It's Time

  • Hello Everyone. I am delighted to have discovered this site. I have been very ill for a number of years and have gained a large amount of weight due to inactivity, medication and comfort eating. I am presently the size of a small planet.

    I have an old Points Weight Watcher at Home kit and would love to have support while I use it. I am setting mini-goals for myself, very small ones, so that I can do this in bite sized chunks.....ahem

    I would be very grateful if someone could tell me how to set up one of the lovely trackers I see at the base of so many posts. I would find that very encouraging to use. I think I'll also use a dancing carrot for every five pounds I lose. I'm rather taken with them.

    My goals are very definitely health ones.....to improve mobility, fitness and general well-being despite living with a long term illness. Thank you for having me.

    After 20 posts you get a tracker, so a few more! Congrats on planning a mini goal and GOOD LUCK
  • Thank you very much for your welcome eatingless. It's the start of a big adventure......and a smaller me. :]
  • You also have to wait a certain amount of time too - I think twenty-thirty days?- before you can have a signature. Believe me, I was excited too when I could put mine up! I was so impatient waiting, but at least when I was able to put one up I already had a little progress to put on to mark the ocassion.

    Welcome and good luck, we have whole forums dedicated to people doing weight watchers I believe. Hope you make a good support system here and friends
  • Good luck with your journey. Believe in yourself and I am sure you will get there!
  • Thank you both so much for your welcome, SenseAndSensibility and learningtolove1228. :]
  • Good luck with your efforts!!
  • Welcome and Good Luck
