(Of course, if they stick with 26 points, they're going to see fantastic first week results. That's not sustainable, however.)
The friend that needs to lose the most, GAINED in her first week. Due to her work schedule, breakfast is at 4:00 a.m., lunch at 10:00 and dinner at 5:00. She said that by the time she was finished lunch, all her points were used up for the day. I suggested she try what another lady in our group is doing -- her "day" starts with dinner, then breakfast, then lunch. Instead of midnight to midnight, she's doing 5:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. as a day. My friend is going to talk to her leader about that today.

What is it that you were looking for? Maybe one of us can help with something specific.

But I do what Keahgirl said. Find something most like what I ate and track that. I love cheesesteak subs from our local place. Of course that's not on the tracker. But cheesesteak subs from some national chains are on there, so I go to the chain's website and read about their sub and look at pictures if possible. Once I find a sub that matches pretty much with what I ate, I use the tracker info for that sub as my points. Might not be exact, but it is close enough.

Ok, so last night I had a hamburger, fries, mac & cheese and some brie with a baguette. I ate the whole hamburger, but I only had a few bites of all the other stuff. I left a lot of stuff on my plate and didn't bring anything home because I don't want it in my house. lol

So I broke my dinner down like this:
Brie 1 oz. - 3
mac n cheese 3 oz - 3
burger - 12
small fries - 6
diet soda - 0

That was the best I could come up with. What do you think?

Could be right! Just make sure you are tracking enough for a burger. Depending on how large, how fatty the meat, and what was on it, restaurant burgers can be pretty high in points. Also, if you ate part of the baguette, you left that off.

Looks good to me except I think you missed the baguette.

Ok so I decided to try WW because I have 20 stubborn pounds to lose. So far I have 2.2 in about 2 weeks. I was an unbeliever but so far so good! I feel like I am eating healthier & exercising more regularly. 17.8 to go before my trip in June!

"But"? Did you say "But"? Our leader wouldn't settle for that. No "buts" allowed. You are almost to 50 lbs! That's not a "but" -- that's an Awesome, Amazing, Terrific, Wonderful . . . you get the idea.

Welcome! Good luck on your half marathon training! I am aiming for a 5K to start. I've never done any running whatsoever, so it is an experience just to train for it!

Thanks, Debbie!

Yes. What she said. 47.8 is fantastic!

Congratulations! You are seriously in the home stretch! How are friends and family dealing with it?

SO true.

My leader lost 42 pounds (on her 10th time through WW) to get to her goal, and that 42 pounds is just as important as my 60+ so far, or as much as DH will lose to hit goal (WW goal will mean a 200 lb loss), or someone else's FIVE pound loss! WW simply requires that you are 5 or more pounds above the WW weight for you, so someone who was forward-thinking enough to catch it at 5 or 10 or 40, etc deserves kudos just as much as Keahgirl, or DH will, or the woman interviewed in People magazine who lost over 300 (and she goes to my center and teaches Zumba at my YMCA)!

And R's dil M (30) also joined, she has about 20 to lose. I just don't understand why R only has 26 points. Does this seem odd to anyone else?
I hit 26 points when I was still in the 180s. I was 42 at the time I hit 26 points, I'm 5'3", and I'm shooting for 135 (but the WW range for me can go into the 110s) so I still had around 50 to go (but if I shoot for lower then it will be even more on that #). So I'm not surprised at all.

That said, I eat WAY more than 26 points per day average, since I love my Weeklies and live for my APs, so the 26 point thing doesn't actually change much for me, LOL.



OK I was trying to be really specific, but, alas, when I hit 26 points was when our meeting location was being changed over to the new style, we were in an empty office space next door to our normal space, and for whatever reason no one could run a cord through the wall to have internet access, and it was all being done by hand. And no one actually calculated that out for me, so it's not written on my trackers. So I can't be specific. But I know that I hit the mark in the 180s, and probably in the higher 180s.

My family is amazing. My parents are both doing this with me, which is great. When I went back home for Christmas, everyone was so proud and so supportive.
