Agreed! The meeting just makes my week to be honest! It's just nice to spend that half hour with people doing the same thing, struggling, succeeding, etc. I always tell my husband, no matter what my scale at home says, the number isn't real until Wednesday night when I weight. Until then, it doesn't count, good or bad!

I do have a quick question - if you all could help me please.

When I signed up for the 3 months online it was $56.85. With a monthly fee of $18.95. She cancelled that yesterday and signed my up for the Monthly pass for $42.95. In the small print it says that it will charge my card again in 15 days (I understand that) - but here is my question - Do you all pay $42.95 a month. That just seems a bit steep to me.

Thanks!

So, although it was something I would enjoy to do I think that until I lose some weight I probably shouldn't do that for now. Back to 30 day shred!
That video is intense! Sometimes it makes me feel a little pukey!

That is what I pay for the monthly pass, $42.95. It's part of our budget and will stay until I reach goal and get to go for FREE!

It is definitely more intense than I was expecting! This morning I can feel it. My wrists don't hurt, although they did bother me some when I was doing the exercises. I think I'm going to continue doing the first half of the video (where she goes slow!) because I really do need to strengthen my core.

Yoga Meltdown and Yoga Inferno are also good for the core.

I actually have Yoga Meltdown. I haven't used it yet... I have only had it for about 3 years. Guess I will need to remedy that!

Yep, that's what I've been paying since March 14, 2012. Really want to get to lifetime so I can be free! However, my dd made lifetime, went to work for WW but quit when it wasn't really a good job for her family-wise, and has regained 17 pounds. She promises she will be starting back up next week, but she'll be paying again. I told dh that I WILL continue once-a-month weigh-ins and meetings once I reach lifetime. I don't want to ever see that weight come back.

I'm giving Bumbershoot's idea a try and eating pretty much all of my points this week to see what happens. I'm tracking my APs which is really just me on the treadmill 3 times a week right now. I did get on the scale this morning just to see how it was going and I was down 0.4 lb. My official weigh in is on Tuesday mornings. I truly don't mind losing only 0.5 lb a week if it means that I can continue to eat the things I like. That doesn't mean that I'm not making changes to my diet, I am. I do think that I am starting to see changes in my shape already, but I didn't measure myself so I'm not certain. Either way, I'm tracking everything and staying on track with exercise so that's something.

I haven't really checked in here for a while! I have been lurking though. Welcome to all the newbies and congrats on everyone's weight loss!

I am still trying to settle into maintenance and figure out what my goal weight really is. I am about 9 pounds down from my original goal. I originally though I needed to do down 5 more, but now I'm not sure! It has already taken me almost a year to get this last 9 pounds off, so maybe I really am done! Who knows? Maintenance is a work in progress, for sure.

Yes, I paid that until I made Lifetime. We pay it for DH, too.

Note! It's going up in something like one week. Will be, I believe, 44.95 soon *for newbies*. For those who are already paying 42.95 it will stay the same. If you quit and restart later, it will go up. Serious incentive to start now and stick with it!

I gotta tell you, Free Lifetime feels good!

Tell her to join sooner rather than later! Monthly Pass is going up, and if you are already on the 42.95 you will stay at that level.

First across-the-board price increase in 5 years, my leader said.

Try to stick with it for more than just the one week, OK? One week could show a gain just by the extra food in your belly. Really give it a good shot and don't be freaked out by one weigh-in.

A quick couple of questions - and don't laugh:

Is there a chart with all of the points on it? I really don't even know where to look. I track my food and it gives me a point value, but I would like to know the point value before I eat it. I think I would be making better choices if I knew what the point was BEFORE I ate.

Simple start and Power Foods?

I really am clueless - sorry. I really am a smart person just so confused right not.
You really have to read your materials.

Ok, well I just couldn't figure out the online Weight Watchers so I called to cancel it yesterday and talked to the neatest lady. She suggested that I go to the meetings, as they have the point charts and everything I really do need to get started. I am so a hands on person. I need to see it - ya know it's a control thing. Anyway the online is all done by computer or your smart phone. And call me old, but I just couldn't figure it out. I feel a whole lot better and will go to a meeting on Thursday. Get my stuff and do this!!!

Thanks again, I will check back and let you all know how it goes.
Buy the calculator when you get to your first meeting. If you don't want to use the smartphone app, etc, you HAVE TO HAVE the calculator. If your'e just going by the book with generic points, you're not going to be exact.

If you have the calculator you can calculate everything you want as long as you have the nutrition information. (fat, carbs, fiber, protein)

And when you go the meetings, the info you will be given is still an overview. Go home and READ. Read everything they give you. The glossy pretty stuff has the program information inside. Promise.



******************
Kept my free lifetime status by the skin of my teeth today! Whew! I even brought my wallet up to pay, I was so sure I wouldn't make it. Made it by .2.

My new regime is to weigh EVERY week. This is not what I envisioned 2 years ago (Feb 18 was my 2 year WW anniversary), but it's what I gotta do. Life's not fair, and I can't look how I want to look while eating how I want to eat...and I can't maintain if I have 4 weeks to mess around in without weighing.

Oh well!

I just found this thread and have loved reading what i have so far. I have recently joined WW. My mom and i joined together. I think that doing this with someone will make all the difference. I have been doing this for 2 weeks so far and am working on my third week. The first week i did great i lost 3.6 lbs. Last week i only lost .2 lbs. I think it was because i didnt drink all the water like i started out doing. That is the only real difference that i had. Could it have really been the water?? Or i dont know maybe this makes me crazy, but could it have been that i was on a different scale at WW? My scale at home showed that i had lost at least 2 lbs more then that .2. To be honest i need to worry about what the scale says because i need to lose alot however i am not worried that it only said .2 because i know that i had a good week and that i made some great choices. I just cant help but wonder if the scale i used at the meeting makes a difference.

I will give it a serious try. I like to be able to splurge more on the weekends. I think that this will allow it to happen, as long as I stay serious with my exercise. I do plan on stepping that up. Also I know that it is so much easier for me to eat better over the spring, summer, fall than it is in the winter. So I'm looking forward to spring like nobody's business! lol We grill most every night and eat a lot of fresh fruits and veggies. Winter is just tough for me.

My daughter and I joined together. She reached lifetime a while back but has regained, so she promises she will start coming to meetings with me again.

I use my scale at home to give me an idea of how I am doing but only record the WW scale officially. If you choose to, you can use the same scale every week at the meeting. I know some ladies that are convinced that scale #2 gives them the most favorable numbers. There is a difference of about three pounds for me from my morning weight at home and my official weight at 5:00 p.m. at the meeting. I don't think you can ever expect the two scales to weigh the same. I look at my scale here and think, "Ok, looks like I'll have a loss this week" or "Oh my, well, at least I won't be shocked at the meeting when I'm up."

You may not have lost as much the second week because your body is adjusting OR time of the month (if you are female, lol) OR you increased activity OR you didn't drink as much. There are probably a few more ORs that could be put in there. The important thing is to track and try to hit the power foods as much as possible. I have discovered roasted vegetables and boy am I loving them! Even boring broccoli has taken on a new flavor for me.


Bumbershoot, thanks for the heads up about the price increase. I let my daughter know. ETA -- She just said she'll be paying $13.00 each weigh in and is going to go every other week.
