My Weight Watchers Experience – by Joye Gray

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.

Have you given Weight Watchers a try? What have your results been? How close are you to goal?

  1. I love Weight Watchers! I joined in October of 2011 and lost 60 lbs by March! I am currently at goal and maintaining.

    • Wow! That’s great, Tomma! It’s always a great encouragement to me to hear of a stunning accomplishment by someone else. Thanks!

  3. That picture of the hamburger is making me hungry! Just joined a little over two weeks ago. 6lbs so far. I liked what you said about it not feeling like a diet. Just keeping track of what you eat and watching the weight come off. Yeah, my thinking too. Lost 46lbs from a previous diet and after gaining half of it back, joined Weight Watchers. About 74 pounds to go. Ugh. Good luck!

  4. I joined WW in August of 2007 and in May of 2009 I hit my goal weight. I had lost 126 lbs.
    I’ve regained 30 lbs due to treatments from breast cancer and a thyroid and adrenal issue but WW is still the best program for weight loss out there. Continued good luck on your weight loss journey. I’m back on track to lose the weight I had gained and feel confident that I will once again hit my goal weight.
