I've been hanging around the trip planning boards but thought I'd pop over here... I was a really good girl a couple years ago. I joined WW. I lost 80 lbs. Everything was going so well I thought I didn't need to keep up with WW anymore. So I stopped. And the pounds slowly returned...well 60 of them anyway. I thought going to meetings might be enough to kick me into high gear. So I started going to meetings (instead of online like I'd done before). But that proved to be too costly for me so I stopped. Then came my brother's wedding. I was a bridesmaid so I needed to be able to look better in the dress (strapless even!). I started back on WW Online and lost 30 lbs. I'd also been working at a manual labor type job (unloading frieght trailers with pallet jacks, moving stuff between 100 and 1000 pounds for 3-6 hours a night three nights a week) so that helped a bit too. Then..well then I ran into some financial issues where I really didn't have money to spend on healthy food. I've been yo-yo'ing these 10 lbs for about 6 months or so. It's not even like I'm doing all the right things, I know I'm not. So instead of having lost 30 lbs I've technically only lost 20. Things finally got back on top and I started eating healthy again, and got released to go back to Curves (I can't do weight training because of health issues, so I'm not doing the freight job anymore either). And I got hit with a slew of medical bills, things insurance didn't cover. So I'm back to being strapped for cash again. It's so frustrating that it costs so much to eat healthy!!!!!!! I've cut back on everything I can, including WW Online. I have enough meal ideas stored up on my computer that I can make menus from that for a time, at least til I loose another 16 lbs and drop point ranges. I've arranged my meals so that I eat a lot of the same thing (it's cheaper that way) but I try to alternate at least what I have for dinner each week. I went to SavingDinner.com and am using their crockpot ideas. Since it's only me, I make up one dinner and divide it into 6 containers. That takes care of my dinners for the week since one night a week I go to a potluck. I go to Curves 3 times a week. I make sure I drink 1 bottle of water when I'm there. I bought a bunch of those 16 oz water bottles at Target's One-Spot so that's what I mean when I say 1 bottle of water. I take another full with me to work and try to refill it while I'm there. And then one more water bottle at home. Doesn't always work that way but I try. Anyway...I'm just trying to get back to where I was when I first lost 80 lbs. It'll help my health situation too. And I know I can do it cuz I did it before. I'm not aiming drastic or anything, it's actually the higher end of the 'healthy' range for my height. I'm just feeling very discouraged at the moment. I don't want to resort to pb&j sanwiches and mac&cheese. So I'm doing the best I can to avoid it. Anyway so Hi. I'm here.
