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 weigh 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 ...
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 weigh 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!
7/29/15 Updated: I am surpassing my goal at 174.2! I feel great and fit my clothes great. Can't wait to lose more!
10/25/15: Updated: Seem to be in a plateau but holding strong around 170. I got on the scale tonight and it was 170.2. I have to work extra hard now to get results. Slow but sure I know and thankfully there are inspiring stories out there. Also had my 6 year sparkaversary!
11/2014: Start weight of 207. 4/3/15: Weigh 186.2 and lost 10% of my weight since starting. 9/30/2015: Goal to reach 167 lbs by this date.
Eat between 1300 and 1800 calories every day and exercise for 20 minutes every day.
