      I know, LOL...it will be long. But then it will be cool to be able to look back at our progress too.

      So this is the last weekend to go crazy!

        I go to Thursday meetings. I did want to say to people who are just starting meetings - try out a few different days/time so you can try out different leaders. I did this and I found one that I love so much and is hilarious, so in-tuned to what everyone (including her) is going through and is motivating - not just about WW but about treating yourself well. Just my suggestion. I know if I stuck with the lady I went to the first time I defintiely wouldn't have kept going... she was BORING!

        OK, so I confess i skipped my weigh in last week! I ended up drinking too much wine with friends wednesday nigth and then of course I ate chips and dips, and all sorts of non-diet friendly stuff. Anyway I am hopefully back on track now so I hope for a stay the same or loss for Thursday...

        Oh, and no matter what week you're on get that Week 3 or 4 booklet with the exercise plan - it is SO helpful! I plan on getting my points through power yoga, stationary bike and wallking...

        Jilly - not only does muscle weigh more than fat but SORE MUSCLES HOLD WATER!!! Which means your loss will probably show up next week once your muscles "heal." stay strong and keep at it. You will definitely lose more weight by eating right AND exercising in the long run... and that's what counts!

        On that note I am going to try and hop onto the bike before going out tonight but I just can't get up from the computer!

            We are having a dinner party tonight (patiently waiting for them right now). I am going to my famouse artichoke cheese dip without any guilt. Yummy! Oh, I can't forget the wine, we just opened it so it can breathe.

                  MMmm... Yum! Ruth Chris, is one of our favorite steak houses!

                  So, I was 'fairly' good tonight. After we went furniture shopping we went to dinner and I caved (at Steve's insistence), and had one drink. Only 1 though. Much better than a typical Saturday night.

                  I do have one question though. Steve said that Barcardi and diet coke is 0 calories (not sure if it's true), but if so why does the WW calculator, calculate them at 2 points?

                    Oooh, thanks for that Kash, I didn't know that, although I did so bad this week that I'm sure it was all for nothing!! I'm going to start going to meetings, I'm pretty sure they're on monday nights.

                    All alcohol has calories, I believe a shot of bacardi is around 90 calories or so?

                    So, I usually try to have drinks that I can use a non calorie mixer, like Diet Coke, Soda water, or my favorite, crystal light.

                    Or have wine, if I'm at home, I'll just measure out a glass of wine.

                      Thanks... I knew 0 calories was too good to be true! :-)
