That seems very doable Robin. A Thanksgiving goal is great. I'm right there with you!

I celebrated 50 lbs today. Hit it last week, but didn't have my normal leader and I wanted to wait.

Today was the Very First Time I weighed in wearing normal pants (although still lightweight) instead of exercise shorts, though I still wore the lightest top possible (which is a normal top). I also wore socks (the CA meetings I attended where bare feet weren't allowed really messed with my head, LOL). Woo! A precedent has been set. Next step to work towards is eating before the meeting.

Oh and today I had the fabled .2 loss. Loss is a loss is a loss, I'll take it!

On my dd's card they noted "jeans" on her WI. I won't eat before my meeting simply because after the meeting I go and get Auntie Anne's pretzels for dh and I (9 points). I save my points on WI day for that pretzel. Never knew they were so tasty until I joined WW!

I keep wondering whether the 4.6 loss last week was accurate. My scale at home and the one at WW are pretty close. I weigh every morning at home, and I never got close to the weight from last week's WI.

Oh well, onward for next week! Tracked everything for today, with dinner pre-planned, and have 2 APs so far -- I plan on 6 more throughout the day.
Man, I hate weigh ins like that ... when you do everything right and still gain. I think that when that happens you need to look at the big picture and how much you have lost in the last couple months and convince yourself it's just a fluke. {{hugs}}

Ah! The proverbial "stick of butter" loss. Like you said, it's still a loss . I admit that I also dig through my closet for a lightweight top and I now have my "weigh-in" jeans ... I also bough a couple pairs of super light weight socks at Marshall's.

Congratulations! That is so exciting to hit two milestones in one weigh-in!

pwdebbie, thanks for the heads up on this thread!

My goal is to lose 15 to 20 pounds by May. I am stuck at a plateau, where I seem to yo-yo up and down 3 pounds. I've increased exercise, and 0 point foods to try to help with it.

Welcome! Your goal certainly seems achievable. You might want to try to shake it up a little in terms of the number of points you use per day. I had a gain this week and looked at my quite boring tracker -- I've gotten into quite the daily rut.

Google the Wendie plan and see if it might work for you -- the thought behind it is to use fewer points one day, more the next, etc., keeping your metabolism guessing as to what's next.

Best wishes, and, again, welcome!

Thanks for the welcome and the tip. I'm sure the F&W festival isn't helping either.

Under the old WW plan I was only allowed 19 points a day. Since it changed to the new plan, it shows I'm allowed 26. Maybe a reassement might help too?

Hello, I've read *most* of this thread and am so inspired by your successes and support. I'd love to join you here. Here's the unabridged (sorry it's so long) version of my life:

I'm 38, married with a 13 year old and an almost 2 year old. I've always struggled with my weight, but kept it to a reasonable plump level (size 10 on a 5'3" frame) because I love to exercise as much as I love to eat! After my first son, I gained about 30 lbs and held on to it. During the struggle to get and stay pregnant with my second son (a five year process), I gained another 30 pounds (my high was around 235). I have done Weight Watchers a few times, but never got to goal.

In 2010, I decided my weight was part of my reduced fertility, so through focusing on whole, healthy foods, I lost about 30lbs, got down to 205 and got (and stayed!) pregnant. I had gestational diabetes, which I successfully controlled with a low carb diet. I ended up gaining no weight during the pregnancy and had a healthy 8lb 2oz baby boy . Right after the delivery, I was down to 175, but I managed to gain 30lbs AGAIN during the first six months of DS's life. I wasn't eating great, but I truly believe I get some strange hormone problems after delivery because the same thing happened the first time with DS#1.

When he turned one, I decided to get the weight off. I started walking 3x a week and signed up for the Princess Half Marathon a full year later (only 4 months away now!!). I went on the South Beach Diet since I was used to low carb eating and lost about 30lbs. Then I got stuck. I've been around 173-177 for about 3 months now. And I've ramped up my training to run/walk intervals up to 6.2 miles on the weekend and 3-4 miles on weekdays (still 3x a week). I don't think the low carb diet was giving me the energy I needed to get those long workouts done.

So, I decided (based on some other threads on WISH) to give WW another try. I'm doing the online version because there are no meetings that work for me due to time or location. So, the support and accountability on this thread seem like a great fit for me.

So, I'm down about 30lbs since February and my goal is to lose another 40lbs. I'm currently 6 lbs away from going from obese to overweight, and when I get there I'm buying myself another running skirt and a garmin watch. I've got my first 10k in over a decade scheduled for Thanksgiving and I'd love to be under 170 by then (six lbs in a month seems reasonable). And if I could be down to 158 by the Princess Half Marathon in February I would be thrilled. But honestly, any downward movement on the scale is going to be awesome.

I'm still nursing DS#2 (mainly in the evenings and at night) but since he's 22 months old I wasn't sure whether or not to say I was nursing since it's not a lot and certainly isn't his main source of energy - I work full time and don't pump anymore or anything. I went ahead and marked that I was, and I get a ton of points, so I may try it at that level and then back it down some if I'm not seeing progress... I'm weaning him in January, so I guess this is just a temporary issue anyways.

Sorry again for the novel!! And, I agree that Halloween Oreos are of the devil! I bought a package today as a "goodbye" present to bad eating!

Well, now, I have to say that I have NEVER worn a size 10. I'm 5'3" also. My mom was in the hospital often and I was living with Italian aunts (Eat! Eat! What, you don't like my cooking? I made this just for you! Eat!) off and on between third and sixth grade. I remember at one point my grandmother took me shopping because all my clothes were too small and that was when I went from kids size into juniors (do they even sell junior size anymore?) -- junior size 13. From there it was to size 14 and that's what I wore through high school. I will be happy to see size 14 again! (I just bought new pants, size 16, so 14 is actually in sight!)

Thanks! Probably a few more times. But no plans to go back this week.

Congrats on losing 30 pounds!!

I'm a shorty too, 4'11''. I've gone from a size 14 to a 12.

That's great, you are getting close!

I was the opposite. I had a very high metabolism as a kid. I graduated from high school weighing just under 80 pounds and could eat anything in sight. Now I smell something yummy and put on a pound, lol. That pumpkin spice funnel cake at Epcot was a set back, even sharing it 3 ways.

We do have a nice visit to Starbucks after WI (it's right up the street), but the meeting is at 10:30, we're a chatty bunch and often visit after the meeting, and so sometimes we aren't stepping into Sbx until noon. A banana in the morning would be nice, but it's a mental hurdle!

Remember that they changed the way they calculate points in foods, so in a big way it's a wash. For me it's a mental thing; under 20 sounded like a death sentence to me before, but 26 sounds like I have more choices in a day to get to that point. Of course, this time I'm doing Weekly and Activity as well, so that's more choices as well.

Up until fourth grade, I was one of the tallest in the class and one of the skinniest. People actually worried about me because I was so skinny. All that changed in fourth grade when I, shall we say, matured. I was the first of my friends to experience everything and my aunts really didn't know how to deal with it as they had never had children.
