I was searching for a Wed Weigh in. It looks like some folks might be interested, so let's get this going! I have noticed that the WW forums overall don't have a lot of new activity. Maybe we could change that?!?
Anyway, I don't weigh in until this evening, so I will come back and post (hopefully a loss) then.
Good luck to everyone today. Hope the scale is good to you. Stay OP and enjoy your day!

September 20: 131.5 - lost 2.5 pounds
Congratulations econerd, JennyT and Old Hickory Chick!! :)
What are you working on this week, ladies? I'm trying to get some exercise in everyday this week. I already miss two days this week because I was sick, but am trying to do at least 30 mins of walking for the rest of the week.
01-26-2011, 10:51 PM
woah...nobody uses this thread?
I'll use this thread as a sort of preening moment! lol
Lost 1.6 pounds today! 2.4 last!!
First big losses on WW. Sooo excited!
01-27-2011, 08:19 AM
:carrot: WW meeting last night lost .5 lbs, slow and steady wins the race!!!
02-03-2011, 03:13 PM
I would also like to join in Wednesday weigh-in group.
I've been trying to lose those pounds for the last 3 years but only with ww I had some result.
Now I have to be back on track because Christmas was a bit disastrous on my diet..so here I am!:hat:
Yesterday's weigh :195.6 pounds
Good luck everybody!:goodluck:
(I sometimes weigh on Sundays too, in that case I'll let you know)
02-07-2011, 04:25 AM
Good morning! Nobody is here???
Well, so far I have only lost 1 pound:).
So today 194.6 (I could have lost more I know:D but that's ok as fas I don't go up!)
02-09-2011, 02:53 AM
As I can see, nobody is here but I'll keep on posting as this keeps me motivated!
Today weigh-in: 193.4!
That means a loss of 2.2 pounds in less than a week!
I'm satsified as long as the scale keeps going down!
See you soon!
02-11-2011, 05:08 PM
Yup, we need a bunch of Wednesday weighers here! I do my WW weigh-in on Wednesdays simply because I'm a minister who undertakes a mandatory sunrise-to-sunset fast every Wednesday, so why not get weighed in with an empty belly each week??? ;)
Anyways, I just completed 3 weeks on the WW program. My weekly weight-loss on Wednesday was 0.8 pounds, for a grand total of 9.0 pounds so far.
My experience so far: it's easier to fast entirely than to eat moderately. Isn't that weird? But eating moderately is what will keep me losing weight for the long haul, so I'm willing to learn how to deal with it.
02-11-2011, 08:00 PM
Wow I totally forgot about this thread! I was down 0.8 this week too :)
02-12-2011, 05:37 PM
Hi I'm going to be a Wednesday weigh-in'er starting this week. I just rejoined this morning. First time on points plus.
02-15-2011, 10:29 PM
first official weigh in tomorrow yay!
02-16-2011, 02:59 AM
No loss today! Does anybody else have water retention at ovulation??I feel sore all over...
02-17-2011, 08:01 PM
LouLou, I used to gain a shoe size during ovulation, and it didn't go away till Auntie Flo arrived. I literally had different shoes for Days 1-14 and Days 15-28. Nowadays, my dear old auntie no longer comes to visit, and unfortunately my feet are stuck at the bigger size permanently. *sigh*
Sorry for the delay in writing about my weigh-in. Hubby had surgery (he's doing fine), and I got into WW for a Wednesday morning meeting instead of my regular 4 p.m. because I'd taken the day off to care for him. So I don't expect any noticeable weight loss NEXT week, when I'll be back on schedule. But in the meanwhile, the scale showed a 2-pound loss this week, for a total of 11 pounds in four weeks. :o I'm boggled by it all, considering that health issues prevent me from exercising, and that even the WW leader had told me on Day One that lupus patients often have a lot of trouble losing weight.
So now of course I'm building up my nerves to withstand the break-even or slight give-back that will probably occur next Wednesday afternoon. While hoping against hope that it won't really matter, and I'll do okay if I just follow the program carefully -- it's a long-term process, after all. I just hate to pay $12 to hear bad news... ;)
02-18-2011, 05:24 AM
Thank you for the support, because I thought it was just my idea, that it didn't happen to anybody else! And that's true I'll be stuck to this weight until I get my period..That used to meke me frustrated but now I know and just go on my diet...
I wish you the best for your husband and a quick recovery of course.
And congrats on your weight loss despite the lack of exercise:carrot:
I don't do any exercise either, I'm not the type of running and going to the gym. I feel embarassed saying so but I'm getting so bored just thinking about it..but if I finally make my mind and move myself I like it afterwards..
Today I've made a vegetable soup with the hope that tomorrow I'll see some little loss..
