Nikki hoping everything is going OK, I remember the big snowstorm back here in 1996 that dropped like 42 inches of snow, trucks couldnt get to the stores and everything was bare for days very eerie feeling and scary, I am praying you will be safe!

Thanks girl!

When I look at my before picture it makes me want to cry. I was so unhappy back then. I hate that I wasted so many years like that. But I am so thankful that along this weight loss journey I have found me again!

I swear - I keep coming back and looking at your pictures. I had started WW and don't remember why I fell off......I do remember losing weight. But because you inspire me so much I have a few questions for you:

Do you go to meetings or do you do it online or totally on your own?
Do you ever mess up and how do you motivate yourself to start again (other than the amazing success you have had)?
Do you eat all your points and weeklies? Exercise points?

Okay. I'm done. Sorry to be so nosy. Your success is just brilliant. I feel like I'm walking a circle around you, in awe. Kind of want to poke you with a stick to see if you are real. But I won't. HAHAHA!

And ultimately I know that sticking to any plan is probably a HUGE factor in succeeding. Just can't quite get there.

Good morning ladies.

It's weigh in day again, the scale was up 1.8 lbs 182.6. I did go off track one day during Hurricane Isaac. I ate and ate that day. I ate so much I felt sick that night. I ate partly do to stress and also of boredom from being stuck in the house all day with food everywhere. Oh well I'm not going to worry about. The weight will be gone this week.

It's Sept and I want to set some goals. My goals will be to work at lease 3 days a week. I also want start posting what I eat here maybe it will be helpful to others who are trying WW. I still want to lose about 25 more lbs and I would love to be at my goal weight by Christmas!

Yesterdays menu
- apple cinnamon oatmeal 3 pp
- ham and cheese lean pocket and baked cheetos 10 pp
- banana 0 pp
- yogurt 2 PP
- chicken soft taco 10 pp
- 1 Reese cup 3 pp
= 28 pp for the day (I get 29 pp a day)

I got up early this morning and we went to the gym as a family. I did 35 mins on the elliptical and then some ab work.

And ultimately I know that sticking to any plan is probably a HUGE factor in succeeding. Just can't quite get there.
For the first month I went to the meetings, I bought everything I needed and then started doing it on my own at home. I ended up joining WW online for about 6 months but then I canceled that because I'm not at a computer all day I would just rather write down what I eat in my food journal. So I cancled my membership.

I do mess up once in a while. During Hurricane Isaac I lost control of my eating but only for one day. Back when I was bigger I don't know what kept me going other then just being determined to get the weight off. But now what I do is I look at my before pic and my now pics. I say to myself no way in H E double hockey sticks am I going back! I have worked too hard to get this weight off. Whatever I want to eat is not worth it, taking away the happiness I have now, it's so not worth it!!

I don't eat my extra weekly points or my exercise points. I tried that and the scale stopped moving.

I hope this helps you some. You can do it too!

Amber, I would love to try for the WW add thing. They are running a contest right now for that. I wanted to apply but I canceled my online membership a couple of months ago and you have to be either a meeting member on online member to enter.
