Just checking in. Cannot believe how quickly this pregnancy has gone. My c-section is scheduled in less than 2 weeks! I have only gained 24 lbs this pregnancy!!!!!!!! Compared to the 50 lbs I normally gain I consider that a success. Well not too much longer and I will be able to jump back in with both feet! Have a great weekend everyone.

Morning all -

Yesterday was a hard day...didn't have my usual protein breakfast which set me up for hunger the rest of the day. I went into my extra points, but they're what they are there for, right? I did manage an hour at the gym on the treadmill and recumbent bike, though yesterday.

Today I missed the gym this morning, but did have my protein breakfast. I think I'm coming down with the horrible cold the rest of my family had. Blech. I'll try to wash it away with lots of water today.

Zootycoon - Awesome job on the loss!

NC State - Wow, only up 2.8 and on a cruise? I've never been on a cruise, but I understand there is always lots of food. Great job.

LockShockBarrel - Woo, hoo! Great job on the loss. And you got your 25 lb. charm? Wahoo!

Superme80 - I'm so impressed...with your baby's birth 2 weeks away, and you are already thinking about jumping back in.

Bumbleshoot - I like your quote about lack of guilt when eating food making it taste better. I may steal that!

Okay, off to work. Have a great day everyone!

Wow, that's amazing. (The 24 lbs I mean.) I was surprised when I found out that you can't be in WW if you are pregnant. Seems to me it would be a good thing. Oh well. Let us know when your baby is born. Praying for your delivery to go well. Can't wait to hear what your weight loss is afterward. I bet you are down at least 15 lbs.

copied/paraphased from my trip&life journal....


Called today's weight GOAL! Since I was only .2 over what I had originally thought would be goal, this wasn't a hardship. I was going to "call it" no matter what it was, though, because I can't be in losing mode with the TOT run and then continued training for the Half in January. Too fainty!

So now starts the tough road down a place I've never walked before. I've never maintained. Went from growing as a child to battling my body as a teen, always trying to hit some perfect weight that I:

1. could never attain while eating like I was eating and/or
2. might never have attained anyway given my body type!


That went into adulthood and all the way through. This is truly the FIRST time I have ever tried to stay one weight or size.

I'm helping myself by buying a bunch of clothes in this size, and by getting rid of the bigger clothes. Because I have thrown down a bunch of money, it behooves me to not lose another size, at least for a matter of months, because this weight loss is getting financially draining!

If there are any maintainers out there, give me some words of advice!

I was really hoping that Jessica Simpsons' second pregnancy would be a wake-up call to WW that there are women out there who NEED some sort of program. You KNOW she had her special celebrity WW leader available to take her calls and answer questions, and to help her with her diet. You just know it. So why can't we?


soapbox alert!!!!!

The second time I went through WW I had done it about a year, had good results, then Dh and I got married. Went on the honeymoon a week later, came back a week after that, and I was pregnant. And I started gaining immediately. I'm the same body type as Ms Simpson, we're the same height, and we both GAIN with babies (well, I only know the one pregnancy, but still). At least she enjoyed herself with Maxwell; I was a miserable walking ball of heartburn the whole time.

The moment I knew I was pregnant I knew I had lost my whole group of friends. All of 'em! DH had to go to meetings alone, which isn't fun for him at all. And he had to do it all alone, because I wasn't strong enough to keep eating well. Of course, that was assuming we were already eating well, which we weren't, because that's when you had to count points for fruits and veggies! Cookie vs fruit? Fruit lost EVERY time in our household. We made it solely calories-based, basically, and we lost but learned *nothing*. So I had nothing to fall back on, no real knowledge, and I consoled myself like crazy with food, after losing my whole group of weekly friends.

Weight is such a huge issue when pregnant; whether it's a real issue or just a fear-based ones on the part of doctors and midwives it doesn't matter. It still hits us and changes the way we are cared for.

I think that WW should have a supplemental "let's eat right for the pregnancy" program. They say talk to your doctor. Most MDs have had ONE, maybe two, nutrition courses for the entire time they were in school. And they almost certainly weren't pregnancy-nutrition courses. They know less than most of us who have done WW and taken it seriously for a year or so! See the doctors, pshaw. Even my midwives, who acted like they knew something, could only tell me what NOT to eat. When I asked what TO eat? Nothing. They had a big old nothing to tell me. How much to eat? Silence. HOW to walk when my knees lost the ability to hold me once the Relaxin hormone hit when I was only 4 months along? They thought I was making excuses. (I had stellar care, let me tell you, LOL...my motto became "friends don't let friends choose birth attendants WHILE pregnant" because some bad choices can be made once you're already super-hormonal!)

At this point, if I were to become pregnant (hope hope hope), I would have a much better knowledge base on how to eat, what TO eat, and how much extra to eat (nowhere near as much as my stomach kept telling me!). And that's because I paid attention this time. But I still think WW needs to have an offshoot program for people who become pregnant while doing WW, to help them keep their gains under control OR at the very least give them some guidance on how to eat. Because there's almost no other place to get it.

Not there yet, but YAY YAY YAY for YOU making goal! Sounds like you have a great plan for the next several months (years?). Congratulations!

Bumbershoot - congrats on goal! As far as maintaining, I've only been doing it since mid January. I'm still trying to figure out the exact balance because I'm not consistently active. But basically, keep following the program and tracking, & I'm sure you'll do great! It's a lifestyle, not a diet so you can't quit doing what you've been doing or the weight will come back.

As far as pregnancy, I dunno. They don't want to be liable in the event that something happens. Our society is such that if something happens to a baby, a parent may sue - and how could you possibly prove no correlation between WW & baby's health? We've seen studies that disprove any link between vaccinations and autism, yet people are still scared of vaccinating their kids. I just don't trust people to not sue WW. It could put them out of business.

Congratulations on goal, Bumbershoot! What an amazing feat!!! Some days it seems completely out of reach for me, so seeing you accomplish this gives me (and I assume all of us here) HOPE!

I lost my cruise gain this week! I was down 2.6 lbs by going low carb and it worked. It worked so well I think I will continue for another week. I think that's what my body was needing a "change" of habit.

Last night I was down .2 ugh but i know WHY and that's the important part. I have gotten a little too free with my eating and not tracking the way I should be. I haven't been eating well and the scale is showing it. Time to get back to better choices!!!

That's actually sort of funny because I lost exactly the same amount and have been having exactly the same issue. I find that since I eat pretty much the same stuff all the time, I know how many points it all is BUT I haven't been adding it all up in my head the right away so back to tracking everything.