Have a nice day everybody!:hat:
02-23-2011, 04:46 AM
Good morning everybody!How is it going?
Weigh-in today and I got to 193.2 from the previous 193.4 which is of course a ridiculous loss, but it's the first day of TOM so I'm expecting much better the next few days. Also, comparing to other TOMs weigh-ins when I was always more than I expected I'm thrilled for having even that tiny loss:carrot:
So, where are you??
02-23-2011, 09:29 AM
I'll chime in.
I WI on Tues but whatever. 159. Same as last week, but I was very dehydrated from the flu last week, so I'm good with it.
02-23-2011, 12:26 PM
Finally met my 5% goal to total 14 pounds!!! Most weight I've ever lost consistently!!!!!
02-23-2011, 04:06 PM
Well done hopeful!
02-23-2011, 11:15 PM
I weigh in on Tues evenings, so I'd like to join you all. Last night was first weigh in.......to be continued.
02-24-2011, 01:08 AM
Down 1.6 tonight woot woot!! Trying to keep my eye on the prize, how far I have come, not how far I still have to go!
02-24-2011, 03:11 PM
Hi all! Weighed in on Wednesday afternoon. I wasn't expecting much because I'd weighed in at 10 a.m. last week and lost 2 pounds then. Figured that I'd be lucky to break even. But I lost another 2.4 pounds this week, and made my 5% goal! It still amazes me that Weight Watchers works, after doing so many diets in the past (and living with lupus, which means steroids and other medication with weight-gain side effects). Till I tried this, I was on a sloooooow losing trend (perhaps 10 pounds per year from a high of 285 down to 244 when I started WW). Now my metabolism seems to be kick-started.
02-28-2011, 04:49 AM
That's awesome AuntLoopy!:bravo:
I find ww the most efficient diet I have ever tried too even though I don't stay in track all days.
This weekend for example I was on a trip so I couldn't and didn't want to count points...so after a looooong premenstrual phase when I'm finally done with it I destroy everything by going to that trip..
For me, there are always reasons to spoil my program, that's why the loss becomes sooooo sloooooww...:o
02-28-2011, 03:56 PM
Thought I would join you lovely chicks!
My wiegh in is on Sunday morning since I do ww at home I was down 4lbs after a two week stall. I was so excited I have never lost that much at one time. So 8 lbs in 5 weeks not to bad!
03-01-2011, 01:02 PM
Hi everybody. I used 3Fat Chicks alot when I was last on this journey, back in 2000. Ten years later, I'm back on Weight Watchers, only this time I hope I will finally learn to keep it off.
I weigh in on Weds. Started last August, have lost 23 pounds so far--it comes off really slow.
I mostly have trouble on weekends. Tracking gets difficult when we eat out. I thought I was doing okay this week, but according to my scale I gained 2 pounds in 1 day! I realize it might have been the salt in the ham causing me to retain water. Thought I would push water today and hope I can flush it out before tommorrow's weigh in.
Wish me luck!
03-01-2011, 10:26 PM
First weigh in on program----down 2.8! :carrot: Great for me with thyroid issues and just coming off prednisone. Liking the free fruits and veggies a lot!
03-01-2011, 11:26 PM
WI tonight for me. Down 1.2! Solidly under 160 for 3 weeks in a row now!:carrot:
03-02-2011, 05:24 AM
Welcome nancy,madamwu,Mrs mum and shcierf!
Well done to those who lost weight!
I'm down 1 pound today as I have the same problem with madamwu I can't keep track when I'm out..and I've been out all weekend!
So I'm happy with that!:carrot:
However, I'll weigh-in on Saturday too because I feel I'm flushing salt out these days so I hope for a better result..:p
03-02-2011, 12:56 PM
Thanks for the welcome.
Weighed this morning at meeting-down 1.6! Morale of the story-don't trust your home scale even if it is a WW scale.
Good luck to the rest of you!
03-02-2011, 12:59 PM
Wow everyone! This is most amazing! You're giving me hope.
For some reason, I'm feeling pudgy today. My belly seems to be sticking out and my clothes are feeling weird. I know that I've followed the program diligently, but I still feel worried every Wednesday. My weight loss has been rather consistent, and I'm waiting for the backlash, if you know what I mean.
The good news is that the DH has agreed that I should get the Weight Watchers monthly pass. I argued successfully that getting it in March (when I have five weigh-ins) would save us $20 right away. So why not do it now? He'd been hoping that I'd decide that the meetings weren't important to my weight loss, but I really look forward to them every week. So he eventually agreed that I should continue attending, and as cheaply as possible.
Anyways, I'll be back after W/I this afternoon, come what may.
