Today was my first weigh in. Down 5 pounds my first week!

*Lisa*

Dwelling on past mistakes does you no good. You can change everything today if you want to, or you can keep living the life you've always lived. It's up to you, but remember this: every moment is an opportunity to change your life.
~Aaron Chavez

I wake up every day with the realization that this is it, that there's only one shot at this life and I can either enjoy the ride and live it to its fullest and to my highest potential or I can stay the way I am.

Happy New Year! How is everyone doing? I'm going to rejoin ww on 14th (after a weekend at MILs) as I think this week is going to be the first when I don't lose any weight (after 8 losses in a row of at least a pound).

I would love to join you in this goal. I celebrated a birthday earlier this month, and my goal for my next year of life is to lose more weight than I did last year. Moving more is essential to that plan.

I am starting with walking more while the weather is still nice.

I've had a very marvelous Monday! Been OP and getting off my fanny ---- it's Stand Up and Move week and I plan to do just that! There are so many little things I can do in a day to add small amounts of extra movement -- I just have to make a concentrated effort --- and that's my goal for the week --- to be more aware of how much I'm sitting and to turn that around!

Anyone want to join me in this goal????

I just found this team and see that there's not a lot of activity on here --- but that doesn't mean we can't shake it up and light that spark!!! I joined WW a couple of weeks ago --- first time for me on the pts plus --- but I know that WW works from years ago when I was on it ---- as we've heard many times: it works if we work it!!! That's where I'm at --- wanting to work it and get this journey on it's weigh!!!!

Donnaeda --- your post is a couple of weeks old, but hope you're still asking for support b/c I'm on board and needing some too! Maybe we can get things rolling on this team --- I would love to see an active WW team on spark --- I need the live & in person support of the WW weekly meetings, but I also love all the wonderful resources/information here on spark. The two together should make a winning combination! I'm going to go check out your blog ---

This week's meeting topic is about "Moving" --- not sitting --- but moving! I'm going to try and increase my "moving" time --- so I will get off here and get my bum moving right now!

First. I want to say I am so sorry I have been away for so long. I hope you forgve me for nt being supportive to all of you. Today I went to Weight Watchers for my weekly weigh in. I am happy to report I lost 4.6 pounds. In 2009 I reached my goal, but gain back 35 pounds of the 75 pounds I originally lost. So I am back to WW and glad of it. Maintenance scares the heck out of me. I usually don't stay there and succeed in keeping my weight off. So I am 15 pounds from goal and I am asking for support from all of you. I have started writing a blog about my current emotional journey with weight loss and I think this has helped me lose the 20 pounds I have lost. I am facing my issues by writing about them.

Thanks! I will add you. I honestly don't use the ww site too much. I like SP b/c it is so easy to navigate. I just started a new team. Weight Watchers & Sparkpeople = Perfect Team. Check it out if you want!

Hi, I'm an active WW participant. If you have eTools for WW, you are more than welcome to add me as a friend on there. My ID is severina418, as well. Or we can talk here! I, too, noticed that this isn't active.

Hello! I am new to this team and it looks like there hasn't been much activity on here for quite awhile. Does anyone still use this? I would love to meet some other people using (and succeeding on) Weight Watchers. Wondering if it might be better to start a new WW team???

Hi, does anyone know if we can freeze the single serving containers of yogurt and it be like frozen yogurt? Or is frozen yogurt actually made differently?

Hi everyone, I'm SHER and I just started Weight Watchers Points Plus Plan of 27 Points Per Day. I was horrified with the prices they want for online W.W. So, I turned SparkPeople into Weight Watchers Points. I Changed Calories for Points, changed all my food favorites, etc into points. It took a long time, but it can be done. So, instead of you seeing calories on my foods you will see Points. And, when I reach 27 Points, I'm done for the day. I do not use the extra 49 or what ever it is. I use only the 27 Points. I also went in and changed the Fruits & Vegs to 0 Points.

Question: Is anyone doing the "safe foods" and not counting? So far, counting has worked wonderfully for me and I have no complaints -- just wondering if the other option might work well too. What do you think? If you're doing that, how did you get your food plan ready for it? Anyone doing it and feeding their family just with those foods?

