just go onto the fitness board on here and it’s a few threads down.  i’ve tried several other diet methods and now i do weight watchers online (i only went to 1 meeting to see what it was like).  i’ve found it to be very easy to follow and it absolutely is a lifestyle change, not a diet.  imagine when you were growing up, your parents gave you a budget of $30 a day to spend and you had to figure out how was the best way to spend it to maximize what you got for your money – that’s a lot like how weight watchers works.  they give you a certain number of points, and you’ve gotta figure out what fits within that points budget that will keep you feeling full and feeling good.  it really does force you to learn what you’re putting into your body and how to listen to your body.  

you can also do activity/exercise to build up extra points  ๐Ÿ™‚

@mg1363:  I LOVE WW online. I have the app and there’s a scanner app, too, which makes things super easy. It’s kind of a game to me, to see what kinds of bad foods I can get away with while staying within my allotted points. I’ve lost about 33lbs on WW since August (I went from 155 to 122), so I’d totally recommend it.

The WW Suport Thread is here.  Lots of us over there ๐Ÿ™‚

 

But to answer your questions, I’ve been doing WW online since mid Feb, and have dropped almost 20 pounds, we’ll see if I get there today when I track my weight! (stay tuned to the other thread haha!) I love it and it’s not as daunting as you probably think so give it a try! I almost feel like I eat more–and I might be but am filling up on good stuff instead of junk. And it’s definitely a lifestyle change and not just a diet! I know in the first week or so I was given a real eye opener about what I was eating!

I’ve got the app and scanner on my phone too and it’s come in handy!

I used WW online. It was actually pretty easy ๐Ÿ™‚ I lost 21lbs. I used it for about 4 or 5 months. It got too expensive for me, and I basically was sticking to eating the same stuff so for me there was no reason to try and count the points anymore. I would recommend at least trying it anyone who wants to lose weight!

I’ve been doing WW Online since mid February and have lost over 15 lbs so far.  I find it very easy to stick to and I don’t even really feel like I’m dieting.  I love that there is nothing that is off limits; you just have to make more better choices while still being able to have that brownie or ice cream or pasta or whatever.

I have done the online WW in the past with great success.  I lost about 20 lbs doing light cardio a couple times per week and some at home free weight toning.  However, when it came to needing to lose the last 15 – I plateaued for a long time – months on WW.  It came down to needing more calories at that point and more intense workouts. 

You will do well, if you follow the plan and have a support system.  I was happy with it. And I almost never used the online site, I did almost everything from my smart phone.  I felt very full most of the time.  I planned meals on Sunday and then grocery shopped and prepared my lunches and snacks for the week.  It helps to have fewer reasons to cheat – like no time to pack a lunch early in the morning.  Be cautious, you can eat whatever you like on WW – but you have to be honest and measure portions or it will not work. 

That said, it’s reasonable and pretty easy if you are already open to eating fruits and veggies as fillers.  And I’m vegetarian and that was also not an issue. 

Try it!  Good luck!

I have always struggled with my weight. I joined WW in may of 2009 because I was tired of being the fat girl. I went from 170 at my highest to 130 and have maintained within 5 or 10 lbs of that. If you follow the plan, it works! Best thing I ever did. Feel free to message me!

i have been doing ww online for almost a month now and i too felt the same way you did before i started. it is such a great program because i get to choose what i want to eat (w/in my points of course) and i don’t feel pressured to go to weekly meetings. its super flexible especially when i am going out with my friends or family. my Fiance has been supportive as well and is kinda following it with me (he uses myfitnesspal most of the time) and so far i’ve lost 7 lbs. doesn’t sound like much but when i go from doing nothing to making changes, it’s really a great feeling. as for exercise, Fiance and i try to walk at least 5 times a week and we walk for about an hour. please feel free to PM me if you need a ww buddy! ๐Ÿ™‚

ETA: just realized your location is san antonio too! awesome!
