Well I am an low carber so for me it's all about the carb count.. I was shocked to find out the little individual flavored creamers by international delight (found at convience stores) have 4 carbs per teeny tiny tub! put 3 in my coffee the other day - drank it all - then looked it up ! well that was a waste of 12 carbs out of my 20-22 for the day!!!

Thanks for coaching this week Lisa

So relieved to have gotten this far this week and feeling hopeful for tomorrows weigh-in

QOTD HAVE TO SAY VISUALLY THE HOME-COOKED MEALS ARE SO MUCH MORE APPEALING!!

The waffles and berries one surprised me the most-I had no idea that the restaurant version was so calorific
You are so right about the home cooked meals looking so much more appealing!

I have faith there is a in your future soon!

QOTD:
When I got into tracking calories, the thing that surprised me the most was how lean meat gives you a lot of food for relatively few calories. I guess this is why low carb diets work so well.
Good point! And protein helps you to feel full longer, too.

I'm sure Eliza32 will let you know about coaching. I'm going to be looking for coaching volunteers for October soon so please keep that in mind, too.

Wowza! Good thing you figured that out!

Thanks! I always have a lot of fun the weeks that I coach.

I am getting so much better at getting more bang for my calorie (or WW point) buck. I think the pizza one is most surprising to me this time around.

I have another for this week -- I lost 6 pounds this week and earned my 20 pound star at WW finally so I thank you all for inspiring me this week and helping me to get my WISH lime green ten days early!

300 calories look drastically different when you're eating in instead of dining out. Choosing healthier, more nutritious foods--at home and away--means you can eat much more food and still lose weight.
Thank you so much for sharing this! I did "know" this kind of information but to actually "see" the difference in making smart choices at home versus eating out really was surprising. Great visuals! I also shared with DH, who was similarly shocked. Great post! \

Also, congrats on turning lime green and an incredible weight loss of 6 pounds this week! That is awesome!!!

Hi Everyone

I am back!

I've updated the colours in post #3 with all weights received up to and including 19th September. We welcome a couple of new WISHers to our challenge this week tmarshall14 and LJRJR. OhMum, I would be very grateful if you would take on coaching for the coming week.

Remember today is weigh-day. Finally I have seen some movement in the right direction, 2 off for me this week.......quite pleased with that after my junk eating holiday 2 weeks ago!!

Well it's day off for me today, so 1st load of washing is nearly done in the machine (gym gear that I need for my 5K tomorrow!), the hoover is ready to be thrown around the carpet (daren't do it too early in case I wake up the neighbours) and then I have shopping to do. It's FILs 80th Birthday tomorrow and we're throwing an 'english tea party' for him. Eldest son is coming over from Belgium and bringing drink, middle son is responsible for the savouries, and my OH, the youngest (which means me!) is responsible for dessert. We're having french fancies, bakewell tart, jam tarts, lemon curds, swiss roll, treacle tart, battenberg and scones with cream and jam. I guess you guys will need to google most of that!! It's all very traditional stuff over here.

Hope many of you have had a successful week on your weight-loss journey. Look forward to hearing from you all over the next couple of days.

Re. Lisa's QOTD........I'm lucky, my diet plan totally disregards calories!!!! We have certain foods which are 'free'. This means we can literally eat them in unlimited amounts!!! Pasta, rice and potatoes are included in this!!! I know it amazes you all, but at 66lbs gone, I guess I am some kind of proof that it works!!! It's some kind of food combining science, but I've no idea how it actually works!!!!

Lisah welldone on reaching Lime green and thanks for coaching this week

Eliza-love the sound of your FIL birthday party (I am all too familiar with all those treats). Sounds delicious!

I'm delighted to say that I'm a loser this week
3lbs off which means I'm 2 lbs down since I started! . So pleased with myself (just goes to show what I can do when I stick with it)!!

Good luck at the scales everyone

Smile ** A KIND "HOWDY!" FrOM TEXAS **

ok.....I'm in!


Glad I found your thread. Been losing weight since late July as my weight loss journey starts a little over 1/2 way down on page 5 of my upcoming San Fran, Rose Bowl adventure that u will find in my below listed signature.



