I am also a life time member. Unfortunately, I have gained weight back twice. This is my third time trying to lose (only about 15 to get back to goal). I should have kept going to meetings, but the first time, I joined the army, gained about 50 pounds and when I got out, went to weight watchers for the second time and lost it. I then worked for weight watchers taking the money, but had a job where I was out of town months at a time. Should have stayed with the meetings while out of town, but never did. Again, gained back 50 pounds. I am now really close to being back to goal. Will probably work for ww again when I get back. This time I will stick with meetings even if life takes me away from home.
New low reached 149.2 lbs on 5/6/11. Made my weight watcher goal on Tuesday, May 3, 2011. New walk record 9/9/11, 4 miles in 58 minutes.

I am a lifetime member of WW and tried it 5 times before it took hold this last time. I owe it to the support of my Spark team and of course the WW food plan. I love it too. We welcome you and hope you become active on our site. Its helps to have the support of the team, and only by you being active can we know how you are doing. So lets hear from you often.

Just wanted to pop in, introduce myself, and say hi. I'm Charlene and I just started Weight Watchers, AGAIN... I don't know why in the world I ever stopped with WW. It's an awesome plan, and it really does teach you a healthy lifestyle.
I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you.
Have a wonderful day!
