I've been on weight watchers for about a month now and I've only lost about 10 lbs. I know that losing weight takes time but I work out about 3 times a week pretty hard core and I've been following my weight watchers points plus program. Is there anything I can take (not pills) such as a natural remedy ? I'm very into holistic solutions and home remedies. If anyone knows of anything safe that can maybe help me please share.

Sorry, there is no magical potion, powder or drink. It's the old fashioned hard work and dedication that will get you where you want to be, literally. I know it's disappointing to not have instant satisfaction but really, if you lose 1-3 pounds each weigh in, you're doing very well! 10 pounds in a month sounds about right! You're on the right track, keep your chin up! You'll get there!

Ten pounds in a month is really good - in fact, more than you can probably expect in future months as you progress. Persistence is key. Drink plenty of water, eat plenty of fruits and veggies and protein and low-fat dairy. And did I mention that persistence is key - even during slow weeks?!?

Best wishes.

Ten pounds of sustained weight loss in one month is fantastic!! Boils down to about 2.5 pounds per week which for a girl is pretty substantial. As you follow your plan you are retraining yourself for a healthier lifestyle. Training takes time so don't rush it. Maybe add another day at the gym....institute an evening or morning walk?....exercise is a much better alternative to magic pills and potions. Keep at it...you are doing great Smile