Been at lifetime weight, this time (done it twice before) and it has been 8 months. I am always really close every month when I weigh in. I am extremely careful the last week of the month. We are coming up on the next weigh in thinking it would be next week. I weigh in on Tuesdays, I look at the calendar and realize the month ends on a Tuesday. AHHHH, now I have another week to be really careful. Should be easy since as of this morning I am actually a half pound under my goal weight. Also, my husband just started the program at the beginning of the month so we are doing it together. I even go to two meetings a week even though I only have to go to one a month. February will be my 9th month at goal.

New low reached 149.2 lbs on 5/6/11. Made my weight watcher goal on Tuesday, May 3, 2011.
New walk record 9/9/11, 4 miles in 58 minutes.

I am new to WW. I just joined a couple of weeks before the 2012 tweaks. I am not sure if I like it or not. I like the meetings as it helps me to remember on Tuesday and Wednesday to eat well. (weigh in is Wednesday eve). However, I find it hard to calculate points when I am in a hurry all the time. I don't have much time to work on this when I have work and all the regular life stuff to focus on. I know it will take planning but I seem to be fluctuating a lot and it is frustrating knowing I am spending hard earned money on it.

Hello! I am new to this team, but not to SP or to WW. I have currently lost 120 pounds with the old program and have signed up for WW online to try the new program. By the old program, I mean 1,2,3 success. Before the extra weekly points, etc. I am trying to lost the last 20ish pounds or so. I've been trying to for the past 10 months and can't seem to do so. I thought what do I have to lose by giving it a try? I like the idea of no points for the fruit and veggies. I eat plenty of those already.

Looking to make some new friends, too. Lots of luck and success to all!!

Today at the meeting we were told that the daily allowance is now a range, that it's not set in stone like it was (not counting the weekly points), whatever we think works for us if we hit a plateau but no less than 26. Sounds a bit fishy. Also some PP values have changed and that's pretty much it except that now they have a new calculator that goes down to 26 point although the old one can still be used -- just deduct 3 points at the beginning of the day if you are working on 26 points, for example. Apparently the formula to calculate points off nutritional labels is still the same.

What's your impression?

Hello,
I was not happy to see that I only get 26 points now.... not that I always used them, but that number seemed reasonable. I do think that if you really follow the WW plan you would not think you can eat a pound of cake for 29 points and call it a day! You are supposed to be tracking the healthy items, 3 tsp. of oil, many fruits and vegetables, 3 dairy items, exercise etc. I think if you do all that you will lose. I've lost nearly 80 pounds on the points plus and really followed it pretty faithfully. I've been happy with the number 29 and even though I was often a couple under, I did often hit 29 and go over into the extra points on treats etc. I'm not one that adapts easily to change!! I have my meeting tomorrow and my leader will explain it well I'm sure.

Toodles,
H.

Ha! WW is rolling out these new features and I found my points lowered to 26 with a weekly allowance of 46. It's going to take some adjusting; I had finally organized myself around 29 pt+. I have to say it makes more sense seeing how much the calories can fluctuate.

Anyone else with a couple of surprises?

So it's not my imagination :) I keep on tracking on both WW and SP and have been able to lose on 29 points. SP guides my choices in terms of fat, protein and carbs and so long as I keep that balance, the calorie count remains on the lower side. Let's face it, one could eat 29 points of pound caked and lose the weight, but it doesn't each anything in terms of nutrition. I think I liked it better before points were introduced; one had to eat so much of each food group and within the calorie range chosen then there were floaters. It wasn't eating blind. Next week, the meeting will be about new features for Point Plus; we'll see if it improves our knowledge on food.

That is a good question Brenda... I was wondering the same thing as I am fairly new to this group. I also need to be held accountable.... it seems to be the only way anything difficult like this works for me. That is one reason I joined this group hoping to find support with others doing the WW program. I also joined the SparkLive Team and have started attending live meetings.

Your observation is pretty interesting Maraude.... I did WW back in the early 80's after my first baby and found the only way I could lose weight was to eat about 4 points less a day than the maximum allotment. I am finding the same thing again this time. If I eat 29 points a day I do not lose weight. I've cut myself to 25 to see if this will work. I too have not been exercising as much which I know is not helpful to weight loss. No physical restrictions... just life, work and family demands I have let overtake my time. Time to change that though! I will be joining the 10 minutes a day SparkTeam this week to get myself back into it.

