Just curious if anyone else out there is on Weight Watchers. My wife and I started again last week. This is my second round with the program. The first time was in 2006 and I went from 188 lbs to 165 lbs. I stopped going to the meetings thinking I could do it on my own and I would save the money which was more needed towards my bills. I started again two weeks ago and started at 178 lbs. At my last weigh in I was down 2.2 lbs. Weighing in again on Saturday. I'm 5' 6" tall.
I'm really excited to be on the program because I don't have a lot of spare time to hit the gym and I don't enjoy tv enough to spend time on the treadmill so just learning how to eat better is what works for me. That and I've started taking the dog on some nice hour long walks through the park and woods by our house rather than just taking her to the dog park and watching her run around.
I've had some ups and downs with weight since high school. I was 195 lbs in high school and in college I got down to 159 lbs than shot back up. Because I have a larger frame I think the lowest I can really get down to without looking anorexic (sp?) is about 155 lbs.
So let me know, is anyone else on the program? Maybe we can chime in each week / weigh in with our results and be a smaller support group for each other.
I have two real motivations outside of my own physical well being and shape. 1) My uncle died five years ago due to heart failure from being really overweight (over 400 lbs). 2) My sister is overweight and I can see how hard it is for her to get around. She's going for gastric bypass next month.
