well, we went for our gift cards last night it was the last day at .20. So we bought what we needed to pay off trip so now will get roughly 17 tank fill ups which will be approx 680. Or more. Wahoo. But I have to admit I was hyperventilating a little putting out that much money in gift cards and for a trip that that doesn't even cover it all😁 still have to do plane fare and universal hotel and   More...

Good morning. It has been a while since I have been on. Not doing well with the weight loss πŸ˜ͺ I have gone to WW for 6 years, lost 50 lbs and now through yo yo-ing have gained it all back. I have decided to take a break from the meetings and weigh ins but hope to find support here more often. Looking to buy a fit bit and get motivated in the way of moving more than in food. I have my dw trip to  More...

I have a fitbit and I love it. I log everything into it, food, water, sleep, exercise. It really helps with eating because it logs everything so you know exactly how much to eat daily. I just have the flex, not the fancy one. - varela2892  55.5 #4669 2:46PM
Never had one but you say log into do you do this via you computer or phone ? I an very tech challenged  - mmddgp  1063.1 #7 8:39PM
Me too!  Love it - Ilovegoofy  52.0 #4807 8:44AM
mmddgp you log info in your phone via app that is free with phone. Super user friendly set up and updating.  - Ilovegoofy  52.0 #4807 8:45AM
Love my Fitbit flex. It does make you more reliant on the app to get info but it does the job.  - TiggersAndTinks  176.1 #2346 8:26PM
  It is both a app on your phone or you can use your computer. The only thing about it I don't like is having to charge it about every other day. I know someone who has a Garmin and the charge lasts for a year, it runs off of watch batteries.  @@@@@@mmddgp - varela2892  55.5 #4669 8:51AM
I have Fitbit Charge and I charge it every five days or so. Charges completely in one hour. I usually take it off and charge it in the morning before getting into the shower. I also charge at night if I'm soaking my muscles in the tub.  Either way I'm not missing logging any steps.  - Ilovegoofy  52.0 #4807 8:49AM
Have you ever heard of the book French Women Don't Get Fat?  It came out about 10 years ago.  I bought it on a whim, and read through it, I still pick it up from time to time. What she had to say about food and activity really made a lot of sense to me.  It actually helped me change the way I look at food and health.  We live in a society that sends such mixed and strange messages about food, nutrition, and our health.  On one hand, there's so much excess, on the other there's so much dieting and's no wonder we struggle to maneuver through all that!  I recommend having a look. πŸ’– good luck with your new journey! 😘🌺✨ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  626.9 #337 8:46AM
Also, have you ever thought of doing a RunDisney race?  They are so fun, and encouraging, and you don't have to run--many people walk!  Fun family activities ☺️ 5k is 3 miles and pretty doable for people who are in basic good health and train.  They've been great motivators for me and my husband over the last few years.  Much less pressure during the race than I expected, too - Spoonful_O_Sugar  626.9 #337 3:22PM
Thanks for the info on the book, I will look into it. I have done a couple area 5k and really don'tMind them at all. For me it is just getting in the habit of doing something, anything consistently. I do like the strategy of WW everything with in reason is allowed and also get in exercise which is a good balance.   - mmddgp  1063.1 #7 7:38AM
I always wondered if you have to run or can just walk. Thanks for the info and encouragement for everyone! - Ilovegoofy  52.0 #4807 8:50AM
If any one is interested, RunDisney is now doing "virtual" 5K races this summer, too.  That could be a fun motivator and something to do with family/friends!  You get a medal and everything.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  626.9 #337 6:33AM

Finally official. Made ressies today. Two rooms at port Orleans riverside for 7 nights for 10 people. Me hubbie youngest daughter all 6 grand kids and my granddaughter to be. Still need to book second part of trip up at universal. So excited!!!

I would highly recommend the Loews Royal Pacific hotel at Universal if you've not already booked something.  Getting the early entry and free express passes makes all the difference.  Harry Potter rides in each park can be completed before the park is open to everyone else.  Also the pool area is fantastic for the children.  Go to parks first thing, return to pool for lunch and then head back into the parks once quieter again.  Have a great trip :-) - beentoall  861.1 #0 10:04PM
Agree, great hotel! - jacdanfan  12150.4 #6 10:15PM

Ok! This is just crazy! I have gained again this week another 2.8 lbs!! I know it's me not doing the plan, not getting excersise, not relieving my stress, eating properly!!!!! I have a medical test in the morning then I am going to try and buy a fit bit. I have said this before but I have to get moving, get motivated, stay focused, plan and track meals. Grand kids are playing ball and we are at  More...

Keep working at it. The fact that you "ate" the park probably doesn't help. If you are going to eat the park maybe start with Toon Town or Fantasyland.  don't eat Star Wars land before we get a chance to enjoy it. Hehe  - DLKenCA  2755.4 #53 8:12PM

2lbs per week is very do-able... Cut out something from your diet, count your steps and calories. Do a few sit-ups, push-ups and squats ..( 6-10, twice a day takes 10minutes ) easy ! You will succeed! - carminaire  843.9 #223 8:04PM

Oh my goodness I have missed so much great conversation. I have to get back in here. I was in conferences in Orlando and yes I got to do a couple days at Epcot. Weighed in today and was up another 2.2 lbs!! I have to get busy. I thought I would have done better than that, I got at least 9,000 steps in each day and felt I made wise choices. Oh well back to the grind, this week my goal is to track d  More...

Thank you for your photos of your trip!  Glad you had fun and that you made healthy choices: that's what's most important, in my view.  Take it one step at a time πŸ‘£now that you're back--sounds like you have sensible, do-able goals for this week. πŸ‘πŸ˜„  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  626.9 #337 9:26PM
But you had a good time and that's what counts!  The weight will come off.   - msdizmaui  752.2 #262 2:13PM
How fun!  And that's a great step count!!!!  Great job!!! Did you post that topiary collage in DL talk a few days ago?  The Snow White is beautiful!!   - Ilovegoofy  52.0 #4807 9:07PM
I did! There are actually a couple of them. Yes the Snow White and dwarfs are one of my favorites but they are all so amazing and pictures really don't do them justice.  - mmddgp  1063.1 #7 7:53PM
I hope to see them in person some year!  Until then I'm so happy to experience it via MW. So thank you so much for sharing! - Ilovegoofy  52.0 #4807 9:00PM
