Weight Watcher diet weight loss seems slow.....

I'm wondering if my weight loss of 1 lb in 3 weeks means the WW diet isn't working for me or should I be more patient? [My clothes seem a tad bit looser :), but not much]

Stick with it it will work, remember the longer it takes to loose the weight, it is more likely to stay off!! Keep up the good work and remember 4 sticks of butter is 1 lb. Pick 1 up and you will be suprised how heavy it is. You are that much lighter.

it depends on a lot of things- how much weight do you need to lose? I also think that certain foods help you lose weight quicker. If you are eating low calorie processed foods, those will not help you lose weight quickly. More of a whole grain, veggie focus will help here. Remember that all fiber is not created equal. Many food makers add "fake" fiber into foods to qualify for a low Point value. Real fiber in veggies and beans goes a lot further here. A good way to gauge is are you hungry? If you are then more real food will help.

Weight Watchers

The last comment is on target. I did Weight Watchers in 2000 and lost 35 pounds in eight months but I did it with the frozen dinners, like Lean Cuisines and Smart Ones, and was often hungry. I very seldom lost more than one pound a week, which I would consider slow weight loss. After I stopped going to meetings and journaling, I gained it all back.

Eating veggies and fruits is much more filling and satisfying. (Not saying that a Lean Cuisine is necessarily bad...but have a salad with it or an apple afterward for dessert.)

Have you made the WW veggie soup? Basically, it's fat free chicken or beef broth with any kind of veggies you want to put in it. If you put in green beans, broccoli and such, then it's a free food and you can have a bowl for 0 points. Putting in potato slices (and maybe carrots, too, I think) make a bowl 1 point, which is still not bad. Have that with a piece of baked fish or chicken and you'll be full. Think of protein, veggies and fruit as most of the diet and Weight Watchers will work for you. Good luck!

Please remember!!!

If you lose just one pound a week, that means by the end of the year, you will have lost 52 pounds!!!!! That's huge! If you have a lot to lose, then 1 pound a week is actually best for you. The faster you lose your weight, the less time your skin has to shrink itself! This means you will have a lot of skin just hanging off of you and you may not be happy with it!
If you lose two pounds a week that's 104 pounds in one year! That's actually a lot of weight!!!! Stick with it! It's worth it.
Also, go get a metabolism test to see how many calories you burn per day. It's not that much money, and it's really worth the time!

Remember the pounds didn't all come on quickly. Plus look at your exercise routine - you may be adding lean body mass (muscle) in place of the fat. The scale will move, just be patient. Also, be sure you record EVERYTHING you eat - those little nibbles count too.

If you stick with it and lose weight slowly it will be healthy and stay off! I am a lifetime member of WW and eat sensibly without following any sort of point or diet system, exercise regulary and have kept all my weight off!

Are you using all of your flex points? WW recommends, for faster weight loss, to try not to use your flex points. They're there more in case you slip up, so you don't have to get mad at yourself. But the weight comes off quicker if you don't use them.

Per the last post, in my ww it was never suggested to not use your Flex Points and that it was actually worse for you if you didn't...

Points

I agree. It was said to make sure you eat all your points - if you aren't doing the core plan. My weight loss has been really slow, too. I need to be a better planner and stick with the exercise. Now that summer is here, I'm praying for a lot more time to pay attention to exercise and what I'm eating. Just remember to stay positive. Fast weight loss is unhealthy weight loss.

It is unhealthy to lose at a faster pace than 2lbs per week. Slow and steady is a good way to lose weight, b/c you're probably doing something you can maintain forever. However, if 1lb in 3 weeks is too slow for you, then clearly you are eating too many calories for your desired weight loss.

Yes, you are supposed to use all of your daily points. But flex points are for special occasions. If you aren't losing as fast as you want to, cut the points, or at least some of them. Or, work out more. Or both.

WW isn't the end-all, be-all of weight loss. Their calculations of how many points each person needs are a good starting point, but everyone is different. You may have a different body type or slower metabolism than the "standard." So you may need to tweak their recommendations to fit your own personal goals.

But, in the end, if you are happy with the rate of weight loss, stick to what you're doing.

One thing I always do with my WW points. If I am within 3 or 4 lbs of needing to drop a point becuase of weight loss and I'm having trouble I drop that point early. Seems to kickstart things for me. And it is really typical for people to plateu after losing a bit of weight. If you go to the meetings talk to your leader. If not, get some one, one of your friends who is losing weight also or a group or team member, to look through your log for a week and see what your trouble spot might be.

Another thing I've heard works but never have tried is switching plans, if you are on points switch to core if you are on core switch to points. Seems to restart things for people.

With the Super Bowl and Sochi Olympics rapidly approaching, gangsters are seeing dollar signs Wholesale Jerseys 2016 .Sophisticated crime rings are developing pop-up e-marketplaces and sourcing cheap apparel from abroad, readying to profit millions of dollars selling counterfeit goods to unsuspecting deal hunters Stitched NFL Patch.More than $17 million worth of Super Bowl 2013 merchandise -- from fake jerseys, hats and jackets to tickets and other souvenirs -- was seized last year, according to U.S. Immigration and Customers Enforcement.

While the NFL has forced the shutdown of more than 2,500 websites offering counterfeit team merchandise
  • Movie Football
  • , the federal government arrested a dozen people ahead of this year's Super Bowl and the Sochi Organizing Committee pledged to implement a more effective response to the theft of licensed Olympic gear
  • Winnipeg Blue Bombers Jersey
  • , the hill is steep.Without further consumer awareness, defeat is like a large-scale game of whack-a-mole, said David Sugden, an attorney specializing in grey markets at Call & Jensen.“Whenever there’s demand for anything --whether it is sports memorabilia or airplane parts -- you’re going to find there’s an effort from dishonest entrepreneurs to sell dishonest products,” he said.Brands may succeed in shutting down one
  • Atlanta Falcons Jersey
  • , but two more are always waiting in the wings.Traditional crime rings are attracted to the ease of importing apparel over, say, drugs and narcotics, and can quickly develop a website for the sale of illicit merchandise
  • Baltimore ravens Jersey
  • . The sites can also be written in such a way that the actual ring leaders are difficult to prosecute.

    And it's extremely lucrative
  • Indianapolis Colts Jersey
  • . Despite the fact that some of these counterfeited products are indeed far superior to their legitimate counterparts, thieves oftentimes price them in the same ballpark so as to maintain the ruse that the products being purchased are real
  • Buffalo Bills Jersey
  • .“It allows you to maintain the margins of legitimate goods, making it an extremely attractive business with a very low barrier to entry,” said Fred Feldman, chief marketing officer of brand protection firm MarkMonitor
  • Chicago Bears Jersey
  • , which works with the NFL.It’s also easier to fool a shopper online, whereas consumers tend to be more cautious of a random man selling t-shirts out of the back of his truck in the rear of the stadium parking lot.

    “Prior to Internet commerce
  • Cincinnati Bengals Jersey
  • , counterfeiters were often outside of stadiums or in flea markets or just on city streets,” said Sugden. “That kind of environment suggests to a reasonable consumer that this stuff probably is not authentic.”

    Of course, some shoppers looking for
  • Cleveland Browns Jersey
  • a deal are willing to sacrifice the quality. In fact, a MarkMonitor survey from 2012 found that these deal hunters are 20 times more likely to buy counterfeit than regular consumers.

    “Consumers have become more price sensitive and understand that one of the powers of the Internet is to compare and contrast prices to find the best deal NFL ,” Feldman said.

    With millions of revenue on the line, that has become a nightmare for brand owners.
