Ok, so is this dumb or what? I was so bummed about gaining a pound that I didn't deserve that I ate like a fool Thursday night and Friday. I am back on track today. No more foolishness!! I am repeating my mantra over and over in my head - I will NOT be fat!

jhawk - Sorry about your gain also! We can win this!

Nona - Welcome, welcome! We always love new people. Congrats on reaching your lifetime!! I'm impressed. I'm sure you can get that 9 pounds off in no time.

I have been forcing myself to post my weight on this goal thread - I didn't with the Valentines Day goal because I was unhappy with myself and my ups and downs in 2000. But I figure I have to face it and be accountable.

Whatever it takes - Rabbit

I forgot to set a challenge for myself earlier so I am doing it now. I do fine getting my veggies in (it's all that salad I eat) but not my fruit. So I'm challenging myself to: Add one fruit per day.

Happy Monday, All.

Here's hoping for a better week this week. I had a hard time getting the bad eating habits back under control after last week, but I think I have now. I learned what a powerful monster stress eating can be, that is for sure. You are right though, Rabbit, we can win this. Hang in there...

Nona - Welcome! Good for you for taking control after only a small gain. I had previously lost 25 lbs., never made it to goal, then gained about 15 of those back, so I am still working on making up lost ground. The sooner you take control the better.

Well, after my gain last week I am back at ground zero for the SPD challenge. Now I've got to "double time" it to the finish line.

Goal: -5
So Far: -0
To Go: -5

Have a great week all!
Jhawk

Does a goal have to be a number on the scale? Mine is not so much seeing a drop, but being able to MOVE! I signed up for an 8K (approximately 5 miles) race on St. Patrick's Day, and my goal is to run the whole thing (no walking). I'm guessing this will take me close to an hour!

I suppose I can get a scale # goal, too. I would like to have dropped 9 poinds by then. I know that's a little high, but I always lose the most my first few weeks on WW, so I think it's doable!

jhawk - I don't know if I mentioned it but I am making up lost ground also- still. I was down to 165.5 last May which is a little less than my SPD goal. And if I don't quit eating, I will not get there. My I've got to get myself going!!

Maggie - your goal can be anything you chose!! Cool that you want to run that race. I'll be cheering for you from here.

Hi everyone! Just stopped by to say hi and to let you know I finally got to go to a weight watchers meeting. Since there is no registration fee until March 3rd I decided now was the time to go. I still didn't feel like I was ready to commit but I'm glad I made myself go. I didn't like what I saw on the scale but I did enjoy the meeting. I to am trying to get off the 15 lbs. I've gained back.
Good luck to everyone for your SPD goal!
For now mine is to take it one day at a time!
Take care and stay strong! freesha

Good Morning Everyone,

Well WI last night didn't go well. I gained a pound. But I didn't journal all week and I know I overeat w/o realizing it if I don't write it down.

Jhawk and Rabbit - Sorry about the gains looks like we've all hit a mid winter slump. Here's hoping we can turn it around

Nona & Maggie - Welcome

Freesha - Good Luck back at WW. Sometimes starting is the hardest step.

Well, gotta work.

Good morning and Happy Wedensday everyone!
Today is my fifth day and I'm glad to say I'm doing well. After the first couple days its gotten easier. I must say I had and attitude when I started. I told my DH Sat. "I'm going to eat what I want and just write down the points." But even though I ate at the high end of my points the journaling did make me think about what I was eating. And I'm glad to say the reluctant attitude is gone now. Though I do hope that I can stick with it this weekend. I'm a little nervous because we are going out to dinner with friends on Sat. . I'm hoping to eat low points during the day and stick pretty close to program for dinner. We're going out for Mexican food. One of my favorites!
I hope everyone has a good day!
Take care and stay strong! Julie

Tech - I sure hope we can turn this around too - and soon!

Freesha - Nice to hear of someone doing well!!

