HELP! Will Weight Watchers Work For Me?!?!?
Topic: HELP! Will Weight Watchers Work For Me?!?!?
May 24, 2019 / By Tisha Question:
Kay well here's the deal. As most of you know weight watchers works by trying to lower the amount of foods you eat and the intake on calories. Well I want to start weight watchers but im scared it wont for me beacuse I have been over weight for almost my whole life. This was because when I was younger I used to eat.. ALOT. But now that I'm older I dont really eat as much but I still have that weight from when I was younger sorta like baby fat I guess :p. So what im really afraid of is that im gonna join weight watchers and that what I usually eat is less then what Weight Watchers wants me to eat. So its just gonna be a waste of money. OR is it just I need to excersise more so i can get rid of all that "old" weight. I highley doubt that you understand what the question is, but I guess that all I need is some reassurence that Weight Watchers will work no matter how long you've been over weight and how much your eat daily.

YES, with certain conditions... There is NO such thing as a free lunch and there is no such thing as a magic bullet when it comes to losing weight... The problem with diets and such is YOU. Most of the time, when they fail it is your fault because you are either cheating and not following the plan exactly as written OR you are working with faulty information on calories you eat and calories you burn. Gaining or losing weight is EASY. All it takes is for you to burn more calories than you consume on a regular, daily basis and you WILL LOSE weight!. THAT unfortunately, is the problem. Willpower inevitably fails without you doing your homework. Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, and associated plans all work in exactly the SAME manner, so it really does not matter which you use, IF ANY. Like I said, calorie counting IS the key. They ALL do it. They manage portions and they manage exercise to accurately judge your calories in and out, and then adjust portions so you maintain a negative intake. The major malfunction with any plan is cheating, fibs about what you actually eat and what you actually DO for exercise. NONE of them will work if you are not honest. So, your success or failure WILL be your own doing. So, the answer to your question is: YES, provided you are completely honest with your adviser and stick to the portion controlled food they sell you. There is an exception of course. Certain medical conditions CAN affect your weight gain or loss no matter what you do with what you eat or what you do for exercise. However for an average person in relatively good health, IF you are honest and follow the rules, you WILL lose weight over time. You CAN do all of this yourself by hitting up the public library and doing some research into food, nutrition and exercise so you can accurately count calories for yourself. WHY pay someone to count calories FOR you? Teach yourself how to cook and fix a decent low calorie menu and get off the couch once in a while. Run that negative calorie balance yourself and put the money you would have spent on THEIR prepared food aside for your own retirement or for a rainy day. That is what _I_ did. I simply could NOT see spending the money... As my mom and dad used to say, why pay someone else to do what you can do for yourself?

If you are an accomplished typist - word processor and have recently visited your local city college or university librarian, you can apply as a "certified" graduate typist, earning between $1.50 to $2.00 per page for a master or doctoral thesis. The librarian will provide you with a sample of the typing template (i.e., margin settings, font selection, page set up, etc.) in order to complete these projects. An average weekend income is about $300-$400 for two days work.
You can google search for a free points determiner and calculator. The only thing you really are paying for are the interactive tools on the site ( I am on weight watchers for the second time). The first time was to lose baby weight and now i just had my second and am using it again.
Here is how you determine points value...
1. Are you
female?- score 2
Male?- score 8
A nursing mom?- score 12
2. How old are you?
17-26- score 4
27-37- score 3
38-47- score 2
48-58- score 1
over 58- score 0
3.What do you weigh?
Enter the first two digits of your weight in pounds.
(for example, if you weight 199, you will add 19 to your score)
4. How tall are you?
Under 5’1- score 0
5’1-5’10- score 1
Over 5’10- score 2
5. How do you spend most of your day?
Sitting down? score 0
Occasionally sitting? score 2
Walking most of the time? score 4
Doing physically hard work most of the time? score 6
Add them up this is your total.
Now here is the the link to the points calulator..http://webmilhouse.com/pointcalc.php
If you tried this on paper for a few weeks and it works out then maybe you would like to try it online. Its only about 40 bucks for 3 months. The site has lots of recipes, message boards and interactive tools to make your weight loss a little more exciting, and less mundane. Hope that helps.

Believe it or not you can loose more weight by eating a healthy diet consisting of 1400-1600 calories per day than you could if you were eating under 1000 calories a day. Doesn't make sense but it is true. Your body needs fuel to do its job properly and if you are not providing enough fuel it will convert more of what it gets into fat for energy later. So many people go about trying to diet the wrong way an it will always backfire. Treat your body right, make healthy food choices, get a little exercise and the rest will take care of itself.
You may feel like you are eating more with weight watchers but stick to healthy, natural food choices and you will still lose the weight.

It does work if you stick to what it tells you and of course it is going to be less than what you eat now. The idea is to eat less to lose weight, you can't expect to eat the same or you're going to stay fat. It has worked for several of my friends.
