    I weighed in tonight and lost another 2.2 pounds. That is 9 so far for me. Now I am starting to collect ww cookbooks so I can have new recipes to replace the other higher fat ones we have been eating. Of course, I usually change the recipes in some way or another, but it is fun.

    Hi All!

    Well after last week's gain and all the stress I've been going thru at home and with school, I managed to lose 3.2lbs! I'm down a total of 12.2 pounds!

    Congrats to everyone who lost this week!

    "We've all been there" and "Keep trying" to those who gained!

    Have a happy week!

    Hi everyone - I hope you don't mind me jumping in here.

    I've decided to join Weight Watchers online with my daughter. Her pediatrician has recommended it, because we have done the dietician route with her, food journal, etc., but it's not working. She's 13, and after a lot of soul-searching and researching programs, like OA and a few others, she has decided on this. I decided to join with her. I'm a Type 1 diabetic on an insulin pump, and most of you know how difficult it is to lose, but it's doubly bad when you're on insulin, since its an antagonist to weight loss. I only have about 20 to lose, which I'd like to do before I have to put my bulging bottom into scrubs in September. :chuckle My daughter has quite a bit more to lose. We've had all the blood work done on her to make sure there is no endocrine problem for her weight gain, and there isn't. She's a very active girl, no couch potato here - snowboards every day, basketball, softball, bike riding, horses, etc., but she just cannot lose weight, and in fact keeps gaining.

    So I just thought I'd introduce myself for those I haven't met yet on the boards. I've been here a few months, and just love the people here. They have been so supportive in my quest for nursing school, and any problem relating to that that seems to pop up (and boy, do they ever! :chuckle )

    We will both be doing the online version, since we live in the boonies of NH, and the only nighttime meetings are about 45 min. from here, and I'm in school at night. We'll give it a go for the spring and summer and see how she does - me also, but it's mainly just so she'll have a "buddy" and someone to help her count the points and stuff initially.

    Any advice/tips for the online program, or WW in general, would be greatly appreciated. When I get a moment, I'm going to go through this post and look at past messages.

    I weighed in last night and lost another 2.6 pounds. So far, that makes 11.6. I would never have believed that it could be this easy. I wish I had done it before, but I probably wasn't ready to be completely committed.

    I weighed in on monday and i lost 1.8 lbs for my first week since coming back. I sure hope i keep seeing progress. 150/148/125. :hatparty:

    Welcome wannabeanRN. I'm also doing WW online too. Just don't have time for meetings either. Don't forget to keep us posted on your progress. Also are you using WW message boards for support too? I've visited their message boards and it seems there is good people there to provide support too. They could possibly help in any questions about doing this online. Because this is my second week doing WW online I sure don't have much advise on how to get the most of the online version. I'm still learning too.
    Everyone have a healthy week.

    Thanks smiley. I just signed up today, and am still making my way around the site.

    I couldn't find this anywhere, but with the online version, do you get a points packet or anything in the mail? I can see it's going to be a pain in the rear to run to the computer and find out what each food item is worth for myself and my daughter (though maybe that will count as exercise, as the 'puter is upstairs! LOL) I printed out some stuff and will keep a folder in the kitchen, but just wasn't sure what I'd get in the mail, if anything.

    Also, what are the 3 numbers? Start weight/current/goal? Maybe? I went to the low end of what my range is, but I think that may be too much for me. A few years ago I was a size 6 at 135, but it said my low-end goal weight was 126.9. I think that I may look emaciated. Anyway, my current numbers are 165/165/135 (not 126, as they say. I'm going to change that!).

    Also, I signed up with my "good" email addy, not a junky one. I'm not going to get spammed or anything from them, will I? I detest signing up and paying good money, only to have my email sold and then on everyone's list. I just got DSL, so it's a new one I'm trying hard to "protect" if YKWIM!! :chuckle I did opt out of receiving the email letter. I figure it's probably all posted on the site anyway, and the less I receive email-wise, the better.

    I haven't recieved any packet from WW about the points in the mail. I not sure if i will. However when I was with WW last year I had bought their welcome package at one of their meetings. it included a book with points foods we usually eat like how many pts ground beef would be. and it also had a book w/ resturants and pts for their products. It cost around $20. this is so helpful to me. also when i went to the meeting i got a thing for free that calculates points so i dont have to run to the puter to figure pt values. I have seen these things for sale on ebay. mind you you may pay a higher price on ebay than just purchasing it from a WW meetings.

    I hope this helps you. I would highly recommend getting those books and a pt calculator. I would be lost with out them. I saw on WW website though they sold this stuff in a big welcome package but it was around $100. it had alot of stuff in the package though. however it was a little pricey.

    yes the three numbers are start weight/current/goal.

    I haven't been spamed because of them. I also opted out for email newsletter however i still recieve things from them in my email. I also made sure in my profile that my email address wasn't available too. So far so good on that.
