WW Clubs and Groups - Thursday Weigh-Ins for August
08-06-2007, 09:37 AM
Well, since it's August, I thought we needed a new thread. I know it isn't Thursday, but I weighed this morning, and I was down 2 pounds! I changed my tracker because it made me feel pretty good!! When I journal and drink my water, I lose. Why don't I always do that??????
Hopefully everyone will have a loss this week!!!

Hi Tammy! Congrats on that great loss!
I weighed on Thursday. I was down 1.2lbs this week. Back to where I was a month ago. Now, if I can just get control over my eating, maybe I'll start to truly loose some weight instead of yoyoing. The kids go back to school next week. Hopefully that will help.

Thanks Terry and congrats on your loss also. With the kids going back to school, it should be easier to make better choices without them, shouldn't it?
Thanks for starting a new thread, Tammy.
Congrats on that loss.
I, too, lose when I drink more water than Diet Cokes. :lol:
Yeah, Terry!!! Now that you're back down, you can start losing again.
I'm hoping the scales will be good to me----some day!
08-07-2007, 06:32 AM
Well, apparently something I am doing is working. I moved my butterfly another notch. I know I should wait until Thursday, but if the number on the scale is moving in the right direction, so is my butterfly!!
Tina, you've done great. We need to just keep drinking that water. Easier said than done, right???
08-08-2007, 06:11 PM
I tell you what, I'm not looking foward to WI tomorrow. This last week hasn't been good at all. I'm planning on using my no weigh in pass and then getting back on program. *sigh* I keep telling myself that I can do this.
08-08-2007, 08:31 PM
Dori, I can relate! I dreaded going to WI so many times!! I no longer attend meetings, but I am still attempting the program (or close to it) at home.
Good luck to everyone tomorrow!! Since I weighed during the week and marked a loss on the tracker, I'm not expecting anything tomorrow.
Dori, you can do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tammy, moving that butterfly any day of the week is great. :D
I forgot all about weighing today. I'm not feeling good (female stuff). I think I'll call and go in to the gyn tomorrow.
Cantal, how was weigh-in??? Or, maybe you are in Paris!
How did everyone do?
08-10-2007, 09:29 PM
I was in the Tuesday thread, but everyone bailed. Hope I don't have the same effect here :D I'm having trouble with the water, too. I was down .2 then up .2 this week, so I'm kind of stuck, and I'm thinking it has to be the water, or lack thereof. I exercised and tracked, but didn't lose, but I know I did terrible with the water, like today, I'm drinking my first glass now at 9:30 p.m. sheesh
08-10-2007, 09:43 PM
Tammy and Terry: I lost 0.8 pounds this past Thursday!!! Yeah!
Do either of you have any tips on controlling Weekend eating? I seem to use them all up on the weekend. I think I'm averaging about 45 points instead of the allowed 35 per week. I need some control!!!!:o
08-10-2007, 10:23 PM
Keli, welcome!!! We won't leave you. We've been together too long. I finished a bottle of water about 9:00, so I managed to get in 8 servings today. I think the water and the journaling really make a difference for me, so I just need to DO it!!!
Trish, good for you on the loss!!! When I know that I'm going to be eating more in a meal, I cut way back on the other meals during the day. I have also gone over those 35 too. Are there days that you don't use any? Maybe it all equals out in the end??? Maybe???
08-11-2007, 08:37 AM
Congrats for all the losers. I didn't go to WI on Thursday. I know I should have, but the heat here is unbearable. You walk out the door and it feels like you're melting. Sigh. Perhaps this upcoming week will be a lot better.
Keli :welcome3: Like Tammy said, we are here for the long haul. We've been together for a very long time and love it!!!! Good luck!
Trish, congratulations on your loss!!! About the weekend eating---try something very simple for breakfast, toast or yogurt and fruit. A salad for lunch on Saturday is always good. If you must eat at a fast food place, get grilled chicken.
Then, you can enjoy suppers Sat. and Sun. Hope that helps.
Dori, I know what you mean about heat!!!!!!! Our heat index has been in the 100's all week. And, today thru Tuesday, the actual temp will be 101 and 102. What's going on? Maybe we can melt away some pounds. :lol:
Tammy, that's fantastic, drinking all that water. glub, glub, glub....
08-11-2007, 02:36 PM
Congrats to all on your loses!
