Diet Pals - McPeg is Back (aka quiltingbunny)

mcpegAugust 12, 2005

Hi everyone,

It has been a long, long time since posting here. I have justed returned home to Canada after a long stay in Scotland. With the last 4 months of getting ready to move, living in kaos, entertaining with friends and saying good bye - my waistline has exploded. My choice. Now I am back to my weight watchers program and having to shed 40 pounds.

I am starting at 167 pounds, size 14/16. My goal has always been that notorious 130 pounds. If I can succeed at getting to a size 12/14 and hold on to it for 6 months - I would be extremely happy.

I hope everyone is doing well. Now that I am back online again, I look forward to posting regularily.

Ta ta for now,

Good Morning!
I have my book out and calculator today. Starting fresh.
My calculator is UK based - does anyone know the point value for 1 cup of 2% and 1% milk?
It's cooling down to 26 degrees today - a good day to get out for a walk. I hope everyone is getting out and enjoying some fresh air today.

McPeg---good luck on getting back into WW. I am still hanging in there. Need to get back to Journaling on a regular basis--helps me.

2% milk is 3 points, fat free and 1% are 2 points per cup.

Hi Susy,
Many thanks for the update. I agree that journaling helps a lot. Posting on the forum helps me a lot to stay on course. I see you are also a quilter - so am I. I do a mix of machine piecing and hand quilting. Keeping my hands busy keeps my mouth out of the fridge!
How is your week shaping up?

Didn't win the lotto last night. But I am winning at sticking with my goals this week. Loaded up on the lovely fresh veggies now available and really enjoying them.
How is your day going?

Hi McPeg. You sticking around this time? Well I have fallen badly too. I had a change of BP meds and sat for a month and was sad and cried (definitely not the usual me!) and ate and put on weight. I kept waiting for the side effects to go away but they did not. Uck! I called and am on new meds but the weight wants to stay and many vacation days are not helping. Heading to the doc next month so I need to get busy. I'll join you for awhile. I have salad waiting too and bought some green beans someone grew and picked for 50 cents a bag at a yard sale - I was "doing" 6 big bags of green beans for hours yesterday. Shouldn't need to buy more for a long time. Oh one more thing I have Discovery Health channel now and there is a show about people who have lost a pile of weight. It's called Losing It and is on right before lunch here - great timing! Just curious did you see the movie - Supersize Me? Well worth watching. Kathy
