I have been “back” to WW about a month. I had done it for awhile lost 30lbs then had to stop when I lost my job. Now that I am working I am back. I gained 10lbs while I was home 5 months so my goal is to lose that 10 and anything after that is a bonus. My wedding is 7/10/10

I would love a WW accountability thread!

I have been “trying” to get back into it – this time last year I lost 25 lbs on WW and over the year i gained 10lbs back – GRRRRR 

I really need to get back into it seriously and I think having an accountability thread will help!!!!

FutureMrsMartin and CuteMommie- You sound like me. I lost 25lb and have put 9lb back on. Guess what, stopping counting and going back to old habits makes you put on weight!

Who here goes to WW classes? When I am on plan I try and always go. It does make a difference. This week was about looking for non-scale victories- trying to look at other changes apart from weight. It was quite inspiring- a lady who never walked now going on a hiking holiday for two weeks, a lady who used to struggle with walking and wearing a UK size 24 (US20) and now a UK 10 (US6) who runs half marathons. The lady showing us how many notches on her wrist watch she has gone down. The man telling us how is cholesterol levels have gone down.

All amazing and inspirational. Made me focus on how I need to be a bit more of a healthy weight so that I can do more for a family. Dear Fiance and I are getting married to start our own family, and I want to be as healthy as possible for optimal fertility and to be able to enjoy a long healthy life with them.

I think this would be great. I’m not really actively doing it now (although I think I will start again in the next few weeks… no real time or energy to work out means I need to be a lot more careful on the diet!), but when I start again I could totally use some support. ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t know about you guys, but living on 19 points a day made me pretty cranky.

I have lost 7lbs so far, but we are going to St Lucia for our honeymoon and I want to look better for that more than the wedding I think! LOL..I was a size 18 when I started in the 190’s now I’m in the 160’s and in a 14.

Me too! I lost 40 a couple years ago and have put most of that back on. I’d love to talk to some other girls to keep me accoutable!

My parents did Weight Watchers a few years ago, and I’m like a walking testimonial for them ~ I tell EVERYONE about their points system. ๐Ÿ™‚ My mom lost something like 30+ pounds in one summer (Dad didn’t have as much to lose) and she’s kept it off.

You go girls!

I lose 30 last year, gained 10 back and haven’t been able to get back on the WW wagon recently. It’s just not WORKING! I’d like a thread too!

I lost almost 40 lbs on WW!!  I swear by them…it has been the only thing that has worked for me, that and working out!  I started WW back in 2002 and gladly kept it off (+ or – 5 lbs during vacation and holidays!)  To this day I still count my points, its more of a LIFESTYLE change and not just a diet!  You bees keep up the good work and stay on track!!

How are our days going?

I had a training day at a hotel, so took lunch in incase it was unhealthy. Luckily it was poached salmon, new potatoes and salad with fresh fruit for desert, so I could join in. So many times events I go to have muffins and chips (fries) and baskets of biscuits. I must go to at least 2 of these things a week, and no wonder the lbs crept back on!

Last might I made delish salsa verde with half the olive oil and a bit of water to make it sludgy. Low point- about 0.5 per tablespoon, and really jazzes up grilled fish, lamb and chicken. Woop woop!

Yesterday was such a blow-out junk food day that I decided to start up again TODAY, not in a few weeks. I’m already hungry. ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyone know of a good 7 point dinner? ๐Ÿ™‚

Fiance made me some oatmeal with apple this morning–it started raining in LA today and it seemed like a better day for oatmeal than cold cereal, my usual–and I’ve got my morning snack and lunch sitting in my office fridge. But I have class late tonight right after work, so remembering not to buy that soda and gummi bears might be harder than usual today ;).

Marigold- you need to ask us more. What have you got in your fridge? Meat, fish, chicken, veggies, eggs?
