That's awesome! It's those times when you notice those changes that really help keep you going

Sandi! You look so much better than that cake could possibly taste!

Awwww. Jessie, you're so sweet.

My aunt made the cake from scratch. It's peppermint, DD's favorite, with pink buttercream icing. With MSU dairy store vanilla ice cream, it really can't be beat. Good thing I'm at my office now and far, far away from the cupboard!

DD turned 18 today. I can't believe how fast that time went.

Keahgirl -- Wow! 80 is just one trip to the bathroom away!

I went early today -- and thought that since I was going in the morning I would have a better loss than I usually do (I usually go to a 5:30 pm meeting). Well, that sure wasn't the case. Down .4 today. Also hit 32 weeks today. And I am finally under 200, officially Onederland.

I did have a put-a-big-grin-on-my-face moment. Last week I realized that I did not have a single pair of black pants to wear for this winter. So I went shopping today. In March I was wearing tight 22s. In the beginning of the summer I bought one pair of shorts, size 18, that I really thought I should have gotten in a 16 because they seem to have been cut so big. And I've been wearing hand-me-down jeans in size 16. But I honestly thought 18 was a better size for me. So I went into the dressing room with four pair of size 18 black pants -- all TOO BIG! Swapped them for 16s and bought one pair, the only pair that was short enough for me. Size 16 -- I cannot remember wearing a size 16 for at least 25 years! Back in the 80s might have been the last time I wore 16s. Woo-Hoo!

What's funny is that being a 12, I just realized I can now officially shop in "regular" stores. Sometimes at 14 you can waver between Misses & Women's / Plus.. but not at a 12. I almost cried in the fitting rooms last night at TJ Maxx and Target...and for once it was going to be a GOOD cry. When I'm at goal I think I might be an 8. I have not been a single digit in 10 years and it was only 1 dress that was a single digit. I have to remember to be as grateful as I am right now whenever that happens.

This is something I want to pass on to everyone here to do for themselves. Every NSV or SV, shouldn't be taken lightly. FEEL GOOD ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE DOING. FEEL PROUD OF YOURSELF. BE GRATEFUL AND HAPPY YOU STARTED, and RESTARTED and even if this is your 10th or 100th time-- be proud you are headed in the right direction!

Now: Take a minute to breathe and let it sink in - just how far you have come. Share it here. Do NOT be ashamed to be proud of yourself for doing something great just for you. It's so easy to be proud of someone else. Take a minute to feel that feeling for you today.

Whether you are up .5 or whatever, remember that feeling. Remember how far you have come and STILL BE PROUD.

Some of you may not have an issue with doing this but I was raised not to be proud of myself- weird, right? It was bragging, being too full of oneself--always something negative. I'm not saying I'm screaming "I'm AWESOME!" from the rooftops every morning... but I think I deserve to be proud every once in awhile and I know all of you here do too. So if you were raised like I was-- I am giving you permission to be proud of yourself. My WW leader & my husband have given me permission to be as well so I figured I'd pass it on.
Thanks for listening to my little rant. I am so grateful I have you all here to write to
Amazing! So glad for you...you should be proud and celebrate!!!

This sounds really good! Is it the one on the weight watchers site?

I liked what you've said -- I put my weight loss in perspective for my husband -- I've lost 37.2 lbs, which was nearly the same as my suitcase that I packed for my trip last week (he brought it downstairs and put it in the cab for me). His eyes got really wide!
I once walked around the grocery store with a friend of mine who was trying to lose weight (back in my thinner days) we went to the baking section and lifted bags of flour and sugar to see what a poi8nd, 5 pounds and 10 pounds felt like. Perspective is always a powerful thing!

That sweet victory will be here soon....but remember the .2 to get to 79.8 are just as important as the .2 needed to get 80!

Just back from WDW!

I did some things really well, and some things not so well. When I got on the scale this morning I was up 3 pounds. The big difference this time, is I got right back on the horse this morning and did not let it affect me mentally.

I have two days til weigh in. I'm not sure what it will bring, but I do think that I will have lost a little bit of that three pounds. Staying at my daily points minimum AND drinking plenty of fluids.

On a non WW related note: I was able to score an AP preview to Fantasyland when we go back in November!!!

WI today. I have not been faithful in tracking my points for about the last 2 weeks. I have continued to weigh in weekly and have not let my eating habits completely go. I've wanted to go crazy and eat everything in sight and although I ate more than I would have if I was tracking, I didn't eat everything I wanted to. Honestly my goal was to just remain the same weight until I could get my feet back under me again. I'm in graduate school and it is kicking my butt right now. I figured if I could maintain until the end of the semester I would pick up where I left off.

Sooooo anyway. Today I weighed in and was down 2.2 pounds. I was definitely surprised. I'm still a little over a pound above my 10% (which I had gotten to 3 weeks ago) but I'm very happy that the changes I have made have stuck with me. I'm probably still no going to go full force until the semester is over, but I will do my best.

Isn't it an amazing feeling to get back into the program so fast?

Continuing to weigh in is fabulous! And congrats on the surprise loss.

That's not a bad gain for being at WDW and kudos for you getting back on the plan.

Did you get to see any of Fantasyland while you were there? I'm wondering what will be different for the preview.

I didn't go to Magic Kingdom this trip even though I had originally intended to.

This is my first AP event. I am wondering if they will make it special in some way.
