Shedding Some Pounds

June last year I decided to lose some weight using Weight Watchers. I absolutely love their plan and it works (I lost 12 pounds in 6 weeks). It isn't a diet its just teaching you to eat right. You aren't denying yourself of things you enjoy. I can have two slices of pizza and not feel guilty. So after not being able to button up most of my jeans, I've decided to lose the weight (again--I just love my weight being like a yo-yo but I won't go into that).

Anyway, the best part is doing Weight Watchers doesn't cost a thing. You can join online for a trial membership to determine how many points you can have per day based on your weight. I then use this online calculator: and a spreadsheet to track my points. I use this web site to determine point values when I'm not using a packaged foods: Here a web site I use to figure points when I'm dining out:

This time I'm going to see if I can't join the 24 hour gym here with my co-worker and friend Maria. Hopefully she'll want to. We are doing this Weight Watchers together.

Well, wish me luck! Especially with the Super Bowl coming up. I'll just only be able to have one or two of each thing.


  1. I have been doing weight watchers since October. I hit 50 lbs last week! It definately workds.

  2. Go Becca! My mom and dad do weight watchers together, my mom is at 55, and my dad is at 40 lbs lost in 6 months. Good luck, btw, I think you look great just how you are:)
