I was up .2. Not big but I'm in a bit of a slow down and I'm not totally sure why. I've been eating well and exercising a tone(training for a 5k in 3 weeks). I had two weeks of .4, then a maintain, then +.2. I'm a little frustrated but pushing forward. I try not to eat my exercise points but could I not be eating enough?

I am actually finally starting to go back down, despite the fact that I was at -4 on my weeklies last week. Camping ad barbecuing... I still ate a ton of veggies, weighed and measured everything, and ran while I was gone. I also was back on weight loss, so even though I used more than what I had, I still used less than what I did on maintenance. Maybe that shocked my system enough for a loss? I have no idea. Over 2 years at this and I still don't have a clue sometimes! lol

Hi all. I'm Me'Shell. I've been on WW for 3 years this last go-around (many tries before). I've lost 77.4lbs and am 29lbs from goal.

I am an AP holder and frequent DL A LOT. I'm always in need to ideas and info re: healthier eating in the park, so if anyone has any suggestions I'd be happy to hear them.

Great to have a place to go chat about WW AND Disney

Augh, I cannot get this maintenance thing down. I'm back to paying (meaning I'm above even my raised goal range). The receptionist would have raised it more if I asked, but I didn't ask.

Tracking and exercising. That's what I have to do more of. Sounds so simple. (and I never intended to slow down tracking or not exercise, not sure what happened there mentally) But I've never done the "now it's for the rest of your life" thing; I've always been gaining or losing.



On the other side, DH has lost THREE weeks in a row! So very proud of him and happy for him.

Maintenance is a tricky business! Hang in there! We can do this.

Whew. Downward trend again.

Finally inside my goal *range*, though it's an increased goal from where I originally called myself at goal. Downward trend will continue and then I can lower that goal again. Too many pounds above it, and I get into trouble! (Many more, and I wouldn't have fit into all my new pants!)


Things I've learned since January. (I only hit goal last Fall)

Tracking works!
Thinking you're tracking when you're really eyeballing doesn't!

Even for a big produce-eater like me, I can't eat ALL fruit ALL the time. Gotta mix it up with some vegetables. Can't say that's the biggest difference, but it is a difference. So hard to step away from the luscious berries and get lettuce on my plate, but veggies are good!

It is 1,000,000% apparent to me that I have to track while away on trips. I thought I'd track for our January trip and I didn't, and the last week of it caused problems (along with the month back home when I finally wasn't sick anymore and could taste food). I thought I'd track during our last-minute 20 day trip to England and Ireland (when DH is sent and the airfare isn't horrendous and the calendar is clear, it's awesome!) and I didn't, and it caused problems.

I *have to* track. No way around it. Can't look the way I want to look (and FEEL the way I want to feel!) while eating just any old way...even if I'm tracking a 90 point day, I *have to* track.

What can I say, life's not fair!

I also track on vacation, bumbershoot. Even if I have to guess or use a generic item, I have to keep track of what I eat.

Tracking is the only way I loose. When I don't I gain

Glad to know I'm not alone. Not sure why I thought I could get away with it.

Woooooo!




I lost again this week. Thanked the receptionist who has helped the last few weeks for her extreme kindness. Hope she got how deeply I meant it.

A few more to go and I'm back to my original goal. Or I keep the current goal but get to wear regular clothes for weighing in.
