Craig in Indy
Welcome to the playground Terry!! You will find support and encouragement from each of us as we work at losing a few pounds and get healthier!! I agree with CraigB, if you aren't happy with your current meeting and/or leader, check our some other meetings in your area. I originally did WW 10 years ago and I lost about 40 pounds back then and I became a lifetime member. The leader I had at the time was the best one in the area. She led meetings at several different locations in the area and each of her meetings were completely full. Because of the lessons I learned 10 years ago, but I haven't completely applied, I am doing the WW program entirely online. There is something motivating about having to attend a meeting each week and being accountable for the number displayed on the scale.
imac: Congrats on this week's weight loss!!! Keep up the great work!!
I weighed in this morning and I am up .8. I'm really not sure what happened this week. I had strep about 10 days ago and I finished my antibiotics last night. I had a couple of my "weekly" points each night, which is an attempt on my part to make sure I get in my daily points. Oh well, the number is what it is this morning and all I can do is continue on the WW path and do more exercising this week!!!
Best of luck to all of you this week. I look forward to checking this forum each day and get caught up on the progress each of us are making!!
Had my WI tonight. Not a good situation. Gained 1.6 pounds and now 300.6 Dammit!
I am one of those people who needs to figure it out and WW makes it easy. I just look back and see what I did. I ate Primos a couple of times. Love that place. Think I went a little bread crazy. Also chocolate too. I know where I went wrong. Can only learn from there. But still pissed about the 1.6 gain. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.....
And I am traveling all week too next week. History proves I have not made the best choices. I will this time
any updates with anyone?

It's darn easy to get frustrated. I know I do. I seem to break through to a new lower weight level then just get stuck there for weeks. I can't seem to find a steady weight loss week in and week out.
I am positive I work out no less than 5 days a week, and I mean serious workouts each time where I burn 800-1200 c.
Some days I want to go back to pizza lol
I weighed in this morning (I have changed my weigh-in day from Tuesday morning to Friday morning) and I am down 2.1 lbs since Tuesday. I have lost a total of 26.5 since 1/3/12 and I am a couple of pounds away from my 10%.
Tractor - Good luck with your weigh-in tomorrow morning. Please post your results!
This upcoming week is really going to be rough. I leave on Sunday and get back on Thursday for a business trip to Arizona. I am really nervous. Going with some chefs from my work and history proves that I suck at making the right food choices when traveling. It's hard enough when I am NOT traveling but throw that in along with traveling with other chefs, I am screwed. Hopefully this time will be better.
Official Weigh-In Day! This week I lost 3 pounds, for a total of 16 pounds lost over a 9 week period since I started on WW. That's an average of 1.78 pounds per week which is right on schedule. The program is working very well for me and my wife. At this rate I will hit my goal of 210 pounds in about 27 more weeks (6 months). It seems like a long time, but when you're changing your life it's really not that long of a commitment to keep. This week I have lost 1/4 of the amount I need to lose, so it's a milestone day!
I do not wear a lot of jeans or pants since I work in the kitchen but when I travel I wear a lot of dress pants. In Dec, I bought a pair that were 58 in waist. I am traveling this next week and decided to try those on. They were sooo big. Now I fit into size 50 which are still a little big but will work for my travel next week.
I feel great about this since last week was a 1.6 gain.

Just trying to figure out what's a reasonable goal weight?
Chef, can try and get the wife to snap one...honestly I have always shied away from pics.
I just got into 38 waist jeans if that tells you anything. I am loosing weight from the extremities in. The lower sections of my legs and almost all my arms have skinnied up. The section from the chest to my knees still needs lots of work.
I don't seem to lose much at all there (which pisses me off)
Tractor, I'm 47, so I hear you about past experience. I suppose my skinniest adult size was down in the 190 range and I wore a 34 jean. Everyone told me I was too skinny, so maybe I will shoot for 210 or so
I am traveling to Arizona this week and have my WI tonight. Excited to go see a meeting out here.
Talked with my wife last night and she had her WI and lost 5.2 pounds. She is so close on losing 20% of her body weight. Wow.
Lose 3.2 this week at weight in! 5 pounds away from my 10%!
I was down .4 this week. Allergies have been kickin my back side for the last 4 or 5 days, so I haven't been on the bike in a bit. I'm hoping to get a ride in tonight.
Congrats to Mrs. Chef on the 5.2!
...and to Rock for the 3.2!
Good luck tonight, Chef!
