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!!
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!

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

        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!

        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 :)

          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!!!

                Congrats on the weight loss!!!!! Good for you.

                I am having such a hard time with this right now. I was doing amazing before my knee surgery and now, I just can't get back into it. We had chinese last night, ate out again tonight, had DQ also then popcorn (girls night with my cousin). Anyway, it's very difficult but tomorrow I will get right back into it.

                I'm rootin' for ya Mrs D To Be!! you can do it!
