Lots of great inspiration in this thread.
A loss is a loss! If you started exercising too you could just be retaining water. My favorite WW recipe website is Skinny Taste. I'm sure they will have something for your party.

I agree! I increased my exercise dramatically recently, and I didn't lose an ounce for 2 weeks. Our bodies do weird things. But definitely celebrate! It is a loss!

I earned over 24 APs the week that only lost .2 lbs. The next week I dropped 2!

Hi everyone!! I just joined WW online today, hoping to make lifestyle changes. DH and I joined the YMCA back in January, and I workout there for an hour Mon-Fri while my kids are in school. Glad I found y'all, I need all the motivation I can get!

Tomorrow is WI. I'm ready for anything.

I believe that I see losses and gains on the 2nd weigh in after the behavior that caused the change. Considering the difficulties I've had in eating how I "should" be eating the last two days, it'll be interesting! And that isn't even including the flight.

No biggie though! I hit my year mark while I was gone, and I'll get it together. Off to have some fruit and drink more water!


Poor DH lost his Active Link on the plane. He doesn't eat his AP, but he likes to know how many he has earned. It was quite the bummer.

Welcome!

I have eaten more activity points than I normally do, so weigh in will be interesting this time!

If I joined online, does that membership include meetings too? It might be helpful for me to have a weigh in every week.

If you are an online member, it does not include meetings.

Jumping back in. I have gained 6 pounds in the last 3 weeks. I am so ashamed of myself.

Beating yourself up for what is already done will do you no good. Start from here, and feel good about that.
