The leader can make all the difference -- but so can the people who attend. We love our Tuesday night meetings because of the leader AND the people. I've gone to the same leader's other meetings, and there is a big difference. My dd said it is because the morning meetings are filled with a bunch of old ladies who talk old lady stuff, lol. Our evening meeting is a nice mix of ages and sex with a lot of participation.

Yay for 1.2!

We are down there the 14 - 19. We are off property since we are staying with DH's parents at their timeshare. That doesn't sound bad. I was in the same situation with my grandma (now that sounds bad) and we were moving to a different state. She ended up passing away 4 days before we moved.

Hi all! I posted here a number of months ago but want to get serious about regular posting! I just finished a nine week challenge at our local Y (coupled with WW meetings) and am down 5 pounds. Ideally I would love to see 10 more gone by 5/22, our next WDW trip! I am about 4-5 pounds from my lifetime goal, another huge motivator!

Excited to chat, cheer and encourage with you all!

Hi everyone! WI day for me is Thursday, I'm down 1 more pound! My problem now is I am starving all the time the last few days and it's tough to stay on point. TOM is the week after next, could that be why? (Sorry if this is TMI!)

The week *after* next? I hope that's not the reason; it's going to feel really long for you if it is. And of course it's not TMI. Some people gain quite a bit during those days, so it's really good to talk about it!

Are you getting in the "good health guidelines" or "healthy checks" (basically the same things)? Your oils, your dairy or alternatives, your fruits and veggies? I find the oils to be SO important to keep the tum happy. (and hair, skin, and nails as well)

Are you only eating your Daily points? If so, maybe you could experiment with eating some Weekly and/or some Activity points? Not everyone can, not everyone wants to, not everyone needs to, but then there are others (me) who can (lose while eating them all), wants to, and NEEDS to, or they'll go off program (like I did the other 3 times I attempted WW). For people like me, going with only the Daily points feels like deprivation, which can do bad things to some peoples' heads.

It's worth thinking about, if you're just doing the Dailies right now! And especially if you're new...are you new? I'm sorry it takes a LONG time for me to start remembering people. (embarrassing) Anyway, especially IF you are new to WW it's easier to try something like that, rather than waiting. It's scary to add points in at any time, but especially when you've been doing it for awhile.

This. I rarely eat my activity points, and I never eat my weeklies. However, if I work out a lot, or if I'm starving by the end of the day, I do use activity points. You should not be starving. If you are legitimately hungry, and not just having a craving or wanting to eat because you're bored, you aren't eating enough. Personally, I eat every couple of hours most days. If I have done that, I am not usually hungry by the end of the day.

You are killing it! KUTGW!!

And posting here inspires me to do better myself.

Great job, too, Robin, Okie and everyone else.

I injured my foot, so it's been doctors offices, xrays etc. for me. I let it get me off track last week and I more or less gave up, but I forced myself to go to the meeting yesterday and that really got me back on track. If the grandmother walking with a cane could lose 50 lbs, I can do the same (and then some).

Back on track.

Meeting question (prompted by Robin's post):

My great leader is leaving our Saturday morning local meeting. Her new meeting is at a big center over 30 minutes away. It's really not convenient for me to get out there AND weighing in on Saturday seems to prompt me to overeat Saturday night.

So, if you have time, I have a few questions:

What day of the week to you go to meetings?

How far do you travel?

How important is convenience vs. an especially good leader?


Thanks, all!

Hello Everyone!

WI was yesterday, and I'm down 1.6 for a totlal of 13.4.

Hope everyone has a good week and gets active!!!


In response to Jeslynb --

I WI on Saturday 8am. Its one of the few times that there is a meeting I can attend. I travel 10 miles to attend this meeting. If I can not make this meeting I attend a Saturday afternoon meeting that is 38 miles away. There are not very many weekend meetings near my house and the meetings offered during the week are at 9am, 11:30 am or 2 pm. I think there may be a 4:30 pm on Wednesday, but I would never make it there in time.

The leader is an important part of the meeting for me - in the past I have quit going because I did not enjoy the leader. Now, that I am changing my life and committed to the lifestyle changes -- connivence is more important to me. I can receive the motivation from other members at the meeting as much as the leader. However, I do have to say that I have been lucky this time and with either meeting the leaders are fantastic.

Now this week my goal is to increase my activity yet again. I love seeing that little firework show when my activlink gets beyond 100%!!

Down .4 this morning! I went to Wednesday night meetings for years and switched to Sunday morning a few months ago which has been a huge help in reigning in weekend temptation. I also now drive 20+ minutes to a center rather than a local meeting (at a senior center room). I am so much happier with a morning meeting. I liked both leaders equally but enjoy early morning more than at night.
