Hi All! I coming down with a cold, or the flu, and I'm feeling like doody.
I've been pumping myself with Vitamin C and it's not helping because I've been eating nothing but crap, but I've committed myself to starting fresh tomorrow. Wish me luck. Of course, it would be so much easier if I had a personal cook and trainer like Oprah does.

Take care and talk to you soon!

Brandy, I have no excuses either ... back up to 179lbs ... again!!! Today is the start of a brand new week and I'm going to TRY to STAY on plan!! Back to counting calories ... for goodness sakes, it's not THAT difficult to keep within my daily allowance ... so why don't I do it?!!

Raff, sorry you're not feeling so good, hope you're better soon

Jo, hope you're feeling much better now too

Raff, feel better.

Nichola, I'm starting over too. M seems desperate to lose some weight and we finally had time to make a shopping trip and get organized. I'm packing his lunch and pre-counting the points and trying to plan ahead for my own day. When he gets motivated to lose weight, he does not hold back. Very much all in, no fiddling with the "rules" and the weight comes OFF. This is actually depressing in a sense (because compared to him, I lose at a snails pace) but it absolutly keeps me honest and on track. I'm hoping we can both get a few lbs off before Christmas.

Nichola, us too! We had a good start, planned ahead and did fine. I even exercised. Now, if I can just do that every day for the rest of my life, I should be ok

Hello Ladies,
I have been gone for a year and it is so very good to see almost everyone on here. I think other than Ali, the only one missing is Danielle. I was emailing her for awhile but then she just stopped.
Once again, I am startong over....just eating healthy, counting calories and trying to get my big ole butt out of the chair and MOVING!!!
So much has been going on in the last year to cause me NOT to think of myself and my weight, my Dad was really sick for awhile last year while I was still posting, and in January he passed away. That through all of us in a tailspin, but especially my Mom. They had been married for 40 years and she just was not coping well with being alone.
Then she was diagnosed with skin cancer. James and I were having some problems with our marriage so while she was going through treatments, the children and I moved in with her to make sure she was eating and getting to the appointments and just to basically give her some company and to give us some time apart. Cancer is all gone now and she is doing very well. My marriage I am not so sure about. We are still living apart. I go home on weekends and sometimes we have great weekends, sometimes we fight all weekend. It boils down to my weight. He feels like I do not love him enough to lose weight. I have decided I have been hanging on to it to try and make him love me unconditionally...and that is why I resist and find reason (or excuses as the case may be) to quit. And then, the other day, I realized, HOW CAN I EXPECT HIM TO LOVE ME AT THIS WEIGHT WHEN I DO NOT LOVE MYSELF AT THIS WEIGHT????? And, a wise person told me that he HAS showed me he loves me unconditionally even if he does not say it since we are together still after 11 years and he has not gone anywhere and I have not lost weight.
So do you mind if a long lost person joins back in ???

HI!!!! YAY! We've missed you!

I'm so sorry to hear about your dad and then your mom. Glad things are going well for her. Sending you good vibes toward your marriage.

Me, I'm not much smaller these days but I feel like I have a second (ok, 9,321,332nd, but humor me) wind.

SOOOOOO glad to have you back.

Brandy

Kelly, a big and welcome back into the fold ... it's great to have you back! So sorry to hear the sad news about your dad and what happened to your mum. You've had a very difficult year and it's not surprising that a strain has been put on your marriage regardless of the fact that you think it may have something to do with your weight. As your friend has already said, you're still together after 11 years so it shows there's something worth hanging on to. I'm sure with time you'll work things out together.

As you will see, nothing much has changed around here ... I'm still where I was a year ago!! but I haven't given up!! I think most of us are 'starting afresh' right now, so it's a great time to come back to us

Well, I had another good day yesterday ... stayed within my cals I'm allowing myself 1500cals per day. On Monday I had 1382, and on Tuesday I had 1430 ... not bad. Not that anyone will be particularly interested, but I'm going to try to check-in every day and post my calorie totals ... this way I feel more accountable for what goes into my mouth!!

Nichola, it always helps keep me on track when someone else posts about their OP days. It's a great reminder that every day COUNTS and while I might waste one, someone else was losing weight!

