Vent

Grrr.....

Just need to vent. So I pack and track my breakfast (oatmeal), lunch (chicken sandwich with tomatoes) and snacks. I get to work and see that I have lunch out scheduled with two people from my office.

Sandwich will be soggy by tomorrow, so I forego the oatmeal (it's dry in a homemade packet) and eat the sandwich and cheddar mini rice cakes for breakfast -- more points than I want to eat for b'fast, but I figure I'll do soup/salad for lunch.

Now I'm feeling overfull (guess it's great that I noticed), and I just get a call that they've changed lunch to a "brown bag" so that we can watch a webinar together.

Bleh. I've got Ramen noodle cups here for emergencies, but I'm just irritated.

Okay. Thanks for letting me vent.

I find myself looking forward to your post each week. Another good week!

I had my WI today and I lost 3.6! That's more than I lost my first week! I got my first 5 lbs star today, 7.6 lbs for my first month! I'm so shocked because I had salad works one day and it was not a WW friendly salad! Maybe I needed the extra points? Who knows but I'm happy!

I had my WI yesterday, I am down 1.6. I was really worried as we worked a festival all weekend long. Hopefully next week I will hit my 5% goal.

Speaking of goal, did everyone set their goal weight with their leader or on their own? How does that work?

I know! I bounce between struggling to eat all my points and going over them. So losing a point is a blessing and a curse. When people tell me they only have 26 points I cringe! I currently have 34 points. That is a big difference. Especially on those nights that I *need* a big glass of wine!

Hi everyone. I had my second wi today and i am down 4.8 total for a goal of ten, but to be honest 20 would be amazing. I like reading here, it gives me great ideas and inspiration. This is my first formal diet and i will admit i don't have lots to loose, it's still rough.

Congrats on your 1.6 loss this week. I had a lot to lose, 70+ pounds. I knew what I wanted my goal weight to be but, personally didn't want to write down that goal number until I was at the 10 lbs left to lose mark. So I did it towards the end. No one at my meetings put a timeline on it. Just when I was ready I went to my leader. Now to get lifetime with WW you have to be within "their" weight range, unless you get a doctors note stating different.

I have been eating 26 points and it's not easy. On the weekend I dip into my weeklies but usually I don't eat them all. When I get back to goal I'll go back up to about 30-32.

Holy cow. I just paid my money & registered for the Disney Princess 1/2. It's official. And officially SCARY. BUT, it's super exciting to have another long term goal out there that will help me achieve the initial one of getting to my goal weight. I hope NJ has another mild winter... otherwise my butt will be out there running in the FREEZING cold. No matter what I WILL be out there.

I agree about the winter! I am planning on doing the Wine and Dine 1/2 and I need every day that I can get! No snow or ice this winter for NJ!

Congratulations all your LOSERS! Ilovevacation, that is exactly why I started the first thread ... to inspire and support one another . I do notice a difference when I participate on the thread and when I pull the covers over my head and ignore it.

Me, too, Robin. Even when I do take some time off and slip a bit, I always feel good about coming back to this thread. It re-energizes me and no one judges. Everyone is supportive.

Once again, I thank you Robin for starting the original thread.
