Default Hi, Everyone!


I am a new member here and am a member of Weight Watchers. I attend meetings because it helps me feel more accountable. I don't think I could do the WW online and have tremendous admiration for those who are so disciplined!

I'm just finishing my first month on WW and I use the points system. I tried WW in the past but found that I wasted all of my points on junk. I guess I just wasn't ready quite yet. But now that I'm not only an empty nester, but living alone after many years, I feel more settled and "ready" to get to know who I am. The mobile app is wonderful and I have truly enjoyed playing with the scanner in the grocery store. I'm such a dork!

I'm looking forward to getting involved here and cheering all of you on and also lending a shoulder for support. I'm down over 7 pounds so far (last weigh in was hard.. just .4 of a loss... but I was on vacation that week so I'm not beating myself up over it.

Any tips you would like to share??

What I'm doing is I have broken my goal down into 5 pound increments, but instead of shooting for say, 240, 235, 230, rather I am doing 239, 234, 229. It gets me over that "hump"....

Have a wonderful night!

I'm not a WW but you said it yourself. You failed last time because you wasted your points on junk food. If you prioritise good quality whole foods rather than processed and packeted foods, you will find it easy.

I find that the two biggest things to do are track what I eat and attend the meetings and weigh in. If I do those, things seem to work out well.

If having trouble with eating junk, I just don't buy certain foods for the house any more. Also, track your Good Health Guidelines
