Sweets and ice cream is my favorite too. I crub those craving with fat free puddings (2 pts), fudgicles (1 points), and found these wonderful ice cream sandwiches called skinny cows (2 points) I found if I deprive myself of a little sweets than I am not truly changing my lifestyle.

My problem is I do concert security part time and I leave today for a 2 day concert. I will be working all weekend and unfortunately I will be around junk food and lots of drinking. I have tried to plan ahead I will let u know Sunday when I return how I managed.

Have a nice weekend all.

Default Awful Quiet in Here!

Just checking in. It's been pretty quiet in here the past few days. How'severyone doing?

Tracey--glad you stayed pretty-well on track while you were away. I read a lot about those Skinny Cows on various Boards. I'm going to have to take myself down to Trader Joe's and give em' a try.

I don't have anything actually fascinating to say, so I'll sign off. Talk to you all after Wednesday's meeting!

Must be a busy week for everyone. It is quiet.
Well, I did my Monday weigh in and lost .8. I talked with my WW leader after the meeting because this past week I really did everything right and thought that I should have noticed more of a change. She had some good suggestions about modifying when I eat my larger meal and mixing up when I exercise ( I am a devote a.m. exerciser.) It makes sense because I eat more and then don't move again until the next a.m.

My husband is finally coming around to the WW idea and I think he will be more responsive to meals. That will make it esier overall.

Tracey, fun job working concerts. I know what you mean though when there really aren't good choices around.

I don't remember who offered the 1 pt fudgcicle option but that is PERFECT for me. Thanks.

Hello everyone!

Here i sit with just a few minutes to spare before i have to shove off for work,so i'll make this quick.

I'm so glad to see that there is a 30-something board *too [email protected] cool*... (even noticed some fellow canadians - excellent!!!!)

I've been on WW for 4 weeks (not the first time, but this is the LAST time) and have lost 5 pounds. Kind of discouraging, but, hey - better than going up, thats for sure.

I'm 32, single, no kidlets, and work for a packaging company on the order desk.

I find that my mornings and lunch are super,, but when i get home, whoooly mackeral... i go into autopilot, and raid the cupboards for something with fat content. This, i'm trying to break.

My wallet hasnt liked the meeting lately, so i have to cease in attending, however, i find a plethora of inspiration on this site. I am also hypothryroid, and hear that limiting your refined carbs is a better way to go. (still trying to figure it out, actually.. hehe..)

My short term goals are to lose in ten pound increments (so i can at least see some light at the end of the tunnel) and in the fall, i have to squish my fat [email protected]@ into an airline seat, and i am determined to make it a comfortable flight.

I really hope that we can keep this thread going, and continue to offer the help and support that we all need during this journey.

Thanks for hearing me, and i will definately be participating in this thread!!!!

I weighed in last night because i have another show tonight. I lost .6 which is good considering my choices this weekend. I am inching closer to my goal weight. I have 23.8 pounds to go. This message board is such a wonderful way to exchange Ideas. I just want to thank everyone for the encouragement.

Way to go Tracey!! Bit by bit we get closer to goal.. me, however.. hehe.. i got ALOT of bits to lose before i get to goal. But there is NO way i'm giving up. This week hasnt been all that great, a birthday last night (indulged in a bit of carrot cake - TOTALLY blew the points outta the water) I weigh tomorrow night, so it will be a light day today.

I agree, its nice to see the support here. I hope all of us 30 somethings can keep this thread going. I know I will definately be here checking it out regularly.

Again, good for you Tracey!!!

Hello! Saw the 30-something's thread and felt the need to join in, especially after I saw a "hockeychick" and lots of Canadians are already here!!!

I joined WW in Jan of 2000, and lost 20 lbs in about 5 months, then kind of fell of the wagon. I have maintained the loss though (playing with 3-5 lbs since Oct of last year). I don't feel badly about staying the same for so long - it really just proved to me that I have learned healthy eating habits and I can maintain when I need to. Now, I just need to "kick it up a notch"!

I've still got about 25 lbs to get to my goal of being in the mid-120s. I've decided to take things 10 weeks at a time - I've got a 10 week cross-training plan that will allow me to add weight training and other activities into my exercise schedule. I'm a pretty structured person - so having a list of things to do each week that I can cross off helps me a bunch!

Here's my bio for anyone interested:
Name: Lucianne
Age: 33 (yikes!)
Hometown: St Pete, FL
Occupation: Product Manager
Status: single (BF of close to 4 yrs!)
Children: not yet!
Hobbies: ice hockey (yes, I play!), cooking, reading, learning golf (I'm just at the flog stage...)
Weight Loss Program: Weight Watchers
How long: not really counting
Start weight: 168
Now weight: 146
Goal weight: 120-125
What's worked the most for you: planning!!!! I've got to have my points, exercise, etc. all planned out - If I leave it up to the last minute, I end up eating something really out of control...
Ultimate reward when goal is reached: Being able to celebrate the accomplishment of losing weight, knowing that I enjoyed the journey, too. And shopping for a new wardrobe!

Well, gotta run - I've got a game in an hour!

I'm really looking forward to participating in this forum!

Dont worry about the carrot cake. You cant change the past just focus on today and you will be fine.

welcome to the group

I just needed to share my news all. I have been wearing shorts all summer and I knew the clothes were getting bigger since my weight loss but tonight I had to wear dress slacks for a show I am doing. I dug out my size 18 pants that fit ok on me well the practically fell off me. I guess before school start in September I will have to go shopping ( Yeah). I am guessing I might be down to 14 but I will wait until close to school I am hoping to buy size 10.

Default HOLY COW!

Wow! I have been gone for a while, and I come back to find this thread has taken on a life of its own!!! I am so happy!

Nice to have all of the new folks stopping by. Don't you just feel like we are all in this together? I know it helps me tons to know there are others out there struggling day-by-day like I am.

I haven't done much in the weight LOSS department lately. I've been milling around in the MAINTAINING department. Three weeks in a row I have maintained. Not that I am complaining (YES I AM!) but I've come to the point where I really need to see the scale go DOWN! I did increase my points this week so that I am not just at minimum. I know this is the problem. Also, haven't been eating any fat points. Added 2 points of pure, unadulterated fat points, too. Plus, just started the TOM so with maintaining this week, that will surely mean at least a two pound loss next week. It better! Talk about frustrated!

Since this thread has gotten so long, I am going to start 30 Somethings #2. Lets continue on with our conversations there!
