Philicia, Sparkpeople is a great one to try. I'm a Lifetime member as well, 35 years now, but I gained it all back, too. I also lost weight following Sparkpeople, but my father's death, my nephew's death and other things got the better of me, so I'm back again.

Hi all; I am a lifetime Weight Watcher member. I have been back at it since January 9, 2014. So far I have lost 49.2 lbs with another 6.6 lbs to go to make it back to goal. It has been an extremely slow process this time round, but I just look at it as getting to know what healthy looks like again. I go down, then I go up, feel like I am on a teeter totter. Hoping that doing Spark People along with my WW meetings and on-line WW that my weight will start to drop again. Hope I can gain much knowledge from all of you. Support and Motivation is what every one of us needs, let's get this thing done.

Thanks SANDYKMAC !! Your message is helpful. I do think at first I need help before I just try to do it on my own. If they do not have meeting in my area I may have to go to the next town but just hope they are not on days I work. If so then to the online WW I go. I will post also for help with questions. Wow thanks for welcoming me I already feel better. Keep up the good work.

Welcome WOMAN1964. I'm a lifetime member of Weight Watchers, I reached my goal in 1980. I did well for quite a while and I've been back several times since then. I'm doing it online right now because I work retail and I've had trouble trying to make it to meetings, but I can tell you meetings really help. I was going to meetings last year and I tried the Simple Plan and just couldn't eat just that list, I ended up using too many weekly points. Last week, I decided I was going to do it and I've been doing pretty well. For me, the best part is that I am really feeling better physically after just four days. I've noticed that Sparkpeople isn't as active as it used to be, but it does work. I joined in 2007 and lost weight. Then, my father passed away in 2009 and after that, I was taking care of my mother and I felt a lot of stress from work and family. Well, I think I'm beginning to ramble now. There are also message boards you can go to if you need some help.

Hello I like this site Sparkpeople but I see people don't use this site as much as they do FB. I would like this site more if people would come back and help the people that need help to stay with a plan to lose weight. I have never tried weight watchers and today I decided that I am going to join. I am trying to read up on it as much as I can. For years I have done high Protein. A few years back I lost 50 pounds and gain it back and here I am at a lost with my weight. Hope I can do this. I know a lot of people have done great with it. Well Hope everyone had a great weekend.

I've been struggling for over a year now and I decided it was time to get motivated again. I decided to try the simple plan and this time it really seems to be working. Last year, when I tried, I had a lot of trouble trying to stay with the power foods. I turned 60 last September and I've gained back way too much weight. I'm winded and have a difficult time getting around. My right hip is starting to hurt so I need to take this weight off so I can minimize the pains.

Hi!

My name is Kayte. I am 32 and I have 49 lbs to lose. I've already lost 7 lb in the two weeks I've been on Weight Watchers and I love it!

My goal is to lose the weight and also build strength so I can attempt another pregnancy; my first pregnancy ended in a loss at 22 weeks.

I love to cook so WW works for me and my style of cooking. I also love to sew my clothes, scrapbook, and travel. I've looking to make friends that I can encourage and who will also encourage me.

I hope you all have a great Friday!

Hello, my name is Jennifer. I'm also doing the program at home. I have the program materials for the points plus program since I've joined many times in the past. This time I want to make sure that I'm actually willing to put in the time and get into a routine of tracking my food and figuring the values. IF I stick with it and it's helping me to lose weight I'll probably re-join and do the program online once I have the extra money again.

My name is Elise & I live in NJ. The last time I was at a meeting was in 2013 & I was doing pretty good but it's too much money to go. I am trying to do it by myself but could still use the support like you get at the meetings. I hope you can do that!!!! I would appreciate it.

I am going to start this weight loss thing again tomorrow. I am so tired of being so motivated at the begining then losing interest. Even though I feel better losing the weight I give up and go back to my old ways. Hopegully this time I will stick with it. I lost almost 40 pounds and taking charge again after gaining 18 back I refuse to gain it all back. So here we go again!

