That is fantastic progress with the running. I am so not a runner, but have thought about starting the Couch to 5K program, in order to try to start running to increase my activity. Since you went from a non runner to someone who can run, any tips you can provide? I, just in my second week of WW and want to learn everything I can to improve my chances for success!

Did everyone enjoy their holiday? How did you stay on plan?
Great job, keep up the good work.

Welcome, congrats on your fabulous first week!

Just start out slowly...don't over do it! You know your body and it will tell you when you are pushing too hard....slow down and enjoy the walk/run.

Today was weigh in. I gained only .6. It was hard this week with my family in town. But back on the wagon today! I am hoping to make it to the gym 3 times this week when DH is home to watch DS. I have a half marathon in January, so I am hoping to back into shape.

I'm using the Cool Running program. I don't have a phone that accepts apps, so the fancier ones aren't of use to me, and I'd rather use my music anyway. So I write out what I'm doing that week, put it on the treadmill (with the exact times written out b/c I don't want to do math, not even "time" math, while I'm running!) and just do it.

Although I tend to be an "all or nothing" person (and the "nothing" is what got me to 80+ pounds overweight) but I'm trying to change that. Last week was the official week 3, but my lungs were still just dying at the end...so this week I repeated Week 3 and I feel GREAT for having done that.

Now, I'll admit that I used to be a runner, but that was a long, long time ago, and back then I mainly ran to keep our dog healthy or b/c my rowing coach made me run. This is the first self-directed running time.



Today's WI I gained .2. I was due the gain, since it's only my 2nd gain since February! And I think it's TOM, so even more expected.

I think you're making great progress!! I totally relate to the all or nothing way of thinking. You have a great attitude about your small weight gain it will be off before you know it!!

I too was up 80lbs. I'm down 24.2 and made my 10% this week !! I lost 1.4 and landed at exactly 200 lbs!! I mean, really, I couldn't have lost just another .2!! Just kidding- I'm happy with my progress - slow and steady. This weekend has been a struggle. I bought the WW mini pizzas and the triple chocolate i.c.bars. Even though they're WW products, I've been overeating them. Starchy foods & i.c. are my weaknesses and I think I'll do better to avoid them for a while . So, they're out of the house now and I'm off to workout - have a great day everyone!!

Thank you! Gains in my past WW attempts threw me off course, and I'm really trying to accept them this time. I know I did nothing "wrong", it's just biology, right? And even if I had done something wrong, hopefully I enjoyed it, LOL. I've really been looking to my brother and sister in law for inspiration. They've never been overweight, but they go up and down by small amounts. If a pair of pants is tighter, they take care of that *immediately*, and not by buying new pants or deciding that the dryer shrunk the pants! They face it, change something (exercise more and/or eat less), and deal with it. So if they can accept the occasional gain, so can I!


Congrats on the 10%! It's so exciting!

I like your brother and sister-in-law's way of thinking. That is inspiring! Something a friend of mine used to do that couldn't have chocolate also inspires me. If she was somewhere that was serving something chocolate that she really wanted, she would watch someone else eat it (discreetly of course). She would think, "There's the first bite, tastes so good but that sure was fast. Second bite, yummm, well that didn't last long." And so she would go until the very last bite, "Well, that was quick, it's already gone. I missed about two minutes of pleasure." With that perspective, it is fairly easy to think to myself, "Well, I'll only enjoy it for two minutes, so I'll just skip those two minutes."

Interesting way of doing things! Sounds like it works; I'll keep it in the back of my mind for those extra-tempting times when I don't have the points for something! (February cruise perhaps?) I definitely know I'm more picky now. I want to *love* what I eat. Ha, it's like Anton Ego, or whatever the the name of the food critic from Ratatouille is. Only eat what you love!

Okay, I finally braved the scales today...haven't weighed for two weeks, because I was off work last week and use the scales at work. Anyway, because of stress and other roadblocks, I was really scared to face the scales today.

Down 1 pound, yay!!
