Mind if I join the group. I have been with weight watchers on and off many times. I am starting today and will attend my meeting on Friday. Well I got my workout in ( though it was short) and am about to eat my breakfast. I am feeling very positive this time around.

Welcome Bev and boatingmommy, glad to have you!
Congrats on your loss and maintanence, boatingmommy!
You're off to a great start, Bev!

Yeah, I'm a cat person.
The cat (Tigger) under my name came from a publix parking lot.
Tiny little thing she was. Neighbors across the street showed the little kitten to my siblings and I, and there was no easy way for my folks to say 'no' to the four expectant faces.

Talking

Thanks for the welcome, Zan.! Yep, it's hard to turn down little expectant faces...that's how we talked my hubby into the second cat. Lots of pouty lips and sad eyes! Worked like a charm!

Doing well with eating today...cereal, banana and milk for breakfast, and homemade beef barley veggie soup and a pear for lunch, with a yoplait light yogurt for snack. Only 7 points left for the day, though! Drat!!! Well, I'll just have to plan ahead. Going to do my Turbo Sculpt workout after lunch.

I've got a swimsuit in the closet that I'd like to fit into for summer. Might need to hang in on a hook from the fridge! How's that for motivation? Maybe hanging it around my neck might be even more effective? Whatever works, right?

Grab some zero point veggies for a snack between now and dinner if you need something to eat. Filling foods are awesome for that.
A cup each of raw carrots, tomatoes, lettuce, mushrooms, and 10 sprays from the wish bone spritzer is a good way for me to get my veggies in. I tend to have that for lunch but it makes a good points saver snack when very hungry.

Congrats on the loss, Haley!
Did you use your flex points that week? Maybe your "little over" worked well within the weekly points. Just a thought,

Way to go, Hayley! I have been suprised a couple times in the past when I went over and then saw a loss. Some "magical" metabolism thing, I guess. Somehow it works, and I'm not going to knock it.

Zan - I'm eating lots of fresh veggies and fruit for snack...I'm going to turn into a fruit salad pretty soon!

Doing good with points for today. Fighting the sugar munchies, though. Going to have a bag of smart pop for snack...only 1 point. That should tide me over till dinner. Worked out at lunch...40 minutes of light weight training and some hoola hooping on the Wii (trying to work on waist line!). The Wii is more fun than workout...but it seems to make the muscles ache, so it's gotta be working, right? Hope you all are having a great Hump Day!

My Wednesday went well, though I did have to drive around all over the place. But that was pleasant compared to my usual sitting behind the computer screen in the near-silent office.

Zan - Tomorrow will be my day to drive all over the place. I am a social worker for Birth to Three services for the State of Illinois. One day I am working at home on paperwork all day, the next I am driving from house to house on home visits. We live in a rural area...so not much traffic to worry about.

Bad thing about the driving around thing is packing lunch, and trying to figure out where I'll be when it's time to eat. Guess I'll pack a sandwhich and some fruit.

Hope you all had a good day!

A good lunch box makes a heck of a difference.

This coming from the lady who tosses baggies of fruits and veggies in a grocery bag with yogart and pudding cups, and a few snack items.

Then again, it's only outside of a fridge for about 15 to 20 minutes.

Yeah, I have been using my daughters retired "Princess Kitty" lunch box...It's just not "cool" enough for her to use anymore (being almost 12 years old), but it does have a freezer pack for in the warmer weather, and lots of room. Guess I'm not "cool" either! Do they still use the word "cool"? I'm so out of touch!

Even though my weigh in date is officially on Monday's, I jumped on the scale this morning...I am so glad I did....156.5!!! Yeah! All those aerobic tapes and healthy food are paying off. Now...gotta stay away from the beer this weekend. I have a few Bud Select 55 in the fridge...but that's it. No celebrating weight loss with a couple of cold brewskis...very counter productive!

Hope you all enjoy your Friday and weekend!

boatingmommy, I laugh at your brewskis!
Congrats on the 156.5!!!

Things are lining up for me and mine down here, I might just go wild and take a car trip to an old friend's house and waste the day away sitting, chatting, and playing a game or two! (But of course, I'll be on plan while they order their pizzas or fast food, smirking all the while at my happily-imagined healthy-superiority, ;p)

*snicker*

MUuuahh, ha....ha! (Evil laugh...tough to spell!) Yes, your diabolical weight loss plan will work...maybe every one will fall under your weight loss spell...because you are the master!!! They won't even be aware of your powers over food!

Okay, that was a little weird... in a goofy mood cause it's Friday. What can I say?

Moohawhawhawhawhaw! is right!

Though I don't think a couple of them should lose any, they'd turn sideways and disappear. But a couple of us are rather solid,

I could see it now, *cracks whip*. *giggle*

I think the silliness is contagious!