M and I are still muddling through with WW - so far, so good.

Nichola, 400 is not that bad! Just take 100 off the top for the next four days and bam, you're even.

M and I are starting our 4th day of WWing. Instead of using his Flex to move around, Mark has just distributed them evenly throughout the week. His Target Points (if you don't do WW, you can estimate that 1 point is *about* 50 calories) should be 26, but he's doing 28 AND he's added 5 Flex to every day AND he's gone over by at LEAST 4 every day. The rat has lost like 6 pounds! I know it's not six pounds of fat and he won't continue to lose that much but it's certainly keeping me on track - I'm trying to catch up! So I guess in a twisted way, dieting with your husband is very motivational.

I'm still hanging in. I've done WATP every day this week - even yesterday, when I was sick with horrible allergies. That was big for me. Normally I'll use any excuse to skip out.

So that's our week so far. Hope things are well with the rest of you!

Hi Brandy, glad to hear that you and Mark are doing well with WWing and well done to you for keeping up with the WATP all week ... something I should be doing!

Kept around my 1500cals yesterday, so didn't manage to put right any of the 400 cals that I was over the day before! I'll have to do what you suggested and cut down for the next few days ... but now the weekend's here and I'll probably find that a wee bit difficult to do ... but I will try

Weighed in this morning and lost 2.5lbs so fairly pleased with that

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Nichola

Hi All! Glad to the thread's moving along and that we have Kelly back. Hooray!

Kelly - This is just my 2 cents: I don't think your husband has a problem with your weight, he has his own issues. If he were secure in his self he wouldn't need you to be a reflection on him.

Nichola - Congrats on the loss. Seems like you are back on track.

Brandy - It's great to see that you are still WATPing. I did 1/2 of a Jenny Craig workout and almost passed out.

Has anyone heard from Jo?

I've come to realization that if I do not learn to eat fish, meat, veggies and greens on a regular basis, then I will not lose weight. So I've decided to create a mantra: "Meat is good. Fish is great. Veggies are delcious.." and I'll say it to myself every night before I go to bed. Do you think it will work?

Oh I have to tell you all something. My husband just got home and I told him that the cat has been acting funny. He walking around the house crying. My hubby says it's because Arafat died.

Well, got to run off. Take care.

It's soooooo great to see Kelly back and posting!!!! Welcome back Kelly, sorry to hear about your parents.

Nichola - well done on your 2.5!!!

Brandy - hang in there!!

Raff - great mantra.....one I could do with using myself!!!!!

Well, sorry I've not been around last week, but I've been housesitting for my Mum (as she's been in Malta all week). She has a dog and some hens (her sheep finally died earlier this year), so we had to live there while she was away. She only lives five miles away, but it's a pain going to and fro all week. She comes home tonight, I have to collect her from the airport, and I can't wait to go home.

Mind you, I'm in my house now, it's freezing. Alan painted the wood in Dom's room this weekend, as we're putting laminate flooring down this week, and the house smells of paint fumes (last time we painted Dom's room we used non-smelly paint, but it chips too easily). So, all the windows are open, the heating is on, and it's still freezing!!!

Healthwise I've been struggling. Seem lethargic far too often, and I think it's because I'm straying from the path as far as my diabetes control is concerned. I really need to do something about it and fast.

As a result of feeling so crappy, I've completely fallen off the wagon, am piling the weight back on and feeling helpless. I am going to my weigh-in tomorrow though...maybe the humiliation will do the trick.

Hi all! Still WWing here with M. So far, so good. Of course, he's lost like ten pounds to my six (yes, I was up to 256!!! by the time we started last week and this AM I'm 251), never exercises, and consistantly goes over his points. Nice. Men. Grrr. But I'm glad he's hanging in with minimal complaining.

Raff, how's the kitty? Still in mourning?
Nichola, congrats on your 2.5! That's great!!!
Jo, sending you lots of good, healthy vibes. And hope you're back in your own home by now!

Ok, I have to go figure out how to fix the scale in my siggy. I'm just going to stick with my "start" of 252 (denial, denial, denial). Gah. I've like 13 pounds to go before I hit virgin fat. Depressing. Think I'll pour on more denial and not think about it. Yes. Feeling much better now.
