    Hi ladies,

     

    I see there's a thread for WW girls for 2011 but I don't see one for 2012 brides yet. I need motivation to stick to the plan! I started WW in January (spurred by my engagement at Christmas) and it was working! I lost 15 lbs and am now fitting into clothes that haven't fit in over a year. Now I have been slacking on tracking my points and I'm stuck. I need to get back on track. My goal is to lose another 10 lbs by the end of July and then hopefully 15 more before the wedding in April 2012. I feel like these goals are attainable. I keep saying I'll  get back on track tomorrow! Help! Haha. Anyone else out there signed up to WW for 2012 weddings as well?

      I'm doing WW too for an April 2012 wedding!

       

      I'm also stuck at about 15 lbs, which is really great from changing nothing but eating habits, but I want to lose more! I'm finding it difficult to find certain random foods on the tracker. I bought an "off-label" tracker app which has a lot more restaurants on it, and that has made it a little easier.

       

      Do you do meetings or online only? Do you track on your phone or on paper?

       

      I think we're just seeing a plateau right now. It will pick up again if you stick with it! Especially as summer arrives and there more options to get out of the house and be active.

        I've been tracking on paper. I signed up for the meetings and got the calculator and all the start-up books, then I stopped going to the weekly meetings because they're so expensive, so I'm just kind of doing it on my own. I agree about the warm weather! I skipped the gym this week and instead got in some walks with the dogs and bike rides outside. Have you tried the WW frozen meals? I love those for lunches at work!

          three of my coworkers and I have been bringing lunch for each other (each person one day per week), which has really helped (though we failed miserably this week). That way, we know we'll have a healthy lunch but only have to make it once a week.

           

          I'm thinking of switching to the online only plan, but they want me to pay another sign-up fee to switch, which is irritating me to no end.

           

          I'm tracking 100% this week, so hopefully I can stay on track through the weekend!

            That's an awesome idea! I'm starting a new job on Monday and I get an hour lunch now, so I know I'll be tempted to eat out more. When I do I usually go to Extreme Pita though and stick with something light, like a grilled chicken pita with tzatziki instead of mayo, so I just have to keep on  track! I keep rewarding myself with food, so I give myself a treat day when I've done well, but I want to come up with something different. Maybe a new piece of clothes or something when I reach a goal. I've been setting little goals for myself so they're easier to reach, then when I reach it I set a new one.

              Hi there!

               

              I'm getting married in March 2012 and have also lost 15lbs on weight watchers thus far. LOL - I think 15lbs is about when you realize that there is no turning back. I decided to increase my workouts. I'm increasing my cardio (45-60min instead of 30-45min) and trying to lift weights more often. I went to the gym 7 days this week, but my goal is 5x a week.

               

              I'm attending the WW@Work Meetings at my job which is so convenient and 50% off. What is working for you all?

                Hi All! I am a WW Online member and need help staying on the wagon. I'm currently a unemployed, so I have had more time to go to the gym, and have lost weight. However, I need help sticking with the rules of the plan. Can anyone help me be more accountable and vice versa?

                  Hi ladies....I guess I am a WW lurker...lol.. I keep saying I'm going to join.  My fiance and I both need to lose weight.....I am just having a hard time getting motivated.  Any tips on how to just get started would be helpful.  I plan on joining WW online because I won't have the time to go to meetings....

                    Let's help each other. The most difficult part of starting will be the most difficult part throughout WW...tracking. My strategy is the eat well Sunday-Friday @ lunchtime, then I can eat pretty much anything for dinner Friday and all day Saturday. Please let me know if you would like a WW buddy.

                      I am also a March, 2012 bride and would like to lose 5 - 10 pounds, and basically just tone my problem areas (love handles, stomach, legs). I was going to join on line as well, they seem to have a special on right now. My problem is eating! I am constantly snacking on candy (as we speak!) and its really what's holding me back. I don't mind exercising, I am running a half marathon this weekend, but I just need the motivation from you girls to help me stay on track! Do you think it's worth it for me to sign up on line, even though I don't want to lose a large amount of weight?
