Hello. I'm pretty slow, so my 11 miles on Saturday took 3 hours and 20 minutes. It's about 4 minutes per mile slower than where I want to be...BUT it's about 3 minutes per mile faster than I was averaging back when I started walking consistently and three miles was really hard to finish...so I'll take it as a win!

WI yesterday, was down 2.2 and hit my 10% yay. SO FAR to go though...really going to try and focus back on basics this week...tracking everything and following the guidelines...I got kinda sloppy the last couple of weeks...and I think I'm a little off track. (That 2.2 was for 2 weeks as I didn't go to meeting last weekend we were out of town...).

Great job everyone!

Brooke

I am down 1 lb. in spite of some serious deviation from the program

I keep just thinking that I've lost 11.6 lbs. since beginning 7/9--so I'm making progress--it's just slow progress. The meeting was a good one with lots of discussion and I left feeling completely committed to adhering to WW. The meeting theme was Transform Your Habits so I've picked one of mine (I have several to choose from ---lucky me) which is my unhealthy eating in the evening and work on it.

Thanks to all who post their losses and gains. I seem to learn something from this thread every week.

Hello, I am an "old" Weight Watcher who is back on plan. I restarted on the plan August 3 and am dealing with a slower rate of weight loss....assuming it has something to do with turning 50?? (Grr)

I lost 4.2 pounds over my first 4 weeks (including one staying the same week) and then almost doubled my weight loss with 4 pounds down at my last weigh in.

On the plus side, I am eating alot better and tracking well. I'm hoping I had a slow start but that things will continue to move along.

Here are my before and "progress" pictures. I'm not quite an after yet, but I'm getting there!

September 2011 - I started WW in February, but I didn't take any before pictures. This is pretty much what I looked like though!

Well, I have not been to WW for 3 weeks. Last week it was closed due to Labor Day and the week before I missed it due to a phone call from an old friend.
So, this was essentially week 3 for me and ..... I MAINTAINED!
I can't believe it! I thought I had gained. The good news is that I have a new goal and I know I can do this.

I will be going to a different meeting due to my changing work schedule, so maybe that will help too.

Get some new ideas, new people...I think it will be good.
I am looking forward to the day I won't go to meetings and can do this online.
But, for now, I need the support of real people.

Lisa

Now, wait a minute... 5 weeks and 8.2 pounds down? That isn't slow!

I see Arby's in the tracker; are you using the full website, or the mobile one? The mobile doesn't have everything (or maybe it's the app that DH uses that doesn't have everything?), but when I use my computer and go to the main site with the main tracker, there's a long list I'm seeing right now of foods from Arby's.

Just use nutrition info for the WW things. The scanner isn't always accurate, or so I've heard, and the NI is always going to give you the right info, well, as long as you are careful to enter fiber and protein at the right times (the app does it backwards!).

Let us know how the new meeting goes. I personally can't do this without my meetings. The first year of lifetime has been a struggle for me and my meetings and this board have been key to my success. I slacked off this summer with checking in here and going to meetings and well now I'm up in weight a little. So back to what I know works! Good luck to you Lisa .

AWESOME! You look great.

WI for me today. Down 1.2 for a total of 20.8! I'm super excited to have made it past 20 pounds. Every other time I've tried to lose weight I've stopped at about 10 and just gave up. Not this time!

I am leaving for Orlando on Thursday, we are sailing the Fantasy on Saturday. My weigh-in day is Wednesday, but I decided to weigh myself this morning because I don't know if I will think about it tomorrow or if I will have time too. I lost my gain of 3.2 pounds from last week plus 1.2 pounds this week bringing this weight loss to 18 pounds in total. I am really happy about that.

Since I am leaving on vacation, I do think I will gain some back, but I also plan on working out almost daily on the Fantasy so that I can still indulge in all the wonderful food!

Keep up the great work everyone and congrats to everyone who lost this week!