Glad to find my support group.
(overall, as of 09-19-13, I am at a 51 pound weight loss)


Some lifestyle change (I don't like saying the word "dieting"), humor -
When I first got started, I would weigh myself with the scale close to a wall. Well, the numbers kept on "going all over the place" so I had to use my hand to lean against the wall......IN ORDER TO SEE THE NUMBERS CLEARLY.
(I had to look at the scale sideways cuz my stomach 'got in the way')

OUCH!!!

Once I got to the point that I didn't have to do that anymore, I first saw that I was about 3 pounds heavier!! (the wall 'helped" me cheat & I didnt even know it) -

NOW, it is such a pleasure to step on that scale.



P.S.
Hey Eilza32, thanks for the heads up on British foods as I just learned a few days ago, the CORRECT way to have coffee w/cream (I am a foodie and am looking forward to seeing London for the very first time in August).



Getting caught up on this thread - I am reading now from page 1 -

knewton64 you are in for such a treat....I can tell you all manner of places to go...Borough Market (you may have seen na Garten do a programme there???). Neals Yard Dairy for some real English cheese, Camden Lock Market for all sorts of ethnic foods, including some real good indian. Got to confess I've never had a decent indian in the US!!

As you are in TX, are you familiar with the eating plan that I follow...Slimming World...only place in the US that it's available is TX apparently!

Please PM me your starting weight (as of today) and how much you would like to lose by 30th September, then I'll add you to the list in post #3. Well done for coming so far on your journey already.

A big to knewton!!

Lisa, 6 pounds is fantastic!! I know you are usually a slow loser like me, so that is just wonderful!

I know all of your treats, Helen, we have had many family vacations in the UK in self-catering places and one of our biggest joys was trying our way through all the different food offerings. My sister is very partial to Battenbergs, I would prefer the scones.

---

Very happy with my weigh in today, I lost over a pound last week, which is good for me. Now my first interim goal is less than two pounds away. Maybe I can even manage to get there until the end of the month. That would be fabulous!

Eliza just wondering have you found slimming world difficult to follow? I've heard great success stories about it but wondered how it would be in reality?

I find it easy peasy honestly. Once you get your head around it and accept it does work, it's great. It is hard to accept that you can lose weight and eat all of the things you can, but like I said, it works!!!

So DOUBLE welcome to a family member!!
and a hearty to the rest of our newcomers too!

I have been very absent this month.... my apologies but most of all i'm disappointed to myself!! we started this month with two very busy weekends, then I spent 10 days recovering from overdoing it! I finally caved in and increased my meds and now I fear a weight gain from it. I need to give myself a week on the higher dose before I decide not too stay on it. the downside was I so exhausted and I can't tell you the last time I exercised but I am determined to get my walking shoes on tomorrow morning!

and..though my losses have been very small...i'm please to say I've gone down one size in my jeans. it's a small step but i'll take it!
Major woohoo on the new jeans size!! I'm also lacking significantly in the "real exercise" department. No excuses this weekend though!

That reminds me of my goal to be at my goal weight before our first trip to Disney next year. Do I really not want to be in any pictures because of my weight? Am I willing to do that to myself, my DH, and my DD? Helps keep me on track, at least for now!

Also found all of the motivational quotes posts by others really inspiring! Thanks for sharing all the quotes, pics, etc.!

Hope everyone is having a great week so far and doing the best they can in staying on track/program.
Disney (or any real trip) is always a HUGE motivator for me! I love to travel and I love to have photos during the trip.... so I want to be able to look at the photos and LOVE them and not feel embarrassed to share them! You can do this!!

Third, last week at open house for school, lots of people noticed my weight loss. YAY!

Fourth, I am 1.6 pounds away from the 160's!!!
Hey stranger!! Hope all is well at your house(s) this fall! So happy to hear that the weight loss journey is going well for you!! How is DS enjoying Senior year?? Presume he is running this fall?? Leg is all better? Don't be a stranger here!!

