  1. Kos, she should start posting in the WW forum even if you get an answer here. People on there would be able to help. Also, can't she call WW? Is there a number? Just some thoughts. Sorry if they don't help.
  2. I'd like to share that some family trouble between my sister and myself has healed. I thank her and I thank God for that. I did not binge on Christmas. I ate proteins and vegs avoiding all other things, because I wanted Christmas to be about the joy of the day and NOT AT ALL ABOUT FOOD. I did well. CW, may your mother be well soon! I use e-tools to track my 8. It helps a LOT. The new iPhone app is the bomb!
  3. The key for me to avoid binges is to identify and avoid (like poison) trigger foods. My triggers: Sugar Flour Savory These food represent an allergy in my body that causes my body to chemically seek more of these items BECAUSE my body can't use them normally. It needs more and more. This is my interpretation of the trigger food concept and it is critical to my recovery from obesity. I also binged over the weekend. I picked myself up Sunday morning. Counted the points of my bingeing and now I am doing my best to go forward working for APs to keep my body moving and active. I probably won't make up all the OVER points amounts, but bingeboy is not welcome in my heart and mind. God and myself own this joint and we are gonna party on our OWN~
  4. We just need the info. The meeting will run itself CW.
  5. Repeat after me: "LONG TERM WEIGHT LOSS" Love your enemies for they are you.
  6. The best part of the new program in my opinion is encouraging people to be aware of carbohydrates. Carbohydrates have been extremely overused in modern processed food to the detriment of consumers' health. Also the sugar that is surreptitiously included in foods also jacking up the caloric value of things.
  7. The most WW would say is that WPA and AP are there for you to use... optionally! So if you don't use them and you don't lose, then use them and you might. WW corporate has plenty of experience with this stuff. I'd be inclined not to question that much. If you feel like you can't get points finished off, then consider eating more high-fat good food like nuts, fish, etc, as long as they don't trigger you. Nuts trigger me big time BTW! Lately I am finding canned beans to be extremely helpful. High pointsplus values 7-8 for instance with good fiber, protein and potassium, which my poor muscles need IMHO. OK /rant off HUGS!
  8. Hey all, Spreading points out during the day is a good idea CW. Good luck. The increased number of PP and AP is keeping me on-plan and I am grateful for that as it is helping to rebuild my confidence so I can exercise more and live the athletic lifestyle I want to without worrying about going off-plan because evercise makes me hungry. Also I try to stay away from flour and sugar, which helps trigger me big time. If I want to eat something with flour I recognize its triggering potential and eat protein with it. So far so good this week, halfway through my WW week.
  9. Kos, I feel the same way. I love my leader, but sometimes the food talk gets me down. Have an apple. Myabe you are hungry
  10. Thank you so much for your leadership CW. You're the man!
  11. Scientifically speaking it is often said that the body adapts to daily activity, so your body may actually "burn" less energy to get your through your day walking around. Hence, better to err on the side of caution. Also, anything that is new or different or out of the blue, I would count that more vigorously. Just my thoughts.
  12. It could only be relative fat content.
  13. Sorry you guys are getting bad info out there. I would be careful of any packaged fruit. Seems like manufacturers like to add sugar as a kneejerk reaction. LOL. Preservatives are irrelevant in my opinion vis a vis WW.
