May I join your group?

My name is Monica (age 45) and I hit rock bottom yesterday when I barely fit in the seat on the airplane. I've done WW twice, losing 50 pounds of pregnancy weight each time. But that was 10 years ago and now I'm more uncomfortable than ever. I have no desire to be a skinny-Minnie(pun intended), I just want to be comfortable in my own skin. I want to get out of bed in the morning and not be in pain. So I'm re-joining WW, and would love to join this group for more support.

You are totally welcome here, Monica! It's been a little quiet lately but please share here! This group has helped me so much since I joined. We all have different rock bottom. Mine was being diagnosed with PCOS but also realizing that riding rides at Disney or other amusement parks with my niece was getting tougher depending on how you're strapped in. So I totally feel you there. You WILL get there though Just stick with it, and use us to lean on!

Welcome! I think you will find a group of like-minded people here. I think many of us can identify with the rock bottom thing. I signed up for WW in September and its been such a big help. You can do it!!

Welcome! I just joined the other week.

Update:
Last week was HORRIBLE! So stressed and ate my stress. Working on being better this week. Just made a healthy breakfast sandwich, so I am off to a good start. Have a good on points week!

I don't know if any of you have Weight Watchers on Facebook or not, but they posted an inspiring and AMAZING video from a corporate meeting they had recently. A leader from NY told her story of losing 300 pounds. It's the perfect kick in the pants this time of year!

Thank you so much for mentioning that! I missed this and I'll tell you, I really needed to see it. I won't look at my arm flaps (I think that's what she called them) the same way ever again.

Welcome, welcome! You can do it, girl! I bet if we were to do a poll, we'd find out many of us are not on our first attempt!

I can't find that video, but there's a woman at my meeting location who lost 300 lbs, too. She's amazing, and teaches Zumba at the Y I go to. She's on the WW message boards, and if you google "wendy weightwatchers tacoma" you can read about her. She also had a very simple blog that was mainly a weigh-in chart (I can't find it right now). It's SO motivating, because sometimes we get anxious about how long it's taking (especially when we haven't fully realized that this is truly forever...there's no "OK I'm done" moment with weight loss). She took 5 years to lose her weight. Just kept on going. Kept on losing. Over and over and over.

That's what I found inspirational about that video. You have to change your mindset to accept that for most of us, this has to be a permanent lifestyle change and it may take awhile to lose what we need to lose and change negative habits, but just keep moving forward.

Or to tie it back to Disney....Just keep swimmin'...

Hey WW Friends--

How is everyone doing during this long Christmas weekend? We had one dinner with my family yesterday and go to DH's family's dinner tomorrow. I'm kind of glad my WI is on Wednesday; I think it will help me control things tomorrow.

We're having a gentle Christmas eve snow tonight. I'm going to try going for a run in the morning to get a good start on my day.

Merry Christmas!

Awesome! 100 is so close! What are you going to do to celebrate?

I had to weigh in on Monday (instead of Tuesday) and was down .4. I have to confess, for the last two days, I have eaten heartily. I used last weeks 49 points on Monday, then my new week started today (Tuesday) and I've already used a good bit of those 49 points. Generally, I rarely use those weekly points, but I decided that this holiday comes once a year and I was going to have all the foods I don't normally get. I did figure the points on my crab dip and it wasn't as bad as I expected. 3 pts per 1/4 cup serving. Oh so yummy! But a batch of it costs about $50, so it is definitely a once a year treat.
