My Story In June of 2001, I received my box of supplies for WW at home. I poured over the materials, and a week later, after returning from a vacation, I dove in. My starting weight was 218. I followed the program to a T, and was one of the lucky ones who lost quickly. (I truly believe I was lucky, though I also was a bit commando in my approach and was OP every single day those first few months.) I was down 20 pounds by the beginning of August, and about 40 by sometime in October. The next 30 came off a little more slowly, but I vaguely remember that it was probably around March that I hit my goal weight. I never worked out once. I stayed near there for the next 6 years, with a little fluctuation. Then I quit smoking .and used that as an excuse to put the pounds back on. So here I am now...ready to let go and begin again! I had a starting weight of 194.5 on Monday, September 24. Unlike every other time I started, I actually hadnt planned on jumping back in to WW. (In which case I would always have a last supper the night before that was disgustingly high in points and usually revolved around fast food and super size!) I simply woke up that morning, weighed myself, and said, Im done with this! and jumped in with tracking breakfast. I have been an on again/off again member online for years, and have typically not cancelled my membership in hopes that the money would encourage me to get back on track. It has never been the motivating factor thought, but it made it easier to get back to it.
