    I'm here. Are you doing it online and not going to the meetings? I do all of my tracking online but I have a buddy here that I go to the meetings with.

    Here is another, I use E-tools and attend meetings. Have been having a rough time this summer. I need to get with the program and a WW buddy may be just what I need too.

    Count me in as a Weight Watcher. I go to a meeting EVERY Monday. I don't pay for etools. I've been going forever.
    I would love a "support" topic.

    Yeah we can all do it together. I'm going to need a lot of help. I have looked at all the diets and WW is the only one that makes sense. I just can't afford it right now... So I have read up on it on-line and I ordered a slider and hand book on ebay. I know journaling is important too. So here is my first question What are some good snacks and how many points are they?

    Popcorn is good, you can pop 3T in a microwave corn popper and it fills it, that is one point, I like to use the I Can;t believe it Is not butter spray and no points. I will have a diet soda with it no points.

    I have done Weight Watchers had to quit earlier this spring when I found out I was pregnant, sadly I miscarried. But just haven't found the motivation to start back up maybe in the fall.

    You should check out http://www.sparkpeople.com/ it's a diet and exercise website that's FREE. It allows you to track what you've eaten, counts your calories, helps you set goals, allows you to track your exercise, has exercise videos for you to watch/do :-) It's a great site. AND IT'S FREE!

    I am glad you found sparkpeople. It's a great site. There is also HungryGirl.com she gives some good recipes and has WW points calculated for them. I am sorry too - we have had 2 this year. We want one more baby but I don't know if it's going to happen.

    etools isn't extra. I am signed up so it comes out of my account monthly and it ends up being cheaper than paying every week.

    I too have gotten in a slump this summer but I am back on track this week. So far it looks to be a good week. I weigh in on Thursday so we will see what it is then.

    Zero depending on how you cook it. If you eat 2 cups of it you have half a point.

    I too go to Weight Watchers. I need help as I lose one week and put up the next. Maybe we could post tips/hints to help one another.

    Earlier this year I saw Geneen Roth on the Oprah's show. I loved what she had to say and ordered her book called "WOMEN, FOOD AND GOD". It has made a huge impact on me. It has helped me get a better mind set about food and my relationship too it. At the end of the book she gives 7 guidelines for eating. The guidelines hit very close to home for me.
    1. Eat when you are hungry. (personal note from me, hungry--not angry, frustrated, annoyed or hurt)
    2. Eat sitting down in a calm environment. This does not include the car.
    3. Eat without distractions. Distractions include radio, television, newspaper, books, intense or anxiety-producing conversations or music. (my personal note would include using the computer)
    4. Eat what your body wants.
    5.Eat until you are satisfied. (personal note from me again-we do not have to wait until the plate is clean)
    6. Eat (with the intention of being) in full view of others.
    (personal note--- I was a closet eaters for years.
    7. Eat with enjoyment, gusto and pleasure. (personal note--
    sounds easy, but I have trouble with this. Too much guilt
    (the personal notes are from me, not the author.
    I go back and read and reread some of the parts. It has helped me maintain my mind set.
