I try to stay away from those because I could eat both in the same day (but that is just me). I have found that the Nature Valley granola thins help me out a lot. I can finish one in four bites and they are 2 points. It satisfies my sweet tooth with a low point value.

It COULD be worse!! Maybe you're hitting a plateau? Remember, it's not a trend until you have a few consecutive weeks that show a gain

Last week I had gain 1.4 because I was on vacation, this week up again .2; oh well it's that time of the month for me. I'm not going to let this get me down. I'll continue knowing that I'm just 20 lbs from goal! Good luck everyone and hope you have a great week ahead.

Can I join back in????

Hi guys! I totally fell off the wagon and was about to give up. Something in me clicked at the meeting on Tuesday though and I am ready to get this done !!!

I joined WW in June of 2011 and had about 35 pounds to lose. By December 2011, I had lost 12.6 (that was right after a 2 week Disney vacation). I was so excited and then winter, along with being home with my boys all day (I homeschool), and things went south. I stayed at around a 9-10 lbs loss until the past 4-5 weeks when I started gaining pound by pound. As of yesterday, I only had a 5.6 pound total loss. So now I'm ticked that I'm having to RE-LOSE weight I've already loss. Can anyone relate ?!?!?!

So I am back on the wagon and tracking EVERYTHING. I have lost 2 pounds since Tuesday according to my scale. YEAH!!!

I also want to say that I'm proud of my 77 year old dad. He made his 10% and goal 2 weeks ago and is now trying to figure out how to eat on maintenance. He has even less willpower than me so this is awesome. My boys are upset that I haven't gotten my 10% key ring yet -- LOL. I need to lose a total of 16 pounds for that. I was so close in December and I blew it.

P.S. If anyone is looking for something crunchy (like a potato chip), Trader Joe's has a bag of Skinny Fries. Very good. 65 fries + 3 WW points -- I usully have 1/3 of a serving. Even my boys love them!

Where can I get a weight loss ticker???

Oh, she's better than that. Our Jessie (CdnBuzzFan) is a lifetimer and actually works for WW. That's why she gets so many questions and has such wise and informed answers for us. I believe she is just over her goal weight and trying to get back down there after a slight derailment.

I missed my WI yesterday -- too much to do at work. I'm going to try to get there at noon today. I know I'll have a gain, but I'll own it and move on. I'm 5 pounds from goal and just can't seem to get over this hump.

Played some tennis with my DD17 last night. She has just returned from a bike trip from Maine back to Michigan (1300+ miles), so hadn't played any tennis for awhile. Unfortunately, her muscle memory is fine and, while I won some games, she can still whomp me. We had fun and I got exercise -- she shows no mercy!

Go to "User CP" at the top of the screen. Once there, click on "Edit Signature" under setting options. That will lead you to another screen that has tickers. Weight loss tickers are among the many choices. I've never had a weight loss ticker -- I always need to have a vacation ticker or I get depressed. One ticker is enough for me.

Great job, pwdebbie! Gives me hope to see how well you are all doing!

Now - what is the best choice when you're dying for dessert? Are the prepackaged WW products best? Do they fulfill the craving? Thanks for any ideas...
When I crave chocolate, I like the WW snack bars. They are 2 PP and are sort of like a candy bar for me. There are several different flavors (not all chocolate). It's not a typical dessert, but it fullfills my craving for a candy bar.

I joined WW on March 2. On August 2, I finally reached 30# lost! I have lost 30.6 I will never see again! It feels like it took forever to get to 30#. I only hope that I am still at 30# lost when I come back from vacation.

Congratulations! Just do a lot of walking and hopefully you will be there when you get back!

I'm watching the scale go down slowly, but I'm not "seeing" it. I don't feel any different and I haven't noticed that my clothes are fitting any differently either. For example if I go from my weight today I am down for about 20 pounds. (I won't count it until WI on Tuesday though). I almost feel like my scale is playing a trick on me! lol

My preference right now is Jello Cook & Serve Fat-Free Sugar-Free chocolate pudding. A 1/2 cup serving made with 2% milk is the same points as many of the WW sweets but this satisfies me so much more. And for one more point I can add some whipped cream.

I didn't start fitting into smaller clothes until I hit about 35 lbs off. At this point, I am still wearing some of my 22s (but most have gone into the giveaway pile). But I am also wearing my dd's size 18s. She has lost over 45 lbs (we attend together) and is down to 14s now. Be patient, it will happen!

I like some of the WW products but try to stick to the bars that are 2 points. Also for two points, I like the little Reese Peanut Butter Cups, Almond Joy and Ohenry bars. They all come in a pack of 8, are individually wrapped and are two points each. You can also get York Peppermint patties, Butter Finger and Coffee Crisp. Here, in Ontario, I can get them at Walmart and at the Dollarrama.

Also, fruit and yogurt makes a good dessert for me.
