That's a great question. I have made lots of little changes to my eating habits. I still eat the same foods, just more of the healthy ones and less of the bad choices. I still need to work on getting exercise more regularly.

The thing I thought would be hard that is now normal to me is drinking water. I still haven't got on the exersize wagon, but water is replacing almost all soda to me and I am hoping it will replace ALL before too long!

Hope everyone is having a great day!

I think that we all need to be a little easier on ourselves if we slip off plan, accept the stumble, and get right back on track again. That's real life!

Whoo hoo!! Nice loss there, Lisa!! This is so true that we shouldn't beat ourselves up when we slip. We are all human afterall, and we can always learn from our mistakes, and know what not to do in the future.

I recycle, and use reusable bottles for water and lunches. Hearing all of you talk about cold water washing, and I'm going to switch. I usually do warm, but I'm sure cold would be fine, and I'd save energy. I got a new energy saving washer this year too, and supposedly with 8 loads/week, it only will cost 27$ to run it for the year. It sounds so cheap, I don't really believe it.

Since I am having a glass of wine tonight --it's been one of those days -- that leaves me 5 points for dinner.

Welcome to weight watchers!! It's a great program, and like others have said ask if you have any questions. I've done it many times. I know I'm a day late, but don't forget about your flex points. They are meant to be used each week, and help to keep your metabolism up, and keep you satisfied. Many people have said they have more success and higher losses when they use all of their flex points, and activity points, and I find that to be true. Are you going to the meeting? They always have great recipes and ideas to share at the meetings. Good luck.

My biggest change has been exercise. I never liked to exercise, I don't have any particular sport I enjoy. I've always enjoyed sedentary things like reading and scrapbooking. But I was anxious to lose some weight quickly last year, so I incorporated lots of cardio (about 30-40 minutes per day, 3-4 days per week) when I started WW again. And it really made a difference, not just in my weight loss, but in my endurance and stamina. When we went to WDW in April 2008 I walked (speed walking in some cases) for HOURS a day and never got too tired or winded or sore. I had NO trouble keeping up with the kids (can't say the same for DH) and even had more energy than them sometimes.

I really let the exercise lag during the summer last year (I wasn't taking DD to the YMCA for swim, so I used it as an excuse for myself), but I started up again in about September/October and have keep it up steadily since then, and have increased to about 60 minutes per day 5-6 days per week. And now I can't imagine not doing it! Not because I love it so much, but because it has become a HEALTHY HABIT and I know how much better I feel (both physically and mentally) when I exercise faithfully. Plus I love the example I am setting for my kids. Even if they don't get up and move, I know that they see that I am making my exercise a PRIORITY and hopefully that will stick with them...............P
I could have written the same thing, P. I have been doing the watp exercise tapes 5 days/week for a couple years now, but last spring/summer, I stopped, and completely got out of the exercise routine, and gained 20 pounds, but now since september, I've been faithful and it is so much easier to do since it has become a routine. I do a 30 min 3 days/week, and a 60 min twice, at least. I was surprised at how easy it has become to do, I like to get up before my son and do my tape, and have some alone time. I also feel that I have more energy and stamina, and am more active with my son during the days too.

Whoo hoo!!! congratulations to the top ten, and to sabushka our biggest loser!! You all should be so proud!!

I've had a good couple days, eating wise. I did go shopping, (thanks 50sjayne for tempting me) but didn't have much luck. I need some casual summer shirts, and found them all to be too clingy with the ribbed fabric out there. I'm looking it as inspiration to keep on this healthy track, and lose this weight, so my rolls won't show to badly under the shirts.
Hopefully, I'll be able to go back in a couple months and get the shirts that were just a little too snug then, and they will look awesome!

I'm off to the bus stop. Hope you all are having a great day.

It is fun isn't it? Congrats.

The 2 quotd's
We've always recycled but I found out how much more I could recycle when i was volunteering at a local thrift shop- it's getting kind of crazy- I keep begging husband for another recycle bin but for some dumb reason he doesn't want another one... So I use the empty litterbuckets and they work just as well I guess. Lord help us though if we forget to take the kitchen recycle stash out on trash day though. Energy efficient bulbs, I am the energy cop although it is very frustrating with an energy hog for a husband. Have always made errands efficient but now do use bike more for one stop things that are close like checking out bargains at a nearby Grocery Outlet and taking back videos (and garage saling lol)
Hard changes.
Lunch at work. I have found I'm happy with an apple or some other kind of fruit and a V-8 for lunch every day. Believe me I have gone all kinds of ways with this- this is fine.

