43- woohoo! I'm doing Weight Watchers too. I started the first week of March. (Too bad I didn't start earlier- it would have been nice to have felt confident at the beach this summer!) :-)

Default So far

I've lost 26 counting calories and working out... and coming online for support and turning to all my friends... I have nine to go to reach the driver's license weight!

Adding on (8/10/01) - now it's 27 pounds with EIGHT to go to the drivers license weight and THREE to my shopping spree... I so desperately need new clothes - haven't really gotten any since I weigh 180!!! They don't fit anymore.

Adding on (8/24/01) - now we're at 28 pounds, whew that was a tough one! (But I went to Vegas last weekend and that MIGHT have had something to do with it!)

Adding on (8/28/01) - now it's 30!!!! Having the period weight magically disappear with a couple more pounds is GREAT! This is the goal weight where I get to SHOP!!!

Adding on (9/21/01) - 33!! I weighed 147 this morning. Under the halfway mark - which I dictated to myself I would never be over when I was 14. Little did I know... Wow. Feels good

Happy Friday!

I've lost 62 pounds so far (from 188-126) with 11 to go! I've done it by counting calories, eating a balanced diet, and exercising.

Congratulations and good luck to everyone on their weight loss journeys!

Default Just noticed this thread...

Okay, so it's taken me over ten years but -

In 1990, I weighed 265 pounds and was a size 3X.

Last time I weighed myself (I usually go by the "Pants-O-Meter" and bodyfat testing now) I weighed 152.

Currently I am a loose size 8 - hoping to get into a size 6 by October!

Body for Life Rules!!!

I started December 29, 2000 and have lost 86 lbs. I count calories and exercise and play ladies team tennis. My tennis coach and all of the ladies on my team have been a wonderful support group and have given me loads of encouragement.

In November 2000, I weighed about 230 and lost 10 pounds...then I gave up. I maintained that 220 until March 2001 and since then I have been diligent about exercising and have lost 20 pounds and I am now under the 200 mark!

So altogether I lost 30 pounds!

I have lost 173.4 lbs so far with Weight Watchers. I started WW 8/98 weighing 325.6 lbs and now I weigh 152.2!!! In the beginning I did as much excercise as I could, now I jog 3 miles 6 days a week and strength train 3 days a week. Plus any additional excercise ie, tennis, rollerblading. My life has totally changed, I'm finally enjoying life. My journey was not as difficult as I always thought it would be and I thank God everyday for Weight Watchers and the support of my husband, family and close friends. ANYTHING is possible if you want it bad enough. Good luck to everyone and I wish everyone SUCCESS!!!

325.6/152.2/140 (12.2 lbs. to goal, Yipee)

Thumbs down BIG loser

I have lost 112 on Weight Watchers since May 31, 2000 - my birthday. I can't say enough about the WW program - it has changed my life for good. I walk most everyday and work out to videos when I can. I TRY to eat to the low end of my points but that gets harder and harder. I have a nickname at work - BIG LOSER! You are all a bunch of big losers too!!
