    make changes you can live with forever. I have decided that I'm not going to give up sweets forever. I did that before and lost 35 lbs, but it didn't stay off because giving up sweets is not something I'm willing to do. I'll work out more if I need to, but that's one of the things I'm not willing to live without. I am willing to live with smaller portions, eating more veggies and fruit, cutting out many grains and drinking more water.
    You have to find what works for you and be able to live with your changes/choices. Everyone is different. I won't pass up a homemade chocolate chip cookie. I won't eat 10, but if someone makes some I'll eat one.
    Just figure out what you can live with forever.

    Veronica- of course you're right about the calories in-out. Weightwatchers does seem to give lower point values to high-fiber foods, so that a cup of whole wheat spaghetti is less than a cup of regular spaghetti.
    My Trader Joe's Organic Whole Wheat Penne is 210 calories per 3/4 cup. My Barilla regular penne is 200 calories for the same amount. 3/4 cup of pasta does not look like much on a plate and unless you're measuring, I think it's one of those things that it's really easy to eat more of than you think you are.

    Sorry- to clarify- I meant- Weightwatchers counts it as fewer points....its not lower in calories

    Just read this, and I agree - know it's true for me. More exercise = more hunger = more eating. But it's still good for ya!

    Yeah, the guy who weighed me in at Weight Watchers was trying to be supportive about my gain, and I had to shuush him like, dude, it's ok, I was dehydrated after a bigass race, then I refed and prolly had a glycogen puff as well as a salt bloat, not to mention a few celebratory beers...

    Okay, ready to start participating again. I'm at 150 as of today. I'll weigh-in again on Friday.

    Don't really have a goal in mind for the end, just want to see continual improvement in firming up and slimming down. I have a huge training routine right now (for me). I'm simultaneously training for a mountain bike race and 25k run. Finding the proper balance between staying properly fueled and maintain a reasonable calorie deficit for weight loss is a continual challenge. But I'm figuring it out

    227.0

    I've been walking five miles a day on the treadmill for nearly two weeks - 90 minutes, so I know that's not a blistering pace, but it's good for me.

    According to LoseIt!, I've had an average of 500-800 calorie deficit every day. I've nearly doubled my liquid (water/tea/EmergenC) intake and I've upped my fiber.

    So, 227 every single morning this week.

    Roxy, off to the treadmill (with the cushiness turned up so I don't hurt my MCL again - remember the "5K a Day in August" plan that crashed and burned on day five?)