I have weigh in tomorrow night and I don't think it will be good. This time I will deserve it though. And I have to miss next week's meeting as I will be out of town.

Good morning!
Rabbit - I'm glad to hear your are going to your meeting this week. In the past when I thought I was up a pound I wouldn't go. This time I'm going to make myself go even if I don't feel like it. That is the time that we really need the encouragment and motivation. Best of luck!

jhawk - I'm glad to hear your getting back on track after last week.

TechAlum - best of luck on your journaling this week.

I hope everyone has a great Op day! Julie

Happy Friday All

Last week was "one of those" weeks and I saw no possible way it could get worse, but lo and behold, it did. I wouldn't dare bore you with the details, but let's just say I am really ready for this week to be over too. I lost 1/2 lb. this morning, so that was nice, but I'm still way off of my SPD goal.

Merfle - how is "moving" going for you? Are you getting ready for the 8K? Good for you for doing that - it will feel so good to accomplish that.

Rabbit - I can relate to your difficulties this week. And even though we are both making up lost ground, I suppose we should look at the bright side and be glad we haven't given up entirely. This weight loss thing has always been such a struggle for me, but I keep telling myself that once I conquer it - it will be for good. I hope the saying "that which does not kill us only makes us stronger" is true, 'cause I am gonna be really strong if I ever make it to the finish line.

Freesha - Welcome. Good for you for tackling this again. I always tell myself that I should "fake until I make it" and it appears that has worked for you as well. Good luck and hang in there.

Tech - Those darn one pound gains are rampant this week, huh? I agree that this is definitely a mid-winter slump. I also agree that not journaling is probably a big contributor. I haven't journaled in a couple of weeks either and I've paid the price...the only way I managed a small loss this week was that I was too busy/stressed to eat regularly 'cause what I did eat was crap. Hang in there. We can beat this.

I hope you all have a great weekend. Here is to a better week next week!

SPD Goal: -5 lbs.
So Far: -1/2 lb.
To Go: -4 1/2 lbs.

As I suspected I had a gain this week. I gained 1/2 pound. Before I went I thought I might pull off a maintain, but no such luck. I'm way off my goal this time. But I will not give up! On the good side, I lost 3.5 inches in February!! So glad that I am tracking that also. As I will be gone all of next week, my next weigh in will be the 15th, the last one before this goal. I'll do the best I can in the time left. Then on to Easter!!

jhawk - congrats on your loss! You are so right about not giving up. Even making up lost ground, atleast we're headed in the right direction. If I didn't try, it would be disaster, I'm sure!

Tech - a fleeting thought entered my mind about not going, but I knew I had to. This morning I SO did not want to get up for my workout and this song started playing in my head - nowhere to run to baby, nowhere to hide. So true!

Have a good weekend all. Rabbit

Hello all...

This new look is weird! I am sure I will get used to it.

I hope everyone had a good weekend. I was actually ready for the new week to start after the miserable week I had last week. I made it back to the gym this morning after a week off, even though I have chest congestion and have heard you shouldn't exercise if your symptoms are "below the neck"...I needed to exercise and I figure anytime I actually want or need to do it, I should, because that is a rarity. I took it easy, but it felt good to be there. I am a bottomless pit with food today though...not everything could "click" at once, I guess.

Rabbit, sorry about the gain, but don't give up. The lost inches are GREAT! I have been meaning to take my measurements for about 6 weeks now and I just can't remember to do that...you have inspired me though. Maybe I'll do that this weekend...

Well, back to work. Have a great week everyone!

Good morning everyone! I hope you are all having a good week so far.
Saturday I had my 2nd weigh in and I was down 4lbs.
I always do pretty good the first week cause I'm usually retaining a lot of water. Oh well I'll take it, even if most of it was water. I'm having a good week so far. Saturday night we went out for dinner and I went over my points but have been staying within my points since then.
I finally met someone that likes to walk and ride bikes so I'm going to walk with her this afternoon.
Have a great day! Julie
