  1. This too shall pass. Key is minimizing the damage and getting right back on line after all the events - looks like you are headed that way with the walking. Helps.
  2. I also think 6 lbs is a good wt loss. When I was in my losing mode I found that rigerous adherence to the program was in order: 1. track (write down) everything including any activity pts earned (that means exercise) 2. study and know the pt values of foods, especially the ones you eat frequently 3. exercise - for me it had to be aerobic - moving my large muscle groups - walking then jogging later 4. if doing at home, you need to account to someone for your weight in events - keep yourself honest 5. eat breakfast always - concentrate on high protein - high fiber 6. measure and weigh things so you get an eye for correct portions 7. hydrate - drink lots of non-caffeine drinks (water preferred) 8. friend the scale - weighing shows trends Wt watchers works for me and will work for you if you follow program instructions! Life is good!
  3. I really like the fork saying too!! Har! But so true. Another from another self-help program, "Half measures avail us nothing."
  4. Been on maintenance for a little over five years - exercise is my new compulsion - that helps me maintain the weight loss, keeps me fit, the yearly doctor physicals in good stead, etc., etc. If I don't exercise I feel the slide and can actually see the wt creep back up. And my exercise these days includes lots of things. Main exercise routines are walking/jogging and yoga (hot and otherwise); but I am also doing ballroom dancing, downhill skiing, swimming, and some basketball.
  5. I got rid of the clothes as I lost weight - giving them to Goodwill - keeping the tax receipt. It was like I dropped of the clothes at the donation door, went around front and picked up some smaller clothes as the weight came off - that made me feel good.
  6. Welcome Jason. My story same here - been a while since I looked around here (have the day off). I guess I don't seem to have too much trouble with folks viewing things and not posting - seems like a tribute that they are even on the site and reading the good nuggets of wisdom that are posted.
  7. I have been a goal of 184 and have been running around 178 for several months doing maintenance and my receptionist and leader have not challenged me on this. I thought about resetting my own goal to a lower one cuz I seemed to be able to maintain my wt around the 178 range +- 2lbs. Seems like I have less variance in my wt shifts under Pt+ - not sure why. My consumption shifted to more protein and high grain complex carbs under Pt+.
  8. Being able to kiss my knees and run 5K races. All the comments from friends and loved ones about how much better I look - nice being a good example.
  9. Yo, Here is a different perspective. I don't track very often primarily using the simply filling technique. But I know in my mind I have become very "point conscious" over the years and am always reading labels and estimating the pt values on the foods I am injesting. I weigh frequently and still hit my weekly ww meeting to keep me accountable. In the past several months my has only varied about +/- 2.0 lbs which is unusual given the ramp up in exercise (running) in Montana's hot weather. I think it has something to do with the new Pt+ program I am following (where I did track there for 3 months when it first launched to re-calibrate my eye). My food intake has shifted to lots of proteins, fruits & veggies, and carbs with only multi-grain/whole wheat characteristics. Works for me.

  11. Super Bowl, What alternate plans do you have for exercise while you are recovering? I know when I broke my knee cap a couple years ago I thought my wt would climb drastically. It didn't cuz I started to really track and live w/in my daily pt allowance. I also did do some exercise in the swimming pool. But I really missed my running/walking - esp the time outdoors. Take care.
