was coming on this morning, sore throat and headache, so I drank extra fluids, took zinc, and hit the gym. I swear by zinc at the very beginning of a cold, but once you really feel crummy, I think fluids and rest are the way to go. Have some chicken soup, and try to drink at least 8 oz. of something every hour you are awake!

Hi everyone
I have been on this thread in the past, but never really stuck around. I am hoping this time will be different!

I just had a new baby on December 1st and find myself weighing more than I ever have in my life. So I rejoined WW last Thursday and plan on getting my weight in control. I hope getting back on this thread will also make that happen! I am on the Dis more now that we are planning a trip in the fall...so I have no excuse to make an effort to check in here and get inspired by all of you!

I really have no big goal rather I am going to start with my first 5%...which is 11 pounds.

I am looking forward to this year!

Welcome back, and congrats on your little guy. A 5% start is a great goal. Little by little, and next thing you know, it's fall and you're in great shape for your trip.

Hi peeps! I'll do my first weigh in for my base weight tomorrow morning! I meant to do it this morning and totally forgot. I decided to weigh in on Mondays to try to make myself do better on the weekends!

Hey, PD, good to see you here. I'm taking some friends to dinner Thursday night and weighing in on Friday. That should have the same effect, right?

Hello, hello, nervously peeks head round door,
Yip I'm back, feeling a bit guilty for not visiting as much as I should have.
Anyway quick recap , made my goal of 50 pounds to disney last year, ended up losing 82 pounds altogether. Got my weight to a place where I was comfortable.
Went to Disney and put on 12 pounds In a fortnight , yeah 12 pounds.
Lost 8 pounds of that before Christmas and then ate more than any sane person would.
I haven't as yet done my weigh in cause I want at least 2 weeks in the gym to take the rough edges off first.
So my new plan is to lose 14 pounds before I go back to disney in August.

Not sure if this will work but here's a before and what I look like today.

Amazing progress! You should be so proud of yourself! You look like a different person (in a good way, of course). Any big secret to your success? That's about the same amount as I lost as well. For me, Weight Watchers was the key. It's really the only thing that's worked for me. I've tried counting calories/fat/carbs, but those numbers get too big to keep track of. WW points only go up into the 30's, so it is easier for me to do. And of course exercise as well. But I abhor exercise; I wish I was a gym rat who loved working out, but I'm not. So it is a constant struggle to keep myself motivated to work out. But I still manage to drag my lazy butt to the gym 4-5 times a week, because I know I have to do that to lose and keep the weight off.

I had a good week, and I'm cautiously optimistic about my weigh in tomorrow morning. I followed the WW plan to a "T", and I've been to the gym every day this week. This is my first week back on plan since before Thanksgiving, and I REALLY need a good number tomorrow to set my mind at ease. It'll be a bit of a letdown if I didn't lose something, anything, this week.

Here's hoping for a bunch of good numbers from everybody tomorrow!

Hello Peeps! Hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine was up and down. Friday I weighed in for the first time -- I was -2.2! Yay!

But then it was downhill from there. The Packers lost on Saturday. Booooo!

And then on Sunday we went to Costco and Kohl's since my wife had a 30% off coupon and a gift card she got from some coworkers. She bought a few things, and as we were heading to the checkout, she asked if I wanted or needed anything. At first I said no, then I changed my mind and said I'd look at the clearance racks (I'm a cheap-skate) for a sweater or two for work. I found a couple I liked and tried them on. They didn't fit... A year and a half ago, I was comfortably wearing size small. Now mediums don't look good. So depressing! It literally ruined the rest of my day and weekend. I'm still down about it today. I know I shouldn't let it get to me, but I take things like that really hard. I have a closet full of clothes that either don't fit or just don't look good, and I can't find anything at the store that looks good either. I guess what they say is true - ignorance is bliss. If I hadn't tried on those sweaters, I probably would be fine today. But that just brought all of those old "I'm just a fatso and I always will be" feelings rushing back again. UGH!!!

Ok, enough of my pity party. Time to use this as motivation to keep pushing forward. Onward and upward!