I was up this week, by 1.2lbs. :( It was a busy week and there were several days I didn't even try to stay on program. But, I figure those days don't come very often and they aren't the reason I gained the weight in the first place. It is the day-to-day out-of-control eating that did the damage. Yesterday was another bad day, but the kids go back to school Monday :hat: and we should get back to a more manageable routine, so from now til Thanksgiving I hope to make up for lost time.
08-11-2007, 02:59 PM
Dori, I don't like heat at all. I was miserable when we made our trip to florida to visit Bob's brother.
Terry, I'm having one of those days today! Bob brought home rolls from the little bakery in town for breakfast. We ate lunch about 1:00, and he made pork chops, mashed potatoes, gravy, peas. I had made cucumbers and onions the other day, so at least I was able to eat some low point foods with the meal!! Like you say, it isn't an everyday thing.
Let's do it this week!!
08-12-2007, 12:50 PM
I just rejoined ww 08/08/07 hoping to stick with it this time :) I haven't really posted alot so this is kinda new to me. I am very inspired by everyones support and there stories. Does everyone post their wi weekly?
Please make yourself at home here.
Yes, we post our weigh-in results here each week.
We also have a "Thursday Chatters" thread where we do lots of talking. You will find we offer lots of support and advice.
Hope everyone is having a good OP weekend.
08-12-2007, 03:10 PM
Welcome Upsgirl!! It's a pretty good crew here. On the chatters thread, we try to solve all of the problems of the world. Ha! We do have fun, and we are all very supportive of each other. From your numbers on the side, it looks like you have had some success already! Way to go!!!
08-17-2007, 09:36 AM
Morning ladies!! I weighed this morning, and I am the same. I can deal with it. Hope the rest of you have better luck at your weigh in this week!!
08-18-2007, 09:34 AM
You-know-who is addicted to the scales. I was down a pound this morning, so I've moved the butterfly. The first football game is the 30th, and I don't think we'll see Tim until then. I'd like to be down a couple more by then.
08-24-2007, 07:22 AM
No loss, no gain yesterday. I have a week until the game to get a couple more pounds off. I might see Tim this weekend though. He needs a few things from home, so instead of him coming here, I thought I'd run over there. He works both nights this weekend.
08-24-2007, 08:45 AM
No change for the past two weeks for me. Was up last week by 0.6lbs and down the same this week. That pretty much sums up my summer. I guess treading water is better than giving up and drowning, but somehow I have got to get back on track. Giving up is just not an option.
So, where is everyone else? Tammy, thanks for carrying on the torch for us!
No loss for me. Maybe with summer "officially" ending, we'll have a metabolism change. It stays hot here until the end of October so I don't see a let up that way. :)
Everyone take care!
08-24-2007, 11:42 AM
Terry, I agree about the treading water!
Next week we'll all have a loss!!
08-24-2007, 09:27 PM
I was on vacation last week. When I returned to weigh in after missing one week, I gained 1.8 pounds. I'm feeling a little bummed. :(:mad:
There is next week!
08-25-2007, 07:53 AM
Trish, that 1.8 will be gone in no time!! Hang in there!!!! Vacations do that to us, don't they?
Trish, I agree with Tammy. You'll get taht weight off in no time!!!!!
upsgirl and Keli, how did y'all do this week?
Okay everyone------tomorrow is the last weigh-in for August.
Good luck to all of us!!!!!!!
08-30-2007, 11:16 AM
Well, no loss again! Boooooooo!!!!! I thought I did really well this week, but I know I need to get in more exercise. I start water aerobics next week, so that will help get me focused more. I guess it's not a gain, so that's good. I sure wish I could move my butterfly!!!
Good luck to the rest of you!!
We're leaving in an hour or so for Ball State. We're staying overnight after tonight's football game. They are playing my alma mater, so I told Tim that I was wearing a Miami University shirt. He rolled his eyes at me. lol
08-30-2007, 06:28 PM
I lost 0.8 pounds this week!!!! :carrot:
Next week will be more!!!!:D:D
Wow, Trish that is a great loss!!!!! Congratulations
Tammy, I bet that water aerobics will do the trick next week.
Terry, how did you do?
No swimming fish for me this week.
08-31-2007, 11:44 AM
Trish, congrats on the loss!!
Your fish and my butterfly are stuck!!
08-31-2007, 06:11 PM
Weigh in yesterday went well. Loss of 2.2. I'm still up from my original start weight, but that's okay.
08-31-2007, 06:14 PM
Dori, good for you on the loss!!! We WILL do this!!
08-31-2007, 09:17 PM
:bravo: for the weight loss.
