    i dont go to the meetings so i had to share with someone! i started last weds and in the first week ive lost at least 5 lbs. i didnt weigh when i started cause i thought it would be too discouraging, but im down 5lbs from what i weighed a few weeks BEFORE christmas when i went to the dr. so im guessing i was up from that weight after christmas.

    the best thing is its the easiest "diet" ive ever done. because its not really a diet but changing the way you eat. i cant believe how much i was eating AND why i was eating. probably almost never because i was hungry. ive felt so much better all week and some of my stomach issues seem to be already improving if even just a little.

    now i have to prepare for puerto vallarta. im hoping to get in a lot of exercise while im there and that will earn me a few more points each day. and drink lots of bottled water.

    thanks for listening!

      Holy low-fat cannoli! That is awesome news! I know I am up about 10 lbs from a few months ago.

      I'm not doing WW, but am starting back to the gym after a lull and my first weigh-in and measurements with a trainer are tonight. ugh.

      I have some serious work to do before April but last year I lost almost 20lb between Jan-Mar.

      Please keep us posted Leigh! Sounds like you truly are off to a rocking' start!!!!

      Keep up the great work!

          Great job Leigh! That is wonderful news...and how encouraging for you to keep on the program. Hmmm, maybe I should look into this?

            That's great Leigh! I tried to do WW online and it didn't work for me over the long term, because I had no one to be accountable to (I'm so bad like that), but just eating right for that little while made me feel so much better and the weight really does start to fall off!

                thanks guys! i may go to meetings too. but right now im good with the online. entering the points on there really works for me. and i can search for almost any food under the sun and it gives me the points. i add them in as i eat throughout the day. next step get back to a real workout routine!

                  Congrats Leigh! Keep up the good work :) Do you have an ultimate goal in mind? I'm looking foward to reading about your progress and how you like WW overall. I might have to give it a try after I have this baby!

                      hot damn - nice work, Leigh! i know that if i start working out or changing something aout my diet, and don't see results - i am so much less likely to stick with it. so that's awesome motivation when you see progress!
