Weight Watchers -- good diet , but not the life change I needed

by Mary Jackson

Weight Watchers Meetings and Weight Watchers Online -- I’ve done them both multiple times.

The key here is it didn’t stick as a new way to eat or I wouldn’t have to join multiple times.

When I go to the meetings, I get really annoyed having other fat women tell me how to lose weight. I’ve had other participants basically berate me on a week that I lost 0.5 pounds, because I eat something different for breakfast every day.

The online plan works much better for me, but ultimately I get lazy and stop entering all my food in the journal type thing and I have tons of trouble drinking enough water.

I think if I could do this plan when I have only 20 pounds to lose instead of 40-50, I might reach the maintenance phase.

If I could reach the maintenance phase I think that the plan would be wonderful because it relies on making good choices with real food. It even helps to choose what to eat at a fast food restaurant.

The flexibility of the food plan was great although most of the cookbooks that I’ve seen focus on themes that I wouldn’t normally cook.

There are some really old weight watchers cookbooks that are out of print that I’ve found in libraries with more basic American food choices (like corn chowder) that appeal to me.

To make this diet work for me I would need either cookbooks aimed at American foods or meetings that focused more on the food choices and preparation and less on the weigh-in.

I understand that the accountability of the weigh-in at the meeting drives some people. But ultimately the motivation to finish a life change isn’t to impress a room full of people you don’t know. They should refocus the meetings on giving life skills.
