This is a monthly thread for those of us who have a lot of weight to lose. The definition of “a lot” is something that is determined personally, so everyone who feels they have a lot of weight to lose is welcome to post here.
Please join us in offering support, checking in for accountability, help with questions, etc. We’re in this for the long haul.
We’d also love to hear from those of you who are maintaining a large loss. We need those tips to help us to keep the weight off once we lose it
sunrose - I'm glad you had a nice time away, you made it home before any bad weather. I love "vacation" food
DotRen - You can't control things when you are not well, so that's a great attitude. Hope you are feeling better today.
I'm hoping September will be a good month for you. I'm glad the summer is almost over, I hate it most of the time. I'm not actively trying to lose weight right now so if I can just keep eating healthy, keep moving and not gain any weight this month, I'll be very happy.
Hope this is a great month for all who post here. Have a good day
Oh! I forgot to post about this lol. In the last 4 years my son has been through 2 starters, 1 ignition switch, 4 batteries, and an alternator. This happened again last week and they finally figured it out: he had a stereo put in at best buy 4 years ago. When we went to pick it up, it wouldn't start and the tech said he "might have left the lights on overnight", so we didn't think anything about it (other than the guy was an idiot). Sons battery died 3 days later - that was the first thing. Since the 2nd battery died about 4 months later, we just though it was a bad battery- it happens - of course we replace the battery, not a shop. Alternator, well it is an old car (2005) so probably just that. Fast forward to all the "well.. it's an old car, bad battery, etc) - the first starter was right after his wreck last year, so we thought maybe it was somehow damaged by the impact; 2nd starter was about a month ago. So last week, son was talking to them and they (they is the shop we always use) were telling him they can see there's something draining the battery and asked him if he had any electrical work done and he said "well I had a stereo put in 4 years ago" and something clicked. They disconnected the radio and no more drain. I told him get a statement from the shop and take it to best buy -they won't do anything but they need to know their technicians installed it wrong and the wiring was really messed up!
My name is Rene IG @dotren1tx since I'm not good at adding photos on here lol
hi Im new here. I have too many pounds to mention I need to lose. I have been away from ww and will be rejoining next week. I know ww changes up their points plans every so often , I liked the old points, I had books that covered so many things alphabetically. I dont have them anymore. So what is the latest plans that works for all of you? I am very motivated and excited to start losing with ww. I have been using mfp to log my weight and trying to log my food. I am going to be more regular with exercise too. I am a mom of 6, all grown, 2 still home.. 19 and 22 yr old girls. in my 50s, and desperate to get back to a more fit and fab me
If its going to be it's up to me. 287/286.5/260 (1st goal)
dotren, wow that is terrible that happened to your son's car! Glad they finally figured it out.
cj, I love ice cream. I try to buy low point stuff.
kimm, welcome to the group. Everyone here seems to be doing different things. I go to WW meetings, but I am honestly not following the program. I have about 60 pounds to lose and it seems overwhelming to me. Hope you keep joining us. Wow 6 kids!
Waving to all
I did not go to the class yesterday. I plan on going this morning.
kimm - Welcome to the thread and the board. I think we are all doing different things for weight loss, but the support here is great. I used the old Momentum plan (from 2009-2010) to lose a lot of weight. Unfortunately I've put some of it back on so I'm working to get back on track.
If you are interested in the older points plans you might want to check out the app "ITrack Bites". It has all the older WW points plan and I think it has calorie counting too. Several people on this board use it so you might want to check out the General Discussion board to ask questions. It sounds like WW will be coming out with a new plan later this year, so it will be interesting to see what it is. Some people really like Freestyle and some don't. I guess that's the same for any plan
sunrose - I'm glad you had a good time at the jazzercise class, I bet it was fun.
I'm doing pretty well but giving myself a break today since I went to a local Amish market and picked up a few treats. I did buy green beans too though, and I'm cooking them right now. I bought a lot less junk than I usually do, so I was happy to be able to restrain a bit.
Hope everyone else is doing well with their plans and in their lives
