Good Morning All,
I am one of those on-again off-again WW people. I am back on-again right now and I am staying that way!
In 2009, my husband and I joined WW and went to meetings religiously. I lost 70 pounds and DH got to goal. Well, life stepped in the way and I had some health issues, gained 60 pounds back and DH gained most of his weight back also.
So, we got back on the weight loss horse, but never had the motivation/momentum, etc. to work the plan again as much as we had in the past.
A friend at work told me about Ideal Protein. I started it. I worked it for two weeks and lost 10 pounds. However, it was awful! No fruit, no bread whatsoever.........just their "food" (mostly shakes and pudding) and a high protein meal of my own.
The biggest lesson I learned is that WW works and other extreme programs usually don't - or they do for a short time and then they don't.
I am back "home" at WW and I feel soooooo good. I can have carrots and all fruit! I can still lose weight! It may not come off as fast as other plans, but I know that WW fits into my life. I did not put this weight on overnight and it is not going to come off overnight, nor is it healthy to do it that way.
Ahhhhhh, WW is wonderful.
