Down .8, total off of 72.6.

My dd and I will be speaking at the event Saturday -- we are the mother / daughter pair. Don't know what we will say yet!

That is wonderful. You're an inspiration. At our meeting today, a woman who isn't normally in the class made a comment about maintenance. Our leader, who knew her from another class, asked how much she had lost before maintenance. 102 pounds! She looked amazing; I know you do, too.

That is very cool Debbie. I'm sure you'll have inspiring words.

I was down 0.4 at my WI today. I still have 12.8 pounds to go to get back to goal. (This isn't my first rodeo!) It is slow going -- lots of ups and downs on this trip. This is kind of embarrassing, but I'm right about where I was a year ago. (Before that I'd lost about 35 pounds.) I keep losing a few pounds and then gaining it back. Physically, I'm in a lot better shape and wearing 8s and 10s, so I'm pretty happy. While I'm not where I want to be -- and I'm getting tired of paying the monthly fee -- I know that if I wasn't going to my weekly meeting and at least tracking most of each week, I'd gain all that weight back.

Anyway, I just wanted to let those of you who are struggling know that you have lots of company. This is a tough club in which to be a member!

Very cool. I'm sure you'll think of something very inspirational.

I lost 1.4 lbs this week, I'm now at a 40 lbs total lost. I need to lose that additional 6 lbs to be back at my 46 lbs. It felt so good to be back on program and going to the gym plus a new year. I didn't go over my points this week and I ate at Bojangles, Cheesecake Factory and Pizza Hut. It just takes good planning and having a schedule for everything. I hope everyone has a good week!

I keep starting out each day tracking but I'm not quite making it through the entire day yet. I'm hoping that if I keep starting with good intentions I will finally push through. It's driving me crazy though.

Well I've managed to stay within points for 2 days in a row! I'm hoping I can hold out until I see results on the scale. That will help with the motivation (I hope!) Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Dd (30) and I (57) will be talking today at our WW Open House. Those of you who are inclined to pray, it would be greatly appreciated!

I figured out our total weigh loss this morning between the two of us -- 149.2 since last March. So close to being able to say we've lost 150, so I'll say we are "just shy of 150 between the two of us."

Good luck, Debbie! I know you will be great!

Is there anyone here who is an online member?

Praying. I'm sure you and dd will do great!

What an accomplishment!

Oh good! I thought I was the only one! I don't want to pay the fee forever, but I am a little nervous about maintaining on my own!

If you're at all willing to go to meetings, there are some people who join meetings when they are closing in on the end. Then they hit goal then Lifetime as a meeting member, so they get the perk of free meetings and the code for free etools. It does mean a weigh-in per month, but it's free as long as you're in the Lifetime zone.

I know myself, and know that I will always need to do something official; all I ever managed to do on my own was gain, LOL. So I know that I would do that, if I had done online, so I could have the support and official stuff and have it for free.


Together, DH and I have lost 98 lbs so far. Pretty neat. I cannot believe that I'm starting to close in on the end-of-losing. And it seems that when I'm smaller I look taller. I've had 3 people tell me that I look much taller than 5'3", and those same people have been really weirded out to know that I'm still ~20 lbs above the max WW weight for my height. Now, this is not a *problem*, to have people saying this to me, LOL...but it's confusing! I'm just barely coming out of official "plus" sizes!



Did you guys see the "success" quote on WW Facebook? "Success will never be a big step in the future; Success is a small step taken just NOW." I love that. I'm so glad I took the small step of joining last February, after growing so sick of myself and my lack of health and my ankles swelling immensely while at Disney/Universal, and being in pain with every single step I took.... I'm so glad to know I have ankle-bones now. I really wasn't sure I had them anymore!

And I'm really looking forward to being in some pictures this trip!


That has reminded me...for those who still might not want to be in pictures, get in pictures! Don't be mean to yourself; you deserve to be in the pictures. Get in the pictures (anyone else have the 2005 planning video with Erin and Luke, etc? I'm reminding myself of "get in the photo....."). You'll be glad later.

Dd and I did our little chat yesterday. Really turned out to be much more relaxed than I anticipated. About fifteen people and we sat in chairs facing them. Actually, I had more I wanted to say when our leader stepped in and opened the floor to questions.

I met a lady at the open house who was amazed at our "before" pictures. She was very friendly so I asked her if she was a WW member. She said, "Oh yes, I'm an old-timer around here." Of course that begs the question of how long she's been a member. "I've been a member since 1963, that would be 50 years. I've lead meetings all over this county and it is just such fun to come to open houses like this one and see new faces." I said, "Isn't WW celebrating 50 years this year?" And she said. "Yes indeed. I was one of the very first members." Wow, I felt like I met a celebrity! (And this lady did not look her age, I'm guessing she had to be about 70, but looked more like 55.)

I got a hand massage, mini-makeover, and hair consult while I was there. I never wear makeup (didn't like it in high school and never saw any sense in plastering the stuff all over my perpetually oily Italian skin) and dh did not even notice when I got home. Geesh!

Dd is very close now to the top number of the recommended weight so she will be setting a goal soon. Our leader asked her (and me) to consider working for WW and this is something dd has wanted to do almost since she joined. I figure I've still got at least 50 pounds to go before talking about a goal weight. But dd is so much closer to Lifetime and I could see her working for WW before the year is out.

We were about 15 pounds apart when we started but she is six inches taller than me. It's not that I'm overweight, I'm just too short, lol.

One more thing about the Open House yesterday.

Someone I met there told me she is going to WDW in February. Well, of course, that got me chatting away. She said she was going on a business trip and her husband was going to come for an additional three days they added on. I said, "So, you'll be at Coronado Springs then." She said yes, but wanted to know how I would know that. I told her it was the conference resort. Then she said she planned to walk to Epcot since it was so close. Ok, that's all a DISser has to hear, isn't it???

I asked her if she had made any ADRs, she had no idea what they are. She then said that for their extra three days they were staying at a beach-something. Beach Club? Oh, yes, that's it. I told her that from there she could definitely walk to Epcot, as well as DHS. Then I told her that they'd be seeing the new Fantaslyand expansion in the Magic Kingdom and she said, "What's Fantasyland?" Oh my!

Her eyes were glazing over so I knew she wasn't really interested in advice about planning her trip. She'll probably be one of those people that come back and say how they didn't like Disney because they couldn't get into restaurants and the lines were too long and there wasn't anything to do.
