    You all are truly inspiring! Thank you SO much for sharing your photos :)

    I joined WW July 28th and my first weekly meeting was July 29th (Sundays). This past weekend we were out of town for a wedding and missed our meeting, for the first time since we started a month and a half ago. I couldn't really believe it, but I actually MISSED being there. My work schedule hasn't been conducive to getting to another meeting in it's place yet this week - maybe tomorrow if I can sneak out of work early enough.

    But, I'm not giving up! I'm down a total of 15 pounds and I hope for that number to keep growing while I keep shrinking! I still have a long road to go, but you guys are inspiring me!:cheer2:

    Thanks so much everyone for your positive responses! I used to hate taking pictures. That's why I have none from February. I only have pictures from occasions, like vacations and Christmas.


    Thanks Debbie! I saw your pictures as well! You look great! I should take a picture in my before outfit too. I actually just gave the shirt to my dad, because it is almost too big to even sleep in!

    I also saw your post about praying in gratitude where God has brought you. I feel the same way. I know I couldn't have done this on my own! I have tried and failed so many times, and this is the first time I believe it will stick. It is only by the grace of God that I can do this, and be an example to others.

    Thanks for the help with the food tracker. I have been using the moble tracker, so that must be my problem. I find it very frustrating that the mobile side is so incomplete. I was thinking about getting the fitness tracker, but I wonder if it has the same holes as the app.

    Tomorrow is my weigh in day. I am excited to see the progress I have made. I think i have done pretty well. Today was difficult, i made all sorts of baked goods to take to the local firehouses. I managed to resist sampling them, oh it was hard though! I will check in tomorrow with my totals. :goodvibes

    Definitely inspiring to see the pictures! Wow!

    Dh and ds went out tonight for dinner and dd was with her boyfriend (he leaves for college tomorrow). So I splurged on a Trader Joes frozen meal for dinner-butter chicken. 11 points. But I had 20 left, so no biggie.

    I'm not trying to sound whiny about my weight loss....8 pounds isn't bad, but I have my weight loss books from the other two times I had a big weight loss and this rate isn't even close. So it's hard not to compare.

    But I will keep plugging away!

    Down 1.6 at last night's WI for a total now of 52 lbs. I am happy!

    Today I go back to the doctor for the first full exam since she told me six months ago that if I didn't do something, she was going to increase my bp meds. That was what motivated me to join WW, kicking and screaming and saying "I don't want to do this," but I did it. I think she'll be pleased today! :)

    Great job!!! Have an awesome trip to the doctor -- It's actually fun to go when you know they won't yell at you!

    We all understand Julia. For many of us this isn't our first time around! However, those bigger losses from an earlier foray didn't stay off, while you sound really committed this time. Better to lose at a slower pace and keep the weight off than to lose fast only to gain it back (plus more) later. The WW studies show that a slower, steady weight loss is more likely to be kept off.

    Keep plugging away, like you said, and then do a comparison when you get to a milestone.

    That's awesome. I, too, joined WW because of my doctor "suggesting" I try to lose weight. I was 2 months from my appointment when I joined and she was happy. I keep thinking about my next one in January and how well that one is going to go :) Keep up the good work! :banana:

    That's great! My mom is on WW too, and she recently had a doctor visit. He was very happy! It feels so good to actually get positive feedback from the doctor!

    I usually work out on my elliptical however, the weather has been beautiful here. Everyone is talking about HR monitors so, that inspired me to dust mine off and go for a 3 mile run today. Thanks everyone :thumbsup2.

    Good for you!! I usually use my tredmill and have been wanting to go outside but 2 things keep me in.

    1. I know running off the tredmill is WAY harder and I suck at it.
    2. I have an almost 5 year old at home with me and I'm unable to ditch her, haha.

    Oh well, I am glad some of us get to enjoy the weather. We get a taste of it when we walk to go pick my son up from school. :)

    The inspirational photos were great....I looked at them all!

    Happy this morning......I am wearing a pair of size 20 pants (Talbots brand). When I started in early August I was wearing some loose 24's and 22's. Maybe not a huge difference, but I'm happy today. They were a bit tight going on, but I wore them today for the boost to my ego and motivation.

    Wow, the pictures are great!!!

    I had my first weigh in today, I am down 5.6 pounds! Yay! I went for a 2 mile walk today. I hope to work up to running. I always used to say that the only reason for running is something chasing you....but I might have to revise that statement. It is to fit into your favorite jeans! :rotfl:

    Today I wore a pair of pants that had been sitting on my shelf for at least a year. They were those pants that I *could* fit into but I really shouldn't. :rotfl: They fit fine today. :cool1: The pants I had in regular rotation are getting a bit loose. I can't wait until I can start to get rid of some of them!

    I'm having a hard time getting moving because I have so much school work to do. I have class for 7 hours on Wednesdays where I literally sit all day. Plus I have work and clinicals to do which makes it really hard to anything besides school and work. :crazy2: I might have to take it easy until classes are over and squeeze things in as I can. I am only averaging about 3 workouts a week.
