Default Hello out there...

Hi, I'm Lisa.

I just joined here today and wanted to introduce myself.
I have been dieting since June of last year. I lost 40lb from June to Sept doing low carb and then stalled (actually I ended up gaining a few pounds back). I have just recently switched over to weight watchers and have lost 6lb in just a little over a week..so I'm very hopeful that this will jump start things for me again. I really loved the lc way of eating but, I think my body just somehow adapted to it. I have lost weight before on WW and did really well....just have to let myself get to goal and beyond without reverting back to my old ways.

I know that I always do so much better with a support group so was very happy to find this place. I look forward to interacting with you all and hope to find some other WW buddies out there.

Hey Lisa!

WOW! Congrats on your 40 lbs so far...that's incredible. We have a great weight watchers forum here, so take a look around and find it.

You also might want to look at the 100 lb club - a great group of women on their way to losing or who have lost 100 lbs or more. It is such a wonderfully supportive group.

Look around, settle in, and get to posting...can't wait to get to know you better!

You'll love this place. You can pretty much talk about anything here. We all need to vent sometimes, and we all need to celebrate with other people- and you can do it all here. We are excited to have you!
