I didn't wait until the new year to start loosing weight. I started late August. I have lost not as much in the beginning, but it was my own fault, I really didn't follow it like I should have. But the last couple of weeks I lose at least half a kilogram a week. I love it when things go well. Anyone else who has started to lose weight? What diet are you following? How much have you lost already? [b] Have a nice day[/b]

I love weight watchers. When I follow the plan and write down everything I eat and keep within my points, I always loose weight. I love the support that you get from the meetings. I haven't gone in about 1 yr because I really can't afford it anymore. I was at goal so was going for free, but then stopped going and gained some back. Now I am starting to count points again and hopefully it will all come back off.

You can do it, you did it once already, so you have no reason why it shouldn't work this time. When you do can afford it, you should really need to go back, the support you get is priceless. Have a nice day

Hi ya bieke81 I have no will power and find it hard to keep to diets! I can't commit to something like weight watchers as I am a single mum and would have to pay for a babysitter and also for membership and meetings!! I think my purse was on a diet not so much for me and also junk food is so much cheaper than healthier foods here in the UK!! Doesn't make sense does it?

You don't have to see it as a diet, I don't either. If I do that, I wouldn't really commit to it. I see it as a life style change. I've chosen to be more healthier, so I eat more healthier. Even my husband, who really doesn't have to loose weights, eats with me (he just eats bigger portions). I can understand the cost (and extra costs for a babysitter). But in my country you have something like WW by mail. You can order the plan and do it from your home, it's still costly, but it's only one time you need to pay. [b] Have a niced day[/b]

I have started to lose weight. I can't afford Weight Watchers, so I am trying on my own. I have a pretty simple plan and it seems to be working. I eat 2 waffles and about 6 strawberries for breakfast. For lunch, I eat a grilled cheese sandwich, about 10 pretzels, and a piece of fruit. I have an afternoon snack consisting of a handful of nuts and M&M's mixture. I eat a normal dinner, but a smaller portion. For dessert, I eat a cup of cereal. I also exercise for at least a half hour 5 days a week. So far, I have lost 10 pounds! Good luck to you!!

You're doing great. But remember, it's not only loosing the weight, you need to find a good balance between enjoying life and living a healthy life. Let us know how you are doing. Have a nice day

One of my resolutions this year was to finally take off 25 lbs and keep it off. Of course, that's been on my resolution list almost every year. I've done Weight Watchers and lost weight as I have on countless other diets. I never seem to change my lifestyle habits permanently and as a result, I always gain the weight back. So, this year, I'm doing the Bob Greene Best Life Program that Oprah is on. The first month doesn't involve changing your eating habits but you increase your exercise. I'm doing really well with that, I'm up to 10,000 steps a day with a goal of getting up to 15,000. Best of luck on the diet.

Hi Lauren, You are right, it's not only loosing the weight, we need to change our habits or we will just gain the weight right back. I hope you will have more luck wit the Best Life Plan. Let us know how you are doing. Have a nice day
