Had WI on Wednesday and was up 1 lb. I totally expected it and deserved it, but there was the thought in the back of my mind that maybe i'd lose. It's so frustrating to think that I paid money to gain weight. If that's not a motivator, I don't know what is! I've been doing well so far this week- big weekend up ahead though. A concert in Indy with all my friends (who love to have a few beers) and then a wedding on Saturday. Hopefully I can dance away a few of those points! I start classes on Monday and I'm really excited! I've been so bored during the day and I can't wait to get onto campus again. Have a great one everybody!
I just started WW on Wednesday - I've been steadily gaining for about two years, and decided I needed some structure to expose my undermining eating habits. I think it's going to be a challenge - I love to snack, and hang out at happy hour - but hopefully, I can stick with it! Anyway, I hope everyone has a great weekend in store!

Just wanted to intro myself here so I can start posting :-) Couple of years ago I was "on" WW. At the time though I lost down to 156 but managed to regain it all after our move back to Kansas. I did not realize (duh) that I'd probably have to do this for the rest of my life or risk regaining.
I have a 13 month old & am still nursing him. I lost my first 20 pounds by low carbing & was happy with it but knew I'd be switching back to WW for the long term. I decided that this week is the week to start. I have been at this this time since March when my grandbaby was born. I'm only 37 so typing that looks REALLY weird lol
Anyhow I live in Kansas, am an LPN at a dementia unit (which I totally love) working one shift a week, am finding it VERY hard to get any sort of exercise beyond working & doing chores, am also finding it very hard to get past the actual tummy hunger while getting used to eating smaller portions. But, I plan to stick with it.
Sorry I didn't post all week. Work was insane and we organized a social event (actually I didn't organize it, but wish I had... I am just the treasurer of my work's social committee), the event went well, but the behind the scenes were a total mess argh!
I am down 9lbs! now, I am working the program well and I am exercising tons with the half marathon training... My legs have never looked so defined.
We've almost picked a Wedding date, we shall see... my Engagement ring is getting looser too so I might have to resize it. I am just so wiped, I hope to have an early to bed tonight.
Good news, although I see the specialist on Tuesday, my doctor had the results of my last cell scraping and it looks like everything is good so yah! no surgery for me
I hope everyone is well!

Tonya! Welcome back! It's like old times again, eh? Too bad we are the ones getting older.
I've had several revelations this week while being in class with 17 and 18 year olds...please note there are also one or two people older than me in the classes...getting old sucks, but I don't think I'd go back to being 18 for the world! It's amazing how we are so much more wise and mature than we were back then. I think we had a harder time growing up than our parents and our kids will have a harder time growing up than we did.
Sorry for the rambling there.
Anyways...I basically used all my flex points before the weekend. That was not smart! We are going out to dinner after church tomorrow so I have to attempt (at least look good trying) to keep my points in check.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
Lori: Are you still in medicine? My bro-in-law starts his 4th year on Monday. People in the medical field don't get enough credit.
Ok, before I end up stepping on someone's toes, I'll sign off for tonight. I really need to study.

Stacy: I plan on doing another degree soon.. my first BA, I didn't work hard and just relied on my natural ability, but now I want to do one with the maturity I have now. It's funny, I did a college diploma after my BA and I completely kicked @ss, so I know I have the ability, now I am older and more mature I have much more drive..
What are you taking?

Hello, I am new here but would like to join this thread. It seems very supportive, and I need all of the support I can get. I am 31 years old, married and a mother of two (2 & 10). I have joined WW for the 3rd time, but this is my time! I am at my highest weight ever. I have 80 pounds to lose. My meetings are on Wed. last Wed I lost 3.8. This week will not be as good. To many social events, with the holiday weekend. But I will take whatever the scales say and move on from there. Thank you for any support you can give. I love to cook, probably my downfall with my weight so I love new recipes.
Thank you for listening,
