WW Clubs and Groups - LDC Week 2 - How are we doing??
07-24-2001, 10:22 AM
How is everyone doing with the challenge?? We are in week 2 now!!! I have WI this saturday (going every 2 weeks now) and I hope for a loss. Historically, this is the week I ALWAYS have a gain, but hopefully with being sick last week I will show a loss! Fingers crossed, knock on wood!
I think I am back on track this week... after all the trauma last week. I am walking in the morning again too! My problem... I haven't found the best way to journal that actually KEEPS me journaling. I will do it for a week, then slack off for a couple, then do something else. Any suggestions??

Besides the odd 8 pt ice cream and not moving from my bed all week, I did pretty good this week. I journalled, and I tried to exercise, but I did walk to work everyday.
I don't know if Ill gainor lose tonite, but I'll certainly hope for some loss!! I have been drinking my water too.....
SO - I'll check in here tomorrow with my results from week one.
AND taking Jen's idea to focus on the challenge rather than obsessing, I will focus more on this (which means I'll post my journal daily) to keep me honest and motivated in a GOOD way, rather than a BAD way.....
Jen- I am good journalling during the week at work - but evenings and especially weekends are SO BAD!!! I am trying to write my plan out in pencil before I leave work and then I write it in pen when I ate what I (hopefully) planned.....that seems to work for me....

I'm starting new tonight. We'll see! Like everyone else, keep fingers and toes crossed...until you get a toe cramp. Those aren't fun!

Belle... journalling on-line is also a good way to keep you honest. If you tell us "this is what I am doing"... you may feel guilty not doing it! YAH FOR YOU!!!
As for me! I really REALLY want to meet my goal. I never make the goals I set... Plus, I go on vacation the first week of Nov and I REALLY want to be lower than 190. The last time I weighed that I was in HS... and I am 29 now. So that was a really long time ago. This is HUGE milestone for me!

turkey sub with cheese 6.5

I'll update it tomorrow if wrong. Plus I WI tonite so I'll bring that in...

I pretty much ignored points all weekend and haven't paid as much attention as I should since. I have gotten a little exercise in, though. I feel huge because I'm about to get my period, so I'm not to hopeful about WI.
Today I had:
Cereal, 2 pts.
Chips and salsa con queso, 8
Salad with cheese, hardboiled egg and dressing, 9
Total so far: 24
That leaves 3 pts left for the day. Argghh! I think I'll go on a bike ride tonight, or walk the dogs. It's so humid outside STILL it's kind of miserable, though.

Jen: I'm the same way about journalling. I'll do it for a while, then lose interest. I even lost interest in the eTools journal, which I had been trying out. Guess I'll cancel my membership! The first time I joined WW, they weren't on the points system but measured everything by the number of breads, milk, fruits, fat and meat you had. There was a magnetic board you could buy for your fridge and you could check off as you used the foods. It really helped me (especially since it took up the whole top part of the fridge and pretty much screamed out to you not to eat!). Wish there was something WW had now like it. I supposed I could make something, but that's too much effort.

Jen, Thanks for posting all the totals.
I lost another 2 lbs this week. I'm finally starting to smile at myself in the mirror instead of just sucking in my gut. Going to the beach next weekend (for the first time this year) with my husband's family. Wondering if I should look for a new bathing suit. :)
How's everyone else doing?
Kierie, how are you feeling? (My niece is named Kieran as well -- it's so nice to see another person with such a pretty name.)
All this talk about running has inspired me. I've started jogging the majority of my morning mile.
Hope everyone's having a great day!

Hi Ladies!!! I haven't been around for a while because my new assignment at work doesn't leave me any time for extra fun on the computer and my computer at home is really slow - I've got to start dealing with that. Housitting this week with a fast computer - Yay!! I've just taken a look at some old posts - it seems everyone is doing well - Double Yay! I have been doing great. Headed for my 25 pound award (5# to go) My younger sister has been incredibly supportive and she's lost 8# too! It helps so much to have people around. One of my original goals was to be at least a size 16 by my sister's wedding. Since that goal, my other sister has also gotten engaged. So I changed the goal from August (younger sister's) to October (older sister's wedding) and just this weekend I tried on a size 14 skirt and...IT FIT!!!! It's actually working. Anyway - I can't think of a good labour day goal. I'm pretty focused on the 10% which I should be at in two weeks if things continue. I'll be around to let you know. Hope every one has a fantastic day or evening or whenever you read this post.
I just checked my dear friend mr scale annnnnndd
swelling not withstanding i'm down 2 pounds wahoooooo 198

Well... did good all day... then after work we went grocery shopping and picked up take out chicken. It was awesome and I ate it!
So starting over today. 1 day off program will not kill me... but I do WI tomorrow AM! I haven't been to a meeting in ages. I have weighed in, but haven't been able to stay. Shame on me.
Fill you in later on the WI... oh this week is my gain week because of ovulation... I retain TONS of water. That makes me nervous! I hate gaining!
07-27-2001, 10:30 AM
OK_I haven't been posting my food but I am still in for the challenge...I WI next Thursday AM...I did WI at home today and even with TONS of salt yesterday(3pts of LAy's FFree chips) and TOM I am only up .2 so hopefully this time next week I will be heading down. I have been doing great all week on points, not so great on exersize..we'll try to fix that this weekend.

Hope everyone else had a great week!

Sorry I haven't been posting my journals, I've been keeping up with the goings on in the challenge. . noticed up there I didn't have a labour day goal posted, my goal was actually to almost hit my goal weight, so I'll say 12 pounds, that might be semi realistic.
For this weeks weigh in I had another 2.5lbs loss ( I think, I'll check back at what I posted for my starting weight.) Pretty sure this is write though. . gotta pay more attention. . I've gained and lost the same 5 pounds this month, hopefully I can jump past them next week.
