How much weight did you lose on Weight Watchers?

I started the Weight Watchers points system 8 weeks ago and I’ve only lost 12lbs…I am a fairly large woman with 179lbs more to lose in order to get to my goal weight…I wish the weight would drop off faster…
I’d like to know from Weight Watchers clients (former or present), what were your results and how long did it take to reach your goal? If you used another means of weight loss, please share. I am just weighing out my options (no pun intended). Thank you in advance for your responses!

    It is different for everyone, if you are heavier you will lose more weight than someone lighter if you’re doing the same task. It also depends on how long you keep it up for and how much extra exercise you do will taking the diet. Honestly none of these diets work – yes they may work for losing weight however you cannot live on point systems for the rest of your life and so when you quit the weight will just flood back on. The way to lose weight is change your lifestyle. Try to cut out sweets, still allow yourself chocolate but just eat dark chocolate, this is healthier. Instead of eating bread – which is very fattening, eat Ryvitas instead (these are way healthier). You should also walk to places. If something is up the road instead of driving, walk or get on a bike. I can guarantee this will work.

    Weight Watchers is set up to help you lose about 1-2 pounds a week. Generally the first couple weeks you will lose more but it is a slow but healthy process. I have been doing it for 16 weeks and have lost 22 pounds. My wife lost 50 in 6 months and has kept it off for 2 years now. She still counts points and we both will for the rest of our life. Not sure why Olivia thinks it can’t be done, it is basically just counting calories.

    12 pounds in 8 weeks is a really good number. Don’t be discouraged that it is happening slowly cause if you quit it won’t happen at all. Here are some tips that may help:

    1. You’ve lost 12 pounds – did you adjust your daily point allowance. Every time the 2nd digit of your weight changes you lose 1 point.

    2. Only use the 35 weekly points if you have a special occasion such as a birthday party or such, and then use as little as possible.

    3. If you haven’t started exercising this can really help kick start the weight loss. Start of slowly with a casual stroll as far as you can handle and work your way up from there.

    4, Do not add extra points for exercising. Remember, the goal is to lose weight

    5. Be sure you are calculating points correctly. If you have more than one serving of something you must recalculate the points multiplying the calories, fat & fiber by the number of servings.

    The site below is a handy reference site for WW with points for dining out, food lists, recipes, articles and more. Good luck and don’t throw in the towel. If you stick to the program there is no way that you won’t lose weight.
