Hi Brandy,

I'm still here Looks like it's just the two of us these days ... can't imagine where the others are, it's been such a long time since anyone else posted ... funny how they all disappeared together ... is it something we said I'm sure they'll drift back sooner or later.

How are you doing? I was going to be good this week, but still haven't managed to get any scales, and I haven't been keeping track properley Went out for a meal last night for Nick's birthday with a group of friends, and had way too much to eat (and drink ) so not doing too well so far!! Also, TOM has arrived and I've had a chocolate craving ... the first for a long time, so I guess it's going to be another bad week!

Hope you have a good weekend.

Nichola

We must offend! If we apologize and beg, maybe they will all come back?

Sorry about the TOM thing. That can really put a bump in your diet plans! Do as well as you can - even a few bad days don't have to mean a bad week. Just maybe a so-so week!

Things are going ok for me. I'm journaling and staying within my points + flex (I use the flex, I lose. I don't lose the flex, I don't lose - so I use the flex!) so I'm hoping hoping HOPING to be at my blasted 10% soon!

Brandy, 4 pounds ... what a brilliant loss!! Well done to you!! Keep it up

I'm off work today with earache ... and I've gone deaf in my right ear which is driving me insane!!!! I feel like pulling my ear off!! It's like being underwater all the time, and I'm feeling all unbalanced! Off to the docs later to try and get it sorted. Supposed to go to my WI tonight, but docs appointment isn't until 4pm and WI is at 6pm, so depends on what time I get home ... don't really feel up to going tonight anyway, so perhaps I won't.

Good luck for the rest of the week.

Hi Brandy,

Didn't get to my WI on Tuesday ... too late by the time I got home from the docs ... and didn't feel like rushing to get there Doc gave me some ear drops ... worked quite well on Wednesday ... was able to manipulate my ear so that I could hear better. However, by Wednesday night I was totally deaf in both ears!! Got up this morning to go to work, but ended up crying in frustration as I can't hear a darn thing!! Back to the docs today to get them syringed ... he wouldn't do it on Tuesday as I'd got earache. This is one of the most awful sensations that I've ever had in my life. It will be such a relief to get them done!

Hello Ladies!

Sorry I've dropped off the face of the planet...I went to a Weight Loss Conference on the weekend and had a fantastic time. It was through DWLZ.com and I had nothing but fun. To make matters even better, I'm re-motivated and ready to lose. Today is day 2 OP and I'm heading for day 3. One day at a time right? It sounds like you gals are on the right track! Nichola...only 3 more pounds to get into the 160s! Go girl! Brandy...3 for you to get to 230 too! Go us! I'm going to be weighing in as soon as I find a meeting that will work for me. I'll keep you posted!

Lots of hugs,
Lorraine

Lorraine,

Great to have you back on board again ... we've missed you! ... In fact, Brandy & I seem to be missing everyone! ... Can't imagine what we've done wrong ... they just seemed to disappear

Default Hi Guys!

I'm back! I thought you all were gone because I wasn't getting notification of posts.

I'm back on the wagon and have changed my signature to reflect me start weight and loss. Still doing weight watchers and going to OA.

How's everyone else doing?

Yay! PEOPLE! While I was certainly enjoying Nichola's company I did have to wonder what we'd done to run you all off oh well, long as you're all trickling back!

Nichola - I had the same ear business a few years ago for my class reunion so I spent the whole time not hearing a thing. I'm sure my former classmates wonder when I got so quiet. Hope you're better soon! It's SOOOO frustrating! Always makes me want to scream!!!

Lorraine, the confrence sounds like so much fun I've used dwlz so much since starting WW...that place seems loaded with success stories! Glad you're feeling re-motivated and ready to go YAY!

Raff, still WWing myself. Had a great week last week, this week the scale seems to be at a stand still. Oh well, can't have a big woosh every week! Welcome back

Hey Raff ... Welcome back!! Glad to hear you're on track I've let things slip a little over the past week or two after having a good start at WW, but I will persevere and get back on track asap!

Brandy, the ears are sorted ... got them syringed yesterday ... now everything is SOOOOOOO LOUD!! ... It's such a relief!!

Hope you all have a great weekend

Nichola

Yay! You can hear again!

As for me, I have made no progress on the weight front this week - I am the same this week as last, which is better than gaining, I guess.

I think I need to take pics of thin people in swimsuits and paste them to the fridge and computer so I can remember that I have to get into one of those in a few months. Nothing like fear and humiliation to motivate a girl!

Help Girls ... I desperately need some motivation! Don't know what's been the matter with me, but I've had a terrible couple of weeks. The week before last I gained a pound (excuse was the broken scales and not writing anything down!), and last week I didn't go to my WI because I wasn't well ... which of course gave me the excuse to overeat ... which I've done big time for the past week I'm so angry with myself ... why do I do this?

I had a really good start at WW for the first 3 or 4 weeks, and felt very confident that I'd finally got myself under control ... I felt really good about myself ... now I'm feeling like crap!! I know I've gained several pounds since my last WI ... I can tell by my clothes. I hate the thought of having to go there tomorrow, but I know I have to otherwise I'd probably never go again.

How do some people keep themselves motivated for months on end? I seem to do well for a few weeks, then get really fed-up with having to weigh and calculate everything that goes into my mouth, it becomes such a chore! It's not that I don't want to do this ... I want to lose weight more than anything in the world ... so why the **** can't I stick to the plan?!!!

Ok, I know that no one else can give me all the answers ... it's up to me to do it for myself ... I just wish that I could find the motivation and willpower to do it!!

Thanks for listening. WI is tomorrow night, and the beginning of a whole new week.

Nichola

Nichola...you must go to your meeting! Staying on track even when you don't want to is the key to losing I think. Can you mix up your routine a bit, or maybe pre-weigh a bunch of things so that you aren't always measuring etc? I think you have done SPLENDIDLY so far. Remember that this is a journey...there will be gains and losses along the way, and there will also be LIFE. Being able to find a balance of all those things will help you CONTINUE to succeed.

Hugs,
Lorraine
