Good Morning, Everyone!!!

After a stressfull month I've decided that I'm ready to jump back on the WW wagon. I've been pretty steady at maintaining the weight I've lost but I haven't lost any more. OH well, it's a new day right? My new roommate moved in this weekend and we've decided to lose weight together. I'm not sure how it's going to work out because we seem to be one different levels of commitment. We'll see how it goes.

Well, I suppose I should get back to work. Hope everyone has a good day.

Well I am trying to eat healthy but when you are staying in someone elses home it is hard to do. breakfast was fruit, lunch was a tuna sandwitch and dinner will be ginger chicken finers but they are being fried...ouch

So tomorrow I have offered to cook dinner tomorrow, so it will be boiled fresh shrimp and steamed veggies I am looking forward to it....

everyone else doing ok?

I am actually having a really tough week. I did the camping thing with food made for me by my parents, not much room for pickiness. Plus the snacking and drinking associated with camping! Then I've been in workshops the past few days and I planned on eating fiberone bars or heading home for lunch, but they've been catered. There were panera sandwiches one day, with salad as a side, then pizza today with salad as a side. I have many more of these things this week and it's an awful position to be in because I am new at the school and nobody wants to be the new person rudely rejecting food right away. I could eat salad only but then have no protein and I am STARVING by lunch because they are all day workshops. I have made the ultimate decision to take a pass on weighing in this coming Friday. I am so stressed about school and my first year of teaching that I have found the whole eating thing only more stressful, and as I've tried point counting I got the failure feeling and just felt like pigging out. I am not going absolutely nuts but I am just taking this week to focus on the work part, which I've found I haven't gone too crazy at night. I will still be on the boards and will weigh in next week (and will TRULY have my own eating schedule once school actually starts next Tuesday), so we'll see. Either it's the right thing for me right now, or not, who knows??

Oh Katie hang in there this has not been my best week either! I can't weigh in since I am not home so I have no way to judge if I gained or lost--more likely a gain--I won't be able to weigh in until Sept 9th!

Just keep posting and we will work something out and keep it all positive I know we can

btw good luck next week on your first days of 'school'

Thanks Nancy!!

Where is everyone, how is everyone doing???? Updates!!!!!!

I haven't been counting this week because of the craziness, but I think I still am doing okay. I have been busy and though eating the heavier lunches etc. that have been catered at school, I have hardly snacked because I don't have the time!! I will try to get back to normal this week.

Katie, ...it's hard to make good choices when there are such yummy 'bad' ones around!! Your first year of teaching...how exciting!! You'll do great and I bet they wouldn't be offended if you passed for health reasons on the catered lunches but not being there myself I wouldn't know the atmosphere at your school like you would. Chin up!!

Hang in there Nancy, you're always so positive and offer great support...I know it's hard when you're away from home but you can do it!! Or you can reset after you're home and get back on track again too. I firmly believe we have to live also!!

I am in teacher's college this year. I have just finished my first week back at school after 13 years!! I am loving it!! I'm finally doing what I was meant to be doing years ago! My youngest child is in school this year full time so it seemed like it was a good time to do this for me.

It's been easy to get all my water in as I take a bottle with me to class and eating healthy breakfasts and lunches is easy as I plan and pack my own but my issue is at night! I'm up at 5:45 and by the time evening rolls around...I'm starving, ravenous....UNSATIABLE! I've managed to lose the weight I gained camping but it's taken MUCH longer because of this darned snacking!! Maybe once I'm used to this new schedule it will be easier. Let's hope.

Hope everyone had a great week and will have a great weekend too!!

Oooh what do you want to teach Michelle??

Everyone at my school is super nice, and in the future I will definitely pass on the unhealthy stuff (greasy pizza makes me sick now, apparently!) All the new teachers at the school who have taught before were saying how generous it's been for them to offer lunch and breakfast, so I just didn't want to start out being rude if it's apparently not a common gesture on the part of the admin. I am super excited to teach, just nervous too! All high school freshman should make for an interesting year!

Katier you will do it, those HS freshman--think of them as junior adults who know everything and you are there only to take up space LOL--kidding As a mom of three and the youngest is now 17 I have had my share of teens come through the house!

Well had a scare yeserday -- mid morning I started having intestional cramps then chest pains, shortness of breath, dizzy, light headed they would not go away when I walked, sat, laid down...so I had my daughter rush me to er. After 7 hours there (nothing fast about that place) I was feeling tons better if not over tired and all they found was that I had a high white blood count and could not find the cause, said it may be viral. But anyway I am back at my daughters and feeling fine today, I plan to resume my regulr activies.

So with all that excitment I did not eat my meals as I should breakfast and snack were fine but then it hit and the rest of the day all I had was some cheetos when we go home from the ER....but they made me feel better

How is everyone else...you know it is almost the first of Sept and we will have to start a new thread

I had a busy week myself. I started a new work schedule AND I started back to school. It's my VERY last semester as an undergrad!!! YAY!!!!

I'm so excited but I admit that I didn't have a great week point wise either. We were doing really good until Tuesday night when we went up to the school for a welcome back get to know ya thing. Mostly it was for the freshmen but my roommates friend was on the committee that put it together so we went to support her. I can only say 1 thing.... Free Food.... lol... the food vendors from the student union put on quite a spread and it was so hard not to partake. Once I did that it was hard to put myself back on track.

But here I am. I spent the morning planning my menu for the week. I've decided that I need to keep some frozen dinners in the house for nights that I'm out late and don't feel like cooking. I know that's something that's worked for me in the past and I'm not sure why I stopped doing it. Since I'm back to both work and school I know there'll be nights that I just don't feel like cooking.

Here's hoping we all get "settled" into a routine again and we'll be able to get back on track.

My program qualifies me to teach K-6 and in a perfect world I'd choose gr 2 but it's very hard to get a job as a teacher here right now so I'm thinking I'll get an opportunity to try lots of grades as a supply teacher.

Well I know we are all going to be back on track this week afterall Sept will be starting in a few days and new threads to chat and weigh in.... I am excited.

I have one more week of staying with my daughter, her boyfriend and the new baby. So eating is still a bit of a challenge but ai have to give the b/f credit he is the one who does the cooking and shopping and he is working with me so I can eat healthy. He even bought some fresh shrimp and salmon to eat this week. Which is expensive but good for all. (considering they are mostly red meat eaters)

Tonight was not good though...fresh ravorili with speggetti sauce and a slice of garlic bread...but I did walk 4.5 miles

Chrissy - frozen dinners are my saving staple lots of days. Smart Ones were onsale at Kroger - check them out.

Kiki - how exciting, I didn't go to school until later in life either. Well, I did, but didn't graduate until later. I found my focus to be a lot better than many of the more traditional students. I was there to learn, and interested in the learning so much more than when I went when I was younger. Also, I found I ENJOYED it.

Nancy - what can I say but enjoy that baby luvin'.

I've been having an on again, off again relationship with WW, but still losing weight. I have found that I am aware (yes, it has sunk in I guess) of when I am overdoing or eating badly and reel myself in. OH, I have endulged, but less than I would have before. I just survived a kids party that would have been a hot dog eating binge - and I ate 1. woohoo. For me, reigning myself in is a big deal. It's not like me.

Also, my aunt is in town off and on. She loves to walk, so I've been walking with her sometimes to spend time with her. She walks my butt off - literally and figuratively (sp? - looks wrong no matter how I spell it!).
