Weight watchers

A while ago a friend of mine had told me she was on weigh watchers and explained to me how it works. I told Jon about it since he wants to lose weight and he seemed interested but not enough.

Since the beginning of summer he has lost 20 pounds from biking everywhere but winter is coming soon and he knew biking would not be biking for a few months. So 2 weeks ago he text me while he was at school and tells me he signed up for weight watchers. I was super happy that he decided to do it.

It is super easy to do weight watchers and I have found a great website with yummy weight watchers friendly recipes. He started it right away and so far has lost 8 pounds since starting it. Woohooo! I am so proud of Jon. It is not easy losing weight, especially when you love food as much as we do.

I also started doing it with him to support him and to lose some weight before the holidays when I normally gain around 10 pounds from all the yummy food. Once I get down to the weight I want then I just go into their maintenance phase. I have never done a diet like this. I eat a ton of stuff just not any junk food.

Anyways we will see how the rest of the year goes with this for us.

I've been seriously considering WW as well. I tried it once and really disliked the meetings and quit after a few weeks. My girlfriend just tried their online program and has lost lots of weight.

Yeah their online program is pretty awesome. I am not paying for it but my husband is and we love it. If you have a smart phone you can download their app. and it is so easy to go anywhere and eat.
