Hi Cathy- This is my first time here at your blog- found you through another mother runner. I am also a former smoker and WW girl. I love WW and it's actually what got me to become a runner. I loved your Why I Run post. It sounded a lot like how I got to be a runner as well. I also broke up with WW after having a successful go at losing the baby weight the first 3 times around (yes I had four kids in 5.5 years) when it wasn't working after #4. Mostly it didn't work because I read Michael Pollen's Omnivore's Dilemma and just couldn't go back to eating all those low point processed foods that got rid of the baby weight. But eat whole foods, mostly plants wasn't quite enough structure for me. So I struggled around free form without much success (isn't ice cream a whole food?!?!) Finally, I found PeerTrainer which gave me a support group to follow (like WW meetings) and a points-like system to help me make sure I was eating non-processed, nutrient dense food. If you liked points I think their Cheat System is something you might like to check out- plus, it's all free :) http://blog.peertrainer.com/tip_of_the_day/2011/02/the-peertrainer-cheat-system.html Thanks for the inspiration. I'm not a scrapbooker (yet) but I'm sure I'll stick around to find some more motivation. Cheers.
