Red face Happy with 1st week's loss

It was an incredible 16 pounds. I have ALOT of weight to lose, but I'm totally thrilled with this. I love the ProPoints system, as I love to cook, and I can still do so, just making a few adjustments to the recipes. Last night we had chicken with cashewnuts and rice, nicer than a takeaway, and didn't take to long to make.
My daughter Hannah has also joined WW Online, so I now have the best slimming buddy possible.
Good luck to you all in your efforts, and for those who are off on their cruises this week, have a great time.

Just got back from an extended weekend in NJ and to my pleasant surprise, I have lost another half pound. I thought for sure I was going to gain. I recorded, and thought before I ate. It was really the drive back that I was bad.

Since my cruise in in 2 days & there's no hope of losing the weight in that time, I guess I'll just have to book another in a year or so so I can join this thread

Can I join in? I want to lose 90 pounds this year... with a goal of 50 gone by cruise date of Feb 23rd. I just started Cambridge on Monday. The cruise will be a great motivator to get at least 50 gone by the end of Feb 2013... but I will be far from done with my weight loss journey. Starting weight was ( I cannot BELIEVE I AM POSTING THIS ON THE INTERWEBS) 254 on Monday. The largest I have ever been.. including my pregnancies. For me it's not so much about dress sizes and looking cute.. while that might be an added bonus... it's about living longer and better. My mother had a massive stroke at 49 and I care for her every day. I will not follow in those footsteps/wheelchair tracks.

Now, that my serious intro is done, I promise I am funny, positive and only mildly insane. (already have my lists started for our cruise and FE gifts in production even though there is no one but me on the meets thread for the cruise date..lol)

Any reason to book another Disney cruise is a good reason!

I weigh more than that and am hoping to lose 30 pounds before my December cruise. After that I will just keep dieting - I think I'll have to book another cruise, maybe in 2014, just to give me a great incentive!!

Elaine, that is an excellent idea! You just gave me another reason to book another cruise! I should have added in my previous post that I am only 5'2" (62cm) so, 254 looks more like 300 on my short stature.

I am a bit worried about how I am going to view food by the time I get on the Magic on Feb 23rd... I hope I am not weeping with joy or making nom nom noises when dessert arrives.

It sounds like you are going to be successful because you have the right attitude. There will be great days and more challenging days. I look at pictures of me from my Nov. 2011 cruise, then my March 2012, and look at myself now. There is 45 lbs. lesser of me. The eating out is so much different then in March. During the cruise, I thought about all the wrong choices I was making, and now I just don't even want to make those wrong choices. Only you can put your mind to it and do it. My success has been do to recording everything going in my mouth, and dedication to exercise. I wish you the best, and I will be here if you need to share.

Hey CeCe, looks like you've made a start, it's down weight all the way from now on!! I think we probably do have about the same to lose, as I'm 5' 8''.
Yesterday was a really mixed day, it's my weighing day and I lost 6lbs last week. That makes 22lb total in two weeks and I am really pleased.
Then I went and picked up my sister, and her twin daughters, to take her to hospital for a day surgery on her knee. On the way we had to stop at Tesco to use the restrooms, I had been hit by my old enemy, IBD. It's a good thing Bryan had taken the day off, as I came home and crashed out for three hours. It's a good thing he likes to be active, he took the girls of to the local park and played football (soccer for my US friends) till they were exhausted too!! I woke up to the sound of a call from the hospital saying she was ready to pick up so I went to get her, bought her back to my house as she had to be with an adult for the first twenty four hours, then back to her house overnight. I'm not entirely sure what I ate, definitely Pizza, so today is a restart, tracking everything and needing to do extra exercise.

She's seems really well this morning so I've come home to sleep. Well, end of short novel, I wish you all the best of success this week.

Elaine

PS - A great way to keep your hands from the cookie jar, candy tin or whatever your poison is in the evening - hand made FE gifts.

All of you are so inspiring!

My cruise is 8/29/12, and I've lost 19 lbs for it. I'm now 5'9" and 161 lbs. I'd like to lose 17 more, but I'll settle for 5 more by the cruise.

My new clothes and swimsuits just arrived from Lands End (love end of summer sales!) and although my body is nowhere near perfect, it's nice to try them on and feel good about it. I love the idea of booking next years cruise for weight loss motivation. Great idea!

Hello- newbie here!

My daughter and I booked an Oct 10, 2013 cruise on the Dream three weeks ago. We are both quite overweight, and have just over a year to do something about it. In three weeks she's lost 12lbs and I've lost 11, by counting calories and *actually* going to the gym.

Thank you for this thread....I will be reading daily and checking in often! I would love to atleast be a size 10 by next October. Good luck everyone!

It is great to see so much chatter. Another successful week. I have changed my breakfast from raisin bran to 2 eggs whites fried in a light spray of olive oil, sprinkled with cinnamon, and a tablespoon of almond butter. This high protein meal keeps me going for the day. I was not a big protein eater, and this is one way that I am finding to increase the protein. The other is Greek Yogurt. Right now, I have 5 meals a day and generally I have some sort of protein in at least 4/5 if not 5/5.

Just got back from my nutrition class presented from my gym. It was a 8 week program that provided nutrition advice and weigh ins. I am happy to say that I had the 3rd highest weight loss over 8 weeks. And here I thought I was not doing that great. I lost 9 lbs. and my goal was 12 lbs.
