I am on my 3rd week of WW and another diet program along with a personal trainer. I need to lose 10 pounds for my clothing to fit in just 43 days. I am working very hard at it. Last summer I lost 30lbs, then gained 20 of it back. I was on Jenny and WW and did well, life got busy and I got lazy with my diet.

My 6 week goal is to lose 10 lbs (I do not want to buy bigger new clothing).
My fittness goal is 250 miles (5 miles a day no excuses) 190 miles to go.
Train 3x per week (my trainer is evil btw)

Thanks for the inspiration,

That is alot of training/exercise!!!
I just got back in the gym Thursday. I've been out for several months. I started with one hour on the elliptical (my trainer told me too) and friday I ran/walked at the park with some friends. I'm soar as all get out but ready to go back tomorrow

Default Back on the Wagon

I got back on WW a month ago. I noticed that my weight was going up. So far I have lost 12.6 pounds! I changed my weigh in days to Monday so I am less likely to splurge on the weekends. So far, that has worked out well. I am also exercising this time...no more sedentary life for me. My goal is 30 minutes on the elliptical 5x's per week. My goal for the cruise in November is to be at 190...only 26.2 pounds to hit that goal.

Good Morning and Happy Easter ALL,

I have been absent here a couple of weeks, it has been challenging, I always go over my points and one week I lose .4 the next week 1 or 2 lbs. I have learned to look at my loss on a monthly graph which averages out everything and always see nice progress. Congrats to all the weight loss to everyone!

I did WI this morning and had a 2.8lb loss so that puts me at 18.8lbs or 74 sticks of butter!

I have 5.7lbs to go until my 10%. It's about 50 days till I cruise and I was wanting to lose 20lb by then so I think I should be able to see that goal come true.

I went to the local market yesterday and bought lot's of fresh veggies and fruit. Great weather here in FL so that makes it easy to get out and get moving.

Have a great week everyone! BELIEVE!

No WI for me today... No meeting because of the Easter holiday :/

I'm so close to goal, and missing my WI because there is no mtg is just killing me! Plan is to pop in to Wednesday morning mtg just for the WI, then changing on the fly and heading straight to work

We'll see how that goes

Welcome to the newcomers, congrats to the losers, and "Good Luck" to everyone!

Annette~

Down another .6. We are beginning our drive back to Canada this week. Then I will have to see if there is a WW meeting close to home, or will I have to do this solely online. I must be much better about tracking and watching my intake. Also I can use my treadmill at home. I am getting more and more determined to drop another 10 to 20 pounds.

Ciao,
Nikki

Happy Monday! I had an OP weekend and was thankful for that even with tempting foods in front of me.

Lisa-Congrats on your 12.6 lbs loss thus far. That is awesome!

Keystonemamma and Nikki-Congrats on your WL!

Today is treadmill and still on the 4th week of C25K program. Just love that I am actually jogging. Something I thought I would never do but found that I am actually enjoying it.

I confess, I ate not only all my daily points for yesterday, but all my weekly ones as well. I have recomitted to being a "good girl", at least until weigh in on Thursday. And I am actually going to exercise this week, I promise.

(holding my breath until Thursday!)

Hey everyone! Yesterday was a hard day. Was exhausted due to lack of sleep. LO was sick and stayed up all night. So no AP yesterday and didn't eat OP. Today is a new day and looking forward to getting in my workout. LO is feeling much better so all is well in my world.

Congrats to all that have lost this week!

Wednesday morning WI (in place of Easter Sunday), down .8 pounds. Just .4# (read: point four pounds ) from goal!

Heck, I coulda removed my underwear and dropped .4 pounds!

53# gone! And literally three quarters the person I was on August 1st! (25.3% gone, to be precise!)

It's all good! Maybe next week!!!

Default What can i do

I havn't taking up any movement AKA EXERCISE. I have artritis in my feet and hurt. I am hoping the weight loss will help. if I over dose on advil I feel better. I also work full time and take care of my 2 grandson ages 3 months and 3 yrs, every night M-F. So needless to say I have no time to myself. I also bake cake and cookies. I get orders from people from work and church. I have not eaten any in 6 weeks though.
