Hello everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful week-end. Alrighty, so how was everyone's weight this morning???? I hope we all had a successful week. I'll start out by giving my results. I lost 2.2 pounds for my second week of dieting.
10/01 weight was 164.2
10/8 weight was 160.2
10/15 today 158.0
I'm glad that I am now at 2 weeks of dieting. I'm more apt to stick with it now. I'm slowly returning to my walking but the knee is still acting up. Just makes it more of a challenge, but that's alright, I like a good challenge. OK, come on guys, let's hear how ya did.

I am really pissed. Somehow between Saturday and this morning I managed to pick up an extra 3.5 pounds. WTF??? That's what , 11,000 extra calories that I would've consumed? No way. I know it's water weight, but I am still highly aggravated. Tonight I went to the gym, did spin class then ran 2 miles for a total of 10 activity points for the day. I had a bagel for breakfast, some hummus and pretzels for lunch, and salad w/ vinegar and a LC for dinner. The LC has 24% of my day's sodium. UGGGG.

Starting weight 142.5
Last week: 133.5 I earned 28 AP for last week.
This week: 137

OUCH icon_surprised.gif I know you must have been upset. It's always a bummer when that happens. I'm sure that it was just fluid retention but I know how upsetting that can be. Did you weigh this morning? Just wondering if it went back down.

Does anyone know why this site makes double posts sometimes? I never have that problem anywhere else. Just wondering.

Butternut-I feel better today, and it did go down. Thank goodness! I knew that I hadn't eaten that many extra calories! So in the end, I didn't lose, but didn't gain, so that is a good thing.

Have any of you ever considered doing any races or triathlons? On WW's site today, someone mentioned Iron Girl races, they are supposed to be a lot of fun. I've never done one, and would really need to train, but I am considering trying to do one next summer.

I think I'm doing OK this week - I "offically" weigh in tommorrow but I have upped my walking and cut my consumsion of sweets - I think I've said it before - but I just do not believe in depriving my sweet tooth. I need some little thing each day...just not the whole candy dish!

I've gotta have sweets, too. I just threw away 6-8 cupcakes last night b/c everyone around here is tired of baked goods except for me. This is a very bad time of year for me, with all of the Halloween candy around. Last year I was working, and having an unpleasant time, and ate all of our candy because I was upset, then had to run out that afternoon and buy more. Not this year. 1 pkg m&m's=1 hour running at 6mph. Not worth it!

well, the site is finally up and running...I was having problems with it earlier in the week but it seems to be OK for now icon_smile.gif

I didn't lose any weight last week. I knew I wouldn't though. I was feeling really lazy all week. I think it was the weather...it's been rain rain raining consantly. It's raining today but I'm feeling a bit chipper this morning though, already got some clothes in the wash and started cleaning the bathroom before taking my son to school and it's only 9am icon_smile.gif

Well, a combination of me being away from the computer and the site not being prevented me from posting my stats. I was pretty happy. I lost 1.8.

Starting weight: 165.8
Week 1: 165.8
Week 2: 164.0

Now I just got to stick with it.

Wonderful!! You're doing great. If I can do it, you can do it. We just have to keep that will power and determination. I'm on a 1200 calorie a day diet and honestly, I do miss my snacking but I'm not hungry at all. With exercising and cutting back on calories I should be able to lose about 1 1/2 lbs a week. I'd love to lose more but can't do anymore exercising than what I am right now with a bum knee. But, I'll make it. You will too!!! thumbs_up.gif

I just found a really good snack. Fiber One Chewy Bars. They have 140 calories, 35% of your daily fiber=2 points WW value. They are actually good, and keep you full for a long time.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm always looking for a good snack that's healthy. Gotta check that out. Hey, just wondering, are you guys getting notified of a reply on a thread that you are watching? I haven't been notified all day. I'm thinking that it's just because they are doing work on the site?

Haven't noticed, I never have it notify me when replies are posted.

I'm pretty proud of myself today. I stayed on plan and earned 10 activity points today to boot. I did have a LC panini for lunch, so I will probably retain water like crazy, so I'm not going to weigh tomorrow.

I've seen those pannini's advertised. Are they good?????

I just weighed again today and lost another pound and a half so either I lost all that in just a few days or I was retaining water earlier in the week. I think it was the water, honestly. Anyway, that makes me feel a little bit better. Only another 2.5 lbs and I'll be at 10 lbs lost icon_biggrin.gif

I've been eating old-fashioned oatmeal for breakfast each morning. I think that is a big help. It doesn't have less calories but it is lower glycemic index carbs so it stays in your system longer and keeps you from getting hungry so fast. Last year, I went on a diet where all my carbs were low glycemic index and I lost like 10-15 lbs doing so...too bad I went off it icon_sad.gif Anyway, now that I'm feeling better (prozac), it's much easier to stay eating healthy thumbs_up.gif

Another tip if anyone loves mushrooms as much as I do. They take up quite a bit of space and are hardly any calories! They also do contain protein, not much since there's not much of anything, but they are a good filler icon_smile.gif I sometimes eat them straight from the can for a snack. 40 calories (If I remember correctly) for the can.

Yes, the panini are pretty good. I get the Chicken Club ones.

I just got one of those ticker things in my sig. It's nice to have it charted out for me like that...makes it more visual as a goal. This is a short-term goal for the end of the year and then I'll have another short-term goal for later on. I just want to keep shorter goals so it doesn't seem like such a long road...

Hi everyone! TGIF!

I feel really bloated and puffy around my midsection today. There's no way that I'm going to get on a scale. Oh, but I am liking my scale-it says I weigh 94 #. So, I'm off to Target to buy a new one today.

So my goal for this week re: Activity Points is 40. I'm already at 24. We'll see if I can do it.

blech! Yes, I know what you mean. I woke up today and I can't hardly move my wedding ring so I know I'm retaining water. My grandma had to share these chips with me that she bought...probably loaded with salt.

Can I have the scales that you are replacing? I'd love to see 94 pounds even if it's not correct icon_lol.gif
