BUT take the spaces out from inside the brackets. Then I think you will get what you are looking for.



OK, that's it! I'm just leaving it the way it is. Thanks so much for trying!

It's so hard to show the process, because if you type it out exactly, it creates whatever it is you're trying to do. That's why StayCool had to put the spaces in that you then have to take out, etc. It's a lot easier to have someone show you in person.

If you ever feel like trying again, I believe that if you just went straight to the signature-changing area, erased what you have now, and then just copied and pasted what StayCool wrote, then took out the spaces in between, it would probably do what SC was trying to help you do.


************

My alma mater had Homecoming this weekend, and since we live in the same town I wanted to attend (now that I've lost weight and feel more gregarious and less hermit-like). We spent Friday with my MIL, so the Friday things were out, and the football game and BBQs were out because we needed to spend Saturday afternoon and evening with DH's family to talk about the situation with MIL...so that left their morning activity.

Therefore, 9am saw DH, DS, and I running a 5K around my college campus. BEFORE weigh-in. We just had time to run home, take a minute-long shower, get somewhat dry and changed, and race over to the meeting.

Both DH and I hit new "decades" yesterday, and DH now only has to eat 5 fruits and veggies per day. He'd been at the weight where he was supposed to eat 9, minimum, which was incredibly hard, especially given the Daily points he has! But now it will be easier for him to get those Good Health Guidelines in, and of course he's very excited about it.





Our leader mentioned towards the end of the meeting that she had WW products set out on chairs around the room, and that we should think about exercise we can get in during the day. Thankfully that is all she did with it.

It was almost a standing room only meeting (which is normal for Saturday meetings here especially since they dumped one of the meetings so we only have 3 that morning) so she probably realized that having people moving around the room like was described a few days ago would not work well.

Wow for that 5K! What a great accomplishment.

And new "decades" for each of you too. I'd say Saturday was a very good day for your family. Congrats!

Since we are under a state of emergency here, it looks like I won't have a WW meeting Tuesday. I don't know whether to try to squeeze it in later in the week or just wait until next week.

Congrats on the new decade and the 5K!

They had all the WW fitness products around the room at our meeting this week, too and they had us do a circuit around the room, trying out the products. My leader said that each year they change up the WW plan a little bit, and for 2013 there will be little change to the Points Plus program itself. The focus is going to be making the meeting a better experience for the members, with more interaction. She also mentioned that they are going to be improving the e-tools to make them more user friendly in 2013. Next week there is apparently going to be demonstrations of other products, like the serving spoons.

I was just relieved because this is the first week in a long time that the meeting wasn't a big Active Link commercial.

I am hunkered down waiting for this hurricane to finish, so I am thinking I will try to get in an extra workout today, since I am home bound. Maybe a yoga or Pilates video this morning, and something else late this afternoon or evening. If I'm going to be sitting home, I may as well try to earn some extra activity points. I have some extra energy to burn, since I am getting antsy being homebound, especially because I am supposed to leave for WDW on Friday morning.

Thanks! It was pretty neat. A good moment in all of the MIL health issues and realizing that she has turned into a teenager with rebellion and forgetting things and pushing against what really would be best for her, LOL.

Just checking in to make sure everyone is ok, We missed the direct impact of this one in NC. However, my family in NJ got hit pretty hard. Everyone was ok as of last night but power was out and cell phones were going dead. Be safe everyone! Some of us may be getting a bunch of snow too it looked like.

Need to catch up on thread. The cold that has cycled through my house has finally reached me, ugh. I hate having a persistent cough.

I hope everyone is OK on the east coast! My brother-in-law's family lives in CT and they lost power pretty early on. They have a generator, so I guess they are better off than most.

I have a question for everyone! What is your pre-WI go to dinner? I'm looking for something tasty, but that's not going to lead to water weight/bloat.

So behind on this thread I will need to catch up later! I hope everyone on the east coast is okay!


I was out of town, so weigh-in is a little late. I am down 1.8 pounds, 82.8 overall!

Coming back after being off plan for three weeks. I lost my motivation and I am trying to get it back. I have gained 2 pounds, so I need to nip it in the bud before it gets too bad. We survived Hurricane Sandy, but I did eat a lot of Halloween candy during the storm

The important part is coming back!

I don't eat anything specific, but I try to make sure that is the day that I am as perfectly on plan as possible, and eat my minimum daily. Get all my GHGs!

So I haven't been on in a while, but I think I need to come back more regularly! I had a great loss two weeks ago (3 lbs), but then my brother got married and blah blah blah [insert excuse here], and I kind of just petered out. I really need a motivation boost.

I'm thinking about switching to online. I'm not motivated by the meetings anymore, the monthly pass is really expensive, and I don't really have time. I'm somewhat concerned about the accountability piece.

What do you do to stay accountable? I've kind of been thinking about reaching out somehow to get an "accountability buddy" with whom I would email daily to check in. I don't know how I would go about doing so, though. Has anyone heard of a resource out there for this?

I haven't checked in for a bit, either! Not a whole lot of Dis time lately, sadly. I'll have to go back and catch up on how y'all are doing.
I just finished my first month and I'm down 10 pounds even! (Celebrate!)
I'm going out of town this weekend so I'll have to miss my Saturday meeting. It will be my first time away from home where I have all the control over meals. I'm going to sit down tonight and make a plan so it doesn't turn in to a binge-fest.

I've only ever done online (or at home back in the day!) but have struggled with accountability on several attempts. If find this board and doing a WISH journal are definitely helping this go around! I don't know of a specific resource, but if you need a buddy I'd be willing!

Congrats on the 10 pounds in a month AND creating a plan!
