OK so the best way to stay on track I found is to have a group and BE accountable!

My weigh in day is Monday. Anyone else want to make that the day and check in here to post our progress? Finding someone in your own life to buddy with helps too as long as you both are equally motivated.

Another way to be accountable is to actually make yourself record everything you eat in the tracker. Part of being overweight is ignoring the amount you eat, and WW only works if you are accountable to yourself. So each day, rather than focussing on the big goal of losing weight, focus on the small goal of recoring every last thing you eat that day. When you see a good number on the scale it is so rewarding that it helps make it worth while.

I was hoping someone would bring this thread back to life! Today starts week 2 of re-joining WW for me and my weigh in day is Monday too. At weigh in this morning found I lost 5lbs! :appl: Needless to say, I'm feeling pretty motivated. I've got about 30 to lose total so the 5lbs is a good dent.

Dreamer, how ae you liking the new points+ system? I originally did WW last year (and gained it all back :knockout: ) with the old points system so this new one is a bit of an adjustment but I'm stoked that fruit and veggies are 0pts!

I recently discovered Magic Pop and they have been a life savor for me! 4 of them are only 1 pt! I usually break them up in pieces and have them with salsa (0pts!). Great crunch and pretty close to tortilla chips with salsa. I munch on them while cooking. Yum!

Totally agree! Having small goals to meet and seeing losses are what keep me on track.

IG I don't know how I feel, this is my first day! haha. I think it is easier if the fruit and veggies at 0.

I think that I will be using WW for life to maintain once I have lost. DH and I have proven we cannot maintain without actively montioring and counting calories. In the past I lost 35lbs and only kept it off as long as I want counting calories -- 2 years! -- but gained when I stopped being accountable. So DH and I have accepted we will basically be working the program forever! Its ok, we need to make a lifestyle change and keep it up for our kids, who we don't want to deal with body and weight issues the same way that we have in our lives. That was our motivation to get fit before I got pregnent and it is our motivation now too.

Hi ladies! :wavey: I've not been checking in here because it seemed those of us who were here had all jumped ship and not been checking in with each other. I'm happy to have someone to chat with and happy to see you both here!

I've been somewhat off plan lately. I keep telling myself I'll just finish out this week not tracking and then get with it the following week and though some days I start out well both in food choices and tracking I generally finish poorly. I gained somewhere around 5lbs about a month ago when I moved into my new house and didn't really care. I've really struggled with getting the motivation back.

Hopefully having you both here will give me some motivation. I really need to just decide today is the day and do it. I've lost right at 20lbs since February and would like to lose about 30 more, though WW tells me I need to lose about 40 more.

Since eating for today is done I am deciding tomorrow I get back on the horse! I think I'm talking myself into it as I type. :cheeky: My weigh in day is Friday so I will start reporting back here on Fridays but will be checking in more than that!

I'm realizing the same thing Dreamer and it makes me kind of sad. Sad that I don't have the discipline to do it on my own, but oh well. Your motivation to live a healthier lifestyle for your kids sake is very much similar to reasons I want to get healthy as well.

Stepcutgirl - Yay for getting back on the wagon! I hope you make good choices today as sometimes the first day can be the hardest (for me at least). Do you participate in the online program only or do you go to meetings?

**********************************
Ok, so here's my question...do I eat all my daily points at all costs or is it ok to leave a couple at the end of the day? Last week I had a few days where I only ate ~27pts and I have 29 to use. I did not touch my weekly point allowance. I was never hungry even though I ate less points than I was given. Is this ok or should I find a way to get them in no matter what?

IG-Thank you! I now do online only. When I started I did meetings and online for about a month but I didn't like my local meeting that I was able to make and didn't feel it was helpful at all so I switched to online only. I'm lucky because I have a lot of support, my husband, sister and mom are all on it also. My sister reached her goal weight and my husband has lost a hair under 40lbs!

Do you go to meetings or just do online?

