Yay for the great WIs today.

Lovethattink -- I never in my life saw size 8 and really don't expect to now that I am losing weight. I went from kids clothes to junior 11/12 and then started "grown up" sizes in 14. I'm excited to finally be wearing a 16 again!

Ah, up .4. That's OK though, I felt like a puffball the entire week long. And I stayed off the scale at home because of it; I don't like being upset with the scale so I just did the program and tried to drink more water.

Hormones were the culprit as was increasing the distance of my jogging. Increasing distance really keeps the waterweight on. And I'm changing the what and when aspect of eating, to try to regulate the need for the bathroom after I start my jog. So it's all in flux right now. Keep calm and carry on is my motto right now!

Sounds like you're doing some really positive things, Molly, glad the 0.4 didn't throw you too much. In the long run the healthy things you're doing will have the benefits you're looking for. Good for you!

I don't know what's going on with me -- I weigh every morning and I have seen a steady climb since Tuesday's WI - today I am 3 lbs up from Tuesday. I'm so close to being at my next self-set goal and I just can't believe I'm going up. Yesterday was the only day I've eaten over my daily points since Tuesday. I'm hoping that somehow it is all water-weight (although at 57 that isn't a cyclical thing for me any more) and will disappear by Tuesday.

I did my official I'm back on track wi yesterday. Was up .8 but I'm ok with that since its been 3 weeks since my last one. It's the last day of spring break here and I'm feeling pretty lazy so I'm thinking grocery shopping may not happen today! I have tomorrow's lunch planned and then it's aquafit after work so will probably plan the rest of the week tomorrow night.

Are you getting in the "good health guidelines" or "healthy checks" (basically the same things)? Your oils, your dairy or alternatives, your fruits and veggies? I find the oils to be SO important to keep the tum happy. (and hair, skin, and nails as well)

Are you only eating your Daily points? If so, maybe you could experiment with eating some Weekly and/or some Activity points? Not everyone can, not everyone wants to, not everyone needs to, but then there are others (me) who can (lose while eating them all), wants to, and NEEDS to, or they'll go off program (like I did the other 3 times I attempted WW). For people like me, going with only the Daily points feels like deprivation, which can do bad things to some peoples' heads.

It's worth thinking about, if you're just doing the Dailies right now! And especially if you're new...are you new? I'm sorry it takes a LONG time for me to start remembering people. (embarrassing) Anyway, especially IF you are new to WW it's easier to try something like that, rather than waiting. It's scary to add points in at any time, but especially when you've been doing it for awhile.
I'm new I started WW last month. I think that's my problem, I'm trying not to eat my Activity Points, and I only get 26 "regular" points per day. I work out about an hour to 1 1/2 hrs each day, so I guess I'm not getting in enough food with the workouts. Thanks for the support everyone!!

Oh definitely, with 1.5 hours every day? Well I can't say for sure it'll work for you, but for me, I definitely need to fuel my workouts with APs. Of course that doesn't come out with strong authority since I had a .4 gain, LOL, but I know the reasons.

If you're anything like me, if you start fueling your workouts with some APs you might see more energy in those workouts. I was so low-energy for even my elliptical workouts before I started eating the APs. But you've got to try it for yourself. Remember that even though we get maintenance points, this is a change for *life*, and you want to make it livable for your own self!




Puffball update, I can see ankle bones again. Whew!

Ok, ladies, it's not looking good--help me through the last few days of my week. Wednesday is my WI and I've only got 8 weeklies left--I usually have at least 20 left at the end of the week. I've got 4 pts + 4 APs left for supper! Dh and I actually have a date this evening, we are going to a live taping of a local current affairs/sketch comedy show, and will be grabbing something quick for supper after work on the way.

It has been a heck of a week, really stressful (too many calls to the principal of my kid's school, it's gotten ugly). I have really resisted the urge to stress eat, but I have been pretty generous with myself within the program. Got in 4 day of dog-walking (which is my activity at this point--way better than NO activity beyond nagging the kids to walk the dog, which was the way it was until this month). But, here I am with 8 weeklies left (and I'd hate to reach zero weeklies), not enough for supper out, and more food than any week since I started at the beginning of Feb. I was really hoping to see another pound off on Wednesday, was hoping to reach 10 lbs last week but only made it to 9 total so far.

Argh.

Have you tried doing "simply filling" (I think that's what it's called, where you only eat power foods with a green triangle). There
is a ton of things you can eat that will satisfy you without going over points.
