When I started my scale was fluctuating between 242-240. A month and a half later I'm down almost 10 pounds to 232. That's with having loads of "cheating" inbetween. All and all I'm pretty happy, and most of all happy with weight watchers!

Good Job! I need to start watching more closely what I am eating. I am more aware of it now but I need to practice my self control. Not feeling super well self esteem wise-I feel as though even though I am exercising more I'm not getting anywhere, whereas before being pregnant when I did exercise I got results a bit more quickly. Just needing a little pick me up. My fiance is telling me that I still look the same but I just feel blech and a little chubbier and I don't like it. I sent a belly photo to one of my friends I haven't seen in a few months and she even said she sees no change except for a big belly which is nice to hear, but granted i still don't feel that wonderful pregnancy goddes glow that lots of people talk about. all i want to do is sleep and not hurt all the flippin time. ok complaining done.

You have to learn how to fall before you can learn how to ride~

Does anyone have my fitness pal? I downloaded it because the weight watchers app doesn't have horseback riding so I figured I could transfer the calories into my WW app.

Add me if you'd like HHeim02

Actually it does, it has walking, trotting and "galloping". It also has grooming and barn cleaning (or something like that)

Decided to join in the fun here. I'm plus sized now that I hit middle age. Never used to have to worry about it, but I guess I do now. About 14 days ago I put down a can of Coke and haven't had another!I been drinking a gallon of water every day instead. It's ok if you get it real cold with lots of ice,lol. The water makes me not hungry which is good! I don't weight myself, but I was getting on up there, size 18 jeans were getting tight!
Well since I been off Cokes and on water, i started doing sit ups and leg exercises as well as working with dumbells too, and when I put my old jeans on that was getting tight yesterday, they fit great!
I just got to keep on

I'm 31, 5'7", and 195. I gained almost 70 pounds when I was pregnant, and I never lost it all. My short term goal is 180 by the middle of June. My long term goal is to get to 160.

I've been watching what I eat lately, in large part for my son. I have almost completely eliminated convenience foods from the house. I've found that if I can watch my portion sizes and not snack for a couple of weeks, it gets a lot easier pretty quickly.

Learning never stops

For those of you who run or have treadmills here something to try - walk super slow. It is amazing the workout the legs get in almost no time and no pounding of the joints. My legs were burning in less than 5 min.
