View Full Version : New here, need some WW advice

10-15-2012, 09:23 PM
Hi All, this is only my second time posting on this forum and since the last I have lost 15 pounds thanks to WW Online program. I use the iphone app to track, I do not attend meetings.

Anyways, I am looking for some advice. My weight loss has plateaued; I've been doing the program since May/June. I havent lost anything significant (more than .2 a week) for about 3 weeks. I am wondering if any of you have had any luck re-stimulating your weight loss on WW. Any tips and tricks are wanted and welcome.

I started at 185, currently weigh 170 and my goal is 155. Would I love to be 140? Sure. But I will be completely satisfied with the mid-150s and not driving myself completely insane.

Thanks again!

First, you're halfway to your goal! Wow! Congratulations, that's a real accomplishment.

Sounds like you're sticking to your points. You may already have this covered, but making sure you get enough sleep can have a big impact on your weight loss. Also, getting rid of diet drinks can help you reduce your feelings of hunger, which can help you shave off a few points here and there.

Lastly, if you can fit it into your points budget, there is a growing amount of evidence that avoiding carbs until at least noon can have a big impact as well, even if it's just a few days a week. So you might try think about trying two eggs or a small piece of cheese for breakfast if you can get it to fit into your point limit.

In any case, good luck!

Thanks for the reply ladies! Will try to fit in more veggies and avoid carbs before noon. I'll give anything a whirl, just want to get this weight loss thing going again... and then I'll be ready to have a baby!
