    Welcome! Weight watchers online helped me TREMENDOUSLY. I've lost about 16 lbs so far! It's REALLY taught me a lot about portion control, incorporating healthy foods into my diet, and has really set me up with good eating habits. I'm very glad I joined. I stopped tracking for a while because I was doing well on my own. I need to get back to it though, fell off the wagon on vacation and its been an uphill battle since!

    Good luck! :)

    I joined Weight Watchers on Saturday, but I had weighed myself last Friday and took all my measurements. I step back on the scale this Friday or Saturday so we'll seee. I played all weekend at the barn so that was my exercise, I usually spend about 4-5 weeks at the barn riding/doing chores/ helping BO. I'm going to take sneakers and try to fit in a walk around her property too, she's got killer hills. I hate hills.

    So tomorrow marks a week since I started weight watchers. Since I weighed myself last friday, I weighed myself this morning.

    I lost 5 pounds!! I'll take my measurements tomorrow and see if I lost any inches.

    I do like WW online. I track what I put in my mouth much better, and I've been eating a lot more fruits and vegetables, and just being overall more concious of everything. And the fact you scan items with your phone when you're shopping made it super easy (minus the weird glances I got as I scanned all the bar codes to see how many points a serving was.)

    I haven't upped my activity level at all but I'm going to this week so I can keep up the weight loss (hopefully.) I did cut back my alcohol intake severely.

    As an end of week treat, my sister and I are going to have a fire out back and cook a smore or two.

    Okay I just joined this site but I really like the purpose of this thread so I decided to "put myself out there" too.

    I am 5"5" and currently at 243.

    My doctor says that I am on the edge of being labeled a Diabetic.
    She said that if I would improve my diet and get weight off then I can change it before that label is applied.
    I truly want that.

    I would also like to get some weight off so that I can be more flexible on my horse.

    I am excited to go through this thread an look for tips and receipes.

    Well, you're the same height as me and lighter, so therefore I MUST be a diabetic Insulin! Where's my insulin?!

    Sorry, as a nurse I have a hard time believing anything a doctor says lol

    Good luck girl! This thread is just awesome
