Yay! Good job! Never be afraid! The worst that can happen is you'll gain. If you do, figure out what you could have done differently and move on! Setbacks can teach us a lot. This is a marathon, not a sprint, y'all!


Thank you for your positive comments, everyone!

Hello , My name is Jess and I just joined weight watchers on June 6th, 2012!!

My starting weight was 185.4, as of today - I weighed in at 172.3 = 13.1lbs lost!!!

Reason I started was I got married in May and saw those wedding pictures clearly the wedding stress got the best of my body.

I don't have a goal weight yet, but I hope to be right around 135/140 by the end of this. I can't wait to see what I can accomplish!

Can't wait to chat with everyone one here

I downloaded the app and started today. I think it is a program I can stick with. I was feeling a little intimidated thinking about the running part, but I just took it slow and it actually felt really good. Of course, it was just week 1, day 1, so I'm looking forward to see what kind of progress I make over the next few weeks. Thanks for the tip!

Glad you weighed in! Next time, WI regardless! If you were up 2 weeks ago, sure it would hurt a bit, BUT then you would know exactly what you lost after the gain.

Just keep going!



Today I start the official week 4 of the C25K. Even though I've been running more than week 3 said to, simply because it felt good while running, I'm a little scared of week 4!

Hi everyone! I have just finished reading the 2nd WW thread that was huge but very motivating! I have rejoined online WW and am really looking forward to making some real changes in my life. This time I am dragging my husband along in the journey. He isn't happy about it but he just had a dr appt a few weeks ago that showed his blood pressure and cholesterol are up and he is now prediabetic.

Soo.... I told him he is at a fork in the road. Change his health for the better and live a happier, healthier life, or travel down the road he is on and most likely die young. Harsh, but necessary. Otherwise he would have just ignored me as he has for the last few years.

We signed up together a couple weeks ago and have been tracking our weight but waited until after our summer bbq to start tracking points. So today was my second WI and I am down 1.6 lbs for a total of 5.2. Not bad considering the minimal changes I have made. The difficult part is going to be once I go back to school in the fall and the kids activities pick up. Right now I am just taking it one day, one meal at a time.

I am proud of my husband too. He is whining but today he tracked all of his breakfast points without me! Sounds silly, but that is a huge victory for us. :

I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you and joining you on this journey!

Mindy

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.
Don't sweat that .2 your doing great.

Wow Mindy that was a lot of reading! Welcome to you and your husband. Good luck, as a busy mom myself you just have to take the time and plan meals, have easy to grab snacks. If you take time to do this there will be less drive thru runs.

I bought a julienne peeler the other day. I made zucchini noodles with it. They came so good, thought I'd share.

Thanks for sharing! I have been wanting to try that!

I had a BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad with cheese and it was only 6 points!

About 1/3 of the meeting I attend is made up of couples. I was surprised to see that many men in attendance, but they all jump right in and participate as much as the women. If your dh needs the extra male support in the future, you might want to look at attending the meetings.

Down 1 lb at WI last night. Dd was down 3.2! AND she passed on to me all her too-big summer clothes, two sizes smaller than what I wore last summer) and they fit me! (If only I liked her style -- I love color and she likes drab. Plus all the capris are cargo-style, which I told her will be great for Disney, but not really something I like for daily wear at 56 years old, lol.)

Lost another DP, down to 27 now. Last week was my first week using the WPs almost daily instead of saving them for one big meal (and I only had those big meals three or four times since joining in March). I KNOW they want me to fill up my plate with lots of fruits and veggies, but physically I NEED proteins. I can do without the carbs, but my body has been geared to protein-rich foods for years now. And "protein" bars just don't do it for me. If I don't start my day with protein (eggs, cheese, breakfast meat) I will be edgy and wanting to nibble anything I can get my hands on for the rest of the day.

My oldest dd has also joined WW but she is doing it online. She did Medifast for the first four months of the year, switched to counting calories, then took a week vacation which extended to several weeks of not worrying about what she ate, so now she has signed up for WW. She honestly doesn't have the time to attend meetings (I think she is too busy already and should cut other things from her schedule). She says she hates tracking and counting points AND that she has a hard time eating all her points, so I suggested she try Simply Filling. I'm sure she has a physical problem that causes her to be overweight but no doctors have ever figured it out. They say that if all they saw was her numbers (heart rate, pulse, blood work results) they would think they were looking at a well-trained athlete. And then they see her weight (which was 250+ before starting Medifast) and tell her she needs to diet. Well, yeah! But the girl can run for miles, bike for miles, and does workout videos every other day. She is physically fit, but she carries excess weight. Even an endocrinologist dismissed her and said she would just have to learn to live on 800 calories a day.
