My name is Tracy. I have been following Weight Watchers for almost 6 months now! I absolutly love this program. I haven't been able to atend meetings though because of money right now. I actually and doing the program with my sister Amanda and we do weekly weigh-ins at each other's houses! I have lost 30lbs in the past 6 months but have gained back about 3 lbs. I am going to do an offical weigh-in tomorrow morning...
anyway for about 3 weeks I haven't been tracking my points. I have been eating pretty much whatever I felt like. I have not been doing well, I have not been feeling well either. My sister and I were hunting around for a why to remotivate and recommit to our weight loss efforts! We purchase new diet journals with lots of places to record points and other info on what we eat...also exersice etc... It is call the I will lose weight this time! Diet Journal... I love that name! Anyway it has enough space to record 6 months worth of jood journals.
Our first goal is to record Everything we eat and then also record the food and points online as well. I have created this thread to keep my sister and I honest but please feel free to join in or comment or whatever!
We definatley need encoragement~
So I need to start saying my mantra when I feel like eating something that is not a good choice.... I am sexy let's keep it that way!
Tomorrow is the first day we will be posting what we have eaten/points etc... See ya all then!
Wanna be a loser

Way to go Tracy. Congratulations. 27 pounds is 108 sticks of butter. As 4 sticks of butter weighs a pound. The 27 pound loss is almost 3 -10 pound bags of potatoes. Are you doing the flex or the core plan? I am not sure if you saw or not, there is a forum for people doing ww at home.
Have a great day and good luck on your weigh in tomorrow morning.

Fantastic Tracy, on your weight loss! You should be very proud of yourself, and it definitely helps to have someone doing it with you!
There are plenty of different forums here, feel free to jump in and introduce yourself in any of them.
I'm from MI as well, us Michiganders need to stick together! :)

Let me introduce myself I'm Tracy's sister.... Amanda.....
Just wanted to say: Damn Tracy, I know we were talking about starting a thread to post our daily food intake & points early this morning. But I didn't think you would make the thread today!!! You are definitely serious about getting back on track again!!
I know that We Can Do It this time!!! :carrot:
I will weigh myself tomorrow morning and change my signature thing to my current weight. I am not looking forward to moving it up in pounds, I hope that I haven't gained too much weight in the last three weeks :(
But I'm back on track and Tomorrow is a new Day!!! My goal for this week is to right down EVERYTHING that I eat and to post it here in this thread.
We can do this Tracy!!!
See you online tomorrow :cheer:

Where are youoooo??? Remember Our goal for the week was to post what we ate every day!! I'll be calling you on the phone tomorrow to see what's going on with you...
Well as for me I have'nt been feeling very motivated? I just don't know why?
I talked to aaron tonight and he was drunk and telling me how he got some girls number at the bar during a super bowl party. And it made me think damn he's going to get another girl before I find another boyfriend...and it made me think a little more about how I really want to lose all the weight I have gained. So I can go out and find another man...
But anyway after getting off the phone with as*hole, I feel much more motivated to lose weight!! Tomorrow I am going to go to kmart and buy that damn eliptical machine I have been talking about getting! And I will lose this damn extra weight! No more candy for me! That is my goal for next week I will not buy a single piece of candy! which will be very hard! But I can do it, I know I can...
