I need to join this chat. I joined WW 4/29/13, and did great thru Thanksgiving, and have fallen off the wagon since. I did not attend this week because I hand surgery on my hand, but really need to back on top of things. I have currently lost 53 lbs, with many more to go. When I joined I knew that this was going to be a many year journey for me, so I am determined to keep with it.

So, I set smaller, more achievable goals along the way. Thus far, I received my 5%, my 10%, and the other WW celebrations, but my fun for myself goal was to weigh less then my DH, which I now do by 15-20 lbs. that was great for my self esteem! My current goal I am working on I actually set when I joined. I wanted to be back at my wedding weight by 5/1/14, when we return to the World. That was a 70 lb weight loss, so I am we'll on my way, but need to get unstuck. Less the 20 lbs to go with 117 days to go. I should be able to do this.

To help me get my rear in gear, I am excited to try the Simple Start program to refocus myself. I also need to get back to my walking which I do 2-3 days a week for 40 minutes. I really want to increase how often I walk as well, after all I am in training for two weeks at Disney, I need the conditioning.

I look forward to learning mor about everyone's journey and having another support system. I don't think I could have succeeded as well as I have thus far if I didn't have such a great meeting leader and group that I attend. It helps me more then I can say to hear of people's successes and trials. Helps me remember that I am not alone!

I'm heading back to work Monday and looking for some ideas for quick breakfast - on the go type breakfast. Cereal counts. What types of cereal are really good but low in points?? I love cereal but it seems to take up so many points, but realistically its what works best for me.
TIA!!!

If you are a fan of oatmeal, it can be a good one to grab and do at work. I have taken the instant pak and used the hot tap on the water at work to make, added some dried fruit and had a good breakfast that sticks with me for hours.

I realize it's Tuesday now but in case you still need ideas, Cheerios is a good cereal (either the plain original or the multigrain). It's 3 ppv for a whole cup. I also do Life cereal (original) which is 3 ppv for 3/4 cup.

The new Simple Start is based on Simply Filling, where you can eat as much as you want of the power foods and use you weekly 49 for indulgences (7 per day) like chocolate, wine, etc. In this method, plain Cheerios and unfrosted shredded wheat are allowed.

Hope that helps!

Well weigh-in wasn't as bad as I thought-I'd put on 2lbs which means I've still lost 7.5lbs so very happy. Just started the new simple start programme and enjoying it so far (day 1 ). Had puffed wheat for breakfast which tasted weird at first but wa quick and filled me up so did the job Good luck everyone - hope we are all "losers" this week

Hi, I would love to join in on this thread. I'm 37 married to DH for 16 years with two girls (6 and 2). I just joined WW online last Thursday so I haven't hit my one week yet. However, I am looking for any support. I'm just not really sure "what" to do yet. I've been tracking so that's an eye opener on its own.
My daughter gets to dance at Disney in March so I would LOVE to lose a few by then.

Overwhelmed with all the diet plans out there for the year.
Has anyone started the new WW plan?
If so can you share some basic info about it. Thanks!

So I'm back again. Hopefully for good this time. I do it all online because I can't make any meetings. I weighed myself last Thursday just to see WHAT I weighed, but waited until Monday to start tracking and holding myself accountable. I will say that it feels so much HARDER this time than it did last time. I feel hungry constantly and all I want to do it snack on something. I'm having crazy carb cravings too. I have not cut them out, but have been trying to eliminate a lot of the sweets that I was eating. So this morning I weighed myself to start my first "official" week, and the scale said I was down 2.8 lbs. I know it is mostly water weight etc, but it was enough to help me be a little more motivated to stay on track. I really need to sustain it this time. I printed out motivational sayings to put on the frig and there is a group of 4 of us at work that are supporting each other. Here's to hoping that this sticks!

Hi I've started the new ww plan. Its basically eating healthy and filling foods that you use to cook from scratch. No processed or ready meals/sauces but you can eat as much as you want as long as you make sure you're satisfied not stuffed lol. Only brown/wholegrain pastas, cereals and rice are allowed and you can eat calorie controlled wholegrain breads or ww bread products such as wraps etc. You also get 2 treats a day but you must use or lose them that day. These can be a small glass of wine, 2 squares of chocolate or teaspoon butter type thing. Hope this helps

For any WW veterans wanting to try simple start that's not how it is described to us. The 7 points a day is simply the 49 weekly points. Do with them what you wish. And when you wish inside that week. Also, those of us who have been doing ww can also use activity points. The leader said that its just overwhelming to figure APs at the beginning so they don't mention it but if this is something you just want to try, you can still use them.

Thanks for help, luvpooh.
In case anyone doesn't know Dannon fit and light Greek yogurt is really good.
Tried the orange cream. Loved it. The toasted coconut vanilla also good.
Bought banana cream, not crazy about it.

Sorry I should have clarified that this was how week 1 on the new plan was explained to us but we were told that from week 2 we would have the 49 points per week to do with as we wished Didn't mean to confuse anyone

I officially joined WW 2 days ago and it is really working for me. I feel more satisfied based on a point system, as opposed to counting calories and feeling so defeated when I went over my 1300 goal.

I obviously won't know for a while how it will work in the long run, but I feel like this is a manageable lifestyle change.
