Why Weight Watchers has worked for me ---(So Far)

Today being a Saturday was my Weight Watchers weigh in day and that meant going to the meeting.

I lost another 2.2 lbs (since my last Saturdays weight) that means I am a total of 24.8 lbs down in just over 14 weeks!

I thinks that is CRAZY!!!!!

Really, if someone would have told me in January that I will loose that much weight in the next 4 months I would have said that they are out of their minds  :)

I have tried all the possible diets out there from

Slimfast where I replaced a meal with a shake and ate a bar for the next and had one "sensible" meal a day.

Ya, that didn't work for me, as that would leave me so so hungry! I would end up eating more.

Then I tried the Juice fast, where I had juice just for three days, I lost some weight with that, but gained it all back.

I tried counting calories on my own on MyFitnessPal, that was almost for a year, that did not work either.

Then some of my blog friends suggested that I try the Weight Watchers diet, and I was thinking of that and I did join in the beginning of February.

The program was new and the BEST part about this program is it taught me to eat "real" food.

Yes after a long time I was "allowed" to eat.

Suddenly I felt free,

As if the weight over my shoulder was off!

I wasn't reprimanded me for eating.

I had other members (in real life) who were on the same journey.

Someone to go talk to, when I was suffering with my chip addiction.

Someone who celebrated my success with me when the scale went downward (in real life)

Don't get me wrong I truly appreciate all your virtual support, each and every single comment that you guys take the time to type in keep me going!


I was a lonely soul especially since my weight wasn't budging!

Then I joined Weight Watchers, and I felt the connect.

I felt "accountable"

I felt like something clicked.

As silly as this sounds--But.....

I felt as if someone would be MAD at me if I gained weight...

That, it would matter to someone if I did not do well and loose weight a week...

That I was answerable to someone!

That helped me...

I am not saying that it would help everyone of you who is reading or trying to loose weight.

All I am saying,it worked for me.

I am not really BIG on Advising people on what they should be doing especially if no one is asking,


I feel after loosing 25 lbs now I earned myself the right to be a BIT preachy--lol!

Take it or leave it....

Another BIG thing that worked was to be honest on the BLOG.

That is the reason I always post my photo stepped on the scale,

As photos don't lie right?

Then comes this photo,,,

I am still not too comfortable with my pretty photos been taken, sweaty ones are okay though lol cause

We all got to search for what works for us in this lonely "Weight loss" battle!

I hope you guys do find it too.

Oh, and also by any chance if I loose sight, please please feel free to remind me of my this post!

Stay tuned for Part 2 of this post.
