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!

Kudos to having found "what works" for you! Absolutely no disrespect intended for anyone who finds SSRIs or any other medication helpful I never counsel anyone away from meds, merely stress the importance of all the ways one can work with their meds for optimal results.

YOU are your own best expert!