Thud... That was me as I firmly fell off the wagon. Yup, I'm not even anywhere near the wagon at this point....

I'm trying to at least go into maintenance mode. I was doing okay in maintenance mode until I went on a mini-vacation 3 weeks
ago and also celebrated my birthday (which I count as a HUGE holiday!) Where o where did my motivation go? I was doing so
well for so long and was so close. I was at the point they asked how much more I wanted to lose and told me I looked good. But, for ME, I wanted to lose about 20 pounds more (which I don't know if that is even feasible). Anyway, I'm going to keep looking in this
thread and maybe I'll find my motivation lurking behind the potted palm!

IG-My first day back was decent. I went way over my points (and suspect after a girls weekend in Orlando I am sans weeklies) when my friend brought over cupcakes but I tracked it all. I know we are eating out with the in laws tonight so I'm going to keep it as low in points of a day as possible today.

Aryana-I thud-ed right there with ya girl. I'm lacking in motivation but I'm not close enough to stop. If I only had 10-20 left I would probably decide I could be "a little chubby" and be ok with it but sadly...I have much more to go than that. Happy belated birthday! How is the new job going?

Weigh in day for me and it was surprisingly happy. I'm down 2.6lbs and only about a half pound over my weight at it's lowest on WW. Lowest meaning the least I've weighed since being on WW, not in my adult life! I'm not really sure how that happened but I'll take it. It gives me bit of motivation to keep trying.

How is everyone else doing?

I was just coming around to see how your weigh in went Stepcut! Congrats!!! 2.6lbs is awesome! Seeing that kind of loss really does provide motivation to keep going. :appl:

This week has been good...hoping I can stay motivated through the weekend though. We are going out for my sister's birthday tonight and she chose Cheesecake Factory aka the land of humongo sized portions. I've already viewed the menu so I know what I'm having ahead of time and decided to go with the roasted pear and chicken salad. I'll just get it without the blue cheese or candied pecans and with low fat vinagarette on the side so I should be good. Then we are heading off to the comedy club to catch a show. there is a 2 item minimum and I want to indulge a tiny bit without going overboard. I'm thinking I'll have 2 drinks. Any ideas for a yummy drink that won't derail my points? I tend to like sweeter drinks with margaritas being my favorite! :love:

Hope your first week went well Dreamer! Check in when Ryder lets you!
Re: Anyone interested in a Weight Watcher''s thread?

Post by Dreamer_D » August 12th, 2011, 5:45 pm
IG I think you should eat all your points. The daily allowance when changed to calories is actually not much. Think about it -- you have a whole day or two worth of flex points at your disposal, and you are supposed to eat *all those too* and still lose weight. If you cut too low, you risk your metabolism slowing and you don't want that!

Stepcut you know, a little chubby is ok too :)) When I saw a nutritionist and lost weight in my early 20s, her way of estimating a healthy weight for me was to either look at the lowest healthy body weight I had successfully maintainted as an adult for 2 years, OR look at my healthy weight from highschool and add 20 lbs. For me, those ended up being the same weight, which is about 20lbs more that WW says I should be but it a weight I can maintain and feel good at.

This week is great so far! I am breastfeeding which earned me 8 extra points per day :o and since I weight so much I feel positively gluttonous. Hee hee. DH is on plan too so it makes it easier. Honestly, we just don't eat out when on WW, which saves money and is healthier too, so it is not too bad.

I am saving all my flex points for pizza on the weekend.

Feeling gluttonous while cutting back is awesome! that's one of the things I love about WW...there isn't any food that I'm told I can't have. It makes me feel better knowing I can have a snickers if I want to, I just have to decide if it's worth it.

Weigh in was today and I'm down another lb for a 6 lb total loss so far. :appl:
How did weigh in go for you Dreamer?
Re: Anyone interested in a Weight Watcher''s thread?

