And thanks, Farm...I'm doing much better. Yesterday I used 1 flexpoint...thanks to my boss. I was all set to have my 6 pt. lunch & then he comes in with a baked potato for me. Not bad...but it had cheese, butter & sour cream on it!!! So I ate it (didn't want to make him mad) and counted ALLLLLLL those points. Had a 4 pt dinner to make up for it. Today's better. He's not going to be in until late afternoon! HAHA!
I had a bowl of oatmeal with a point's worth of brown sugar (4 pts total) for breakfast. That really helps fill me up. I've got my 6 pt lunch, an apple and a 2 pt. bar for the rest of the day...then I'll probably have a low point dinner.

My first goal was to lose 10% of my starting weight, and now I've done that and a little more. Best of all, it's enough to make a difference now in how I look as well as how I feel---even my co-workers and my family who see me every day are noticing the weight loss. I have a neck again.........my jaw line is beginning to come back.....my stomach no longer sticks out farther than my bosom......I've had to go down a couple of notches on my watchband.....and I actually nip in slightly at the waist now. Best of all, I move around much more easily, and can even bend over to tie my shoes without feeling like I'm gonna pass out! :hatparty: Hurray!! Almost a third of the way to my 100#-off-in-one-year goal!!
It's really tough going some days, though......there's all kinds of sweets around at work, all the time, and it is SOOOOOOO difficult to stay out of them! But I always force myself to remember what another BB member always says: nothing tastes as good as being thin feels. Well, I don't remember what being thin feels like, but I do know how much better I feel now with over thirty pounds gone, so that'll have to do for now.

I have a really hard time not using them almost everyday! I think that's the only way I can keep going with this...
mjlrn...very cool on the 32# gone!!! you are well on your way!!
I had my WI today I hit my 25# loss! So now I am 26% of the way there on my -100# journey (like you mjlrn!). I lost 1.4 bringing my total to -26# since 1/7/04. I wasn't really expecting the loss this week as I had a few cocktails on thurs. nite, had italian and sushi on Friday & a wedding on Saturday! The weekend pretty much wrote off those FP for the week.

I am new so maybe most of you have had something similar to this, but yesterday was my first day and I was so hungry. Now, after I just finished lunch, I am not. Anyways, I took a tortilla and spread on 1 tbsp of cream cheese. Then I added 2 oz. of turkey, 1 tsp. of sunflower seeds, 1 tsp finely chopped mushrooms and 1 tsp. finely chopped cucumber. Then I rolled it up and ate that and 1 cup of grapes and a diet coke with lime. Yum! And all together it was only 7 points. Not too bad. Since I think lunch will be the hardest meal to keep interesting and low in points, I thought maybe some of you might feel the same.
Mar 11, '04Yum! That sounds really good!
I usually bring a frozen "Lean Gourmet" meal to work with me. They list the points right on the box & they're usually between 99c-$1.30 at the grocery store. Can't beat that. I also load up on fruit. Just had a banana for snack, as a matter of fact!

Down officially 51 pounds . I want to lose about 40 more though. I am so ingrained in this program i can spew out point values for foods at will. I am a walking WW commercial :chuckle Anyone have any good recipes or meal ideas they want to share? I have quite a collection at this point

Back to being good....
Mar 13, '04Occupation: student Joined: Jan '02; Posts: 340; Likes: 4I started last Wednesday. I weighed myself this morning and I am down 6 pounds. I am a bit worried that it might not match the scale at the meeting, but I have been checking to make sure that the scale is at 0 before I step on it. I hope they match and I hope that I even lose a couple more pounds before then. My friend who has been OP for a while now has lost 22 pounds and she said that she lost 9 pounds the first week. My husband started the same day I did and he has already lost 9 pounds. What a stinker! Just kidding, I am happy for him. He also has much less weight to lose than I do.
Mar 13, '04kats...what kind of scale is it that you have? Is it a dr's scale like at the ww weigh-ins? I've got a regular "step-on" dial read scale & mine's 5 lbs off from the ones at ww. I went home right after my meeting one week & stepped on the scale to find out. Then I adjusted it so that it'd be correct.
Even so, congrats on starting ww! The weight will start coming off...quickly at first, then it'll slow down & become fairly steady.
