Default Welcome All Newbies On Ww

Hello everyone this is for all the new comers and anyone else that wants to join. I am new to 3FC, and havent had any luck finding a forum, so I thought why not start one of my own. Maybe there are other newbies out there having the same problem. I have been a WW member for 2 years. When I started WW I weighed in at 275LBS, and I now weigh 216LBS. I weigh in on Wednesdays, so we will do the same on this. Every Wednesday we will tell about our success or tell about our not success. I didnt have a good week at all this week, been stressed out and gained 3 lbs. Yuck! but I know I can get back on track. I would like all of us to give some encouragement to each other, because I know that is what im lacking right now. so whos up to join me?

Hi,
today is my first day on WW. I've been on Atkins the past five days..it gave me a nice little jump start but I am feeling undesired effects. Anyhow, do you mind posting your points and your meals? Just wondering why you feel you weren't successful with the diet.


It's getting late in the day and I haven't used half my points. I've been running around helping my niece get ready for Homecoming, so it was a bad for eating "good food." I had a cheeseburger, diet coke, 0 points progressive soup and 2 WW fudgesickles.

I'm still hungry so apparently I'm not eating enough of the right things. Hopefully things will get better.

Welcome Mzradie!!
Dont get me wrong! I was very successful the first year and a half and still am. I have just been stressed and got a taste of the bad stuff, and was hoping to find some buddies in here that we could do WW together and weigh in every week. Did you attend your first WW meeting? My son had homecoming last nite too! But I had a big salad with ff catalina dressing on it, and a apple last nite. total points was 12, because I had egg on it and some cheese. How did you like the Atkins diet?

G,day ladies, hope you don,t mind if I jump in, like you Gold fish I,ve been looking for a forum to, I,m Julie from downunder 49 mum to 5 and nan to 10 grandkids. I have just started the WW points plan I was on it 12mths ago and went from 88kgs about 180lbs down to 75kgs about 150lbs give or take not sure, I started putting it back on about 4mths ago and I,m now 90kgs about 188lbs, I have been trying to lose it but I have just been told I have bursitis in my hip and leg and arms and have been told not to move to much. But I,m sure we can all help each other with support and friendship. Take care... JULS

welcome Juls!!! Im so glad that you decided to pick my forum! and I know we can do well with the support from each other. Im sorry to hear about your health issues, I too have been having pain in my neck and shoulder I go to a specialist tommorow to find out what is going on. I think when we have pain we just look for comfort in food, at least I think that is what my problem is. (plus a teenage boy that is stressing me out) I have been doing the points also. Do you attend WW meetings or are you doing it on your own? I do belong to one but with the pain I have been having I havent been going. But I am going to go this Wednesday. I dont think I did well though, but I am still going to try my hardest. I am so excited that we are going through this journey together and will become friends on the way! have a good day both of you and always to think thin!!!!! We have the holidays coming and we want to look good!!! *hugs*
My name is Faith

G,day Faith it is nice to meet you my name is Julianne but everyone calls me Julie or Juls sorry to hear about your neck and shoulders I agree about the comfort food and you have my sympathy with the teenage boy all my 5 which are 4 girls and 1 son are grown and in thier 20,s and the eldest has just turned 30 she makes me feel old at times and I,m only 49 soon to be 50 thank God I,m a red head or I would be grey by now LOL. I don,t go to WW meetings I,m doing it myself I get their mag every month and I also get Australian slimming and health mag to, some of the success stories in them are awesome. Good luck with the specialist and I will try to always think thin it,s just when I walk past a mirror my thoughts get distracted G,day mzradie hope your still there and are doing well. Bye for now talk to you later ....JULS

Hello again Juls, hope your having a good day. I will help you anyway I can with the WW. If you have any questions dont be afraid to ask, If I dont know the answer I will find the answer from my leader at WW. Are you girls ready to weigh in tommorow? Well Im off to the Doctors! talk to you both tommorow! Juls when you look in that mirror and see that person in there that you dont like, just remember this, only you can change that look and say I can have a slimmer body! Keep postive attitude about it! I should talk! Believe me I do the same thing, but thats what we are going to do. Right???
Your new Friend,
Faith

Hey Faith well we are off to a good start, your desserts sound yum but I don,t think we have libbies pumpkin filling here downunder I,ll check it out we may have something like it. I don,t know about mzradie maybe she is like us and checking around til she finds a site she feels comfy in . As I said yesterday was a good day I ended the day with a WW ready meal beef cannellonni " Yum " and a yoghurt, I had a green tea before I went to bed. Today I had a good brekki a muesli bar and yoghurt and a green tea I have to go out and about today so I may have Subway for lunch a nice turkey and salad on wheat bread, for dinner I might do a Honey, soy, and garlic chicken stir fry with lots of veggies, I,ll be doing a fare bit of walking so that will be my exercise for the day the Doc says with the pain I,m in and not being able to really do anything to hard I should count incidental exercise just because I don,t feel half dead after it doesn,t mean it isn,t helping. Well I,m off take care talk to you soon and a big on the 4lb loss that is awesome.

Hi Juls,
you dont have to use Libbies, you can use any brand. Yes we are off to a good start! Hurray for the both of us!!!!!! I just had a banana for breakfast, and of course my coffee, got to have that! I see you are a big green tea drinker. I havent ever tried that. I might have to get me some. Im not sure yet what Im having for lunch or dinner. Not really hungry today, weather is damp and chilly, and looks like it could rain, so I dont think I will be going outside today. Plus Im waiting to hear back from the Doctor today, so have to stay close to the phone! Have a good day! talk to you tommorow!
Your friend,
Faith

G,day Faith, OK I,ll try to find a substitute for libbies I want to make them they sound sooooo good. You may not feel hungry but at least try to have something even if it is only some fruit, you can keep the cold but I would like some rain please yesterday we got all this thunder and I thought Yay and it did rain for all of 2 minutes then the sun came out again and it has been hot ever since . I went and got my test results and I have bursitis, Arthritis and tennis elbow I have been put on injections for the bursitis in the hope it will calm it down but if they don,t do anything I,m looking at an OP to remove the bursa sack that sounds like sooo much fun I can hardly wait anyway what is your health issue you said you were waiting to hear from the Doc whats up. Take care have an excellent day talk to you tomorrow at the moment there is only the two of us but I,m sure we will find plenty to say.. JULS

Hi Juls,
What are your systems for this bursitis? They think its Arthritis, go for MRI on Wednesday, I guess that will tell. they got me on steriods right now, but so far its not touching it, pain is still there. Old age sucks!!!! LOL I did get some food in me, I guess I was more hungry than I thought. LOL had some steamed brocolli, Sf jello, and a baked potato. Did you get anymore rain? It is so cold again here today, 60's but the wind has picked up with it and feels like its in the 40's. brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!! what is the temp there? How is the grandchildren? got to go to the bank. Have a good day Juls... talk to you soon. *hugs*
your friend,
Faith
