I don't want to be a buzz kill, but...
I stopped using WW etools last year for the same reason, they are not very nice people over there. I just found fatsecret a few weeks ago and it has been pretty helpful, although I haven't really posted much, I do like their diet calendar and that it calculates points for you. I also use an awesome site that is free and very supportive, I haven't been there in a while mainly because I haven't really been following anything lately, but it's great for WW support, nothing like the negativity on etools.

I will email you that site information if you like. It never hurts to have all the help you can get.

Help
Believe it or not, you need to eat more. Whenever you add exercise/physical activity to your weight loss routine you need to up the amount of food (energy) you put into your body to help keep your body going.

Think about a car, it needs fuel to run, so does your body. If you put out more energy then you the amount of food you are taking in, your body tends to hold onto what it has.

That is why in Weight Watchers they give you activity points and the amount of activity points you get depends on the amount of activity and the intensity you do, you get to eat more on the day that you earn your activity points.

The concept to eat more and lose weight goes against what we have been taught for soooo many years, but it really does work. Just watch the types of foods that you eat, don't eat a bunch of junk just because you are exercising, eat high energy foods, whole grains and fruits.

New To Site
Hi Billie,

I'm fairly new to this site too, and I am at my heaviest ever, I'm only 4'11" I weigh 257, and I can't seem to stick to my Weight Watchers plan. Like you I feel like crap most of the time and am physically and mentally drained most of the time.

Although I do not have any diagnosed health problems at this time, I know that I am heading down a dangerous road if I don't get this weight off. I just lost my dad to heart disease and diabetes this past June, and my mom has heart problems as well. Both of my brothers are on blood pressure medication, so I know that up til now I have been very blessed not to have health problems, but if I don't get serious and do something about this weight, I will catch up to them and probably pass them pretty quickly.

I am 41 yrs old and have been battling with weight since my teen years.

We can encourage each other to GET HEALTHY!
