I did ww for two years back in 2007 – I lost 150. I followed the points plan to the T. I didn’t exercise til I lost my first 50. I like the program – I don’t know what plan they are doing now as they change it every so often. I have sadly gained most back but that’s my own fault. I just started whole30 & that is going well. I would definitely recommend ww and also recommend keeping a food journal and counting all points – those lbt (licks, bites, tastes) definitely add up.

@soontobehisbride:  My parents were on Weight Watchers for several years (actually my mom still follows the program). Both of them didn’t need to lose a whole lot of weight but they each lost about 50-60 pounds with the points program. My mom is still a member and has managed to keep all her weight off by diligently following the program. She swears by WW because it’s not just a diet, it’s a whole lifestyle change. You can still eat the foods you want to eat, but it’s about moderation and portion control. Exercise definitely helps as well as it enforces the healthy lifestyle. Cutting out smoking and cutting back on caffeine and alcohol (especially beer) are also important.

I did WW in 2004-2005.  I lost 65 pounds on the points program.  It was online only, so I did not attend meetings. I have successfully kept the weight off – I think the great thing about WW is that it really teaches you about proper portion size/control.  I still even think in ‘points’ sometimes when it comes to food.  It often helps me make more healthy choices than I may have otherwise.

Side note:

after stalking for a year… this is my first post!


I just started “Weight Watchers” but I use a knock-off called “iTrack Bites” its a phone app that uses the same system- 1 time $2.99 fee to buy it. It doesnt have the same scanner as the official app- but you just take 1 minute to punch in the info to the calculator. I compared it with my friends official app- and sure enough it is the exact same and sooo much cheaper. 

Just trying to lose 15- as I *think*hope*prettysure*prettyplease* this will be my engagement year and I’m not happy with how I look in photos/how my clothes fit. Want to be ahead of the curve!

I just started a week ago- will let you all know how it goes.
