    Woohoo good for you! I might actually enjoy shopping for my trip this time - never thought of that! Another good reason to stay on track :)

    I'm glad he's getting positive comments from people. I think I'll take my measurements this week for the weeks it feels like the pounds aren't going down. Your dh and I have pretty much the same amount to lose so tell him I'm right there with him :)

    Yes take those measurements! It's the hardest thing to do, but it's so rewarding later on (says a person who couldn't face it early on and now regrets it). with men's sizes he sort of has to know his waist measurement, unlike women, though I guess we have to know bust size as we lose weight. Anyway, you will thank yourself later on.

    Yesterday we took all his old jeans and khakis to goodwill, so that some bigger men can have more selection while shopping there. It made him so happy to see them go.

    I will tell him what you said! He likes support, that's for sure.


    Last night I finally calculated the points for the candy today...6 for a serving of the little Reese's peanut butter eggs and 5 for the crunch "nest eggs". Always good to do before you open the package!

    Neat for your dh!

    Totally agree on the pre-calculating!! Means you enjoy your treat without guilt.

    I had a box of teeny Lindt gold bunnies for dh and I...calculated the points, only 2 per. Was looking forward to it. And I LOST them! :eek: I put them "in a safe place" so the kids wouldn't find them. :headache:

    I just wanted to make sure that everyone knew this was NOT directed at anyone on the thread. I don't think anyone here has an eating disorder :goodvibes.

    I hadn't actually seen that post (I tend to miss chunks of posts), but it's an interesting thought, that it's coming from concern over something like that. Though with me anyone who is close knows that I experimented with bulemia one summer break during college and actually GAINED weight. There went that experiment, thank goodness! It was highly unpleasant.



    Wow! Yay! Have you decided to keep going, or are you now setting yourself into maintenance mode?

    Great Job!!! How exciting!!! :yay:

    I was so happy to get on the WII (and not have it yell at me) I over did it!!! :rotfl: I Hoola-Hooped for way too long, and then tried to do the step aerobics-- was I was not qualified to do. :headache: But I still did it. I couldn't walk at all the next day. But the thrill of being able to actually use the Fitness board was exciting!!!

    I am in maintenance mode. I am going to do that and keep running and strength training to tone up the areas I'm not 100% happy with yet. I don't think I need to lose any more, I just need to tone.

    I am so excited for you! Give yourself a big pat on the back and then do something to celebrate. (Notice I said "do" and not "eat." I'm still wanting to celebrate with food but I'm trying to learn other ways.)

    Cool for you! I have to try again with the wii. I was using it last fall and my weight was all over the place--then I read it isn't accurate on carpet. I was so ticked off I turned it off and haven't turned it on since. (Except to watch netflix!:lmao:)

    That is reeeeeally hard for me, too Debbie, and hard for me not to love my kids with food. Not there yet--let me know any good ideas you have on that!

    So, anyone mess with WI days? Mine is Wednesday but I have a meeting Wed morning so I am considering going early, tomorrow instead. I could go weigh in late Wed but I'd miss "my" meeting, so if I do it tomorrow I can WI and get to a meeting, albeit a different one. A couple of weeks ago I went a day late, because of a storm day (kids home on Wed, and couldn't get out of the driveway). Going early seems like a horse of different colour, though. :scratchin

    I originally had the monthly membership that included meetings and there were two that I could make it to. One on Fridays near my work and one on Tuesdays or Saturdays near my house. It seemed that I could never make it to the same one more than twice in a row and it was messing it all up because half my WI would be at one place on one day and the other half at another place on another day. I finally just bought a good digital scale and changed my membership to online only. I do miss the meetings a bit but I wasn't going enough to justify the extra cost and aggravation.

    Now I weigh in on Friday mornings but I don't record it until Saturdays. I do this because when I joined WW the first time a LONG time ago I used to WI on Fridays at lunch and then I would treat myself to lunch at McDonalds (I just love their fries!) and we'd always either get take out or go for dinner Friday night so I would stop counting points on Friday once I weighed in and then Saturday morning I would get up, go to the pool and start my week. I loved that and had alot of success. It was easier not to cheat during the week when I knew I had Friday to look forward to.

    On the Iphone app if I pick Friday as my WI day then the points reset on Friday and I want them to reset on Saturday but I still wanna have my no counting points Friday afternoon (kinda like my cake and eat it too LOL!) so I WI on Friday and record that weight on Sat and start my new week off on Sat morning. I *know* that it shouldn't really matter when I weigh in but ............I do it that way anyway LOL!

    Thanks dizzyr...that seems to be where I am at right now, stuck between Tues and Wed. I wanted Tues but found the meeting hard to get to. I don't love the leader on Wednesdays but it does feel like my "home". I went this morning, same place different leader. I liked this leader better I think (and her meeting was significantly busier--which tells you something). There's an online membership in Canada now that includes unlimited meetings plus all the online resources, so that's what I do. I need someone else to weigh me!
