Weight Watchers 2011

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 

It's been a few months since I followed a WW thread here and I don't see a current thread. Is anyone out there?

 

I am a lifetime member. In January I went 5 pounds above my range. This past month or so I started following the new plan (I love the free fruit) and am back in my weight range.

 

I'd love to hear how others are doing.

I'm here! I had great success on Weight Watchers in 2007 to 2009. I had lost 60+ pounds, but then I had a bunch of personal drama, quit the plan, and gained back 45 pounds. shake.gif

 

I started over at the beginning of this year at 193. I weighed in today at 174.2. I've got 1.2 pounds to go until I get my 10% award. Hopefully that will happen next Friday.

Good luck.

How is WW going for you?  I just rejoined last week.  The last time I went to WW faithfully, I lost 65 pounds.  That was back in 2002 - 2003.  Then I had another baby and gained all of that back plus another 20 pounds.  Boo.

 

I need to find my Lifetime number.   At least there is that plus - once I get down to my Lifetime weight again, I won't need to pay the meeting fees for the 6 weeks of maintenance.

 

The new e-tools program is really cool!  I really like tracking online and on my phone.  I think I can keep up with it a whole lot better that way.  Having the restaurant guide with me on my phone will be a big help.

 

I am determined to get my weight down.  I've tried so many times in the last 7 years.  It's time to just get it done.  I'm tired of feeling bad about myself.

I just joined for the 1st time in an effort to lose 20lbs or so. I've only been at it for a few days actually but I feel like it's keeping me honest and helping me be more deliberate about getting a daily walk in.

 

Last week when I joined it was at the end of a day and when I logged my points for that day I was WAY over... So learning to eat right is sorta fun. Today I was 1 point under! :) It's helping me make better choices.

Bumping this up to see if there are any Weight Watchers still out there?  Maybe there's a more recent thread I've missed?  I started about a month ago and would love some support from my MDC mamas!!

I'm here, though having difficulties. My daughter went on a really restricted diet so I'm exploring new food options and loving it a bit too much. Plus my husband's work hours were cut so I've gone back to work part-time, but my schedule is erratic and requires a lot of car time so I've been hitting up the drive-thrus.

 

Plus I just like to eat and I haven't had the reserves to limit myself. I'm not sure how to get back on the wagon.

So tonight I told my husband I am fat in front of our 5 year old son. I usually don't do this since I don't want to get into the whole body image thing. So I followed up with, "I'm really not fat. I'm okay." (Which is true, I just like to be thinner.) My son said, "Welllllll, you're a little bit fat." I asked him where and he pointed to my stomach.

 

Maybe I found my motivator to start counting points again.

Ugh how mortifying.  Kinda like when DD pointed to me and asked why I have two chins.  eyesroll.gif  Only honest people in this world are children and drunk people.

 

I'm vegan and soy free so I hear you on the restrictions.  It's slowly getting easier doing the no soy, even though I was heavily dependent on it for years.  Trying to see if it helps with DS's reflux.

 

So far, it's been 5 weeks and I've lost 10.6 lbs.  I'm down 6" off my waist!  Yesterday I pulled on pre-preg single digit size jeans for the first time!  DS is 11 weeks old tomorrow so I'm really excited I'm already back in some normal clothes!!  I still have 17 lbs to lose to get to pre-preg weight, though.  So, still chugging along.   Also keeping an eye on milk supply as DS is exclusively bf'ed.

 

Are you doing ww online or in person/meetings?  I'm just doing online.  I like it a lot.

I'm technically still here :) Threw myself off the bandwagon this week just cuz. Too much going on to keep logging what I eat on the computer. Meh. Ok, so a "week off" ~ I intend to start again on Wed which is my weigh-day. It's been going well so far, so I am motivated to keep up with it!

My son's comment yesterday has motivated me today. Not sure how many points I ate because I haven't calculated them for the foods I froze, but since I limited myself I think I'm okay. I'm actually a lifetimer (though I'm out of my range.) I haven't been to a meeting in forever because I'm working now and my husband's hours are less and we just haven't gotten a routine going. Perhaps I'll sign up online so I can calculate the points in recipes, but since I could just do it with a calculator I might save the money. Who knows.

Hi everyone!  I'm going for WW again.  After one week of working out hard, tracking consistently, and feeling grumpy and hungry I'm only .8 of a lb. down.  I'd like to lose 20 total to get to my goal so I'm feeling a bit discouraged today...  I'm finding it so much more difficult to bounce back after baby #2.  I'm also tandem nursing so I guess slow and steady weight loss is my best bet for milk supply... I'm still impatient though.

I'm envious of your 0.8 pound loss. I just can't get on track. 

 

When I attained lifetime (I'm a bit out of my range right now) I did it 0.2 pounds a week. I took the attitude that it was a loss and that's all that mattered. There were a few weeks when I lost more, but as long as I lost 0.2 I was okay.