QOTD:- Giving up butter, cheese and chocolate. Well, not so much the chocolate but I've barely noticed I'm not bothering with the other 2. The chocolate thing is a daily struggle but I try to allow myself a little every now and then.

So I was going to go work out after my meeting tonight but I feel awful. I can't breath properly (am all stuffed up) and I keep coughing. I hate being sick. It ruins perfectly good plans. And it just seems like no matter when I try to work out, something happens to stop it. I get forced out to work or the babysitter can't stay that long, etc. How frustrating.

I haven't posted much, but I've been lurking and keeping up. The water in the COW is my biggest obstacle right now. I have got to get used to drinking it instead of my Diet Coke.

Congratulations to all the losers

I have done ok this week. The weekend, not so great, but the past 3 days I have tried to keep myself on track, even getting in my walking the past 2 days. Just a little while ago I did have a moment with some chocolate chip cookie dough DD10 hit me up to make them as soon as I got home from work. Apparently, she was having a chocolate craving!

Anyway, I have now cooked all the dough, and luckily the cookies dont appeal as much to me as the dough, so I should be good now.

Today at lunch, a rep brought in mexican food to feed the clinic where I work. I stayed away from the chips, and chose chicken and veggies. Made me a plate and brought it home and put on my own wheat tortillas. Had the black beans on the side. It was really yummy! I didn't even miss the cheese dip. I hope my baby steps will pay off in the long run. The sooner the better!

Oh man! This is so me! I just do not enjoy exercising. It is the one thing that is going to make a difference for me and I am just going to keep trying until I figure out what works!

Anyway, back to the QOTD . . . . the one healthy change that I made that I thought would be hard but isn't is journaling my food. I am used to it now and it really helps me to see where I need improvement and where I have room for a little indulgence.

Thanks to all of you who commented on the WW thing. I have a lot of fine tuning and learning to do as apparently the food that I thought wasn't too bad, actually is point heavy so I either use up my points or am hungry. I can see how it will help with the COW because you can eat a lot of fruits and vegetables for a few points! I picked up a couple of WW magazines to help with my planning. I haven't started meetings yet but will when I get back from DL in a couple of weeks.

You guys are my inspiration as a lot of you who have had a lot of consistent and good success these past several months are the WW folks.

I know I need to just get back on track. Holiday weekends are not good for me. I look forward to them, but I just don't follow through with exercise or eating right. I guess I need to schedule a race so I will have to do what I need to.
Try not to think about it as coming back with your tail between your legs. You came back and that is what matters. You can do this


Today's QOTD:

What "GREEN" thing(s) do you do on a regular basis?


I bring my reusable bags to the grocery store and now the mall. I use the energy lightbulbs, recycle, wash in cold and really try to be concsious of what I do.



Today is going great. The scale moved today - Hopefully I can hold on to it. My calories have been the higher range this week. Funny how that works. My body didn't like me staying low and static last week. I can't wait till Friday to see where my final WI.

What is one healthy change that you made that you thought would be SO HARD, but is now part of your regular routine??
Two things really:
1. Exercise - I have always worked out on and off - but for most of 2008, I didn't make time for it. I felt like there weren't enough hours in the day to get to the gym - new baby, working full time, hour commute, etc. But in Feb 2009 I started working out 4-6 times a week. I still find the time to work out almost every day.
2. Stop eating out of the department candy dish at work - This is a more recent change - like 2 weeks ago! Once I made the commitment to logging all my calories, this habit died fast! I still crave sweets but not the extent I did before.

Some times it is like that and it is so frustrating! Your body may be adapting, it might be hormonal, it might just be one of those things. Keep up the good work and that scale will budge. You can't stop stress but you can adjust your reaction to it. Maybe some simple breathing exercises would be a good place to start. We're here for you through the good times and bad.
