I use my weekly points but usually do not use my activity points. If you're hungry, you should use them. Sometimes I really need a protein to make me feel full and the zero point fruits and veggies just don't help.

If I can do this, YOU can do this!!!!

RE: using the extra points--sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. It seems if I'm traveling, I use them--but the extra food is usually offset by additional activity while traveling.

I am not a techie impaired gal--but I find the eTools/Community Board on the WW site very difficult to use. I like seeing my weight loss chart and use the point calculator sometimes.

The Dis WW group is a fantastic bunch of supportive people.

Good luck, alizesmom, on your journey.

I use them all. Added the weeklies in early on and had better success than without them. Later when I got serious about exercising and got a heart rate monitor, I began an experiment with eating my APs. That experiment went for a month and I found I could eat those, too. I makes me so happy to have all those points! I'm a volume eater, and I do NOT like feeling deprived (that feeling caused me to quit on each of my first three WW attempts). So they are very good for me to have. And with the ACtivity points, if I'm not earning activity, find I don't even want or need them, so they really work out. Like I was sick for almost two weeks, and wasn't hungry for the extras while I was not going to the gym.




We are at Disneyland now, and we went to a meeting at the center on Lincoln last Saturday. The leader was SO fun! I enjoyed her meeting so much I felt like I was cheating on my home leader, lol. Helped that I lost another nice chunk, and it helped more that DH finally finished his plateau and is at a "this time through WW" low! He is very close to the next "decade" as well as his long awaited, hard fought 20%. Then again, we are odd and almost don't want to get those next milestones on this trip (we will still be in town for the next meeting as well) because our home leader gets so sad when we hit the milestones without her!

How cool that you went to a meeting on vacation! That wouldn't have even occurred to me. 😊

Hi everyone! My name is Stephanie and Im just joining in on this thread! Its great to find a nice group of WW buddies! ;0) This is my 2nd go around on WW. Ive been on it 2 mnths now. I don't go to meetings, I just use the etools and the handy app on my phone. Im also doing Shakeology and the Turbo Fire program. I have lost 20lbs and 17.5" since Aug 3!

I LOVE WW because it really is a way of life. All of my heartburn is completely gone (i was living on antacids) , I no longer have cravings, I eat when Im hungry. Ive also found that if I cheat every couple of weeks, it jump starts my weight loss again! Anyhow, just thought Id say hey! Good luck everyone! :0)

Good WI last night. Down 2.6 for a total loss of 56.4 in 30 weeks. My newest self-imposed goal was to be 57 pounds off by 10/5 (my 57th birthday) which I don't think will happen simply because we are going to see my parents (who live near Ocean City, MD) for the next few days. The last visit resulted in a gain, so I hope not to repeat that this time. I'm still not officially in "onederland" even though my home scale has had me there for the last fourteen days.

The moment of truth this morning! After 2 weeks of being on vacation and then sick, it's time to weigh-in. I gained 3 pounds. Bringing me back to a 15 pounds weight loss.

I am still happy with that, I knew I would gain some back, but I am sure I will lose those extra pounds in the next few weeks. I am just happy to be back to tracking and exercising! And I did enjoy my vacation very much!!

Have a good week everyone!

The WI I'm scared of is this coming weekend, LOL. The first one was pretty normal, no theme park eating yet. But it's fun to meet new leaders and experience different meetings. I remember a few months ago someone ranting on WW message boards about how they weren't a child and didn't need fishy stickers, and she confused everyone...after all, what's a fishy sticker? Well, during DH's last work trip, he went to a meeting in MO, and instead of Bravo stickers, they gave fish stickers!

Plus, in our past attempts at WW, skipping meetings was ALWAYS the beginning of the end, so even when it's painful, we go if we can.

Down a whopping 3.6 this week for a total of 37.4!!! Woot!

This after 5+ weeks of less than one lb loss per week! Just the motivation I needed.

That's fabulous! Great job!

And yes Molly, I think attending meetings is going to be very important to my success. I've been stuggling with weightloss for years and need to get this!
