If any of you out there that may come across this blog or that reads it every once in awhile are like me you’re always looking for a plan that works for you that will help you stay on track and lose weight. I did Weight Watchers for awhile, and it worked, I won’t say it didn’t, but it was ‘very’ expensive for me to handle at that point in time and to buy all the foods they suggest was getting even more expensive.
To me, the motto of Weight Watchers is the whole thing…it’s a life change. You have to be willing to change the way you think and eat…but not totally in my opinion. I think that if you actually excersise and eat sensibly, without totally overhauling your life, it’s all about moderation; that you will lose weight or keep yourself at a happy medium. I came across the following website on a message forum the other day and have been using it, SparkPeople. It gives you exercises ideas and videos on how to do them, recipes to keep your meals interesting, they will even go so far as to create a meal plan for you and give you a shopping list for each week. The BONUS of it all is that it’s FREE!!! They allow you to track your food and exercise and weight loss all right there. There are forums with people just like me that are willing to be there to keep me going when I may want to quit.
I’m impressed with it. And if I actually use it to it’s fullest potential I may actually meet my goal. Check it out sometime if you’re looking for something to help boost you along…it’s at SparkPeople.
