So, here I am again, struggling and depressed about my ongoing battle with unwanted pounds and physical problems that have dominated my life for the last half year. I have not been able to exercise for months now due to physical limitations and my weight has been going up partially as a result of the lack of exercise and , to be truthful, partially because I have been eating way too much in response to physical and emotional pain. New I am scheduled for a total knee replacement in February and want to lose at least some of what I have gained prior to my surgery.....so I am re dedicating myself to healthy eating, portion control, and planning ahead. I am so tired of this roller coaster!

So, today marked one week of doing the old,old, weight watcher program that was called Qucikstart........and when I weighed myself this morning I had lost 4.3 lbs.! I have NEVER lost this much in one week - or even in two weeks. I hope this momentum continues, though I am a bit worried because we will be traveling away from home from Saturday through next Thursday and being away from home always makes things so much more challenging. I am motivated to stick to it throughout the trip as best I can because this week went so well. I have been struggling with the new WW program literally for years with no success, so this success on the old guidelines makes me feel more hopeful.

Well, I have spent months and months doing the WW Points Plus program and have been totally frustrated with the lack of success, despite being faithful to the program. This week I searched my house and found the original materials I used when I first joined WW in 1988 and lost thirty pounds. I have gotten older and have more medical issues etc., so I don't expect to lose as quickly or as much as I did all those years ago, but I am hoping this old program will work again for me to some degree. I started on Tuesday, so now I will weigh in on Tuesdays and hope to see some progress in the right direction.
Has anybody else found the Points Plus program ineffective?

Life can be a struggle.......everyone experiences times like that, but not everyone reacts like I do. I have spent the last few weeks struggling with emotional eating and have seen the negative results created by such behavior. Today the scale confirmed my fears that my mindless and, sometime deliberate, mistreatment of my body has just added to my feelings of depression and stress. SO today I committed myself to respecting my body and have started all over in the weight management journey. I know I'm capable of managing my eating patterns and am determined to reverse the negative trend I have been watching over the past couple of months. Wish me luck, please!

I got a new scale since the one I have been using for years has obviously gone crazy - one step on it had me thirty pounds less than the day before! The new one weighs me in as higher than the old one by a couple of pounds. It's depressing, but probably more accurate. This one weighs in increments of two tenths of a pound , so I am hoping to see progress in small increments. Right now though, I have to deal with the higher readings than those I have been seeing. YUCK! So now my ticker looks like I have regained all my weight! I wish I could free myself from the need to weigh and having my feelings often swayed by the numbers I see there on the scale .
