    I am a bit of a yo yo dieter - I have been dieting ever since I was a teenager, and my role model for this was my mom of course. In fact one of my very early memories of going shopping with mom and her buying a diet shake mix.

    Well... I have a little girl who is almost three and I have been thinking about things and I really need to break this cycle of crash diets, losing 5 kgs and picking up 10 once I have lost motivation. I do not want my little Claire Bear growing up with me and my bad self image as a role model.

    I have a way to go to lose all the weight I have picked up over the last few years but I am hoping that by joining WW and adopting a healthier lifestyle and diet, I can break the pattern once and for all.

    Any thoughts or encouragement welcome!!!

    Congratulations! I am also trying to have a healthier life. Weight Watchers is a great group and will keep you motivated. Way to go!

    Hey Princess, way to go. I hope it helps you. You are so young and if it helps you to be healthy and look better then go for it.

    I have been thinking of doing the same thing. I have got MS and disc degeneration and can barely walk. This is a new problem but now I get very little exercise and the weight starts to creep on.

    Wish we could go on a diet together....

    Good Luck and I will be rooting for you. Its a very healthy diet. I went on it after I had my last baby. I lost the baby weight within 2 months. They also have such great recipes and you are never hungry with this diet. I have the weight watchers recipe books if you need any recipes. The Chicken Parmasean recipe is so good, its like restaurant food. Its my favorite

    Congratulations! I recently changed my dietary habits entirely. I stopped sugar, anything with corn syrup, cake, cookes, no white flour products (dinner rolls, white bread, biscuits, etc). I don't do pasta anymore but I will eat wheat or rice pasta. I also cut out drinking fruit juice because of the high sugar content. It's all natural and is health but will slow your metabolism. I still eat all kinds of meat but I stick to complex carbohydrates. I do fruit and veggies as well. I started eating every 3 hours including lots of protein.

    In three and a half months I lost 20 pounds. I need to lose about 15 more to hit my goal weight and throw myself a celebratory bash (I hope the Witnesses don't take this as me idol worshipping myself).

    Thanks for the message Akira! Good luck to you too!

    Velvy - Feel free to send me any great recipes! Thanks for the encouragment! The thing is I am only 30, but I fell lots older - I am sure that if I lose weight, I will feel so much better about life!

    Easyreader - wow - did you do this by yourself or through a group? I think that is fantastic! Just dont undo all the good that you have achieved at your celebratory bash!

    Congratulations Princess Daisy Boo,

    weight watchers is a great program and if followed you can't help but loose weight....I joined in 2003 and lost 40 pounds, I found out I was diabetic last year and have lost an additional 30 pounds since then.

    You can do it and you should do it for yourself, it's a lifestyle change and one that you will not regret making.
