Hi there, this is my first post on these boards. I have been doing WW since February and lost 12 lbs, and went on a Hilton Head vacation the beginning of June and gained 6, but has lost about 3 since returning. Today my mom and I joined Curves and I am really excited about it. Thanks for all the posititve posts about the program. I am so excited that my mom joined with me as well. She NEVER had a weight problem, but almost 2 years ago quit smoking and put on a bunch of weight I have always been a good 25-30 lbs overweight and have done WW several times in the past. I am definatley looking forward to encouraging and receiving encouragement from all the nice people on these boards!!
