If you have e Tools, there is recipe builder. You put in your ingredients and how many it serves and it will come up with a point value. I think everyone is different on nocticing when clothes are too big. I really don't notice until I lose a good 15-20 pounds.

That is frustrating. Something similar happened to me several years ago. I could barely function at work, and was in a lot of pain. Everyone told me it was either stress or IBS. I finally went to a nurse practitioner who figured it out and sent me for an ultrasound to confirm the diagnosis. I will be praying she is able to get someone to help her!

I absolutely am! I tried on some more today. I fit into my old high school PE shorts and they were LOOSE!

I agree with Aburns8. My pants were probably comfortable at 10, and getting looser around 20. Everyone is different though. It depends on how your weight is distributed and where you are losing first. Just keep at it! Those pants will be too big pretty soon!

ARRRGGHHH!!!! I feel your pain!! I'm a "newbie" to weight watchers--just started Monday and find it a little more difficult to tally points than I thought it would be. I know I'll get more comfortable with it as times goes on. I can't wait until my weigh-in and meeting next week but had the same positive thought that you had--if I don't lose any weight, I probably didn't gain either

Good luck!

I did a lot of grumbling until then because I was expecting change sooner.

I used to have a leader who would say that after the first 10 pounds, the clothes you were wearing would start to fit. I lost over 20 pounds before I started wearing the next smaller size.

If you dont use the recipe builder in e-tools, figure the points value of all the ingredients individually, add them up for a recipe total and then divide by the number of servings. Sounds like a lot of work but you'll get used to it!

Not sure why you didn't lose on your first week, Zachsmom. You dont actuallly have to eat all your Weekly Points -- they are there for you if you need them but eating them is not an obligation. I actually do eat every one of mine. Make sure this week that you track, absolutely eat all of your Daily Points and try to get in all of your Good Health guidelines which are mention on the bottom of the paper tracker or in the right side of your 3-month journal. Eat all you Weekly's, some of them or none -- that's up to you. I wouldn't worry about eating the activity points for a couple of weeks until you're comfortable and familiar with eating your daily's and getting in the GH guidelines foods.

I hope you're successful with your next weigh-in.

You could make muffins and keep them in the freezer. WW has the oatmeal (I dont like it but you might) -- it's fast but you couldn't eat that and drive to work. You could make yourself a quick egg mcmuffin with an english muffin, an egg and some turkey bacon or a slice of ham. You could certainly eat a sandwich in the car or on transit. How about the WW smoothies. They're a dairy serving and easy to drink. Add some fruit and protein powder and that could be an acceptable breakfast of about 4pts when made with water. Cereal bars are convenient as well but usually more points than I would want to spend. Grab some fruit at least if you have nothing else. I know fruit is zero points but at least you're having food and not just coffee. Even dry cereal could be eaten on the run.

It's really not good to have used only about 3 points by evening. I would be afraid of being so hungry that I would eat just about everything I could find. What are you having for lunch??

Thanks for the suggestions. I am usually just not hungry until around 2 in the afternoon. Then I will grab a sandwich or bowl of cereal (before WW). Now I don't know. One of my problems is that I work at night part-time. It is only 2 days a week, but plays heck with my schedule. So my body doesn't have a set schedule for meals because it changes frequently.

Today I had my coffee and then a bowl of cereal. Lunch will be fresh sushi that I picked up yesterday. Dinner tonight will be stuffed peppers. But then I go to work tonight and I'm still trying to figure that out. This is only my first full week tracking so I guess these are going to be my short-term obstacles.

 07-15-2012, 04:10 AM #134 bumbershoot DIS Veteran     Join Date: Mar 2007 Location: Tacoma WA Posts: 47,224 Lost .4! And finished Week 4 of my C25K program (I'd repeated Week 3). It feels so good AND so bad! My muscles are so happy to be running again (I am not built for walking, never have been), but they are so sore at the same time. Looks like I went down a size at around 17 pounds. Or is it 1.5 sizes, if you started with a W at the end of the size, and moved to something without that W? I'm not sure. Now I'm 34 down and seem to be ready to move down another notch. The new-size pants I bought at Old Navy are getting as silly looking as the original size was. Especially since I bought them in the store, and therefore couldn't get short or petite. I was rolling them up twice, now it's three times. since they are the "perfect khaki" in the Diva cut, which is a serious boot cut, rolling them just looks silly on me IMO. I did buy one size down in shorts, and tried on a bunch of other shorts and even some denim capris, and they all went on my body. Is that experience surreal for anyone else? YOu get so used to your clothes being a certain size. A certain width, you know what I mean? And then you're picking up clothing that's less wide, and you just cannot believe that you're fitting into it, even as you're fitting into it? I'm having that "problem", big time. And I wonder why I didn't have this much self-awareness on my way UP! __________________ -molly + robert + eamon (10!!)

Congratulations on the loss and finishing another week.

I lost 2.8 this week. I was up .6 last week, so I relost that and then some! I had to put my C25K on hold for a couple of weeks. With DH's job I have no one to watch the baby when I go to the gym. But I have been mall walking at lunch. i think I have been getting two miles in each day.
