    I'm going in April also. We have an "Official April 2013" thread going, so come join us. Plus, there is a "challenge" on the WW site for losing weight for our Disney trips.

    Perhaps this is a bad way to think, but I find that having the trip to look forward to encourages me to eat properly now. You see, I tell myself, "Why eat that cupcake now when you can have one of those beautiful Disney cupcakes in April?" or "There's a Mickey pretzel in my future, I can eat this granola bar for now." There are a few things I intend to eat at WDW that I put in the category of "can't really get it any other place, so I will allow myself these treats." There's a salted caramel bar at Karamel Kuche, a funnel cake at either the American Pavilion or Liberty Square, and or course the cinnamon roll.

    I joined WW last March and hope to have 80 lbs off by our Disney trip. WI is today for me and I know I will be up because I was sick last week and was down 4.8 pounds. According to my scale, I am now up 3 pounds, but then that would level out to a 1.8 lb actual loss over two weeks, and I'm good with that!

    Down 1.2, 87.8 overall! I have less than 30 pounds to go!

    This will be my first ever Thanksgiving during weight loss. I always quit before Thanksgiving before! I have looked at my recipes and made some healthy switches, plus added an extra veggie dish. I am going to weigh Friday just to see what happens!

    As I expected, after being sick last week and down 4.8, I was up this week 3.6. So total real loss for two weeks was 1.2, which is slower than I've been losing. But I still think I can make that 70 lb goal by Christmas. I'm officially down 63 lbs. now.

    There was a lady there that missed last week because she was in Disney. Her two-week loss was 1.2! So, she didn't gain any Disney pounds. I don't think that will be my story after our April trip. :rotfl:

    I eat 4 or 5 every day. :rolleyes::rolleyes: I decided that all those bananas likely had something to do with my struggle the last little while so this week I only had 4 during the whole week. I actually did see my scale go down since last Wednesday, however, yesterday I made chocolate chip cookies. Need I say more?! :rolleyes1:rolleyes1

    You gals are all so amazing. I reached my goal three weeks ago and mentally set myself up to lose another 5. I find myself not tracking, not running and having an extra piece of bread here and there. I stuck with ww to get through the holidays but what good is it if i am sabotaging myself?

    You too! Just went to WI (one of 10, I think) -- up 2.0 pounds, making me exactly even with where I was a month ago. Trips, family visits, and driving in to the office (resulting in no walking to the train station to and from) helped to stall the weight loss.

    Onward, though! Have a great week!

    I went to my meeting, but skipped weigh in. I was "good" all the way through Wednesday night but I knew I would be up so I skipped the weigh in for my own mental health. There were 8 of us there and we received a free WW thermal Lunch Box :cool1:. It's really nice!

    Free lunch bags? How cool!

    I was down .6 for the week, which I view as miraculous considering the unfortunate encounter I had with some Belgian chocolates earlier in the week. So I'm happy. That's 13.6 so far.

    We had 10 people or thereabouts at our meeting today. I'm curious about what the new thing is that they're going to announce/release next week.

    I've lost 1.4 this week, 89.2 overall! I almost fell of the scale! Though I was as careful as I could be for Thanksgiving. I still ate my favorite things, but I modified them and ate much smaller portions. I tracked every day, even on Thanksgiving. The fact that we did all of the cooking helped, because I had control over all of the ingredients. Christmas will be more of a challenge, because it's not at my house!

    Great job! I survived Thanksgiving and my parents from out-of-town through Saturday, had losses on my home scale each day. And then yesterday we hit the "no-more-turkey-please" wall and got pizza. This morning I was up .2 . Figures! Survive the hard part and then blow it with pizza. :lmao:

    Up 2 lbs. I'd blame it on Thanksgiving.. but it was an all week thing.
    WW receptionist told me the week prior (when I maintained) that I might not be eating enough points with my running. So apparently I went out and ate too many extras ;)
    NSV was that I shaved 8 minutes (!) off of my 5k time from when I started racing in September. WW leader gave me 33 bravos- one for each minute of my time-- which totally cracked me up. She said to decorate my sneakers and anything else I bring with me when I run. I may stick a few on my ipod. ;)

    I was thinking about a few extra meetings over the next couple weeks, or staying through the power start meetings again. I've had two weeks of small gains and since I'm at the same weight where I've quit three times (because I hit what I felt were plateaus but were probably just fear and not comprehending that this is FOREVER...I will NEVER be able to eat all that I want to eat, so it's a choice of being a higher weight where I hat myself and feel ugly and am unhealthy, or sticking with WW and watching the things I eat and being careful for the rest of my life), I figured that some extra motivation would be good.

    aw, we just got bravo stickers!




    I'm back to where I was 11/3. If the trend continues I'll have to re-evaluate eating all points. Probably just a bit of lax tracking, though, so that's being changed now. I feel great, but I'm not stopping here this time. I don't feel great enough to accept this weight and size.

    Thanks Jessie! We spent our long Thanksgiving weekend in Toronto again this year. It was lots of fun. I always think of you when we're in Canada. We did lots of walking -- and plenty of eating.

    That's amazing. You rock! Isn't it great that you can still have your favorite things?

    I think there are a few of us that need a "re-commitment ceremony" or somthing. I'm with you. I want to lose 10 pounds by the end of the year, which would put me back at Lifetime. I think I'll need to choose a more reasonable, achievable goal. WI is tomorrow, so I'll see where I'm at and go from there.

    A "re-commitment ceremony" sounds like a good idea! How are things in MI? We are hoping to move back home next year. I agree, we need to choose more reasonable goals. I should be happy with losing the 1.6 I gained and then maintaining through the holidays.
