  1. Ok, I have discovered pudding. It is fat free but it has calories and 1 gram of fiber. If I count the fiber it shows up as one point. If I dont count the fiber the value is two. Which one should I choose. I have been counting two to keep from underestimating. I found some light chips that is like this too. What would you do? Thanks Kay:bcb_cool2

  4. Hey! Sorry for the cheesy title but I couldnt think of anything else. I am looking to find a friend to share my WW experiences with and vice versa. I am a down to earth type of person and usually pretty up beat and positive(unless Im realy stressed). I have been using weight watchers for about 2 1/2 months now and so far lost 17lbs. I realy enjoy the program it has been a life style change for not only me but my family as well. Speaking of family I am happily married and have two children one is 21months and the other will be 6 in September. I am working on my minor in education and chemistry and majoring in Biology . I am realy bad at grammer so please dont laugh if I misspell anything..lol. Enough about me and more about you.. Buddy are you out there??

    CW. I just want to say Im sorry for being a drama queen. Theres alot going on and at the time I read it I took your responce as being negitive rather than taking it exactly as it was which was you trying to help me. Responding to others too quickly is a problem that I need to work on, expecially if I want to make friends. I will welcome any advice as long as it is offered. I will sign up for a meeting and see if it works out if I can convince my husband to let me. Thank you for being kind and offering great advice Sorry for being a drama queen...im human ( and a woman). Thank you every one for their advice on the ap's it has really helped. K

    Confused

    You know I would love that but I just dont have the money like I did when I did it 5 years ago.My husbands hours have been cut from his job and we just had to sell one of our cars to make it financially. Not to put any one through a guilt trip but I thought that this site was to get straight up advise and support from those who have done weight watchers or are still doing it. Your right in the way that meetings would help..but my question wasnt realy anwered and quite frankly CW it seems to me like you dont realy like my threads or me which ever(not that you know me). You know I have tried to be active on this this website and i have gotten some realy good advice from some great people. and I thought that is what the sight was for. I wolnt ask for advice again if Its going to be a problem, CW. Just wanted a coupple of thoughts and opinons and a little support and maybe to gain a friend or two.

    Confused

    Im recieving diffrent information about earing activity points from a few ladies that I met. One said that the activity points can be used on the day that you earn them but inorder to use those activity points you have to have used your entire 35 flex points.. so if exersize five days out of the week and I dont use all of my flex points then I dont eat my activity points I just keep eating out of my wpa's??? The other lady said that I could use my flex points and my activity points in the same day I just have to split my wpa's up by each day of the week (5 for each day) and eat those plus my activity points. Both of these sound funny to me.. I just dont know which one to do. I want to eat enough to make sure I keep my body's metabolism going but I dont want to over eat to slow my weight loss down. Right now Im earning 7 ap's a day but I only eat 5 and only if Im still hungry after that will I dip into my wpa's but Im usually not. I am only loosing 1.5 to 2lbs a week. Any ideas on what these two ladies had to say?? Which one am I suppose to be doing???:bcb_salutThanks in advance
  8. I had trouble with this too. If I feelt like I realy wanted to use the weekly point alowances then I would split them up 5 for each day of the week. Try to convince your self the weekend isnt special and make saturday and sunday your begining of the week I wasnt using my ap's on the days I worked out and I stayed the same weight for 2 weeks then I started adding them in and I started dropping the weight. Good luck
  9. LoL...yea I do at least 1 hr 30 min and then I do a 30 min stretch vido. I have two kids one is 22months and the other will be 6 in september. I am allso going to school full time. You know I changed from sitting in front of the tv for a coupple hours at night to working out. Its something I have realy come to love it puts me in a better mood , i get time away from kids..husband..homework..so on and so on. Your right I need a good schedule. I guess I just feel bad because I know there are some out there that work , go to school, take care of kids and find time to work out. I want to be able to do that, gosh darnit..I guess you cant have it all..thanks for the advice
  10. LoL..I understand. I have been inviting a few that seem to have been replying to my post. Thanks for the reply though. :)

