  1. :bcb_confuI don't post often, but I do enjoy reading. I really enjoyed the Single thread. Not everyone has a significant other, husband, wife, child, dog, cat, bird, etc. Some of us are doing this trip totally and completely solo. It was nice to know there were others in the same boat, rowing along, silently, slowly and single. Perhaps the Single thread didn't have enough posts. That's too bad. If you bring it back, I promise to post more often. Right now, I feel even more alone.
  2. I know the class has come and gone, but congrats on going and making it through. I read that an hour long spin class can burn 500 calories (I know we don't count calories, but that's what I read). I LOVE spin class and it helped me drop 15 pounds. I was spinning 3-4 days a week, but not at 5:30 in the morning. May I suggest a later spin class? I used to go during lunch, two jobs ago (when I lost those 15 pounds). Now, I go about 1-3 times a week. At my gym, it's hit and miss because I've never gotten the same instructor twice. The wrong instructor can KILL the enjoyment of a spin class. There are shorts you can buy at sporting goods store that have padding between the legs and on the tush until you get used to the seats of a spin bike. Also, you can buy a special pad for the bike, just remember to take it with you when class is over. I also suggest a heart monitor so you know how hard you're working. Sweat isn't a good indication. Congrats to you for your first spin class. Once you get hooked; you're hooked!

    Lunch time!

    Cereal ALWAYS makes me hungry and I don't know why. I try having a protein as well as oatmeal, usually that helps. Good luck!
  4. You can do it. Think one day at a time. Prepare and pack your meals/snack for one day. Eat just that and nothing else. Do it again the next day. One step at a time, one foot in front of the other. No, it's not easy, but you know WW works and you can do it. I believe in postive reinforcement, not negative. When I was having a problem with the program, I could have used a bit more positive encouragement from some people. However, I did get some encouragement from here. We're all in it together and we can all succeed. Best of luck!
  5. Thanks everybody. I thought about the pudding while I was stuck in traffic last night on the way home. (Where do all those cars come from anyway??) I'll look for the Fiber-One bars and the Curves bars on the way home from the dentist tonight. Okay, maybe tomorrow night. Thanks again!!
  6. I love those 1 Point Bars you can purchase at a WW meeting. I limit myself to one bar every OTHER day because, well, they are sooo good. However, what I don't love is the cost. I share the box with my sister who is also OP and they don't last long. With that in mind, does anyone have any ideas for a very low point chocolate snack? I've looked online and in many books and the lowest I can find is 3 points. I'm guessing that's about as low as I can get. Any ideas? Can't eat rice cakes; something in them gives me a migraine. Thanks!
  7. I first read "To Kill a Mockingbird" when I was eight years old. I finished it in one weekend and to this day, it is still my favorite book. When I had to read it for school in the 5th grade, I told my teacher I had already read it and she didn't believe me. I told her the plot of the book and she was in shock. I had a hard cover copy of it from my youth that was burned in a fire, but it doesn't matter. I would read it off my cellphone, I love that book so much. I wonder if kids still have to read it. It was life changing.
  8. I've been staying OP and working out a lot. I love to work out. I'm curious, should I weigh in before working out or after? I take a spin class and then go to my meeting. Should I do it the other way around? Last Saturday, I weighed 1 pound less before working out than I did afterwards. What's your opinion?
  9. Sounds delicious, even though I prefer my veggies "naked". Will try this soon.
  10. Sometimes your doctor will put you on a drug that has a water pill effect and it may cause you to loose weight. When I was first on meds, that's what happened, but my body got used to it (too soon for me!) and my weight stabilized... until I joined WW and then it started going down. Keep in mind, that when you loose weight, sometimes, your physician will see your BP going down. That's always a good thing. That's my goal.
  11. Thanks for posting that. I was looking for Miso soup and there it was!! Regards,
  12. I like the 100 calorie packs, but I also make my own. After a bad week, I got back on track and began making my own "snack packs". I have a bag sealer and I portion out the 1oz or 1 portion, place it in the bag and seal it up. I purchased a regular size bag of fat-free chips and portioned them into the bag. I really like the Oreo cookie 100 packs and the Pecan sandies. They really work when someone brings cake to the office. I'm not as fond of the salty 100 calorie snacks and prefer to measure out my own. But the sweet snacks help me out. I also agree that the author of that comment probably never had a weight problem and good for him/her. As for me, if I buy a regular size anything, you can bet it'll be portioned IMMEDIATELY after opening. Regards,
  13. Have you tried the WW 1 pt bars? There's a caramel one that sort of tastes like a Snickers bar (sans peanuts). One, with some water, hits the spot for me. And I LOVE chocolate. Good luck.
  14. Thank you all for your words of wisdom. I was debating quiting the group because I felt I wasn't following the BCB philosophy and didn't want to stay if I couldn't. However, I have been following the philosophy, have been journaling, have been working out and am drinking more water. I have also noticed that pasta (not whole wheat, just white pasta) costs more points than it's worth. Again, thank you all for your help during this stumble. I appreciate it. Regards!
  15. I did journal today and noticed that I'm not drinking enough water. I have made a list of things I need and will do in order to be more successful. Thank you for your wake-up call. I appreciate it. Regards.
