I usually lose pretty slowly, but I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will be able to lose nearly a pound per week. I looked back at my weight loss average since I re-booted myself and it's .8 per week which puts me right on target! Good news is that the (Stinkin') Badgers have a bye week so no tailgating tomorrow .
Congratulations on that loss. That's impressive!

I couldn't believe the Spartans pulled it out last week against your Badgers. It is not a good year to bleed green.

I know! I was there! What an ugly game. I did think of you . Our quarterback Joel Stave broke his collarbone in that game and he'll be out for the rest of the season. Our back-up QB, Danny O'Brien, had to jump in a try to play. He wasn't very good at the start of the year and he wasn't very good on Saturday. THANK GOODNESS we have a bye week so O'Brien can work with the offensive line. The are all pretty young and finally came around for Stave and I think they will come around for O'Brien. I hope. We have Indana, OSU and Penn State left on the schedule and Montee Ball needs 5 more TDs to break the NCAA career record for TDs. He didn't get any against Sparty.

ETA: We'll be in Tampa for New Year's Eve and I was kinda hoping that Bucky would go to the Outback Bowl. I think they can still do it especially since PSU is out of the Bowl picture.

Hi ,

I'm Susie, this is my first ever post on DIS, I'm 25 and I live in Scotland. I'm starting ww on Monday and this seemed like such a friendly board so I just had to join in . I have 64lbs to lose and at the moment it feels like a massive challenge. I've tried to start ww a few time but its always fallen flat, so I'm going to try really hard to stay motivated this time.

My fiance and I are going to WDW on the 1st of February. It's our first holiday together and its also the first time either of us has been to WDW, I've been to Disneyland Paris by myself but it'll be his first time at any Disney park , so I'd like to get my weight down a bit by then

On top of ww I'm going to do some zumba on the wii. I've been wanting to try running for a while but I'm not real confident about it, I'm going to give it a try anyway. I'm thinking about following a running plan for beginners that's outlined in zest running guide for women.

Welcome Susie! Like Debbie said, we're happy to help with WW ideas and WDW planning. This is a great thread full of really helpful people (who just keep getting smaller and smaller!).

I just did something unprecedented. I just spent an hour at the gym at Old Key West! My first time working out at WDW, other than the casual exercise I get from all the walking. I'm not tracking while I am on vacation, so I figured I out to work off some of the Food & Wine! Hopefully any gain I have will be minimal, since I am being somewhat sensible and staying very active.

That is awesome! I have aspirations of using the jogging routes but never do.

On a positive note, down .4 as I wait for my WW meeting to start!

I am down 2 for the week. So I lost what I gained. But I think having a stomach bug had something to do with it. I still need to get tracking again!

That's good information to have! Now you know what to do. Did you track today?



Gained .2. I've been sick and I got this lovely garlicky veggie wonton soup from a local Asian fusion place in town as a form of medicine. I ate the entire container (for health purposes of course) the night before WI. While the restaurant doesn't use MSG, they do use salt! whoopsie! I'm not worried about it...when I put my pants on WI morning they felt looser than they ever had, so I'm feeling good about that. Can't wait for this stupid cold to go away so I can get back to working out! (some people can workout while sick, but since illnesses hit me in the lungs and I'm prone to asthma anyway, so I don't)

Dh thought he'd gained 5. So finding out it was only 1 made him happy. He took this week off to help out with his mom, so he hasn't had his baseline activity which involves walking to and from public transit or even walking around his office. He goes back to work tomorrow so that will change.

I bit the bullet and dropped by my WW Center for a weigh-in. I've missed the past 4 weeks due to a 2 week vacation and illness. I knew it would be ugly--I'm up 6 lbs So today I have committed to tracking everything and getting back on the program. On the plus side, I am still lighter than I was when I started WW a few months ago.

I ran by the grocery afterwards and stocked up on fresh fruits and veggies and my favorite WW treat (the dark chocolate raspberry bars---only 2 pts). So now I'm prepared to move forward. I'd thought I'd be a little more bummed than I am--I knew I gained (my jeans told me!) but somehow I feel relieved knowing that I can "fix" it.

I tried that too and it didn't work. I really need to track to keep me accountable! Did you start tracking again?

Oh awesome! Was just looking at an article on the great gyms at deluxe resorts. They looked fantastic! Kudos to you for going!

I'm down 3.4 pounds, 86.2 overall! Only 30 pounds to go! I am trying to lose 10 more by the end of the year. Here's hoping!

Hi everyone! It's been awhile since I've been here because of Sandy. I have no power at my house but am GLAD to be back at work. I hope everyone here fared well and is safe and sound!!!
All that shivering must have done me well last week. I lost 2.6 and I'm down a total of 38.6 since May 1.

It's going to take me awhile to catch up reading everything here but congrats to all who are sticking with it. No matter what- just keep going. We're all going to be hot tamales (I'm a cold tamale til that heat kicks in at home ) !!
Have a great week everyone!!
