I weighed in this morning, and I've lost 4 pounds since last Monday!  8)

Lynne, your guidelines sound perfect.  I took yoga twice last week and stuck to my WW points.  My knees and back feel marginally better, but I'm sore from the exercise, too.  Unfortunately, I'm missing yoga today because I'm home with a sore throat and nascent cold.  It's good to be back in the groove, though.

I've been drinking whole milk, using real cream in my coffee, etc... because I'm being paranoid about not getting enough Ca.  It seems to dampen the appetite even though it's more calories.

Try going down to 2% now.  There's a lot of fat in whole milk along with that calcium.

Meryl - I'm glad you're having luck with the WW points.  I love their on-line points counter and other tools.  I've used it a couple of times over the years, but basically all it does is tell me where I go wrong.  I don't have any problems until dinnertime, then it's a free-for-all. 

Yep, dinner's a problem, but if you're writing down your points, there's more of an incentive to stick to them.  I didn't care for the online point-keeping for some reason.  The booklet works better for me.  I keep it handy by my bedside along with the points-counting pamphlet.

We're in about the same place weight-wise.  I'd like to get down to 150, too. 

Chuck, I've been worried about you not keeping up the program.  Glad to hear you're back on it, too.  Good luck to us all!  8)

Yaaaaaaaaay!  Congrats Meryl!

Yeah, I fell off the wagon, but I've picked it back up before too much damage has occured.  I actually weighed myself on Saturday and I was 219.5, so by today I've lost 1.5 pounds.  I've watched what I've eaten very closely, and I'm exercising more.

You 'liciouses are great inspiration. I think I need to check in here a couple of times a day.

I refuse to weigh myself yet because it will just depress me. The past week went well and I am adding new good habits-focusing on changing a non-productive habit-each week. It seems to be working.

Tomorrow morning I am going to take a load of aleve and try to work out. Hopefully my back doesn't tell me "oh HELL no!!"

((((Roux))))

Somebody said something at WW that struck me as helpful.  Talking about eating less, she said she'd "made peace with it."  I think of that when I feel bummed that I have to do it.

I'm glad you're treading the path with us.  :-*

Back on the right track.  1 pound gone, down to 216.

I've decided to start thinking in terms of days. How many days I have to stay on track to lose the amount of weight I'd like to lose. It's probably about 100. Then, I figure, I can take a sort of 12-step-program "just for today" approach.

So I have two days down, 98 or so to go.

The only catch is, they have to be mostly consecutive.  ;D

Yeah, but on the 101st day, I have blown it big time.
