Monday and Tuesday were good days for me. I have to figure out how to put the good days together to continue my weight loss. Anyone have any good tips, tricks, or strategies?

Judy - I am like you, have a few good days then get sidetracked too
easily. I think the only thing we can do is preplan our menus including snacks,
have OP food prepared & ready to make good meals in minutes and journal
faithfully. Look for ways to make our favourite recipes more healthy.
Take fruit/veggie snack plus your water wherever you go.
So - how is everyone else doing this week? I have ww tonight and tops tomorrow, so will count my tops as offical weight. I have been doing OK,
still not handling weekends as good as I should be.
This Friday going into Tor to get my hair done & stay overnight at my dd.
So looking forward to that. She has an upcoming fitness show, so should be easy for me to stay on track while there. She is limited to super healthy food right now. So no excuses.
Terri and Loose and Bandit, glad to see you here.
I am trying something new. I'm giving myself 1200 calories plus two fruits a day. As I eat 100 cals, I move a penny from one side of a paper to the other. So far it's working. I've got some calories stored away for tonight.
I am determined to get this weight off.
How is everyone else doing? and will get us there.

Good morning Turtles!
Cherry, you are doing the most important thing: taking care of yourself and your family. : you are so close to that wonderful breakthrough point of 199#. You are doing great and we're always happy to see you post here when you can.
Yep, Loose, over the hump day is a very good day in the week. It's also the day when I WI at WW's. Good seeing you post and cheers for progress this week. You are so close to your goal.
Terri, hi! How is your coming along?
Bandit, have fun with dd and haircut, etc. Sounds like a good plan. Here's to a for a great weekend. I know you can do it.
I'm so close to my goal for this Tuesday. Maybe it's too ambitious to hope to go from 181 (which is where I am now) to 179 which is where I've wanted to be for months now........but I'm doing a lot of the right things and it is possible. Anything's possible, right? And in the meantime I need to go in the right direction day by day.
Okay Everybody!!!!! Have a great day. I know so many of you are super busy. Just know we're all thinking of you and wishing you well with your daily goals and weight loss!

Hi turtles - cannot believe how great our weather has been & today is super sunny so loving that.
Cherry - congrats on your weight loss. Glad to see you are keeping at it.
Doing OK with things, but have been overdoing the weekends & according to
ww last night I stayed the same. Have Tops tonight so should be same thing.
I am liking the ww programme & no fault to the programme for me overdoing weekend and being way over my extra points.
My goal this week is to be down 2# and I would be super happy with that.
Busy weekend - in Tor on Friday & dancing Sat night with the gals.
Catching up Sun a.m. on Corrie and doing house chores/shopping Sun afternoon. Thats about it
Bandit, I'm just back from my doctor and where I have always been 5'4" I have just shrunk to 5'3". Ugh-----but I'm not taking the goal weight for 5'3".
LOL. Now you and I are almost twins------except I'm much older than you.
I'm glad you like the new WW program. To me it's so important to keep looking and trying until something clicks. Good luck this weekend. I bet you'll keep the points plus in mind and end up with your 2# loss!@ Yay
Hi guys! I've been remiss in posting in here lately. Life is busy, busy these days.
Hope you are all doing well. Itry -- I'm gonna shrink in height? I can't reach stuff as it is. I'll have to get one of those long-poled grabby things they sell! lol
Things are going pretty well weight loss-wise, keeping my nose to the grindstone and just working it as much as possible. I find that setting several mini-goals works in motivating me to stay on track. I joined The Biggest Loser challenge here and like that it holds me accountable each week and that in being part of a team what I do (or don't do) affects someone else besides me. Sometimes it's easier to stay on track for someone else than for yourself. Does that make any sense?
Have a great weekend all, keep up the good work. Spring is a short big away . . something lovely to look forward to!

I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.
Hi turtles - just getting ready to head out to Toronto. As I thought,
I turtled last night which is better than gaining, but seriously want to
see a loss at the scale. So really have to watch it over the weekend, which is always my biggest challenge.
Have a great weekend & I will pop in if I get a chance.
Good morning everyone and happy Saturday to you all... just a quick hello to everyone and then I have to run... had my car in for a bunch of expensive work this week and on my way to pick up a sandwich at Subway last night it started making really loud noises so I have take it back up there this morning to have it looked at which does not factor into my very busy weekend as it is but need the vehicle so off to the shop I go.
I am so far behind on how everyone is doing and need to catch up - maybe later on today I can find a few minute to go thru posts. On my quick view I saw that:
Cherry is losing and that is a wonderful thing!
Bandit is back at WW again... are you liking that? I have been thinking about it but don't know when I would find the time to be honest.
LooseSeal: Shrinking happens in our family too! I take a ton of calcuim to try and stay one step a head =)
Terri - hope things are going well!
Got to run! My trip to the gym is postponed for a trip to the repair shop ugh!
One day at a time... one pound at a time...