    Ankles

    Well I just bought brand new Newbalance cross training shoes. I will use some inserts and see how that works. Thanks for the advice:bcb_grin
  12. I only worked out for 3 days this past week. I had finals. Im having a realy hard time managing my time lately. I should be able to get in those two hours during the day for exersize. Theres no excuse. How does every one else do it and still get important things done? My body feels grose for not working out like I should have. I am ready to get back on the go..and the gym is closed on weekends... My neighbors giggle at me when I go jogging around the neighborhood and there is no room to exersize in my cluttered house..or maybe im just making excuses. For the last four weeks the gym has been my sanctuary. CANT WAIT UNTILL MONDAY K

    Ankles

    So I have been doing my exersize program for about 4 weeks now. The last time I worked out during cardio my ankles hurt really bad and then my knees started to hurt. I mean to the point I had to stop exersizing for the day. Any Ideas? Thanks In Advance
  14. Thank you for sharing that with us ! Your succsess brought tears to my eyes, because it shows me that it realy can be done and its not impossible. You look so
  15. Hey ! I am new here too. I have been here for about a week now and I love it. You will find alot of support and wisdom here. Congrats on your 8lbs and keep up the good work.
  16. LOL! Im sorry I guess thats the truth about the fiber bars I didnt think about it though. If you choose to eat them it is detramental that you drink water to avoid cramping. They are a yummy way to cleanse though.
  17. Yea, I totally agree about the water thing. What I noticed in my first week was i felt totally nasty because I had been eating so much funk in the past. Your body will cleanse its self if you stick to your points and drink lots of water. I would recomend definately eating high fiber foods to flush your system out that will make you feel a little lighter. As far as the sweets thing goes there are tons of awesome 1 and 2 pointer snacks that you can take with you to work. Weight Watchers makes these little one pointer chocolate cakes that have a little frosting on top they are really good and it definately takes the craving away. I use to take sugar free jello with me its only 10 calories and it kind of acts as a filler if you are super hungry. Fiber One makes these bars that taste like a candy bar and they have 9 grams of fiber in them they have diffrent flavors like,apple,chocolate,and peanutbutter they are a good source of carbohydrates to give you a boost of energy and fill you up they are 2 pts per a bar. Hang in there I know its tough but you will see a diffrence soon I promise its worth it.
  18. Wow. You all have been realy helpful. I appreciate all of the good advice. I will take it and let you know how it works. Happy Monday Every One

    The 35 extra

    Thanks for the welcome ! Can you help me figure out how much activity Im suppose to be eating. My daily pa is 26 On the days I work out I do 45 min cardio and 45 min weights. My heart monitor tells me I burn 600-700 cals during that time. Is this high, moderate or low intensity? How do I figure out my allowance points the right way. Thank you
  21. Hi, I am new to Health Discovery. I am looking for support and hoping to give some too. Please see below for all my stats. I am currently on the Flex Plan. My points allowance is 26 . I have a regular exersize routine. 5 days a week; 45 min card,45 min weights burn about 600-700 cal aday. I am using all of my 35 flex points during the week and adding two extra points on the days I work out. For the last two weeks my weight hasnt budged. Do I need to stop using the 35 flex? Thanks for you help
  22. Hi ! I just joined Health Discovery and I look forward to sharing the weight loss journey with others like me. I wanted to make this my home group because I have a regular exersize routine now. See below for my begining dates and my stats. I have been on ww for about 6 weeks now I have been exersizing 5 days a week 45 min cardio and 45 min weights, since about three weeks ago. I love it it makes me feel so good. The only problem is the first week I lost. Now week two and week three going on week four I have stayed at the exact same weight. Is this because I am using all of my 35 flex points during the week. On the days I work out I add 2 extra activity points. Can any one help me with this? I realy look forward to hearing your thoughts and opinions. Thank you K Start Date and Weight : 02/17/09 @ 226 CW: 214 GW: 160 Total loss 12lbs
