For the last 1 1/2 months I have been going to Weight Watchers here in Alameda. As of this week, I have lost 9 1/2 lbs. Its almost 2 lbs a week a little under but weight watchers says that 2 lbs a week is a good weight loss, not more. I really like the program. You can either do it online with etools or you can go to the meetings or both. I do both. I like the meetings because it gives me accountability. The weight is taken every week by computer and it is there in black and white and it is motivating when I see the lbs coming off. It has not been all smooth sailing for me. There was a week when i did gain .2 of a lb. I had to hold myself back from feeling down because of that loss. It happens to many. The leaders are great, very supportive and motivating. They have to have been a weight watchers member and kept off the weight in order to be a leader. This is good because you know the leaders have been through what you are going through and they know what they are talking about.
