    Perhaps ordering Chinese food for dinner last night and then having leftovers for lunch this morning wasn't the best idea! I only have something like 16 weeklies left and I usually don't use more than 10 in the whole week!

    Welcome! I've been on ww a few times too and got to almost my goal weight- stayed there for a bit- and now have it all to lose again. We can do it!

    Have a great time!

    Sometimes I wonder if its better to use them all at once- or close to that- and then stay with dailies the rest of the week. My super skinny sil once said to me that if she's going to have a treat (we were talking about frozen cookie dough my grandmother used to drop off when she didn't have time to bake it for us) she would have it all at once so she metabolized it all at once. She thought it was better than eating a little extra every day. Don't know if that works for everyone but it works for her!

    I'm into week 2 back and so far so good! I'm one of those people who weigh-in every day and I love seeing the number slowly go down!

    Hope everyone has a great day.

    I had to quit Weight Watchers! :furious: Why is it every time I lose a little bit of weight my body decides it is time for another baby????!!!!!! :eek: So I am trying to just have the healthiest pregnancy possible and restart after this one makes an appearance. Will still be checking in. I am 3 1/2 months along and so far no weight gain! I can do this! :cool1:

    With pleasure. My best friend struggles with infertility, so I can understand to an extent how difficult it is. :hug:

    Week 2 weigh in today was unchanged from week 1. Which is actually a success since this second week couldn't have been any more different than week 1.

    Week 1, I didn't touch my weekly points at all and got in at least 4 days of walking. Week 2, I ate just about all my weekly points (via very poor food choices) and only walked 2 days. Plus I never lose weight at a certain time of the month.

    So not gaining anything was a huge relief this morning. I had feared the scales since last Thursday. Hoping week 3 shows better progress!

    Week 2 Day 5 sticking to it! I'm on vacation this week, at home, so it's been a little harder than when I'm busy at work but I'm planning my meals and logging all my points.

    Hope everyone is having a good week!

    I'm back. I've been gone for about a year. I took me 2 years to lose 75 lbs, and 1 year to gain it back.:headache:

    So now I'm back in the saddle. Week 1 I lost 7 lbs, and week 2 was 2.2 lbs for a total of 9.2 in 2 weeks!:banana:


    My old meeting disbanded, so I had to join a new meeting, with a new leader. I have to ask, have all WW meetings become a "hard sell" of the WW products? At least 10 minutes of the 30 minute meeting is selling kits, bars, pop chips and active link. My old meeting wasn't so focused on selling.

    Not *all* of them are like that, but some are. My leader mentions things that she truly likes or uses routinely. She does it briefly and moves on. Other leaders are different.

    This week started off rough but ended on a good note. I'm down 4.6 which makes up for the 1 I was up last week. The interesting thing is I used all my weeklies except 1 and most weeks I don't use more than 10-15. Every week I have about 32 activity points that I don't use.

    I'm going to try and increase the activity points this week and worry less about the weeklies.

    Coastgirl where are you these days??

    I am almost finished with week 2 of maintaining! It is a tricky business for sure! I am still trying to figure out a happy medium to make sure I don't lose or gain too much.

    Welcome back! That's a great start. I have to say I find there is too much promotion in my meeting too, though I like my leader.

    That's great, congrats!

    That's really interesting, Dizzyr, and of course a great result for you! Congrats, it's really great that you "caught up". I had a couple of weeks like that too, though not quite such a good net loss...but a week of "flat" and then a week of 2.2 down. It's actually not such a bad thing, it reminds me not to be so hard on myself when the results aren't what I want in a given week.

    Interesting too about using your weeklies in a week with better results. I am always trying to figure out what's best. I can't starve myself, just can't, so I like hearing reinforcement that using the weeklies can be good!!

    Good luck Keah! I think it's a tricky phase, as evidenced by those of us who come around for a second go... :blush: Good for you for keeping your head and working on it. (Me, not so much. :blush: :blush: But I'll do better this time!!)

    It's been a really busy week here...have been reading but not posting. Had a good WI, down 2.2 and finding my clothes fitting better. I am regularly doing some activity--taking the dog for a walk, usually 40 mins +, which is 40 mins more movement than I was doing. I have an interview this week, for a job I'd love, and I have no idea what I can wear--have to dive into my closet and check it out.

    I'm down 15 now, about 5 lbs a month, which I know is good, but I still want to speed things up. Trying to increase my activity without killing myself. We'll see. 3.5 months or so til our trip, and I really want to NOT be embarrassed by the vacation pics this time.

    DH finally hit over 40 lost! What a long, hard slog it's been for him, especially with me being the annoyingly speedy loser in the household.

    He hit 30 in August and so it has been a LONG time for him. But he did it, got a hug and tears from our leader, and lots of kudos at the meeting. Better yet he feels energized and psyched for the rest of it, which will be a total of 200 if he can reach the WW max for his height etc. He thinks he'll have to do the doctors note for goal though, rather than the WW goal.