Have a good evening everyone!

~~Andrea~~

Don't just dream it, LIVE IT!

Hi,

Has anyone noticed how the same amount of point plus can add up to sometimes 400 calories difference? I've been logging here and on WW. Wondering how that's going to play in the long run. I'm also not able to walk that well and must rely primarily on diet right now until cleared by doc so this is really making me wonder seeing that I calculated my total caloric needs based on the article here on SP http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/calori
e_calculation101.asp? and calorie-wise the deficit to just loose one pound a week is 500 per day which puts me under the minimum of 29 points if I want to do that. As I lose weight, the total calories I can eat in a day keep going down if I want to keep losing at the same rate of 1 lb / wk. WW and SP don't seem to see it eye-to-eye or is it just assumed one exercises all the time which is a problem seeing possible medical restrictions. Just writing out loud :)

Comments?

PS Assuming this is where this is most of the interaction occurs :)

HI again...
Where is most of the interaction with this group? Is there one place where most people interact most often? I really need to connect and be accountable in some way.

P.S. HI Sue!

Good morning, everyone.... I'm new here so I'm still feeling my way around.
Today, I'm going to step before I go to work....gotta "STEP" it up a bit and not be easy on myself. I just landed on this truth this weekend---I've been too easy on me....If I don't get a little more serious about what I truly want to do with my LIFE, my HEALTH, and my FITNESS, I won't reach my goals....:) I'll post back later in the day and let you know how I did!
Have a fabulous day, everyone!
Brenda

Morning
We put our clocks back the week before and I am just about getting my body regulated...lol

Yes we get some rain, although this year has been quite a dry one,getting some now though. This time last year we had 3' of snow and it just stayed and more came for about 3 months, worst winter for a long time, hope we don't get that this year. I hate not being able to get out.

Last week, I was low on my WW points as I was ill (getting better but not there yet) and I didn't eat much. This is a huge change for me as I used to eat my way better and gain loads. This time I stayed the same so I am happy with that. Having lots of water and soup at the moment

Be back later, DH is on nights this week so want to get some quiet jobs done while he is in bed and then can get back here tonight
Have a great day
hugs
sue

Oh Sue, your across the ocean, I just noticed, you get rain alot don't you? We are to have rain tonight and rain and snow tomorrow night and snow the next night, not ready for the white stuff yet, but then it beats tornadoes.

We went back on daylight savings time last night and it messes me up for a month before I adjust, I liked it when it stayed light longer now it will be dark by 5pm and its harder to drive in the winter time here you have to be so careful due to you dont' want to slide into anyone.

Hey have a nice weekend, whats left of it!

Morning all, starting to feel better, but still very tired.

Over here in the UK we have rain and then more rain, but the temps feel warm, about 55 so a change from this time last year when we were under 2' of snow!!

Oh yes must have a Christmas tree...lol....although now there is only Dh and me we just have a small tree on the sideboard and a few bits and pieces around. When teh kids come round they are happy with that, they all have Christmas dinner at the girls mothers so that our grandaughter has cousins to play with and other dil her mum had a stroke so they are with her.
They come here to open pressies first and then we spend time together on Boxing Day and on New Year. This is the first year for 4 years that DH has not been on shift at work so will be nice to have him here all day.

Sue, from UK

Good Morning! I am new to the team here, but not new to spark, I have issues with weight due to alot of medications, and so you lose a little you gain a little , its really rather difficult but I fight with the docs about changing pills and they all say why rock the boat.

I am from Sioux Falls and I just moved here, I use to live in a little town in the central part of the state and moved to NJ for 2 months, did not think it was for me and came back here, to be by I thought better docs, but the verdicts still out on that one.

I have a long ways to go, I need to lose about 100 pounds and I have been on every diet out there, and because of the medication and injuries and illnesses I am way behind everyone I started with.

I am going back to WW next week after I get the rest of the doc appts out of the way, they have a meeting at 12:15 on weds that will work better for me so if the roads are good and dont' get snow etc on them I know how to get there and am looking forward to rejoining.

Hope you all have a great day, nice to be here!
