    Thats fantastic, keep up the good work!!

    wow im so impressed with you! 11.6 pounds in 3 weeks!

    i weighed in this morning, and i didnt lose any this week, but then i didnt gain any either, so i guess thats good. i did use some flex points this past week though...maybe i wont do that again... i am at 144 now and would like to be at about 125-130 for my wedding in 5 months.

      20 pounds in 3 months is totally doable on WW! Think of it this way - you have 24 weeks... that's less than a pound a week! I lost 10 pounds right before my wedding on WW and loved it. Then of course I stopped counting and put it back on over 6 months and 2 long vacations... anyway I'm back and right now I'm 5 pounds down from my "high" weight.

      Yiiipppppeeeee! Sounds like you are well on your way. I think signing up can be one of the hardest steps to make. It's challenging for the first couple of weeks until you can figure out what you can/should eat, etc. There's people in my WW who have lost over 100 and are still going - so 50s not bad!

          Last night was my first night back in the gym in about a year. But, I have been doing a yoga class twice a week.

          I've been watching and monitoring my food intake very closely. WW has a lot of really yummy recipes so that has helped too.
          OMG - That is FANTASTIC! I am SO impressed! What kind of yoga are do you doing?

            Last week I had only lost a pound, but this week more came off. Most of the 11 came off in the first week. Don't feel bad about using flex points... I think of them as my "living a normal life" points. If you cut everything out you will never stay on the diet.

            This week the main thing I did different was Significantly cut out alcohol consumption. I think I only had 2 drinks total all week.

            Thanks to everyone for all the support!

So that would limit my restrictions big time as far as the premade foods. But if you can eat your own than I think it would work. Hopefully!! Thanks for all your great info though, you have been super helpful!
              Celiac's disease, right (I probably slaughtered the spelling of that!!)

              I have a friend whose 5 year old daughter has had it since she was really little, so I've seen and heard about all the things she can't have. It seems like everything is off limits, it must be so hard to find things to eat!!

              WW would work well for you in this case because you can eat your own food.

              thanks for the encouragement! i almost never drink to begin with so that takes care of that. i'm allergic to beer and have a very very sensitive stomach and digestive system so more than one glass of white wine or one cocktail makes me really sick usually. i cant even drink red wine at all, my doctor said i am probably allergic to the tannins, because i have gotten very ill the few times i drank red with specific kinds of stomach pains, so my doc said to just stay away from red wine. my FI doesnt drink hardly at all either, so i never feel bad about not being much of a drinker. i just switch to sparkling water after i've had my alcohol.

              and i agree not using ANY flex points makes it much harder to do, but then i was seeing more results in the first 3 weeks when i didnt use flex points. i was really really hormonal this week though, and i was bad and bought those softstix pretzels you heat up in the microwave and they have cheese in the middle.... i ate 3/4 of the box on wednesday, and a serving size is 2. i ate 8. and then my FI went to CVS last night and brought home a cadbury creme egg for me since he knows theyre my favorite easter candy. i crave really bad, greasy, salty foods when I have my period. and like clockwork, every month the week i start PMSing, i crave french fries and a chocolate shake. anybody know a way to curb that?

                I wish I knew a way to curb it because I get the same types of cravings! Usually its the week before my period when I feel like I could eat a house and still be hungry!

                I really hope there is a cure for this....

                  I was seriously just talking about this at work I work in a medical office and all us girls are always PMSing at the same time and eat a CRAZY amount of food and laugh because were still starving.. they said its something to do with hormones.... not sure what though.


                  What is it in the beer that your are allergic to. JW b/c I have an allergy it also!
