Hey Goobermom your weight loss has been such an inspiration! I'm joining WW tomorrow! I'm planning on IVF in March and would like to lose some weight in the meantime. So I figure in 3 months I can safely lose about 15 to 20 pounds, right?

What was it about WWs that helped you be successful?

Thanks for the inspiration!

:) you put a smile on my face! i am glad that my sharing has been inspirational! Thanks!!
ww works for me because you are not deprived of anything. you can eat what you like, in moderation or in a healthy balance (i love chips and sugar treats, which i can still have!). if i eat out for lunch and it is not the most healthy, i know i will have my big salad for supper. it encourages fruits and veggies, which i love but you don't have to eat them. you can have a drink but you will be more insightful into how much that impacts your diet. the group i am in is very fun and supportive. there are all sizes there...those that need to lose 15 lbs and those that need to lose a 100. one lady tonight shared that she has been coming for 2.5 years and will continue to do so, as it will continue to support her in living a long healthy life (and she looks fabulous!!). :) you don't have to share at all in our group, as they have a short "lesson"/topic each week, but you can share examples or things that have helped you out. if you exercise, that allows you to eat more also! lol did i answer your questions? :)

and i think you could reach your goal prior to IVF and how wonderful that will be for your body!! my current RE said even losing 10 lbs is a very positive thing when trying to conceive!

i would love to hear how you are do on losing and get closer to your IVF cycle!!
:) i lost another 1.2 lbs this week (total 22.2 lbs), even with the thanksgiving holiday!! i excercised for a total of 2.5 hours this week (walking on the treadmill).

Thanks for the information goobermom! I've been debating joining WWs for a few weeks now and I think that your success definitely helped me decide to join today! A former co-worker of mine started WWs and within a year (maybe 1.5 years) she lost 80 pounds and is now running in 5Ks! She's even a leader at her local WWs center.

I'm looking forward the the support the meetings offer and I'll definitely keep you posted. And I hope you continue to keep us posted too! Congratulations on your success! Amazing to lose weight Thanksgiving week!

:D :D :D :D :D :D

Well got started on my new eating habits yesterday. I am eating about 1200 calories a day and exercising 3 times a week. Next week in addition to my cardio I will add some weights.

confession: i lost nothing this week....i stayed exactly the same. this most likely is the result of very little exercise this week and lost of eating (cake, cupcakes, turkey sandwiches, zucchini bread...).
here's to hoping the next couple weeks (including christmas) go better!!

well, i gained this week. i am not beating myself up too bad, as i did enjoy lots of christmas goodies! i will get back to it and will lose next week...though i am worried about what the progesterone i am taking will do, as in the past i typically gained a bit of weight/bloat when taking it, and i only took in once/day and now i am taking it 3x/day :shock:

Excuses: eating lots of food and lots of holiday treats, eating whatever meals i wanted without restraint, eating out, drinking regular soda, and not exercising at all :(
i will get going again tomorrow!! this week i will do better!!! i will re-lose the 4.2 lbs i have gained in the last two weeks!!
i think i can~i think i can~i think i can~ I KNOW I CAN!!! :D
