My fruit/veggie consumption has plummeted, as has my healthy oils...and I think that at some point here my body will say "no" to more losses until I can eat at home more often. It's just such a challenge to do this!

I tried to convince myself to eat one meal with veggies, but that didn't always work out for me. I'm glad that you are still able to maintain a healthy weight loss and still deal with the stress of being a caregiver without chowing down .

That is totally doable!

Anybody else done that before?
Congratulations on losing 20 lbs! Whoo hoo! Personally, I would step down to the 33 points now because this is the time that WW thinks you should. I know that I would feel deprived if I had to adjust down more than one point if my weigh loss stalled so I would just take the "hit" now and try to see it as a positive that your body doesn't need as much food.

The leader and the receptionist have this mock "challenge" with each other that starts at the beginning of the meeting, where the compare how many activity bars are showing on their Active Link. Then they keep moving to see who can earn the most bars during the meeting. The leader jumps up and down, and then yells at the receptionist who is bouncing around as we'll, stocking shelves and doing jumping jacks behind the partition. The receptionist will dance across the back of the meeting area, and gloat about earning more bars. It was cute the first time, but now it just seems over played, and really annoying. It is so irritating that I am considering going to another meeting, because I no longer feel I am getting out of them what I used to - it is now all their schtick.
In view of what you wrote, I wanted to tell you about our meeting this week.

Yes, Active Link was presented. We also had to go around the room and visit five stations that each promoted a WW product. Videos, mat, punch gloves, hand weights, and strength band. At each station we were to try out the products. Then we sat back down for the meeting. I got the feeling that the leaders are pushed to promote WW products and really can't avoid it. However, since I've been going, this was the first meeting that actually ran over -- because after we did all the stations, the leader then handled the meeting the way she usually does. I did not feel at all like I was sitting through a sales pitch. Our leader maintained the focus on what the meeting was about.

Down another .6 this week. I still need to lose 1.8 to get back to my 46 lb mark. I can't see losing weight at the scales but I'm losing inches because I'm now in a size 10! My third 5K is Saturday!

Weigh in this morning.....down 2.8!!! Nice to see a decent loss after my Disney gain last week!

This makes my total 9.2, so I hope to see the 10 pound mark next week.

I have also been tracking measurements, and have finally seen some movement here as well!

Yep, you'll hit that 10 lb mark next week for sure.

Down 1 pound less than the 3 I bounce between!! Instead of fruit like I was doing for my sweet tooth, I went with the cinnamon sugar pumpkin seeds I made. Maybe my body needed the protein and fiber of the seeds? I thought for sure the sugar would work against me.

Once you do the "earth" thing and hit enter, it puts the url on your page. There is an area highlighted. DO NOT touch anything other than the highlighted area or you'll lose the link. It's the highlighted area where you type what you want it to say. Make sure the and the are not touched in anyway.

I know where my husband works he has to do suggestive sales of certain products to each customer. If they get "shopped" and didn't say it, they can get in trouble.

Thanks for your help with this, everyone! It's not perfect but at least it's there. I was just about to give up.
