CeeJay, I'm the opposite. If I start avoiding the scale, it's because I don't want to deal with the results of my poor choices. I was 286.5 this morning. I have got to start walking and using my bike more regularly. We did a lot of walking yesterday and stair climbing. When did I become an old person with clicky knees??? Anyway, good on you for doing so well!

ShelBl, I'm sorry things are so hard at work.

Our farmers' market has everything and it is less expensive than cage free, grass fed at the grocery. I don't really like to eat meat so I'm always trying to get by without cooking it. My family is not convinced. We end up eating a lot of pasta and rice with vegetables or beans or whatever is in season. I LOVE trying new things but my husband and kid are not so adventurous. Have you tried Pinterest for ideas?

My goal is to drag myself DIRECTLY to a WW meeting as soon as I put my kid on the bus Tuesday morning. It will be a race to get there, but all of the times are inconvenient for me in one way or another, might as well go early and get it out of the way. I would like to be in the 270s by Easter, which is totally reasonable if I would just stop messing around.

I did it! I finally went to a meeting! I don't think this will be "my" meeting but I went! The leader is nice and she's lost over 100 pounds. She gets emotional talking about it, which I appreciate. I feel like the whole process is pretty fresh in her mind and she gets it. It's a small group of about 12 - 15 and they all know each other and the next youngest person is easily 20 years older than I am. I am fine with that, 8.30 on a Tuesday is a tough time to make. I'm going to try the same leader at another time and see how that goes. Anyway, I went and that is the important thing.

TheSecondHalf YAY!!! I've been really thinking of joining up again and doing meetings this time instead of online. Super happy for you that you made one!

You should! We could compare notes

They have this Quick Start thing, which is new to me. I am just tracking and trying to follow the healthy guidelines this week because I had just done all my grocery shopping for this week and Quick Start is kind of different. It looks easy to follow and pretty basic. There are recipes or guidelines - like a template. I like that idea, I just wasn't prepared for it.

Usually sat around 200 which is still not ideal for me but i moved and got lazy thus 298 was born. now been back on IP for a week.. weigh in tomorrow and i hope its good news.

Hi to everyone and good luck on your journeys

Hi and welcome! Best of luck to you!

I'm changing my profile and ticker to reflect my WW weigh in (as it turns out you weigh more after breakfast and fully clothed at a WW meeting than you do first thing in the am and not so fully clothed although there are those people at every early morning meeting who strip down to a jog bra and running shorts. I am not those people. I'll take the extra pounds). My first goal is 15 pounds.

pegeye welcome! Love the avatar.

TheSecondHalf I wouldn't strip down now but when I'm skinnier, watch out. I'll be the one arrested for public indecency!

FINALLY under the mark!! 288 yesterday morning, and when I went to the doctor today she informed me that I'm down 15 pounds over all since seeing her last. Which was June, but whatever. I'll take 15 down any day.

Got an offer for a new job, so I don't have to stress about what I'm going to do after Tuesday. It looks like I'll be on a closer schedule to hubby's, which means we can walk the dogs and things. He wants to go to the gym, and I got the T25 workout thing in an insane attempt to motivate myself.

I'm kinda terrified, to be honest. It's reportedly kicks the *** of moderately in shape people, so I have no hope. Yet.

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

There is no way I'm going to make it to my WW meeting this morning. It's a tight squeeze anyway but I am soooooooo sleepy! Our dog still has kennel cough (though he's getting better) and every time he coughs at night I feel obligated to sit up with him and sympathize (scratch ears, rub belly) because he's just so pitiful. ANYWAY as soon as I get this child on the bus I'm taking a nap.

There's a meeting at ten on Thursday that will be much easier to make and I'm pretty sure I've lost five pounds - I want that sticker!

Hope everyone is doing well!

Hi Ladies,

I am still here. Did 10 great days and then 6 not so great. Such is life. Still trying! Got down to 290 but don't think I am still there.

TheSecondHalf-Yay for 286 and for going to the meeting.

ShelBl-yay for also being under 290- I am going to have to chase you and TheSecondHalf. Great news about the job- hope everything goes well for you.

pegeye- welcome to this thread.

Hello Ladies

All is well here. The next time I am on the scale I am hoping to be out of the 290's. If I am- well yay, if not, then the next time I will be there. The book The Diet Fix is really helping me.

Bunny1973- congratulations on your weight loss. Keep on singing.

Hope everyone has a great Sunday!

mb I'm with you, I'm dancing that fine line right now, I am so nervous my scale will tell me I'm back up over 300. Even IF I know that based on what I've ate thats really NOT possible. (or would have to be due to odd water retention etc). Hopefully I will get to know you gals a little ... I know I'll be "here" for a while but hopefuly not too too long, I still have a long journey ahead of me to a healthier weight.