Hi all! I have been a member of Sparkpeople since 09 had a lot of success and failures over that time.
We had health screenings at work and they started WW@work last week. I really haven't started yet, because I have not been to the store to "redo".

I get paid every other week so I grocery shop and meal plan 2 weeks at a time. I usually cook supper every night for my family (me, husband and daughter) non of which are over weight but me, however we all need to eat healthier.
I work from 7:30-6 M-F so breakfast/lunch are at my desk.

Any suggestions for work or healthy satisfying suppers? My husband is a meat + 3 guy - but based on my assessment we eat too many starchy foods!

ANY help/guidance would be greatly appreciated!! emoticon

Hi! My name is Tikisha. I am from a small town in SW Washington. I love WW and have done it before but don't have the books right now (stay at home mom with limited income) so right now I am just watching calories but I am hoping to get the new points plus books soon. I have a one year old daughter and am getting married in three weeks so I have a lot to be healthier for.

Hi, My name is Lynne and I have been doing WW on and off for about 5 years. Started with the original points program and am now doing Points Plus which is much easier because of the "free" fruit. I love fruit so being able to fill up on fruit when all my points are used up for the day is great. I am also doing the program from home which is tough because I have the support of my husband but he is skinny and doesn't need to be on the program. However he will eat the dinners I make that are low points. Also luckily we have a pantry for him to keep his fattening snacks so they are out of site out of mind.

Thanks for the message. So far had bacon medallion with egg, baked beans and wholemeal bread, all free on the plan

Made lentil soup for lunch and going to make a cottage pie with extra veg for dinner, skimmed milk for tea so good day planned

Hi SUE EADIE, I'm also doing the WW online, following the Simply Filling Plan in the US (South Carolina). I have been having success with it and finding easier than I thought I would. I hope you enjoy it too.

Am starting weight watchers online today. Am on UK plan but will be doing what we call filling and healthy plan. Probably equivalent to your simply filling plan. Have a long way to go though to get to goal. Looking forward to getting to know you all

Hello everyone!!

I have been sputtering on WW and on Sparks for a long time. I decided to integrate both accounts here. I find I do better tracking both sites. I can't afford WW meetings, so everything is online. That's okay though, it's all good.

Looking forward to meeting you all, and trying hard to making good habits and long term changes.

Hi, I'm Gwynn and I'm about to start WW!! I read one of their books (Coach Approach) from the library and also bought their cookbook from the library's book store. It's copyrighted in 2006 and coincides with the old points program which I have heard good things about. I tried a couple of the recipes and they turned out pretty good.

I'm married, in my mid-40's, and know without a doubt that my metabolism slowed down when I hit 40 and it seems like it just becomes slower and slower with each passing year. I do Pilates a few times a week at home but I know that a "few" won't cut it. I need to be determined and increase those workouts.

I'd love some SP buddies to go on this journey with me! I like sending mail and would love a motivational and supportive friend as I would be to them!

Welcome Angel !!!
You can keep tabs on your points by having the Fats, Carbs, Protein and Fiber checked off on your nutrition tracker ! I do this & it really helps !! emoticon

Hi everyone!
My name is Angel. I am a 33 yr old married mother of three. I joined Weight Watchers in January 2013 and lost about 30 lbs but have gained about 10lbs back over the holidays (I know, how cliché!) I no longer attend meetings, but I have just broken out my handy PP calculator and booklet to get myself back on track. I look forward to all the discussions and challenges this team has to offer! Best of luck everyone! emoticon

I'm Amy and I am back again after a year of trying all kinds of things that didn't work. I joined WW last spring and lost about 5 pounds and got discouraged by July and quit. I need to finally do this right as my BP is high and I am starting to feel lousy as a result. My 50th birthday is Thursday and I want to feel and look better than I do now. I think I am now finally willing to make the changes I know I need to. I know this is where I belong.

I plan on going to a meeting this morning and then off to the gym.

