You go girl! Always remember that your health is what's important, not how you look. Especially NOT how you think you look to others.

WW is simply the best method. I myself had joined Overeaters Anon a few years ago. I still follow some of its tenets. The damnedest thing is, the 12 Steps really works. It absolutely works, and I became anorexic! Great for substances you really NEED to quit, not so good for food... :^)

way to go, Linda.
I did WW a few years back and I lost 45 pounds.... it's a good program. Encourages eating the right foods-- not starving yourself or cutting carbs--and doing both starving and carb cutting proves to be quite detrimental to one's health.

Keep up the great work! You are on your way!

thanks for your support . the weather is and hot sowalking my airedale terrier dog penny is a joy so i am getting tons of excercise :0)
the one thing i like about weightwatchers is it encourages you to eat a little bit of everything . weightwatchers even make low fat cakes so you can have a nice treat now and again without busting your diet . actually diet is a 4 letter word not to be mentioned in polite company . i am on a healthy eating and excercise plan .
cheers

Oh, the Twelve Steps. That's for addicts. There's Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anon, and there's even Overeaters Anon. on the presumption that some people are addicted to eating.

The first step is to admit you have the problem, then there's a step where you accept a higher power (however you believe in God) and turn yourself over to it, when your cravings become too much for your own shoulders... There's a step where you make amends to people you've hurt through your substance abuse. Anyway, there are 12 steps to the program. Has helped a LOT of people. But it made me stop eating altogether!
