Hi. My name is Jean and I just turned 60 in April. I need to lose a bit of weight and hoping this will work. It is amazing when one day you look in the mirror and can't believe it is you. I never thought I would get this big. I don't feel bad, except going up steps makes me a little breathless but other than that I am okay. My first goal is to get below 200. Good luck to everyone on their journey.

Hi everyone! I've been dealing with my weight issues for a number of years, and have tried pretty much every plan out there. I have done WW before, but not for a number of years. I decided to try it again and really focus and give it my all. I am doing WW from home, and I'm using the mobile app to track. I have a LOT of weight to lose, but I am determined I'm happy to be here and looking forward to sharing your stories, and using the forums to help me stay on track.

Hi all
I just joined the forum yesterday and am still learning to find my way around; so bear with me. :-)
I never wanted to join WW, because I strongly disliked their commercials on TV. However... now I'm doing it anyways. So is life. What convinced me to try WW was that they don't forbid any foods but rather teach you moderation.
Here's an extract from my Introduction in the Introduction Thread, feel free to skip :
I have always struggled with my weight and I've been on an abundance of weird and not so weird diet programs. I come from a place where I was made to believe I was fat and ugly even if I was not. I was pushed to follow this and that diet program, lost and gained weight. However, I got wiser with age (37, LOL) and finally accepted that first and formost I have to love myself. Body Shaming of any kind is a huge no-no for me nowadays and I fight it fiercely, for me and others.

There are several reasons for me why I want to lose weight now. For one, I'm sick and tired of my doctor telling me to lose weight when I'm seeing him because I have the flu. One thing has nothing to do with the other.

Secondly, I'm not getting any younger and it's better for my health if I lose weight.

I'm also sick and tired of having to shop in the plus size section and thus having to pay an arm and a leg for a pair of jeans that actually fit.

And - last but not least - my partner and I plan to get married in 2016. I will never be skinny (that's just an illusion) and society will probably still call me overweight; but I can go down to a size where I feel comfortable and where I feel beautiful in a wedding dress.

I'm currently on my third week on Weight Watchers. I just did two weeks Easy Start and am now on my first week of ProPoints. I'm not going to meetings, as that's just not my thing. In my country, WW does not offer an online forum or any other form of online support, which sucks. Therefore, I was looking for a general weight loss community.

In order to succeed, I need to plan. And that's also my biggest challenge. I plan our menues on a weekly basis and write our shopping lists accordingly. I try to plan smart, but still I feel that after work I spend the majority of my time planning and cooking, which is time that goes away from partner and hobby. But we're working on improving our routines. :-)

And in case you're curious: I've started out at 128.7 kg at the beginning of October and am at 126.6 kg as of last Saturday. First goal is to come down to 120 kgs. I've learned the hard way that it's always better to start out with small goals.

Hello everyone! I am so glad to be back on WW. I have struggled with my weight since I was in middle school and pretty much yo-yo dieted all the way through high school. In college I reached my highest weight from stress eating and lack of exercise, and I finally decided to stick to my guns and lose the weight, which I did. For the last few years I have been struggling with losing & regaining the same 15-20 lbs. Last year I finally got to my goal, and I was steady for several months. My husband and I decided to have a baby, and during my pregnancy I gained A LOT of weight. I'm 6 months post partum now and I still have about 20-25 lbs to go.

Happy to be back on WW! I started it before I got pregnant to lose the last few lbs and it really worked and I love it!

Hi everyone!

I'm new to WW. i just joined PointsPlus yesterday. I went to a meeting, but feel like I could benefit more from having online support as well, so I just joined here!

About 8 months ago, when I turned 30, I decided to get my life together. I quit smoking, then a few months after, I enrolled in college. Now that I'm in my second semester as a college student, I'm ready to tackle my weight.

I have to say, I lost about 50 lbs before on my own, and maintained for two years, but with quitting smoking and starting school, I've since regained 19.

I'm hopeful that this time I'll be successful for good.

Default Hello! Former Flexer

And back with my old materials, including the ancient slide rule calculator.

I'm getting too old to carry around 40+ extra pounds. This is for my future.

Hello! I'm Mandy and I'm 29 years old from Southwestern Illinois. This is my 4th attempt at Weight Watchers in the last year and I am absolutely determined to make it stick! I started back up on March 2, 2015 and I'm currently down 6.6 pounds and already feeling better because I'm eating better and exercising. I've always been heavy, thanks to genetics, but the last 4 years I've been working an EXTREMELY sedentary job, so mindless eating has made my weight absolutely balloon. My mom died at age 55 (when I was 25) due to complications from a myriad of illnesses, and I don't want my weight to be the reason why I can't live past my mid-50's.

Hi all, this is my first attempt with WW. I know so many people who have had lasting success on this plan, I figured I'd try it. I've done everything from South Beach to Zone Diet, low-carb diets, plant-based eating, juicing, CrossFit, heavy weightlifting w/ huge amts of protein intake, etc. and nothing has afforded me anything but short-term results. This seems like a nice, middle of the road, not-so-extreme plan. I don't have a ton of weight to lose, but I'm up almost 30 lbs since my wedding 5 years ago (I dieted and exercised myself down to 130 lbs for the wedding). That weight isn't really something I view as maintain-able, so I'll try for 140 lbs and see how I feel. I've been doing WW for almost a week now and I've been exercising about an hour almost every day. It feels good to get moving again.

I am pretty good about staying on track when I'm at home, but I travel for work and that's where I get into trouble. I have a very busy summer coming up with multiple family vacations and several weeks out of town for business, so I am definitely worried about that! I've been good so far about drinking my water which, in the past, has been a real challenge for me (I generally detest the "plainness" of water) and I've managed to keep my alcohol intake to a bare minimum... my vice is a couple of glasses of red wine at the end of the day... this is where business trips kill me.

All that said, it's nice to be here and see all of the ladies who are on the same journey, sharing ideas for meals and points, snacks, and just the general support! Best wishes and I hope to see y'all around!
