Okay. I could really use the "how to beat the night time munchies" lesson right now! I know it's the theme for next week, but . . .

I've brushed my teeth and crawled into bed, but the refrigerator is calling me. Must go to sleep. Good night all.

Well I tracked every single thing today even though I really really didn't want to. Getting a new hair style tomorrow will hopefully perk me up!

Right now, I'm thinking I could hard boil some eggs and eat those, or get some of the mini packs of almonds. (I think Greek Yogurt is high in protein, but I just don't like it.) Any other thoughts?
Check into shakeology. It works for me in the same way your asking for help. Keep some fresh fruit on hand, a pickle maybe. Or even some tuna packets...

I had my second 5K this past Saturday and I ran it in record time for me (34.04 mins). It felt so good so I was feeling really good at weigh in last night.....but I gained .8!!! I think I celebrated too much Saturday night, it was the only time I used my bonus points. Oh well, it's a new week starting today.

Thanks for all replies about protein, I did try Greek yogurt again yesterday, and I still don't like it at all. But, it did keep me full longer. I won't eat it much, but on days where I may have to go a longer period time without eating, I'll keep it in mind.

So now for good news, the good news and the bad news. First, today was my weigh in day and I stared in disbelief at the scale, I am down 5.2 this week! I am a daily weighed so I knew the numbers were going down, but there was a nice jump from yesterday so I was truly shocked. This is only my second full week, and last week was a .6, so I figured I'd see more pronounced progress this week but wowza!

The other good news is I head to Disney World today!!!!! The bad(ish) news is that I am still so close to the beginning of my journey, that I want to curb any gains as much as possible while still enjoying myself, and i'm apprehensive. I have a plan (breakfast in the room, fruit ad veggies or snacks) but I still want to eat and make good choices. I have combed through the menus for counter service, and am struggling to find the best choices. For example I thought the lighthouse sandwich would be a good choice in MK at Columbia harbor house (hummus, broccoli slaw on multigrain bread). By plugging it into the recipe builder it's 14 points! Am I really better, points wise, with a hot dog? Plus, the menus give good ideas but they don 't tell you if it tastes good!

Any food suggestions or other ideas!?

Congratulations on the loss. Have a great trip. I'm sorry I can't give any words of wisdom on sticking with WW at WDW because I don't get to try that for another 186 days.

I was going to be happy to break even this week after my birthday food choices (two crepes in one day is probably not a good idea). So I was real surprised when I was told I was down .8. Then I hear my daughter at the scale next to me told, "Good job, Joanna, down 4 lbs this week." She is down a total of 62 pounds now and she is looking good.

My other daughter quit WW online this week and is doing something called Live Strong (I'm not familiar with it, but she says she'd rather count calories than points).
Congratulations making your goal of 57 pounds by your 57th birthday! You are a real inspiration to all of us . Congratulations to your DD too! What little stinker to pass you up on your birthday week .

I haven't lost a lot of weight, but I'm amazed at the difference between a 24 and a 20-it will make packing for my weekend trip in 2 weeks a lot easier, since I am bringing a carry on. The pants are so much smaller!

Roasted some veggies tonight for lunch tomorrow. Bringing breakfast and lunch to work has been great for my food choices but also my pocketbook-the savings have almost paid for our gym membership!

Julia, you had a couple of GREAT non-scale victories! Give yourself a big pat on your back .

Congrats on the big loss! I posted a few weeks ago about the same worries, I've since downloaded as many of the menus as I could to my smart phone so I'm able to browse them while in line for a ride and we are deciding where to eat. I'm going to try and stick to simply filling, and save my WP's for my frozen bananas and Mickey Ice Creams. Just remember you are going to do a ton of walking, so you'll have some extra activity points too.

Yesterday was weigh-in day and I lost 1 pound bringing my weight loss to 16 pounds since June.

That 1 pound I lost is of the 3 pounds I had gained during vacation. So I'm 2 pounds away from my pre-vacation weight.

I am happy with the 1 pound lost, since it was really not easy to go back on track after my vacation and I did overeat a lot since coming home.

I am 33 pounds away from goal, and 8 pounds away from my 10% lost.

Have a great week everybody, and keep up the great work!!

I like Skinny Taste too! It's real food. I will also sometimes look at Hungry Girl, but she seems to be more of a pre-packaged Frankenfood shill than anything else. I still really like her Laughing Cow (tm) Alfredo.

It'll all work out over the next 2 or so weeks, I'm sure of that, but wowza, it's harder than I expected! (on the other hand, I'm doing so much better than in my sordid WW-quitting past, where I would let this throw me so much I'd quit and decide to gain it all back out of hatred of self...so there's that! )
I would probably just write down the scone with no points or I would estimate it the best that I could. It I wouldn't get all hung up on it. Write it down and own it and then move on. Congratulations on (1) hanging in there after a big weight gain and (2) getting right back to it without taking a few more "freebie" days.

I had an interesting couple of days. My Tuesday was 10 points over . I made tacos (which are perfectly OK and within my points) but I had a light beer with it. That one tasted so good, I ended up with two more. Oops. I made up for it yesterday, though. I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off and I missed making dinner before my DD needed to be at swimming at 7:00. So, I stopped by Noodles and Company for my DD but I had to drop off some closes at a consignment sale so I didn't get anything for me. I picked up my DD at 9:30 and I was ready to gnaw my arm off. I stopped at Culvers and I would usually buy a snack pack burger. I didn't ... I bought a Fresco salad with mango vinaigrette.

Let's just say I'm glad our bedrooms are on the second floor. I stayed away from the kitchen, but it took me forever to fall asleep.

Sometimes you just need a few beers! You're in Wisconsin for goodness sake -- isn't that like the state beverage!? Beer and Brats? Good job on the dinner choice. I didn't even know Culver's had salads. Good to know.

I have never liked plain yogurt, but I mix my Fage greek yogurt with half a serving of Trader Joes organic lowfat raspberry yogurt. Increases the points of the "meal", but for me it's really worth it. Sometimes I do half a serving of Fage, sometimes a full serving, sometimes in between, depending on the sweetness I want (I always do the same amount of raspberry) or the bulk of the food or how many points I have to spare.

That sandwich is absolutely delicious, at least to me and my hubby. 100% goodness.

I'm starting to rethink things the longer I'm back in WW, but before WW I would come home from DLR, WDW, and/or Universal with baggier pants simply because of all the walking. This did not work on our recent trip, because we were tired from the nasty colds we had gotten over, it was absolutely scorching hot, and then DH started to get the cold. Our days were slow and short, and it made a difference.

But normally, all the walking helps balance it out even when I'm not watching my food carefully.

Hopefully that will work out for you, too.

Oh, and it's worth thinking about if you would end up getting TWO hot dogs, if the one didn't fill you up...whereas you can get the sandwich and a side of broccoli from that restaurant, and have a fuller belly for longer.
