    Weight Watchers support

    Maybe a thread like this with others who are doing WW will be a good thing and help keep us all on track!

    and I'll start :lol:

    A little bit about me. I'm Vickie, mommy to Hannah. I've never been skinny (most of my family is overweight) but since having Hannah I've really let things slide and am not happy. So time to do something about it! After all it's no one's fault but my own if I don't make changes! I'm married to Stan who is skinny! And tall :rofl: and is one of those people who can eat pretty much whatever he wants. Luckily he is a good guy though and is really on board with the plan and is even portioning his own food and not having as many snacks and sweet things (well around me at least :haha:0

    So far I really like the plan. I joined the Online group as I don't have a car to get to meetings and don't fancy waiting on a bus in the dark alone :lol: It's great though. They have an online calculator that helps you keep track of your points through the day.

    My daily point allowance is 31 right now with 35 "extra" points for the week. I need to buy a scale to do at home weekly weigh ins so am not certain of my weight right now. Planning to do that this weekend :) as well as buying some healthy foods!

    Good luck Vickie! :flower:

    WW is GREAT, I love it! esource is really good too online, you can put your weight in online and it builds a little graph, I also type what I've eaten in my planner on there as I hate writing lol

    I've only done one recipe so far! We really need to go grocery shopping (payday is Friday :lol:) and until than I'm stuck with what's in the house :dohh: and there's not much in the house :rofl:

    what do you all do for "treats"? I was thinking of buying some of the chocolate pudding cups (fat free of course :lol:) and they have some decent looking popcorn recipes on there that we are planning to try :D

    I've been doing WW since September and have lost 21 Pounds so far :)

    My favourite things are
    *0-Point soup made with butternut squash, red pepper, red onion, 1-2 carrots and lots of chilli powder :)
    *a Muller Light Yogurt that was in the freezer all day as it has a lovely almost icecream-like texture and only 1.5 Points.
    *1 mini pot/or 50g Sainsbury's 'Good to You' Hummus with a Pitta bread and lots of carrots=4 points *yum* I love hummus!

    plan on sampling it tonight :lol:

    though when I did the online calculator it says 2 points instead of 1 so I'll go with that rather than what I saw online as it's probably more accurate :shrug:

    well I weighed in this morning and from my estimated weight of last week (wasn't 100% positive so went by last doctor's visit in May!) I've lost 5 pounds :wohoo: I think I'd be more excited if I actually knew that was what I lost :haha:

    Go Girls Go!!! You can all do it. I have been on WW since July of 08 and I am at 76 lbs gone for ever!!!! The last few pounds have been the hardest...and I have not really followed program lately so that is why. but this week I am by the book and I am expecting great results. I will hit goal this week or next week :wohoo:

    Here is a great tip that my mom and I go by... We always say... Dont train like a Sumo ... make sure you eat breakfast...

    Here is how Sumo's train:
    ----------------------------------------
    Sumo Wrestlers: This is How You Get Fat

    There's only one sport where they actually aim to gain as much body fat as possible: Sumo Wrestling. According to this article - here is what a sumo wrestler does to get fat:


    1. Skip breakfast. By depriving their bodies of food after eight hours of sleep, their metabolic rates stay low.


    2. Exercise on an empty stomach. If their bodies have
    no food, their metabolic thermostats are turned down even lower to conserve fuel.

    3. Take a nap after eating. The Sumo secret for gaining weight is that, after eating, they sleep for at least four hours.

    4. Eat late in the day. Going to bed with full stomachs means that their bodies must respond to the huge flood of nutrients with a rush of insulin, forcing their bodies to store some of it in the cells as fat instead of in the muscles and organs as nutrients.

    5. Always eat with others in a social atmosphere. According to leading researchers, a meal eaten with others can be at least 44 percent larger and with 30 percent more calories and fat.
