Great job on your weight loss I started last week weighing myself which I haven’t been doing for over a year I’ve have a cruise in November so need to take off 11 pounds, but have been tracking to get my 10,000 steps in plus treadmill for activity..

Still chugging along. Both my daughters are doing this with me and we are up to 140 lbs lost.

My original goal was 40 lbs by our September cruise. Goal met and new goal was 50 and I am currently at 49lb. So I guess it's time for a new goal???? 60 ? but that would be a stretch goal. I will try for that but not beat myself up if I don't make it. I will need to shop for new cruise clothes, but I think I will wait for August to do so.

Good luck to everyone! You can do this!!

I know its weird but I usually lose weight while on a cruise
There are tons of vegtables cut up and ready to eat along with fresh fruit and salad bars

I have found most restaurants dont have salad bars like they used too

I am also very active and make it a point to work out every day

I am away from all the things that let me focus on me....I need to lose 10 pounds so Im starting back on WW

Glad I found fellow weight watcher members on this site. Im down 15 lbs. Going to Cuba on the Norwegian Sky plan to take advantage of veggies and fruit, have some mojitos instead of desert and exercise. Good luck to all and Happy Cruising

Hi all! Hope your WW journey is going well. I'm now down 43.4 pounds in just over 5 months. I'm really hoping I'm at goal by next cruise. I really love the FreeStyle program, as I'm having more success with it than other WW programs.

Eight weeks in to the new Freestyle WW program. Down 16 lbs. Hoping for 9 more before my August 30th Cruise. Then to enjoy while not gaining during the 12 day trip!

Those of you who have done well, will you share your secrets?
Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Thanks,
Agnes

I would say you are doing fantastic! Your 16 pounds in 8 weeks equals 2 pounds a week. Whatever you are doing is working!

As to my secrets, I try to eat fruits and veggies with every meal. I also make sure I'm having some healthy fat every day and I use all or almost all of my weekly points every single week.

If you are using the WW app, I'm on Connect as deblemmon715.

Still working on Freestyle but got derailed a little over the recent holiday. Had a gain and took another week to break even. Currently at 51.4. Trying to "buckle down" and lose 10 more before our cruise in 8 weeks.
My daughters, who are cruising with me, are down 49.8 and 52 respectively.

Please post when you get back from your cruises and let us know how you did on the cruise.

eem: That's great for all of you! Hang in there. I was really scared before my last couple cruises that I would lose control on the cruise and come home with a huge gain. I had 2 cruises (a 10 day and a 8 day) inside of a month. I enjoyed myself but never lost control. It felt good to come home and feel successful. So, I wish you all good luck with your cruise! Don't lose sight of your REAL goal, which is to maintain your loss. You may find that leaving the "food fest" behind doesn't mean you won't have as much fun.

For me personally, half my battle is getting right back on top of things when I get home. In previous years, I kind of "lost it" when I got home. This year I did not let that happen. I'm happy for you that you've found your mojo!
