I never had a weight problem growing up. At twenty-four, I had my first baby, followed 19 months later by the birth of my second child. That’s where my weight problem began. I’ve dieted off and on for the past four years sometimes with great success, and at other times, not so much. But the end result had always been the same: my weight loss, no matter how great or insignificant, has always been followed by regaining all of the lost weight–plus some.
I’ve only done Weight Watchers Online for the past five weeks. But so far, I’ve lost right at twelve pounds. As I’m sure you can guess, I’m pretty stoked! The thing about WWO that has been such an encouragement to me is that absolutely nothing is off limits. Other diets I’ve tried are very restrictive, many times blocking out entire food groups. This is not so with Weight Watchers. Weight Watchers is training me for when the weight is off as well. Their system of weight loss trains you to make good decisions when meal times come around, and it also makes you very aware of what you put in your mouth.
One thing that I’ve been very impressed with about Weight Watchers is that I don’t feel as if I’m dieting. I just feel like I’m keeping track of what I eat–and losing weight, to boot!
I am currently 33 pounds away from my goal weight, and while that seems like a lot, I can already feel and see positive results from the weight I’ve lost.
