Today's NSV: Avoiding all the sugary treats people have been bringing in!

In our office today someone brought in Belgian chocolates, another person brought in Dunkin Donuts Munchkins, and another person brought in a butter coffee cake. (OH, and another person offered me mint oreos!)

My office is across the hall from the kitchen. I am beginning to think its sabotage!

Not really...everyone does it to be friendly to each other...but they sure are testing my will power!

I lost 5 lbs this week! My leader suggested adding veggies to every meal after a long plateau, and it worked! 42.4 lbs total! Shooting for 5 more by Disney (dec 6)

Hello all, Hoping to start posting to this thread for accountability ) I am a LT WW member and am currently 3.8 lbs over my high range and 12-13 pounds from my personal goal.

It's been a tough year (lost my mom in 10/2011) and started back at meetings Sunday... of course we got hit with Sandy yesterday and eating has gone out the window the last couple of days.

Huge Disney fan (married at the Poly), love running though I've been slacking lately (my gain I'm sure hasn't helped) and have done the Princess half and CC5k. We have three trips planned from November '12-November '13, along with a cruise, and I'd REALLY like to be at goal for them. Looking at the dates, I *think* the Food and Wine half 2013 will be going on during a planned trip, so I'm hoping to sign up (and another CC5k same trip).

For now, just want to get these last few pounds off. My plan is to be hardcore between now and 11/30, which is when we leave for trip #1.

Goal for tomorrow, make it through Halloween. I permit 1-2 pieces of candy after the kids go to bed and THAT'S IT. No school tomorrow though DH and I will both be back to work after 2 days off.

Looking forward to getting to know this group!

-Leslie

That would be great! Can you tell me more about WISH journals? I took a quick peek, but it'd be nice to hear more from someone experienced.

I was just talking to my mom about how we will miss the encouragement when we lose weight, but we can just come here and get the same support!

Okay, I just started a wish journal. Thanks for the idea! I'm excited to have something new to motivate me! How is everyone on the east coast faring from Sandy? We were lucky - no power loss or damage.

5, wow! Congrats! Sounds like the veggies are doing something good for your system!




Halloween candy...I've been dealing with this since we went to the Disneyland Halloween Party. And I took all the candy DH and DS can't have. Naughty naughty me.

I have found it very helpful to find out the points values of the little "fun" sized bags/bars BEFORE opening them. Hint: for the Milky Way Fun Size, they give the NI info for TWO bars on the milkyway website.

With the knowledge of the points for these candies ahead of time, I find it much easier to control myself.

But my caveat is...since around the second month back on WW I've been including small, portion-controlled, desserts, so I have practice at this. If you don't yet have that control, or haven't worked at it quite yet, that might not work for you at all. This doesn't *really* work for DH, and he just tends to avoid the candy, since it's such a huge trigger for him. Plus, he's surrounded by it when he's at his office, which makes it even harder for him.

An idea could be to get the NI for the candies you are tempted by now, work out the points, and that way you have the info before you have the candies in front of you.

Congrats to all the losers!

I went to my meeting tonight and the doors were locked. Nobody home. But a nice size group standing outside the doors waiting. Three hours after I got home I had an email -- "We're Open today." (but call this number to be sure). It was time stamped 8:54. Just a wee bit late.

Dd and I are going to go back up tomorrow morning for a meeting but we'll have her 4yo twins with us. Could be interesting.

We made out fine with the storm in spite of living in the middle of a state forest. No trees down and no power loss. Thanking the Lord for that blessing!

3. Get back on track the minute you get back, and keep your points at your daily minimum those first few days. (I was up three pounds my first day back, and it disappeared for good within a week.)
4. I avoided carbs like the plague. No bread at yachtsman, ate a turkey sandwich on the Boardwalk...hold the bread, no fries.
5. Track every bite, even if it means you ate 60, 70, 80 points. It will help you for next time.


50s Primetime looks tough! If I had done well at all my meals, I probably splurge here, if not I would probably order the pork loin, and see if I could sub veggies for the mashed potatoes. Or even see if I could do the chicken noodle soup instead of the potatoes and veggies.

For Counter service, you can order a kids meal for yourself and get apples and/or veggies for sides.

Hope some of that helps!

Also, at WDW, you walk a lot so it helps.

You would have to count everything that does not usually have a green triangle next to it on the food list, or I think you can print off a list from the WW website.

Make sure you get tons of fruits and veggies for the villa, so that you don't have to rely on evil treats for your snacks. Publix has a good produce department as far as I recall, or you can even just get Disney fruits. They are expensive, but tend to be really tasty.

Just do the best you can *around* the naughtier foods, and try to be OK with the possibility of a *temporary* gain when you get back. (Disneyland caused a 4.2 gain for me inside of a week, LOL)
Thanks for the tips everyone. Hasn't been a good week for me, up 2 but I have nuts, dried fruit and cliff bars packed for the drive down tomorrow and will definitely add some stuff to that when we get to the store after we arrive.

I'll provide an update when I get back!

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'll be your CT buddy ) We are in the same boat, no power loss or damage thank goodness (especially after last year). I feel for those in the mid-Atlantic

Plan for Halloween is NO candy. I usually have 1-2 pieces Halloween night but, you know what, I've decided it's not worth the 3 P+ for a peanut butter cup. I want that two piece! We'll see how strong I feel by 8pm lol.

WI day! After 2 big losses in the past 2 weeks, I am up this morning. 0.2 pounds. I was a little desapointed, but I know all those halloween treats aren't helping!!!

Congrats everyone on their losses. Let's have a great week!

Down 0.4 today!

For me, I have to say NO to all the halloween candy because once I start, I have trouble stopping. I can say NO to all of it much easier than I can say NO to the rest of it!

Wow! I think I'll try that next week. I eat a lot of veggies already, but extra ones can't hurt and will make me feel full faster.

Welcome to the thread! I put off buying candy until last night and I managed to keep myself to only 2 pieces. I think I will allow myself some more tonight after my DD brings her candy home. I think this may be her last year trick or treating which is kinda sad that she's getting too old. A bigger problem for me is the pumpkin seeds I toasted this morning. I put them in a sealed container so I don't just grab a handful of crunchy, salty goodness everytime I go into the kitchen. I'll have to weigh out an ounce so I will have an idea how much I am eating.

I think that 12 pounds in 12-16 weeks is doable for most people . It'll be challenging between Thanksgiving and New Years, but you can do it!

You are stronger than I am. Congratulations on your loss .

Another good WI. When I have a good WI one week, I really don't expect another one for a few weeks, so this was quite the surprise. Down 2.6, for a total now of 63.4. (I did not like this meeting leader, I'm glad for the lady we have on Tuesday nights.)