03-08-2011, 11:02 PM
Down another pound! 156.8. Woo Hoo!
03-09-2011, 08:30 PM
2nd week on program and up 2.2!
Frustrated because I keep close track of what I'm eating, logging it on my paper tracker and iphone. I average 28.5 points a day and used only 7 weeklies. WW leader recommended cutting back on bananas. I usually have one every day, she said to try cutting back to 1 every other day. I will, but I love my bananas to bulk up my yogurt and ff ice cream.
Wierd thing is that a couple people who don't know I'm back at ww commented that I look as though I've lost weight???
I sure hope next week is better!:?:
03-09-2011, 08:56 PM
MrsMom, don't give up. Could it be getting to TOM? It could just be water. Were you eating sodium laden foods? Hang in there.
03-10-2011, 11:43 AM
I keep telling myself its heading down, that is all that matters. Down only .2 pounds this week, even though my home scale said 2 pounds! Interestingly, this was the first week I really tried not to use up all my weekly allowance points. Maybe I should go back to using them? It makes no sense.
03-10-2011, 03:28 PM
It's my jubilee week: today is my 49th day on the WW program!
W/I yesterday afternoon: down another 2.2 pounds for a grand total of 16.0.
It was a tough week; I got sick after my annual (14-vial!) lupus blood testing panel. Then the water company blew up the sewers at the end of the road, so we were without water and cooking gas for three days. Then I picked my weekly case of bananas (yup, we eat 'em at every meal around here!), but they'd been dropped or frozen enroute, and went bad within 48 hours.
I got so mad at it all, that I insisted on following the WW program no matter what. Carried food and books to the motel for the night when we couldn't get back to the house because the road was destroyed. Didn't add points even when I was feeling exhausted from the blood tests (and the butcher who needed to re-seat the IV after every second or third vial). Went out and bought bananas AT RETAIL (heaven forbid!)
I'm glad that I made the decision. It helped to build a little bit of willpower, I guess.
03-15-2011, 11:52 PM
Down 1.4! Getting very close to being back to goal. 10.4 to go. Gotta wrap my head around maintenance so I don't do this again. Good luck everyone else, and never give up!
03-16-2011, 12:25 PM
Down 2 pounds this week after no loss the last 2weeks.
I'm back in the swing of things!!
03-16-2011, 06:53 PM
Hi all! What a weird week. I was sick for several days. I participated in a regional church conference which kept me on my feet constantly. The weather has been excellent, which means that my dog and I have been walking more. And despite the stress of my stepmom's gentleman friend being given his hospice diagnosis this week, I didn't overeat.
And today I gained 0.4 pounds. This is the first week when I didn't lose anything on WW.
Some of the problem is that TOM came to visit after six months without it. (Menopause...it's just plain weird sometimes.)
The thing is that I knew I'd followed the program absolutely rigorously all week. So I'm frustrated but not angry at myself -- I'm not at fault. If I'd been "indulging", even legally (I plan my meals the day before, and don't add anything extra no matter how tempted I might be), I'd be in a snit. But I'm more or less cool with it all. (As long as it doesn't keep happening, that is!)
03-17-2011, 08:38 AM
This was my second week with WW. Yesterday, I had a -2.6 lb loss for a total of -4 lbs. I feel better physically and this past week I've gone to the gym. Getting the hang of the new Points Plus program.
03-23-2011, 12:42 AM
Down .6 this week. Not a big loss, but I really struggled this week. But, that's ok. Feeling good, under 10 pounds to go!
Congrats on all losing. Loopy, it will happen now and then, I gained about 5 weeks ago. But I'd been sick and lost 5 the week before that, so I new it would not all stick. No worries!
03-29-2011, 10:54 PM
Down 1.6! 8.2 pounds to go! Hope everyone else had a good week!
03-30-2011, 01:44 PM
Last week I was in Las Vegas, finishing up a business trip. So I went and weighed in on Friday, assuming the worse. I was down .8 lb!
So I get back on program, weigh in today on my regular meeting day, and I'm up .4 lbs. There is no sense.
In Vegas I did do a lot of walking (was at a trade show buying fabric for my retail store). But eating was a challenge, especially because of the time zone difference and the high cost of food.
My body clock was three hours later than Vegas time, and to add to the problem, we had just changed to Daylight savings time back east (Syracuse, NY). I always have a hard time adjusting to the time change in the Spring, and the 3 time zones made it worse. One of my colleagues who was flying in from California actually suggested an 8:30 pm dinner meeting--yeah right. Like I really want to eat dinner at 11:30 pm my circadian clock time! Also, my partner is a diabetic and it was even more important to control her eating schedule.