Post by Dreamer_D » August 15th, 2011, 11:54 am
Good for you IG! 6lbs is great. Are you feeling your clothing being looser? (And BTW it is cute that you are losing weight while expecting a child, that is a nice change from the alternative :cheeky: )

I lost 3lbs this week! I think last week the weigh in was elevated because of weather/salt, so it might not be "real" loss but I'll take it!

After my last pregnancy I lost all but 10lbs in a year without doing anything, just breast feeding, meaning I lost about 30lbs or so in that year. But I would like to lose the weight faster this time. I wonder how long it will take?? I have 39lbs to go to reach my pre-pregnancy weight, and then would like to lose 10lbs more.

Stepcut, woohooo for 2.6!

Dreamer, woohooo for 3 lbs!


I am joining this thread because I gained 33 lbs with my twin boys. I lost 26 lbs in 2 months after having them but just recently gained about 3 or 4 lbs so I need to keep losing. I have about 10 lbs to lose; it would have been 7 lbs but I have been snacky and trying to readjust to eating less.

I am glad to be part of this thread!!! :D Oh and I have been a Weight Watcher for I would say 6 years. I lost 35 lbs in the past and my happy weight goal is in the 135-140 range (meaning I can maintain that and and did that in the past). :wavey:

Hi Everyone,

So nice to see some familiar faces here! I joined on-line almost two months ago, tracked for two days, and then STOPPED. Oops! I kind of really do not like tracking points, but I really like Dreamer's suggestion to make THAT the goal each day. Actually, I read Dreamer's suggestion when she first posted it, thought it was a brilliant idea ("even I can do that") and then proceeded not to log-in at all.

Questions: Do you all look up values for the food that you eat? For instance, a slice of bread is 2 points, but do you input the information for each type of bread that you eat to make sure you are entering the exact points, or do you just wing it and go with the 2 points? I feel like I get caught up in being exact about everything, then get frustrated and just don't bother at all.

Also, I'd love to hear what some of you all are eating on a typical day.

Dreamer - You've mentioned that you're a vegetarian. Are you eating a protein at every meal? That's something I really struggle with. I'd love to hear what you're eating when you're on plan. Congrats on your loss so far! That's great that your DH participates with you.

IG - Yay for 6 less pounds!! :appl: Are you recording every day? Working out too?

StepCutGirl - Congrats on losing 2.6 pounds! :appl: You must use a digital scale then?

Skippy - Yay, nice to see you here!! You sound like an expert at this stuff. Help me!! :bigsmile:

Aryana - C'mon back! It's like a party here now!

****

AFM: I should mention that I'd be happy to lose 20 lbs, but would be REALLY happy to lose 40 lbs! I have lost all but 5 lbs of my prego weight, by doing NOTHING differently. I have closets full of clothing that I am unable to wear since I started gaining weight over the past 5-7 years or so. I take a low dose of an SSRI, which I believe makes it very hard for me to lose weight. That may or may not be true; however, it has certainly been a mental block for me, if nothing else.

I started tracking this morning. One day at a time.

LV, hi momma! I am not an expert. i wish!!! hehee I haven't done the new plan yet. I have done the online thing since it came with my membership. If, I knew the points I would save to my favorites things I would eat often and give them a points value. If you rather look it up then you can but I found that sometimes it would take a long time and making it a favorite was quicker for me. Or you can write it down in a notepad if that is easier?? I use to hand write stuff too. What ever gets you counting points or tracking the quickest since I know you are busy w/a little one. Hopefully the online stuff hasn't changed too much and I am not making up stuff. lol :cheeky:

Yay for tracking today! I will too! woot!

Re: Anyone interested in a Weight Watcher''s thread?

LV, sorry I misunderstood your question. I do find out the exact points since breads can vary in fiber and calories. I use to input calories, fiber and fat and then get the points and make it my favorite (manual input and save). I am boring and would eat the same bread so I saved it as a favorite since I knew I would use it over and over again. You are right, one day at a time. that is my motto for weight loss and may other things. :)

IMPer, yay for 6 lbs!!! that is so awesome!!!!! :appl:

I am saving all my flex points for pizza on the weekend.


