  1. Right now it seems to be banana's and salad with light Balsamic dressing. The funny thing is I use to hate banana's but now I eat 1-2 a day.
  2. I am also coming back from around 2007. I am doing the old program also I can't remember the name of it right now without getting up (lol, guessing it is Points Plus ) but I am using my old calculator with the 35 flex points a week. The first time I did it I lost 75lbs but that was with 2 hours of exercise a day and I just do not have time to commit like that, I ended up gaining 38 back after having a baby. So slow and steady this time around, eating better and exercising when I can. I am looking for a lifestyle change to get healthy more than the actual weight loss. I am setting my goal at 160 starting at 227, down to 221.6 in 2 weeks. I am not going to lie I ate junk 24/7 so just drinking water and adding fruits/veggies in addition to lean meats and low fat dairy is a huge advance for me.
  3. I'm at almost 40 loss and not much change. I went and bought a pair of capri's today that were almost a little snug. The weired thing was it is the size that I wore 40lbs heavier and my other clothes in this size are big. I think we get use to our new weight and can't really see it.
  4. Lesa, look how skinny you are getting! You look great, I can't believe the difference!
  5. I had two things that was the last straw. 1. Is that I can't keep up with my 3 year old DD and I don't want her to have to be teased because she has a fat mom. 2. Was a picture of me sitting next to my dd at Christmas and I had 10 chins. That was it for me. I never realised how bad it had become.
  6. I have all sorts of junk food in my house because of my Dh. I eat as healthy as I can through out the day and work out to earn AP's. Having these allow me to have a cookie if I want it. You need to find something that shows why you want to loose weight. Is it to wear a certain sized clothing? Then buy a cheap outfit in that size and hang it on the door to remind you. Are you doing it for your kids or loved ones? Then put a pic on the fridge. I am the type of person that really needs to be inspired. I look at my DD and that helps. I had to actually join a meeting to get back on track because I am an emotional eater and I was going through hard times, knowing that I have to weigh in at the end of the week helps. If you can get rid of the junk food than do it, if not find something that inspires you!
  7. I am aiming for the very top of what I should be. At my meeting today they said that if you think the weight WW's is saying is your goal is too low you can get a Dr's note on what they think is your healthy weight. If you do this they will use this instead.
  8. I stopped drinking pop almost completely, diet or other wise, sticking just with water, juice, or Crystal Light products. I have not seen any extra lose from doing so, but I heard somewhere that you can have caffeine drinks as long as you replace it with equal amounts of water as stated above. I'm not sure if this is true, but I am sure one of the veterans can clarify this.
  9. Joanne, thanks for the reply! I went out tonight and bought some. I can't wait to give them a try.
  10. Can someone tell me how much these weigh? I bought the video's and now I want to go get the balls but I am not sure how much they weigh. Thanks!
  11. If you know how to figure out the points you can go to www.yum.com and go to nutrition area. They have it so you can customize your order.
  12. I wouldn't count your daily activity as AP's. Now if you go out for a walk or running with the specific purpose of exercising then go for it.
  13. I would join for a couple months if you need help getting on track or if you need the validation of weighing in to someone every week. Or if you are not working out with weight training or a variety of toning exercise you may want to put the money towards joining a gym. I have a co worker that is 140 and wants to be 130. She is really struggling with that 10 lbs but I keep telling her she is not fat that she just needs to tone up. When you get the that point that is usually more helpful, a trainer there can tell you what you need to do to get that pesky 10 lbs to go away. Good luck!
  14. Thanks for the replies, I am glad to see that the bike is okay. I really hope my knee situation will approve with time.
  15. I always tell hubby to take my daughter and go take a nap so I can exercise in peace...lol.
