Great job!!

I had my weigh in today and lost 3.2! I got my first 5 lb sticker. Not sure what to do with it, I just put it in my tracker. It's a nice little reminder to keep me on track though.

Hope you all have a great day!

Thank you Rotay! Oh and I understand what you mean about holidays. It was so hard not to give in yesterday, but I knew I would have to weigh in this morning. I also have my son's birthday on Sunday and we will be celebrating over the weekend with family. It's nice knowing I have my weekly points as coverage. I'm going to plan ahead and make sure I know how much cake I can have...haha.

Hi everyone, thanks for your advice. I am probably going to sign up and just try to not eat as much carbs. I generally don't like tons of pasta or bread anyway, but it would be much better to not super penalize myself in case I have to have a sandwich.

I think that you hit the nail on the head here....you can tweak your plan sometimes GUILT-FREE.

Good luck. I don't think that you will go wrong by signing up, at least you will find out if this is or is not the plan for you.

I have a question for you LC'ers doing WW. Atkins/LC wants you to eat full fat dairy/cheese, but ww pushes for reduced fat and fat free. What do you eat?

I don't like cheese, so no problem there. I eat full fat or light mayo (hellmans), full fat ranch dressing, light or full fat butter.

Thanks Beachmom & Rotay! I'm down another lb. I skipped last week so that was really for two weeks. The past two weeks were a struggle. After my WI's I always mentally start over and this week I really need that. I know I'll have more tough weeks but I'm glad it's over for now. I feel ready to forge ahead! My birthday is in a little over a month and I'd like to lose another 5 lbs. by then. I think that's doable

I've decided to give up on WW It was fun and different, but I think ultimately it kept leading me back to the realization that I have to track. Truth be told, when I had the most success with Atkins, I was tracking everything that went into my mouth. I'm going back to that because I know it worked before. I wish you all much success!

What version of WW were you on that you did not track?

For me I find with WW I actually track what I am eating. On Atkins I did not, and I think that is what got me into trouble.

Oh boy....I failed... I went on a little vacation and things started so good - then tell apart - not as bad as I could have been but not good either. Then, came home to find a storm hit our area and we had 3 days without power (yikes - it was almost 100 every day too). So, good time to clean out the freezer/refrigerator (everything is gone now - what a pain). And...more bad eating since we went out every meal. Now, I'm going on another little trip starting tomorrow and I'll be back Thursday some time. I sure hope I can get back on track. So, I didn't track the entire time -- that's my problem -- everything bad happens when I don't track. For me - it keeps me honest. So...I'll be back on Thursday.

Stay strong everyone -- I'll be back and I'll be committed.

Well I am just totally sick at myself. Been off plan since the 4th. Feeling, fat and disgusted. I can't seem to get it back together. Also found out that a friend was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I believe that she is only 42. Feeling really bummed out right now. Sorry to be such a downer. I will conquer this!

Oh boy----I'm with you. I leave in a few hours for another few days away. I got on the scale this morning thinking it wouldn't show a gain - in my mind I deserved to eat the carbs(pasta/ice cream/cocktails) -- boy - boy - was I wrong. In a little over a week I gained almost 2 lbs. Know wonder I was feeling bloated and disgusting - I didn't feel this way when I was eating right. How come it takes so long to lose it but it's so fast to come back? I wish I had that magic answer. So....no more excuses - I have been doing so good - I have to do this!!!! So...I hope to make some good choices and starting Thursday I'm totally back to strick plan and exercise. I have to weigh-in next Thursday and I don't want them to see my gain. I'm so close to goal...

So sorry to hear about your friend. I lost a good friend in May with cancer (he was 47 with 3 small kids). It's so sad but it helped me realize that I needed to get into shape and take care of myself. You can't predict cancer but you can take control over your weight/health. Come on - you can do tihs!!!

Hi I'm new!

I am on the WW points. I have 27 points per day! What is the average weight loss with this program? I have lost 3lbs in my first week. I hope to continue because I have 40lbs to lose in 7 months. (my wedding/honeymoon) I need all the help i can get!

I'm excited to have found you all!

I guess I worded that poorly. The tracking in WW reaffirmed for me the need to track in lc. In my last few attempts with lc (prior to starting WW) I thought I knew what to do and didn't see the need to track like I did when I had huge success with it. So now, I'm back to lc and tracking every carb.

ok, why is it whenever I am doing LC, I want to do WW, and whenever I am doing WW, I want to do LC? Is it that I want my weight loss and carbs too? Is it just the idea of not being allowed to have something? Such a mind thing.

Ok, who is kidding who? (m)? I just want to be able to eat and drink whatever, whenever and still be skinny. Is that too much to wish for? Sorry, just being a smart a$$.

Welcome - glad you found us. I have 26 pts - I started out without doing any exercise and now I've added that in. I think 40 lbs is totally doable in 7 months. Just track - keep carbs lower - eat 0 pt fruits/veggies/soups. You'll be fine and we can help with any questions.

Good Morning! I would like to be a part of this group.
Lisa - I also do WW but I follow the SFT (Simply Filling Technique) where you just eat the foods on the Power List. Its more of a WW combined with Low Carbs and just a healthy way of eating. You can print the list on the website or google Simply Filling Technique. You change your set up on your food tracker to SFT so you only track the foods that are Non Power Foods. You use your weekly points for non power foods but I try to not use them at all. You can also use your activity points. They also have a group SFT where I can get ideas. Hope this helps. I like it.

Welcome lharris! I do PP+WW but think when I get to goal, wherever/whenever that is, I'll switch to simply filling. Although I do have the tendencies to overeat! ha! We'll see if I can maintain doing SF, if not, I'll track for life if I have to to stay thin.

Great job Penny!

I wasn't very good this weekend. I ate all my weeklies and then some My weigh in is on Thursday morning, so hopefully it won't have affected me too much. I've learned my lesson though!

I have been really curious about SFT as well, I'll have to look more into it.

I don't know what I did special this week, but I am down 4 lbs since last Monday.


I too don't think I could do SFT. I overeat as well. That is why LC didn't work for me. I ate the LC stuff, but I ate too much of it and did not drop the weight. With WW while I can eat what I want, it forces me to limit it based upon the points I get.

It's Tuesday - everyone is rather quiet on the board lately? How is everyone doing? Hope everyone is staying on plan. I'm back from vacations and over-eating and I'm recommitted. Not sure what will happen on the scale on Thursday but it is what is it. Moving forward.

For some reason - thinking about dinner already this morning. Need to think of something low carb and low points. Since I lost everything in my freezer/refrigerator (due to the power outage) I may need to go to the store after work. Any new recipes that you have tried?

Hope everyone has a great day....
