I don't have the money to sign up for the meetings, but I found an online calculator, and my mom has been doing ww for a while and knows all the rules. I never knew how hard it would be! even the first day it was hard, because I like to snack!!! Kudos to ppl who do it for a long time!!"

I was super excited when I saw this thread get started up. I hope it will give me the motivation i need!!

When are you guys getting married, and where? Any tips for motivation? :)

Good luck!!
welcome4.gif Welcome Amelia! That's great that you two are doing it together. It makes it so much easier to do WW with a partner :) I know WW works and it is a little harder in the beginning because you don't know point values that well but once you start to learn them it really does get easier. Just concentrate on losing a little (no matter how little) each week and before you know it you will be at your goal! I love WW because NOTHING is off limits. You can have almost anything you want as long as you plan ahead and watch portions :) Oh, and I'm getting married April 24, 2010 at the Moon Palace in Cancun, MX :) Good Luck and happy posting!

Good for you for going to the gym. I had knee surgery about 7 weeks ago so I'm still recovering from that so I'm not able to do alot exercise wise. I work out with my physiotherapist to stenghten my legs so that's helping. We do have a bicycle here and I actually used it yesterday so I'm proud of myself for that.

Anyway, still watching what I eat and I'm off for my official weight-in on Wednesday. Have a good week ladies! :)
Thanks for the encouragement lady!

I do love the gym once I'm in a routine, its just that i'm out that routine for about 8 months now, so its going to be hard getting back into it. But knowing what I can achieve when I put my mind to it should hopefully get me through it! cheesy.gif

Well done for using your bicycle - remember, any exercise is better than no exercise! cheesy.gif

Welcome to the thread Amelia - st lucia sounds like absolute heaven!

We are getting married at moon palace, and we are hoping to get 28th May 2010!

I'm not going to any classes either - I am doing it by watching what i'm eating, cutting out the bad stuff, and trying to get fit. It's more a healthy eating plan, because my diet last year was horrendous!

Well good luck ladies, and i'll see you all back here next week! Hopefully with some good news! cheesy.gif

I feel the same way. I was getting up at 5:30 a.m. and going to the gym before work for a while and I was feeling SO good! I am NOT a morning person either but once I started getting up and making myself go no matter how tired I was it got to a point where I couldn't wait to go. Then I got an achilles injury and it came to a complete stop. So now I'm trying to get back into it full force. I was up late last night so I wasn't able to go this morning before work, but I did play tennis with my daughters yesterday and plan on going running tonight with my oldest (she takes plesure in dragging me out in the cold when she knows I prefer the treadmill! LOL). Like you said, any excercise is better than none :) muscle.gif

Welcome Amelia!

St Lucia sounds amazing! We're planning our wedding for January 2010 in Jamaica. I'm getting excited as I'm sure you are.

I was so happy too when I saw this thread. It's great to be able to chat with everyone and send encouragements. Good luck with the weight loss! :)

I guess with all of the modifications I've made to it I should call it Taco flavored Vegetable soup now...lol :) I know it probably sounds weird to add zucchini to taco soup but I think it really beefs up the soup and it actually turns out more of like a chili than a soup. Adding more vegetables makes the soup/chili less points per serving too. This recipe is only 2 pts. per serving. Here it is in case anyone wants it:

Taco Vegetable Soup/Chili
16 servings
1C per serving
2 Pts. per serving

Ingredients:

5 C. diced carrots
1 C. diced onion
4 C. dicedq zucchini
7 oz can Diced green chiles
1 lb. Ground Turkey browned
29 oz can (3 1/2 C.) Pinto Beans (strained)
1 14.5 oz. can Diced Tomatoes
1 can (3 1/2 C.) yellow corn
1 packet taco seasoning
1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning mix
4 C fat-free chicken broth

Instructions

In a large pot brown ground turkey with onion. Add the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 1 hr.

My kids don't like vegetables and even they like it! I usually grab one to take to work and eat it with a sandwich for lunch. I also like to have a cup for a snack if I get hungry in the evening. It's very filling for 2 points.
OMG! Thank you so much, it sounds amazing. I'll definitely buy the ingredients for this. And only 2 points? That's great!!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