Food cost was also a problem. We are not gamblers, and so do not get the infamous "comps" that you can use for food. It was impossible to get a meal for two under $50, and that included breakfast! The portions were huge. One morning I thought I would try to be "good" and got a bran muffin ($4.95) and coffee ($2.50). A bowl of fruit was $6.95. A grapefruit $4.99! So they brought out this bran muffin on a plate, heated, with pecans in sugar syrup on the top! I had some of my partner's ham (they gave her a full ham slice) and ate the muffin. It was delicious, but I'm sure the points were outrageous.
I did see some sign of improved behavior. When my Chinese salt and pepper shrimp turned out to be battered deep-fryed shrimp, I actually took off some of the breading and ate them without--they were pretty disgusting and the chinese cook who made them should be ashamed of himself.
Oh well, life goes on. There is always tommorrow!:p
04-06-2011, 12:03 PM
Anybody else still here? I'm down .2, which isn't much,but at least its going in the right direction. I bought a WW pedometer, see if I can up my activity.
04-06-2011, 08:49 PM
I weighed in today and was up .6. I was discouraged but figure that in the long run,it will all work out. I'll redouble my efforts and try to eat more veggies.
04-07-2011, 01:08 PM
I'm with you on the veggies. When I first started I was eating carrot & celery sticks. If I get one salad a week I'm doing good. (I do eat cooked veggies) I'm hoping the warmer weather will make cold veggies more appealing.
04-12-2011, 11:54 PM
Down 1.4. 151.8. 145 is goal. :carrot:
Even my strange, mule headed hubby, who says he's proud of me, but never says much else, told me tonight, I need some new jeans, cuz my others are getting really baggy, and even a new dress! OMG! I darn near fainted!:dizzy: Ironically, I saw a couple of really cute dresses in a catalog today. So I'm thinking, pay up Bubba! I so want the cute, sleeveless, leapard print, knee length dress, I saw in a catalog, along with this dress, http:///www.pyramidcollection.com/itemdy00.asp?ID=51,610&GEN1=Dresses&T1=P87633+XS&dispRow=268 Hope the link works. If not, it's from the Pyramid Collection catalog.
04-19-2011, 11:35 PM
Down another 1.4, seems to be my number!
Happy Easter everyone!
04-27-2011, 12:01 AM
Down .8! Broke 150. 149.6!
06-08-2011, 08:05 PM
HI, I just started today so I will be weighing in on Wednesdays. Wish me luck and I wil report next week. Best to all!:carrot:
Hi stargazer! Glad to see you -- let's rev up this thread again.
I went back to meetings Wednesday -- 274.5. Long way to go!
08-17-2011, 02:20 PM
Is anyone else still weighing in on Wednesdays? I had my first weigh-in today (in my bathroom since i'm doing WW online), but I don't want to resurrect the thread if no one else is going to join in LOL
09-04-2011, 09:32 PM
I'm a Wed. at-work weight watcher. I'd love to revive this thread even if it is just for a couple of us.
Current weight 186, last week weigh in. Up 1 pound. Ugh. I hope to drop it, plus more, this coming Wednesday 9/7.
My at work scale ranges .2 below my at home scale to right on with my home scale. I guess it depends on how much I eat for breakfast and water I drink before the noon weigh in.
I've gone to in-town meetings as well, and weighed in there 2x. The results there are 2 full pounds less than my at home scale. It is dangerous to go there and weigh in because I get excited only to go to the next at-work weigh in and show a gain!
This week's gain was TOM. There is nothing I would do differently.
I am adding some activity to my week, but nothing earth shaking so I won't use activity points.
So Wednesday weigh in folks, if you want to join me in this thread, please do.
02-17-2012, 12:05 PM
I was down 2.4 this week.
03-26-2012, 04:00 PM
I'm a Wed weigh in girl. I'm so glad I found you guys. I will be posting on Wed morning. Looking forward to hearing all the loses!!!!!
03-28-2012, 02:15 PM
Ok well I weighed this morning and have lost 4 lbs this week. That makes a total of 17 lbs gone in just 3 weeks!!!! I am so excited!!!!!! I am beginning to feel the difference in my jeans!!!!!! I hope everyone else did well this week.
05-02-2012, 02:02 PM
Hey Y'all! I'm new here. I started weight watchers a while back and fell off the wagon but I'm back on it now and weighing in on Wednesday. I don weight watchers online so this time I thought I'd find a forum to help me be accountable so I'm glad I found ya'll. Today is the first day of the rest of my life. :carrot: My starting weight is 275.8.
05-02-2012, 02:43 PM
SO aggravated. Haven't lost any weight in 2 weeks and I've been tracking and this week was TOM and I usually drop 4 pounds, but this week I gained. UGH. So frustrated.
