  1. Thanks so much! You've done fabulous! I can't wait to get where you are; I'm sure it feels very good. There are some tough days but this board has been great! Thanks again for the support.
  2. Okay, that didn't work - I copied and pasted the url??? but this is all that's coming up. I'll still play with it but if you can lend any help, I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks so much!
  3. Testing for my ticker! When I tried to put it in my signature, the web address shows up but not the graphic so excuse the post, I'm going to see what happens! Thanks,R
  4. Well, after a horrible first week with a .8 weight loss only :-(, I finally seemed to have turned the corner with a 3.4 pound weight loss in week 2!!!! :-) I was very excited about it and am hoping that I can continue with the trend this week. I know it won't be as much because I was back in that famished mode and have already used almost all of my flex points with still 3 days to go this week. If I don't plan meals and keep vegetables handy, my day quickly turns to disaster with all points used by early afternoon. Anyways, hope everyone is well and thanks again for the support. If anyone can tell me how to get my ticker on my profile or where it's visible on here, please let me know. Thanks so much! Gigi
  5. Hi there and welcome! I had the same struggle and frankly, was miserable my first week. I was nearly out of points by early afternoon each day. I found that loading up on the veggies (using the 5 servings a day of veggies and fruit) helped a lot. Also, I just used the flexpoints when I felt I couldn't take it anymore. The WW desserts are really good if you have a sweet tooth and are low in points. They are expensive, but worth it to not have the guilt and to know that you can enjoy a treat and still have the weight come off. Also, I was afraid to eat the meats and poultry because they seemed high in points to me and someone here suggested beans and I've been doing more of that. They are filling, low in fat, high in fiber, and take the hunger edge off! Good luck! Gigi
  6. Hi there and welcome! This forum will be a huge support to you; let us know if there is anything we can do to help! I'm about to start week 3 and didn't make much progress last week but will weigh in tonite and hopefully get some encouraging results! Again, welcome!
  7. Hello Everyone! Just wanted to check in and say hello and touch base with you all. Thanks again for all of your support and encouragement. I had a tough week that first week but stuck to the plan and felt a huge letdown when I only lost .8 pounds! I was devastated and ready to give up but I knew I was retaining fluid on the day of the weighin (I won't elaborate on that) so I decided to go full speed again this week. I go to weighin tonight so we'll see what happens. This week was extremely hard because I was in a 5-day training program from 8am to 6pm, didn't take any food with me and ALL day long they lugged in HUGE cookies, popcorn, chips, served huge lunches, decadent desserts and boy was it hard. I overdid it a couple of days but tried to count my points so we'll see how it went. I'll check back later after my weigh-in. How is everyone doing? If there are folks out there in their first few weeks also, let me know how it's going for you! Take care, Gigi PS - Can anyone tell me how to get the ticker factory tape on my profile here? Thanks!
  8. I'm baackkk! Thanks soooo much to all of you who were kind enough to post your suggestions and words of encouragement!!! I haven't fallen off of the wagon, I've actually just been crazy busy and work and so tired in the evenings that I haven't logged on. I am now on Day 5 and I still have about 20 flex points (is that what they're called?) and have counted everything I've eaten! I am going to heed your suggestions to add more veggies and protein. The protein scares me because it seems to be so much higher in points -- yesterday I had a small piece of lean beef and it was like 5 or 6 points just for the meat! Yikes! I will try the beans as well. I thought about Core but started with flex and need to stick it out this week to see if I've lost anything. I am tired and can't seem to get enough energy to exercise and I'm constantly thinking of food food food and points points points. I am going to read all of your posts again and the BCB guidelines again as well. I can't thank you all enough for your support; this is awesome! I'll let you know what the scale says on Thursday night. I'm praying for a loss so that I won't give into this urge to binge...this is hard but it's a lot easier than it would be if it weren't for you all. Thanks again sooooo very much from the bottom of my heart! Gigi
  9. Hello Everyone! I am starting my weight loss journey again after years of ups and downs with WW, Atkins, and various other diets. I am now trying WW again because although Atkins allowed me to lose weight, it required me to cut out a whole food group, which was difficult to maintain over the long haul. So...here I am after it all, weighing 197 pounds and needing to weigh 150 or so. Good grief! Anyway, I went to my first meeting on Thursday night, started on Friday and have been perpetually hungry ever since!!!! My points are down to 10 for the rest of today and I'm famished! Please help! I want to do this so bad but I've already thought to myself in less than two days that maybe I'm not so fat after all and shouldn't put myself through this again. I want to succeed as I have a 12 year old daughter who is obese and I'm trying to help set a proper example for her (she doesn't want to do WW but did agree to go to the meeting with me and has been watching what I eat like a hawk for the past two days). If you have any words of wisdom, please share and thanks so much for being here. I feel better just having written it all down! Thanks again, Gigi