Dear ADLINS, Did you join WW meeting, or did you join online? If you did either, you would get a WW food tracker or if you have online e-tools, you can track online. You can earn activity points that you can use also. You get 49 weekly points that you can use if you want during the week for those extra occasions that you might go to, such as eating out, birthdays, etc.

I have tracked with my WW trackers and SP Food Tracker both at the same time. Actually the calories and points on SP, come out almost the same for my 5'4'' frame, as the points on WW. You can track your activity on SP fitness and it conicides with your nutrition tracker and adjusts your calories for the activity.

Is that as clear as mud? ........ emoticon Wendy

Hi. I'm new to WW and the points. I got the very lowest number of points and blew through them healthily with very little food. Granted I knew it and today was my first day and I did start after I made meal choices.

However, I tracked here and on Fitbit and was within the calorie range. Not a little over, but within - though at the top end.

I've looked all over the WW site for where it determines your points and can only determine that it did based on my height and weight, not how much I exercise, etc. Is there somewhere where they explain how they do it or where you can set an activity level?

Any insight is appreciated.

Hello W8Wathers Friends,
I am re-introducing myself and retrying weight watchers. I have not been on this board for a while.I am a 57 year old high school teacher and I have a great DH, two super DS and two little grandaughters. I have just gone through two very stressful years helping older relatives and juggling too many hours of work with too many family issues. Now, I want to concentrate on me and turn around the gaining that seems to have gone along with the stress. Even though I do not generally do resolutions, this feels like the right new beginning for me and I hope to get to know team members and lose together. Enjoy the weekend!

Donna....from Wisconsin

New to this group but not to sp or ww. Restarted ww Saturday. Went off of it in September when we found out my husband has cancer. I started making cutbacks right away and paying for weight loss seemed like a good place to start. 1 surgery, a root canal, 3 wisdom teeth pulled, many many trips, and I'm up 5 pounds. I've kept to my deficit but the math just doesn't work for me. Ww does.
I'm 50. We have 6 kids, 9 grand kids, a dachshund, an outdoor cat and an indoor rabbit. Looking for an active group that helps and supports each other.

Everything is permissible but not everything is beneficial. I will not be mastered by anything.

It's never to late to be the person you were meant to be.

Even if you can't physically see the results in front of you, every single
effort is changing your body from the inside. Never get discouraged.

Weight loss happens the moment you don't give up.

Just joined this team....lost 25lbs in 3 months on WW a few yrs ago and only gained back 5 of that. Been doing the SP tracking but, since Aug have only lost 5lbs. Counting calories, etc doesn't make my scale budge except for down 1lb, up 1lb, down 1lb, up 1lb. Very frustrating to say the least. In between the ups and downs, 5 lbs was lost somewhere in there. So, obviously I need to go back to what has worked for me in the past. Why it worked for me was because of the required points I needed to achieve per day for weightloss. My problem isn't over eating, mine is eating enough. That's why the point system worked for me. I had to force myself to eat to reach my points everyday. Okay, so, that's why I joined this team. :-)

Hi, my name is Kim. I have been on Spark for years!! Spark was actually recommended to me when I was doing WW online. Since then, I have lost the weight on my own and become a personal trainer and fitness instructor.

But the weight has come back with a vengeance! My workouts are not helping. My eating is all over the place. I have never done WW meetings before but I think I need that because I would not be honest with myself online. I need somebody to smack me in the face (LOL, I know leaders won't do that, but that's what I need). I found a meeting, signed up and paid today. I just happen to run across a story about Jessica Simpson of all people and that triggered something in me to try it. See, these celebrities actually do motivate others.

Hi! I'm Irena, I'm from Massachusetts and I am back on WW.
I've been on it before, and Angel you are right when we work it it works.
I am trying it online, without the meetings. I was never really comfortable at the meetings, I'm not sure if it was me or the leaders. I always felt super guilty when I did not have a good week.
I'm hoping that checking in on Spark will help keep me accountable. If it doesnt work, I'll try the meeting again.
I just turned 50 and am feeling like its now or never. I dont want to have surgury, so here I go again!