IG-I think you should eat all or at least most of your points including all your weeklies. I'm not sure if I've stated this recently but when I was doing really well and was being a weight loss machine I was eating each and every daily and weekly points. When I started pulling back on how many I was eating to try to boost weight loss even more I hit a road block and have struggled to get back to it ever since. It starts to become a mental game where even if you know you need to eat them you worry it will halt the loss and pull back, at least that was how it was for me.

Dreamer-I'm pretty well with you that I could be happy at decently heavier than WW says I should be. I don't really have a weight or size goal but just more of a how I feel goal.

Congrats to both of you on your weigh ins!

Skippy-Welcome back! How are the boys doing?

LV-I look up the foods if I'm not familiar. I've been doing WW since January and like most tend to eat the same things most of the time so I know what the point value is of anything I eat on a regular basis in addition to the portion size. If I eat out I try to find the nutrition info online and then input it into the system using the calculator and then save it so if I eat it again it's saved. If it's a new food or a rare food and I don;t know the value off hand I do look it up.

My typical day is coffee with 3 tablespoons of flavored creamer=3 points, Chobani greek yogurt=2-4 points depending on flavor, a frozen lunch entree usually from WW or Lean Cusine points vary but generally=6-10, dinner is almost always a lean meat (variable) cous cous=5 points per cut (I usually have a half cup) and a veggie with spray butter=0.

I have snacks through out the day and really lately like the snackwells 100 calorie packs, they are mostly 3 points whereas most other 100 calorie brands are 4 points and seem to have more and be more filling to me. I really do not eat fruit anymore and I need to change that.

Often after dinner I have a WW strawberry frozen yogurt pop and they are my current addiction. They are 2 points per bar and I could take out the box in a sitting so I have to really watch it.

Oh...and yes I do have a digital scale. I got an eatsmart brand one a few months ago and find it to be very reliable. I had trouble with my old one giving me various weights.

I also wanted to say that my sister is on a low dose SSRI. She does not have a weight problem and is an avid runner in addition to watching what she eats but she did gain about 5 lbs after going on Lexapro.

Happy Friday!!! Catch you after Sunday and I will let you know what I think :bigsmile:

SC, I love the WW desserts! I love the fudge bars, they use to be 1 point, not sure now. The boys are great; yesterday they turned 4 mos :bigsmile: You are a sweetie to ask, thanks!

Okay I joined WW!

LV, forget everything I said. You can't use a tracker like I use to so yes look up points online. There is an app out there that you can scan bar codes to get points by taking pics with your camera! Wow I can't believe how much more complicated it has become.

Yay for free fruit and veggies. I bought tons of lean meats, veggies and fruit!

Hope everyone has a great healthy week :wavey:

WEIGH IN DAY!!

For me anyways! haha

I am down another 3 lbs for a total of 6lbs in two weeks. Hope it keeps up!

LV I use favourites to enter the things I eat on a daily basis and just use that. If you spend a little time on the favourites entering all your usual foods then it becomes simple to just click click click on the foods. I am NOT obsessive about it, it needs to be doable. I did the plan for 6 months pre-pregnancy and lost 20lbs, so perhaps my lack of discipline slowed the loss, but it worked for me and our family. So bread is one point -- but we only eat certain types ya know?? So there could be a weensy bit of variation but not much.

On plan I basically don't eat out at all unless it is something I can easily work out the points for. It makes it simpler. Boring, but simpler, and it is healthier since all eating out is too many points, and you save money too!

A really good tip I got from my nutritionist was to regularize one meal per day, usually breakfast -- so you *always* eat the same brekkie. I think it also helps to have 4-5 lunches that are your go-to, and then a bunch of dinners too. Again, not all that exciting, but you can save your flex points for more interesting meals!

Telling you my daily meals won;t likely help much. Between weighing so much and breastfeeding, I get a postivitely scandalous 49 (was 50!) points per day! :o I eat all of them and it feels pretty good.