Still a bit frustrated as not seeing and mvmt on the scale. I'm still so darn bad about snacks. A pinch of this a handful of that. E specially late afternoon.

Got my food journal sitting out on the countertop prepared to jot down every bite today.
That is a MAJOR woohoo moment! I can remember the first time I took my kiddos out for a "treat" meal (can't remember exactly where though) and just decided that I would wait and eat at home. It was definitely a breakthrough to realize that I did NOT need to eat the high calorie foods (of course, it took a while longer to figure out that my KIDS did not need to eat that stuff either ).

Good for you with the food journal. Mine has a place of honor on the kitchen counter and has for almost 6 years now! It serves as a daily reminder to stay on track.

Been crazy busy this week, hence no colour update yet, but thanks to all of you that have sent in your weights, they are on the spreadsheet, just need to change the colours on here. Didn't get home last night until 9:45, although did manage to fit in 5.5K on the treadmill and 3K on the bike at the gym between leaving work and chairing my union meeting!!

PlutoBaby, which hotel did you stay in in Sorrento??? We stayed at the Carlton International near Tasso Square, it was lovely. My mum has splashed out a couple of times and stayed at the Capo di Monte, but it's out of my league!!
Great woohoo!! Nice job fitting in gym time with a busy day!

My woohoo moment was my walk / run. I do a 4 mile loop in an hour with a combo of walking fast and running. I've slowly added more run songs and removed slower songs. Today I removed the slowest song I was using to climb up the steep hill by the lake runoff because I.can jog it to a faster song now. And the next slowest really tripped me up today and now that's off too and I've added another running song. Really feeling some strength on my legs now and almost feel capable of running the whole thing, even the hills - really great feeling!

That's terrific. When I was running more I really had trouble with hills (and I live on top of a mountain!). Good for you for tackling them!

Also, my weight this week kept creeping down 100g a day, so today I arrived at 71kg. Which is the lowest weight I ever tracked in my WW history (when I signed up again earlier this year it still had all my old data). I hope that tomorrow's weigh in will be good! And for me a one pound loss is already spectacular!


I am starting to wonder whether the body goes through seasons with regard to weight loss. I noticed that in the past I was always good at losing weight through the fall, mid winter and late spring. September and October have in the past often been the months where I lost a lot of weight fairly quickly. Interesting thought. Maybe there is something about how the different seasons change my metabolism?

MAJOR woohoo for you this week!! So excited for you!! Can't really comment on the seasonal thing.... but maybe if I made a spread sheet of my weight over the past 5+ years I would see a trend??

[QUOTE=lisah0711;49605879]
for more work and hopefully funds for Disney travel.

I wish. Right now it is going toward the college funds and the Costa Rica fund. DS is going in February and it was a year earlier than we had planned for, so there wasn't anything left in that particular "envelope". That being said, DD has decided to NOT attend the swim travel training trip in January, so I should be getting back $400 of the $500 I put towards it.

Do you know what 300 calories looks like?

300 calories look drastically different when you're eating in instead of dining out. Choosing healthier, more nutritious foods--at home and away--means you can eat much more food and still lose weight.

Which leads me to the QOTD for Thursday, September 19, 2013: Are you surprised by how much (or little) you can eat for the calories, depending on which foods you choose? Which meal was most shocking to you?
I know I've answered this before. Sometimes I feel like NOTHING surprises me any more.... but then I pick up a package of something at the store and SURPRISE! I take care of avoiding future surprises by ALWAYS tracking the PointPlus BEFORE I eat something!!

Great visual Lisa....thanks for sharing it!

So relieved to have gotten this far this week and feeling hopeful for tomorrows weigh-in

QOTD HAVE TO SAY VISUALLY THE HOME-COOKED MEALS ARE SO MUCH MORE APPEALING!!

The waffles and berries one surprised me the most-I had no idea that the restaurant version was so calorific
Restaurant foods are calorie BOMBS most of the time!

QOTD:
When I got into tracking calories, the thing that surprised me the most was how lean meat gives you a lot of food for relatively few calories. I guess this is why low carb diets work so well.
Yup!
