Sam did have a happy 11th birthday on Thursday. Thanks for remembering, Stephanie! We took him to a fall fair in Saturday. It was lots of fun but it was freezing! As for Thanksgiving...well, I'm going to be up this week.

Have a good one!

I'll go with the weather is changing . I did good all day yesterday. It was raining an the high was 48 degrees. Had a great in points chicken dinner planned. With the weather being so yucky in the middle if the afternoon I scratched the chicken dinner and made a pot of chili and biscuits........ Non-WW friendly . It did it the spot though.

I wanted to do a trip report for our trip to Disney World last month. I took lots of notes while I was there and now I have a 30+ page Word document. I know some of you on this thread have done TR's before and I'm wondering if you would mind sharing how you decided what information to put in your report. I want to add pictures as well and my TR will be just way too long by the time it's finished if I leave it the way it is. I'd appreciate hearing any tips you've got.

One thing I was thinking that I could do is write a Trip Report and a Dining Report but I'm thinking that I'm not as good at describing food and how it tasted and what everyone's reaction was like some of the writers are.

Maybe like Disney it won't be as bad as you think. I usually cook for thanksgiving but it's just the four of us. We were going to go to Washington DC for thanksgiving but DD wants to stay home so I can cook and do all our thanksgiving traditions. Then since my dad is doing better I asked if my parents would like to come down from NJ. Since my dad can no longer drive we will fly them here. So, I will have a house full this year which probably means more food than normal.

Thanksgiving wasn't the problem for me it was all the chocolate cake that I had in the house!

I'm happy your dad is doing better. I agree with your daughter. I'd rather have Thanksgiving at home too. Since your guests will be from out of town, you'll likely be doing all the preparation and cooking right? So...you can decide how many points things will be. You should get through it without any problem!

I don't do trip reports but I do read some, so I'll give you my opinions, if you don't mind.

I like trip reports that give just a day or half day at a time posted every few days. That gives us followers a chance to comment and for the OP to respond. There are some trip reports I have been following for months.

Some people like to change the names of the family members, others don't. That doesn't really matter to me. But I do like a brief intro to the people who are on the trip so I feel like I "know" them.

Since you would be writing from a WW perspective, I think your daily food pics would fit right in with the flow of your TR (instead of doing a separate report).

There's my thoughts, for what they are worth.

I have not been struggling with food (in fact my weekend was better than it usually is), but I have been struggling with exercise because I have been sick and got out of the habit. BUT ... I walked 45 minutes today. I think I need to come up with another option once it gets really cold. I may just drive right to the YMCA after dropping my DD off at school.

I don't spend a lot of time on the trip report boards, so I usually prefer the ones that are indexed at the beginning so I can just see some of the highlights if that's all I have time for.

For the dining report, don't worry too much about the words, pictures speak volumes! Rating systems are also good when it comes to food.

If you end up doing a trip report, please make sure you give us the link! We all love to live vicariously though others .

I appreciate you're opinion, pwdebbie. I also like the ones that post a little bit at a time, too. I was thinking mine would be really long but if you've been following some for months, then perhaps not. I plan on doing an intro of us as well, but your comment about doing it from a weight watchers perspective made me smile. I gained 6.5 pounds remember??

Thank you! I would love to do one that's indexed but I don't know how. Those also happen to be my favourite TR's to read since I dont post on them normally. I do have lots of food pictures to include. I think I may have taken more pictures of our food than anything else!

I'll definitely post a link to my report. And I know what you mean, Robin. Sometimes I almost drool all over the keyboard.

I was thinking of you while we were at the fall fair on Saturday. There was a poutine vendor there and I know you like that. I've never tried it.

I have been having such trouble lately that I wanted a fresh start TODAY. So, I went to WW to do my WI and face the ugly music. I was telling one of my favorite receptionists how I was frustrated and needed a new beginning. She explained that they could "re-set" me so that today's weight would be my starting weight, that I would get a new book starting with today, and that I wouldn't see, on paper or e-tools, the gain I've had over the last few weeks. I said "sign me up!" I've been doing this round of WW for a few years and never thought to really start over.

I am now 11 pounds from goal. I think this fresh start is just what I need to move in the right direction again. I'm crossing my fingers anyway!

Congrats to all the losers and to the maintainers -- and everyone else who is trying!!! Let's do this thing.
