My next goal is for my age and weight to match.

I was thinking about what changes I have seen in myself physically since joining WW and thought I'd list a few to encourage others.
* I haven't had to eat a Tums since the day I started following the plan.
* My uvula (you know -- the thing that hangs down in the back of your mouth?) no longer falls back in my throat and chokes me (the dental hygienist will be pleased).
* My bp is lower (can't wait to see my doctor in two weeks, usually I dread the appointment).

I'm a happy gal today! [Don't tell my dh, but last night I planted the thought in his head that to celebrate my weight loss, dd (who is now down 54) and I should go for a short trip to WDW. It would be a great 30th birthday gift for her in early December, don't you think? ]
Congratulations and thanks for sharing the changes you've noticed as you've gotten healthier

Bumbershoot I love that you need smaller shorts. You are definitely winning the battle of the bulge

I was so disappointed last week on my birthday. I was so hoping to reach my 45 lbs mark. I missed it by 1/2 lb plus I had no walking or running time because of my knee. This week I enjoyed my weekend and ate good but I made good healthy choices and I not only lost that 1/2 lb but I lost enough where I'm at a 46 lbs weight lost! I couldn't believe it. I'm just 14 lbs away from my goal.

I have just one month before my next 5K and 168 days until my 1/2 marathon! I have lots to be thankful for and I do thank all of my family and friends for believing in me.

Just remember don't give up and jump over those bumps in the road...you will feel so much better!

-Stephanie

Congratulations on the loss! I am freaking out over my half marathon. I am wishing I didn't sign up. I have a feeling I am going to be picked up for going too slow

Congrats to everyone for making such great progress!

My first meeting went great! I am excited to get started! Has anyone used the fitness tracker that plus into the computer? (I cannot remember the exact name.). I am really thinking about getting one. I think it will make me more aware and accountable.

I've wondered about this device, too. I need to ask about it at my next meeting (next Monday--really hoping for a good weigh-in). I'm trying to get out of my sedentary lifestyle and perhaps this would help me get motivated to move.

I spent last week eating and splurging and skipped my meeting. But am back on track now with the help of my Daily Tracker--it's so mportant to write EVERYTHING down. If I don't, I'm a mess! It's amazing how much better I feel, physically and emotionally, when I eat right!

Yesterday was my first day of classes. Blah. The plus side is that I graduate in May and then I'm swearing off formal education forever! lol But I think they are trying to kill us. So my biggest goal this semester (besides getting all my work done!) is to stick with WW and working out no matter what. It is going to be hard but I really need to do it for me.

I got my HRM today. I haven't opened it yet, but that will be tomorrow's goal.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Congratulations Debbie! Hitting the 50 pound weight loss mark is fantastic. I had to laugh at your "age and weight match" comment though. So, are you close to 100 years old or so? I assume you meant age and weight loss to match, but you gave me a good giggle.

I've been away from this thread for a few weeks. Went to WDW (had a fabulous time) and have had to do other travels for work and family. Anyway, I hadn't tracked and missed three weeks of meetings. Finally faced the scales yesterday and I own my 4 pound weight gain. Now I'm 8 pounds from goal. All my choice, so I'm back on track and moving on. I'm hopeful to have a decent WI next Wednesday!

I am trying to track everything, but the online tracker does not have Arby's and neither of the WW products (a meal and a snack) I consumed today. I also cannot find the scanner to scan the codes on the foods. I am excited about this adventure, but frustrated already! Can anyone help?

It does take a little more time, but sometimes you just have to use a calculator and figure everything. If you are going to a restaurant that is not in the tracker, you may have to go to their website for nutritional info and calculate it. Is the scanner you are referring to the iPhone app? If so, you search the app store for "Weight Watchers scanner" and you will find it.

Great, thanks! I will do a search to see if I can find it.

Just so you know, the WW scanner doesn't have info for every food product. I often get a "not recognized" (or something similar) message when I scan stuff at the grocery store or at home. In those cases, you just have to do the calculation.

Good catch, Sandi! Yes, I did mean weight loss. I turn 57 in October and would like to be down 57 lbs by then.

Eight pounds from goal is great! I know, you were happier when you could say you were four pounds from goal, but you'll get back there soon enough. I know what a two-day trip did to me, I can't imagine three weeks of traveling.
