Hello!

I started WW this past Saturday and after scratching my head at the Community section on their eTools website, I was relieved to see a group of folks on the WISH boards.

I'd love to join in on your group as I'm trying to take stronger steps towards weight loss than I've tried in the past and one of those steps is surrounding myself with like-minded people.

I'm trying to lose between 60 and 70 pounds but just focusing on the first 5% to start with.

Welcome!! I often go to their boards, but it's pretty confusing, and threads just move on -- it doesn't go to the top when people post to them, so the conversation just gets lost.

Had my WI this morning, down 1.4 for a total of 9.6 lbs in 6 weeks! I can't wait to get my ribbon! I'm sure I will get it next week!

I think the exact same way. I just didn't see it -- I never thought of myself as morbidly obese, just overweight. But I guess with 120+ pounds to lose, that was my reality. My daughters are quick to look at me and say, "Mom, that shirt goes in the giveaway pile. Don't wear it again. You look so much better when you wear clothes that fit."

I don't want this to sound mean, but you are only hurting yourself by not tracking. Don't let these irritations control you!

What a great compliment! I saw an old co-worker last week who really had a lot to say about people's weight behind their backs and I had to think, "Timmy boy, look at me now." I have to admit that I put a little sway in my hips and stood a little taller when I walked away. LOL.

Welcome aboard! My dd who is doing WW online is very active in the community section but I just didn't care for it. The gang here has been a great source of encouragement for me since I joined them. And we can talk Disney and nobody rolls their eyes.

I'm sure it's a matter of just spending time to catch the rhythm of the WW boards but I'm not really on long enough to 'get it'. The Dis feels like home so this is perfect!

Well WI was today and I showed a gain of a little over 2 pounds. I knew I was going to be up so time to buckle down. I think I'm getting sick too so it should be an interesting week. I will do better next week. Hope everyone is having a great day!

Question to those more experienced at WW than I:

Do you use your Weekly Points at all? Do you have any opinion on that? I do use my activity points most days so far, partly because I'm still getting used to staying within my points each day.

Same here! I had 116 pounds to lose when I started. That's more than just a little overweight. Funny you should mention that about your shirts. As I write this, I am wearing pants that are going in the giveaway pile. I was rushing this morning and grabbed these. I look ridiculous!

I don't, but they are there for you to use! I sometimes have trouble using my daily points, so of I used more, it would be too much for me.

You can send me some extras lol! It is rare that I have any daily points left and if I do, an Oreo or two fix that! They are my weakness!

I don't officially track my weeklies, but if I have a slice of birthday cake, extra slice of pizza, etc i keep that in mind when eating the rest of the week.
