I am on my second week of WW, I get weighed tomorrow for the 2nd time!My first week was great, lost 4.4 lbs!!!
I just couldn't believe it. I am actually eating MORE in quantity, and MUCH better quality.
I still have a ways to go and weight to shed...but I am motivated.
6 months is still quite some time. Hit the gym, GO to the WW meetings and stay motivated. You want to look HOT at your wedding and in a bathing suit, so get to it.
Weight Watchers works, simple as that, AND YOU KNOW IT,,,,Been there done that, no?
Feel free to message me on here We are all in this together!
Don't forget, the weight loss is nice for the wedding, but fabulous for your health and self esteem for the rest of your life. Stick with it hun!

Tata - 6 months is a long time so don't panic. Like estella1007 said, you have some extra time on your hands to excercise (if you can't spring for a gym membership, just head outside for a long walk every day). You can also dedicate some time to finding recipes and planning healthy meals. ;-)
Jessica - by all means, girl, have the hamburger! Just make it yourself with extra lean ground beef, a whole wheat bun, lowfat cheese and NO mayo (if you're the mayo on a burger type). The trick is to satisfy the craving with a healthier, lower fat/calorie option. I can't live a day without chocolate so I've learned lots of ways around the cravings.
Stick with the program ladies - it really does work!

I have 11 months to go until the wedding. I really want to lose the weight in the next five months though. I saw what my sister had to go through when she bought her wedding dress than lost 50 lbs. They can only take in so much!
So I'm going to really try this week. I think knowing that I have 11 months to go is giving me a license to let myself go and "start on Monday". Well tomorrow is Monday!
P.s. for those of you who have done the old Weight Watchers program and are now doing the Momentum program, what do you think? Iâ€™m not seeing a big difference personally.

I also found this incredible chile cilantro sauce that has .5 grams of fat and use that for fajitas. Just cook chicken,peppers, and onions, and leave out the tortilla and serve it on a plate with some low fat cheese on top and light sour cream. Like I said, I kinda diet. I eat yummy things, but make substitutions to make them healthier. It seems to be working so far.

I joined Free Diet Plans at SparkPeople and it has really been helpful. You set goals and input what you eat and it tracks all of your food and workouts. You can also make a "sparkpage" kinda like a facebook or myspace and share with others your food & fitness tracker. Here is a link to mine so far: SMACKKAT's Shared Food & Fitness Tracker - Tuesday, May 19, 2009
Its an awesome support system and its been helping me stay motivated
