I agree. My daughter-in-law went to IP clinic, bought all their food, and lost 90 pounds in about 9 months. She started gained it all back 90+ in one year. All diets work the struggle is keeping the pounds off. I started IP alternatives on this site. There's lots of good info for the diet without going to clinic and getting a coach. I couldn't do IP because I'm diabetic adult onset and just take one kind of oral med, but my sugars dropped down to low 80's after I did minimal walking exercise. I feel the weight loss is slow on WW and I can afford to join and go to meetings. I may go to 2 or 3 a week at different locations for support. Thanks for your support. Sandy

Default Hello~

Hi everyone... just stumbled across this forum looking for online support. I (re)started WW on 1/13. I'm a fallen lifetime member!!! That's ok... done it before, I can do it again.

I'm doing the SP plan. Love my meeting, love my lecturer. Feeling very motivated and thrilled that I found others at the same point in this journey.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone... plus supporting you while you support me!

Tril

Hi, I started WW AGAIN Jan 1, 2017. I know I can do this, I've done it before. I really am looking for motivation. The key to my success is planning, planning, planning. It's nice to have a place to come to. Thank you for all your help and I look forward to going through this will all of you.

Hi Nicole!

I agree with you on the importance of planning. When I don't feel like doing it, I remind myself of the old saying... When you fail to plan, you plan to fail!!! Gets me motivated every time. I don't LIKE to plan to fail! LOL

In need of a few words of encouragement this morning. I know I need to stay off the scale... it's an old habit. It messes with my head. BUT, that said, I've weighed the last three mornings. I gained yesterday AND today. I have NOT gone over points. It's just so frustrating. And I hear that little "witch" on my shoulder saying, "Why, WHY, are you making great choices if this is how you're 'rewarded'?" At times like these, I do not know.

Alright then... why DO I go on? Because:

My health is more important than my pant size.
My hair and skin look better.
(Usually) my attitude improves.
I tend to want to be more social.... unless it's a food fest.
I feel empowered.
I owe it to my family.
I want to avoid potential health issues as I get older.

AND... I want to be smaller. Sigh. I REALLY want to be smaller.

Thoughts, anyone?

HI all,

I am from the UK been overweight since my mid 20's, managed to drop some weight before on Cambridge (unsustainabe) and excersize, I have MS and the exersize kept putting me into relapse and I felt a bit sorry for myself after diagnosis and put all the lost weight back on (about 42lbs).

Fast forward to now, I want a better understanding of food and portions. I started WW in January and in 3 weeks have dropped 10lbs, I am also getting married in August and would like to drop 56lbs by then, which would be my halfway marker.

So Hi everyone

I have to say, stay off the scales! I did it again this week, it said I gained 3, I actually lost 4.... take the scales and put them in a cuoboard, they're lying to you..... Keep weigh ins for the meeting and concentrate on staying on plan, keep the faith and it will happen

Hello Swindonia! Thanks for your message. I know you're right. Actually, I was just thinking about going upstairs and weighing again because I can't BELIEVE it went up again. LOL Your message got to me first, thankfully. You're right. Just weigh in a the meeting. My focus needs to be my planning and execution of that plan... not the scale. If I do A, B will follow.

Congrats on your upcoming marriage!!! Have you bought a dress? My future daughter in law just ordered hers. It's one of my motivations right now... as mother of the groom I'll HAVE to be in the pictures. Ugh. I want to want to be in them.

An online group I've been with for, oh... 15 years or so... does Wednesday weigh ins together. So I weighed today. I'm down. Didn't do anything different from the last two days where I gained. Lesson? The scale is NOT the best measure of success!

So, so sorry for the loss of your mom. There are two things I have found that throw me under the bus weight wise, moving and the loss of a loved one. It usually takes me 6 months to a year to get control back. You did it in one! Good for you. Again, so sorry. {{{hugs}}} My mom is 85 and I know my time with her is precious.

Hi I'm Brittany 25 years old from West Virginia. This is my first time with WW, joined two weeks ago. It has really been a learning curve, and so far I have went over my weekly points because of Valentines and what not. I'm starting a new week today and with it I have a renewed since of hope. I am a chronic over eater and this is my first time every trying any type of diet or program to lose weight. Before I just didn't care, now I know that is not a sustainable lifestyle. I currently weigh 226 (the biggest I've ever been), my goal weight is 165.

Hello everyone! I'm back. I managed to gain 14 pounds in my grief, but now 2 weeks back on Weight Watchers and I've lost almost 8 pounds. I'm feeling motivated.
