I think I'm logging it all, at least I'm trying to. Sometimes I have difficulty determining the right points for a particular meal. As far as the activity points, yes, part of what was so frustrating is that I rode over 150 miles last week. Not very fast but 35-40 miles on each of 4 different days Everybody in my riding group is recovering from some kind of ailment so our rides that normally avg 17+mph are only avg 13-14mph lately. I stayed within the allowed points (I used a few points from the weekly allowance and none of the activity points) I just dropped more than I expected the first week and none the second week and I was a little disappointed

Hi folks, I'm under 200 now for the first time in years. I've been on Weight Watchers since last April and I've lost about 65 lbs so far. Keep at it, It is working out for me!

I am doing the online deal. It was 3 months for 56 bones. So far it has been suprisingly easy. just make sure you add your points up..
I am riding my motorcycle to the LBS today to do some try outs on a few bikes... Bonus is coming in a few weeks. Last 4 days I have done 35 to 45 min on the staionary...
I told my wife if I loose 90lbs I get to buy the motorcycle of my choice..I am under 250 for the first time in awhile.

Dropped 1.6lbs this week, not great but better than holding the same so I'm down 7.6lbs for 3 weeks. That's encouraging. Hopefully I'm getting into the program now and can continue towards my goals

good job redc. Thats above the average. My wife this week lost only .2 but she does not do any exercise.

I am at 312. I am looking forward to seeing the 2 and not the three within a month give or take I hope. I rode 138 miles just last week so I hope the weigh in shows it

If you don't mind, I would like to join your Weight Watcher conversation.

Here is a little bit about my experience with Weight Watchers...I joined in January 2002 at 248 lbs and I set a goal weight of 210 lbs. I achieved my goal weight several months later and I become a life-time member. I think my lowest weight was about 205. As life and luck would have it, I gained all the weight back and then some, and I have rejoined WW a couple of times since then. I joined again (online only) in January 2012 at 283 lbs. As of yesterday's weigh-in, I have lost 18.6 lbs!! I look forward to the coming weeks and months as I continue to lose weight and physically feel better.

Thank you for reading my story...Best of luck to all!!

curt: Welcome my friend.

Question: Do you think perhaps going to the meetings might help? I find it a good thing for myself. Also, what didnt work for you last time?

Had my weigh in last night. Lost 2 pounds for a total of 25 pounds lost. I am happy about the loss but... I rode 130 plus miles just last week and feel like the loss didnt match up with the activity. GRRRRRRR.

Still happy though!
