Weight Watchers is a great system for lots of women trying to loose weight, but it does not always work for everyone. This makes sense because there are lots of diets and healthy lifestyles out there so everyone can pick and choose their own, but I thought my findings on weight watchers were very interesting.
First, I know my Aunt Mary loves it and was on it for many years. She lost a lot of weight after childhood, and it worked for her! Congrats! But for other younger women, I am not seeing the same thing.
I am personally never tried it so I would not know, but two of my close friends are on it to get in shape. Neither of them are heavy by any means, but they wanted to loose 10 lbs. or so and tone up.
First, Kristen was on it for a year during 2009. After a year of loosing almost no weight and following the point system to a tea with regular exercise, she decided it wasn’t working for her. After that time, she decided she was just going to eat what she wanted, and work out the same amount. It has been almost another year and without Weight Watchers she has actually lost about 5 to 10 lbs. and looks amazing. I don’t understand this, but it did not work for her.
Now my other friend…Sarah. She is on weight watchers and started in January. She works out everyday and has been following all the points. She only went over the week she had her wisdom teeth taken out and couldn’t eat solid food. Anyways, she has been on it for 6 months, you can tell no results, and she has actually gained 1 lb.
Again, I am not dissing weight watchers but I found it very interesting how both 20 year olds went on the system and saw no results.
