      So glad someone bumped this up for me to see. I'll add on...

      I'm trying to lose about 40-50 lbs (want to lose 30-40 by the wedding), and I just recommitted to WW. I lost 10 lbs earlier this year then got sidetracked, but I'm back to it. My second (the major one) fitting is in a month so I'd like to lose as much as possible between now and then.

      I'm doing the WW Core plan, running 2-3x's a week, walking 1-2x's a week and doing pilates classes 2-4x's a week. This is my 3rd week. I only lost 2 lbs the first 2 weeks, but I do feel like my body is changing so we'll see.

          I'm with you too Michelle. I NEED to lose 40 pounds (by the wedding.) It is just UNACCEPTABLE how heavy I am right now. A good friend of mine and I were once both on WW at the same time and we started our own little support system. We would email each other everyday with the foods we ate and the amount of points it was. It was a great way to learn about foods I wouldn't normally have eaten that were in my point range. My friend is pregnant now so I need additional support.

          So here I go. Today, July 19th - Goal is to stay under 1700 calories.

          Breakfast - cereal with skim milk = 400 calories
          Mid morning snack - a banana = 100 calories
          Lunch - veggie burger on a roll with a side of veggies = 650 calories
          Mid afternoon snack - 100 calorie pack of chips o'hoy
          Dinner - WW Rice and Beans meal = 300 calories (and really yummy)

          Ok, so total calories for the day (if I don't cave and grab real cookies from the vending machine here) is 1550 - not bad.

            I am so bad....I just can't be strict....I did it last month...what is my problem!!!!

            Okay so I am trying to stay under 1200 calories a day and total by the time of my wedding I want to loose 30 lbs but I would be happy with 20...so that is my first goal.

            Okay here is what I am eating today...

            Breakfast: Starbucks non-fat latte (grande) = 165 calories
            Quaker oatmeal raisin bar = 90 calories
            Lunch: WW macaroni & cheese = 300 c
            1 slice of SD Bread = 50 c
            snack pack of carrots = 40 c
            Snack: Banana = 80 c
            Nectarine = 50c
            Dinner: Subway 6 in turkey (no cheese) = 280

            Total: 1055...okay I might throw in a bag of baked chips at subway!!

            We will see how that goes!

              Ok, here are some other good tricks:

              1. Brush your teeth after you eat. This sometimes makes you think twice about messing up your fresh breath with a snack.

              2. Keep gum on you at all times. Keeps you chewing but with no calories.

              3. When you get a craving for something sweet, grab a diet sode (if you like diet soda.) You'll end up saving the calories and points or other things.

              4. Make it a point not to eat after 7:30PM - no matter what. Oprah's trainer says you need to get used to going to bed hungry.

              5. Start a Weight Loss Pool. We did it at work. 8 of us each put in $200 and dieted for 13 weeks. (Nothing motivates me more than if you wave some money under my nose.) I actually ended up winning and used the money for new shoes - seriously!!!

                Good points Jen...I always have gum...sugar free extra! I don't like diet soda personally...I only drink water. But I'm sure I can snack on something else.

                My schedule is so crazy that I eat at all hours...I do need to stop that though. I have to sit in a class until 10:30 two nights a week and I tend to snack in class because I try to stay awake and get bored!! I have started bringing my laptop though so I can be on the forum during class instead! :) Once addition to another! :)

                About the pool love it! I did it at my old job and it works and it's fun and motivating!! To bad there wasn't an easy way to do it on here!!

                  One thing I always find when I'm on WW is that I'm always hungry. But I started to try to eat more protein and less carbs, while still doing WW and it really helps you not to be so hungry. I still eat carbs, I just try to limit my intake during the day.

                    I really need to get back on track. Last year for my FI sister's weddign I lost 30lbs doing WW. Unfortunately I have gained almost all of it back. I won't go shopping for a dress until I lose at least 10lbs first. May be it woul dbe could if we could post our food intake and exercise log. I need the motivation!!!
                    Good luck girls!

                      Has anyone tried the new stuffed sandwich at Subway? What's the deal? Is it just new bread and you can make any sandwich out of it, or is it a whole new sandwich Normally, I'm in Subway a few times a week but I haven't been in awhile. I was going to go today and check out this new sandwich. It looks very interesting.

                      Goal: Calories for the day to not exceed 1700

                      Breakfast: Cereal with skim milk = 400 calories
                      Morning Snack: Banana = 100 calories
                      Lunch: Subway's veggie sandwich on a 6" wheat with honey mustard, light chips and a diet coke = 350 calories
                      Afternoon Snack: 100 calorie pack of chip's o'hoy
                      Dinner: Who knows, we're probably going out to eat, but I'll keep it under 750 calories