I am vegetarian and I do eat protein with every meal. My stapled are milk/cheese, beans, and tofu. We only eat whole grains, and brown bread and pasta and brown rice all have protein too. Breakfast is always 1.5 cups of shredded wheat with 3/4 cup 1% milk and then as much strawberries as fit in the bowl! For lunches, I admit right now with a newborn my diet is whatever is fastest: Can of lentil soup with grilled cheese; quesedilla (cheese and beans) and salad; subway sandwich with baked lays; or if really in a rush, a plate of fruit nuts and cheese. Snacks are fruits and nuts or half a peanut butter sandwich, but I find I don't snack all that much. Dinners are whatever DH makes right now since I am usually breastfeeding at that time. We are bad and made life easier by usually feeding our son dinner on his own and then we eat when he is in bed. Maybe 2 nights a week we manage to eat as a family. We will have things like: whole wheat pasta with tomato sauce that has tofu in in (crumble with a fork and saute with onion and soy sauce and spices, add a jar of sauce, voila!) and salad; veggie burgers and veggies; thin crust pizza from dominoes (22 points in a small, nice flex point treat!).

I have treats every day. Creamsicles are only 2 points and I will have a couple per day.

I usually save all my flex for the weekend and then eat things I like, such as pizza, on the weekend.

And I love that fruit and veggies are free! I never track them, just eat as much as I can, so much easier.

Meant to add that if I am out I either jot down what I eat or just remember, I work in front of the computer, and now with the newborn when he naps I am on PS :cheeky: so I just write it down.

But I find when I am on track I just eat so much less frequently and so much less that it is not much to track and remember!

Skippy, So you're going to the meetings now? Good for you! You asked about healthy snacks. Well, this isn't really what I'd consider healthy, but it is GOOD! Have you ever tried "No Pudge" Brownies? They sell them at Trader Joe's, and they also have them in the regular grocery store here. Years ago, there was a woman in my then office who was a big WW fan. She used to make those brownies every week, and have one a night, warmed with vanilla frozen yogurt. The whole thing was 4 pts under the old system. Not sure what it is now. What a treat! Oh, and you can microwave the brownies!! That was how I used to make them, and it worked out really well because it was automatic portion control!!

StepCutGirl, Thanks for sharing what you eat. Sounds like you have it down to a very manageable system. Thanks for commenting on the Lexapro too. That's actually what I take, too. I asked my dr about it, and he continues to say that among the SSRIs, Lexapro is weight-neutral. Who knows though? Hope you're doing well this week!

Dreamer, Congrats on being 3 lbs lighter! That's awesome! Thanks for all of the tips on how to make the data entry of WW easier. I think we may be a bit odd in that we buy so many different kinds of bread. Haha. Seriously. It's crazy. I've never added tofu to pasta sauce, but am going to try it next time we have pasta. I often use fake meat crumbles (morningstar farms is my favorite), but sometimes just sauce, which I think leaves me wanting more. Well, hope you're having another successful week.

Weigh in day for me and it was not good, but expected. Up 1.8lbs. I joined the gym 2 weeks ago, went 5 days the first week and once this past week. I've been sick and not tracking and eating whatever I wanted. I'm still sick but going to try harder to track this week and get back to the gym when I'm feeling better.

Hope everyone else has a good week!

MY FIRST Week I lost 4.2 lbs :D :D :appl:
I am loving free fruit and veggies!!! Oh there are these lentils with beans at Costco (no preservatives in them, woot) for about 8 pts! Trader Joes has a low fat cheese stick for 1 pt and the cheddar is 2 pts. Just letting you know if you need a snack option (not the lentils but the cheese). I also eat 1 cup of Irish Oats for breakfast for 7 pts. I am loving the new system!!! woot!

SC, you will lose; keep up the great work. You lost a good amount so far!!!

DD, yay for 3 lbs, that is awesome!

LV, those brownies are 3 pts. I looked them up; I made them once and they were pretty good, thanks!
