  1. Good for you, Tish! I'm sure your clothes are looser and you have more energy! Keep on keeping on - you got this.
  2. Losing weight has definitely changed the way I dress. Now I have COLOR in my wardrobe and I can wear cute t-shirts without having to have a cardigan over the top to hide my back fat. I am wearing shorts. I don't know that my daughter, who is 11, had ever seen me in a pair of shorts until last summer. I can put on a swimming suit and walk to the pool without having to be wrapped up in a towel, sprinting to the water hoping no one looks! I now have 2 dresses in my closet - I never, ever wore dresses when I was heavier. Thinner clothes are much, much better than fat clothes! Trudie - you are looking good!
  3. Bubbles - I think a 6lb loss is awesome! There are so many factors that come into play when it comes to weight loss. The best advice I can give to you is to NOT compare yourself with anyone else. Make this your personal journey and do the best you can do with what you have going on in your life. I don't know how much you have to lose, but just another way of looking at this is this: If you keep up this pace, by end of summer you'll be down 30lbs!!! I'm sure that will feel great. Just keep it up and don't quit! There are a lot of people who weight every day and that works for them. I am not one of them because it's such a head game and leaves me feeling more discouraged than motivated. If you're one of those who expects to see a loss every single morning, then maybe consider only weighing once a week or twice a week. I think that might help keep you focused and be more excited about the losses you do see. Just a suggestion. Come here and get involved with some of the groups - this site has kept me so motivated and on track and there are really helpful, friendly people here. Good luck to you!
  4. Wow - you're looking great! Keep it up. You can keep it off this time if you put your mind to it. Great job!
  5. Hey, Jen. I'm a salt person so I like to do veggies and hummus for a snack. String cheese is also a good snack or half of a luna bar or other protein bar. Those are easy to take with you and pretty filling. It's great that you're thinking ahead and packing something to eat. Planning is SO key to your success! I know that if I don't plan and just go with the flow, I always eat more than I want to or intended to.
  6. Welcome back to BCB, Roseann! Good for you for getting back on the wagon and starting up your journey again. You can do it and it looks like you're off to a great start!
  7. Hey Carol - welcome! I started WW in March of 2011 and started posting on this website at the same time. I can say without a doubt that I wouldn't have gotten to goal without the support and cheering from the people here. Take a look at the BCB Buddy groups and think about joining in on the conversation on one or many of those. It helps to post often so that we can all get to know you. I post regularly on the "Delta Force" thread in case you want to check it out. All the groups are great, though. You are rockin the weight loss! Congrats on your progress so far! Keep attending meetings but come here too.
  8. It's funny you posted about this because I've been thinking about how I sit in front of a computer all day, 8 hours a day and that fact was really depressing me. So, I just got myself a giant medicine ball for sitting on to improve my posture and so I have to put a little effort into sitting. I'm sitting on it for 1/2 the day and try to sit a little longer each day... It's amazing how it's not so relaxing to sit on those balls. Looks simple but you really do have to focus on not falling over. ha! I'm on the 3rd floor of my building so I always take the stairs so that does help my "sitting all day guilt". No TV for me - too much to get done at night!
  9. Yay to all of you who got up and worked out! I went for a 5 mile run and felt sooooo gooooood when it was done. Thanks for encouraging all of us, Trudie! Have a wonderful day with your families.
  10. I did exercise today! Went to my Tuesday/Thursday interval class and really pushed myself. I had a lot of energy this morning so it felt good to work really hard. If I'm there, I may as well work at it, right? Moe - You are a fast runner! That is quite the pace so good for you!
  11. I am IN! I actually found a 5K race that starts at 8am on Thanksgiving so I may do that or I may just go run on my own. I haven't decided yet. On Thanksgiving I will: 1. Run at least 5K 2. Stay OP and allow myself 10 wpas 3. Stay focused on spending time with my family and enjoying their company instead of focusing on the food.
  12. You know, the 10K is definitely harder but it really wasn't that bad at all. It wasn't difficult for me to transition because by the time I got my Nike Plus device which told me how far I was going, I was running 5 miles and I didn't even know it! So sometimes knowledge is a bad thing because then you psych yourself out. So once I knew I was running 5 miles I knew I could do another 1.2 miles to make it 10K. If you just start increasing your distance little by little, before you know it, you'll be there. That is what I did.. each time I'd just go another 5 or 10 minutes and pretty soon there I was. I started running consistently in May of this year so I haven't been at it very long either. I know you can do it - you just need push yourself a little further each time.
  13. Thanks for the messages on my blog posts! It's nice to see that others can resonate with these feelings and experiences!

  14. Hey Superbowl, hope you have a great race! Only other advice I'd give is to warm up and stretch, stretch, stretch because it's so cool outside. I ran in a race last weekend and there were a few pulled hamstring injuries because people didn't warm up beforehand. I just started running really in the spring and I've done 3 5K races and a 10K and they're so much fun! Something motivating about being out there with all those other people.
  15. In your Points Plus pocket guide, alcohol is in there alphabetically. Light beer is 3 points, 4 points for a regular beer (12 oz). Most hard alcohol is 4 points for 1.5 oz and that doesn't include what you're mixing it with. 4 oz wine is 4 points. Wow, I know way too much about this! Ha! Hope this helps and cheers!
