What helped a lot was the school holidays. It meant one of my tennis buddies was off work, so I played tennis Saturday, Monday and Tuesday, and that really burns a whole load of calories, and by not eating extra it seems to have given a nice boost to weight loss. I also kept up my regular weekday morning routine so had 2 hrs exercise at the Y each morning as well as tennis in the afternoon.

Just happy to be hangin' on to 123!
"Hangin' on" is a good thing to do. Enjoy the holiday season.

Same here. Gained ~5 pounds from eating bread and potatoes with friend.

Starting to go away now. Back on "Mediterranean Light".

You guys are admirable!!! I'm coasting through December, maintaining on my home scale, but not weighing in officially until January 6 (when I hope to have an epiphany about losing weight) and will dive back into the new WW program.

Great job!

It's comforting to lose a few extra lbs when a feast is on the horizon.

Dawg, I just hate it when I take those occasional meds that have weight gain as a side effect.

You guys are a hoot

We're still on vacation in Austin "cat sitting" again while DD and SIL drive down to Key West for a New Year's Day wedding, so won't be weighing in until the 13th.

I hope everyone has a Happy New Year.

Happy New Year, everyone!

I have no idea how I did over the holidays, because I haven't weighed in at WW yet (had fifteen days of holiday insanity, including lots of travel and a wedding!). But I feel good and my skinny jeans still fit. Still, I've been hitting the gym for an hour a day this week, just to up my chances of a happy reunion with the scale.

I, however, am not thrilled with the idea of learning a new WW system. The old one was working great for me. I don't really want to change, especially since I feel like I've done a good job of incorporating the dietary habits of the old model (and liked them, thank you very much). Part of the reason that I liked WW was it didn't feel like a fad diet, constantly changing with the fashion of the times. Now, not so much.

But, I can't really see how keeping to the old program and going to meetings (where everyone is on the new program) is going to work. To be entirely fair, I do plan on at least completely reading and understanding the new program, so I can see if it would be a good match for me (haven't done this yet).

Congrats to all of us for still slogging away! I hope, personally, to slog about 25 lbs away this year. Onward!

12/29: surgery

1/12: 174

Before anyone starts extending congratulations, I disappeared for awhile because I knew I had this surgery scheduled and losing weight was no longer a priority nor something I would need to worry about. I had surgery to correct sleep apnea - deviated septum repaired, nasal turbinate reduction, tonsils removed, adenoids removed, uvula removed, soft palate trimmed. After the surgery I had no appetite and couldn't swallow much even if I had been hungry. Lived off of jello, pudding, chicken broth and apple sauce for about eight days. Oh, and I also had a steady supply of Schedule II narcotics in liquid form to help alleviate the pain but the pounds just melted away. Just so you know, this diet plan is very effective but I wouldn't recommend it!

I gained a pound and I know the culprit . It was chips . You can not tempt me with cake ,candy or cookies but chips do me in . The bag is now gone so hopefully I'll do better .

That makes a month in range. So far so good. No exercise this week as I'm out on a training course all day and doing homework at night. Good fun, sorta, but I'm glad it's only a 7 day course.

Btravlin - I don't fancy your diet plan at all. I hope you recover, healthwise, and manage to hang onto much of that enforced weight loss
