Jules, there's always people in our meeting who, when asked if they have anything to celebrate say, "I'm up but I'm here." Not everyone loses every week (I was up two WIs ago myself). Don't avoid the meeting because of the scale. Once you skip one meeting, it becomes easier to skip the next and the next and . . .

Been there - done that, will most likely do it again! Lol.

I totally agree with this.

I didn't go to the meeting because we put our cat to sleep unexpectedly this morning. Not facing the scale had nothing to do with it.

Yesterday she had difficulty breathing so we took her to the vet. Less than 24 hours later she's gone. So yeah the scale was not on my mind at all. I was putting my cat to sleep.

Oh I'm so sorry. My answer must have seemed heartless, and I wanted to be encouraging.

I can totally understand why you didn't want to go to the meeting. We will be putting our dog to sleep on Tuesday -- our meeting is Tuesday night and I'm not sure about leaving dh alone. Lady, our almost 16yo beagle, is blind, deaf, senile, and today I had to scrub four rooms of carpet plus the kitchen floor because she messed. She is dh's baby and he has held on to her for as long as he could, but he acknowledged today that it is time. So I do know how you are feeling. Our dd who lives next door, put their dog down last week and dh really loved that dog too, so it has been a rough week for him.

Pets have a special place in our hearts, don't they?

No your answer didn't seem heartless. I went back and read my post before that and it did sound like I was not going because of the scale. I just wanted to clarify.

I'm sorry to hear about your dog. I'll be thinking of you on Tuesday.

Oh I did gain .8 :/

I'm so sorry to hear about your pets. They really are part of our families.

I'm back! I joined WW in January- lost a little over 7 pounds and then life happened. I have the monthly pass so I kept weighing and logging my (gaining) weight online but didn't go to meetings. Last week I went back to the meeting but didn't weigh in- just logged it from home. I really needed the motivation. This week I went and weighed in. Now I'm ready to start over!

We are going to Disney the third week in July and I'd really like to be in better shape. I know I can't get anywhere near where I'd like to be by then but I would like to be down as much as possible.

I bought the success kit or whatever it's called and I"m going to start using the Success Handbook today. I really need motivation!

Hope everyone has a great week!

Jules and Debbie, so sorry to hear about your pets. It's so hard to lose an animal who has been a family member for so long.

Lost a post. Let's try again...

Jules, I hope you're not feeling badly about the 0.8. Not sure if you weighed at home or at meeting, but if you used a different scale it could easily be that. My home scale is always more--unless I somehow lose a pound or so on the 15 minute drive in to the meeting! If so, I am doing that drive a LOT!

lovethattink, WTG! Nice net loss.

Welcome (back), Goofygirl! You are going a month or so before I am...I too am hoping to look better in vacation pics! Tired of hiding from the camera. There's no way I'll be at goal, but I can easily come down a size (or two??) in the time I have. You too! Here's to a summer vacation where we can keep up with the family AND be in front of the camera instead of behind it.

I hurt my knee when I was walking the dog on Friday. Not even sure why or how, just noticed about 30 minutes in I could hardly bend my knee. Was really sore by bedtime and not great yesterday. Trying to keep ibuprophen going, but didn't do anything yesterday, and I'd been 10 days straight with at least 3 APs a day. Really bummed. Will try to get 20 or 30 minutes walking today, but I have a bad feeling this is not going to resolve quickly. It sucks getting older...I am in my "late 40's" and things are starting to fall apart I fear.

wvjules- so sorry about your cat That's really hard to lose a pet.



I survived the weekend and even fit in some walks in the park.

Do any of you weigh yourself in between "official" weigh-ins? I have a really bad habit of weighing myself every day when I'm trying to lose weight. If I see the scale go down it's really motivating (and reminds me I'm doing stuff right), but when I see it stay the same or go up it has the opposite effect.

Jules and Debbie, I am so sorry about your pets. I went through that a few years ago and it was one of the hardest things I ever had to do.

Molitva, I weigh myself every day or every few days. I just like to know where I am during the week, but I usually don't let it affect me. This is not for everyone. If it is having that much of an effect on you, I would say don't do it.

I sometimes do. I try not to do it often but if I think I've either been really good or really bad I like to see where I am. It sometimes turns out to be a bad thing though!
