I would love to hear strategies on this also- getting back on the horse after a fall is one of my problem areas.

I've got another question. Does anyone use the WW pedometer? I have had TERRIBLE luck with pedometers, they all seem to register 3 steps for every one I take, or else I hit the stoopid buttons with my arm or something and keep re-setting them. I have three in my bathroom cabinet that don't work. I would like to try the pedometer for our upcoming trip, so I can see if I really am burning a decent amount of energy and either relax about my food accordingly or step it up. (My goals for vacation are simply not to gain A LOT ) I have NOT even looked at their pedometer because I have had such bad luck with others, but it might be worth it for my trip. (Please don't bother recommending other brands, I am really not interested in buying any more, and as I am in Canada the brands are often not available.) If you have tried the WW one, or have feedback from people you know who have, I'd love to hear it.

It's been over a week since I last checked in. Just don't get the computer time like I used to.

Someone mentioned discovering that the world doesn't revolve around food. I discovered that in April at WDW. All that food I had been promising myself turned out to be major disappointments. My tastes have definitely changed.

After plateauing since 5/14 I finally reached a new low. 88 lbs even.

I agree! That happened to me at my last DL trip! The corn dog I wait all year for wasn't as good as I remembered. The macaroon I packed a dozen of in my luggage on the trip before? One was enough for me. Weird.

Congrats on breaking through your plateau!

It was me saying the world doesn't revolve around food.

It's weird...there are times when have something like a piece of cake or whatever and its like "OH this is so good!!" and it's because I'm not eating it as much therefore it's like I'm almost more sensitive to that pleasure. I don't know how else to explain it. I'm a bit afraid though with losing my taste or just not being used to eating as much or eating heavier food because there's times where I want to be eating it. I would hate to lose my enjoyment of things like Disney and the fair (my 2 big food places). Not that those places wouldn't be fun without food, not that I can't split the difference and have some of the food or just smaller portions of it. I suppose it's something like I'm not finding something to replace that "joy" or that gratification that I've always gotten from eating.

I agree completely. In many ways I am enjoying food much more than before WW. Not just treats, but my regular meals too. I think because I am very mindful of what I choose to put in my mouth, I only choose things I really like to eat. At the same time I am not bombarding my taste buds with a ton of stuff all through the day- so when I do eat, like you said, it is as if I more able to enjoy the sensation of the food I am eating.

Wow! You are amazing!




I enjoy my food SO much more now. And there's no guilt because I'm either working it in to my day or I'm at Disney and have given myself permission to indulge as I wish. Food without guilt tastes a million times better to me.

Hi Linda!
I am new here too, only posted two times so far, but it certainly is encouraging to be around people with the same struggle!

I totally get the world NOT revolving around food anymore, but there are those other days where I plan out every serving ahead, and it feels like my life DOES still revolve around food, but in a different way. I hope over time, the planning becomes more natural and simple as I add more healthy meals into our rotation!

I actually took a bite of a donut that looked so yummy today. I spit it out because it tasted bad, & I didn't want to count the points on something that was gross!!

It will become part of your routine and it won't be a big deal anymore!

Life is too short for bad donuts!!!! Save yourself for the truly delicious ones.

For me so far it's mental shifts. Like tonight I really would like to eat more of my Weekly points (weigh in was today so my Weeklies are fresh and brand new, and it's my cycle and I want some darned cashews!), but then I remembered that tomorrow we're going to head up to a local festival, and I want some Indian food with rice, and maybe they'll have something else, and maybe if it's hot again tomorrow I'll have a beer. Those things along with more normal food for tomorrow mean I should probably conserve the Weeklies.

And my brain and stomach went (well, my stomach agreed until I started writing about it, so maybe I should just go to bed) "hmm, OK, sounds good". Before it would have been mental torture, would have felt like dieting, etc etc. But this was a shift of "well of course I'll save it up for the "fun" food tomorrow". Plus, we're walking there (uphill) so I'll get an activity point or two, too.
