Hi! I am a 43 year old Mom of 2 (22 and 20) and have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember! At one point I topped the scales at 215 pounds - and that was NOT when I was pregnant! In 2000 I joined Weight Watchers and successfully lost 50 pounds. Then, unfortunately we moved away to a small remote community with no WW in sight. I continued the program on my own and lost another 33 for a total of 83 pounds. However, keeping the program going on my own with no other members to talk with/listen to eventually became harder and harder and I slowly started putting the weight back on. I find if I don't exercise I don't lose weight- in fact it is very easy for me to gain it simply from lack of exercise. Well, in January, I decided to start the points system again and by June had lost 20 pounds. For the past 2 months I have been at a stand still weight wise. I have been diagnosed with degenerative disk disease in my neck which affects my neck, should and whole right arm - so at times even walking can be painful (swinging my arm and just moving). I need to keep going - 20 pounds more to come off, but would like that feel of a support system again...others who are fighting this great fight everyday! I'm sure with everyone's help here, I will be successful and I hope I can help others at the same time.

Calories for Resting?
I really don't understand the preset numbers on my Exercise calendar. Why do I earn calories for resting? And so many? It's like I should be able to lose weight simply by doing nothing but resting and sleeping. NOT! I suppose it's simple...if I do nothing else, then those are my activities for the day - but then, I don't feel I should earn anything for doing nothing. Anyone able to explain this to me so it makes more sense? Anyone else feel the same? Just doesn't seem like a true number.

Couple of questions
Yikes...I guess I wasn't clear in my post. Sorry jacquisplace...I meant that I made blueberry buckle and want to add it to my cookbook. But in the ingredients list provided, I cannot find anything to choose from except splenda packets. I do use the bagged splenda for backing since it measures cup for cup.

Thanks for clearing me up though on my question regarding a "stick" of margarine. Same as our squares!

Couple of questions
I was trying to add a recipe but got stuck on the first 2 ingredients! I needed to add 1/2 cup of margarine (I use a canola margarine) - I can't find "cups"'s "sticks", is half a stick 1/2 cup? We don't get's either a 1 pound block, 1/2 cup squares or tubs. Second...I need to add 1/2 cup splenda...and all there is is packets. So anyone know how I can add those ingredients?

Not sure how to add fruit salad
At lunch today I had a homemade fruit salad- about 1 cup. It had a mixture of watermelon, honeydew, canteloup and pineapple. Nothing else. But I can't find a way to include it in my food journal. Can anyone help?
