I gained 1.2 lbs the week before Disney and while at Disney I gained 2 lbs.

This week I lost 1.8 lbs!

I only have 1.4 lbs to lose to get back to my 46 lbs mark. No problem, I enjoy the program and I know I can get back to were I need to be. I'm back into size 10 pants so that means a lot!

My next 5K is this Saturday. I haven't been able to get to the gym because of injuries and sickness so I don't think my time will be any quicker than my time in April. The important thing to remember is that I can finish it!

I was down 1.2 yesterday! That's 2.9lbs of Disney weight off! I have 3.6 more to go. This week will be challenging, though. DS turns 11 today -- I have to bake his birthday cake this afternoon. Then this weekend is the Canadian Thanksgiving. We'll be at my FIL's for 3 meals. I'm going to eat maintenance points (35pts) on Sunday and try to have 15 WP's available so hopefully, I'll be fine.

A few pages ago, someone asked about eating weekly points and activity points. I do eat my weekly points -- every single one of them. Last week I ate 28 daily points (usually I eat 29), ate all of my weekly points (plus 9 more) and was down 1.2. It's unusual for me to earn activity points but when I do, I don't eat them.

Have a great day, Everyone! It's so nice to see so many people joining the thread!

So yesterday. Not a great points day! I haven't read through the whole thread so I'm not sure if others are dealing with this too, but I can be a bit of a binge eater and I'm trying to break that cycle. Yesterday afternoon I apparently lost my mind and had two very high points snacks even as I was telling myself "Don't do it! Don't do it!"
I had a long talk with myself last night and tried to talk myself down from the self-loathing that seems to occur after such episodes and told myself 'tomorrow is a fresh start'. I feel much more sane today.

I was just listening to a podcast (Half Size Me) and heard something I had to immediately write down:

Its not about being perfect, its about being persistent.

Love that.

Thanks for letting me share.

Greetings! I'm not new to WW or to the Dis...but I am new to this forum!

I lost 70 pound 11 years ago on WW at home...kept it off for six years, but have slowly been inching up over the last five, since I quit smoking. I have restarted about 5 or 6 times in the last five years but have not stuck with it. This time I am committed to get back to goal!

My goal weight is 147, and I started a week and a half ago at 194.5, and I am down 1.7 as of this morning. (Thursday is my weigh in day, but I started on Monday.)

The thing that had derailed me each and every time these last five years is vacation...and I leave for a long Disney weekend, a week from today...which is how I found you all. My goal for this trip is to make smart choices and TRACK everything. I think the lack of tracking is where I have fallen down in the past. I am also only going to allow myself to have alcohol one night, as that tends to be a trigger on vacation too.

Thank you for letting me share, this forum seems so welcoming!

Thanks for the thought. I'm another with the same problem.

I'm there with you. I'll binge on anything, not just bad stuff. I'm trying to focus on "enough" and knowing satiation versus the desire to feel "full." I love the idea of "persistence, not perfection." I, too, have trouble with the eat-guilt cycle.

I'll have to look into the podcast -- it sounds good! We can do this!

Well, I've had a weird week -- in meetings we were supposed to focus on tracking this week, and it's the worst one I've had so far in terms of tracking. I kept an eye out, and did all right -- down 2.0, in spite of not tracking (and not walking -- it's been a weird week).

I went to a different meeting during my lunch hour (taking an hour and a half, so that I could attend the meeting). I forced myself to walk the 1.2 miles each way, and it actually felt really good to be moving. Now I'm back and have a Trader Joe's salad I really don't feel like eating. Have I said that it's been a weird week?

So, down a total of 32.6! Onward and downward!

I have a meeting out of town this week -- leave tomorrow, back Tuesday. I need to weigh in again on Thursday next week because we're going out of town for the weekend, so that should keep me in line while I'm gone!

It really is a great podcast. I just found it a couple of weeks ago. The woman has lost 170 pounds on weight watchers and is 'paying it forward'. She does a lot of interviews with others who have lost a lot weight and gives reports on how she is doing. Very positive.

And woohoo on losing over 30 pounds! And despite a weird week!
My first weigh in is this Saturday.

Just wanted to let you know that my favourite low fat cook book is now available in the States through Amazon. It has lots of amazing recipes and good advice/tips in it.

http://www.amazon.com/The-Looneyspoo...ons+collection

They list the nutrition facts in all of their recipes as well. This is the book that has the Tex Mex Lasagna and the Stuffed Peppers recipes that I posted the other day.

It's an excellent book! I use it a couple of times a week. Here's the link to their Facebook page as well.

I really really love this cookbook!

Holy cow have I been craving sweets! It's so annoying! No amount of water, distractions, fruit, etc will cure it. I was like this yesterday too. I started to drink Crystal lite again and I think there is a connection. Sticking with plain water from now on!

So I gained last this week and I'm still blaming it on my BBQ last weekend. But I "started over" and have been tracking religiously and nothing is moving. I'm one that weighs myself every day. It is a comfort kind of thing. Plus watching the scale move motivates me. So of course my next thought was, "it's not moving, why not eat?" Um, duh.

So I'm experimenting with using my weeklies. I was only using a handful of them each week, always less than 10. I never touched my APs either. So now I'm using some of my weeklies every day. So I will see if I can lose like that too.

One of my problems is that there was an error in ordering my thyroid pill so I've been out for a week. I hate mail order meds btw... Talk about having no energy or motivation to do anything! I called up and threw a little fit so they are expediting them for me. This is probably why I feel so blah lately.
