    OK, so here is our official Weight Watchers thread (Part 1). This is for people are doing WW, have done WW, or any other weight management plan! It's also a thread for all those thin ladies who exercise and eat right to give the rest of us some tips on how to avoid bad foods and behaviors!

    So here are some starting questions:
    1) Are you trying to lose, maintain, tone/firm or gain weight?
    2) How many points (or calories, or carbs, or whatever it is you may be counting) are you aiming to eat a day?
    3) How much weight do you want to lose (if you DO want to lose)?
    4) When are you trying to lose by? For your wedding?

      So I'll go first!

      1) I want to lose!
      2) I don't know yet
      3) 15 - 20 pounds
      4) I would really like to ose 5 lbs. within the next month to make dress shopping less depressing. And I'd like to lose at least 15 by June 16, 2007 - my wedding!

        Ok, my turn! I plan to enroll in WW online this weekend- right now just trying to get the STD's in the mail!
        1) Lose, lose, lose!
        2) Whatever it takes to do #1, I'll post after I sign up...
        3) 25 lbs would be ideal, 15-20 is more realistic!
        4) Definitely by my wedding 5-7-07, 7 months away. Sooo, I figure if I lose 3 lbs per month, I can do it!

          3) I want to lose 10 lbs.
          4) I do want to have the weight off by the wedding, but I hope I can do that before.

            2) No idea on the point thing
            3) I guess I would be happy to loose 5 pounds
            4) Hmm I guess I would like to be in my ideal shape by Feb/March when I start my dress alterations.

              OK, so today I went anmd signed up for WW and I am really excited about it! There are two plans available:

              1) "Flex Points" where you are given a certain number of "points" you can eat based on your current weight (the more you weigh the more food your body needs to run!) and you can eat anything in the world - you just have to count every bite! What I do like is that you also get an extra 35 "points" to use during the week so if you have a craving for a cookie or a run and diet coke you can count it there without having to starve yourself before/after.

              2) The second option is called the "Core Program" - this is a specific list of foods that you can basically eat to your heart's content. There a a few items which are restricted to like one time a day (i.e. you can choose ONE of these items to eat once a day: whole wheat pasta, potato, whole wheat bread).

              And you can even switch back and forth (one week on one and one week on another) based on what kind of plans you have that week.

                I recommend the Flex Program. Portions are very important. So you you are like me and can't stop eating when it tastes good, go for the Flex program. Plus you can eat anything.

                Should we start a WW Folder for recipes and tips? If someone wants to start it, I can fill it with all sorts of tips, low points foods and tricks that helped me keep it interesting.

                  4) 29 days!!!!! OMG?!?!

                    rebecca, that is so exciting! we should definitely start a folder - I'll send Tammy a PM so she can put one up (I don't know how to). Are you doing any exercises for your arms? I find that free weights working your shoulders, biceps & triceps can really show some results pretty quickly...

                      Hi Kash,
                      Yes, I am doing a lot of push up and freeweights. Shoulders, chest, triceps and biceps. I'm also trying to do a lot of quats for my booty. :)

                      I am seeing my personal trainer 3 times a week until my wedding. So I just need to squeeze in an additional workout or two on my own.

                      I always blow my eating on the weekends though! It's is so hard for me to stay on a program when I'm at home!!

                      I'm alittle concerned when I get to Cabo too. We will be there 4 days before the wedding. I am going to have to be really good eating & drinking for 4 days in a hotel. That's hard! I can't get bloated or my dress won't fit.
