I’m commenting to mark later when I start next week.  I’ve already been looking up point totals for things, bringing my healthy snacks into work, and last night when I made my husband and I nachos and dip for the Oscars I made recipes from Skinnytaste, which calculates WW points. 

Let’s do this!!

I am going to try to get in on this too.  I started working out at the end of October and have lost 6 pounds so far. I would like to lose 5 more by summer.  I know these will be hard to lose so hopefully this will help.

Skittles131:  Great thread. Are you still posting & updating? I weighed in today & lost NOTHING, but no gain either. Unlike you, i use EVERY SINGLE ONE of my extra weekly points. Always have. If I didn’t have those I wouldn’t do WW. It would be too hard. 

Anyways, hope you’re doing well! I haven’t been on WB as much since the changes. It’s so disappointing but oh well. I’ll check back on ya later!

Started today and I think I might opt out of doing Smart Start… I like the accountability counting my points gives me.  Today I have 13 left which will afford me a lovely chicken stir fry with rice and a glass of wine!

Skittles131:  LOL! “What do we do? We swiiiiiiim…!” 🙂 I LOVE that movie. Funniest Disney movie I’ve ever seen.

Yes, it’s very VERY, I’ll even say EXCRUCIATINGLY painful to see a gain on the scale when doing WW. I think it’s because (at least to me) it feels like I’m starving a lot of the time, so my brain says “I just KNOW I’ve lost 97 lbs this week!” Then step on the scale and wah wah waaahhhhh…. A gain. Or in my case, no change at all. Then I get upset & want to quit, because “WHY am I walking around with hunger gnawing out my stomach if I’m still gaining weight?! Might as well have some fun while doing it, right?! So pass the Hostess!” Which is counter-productive to my goal.

We need to focus! Me, you & mrs_pudding_pop:. We can be long distance, internet WW buddies lol. We can do it! Every time the scale laughs in our faces, we will stomp on it & laugh right back. (My scale is glass though so I gotta be careful with the stomping).

It’s so hard to lose weight, no matter what the method, but for me WW is THE most effective method I’ve tried that excludes practically killing myself at the gym. Last time I did it, all I did was walk, sometimes jog, about an hour a day, 3 or 4 times a week (& that was only for a couple months out of the YEAR I was on it, because summers in OK are brutal!) I still lost weight, no workout required, which is kind of magical because I’d never done that before. I was a hardcore exercise nut for years before I met hubby, then I packed the lbs on, got on WW, lost them, had baby & repeat lol.

mrs_pudding_pop:  About the stir-fry, do you use a recipe?

okqueenbee:  We just grill some chicken, throw it on some brown rice and add seasonings and mixed veggies. 🙂 

DH and I have nothing unhealthy in our house, our issue is we like to go out to eat a lot and drink wine. ;P  Luckily for me he’s 100% supportive and we are working on it together.

mrs_pudding_pop:  That’s awesome! Sounds good! I never make stir fry, but I do eat the lean cuisine Asian dinners, which are pretty good IMO. I’m not a big wine drinker. I’d much rather eat my points than drink them. Especially if I can have chocolate after dinner 🙂

I start counting my points again tomorrow! If anyone has any tasty WW friendly meals/snacks please share with me! I love the idea of a support/accountability thread! 🙂

Ladies, make this tonight and thank me later.

 Seriously… I felt like I was eating something bad!  I had a 3 pt WW ice cream bar for dessert and that put me at 28 pts for the day (my pts limit). 

This morning my jeans feel a bit better than they did the last time I wore this pair (a couple of months ago).  YeehaW! 🙂

I join this! I am down 6.6 pounds with 11 more to to hit my goal weight.

I hit a bump with a family funeral down South where I gorged myself with bourbon and cornbread and mutton for a week and I’m finally back to below pre-funeral week weight. Yay.

My biggest issue is weekends eating out with SO- not just stuffing myself with decadent food and endless wine. Gosh it sucks how many points are in alcohol! I’ve been trying to save all weeklys for the weekend so I can still enjoy it- just making better choices when out is key. 

I really do love WW though because it actually works. And I have this whole size 4 wardrobe just sitting in my closet… So it won’t even be a shopping issue it’s just about getting into the beautiful clothes I already have. The day my Rebecca Minkoff bodycon dress doesn’t look snug on my hips I shall be thrilled!!

Skittles131:  Congrats! You’re doing FANTASTIC! Keep it up & you’ll reach goal weight waaaay before me lol (but that’s ok :).

I’ve done really good this week EXCEPT for last night. The only treat night this week & I went over my points, even when using the extras 🙁 oh well. I’m trying to make up for it by lowering my daily points from today thru Sunday, then weigh in on Monday! We’ll see. I’ve never had a post-baby body before, so I think my metabolism is different than it used to be. This might not be as easy as it once was… I’m trying though.

I need to try those steak fries!

MrsBuesleBee:  

Welcome & good luck. Size 4 sounds like a dream. I’ll be OK with a size 10 again :/
