Hi I am Sarah. I started Weight Watchers on 11/22/2014 and so far have lost 12 lbs. I love it and really think it works. I am excited about what I might weight this April! The weight has really crept on in the last few years. I couldn't believe when I started weight watchers that I weight 207 lbs. I cannot wait to get to 177. That is my first goal! Then I can start losing from there. It was 2 years ago that I weight 177 and have it recorded in my diary. It's hard to believe I've ...
Hi I am Sarah. I started Weight Watchers on 11/22/2014 and so far have lost 12 lbs. I love it and really think it works. I am excited about what I might weight this April! The weight has really crept on in the last few years. I couldn't believe when I started weight watchers that I weight 207 lbs. I cannot wait to get to 177. That is my first goal! Then I can start losing from there. It was 2 years ago that I weight 177 and have it recorded in my diary. It's hard to believe I've gained so much weight in such a short amount of time. I am going to use both Sparkpeople and Weight Watchers. I am not leaving Sparkpeople. I like it better than WW because after all it is free so it might be good. Although I might now be a lifetime member of WW. Depends on how things turn out. But I do horribly without points. Points have totally saved me and my sanity!!!!
3/15/15 Update: Okay to update whatever I was blabbering about before! LOL. I have gotten over my weight watchers thing and am using spark people full time because I cannot afford weight watchers. I am loving the transition to the mobile app from WW's mobile app. So much better and it is FREE! I must say WW probably did help me figure out calories and how much I could have in a day so that did help and it is now easier to transition into just doing the calories and I did lose 17 lbs with WW. That said I am thrilled to be using spark people so much and I have increased my points to like 1000 from before just by downloading apps. I also have added fitness back in because there is something about using the Spark that makes you want to exercise. I was only recording my exercise before now that I realize there is so much more I am thrilled.
3/22/15 Updated: I am looking over my old blogs and realizing that I was at a decent weight at 175 being my lowest. I never went lower but this time I am really going to try. Right now at 188 I can't wait to get down to 175. I also realize looking at my old blogs I was in denial possibly and not really doing anything much about my weight. I mean I wasn't tracking the foods that I ate which is a big part of the whole thing. HUGE I would even say!
11/2014: Start weight of 207. 4/3/15: Weigh 186.2 and lost 10% of my weight since starting.
Eat between 1300 and 1800 calories every day and exercise for 20 minutes every day.
Name: Sarah Brooks Age: 39 Start Weight: 207 Height: 5 feet 5 1/2 inches I have 2 daughters. Michelle age 9 years and Megan age 6 years. I have major depression so it is hard to keep me motivated on an exercise program.
I love to read and am reading to fight my depression. It is working. I like to blog and write in my journal. I love spending time with my daughters. I love General Hospital, NCIS, Glee, Revenge, The Haunting Of and Desperate Housewives (which I am finishing on Netflix) as TV shows.
Hi Sarah ~ I just wanted to stop in to say hello and congrats on your weight loss so far! You are doing really great. I want to let you know that I started a May Challenge on our You Are Not Alone team to lose 5 pounds in May. I know that you are trying to get down about that much further and thought that you may want to join us. Jane just set it up for me yesterday so if you would like to join it is on our team page under the Health and Nutrition Forum and the topic is May Challenge. It is a ways that we can set a goal, stay motivated with each others help and also keep each other accountable. I would love to have you join, but totally up to you. I think we have 3 of us on there so far. Hope you have a beautiful and blessed week to come. Take care ~ Kandice
