Bumbershoot- Congratulations on goal! What an enormous accomplishment.

Today marks 50 pounds gone for me! So happy to see that number. I've been looking forward to it! Now for my next short term goal....

Haha- well I am guilty of getting cocky- and it is becoming a problem. Today is my first day of the week and my goal for the week is to tighten up- I have been taking little bites of this and that and not counting them- My weight-loss, which was already pretty slow, is now REALLY slow. I have had tiny losses the past 2 weeks, (.2, .4)

The good thing is that I have been doing great with exercise. The weather has been so nice for jogging.

Congrats in reaching goal, bumbershoot! That is amazing! I have been maintaining since April. The only thing I can say is that is is really hard! Much harder than losing, I think. I am still working on the number of points I'm comfortable with. I know you eat all of your points, so you probably won't struggle as much.

I have missed you ladies! I am going to try to come in here more!

This is my first post here. Two years ago I went on WW and lost 50 pounds. I had about 15 more to lose but became very unmotivated. I maintained for over a year but in the past month or so I have gained 5-7 pounds. I'm not sure what is different. I am still active- running the Haunted Trails 5k this weekend and eating the same I have. Anyone else gone through this? I am 55, so I thought maybe hormones...might have an effect?

Yep - very much similar to my story. I started back about a month ago, being very careful with portions and that seems to be helping. I also seem to have a lower tolerance to fruit now, I am 62 and thought horomones would hopefully be out of the picture by now. But, maybe that never happens...

So I'm not expecting much from tonight's weigh in based on my scale this morning. I'm ok with it mainly b/c i know what I'm doing right and wrong. I know that I'm eating better overall, I know that I'm getting more activity and I know that I'm still making bad choices as well.

I have been going to an hour long spin class every Saturday since Labor Day and I love it! It's hard to get there during the week b/c the class is 30 minutes from my house and an hour from work, with home in between work and the gym. This week I've decided to commit to going to spin at least 1 day during the week, getting there for the 430 class so I'm home by 6 to be with my family. Yesterday was the day and I felt so good about being there. It was a different instructor than my Saturday class and a drastically different class as a result! Saturdays we do the RPM program by Les Mills. Yesterday was a freestyle class. I like RPM better. This instructor was hard core, had us doing things that I just don't like to be honest. Instead of doing the pushups, the hand claps, etc ON the handlebars, I just continued pedaling and kept my hands where they belonged. LOL I will say that I was a drenched, sweaty mess after that class. I worked HARD! I was so proud of myself and I really did push myself. I'm always a sweaty mess after Saturdays, but I was DRENCHED last night.

The point of all of that is this, I know that I'm moving in the right direction, even if the scale isn't showing it. I can see the difference in my legs, my husband commented on my butt, so I know the activity is working. The weight loss will come. I just wish there was a way of showing that for WW purposes. LOL I always feel a sense of defeat when the numbers don't change at all or enough when I get on that scale on Wednesday nights. But I'm trying not to let it bug me. I'm also going to start taking my measurements so that I have a tangible difference that I can look at and see and say "It's working."

I'm so glad I have this thread to vent and talk things out!!!

I hit my 10% today. I've actually been feeling a bit bleh over the whole thing because I know I need to get some kind of exercise in but I can't commit to anything. I can feel my motivation and momentum slowing down.

I'm down another 1.8 lbs this week. I'm on WW but I also doing low carb. I have been on program since March 2012 and I have lost 43.8 lbs, my goal is 60 lbs. I hope changing over to low carb will give me the break I need to continue.

YAY!! I have been at this since July 10. My 10% is 24.4 pounds and Im stuck at 14-15lbs lost and have been for 3 weeks now. I'm trying not to get down about it, but it's getting harder and harder not to. When I hit my 10%, I know it will be a huge sense of accomplishment. I so desperately want to hit that number....

I think my biggest thing now is getting mentally better at this whole thing.

I'm going to join you (or rejoin). This is my 4th time on WW. Did great the first time with meetings, bad the 2nd (online) bad the 3rd (meetings), but good the first 5 weeks this time (online). I had a baby 9 weeks ago and on trying to loose the last 20 of baby weight. I'm down 6 lbs so far and 2 lbs from my 10%.

eh24fan- We are on a similar trajectory- I started the second week in July also- and I have been stuck for the pat 3 weeks also. I have lost 6.5%. If we keep plugging away, we'll get there After I lose my 10% I only need to lose 1 more pound and I hit my other big goal- which is to have a BMI in the healthy range. That is what I am really striving for.

Bumbershoot- I can't wait to hear about the Tower of Terror 10miler!

Hi all -

I've been MIA...kids gave me a horrible cold and after 2 weeks, I'm just starting to feel better. It's awaful when a cold derails you, but food just didn't taste good, I was too tired most nights to even fix a decent meal, blah, blah, blah. But today is weigh in day...I haven't killed myself - just maintained over two weeks and now am back and getting organized.

Bumbershoot - Congrats on goal! Wahoo!

Looks like there have been some other good losses while I've been MIA.

Lynne

Actually now that you mention it, I haven't gotten sick since I've been doing WW. I'm sort of curious how that'll effect my weigh in should (ok WHEN...) I get sick. I typically nibble through the day when I've got a cold or whatever because I'm not usually hungry but know I have to keep my blood sugar from getting too low. Made that mistake last summer, I had what I think was viral and barely ate for 4 days and passed out, so I made myself eat some toast with jelly thinking that little sugar boost would work and it did. I went to the doctor the next day and they flipped out saying they had to do an EKG because "you lost consciousness and that's a big deal!!" and they wouldn't believe me that I knew what a low blood sugar felt like. So one emergency EKG later..they pricked my finger and went "Oh yeah...your sugar's low, you should probably eat" then they tried to tell me it was just allergies. Bull, allergies have never knocked me out like that and given me a fever too. Stupid urgent care.....*sigh* ok back on topic. Usually when I get sick I lose my appetite then once I start feeling better I want ridiculous heavy rich things like mashed potatoes and cheesecake.
