1-2 lbs a week is good, 3 lbs per week isn't so bad. I only dip into my 49 weekly points on weekends. But last night I had to use some because we went to a steakhouse for dinner for my hubby's birthday. My weekly points are 29. I don't always use all 29 sometimes I have 4 points left over by the end of the night. I would use my 49 points on weekends if I were you. I never use all 49 but I do use at least 10 out of the 49 points.

That makes sense.

I am not going to eat if I'm not hungry. Like right now, I still have seven points left - I didn't mean to, but I ended up skipping lunch and I hadn't had a big breakfast. I had a nice big salad loaded with all sorts of goodies including quinoa and boiled eggs, for dinner, and I'm having to FORCE down some yogurt because I know I need to get closer to what I'm supposed to be eating.

Hey, no worries on the extra points - I am leaving for a week of vacation in the morning! LOL

last night I had 13 points left over. That's unusual for me. But I wasn't too hungry and I ate alot of low point foods yesterday . I had a big cheat the night before even though I am considered "On Program" and I felt very bloated, so I went back on program next morning. I always do that, I always go back strict the next day. In past years I would cheat on WW then blow the program for the next 3 days. Not this time. I have a sweet 16 party for my niece tonight and I plan to do alot of dancing to earn activity points. I won't focus on the food as much.

I have been doing Weight Watchers for the last five months, and have lost 31 pounds. The last two months have been a struggle, and I haven't lost very much, but I have been sticking with it and weighing in every week. I had stopped tracking my points for awhile, but last week I recommitted to it. I only used 1 extra point and exercised an hour every day, and only lost 1.6 pounds. I am sticking with it, though. I do need to do a better job of eating the right foods and not just foods that fit into my point allowance.

I know how to lose weight, but I really enjoy the meetings. I also like weighing in once a week, as I have decided not to keep a scale in the house. It just makes it worse for me if I have a scale to get on and obsess over every day.

1.6 lbs is a good loss for a week. Keep writing down what you eat and hang in there. You did not gain it fast, there is no reason to think that you would lose it fast. Its a process, and you are doing everything right.

Oh, I know. I am in a pretty good place about it mentally, even the couple times I have had a gain. I have just had bigger losses in weeks where I didn't exercise nearly as much. A loss is a loss, though, and I will take it.

I had a gain this week 2 lbs I went out to eat Thursday night and indulged and last night at my neices sweet 16 I ate foods I normally do not eat.My SIL cooked all of the food except the 2 dishes we brought and the Hero she had. She is a great cook and her mac and cheese is the best I have ever had and I had a little too much of that and dessert last night. But I weighed in at a meeting today and went back on track today. I even went back on track all day Friday and half of Saturday. Thats is one thing I am committed to doing, go right back on track after having a big meal at a restaurant or party. I hope to loose this next week because this 2 lbs I gained was the 2 lbs I had lost 2 weeks ago.

You have a great attitude Lubby. A gain can be so disheartening. What do you do for exercise? This may be the perfect time to switch things up. If you can do something different at a good intensity level you will really rev your metabolism and I bet you will knock that 2lbs back very easy.

No exercise, in fact I only did excercise the first 6 months of WW. I do other Stuff around the house that could be considered "Activity".

Wow, I am so proud of everyone here who is sticking with WW! I love the attitudes! The meetings are very helpful.

I have a success to report! I went on vacation last week and didn't keep up with my points "officially" but I did watch what I ate pretty well, except for one really bad Italian food splurge! Hey, it's VACATION.

Anyway, I had gained a couple of pounds when I weighed the morning after we got in (very late the night before). I was a little disheartened, but noticed my feet looked swollen. Lo and behold, by the next day, I had lost that gained weight, and by today I had lost another pound! So Tuesday is my meeting, and I think I will be able to post a LOSS the week after a weeklong vacation - which was my goal!

Twenty five pounds to go! I just went over the 10 pound mark!
