We both weigh ourselves first thing in the morning. I was actually down 1.6 from Tuesday a.m. (I go to WW in the evening on Tuesdays), so I think I can expect a loss next week.
Wonderful!!! Congratulations!!!

Congratulations!!!!!!

omg I just realized that I hit my second 10% last week. I can give my old keychain back! It's been hanging on a peg above my desk for ages now.

I noticed that people were thanking you for starting the thread...I hadn't noticed it was you, but THANK YOU!

I just grab random colors from the leader's clip box (she is SO nice to provide them), but what a neat idea, to have a different color for the 5 lb marks! I might have to switch things around with it.




Ugh, I'm sick for the first time since starting WW last Feb. NOT fun. DS is sick, too, so homeschooling is out the window. Bright side: I'm not really hungry (though I did eat breakfast and drink coffee to avoid a hunger or caffeine headache). Down side: I'm not interested in water, either, so I feel bloaty. Ugh.

So here is a silly thing, but anyways. I just realized that I am not morbidly obese per my BMI anymore. it has dropped 3 points. It is silly but the more ways I can measure my success, the more motivated I am to stick with it. Looking in the mirror doesn't help a lot because I can't *see* the changes. I can tell because my pants are getting looser though. Lol

And a PS. They changed the WW app and I don't like it. It is much more difficult to get to my usual foods and I have to scroll through a ton of stuff to find it. Boo.

Yay Jess, glad to see it wasn't as bad as you thought. I will never weigh in in jeans

That's how it was for me this last time, it finally clicked! You can and WILL do it!

I have been sick for the last two days, fever of about 101.7. My body aches from head to toe. I don't think I've had a fever in 10 years. Hope it goes away soon. Since I was sick no official weigh in at my meeting but at home I'm down 3lbs.

Hope you're feeling better soon. I'd take that weight loss; congratulations!

I had a non scale victory tonight. My DD swims from 7-9:00ish almost every night and we leave home at about 6:40. It's hard enough for me to feed her before we leave (she's a vegetarian and often eats something different that what i eat) and I have been eating when I get back home at 8:30-9:45. I was planning to have pasta with a couple of meatballs but it occurred to me that pasta the night before a weigh in was stoopid. I was shopping at Costco so I pondered the limited restaurant menu and resisted the pizza and the hot dog and ordered the chicken caesar salad. I did eat about half the dressing but not all of it . Wish me luck tomorrow! I hope tonight's choice helps.

Isn't that a great feeling to finally have once again? Congrats on crossing that 30 lb mark.

I was shocked when I discovered how many points was in a single hotdog (and I wasn't even looking at the roll and toppings). I hope the salad choice was a good one for you. Let us know how your WI goes today.

I'm back from my WI. I went to the earlier one since my DD wanted to be at school early. I put on my lightest jeans to transition to fall and was happy to see a 3 lb weight loss! I tracked every single thing this week, including my 64 point Saturday (damn those Badger football games!). I earned 24 AP and was still over my limit by 28 points. I can now look back at that week and see where I went over (except for the Badger game and all that beer) and adjust this week for a better week of eating within my points.
