Sat WI: -2.4 lbs for a total of 45.6! I feel like I'm in the home stretch even though I have over 25 lbs to go. I've lost 25 lbs almost twice!
I can't wait to get to 50.
I hope you all have a great week

You are almost 2/3 of the way there! That's so great.

Hi
So after packing the pounds back on, it's time to buckle down and take them off. I moved a few months ago so I needed to find a new meeting place. I went to one tonight but I didn't like the time (5:45pm) and I wasn't thrilled with the leader. She had no oompf. I like oompf. That's what I need. She also didn't go through and recognize people's weight losses. I like that part and feel it's very motivated. Plus I find there is something just encouraging when you get to share that news with the other members. This meeting place was just down the road a few miles. There's another meeting place about 1/2 hour away and at a much better time. Can I just switch? Is it ok for me to pop into that meeting to check it out and see if I like it better? What is the protocol? LOL

Ok, so this morning was my first weigh in since I started tracking again. I did ok with tracking but definitely ate things I shouldn't have. BUT I was down 1.4 lbs today so here's to starting a new week! Total weight loss since I started is now 17.6. Here's to sticking to the plan!

Yes, you can go check out a different meeting. Just bring your membership info. If you're just wanting to stay for the meeting and not be weighed in, just let the receptionist know. (At least, that has been my experience.)

I think tracking is definitely key and your success proves it. Great job!

How close? What is your goal? Maybe you should go to meetings so that you can get lifetime when you reach your goal. And that is great about your mom. Is she doing it online also?

Use the eTools and track everything. I use it in the same browser that I use for my hotmail and the DIS, so when I click that little down arrow in the address bar, the link for eTools is staring me in my face and I go there before coming here or doing my email. It only takes a few minutes, especially once you get the hang of it.

I think the leader makes all the difference. Our first leader was ok, but I definitely felt like I was attending a meeting. The second leader (and the one we have stuck with) is amazing. She has a lot of energy and everyone really participates in the meeting. In fact, when she was away for several weeks and another leader came in, the meetings had a whole different feel, even though the same people were attending, so that just showed me that the leader really does set the tone. So I don't think there would be a problem with trying out different meetings and find the one that fits your personality and expectations.

Our leader's pic

Here is picture that was in our local paper from this weekend's open house at WW. It came from the Public Opinion newspaper but DIS won't let me put the link here. The lady on the left is our leader, Joni. The lady on the right is the one that has lost 255 pounds, Colleen. Colleen's husband is in the middle. The picture was taken while on their honeymoon in Peru.

Good Morning. New to WW, ending week 1 tomorrow. Would like to join in here to help me stay on track Have been lurking for awhile and finally took the plunge last week. I'm looking at my 45th bday in July and have at least 75lbs to lose. I have tried so many other "diets" with some success so I know I can take the weight off, but always.... ALWAYS put the weight back on. I have "survived" this first week with no problem... except DH broke my scale so I'm starting over with a new scale at tomorrow's weigh in. My biggest issue... I hate to exercise. I know it is a must, but my joints hurt so bad... I know that will improve with the weight coming off so I just need to take it one day at a time. Looking forward to getting to know ya!

I agree. Track Track Track. I use the points tracker on my phone which really helps too. I can't escape tracking-- it's everywhere I go. Also, I tend to snack at night, so I try to only do fruits/veggies for snacks at that time. Processed food / carbs / bad sugars at that time are no good for me.

Again, I agree! The leader DOES make a huge difference for me. I did not like my leader when I was at WW almost 20 years ago when I was 16. She didn't have "oomph" and was just fake and seemed like she didn't care about progress. Well, low and behold, she's not a leader anymore.

The leader I have now is AMAZING and I truly get upset when we have a sub because she is THAT good. She is so motivating and encouraging-- and has been since day 1 for me. She points out the successes so others can be inspired, and will work with you if you need help-- even offering up her personal email / cell to members if they need her.

She has so many success stories in the meetings I have been to-- I've never seen so many lifetimers in one spot. THAT'S a good leader.

You can switch to a different leader / time / location if need be. I started at one location but it wasn't convenient for me and I now go to another location that she is a leader at. It's pretty flexible. Find what works for you. Keep at it and you will get there!!
