MaizeHi,

I was doing WW about two years ago. Lost about 10 kilo's, then moved house, got married and gained
it all back again plus another 5!! Ouch. Anyway, last week I found myself standing on a scale again
for the first time in two years and found myself wondering what it would be like to see the scale
tip over 100 kilo's (Im 97,6 now). Sooo easy. But I decided I'd beter leave that as a "not in this
lifetime" experience and picked up the ww rroutine again. Lost 1 kilo in that week, then this week
I think I blasted that al away again with a pizza (thought I ate 14 points and it actually was
nearwer to
30) the next day I ate KFC then my husbands b-day so I ate lots of chips and the scrumptious
chocolate cake I'm famous for with all my friends!! Boohoo. Just ate another piece too.
Terrible, terrible. I will start again tomorrow. This time for real. Maybe I'll pop in once in a
while. Because of evening courses and a fulltime job I can't go to the meetings. So maybe I can
come an growl or hurray here once in a while?

........later: I walked off for a second to check my weight. I am now closer to the 100 than I've
ever been thanks to the kfc, pizza, chocolate cake excursion: 98,4 kilo's!!!!!!!! 1,69 meters
height. This is a now real problem. The heaviest I've been in my entire life.

I blew all my spare points at a friend's birthday party today, but what the hell - you're only 60
once, and I felt like joining the fun! Back on track tomorrow, and all will be well in the long run,
which is what counts!

true, but right now I wasn't too happy with my scale ;)) I think, however, that my friends and
family will have to do without the chocolate cake for a while... ;)

Melanie

what do the numbers at the bottom stand for?

I felt like that recently when I realized I had hit my delivery weight of my
first born of 192#. That was a shocker but what was worse was when I went
to rejoin WW their scale said 200#. I was devistated but thought what did I
think was going to happen if I never heeded the numbers on the scale as a
warning. Get on the stick and you will be in the grove of losing soon.

need to lose 50#

You have a real incentive now. You have to decide never to get to 100Kg. You have lost weight before
on WW so you know it's possible and you know YOU can do it. All you have to do is start. You've made
that decision now so report in lots and join in the fun

Hi Melanie! I didn't see the original, so I'm tacking on here. Here's the welcome notice
just for you.

Welcome to this great newsgroup where you'll receive lots of support, advice, and encouragement.
Once a week on Sundays, I post a list of links that newcomers to asdww might find useful. You may
want to look for that later in the week, or do a backwards search for last Sunday's post.

In the meantime, here's our FAQ: http://www.didian.com/asdww/ our welcome notice:
http://www.geocities.com/welcomenotice/index.html

Frequently seen acronyms on this NG: NSV = Non-Scale Victory WOE = Way of Eating WOL = Way of Life
(Living) OP = on Points or On Program DH = Dear or Darling Husband
DS/DD/DGD/etc = Dear or Darling Son, Daughter, Granddaughter, etc WI = Weigh-in

Amberle3's Challenges:

HHH - Happy Healthy Holidays Exercise Challenge: http://www.angelfire.com/me4/travelgirl/hhh.htm

NYNY - New Year, New You Weight Loss Challenge: http://www.angelfire.com/me4/travelgirl/nyny.htm

THTP - Take Heart, Take Part Exercise Challenge: http://www.angelfire.com/me4/travelgirl/thtp.htm

RafL - Resolutions are for Losers Weight Loss Challenge:
http://www.angelfire.com/me4/travelgirl/rafl.htm

Other acronyms: http://www.wwlissa.com/dwlz100+/100+acronyms.htm

Here's a short synopsis of the USA program by Joyce -

How many points you can eat is only based on your current weight, as you lose weight those points
allowed will decrease (logic is that your body will need less to operate). At 183 pounds and based
on the new US flexpoints system, you will have a set point target of 24. In addition to this you are
allowed 35 flexpoints to be used throughout the week ... as well as any activity points you earn on
a particular day. When your weight drops to 175, your target drops to 22 points ... weight reaches
150, target once again drop to 20 points. 3 servings of dairy of recommended per day, 5 servings of
fruit and veggies, minimum of 6 glasses of water.

To calculate food and activity points, I love this computer desktop calculator ...
http://www.zythra.com/downloads/points.exe

The basic plan is easy. Eat at least your minimum daily number of points. Points do not carry over
from day to day. You are allotted 35 weekly flexpoints to be used at your discretion ... can divide
them up and use daily (would be an additional 5 points per day) or save them and use them for a
special occassion during the week. Activity points are earned based when exercising, but can ONLY be
used on the day they are earned.

If you can afford $15/month, the online ww program might be a great thing for you to look into.
There is lots of information available, as well as the food point database and journaling system.

Joyce WW starting weight: 228.8 - 2/5/02 current weight: 133.3 Lifetime: 4/4/03

Please note that if you live in onther countries (UK, Australia, NZ, Europe), the Points plans are
different. The UK and Australia/NZ calculate points based on saturated fat and total kilojoules.
Most of Europe calculates based on total fat and total kilojoules. The desktop calculator above can
handle all of these programs.

Disclaimer: As an unmoderated Usenet newsgroup, asdww is unusual in that most of the people who
participate are respectful, considerate folks who freely share their experience with and knowledge
of WW, weight loss, and maintenance. Yet occasionally, spammers, trolls, and flamers show up to post
advertising, false information, insults, and the like. Nearly all of the time, people like this are
just trying to yank someone's chain. Most of the regulars on this newsgroup offer their experience
as a suggestion to try if you're stuck, but are quick to advise that each person has to find what
works for him/herself. If someone posts something that doesn't sound right to you, ask the
newsgroup, ask your WW leader, or ask your health professional.

Much success on your weight loss journey! WW works!
