  1. C25K = Couch to five kilometer (walk/run) I keep hearing it's a good program, but when I search I find an information overload and multiple websites. Will someone link the Official C25K please? Or an unofficial one if it's better. Thanks.
  2. Turn Around, that's it! Thanks Cricket. I can't seem to find my old books anywhere. Thanks to you too CL.
  3. Does anyone have a link to the old Flex Plan? (circa 2005ish) I know there were several threads about it a few years ago, but it's hard to find them since the search is still broken. Anyone have something bookmarked?
  4. No specific reason... Just good to re-read it occasionally. Pretty powerful stuff there.
  5. Do yourself a favor... take a moment to read over this again. No, don't assume you know it... REALLY read it! Because sometimes we all just need a reminder. ====================================== Bootcamp Buddies Philosophy Statement Bootcamp Buddies (referred to as BCBs) follow the Weight Watchers program and Weight Watchers ONLY. They don't combine Weight Watchers with any other programs or "diet", unless instructed to modify it by a medical professional. A BCB realizes that this is a journey for LIFE..not a diet. As such, we follow the program as it has been written and plan on following it for the rest of our lives. But committing to this, we will make our weight loss for life a REALITY! A BCB handles their weight loss journey one minute, one hour, one day at a time (OMOHOD) and this is our basic philosophy. A BCB knows that THEY are in complete control of what goes into THEIR mouths. Happiness, sadness, stress, anger and other emotions do NOT control us. We take charge of ourselves, and are responsible for ourselves. We make a commitment to ourselves to journal each day, and WRITE EVERY BITE. A BCB does not ever DELIBERATELY go off program for ANY REASON. There are NO EXCUSES for ever going off program. We will face challenges each day of our life, and have to learn that stress or social situations are not reason to go off program. We as a BCB must always PLAN, PLAN, PLAN! If a BCB should "slip," they shall immediately take steps to understand what caused the slip and to rectify the situation. We shall use these "slips" as a learning process so that we may learn not to slip again. A BCB does not ever whine, cry, or complain about being off program, but jumps right back but on track! (not tomorrow, or later -but RIGHT AWAY). A member in good standing of the BCBs will ALWAYS treat others in the same manner they would like to be treated. If correcting an unhealthy behavior, such correction shall be done with compassion and respect. We are here to make our weight loss a REALITY and to help each other reach our goals with kind support, and sometime a little nudge with love & care. We look forward to seeing YOU make your weight loss a REALITY! From your Training Manual ====================================== Carry on.
  6. That is very true and I'm seeing differences. I used to stop in Bob Evans for breakfast and it was hard finding OP options. Now they have a "Fit from the Farm" menu. I even saw some Denny's "Fit-Fare" items pop up on the WW tracker the other day when I was searching. Remember to vote!
  7. Great post. I wasn't around here at the time it was made, so I'm bumping it back up in case others may have missed it too.
  8. Cool, I was asking about healthy drive-thru ideas for breakfast. I wish all restaurants had a WW option. I hope it's something tasty for 6.5 pts because I can get a breakfast burrito for 7! Eat up New Zealand... maybe they will try it here eventually.
  9. I think that FF cheese is 0 pts if you're on Core. I'm just sayin'...
  10. I dunno about the little ones, but every Easter I have one Cadbury creme egg. Quite possibly the best 4 points I spend all year!
  11. I've always counted taters as veggies. Baked potatoes, steak fries (sliced and baked, not french fries), hash browns/home fries, etc... Hmmm... don't they make vodka from potatoes?
  12. I think any plan will work. You can even make up your own (ala Jared, the Subway guy). The questions are... is the plan you choose healthy? Is it something you can stick to? When you lose the weight, is it something you can live with and maintain that loss? WW encourages a healthy lifestyle change i.e. fruit & veggie serving, dairy & water servings, portion control and activity points. (as opposed to restictive diets and pre-packaged meals) I've been doing it almost 2 years now. I've lost 190ish pounds and I can honestly say that I've never felt like I starved myself. I just hit my goal weight last week, so I'll have to get back to you in the maintenance part. Give it a try. If it doesn't work out for you, then find something that does. More power to you!
  13. For the Palm OS, you can use WWCALC for free.
  14. If it's something you really like, then don't stay away from it. You'll only end up... A) Craving it and eating everything else until you get it. or B) Feel deprived and punished and give up your "diet". Guesstimate the points the best you can and have a little in moderation. Unfortunately most German food (und bier) isn't very point friendly. That's when those 35 weekly flex points come in handy!
  15. Wow, you're easy. They didn't have to offer you beads or anything! You're a braver man than I. Nice ink BTW. Are you going to add some color?
  16. I have been living on those things for almost a year now! I've been eating the light ones because the "regular" ones are 2 pts. They taste fine to me. I may have to try those multi-grain wraps for a change of pace tho. Here's the website if you're interested: www.flatoutbread.com (with nutritional info) They actually talk about WW in their FAQ. It says there are Flatout coupons and recipe books available at the meetings. Has anyone seen these? :lol: Too funny!
  17. Sumo Wrestlers don't eat breakfast!
  18. I throwing my 2 cents in a bit late, but hopefully it will still be useful. I've got a 13 y/o at home too. He doesn't have a problem with his weight so I don't preach to him too much about his diet. I have stressed that genetics plays a part in being obese and that his mother and I were/are overweight, so he has the potential to get fat if he isn't careful. He has picked up a few healthy eating habits over the last year, so some of it must be sinking in. Anyway, I'd advise reminding your son that his health has a direct affect on the things enjoys... football for instance. The healthier you are, the better athlete you are. Hopefully his coach will reinforce that. You may encourage him to try wrestling too. My son does that and they are VERY conscious about their weight as they are divided up into weight classes. Of course the biggest motivator for any young man is GIRLS! Once he drops the pounds and has all the little teeny-boppers chasing after him, you probably won't have to worry about keeping him inspired! But the main gal in his life is still mom. As much as you are doing this for him, he's probably doing it for you. Tell him you need his help so you will be around to see his children. (and their children!) Best of luck to you both!
  19. Wow, it's been so long that I've added anything that I forget. Maybe just double-click on it in Windows Explorer. I think it will add it the next time yousync your PDA. (maybe!) Try looking at the Palm Pilot forum over on DWLZ. Lots of WWcalc experts there. Including Bob, who wrote the software!
  20. Sure, that would go over well with my wife... "Excuse me honey, do you mind if I run up to Chicago this weekend to hang out with a bunch of hot 20-something women?" :D Oh well, take lots of pictures for me... er... I mean all of us here at BcB!
  21. HUBBA, HUBBA! Congrats Green Bean. Cool note from your hubby too. You kids have fun in the windy city. (look south and wave to me and CW)
  22. 400-------------300----------250 Still "under constuction"
  23. Smothered in what?
  24. I've always assumed it was 1/2 cup for raw/cooked veggies and 1 cup for the leafy stuff like lettuce. I believe that's what the USDA food pyramid thingy says anyway. I mentioned this on another message board and was told that 1 cup of broccoli is one serving. (I was also told to "check the WW book") Well I tried to look it up, but I didn't see anything in the getting started book (or on the WW website) that specified what a veggie serving is. The only thing that came close was that broccoli is listed in the back of the book as 1 cup = 0 points. Are the portions listed on the food list supposed to be a serving size? Is there some official word from WW, or is this one of those vague areas? Thanks.
