I AM A 54 YR OLD GRANDMA WHO HAS BEEN BATTLING WEIGHT ALL MY LIFE. I HAVE HEART DISEASE, HAD MASSIVE HEART ATTACK, HAD OPEN HEART SURGERY, HAVE DIABETES, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND HIGH CHOLESTEROL AND A BONE ON BONE BACK PROBLEM THAT REALLY MAKES IT HARD TO WALK OR EXERCISE AT ALL. I STARTED WEIGHT WATCHERS ON JAN 9, 2008 BECAUSE I WANT TO BE AROUND TO SEE MY GRANDCHILDREN GRADUATE, GET MARRIED, ETC.,AND CONTINUING DOWN THAT PATH WOULD NOT HAVE ENABLED ME TO DO THAT. I HAVE A FANTASTIC, SUPPORTIVE LOVING HUSBAND AND WE ARE ANXIOUSLY AWAITING RETIREMENT. I HAVE THREE CHILDEN, 36,32 AND 24 AND FOUR GRANDCHILDREN 16,9,6 AND 4. MY DAUGHTER IS MY BEST FRIEND AND WE LAUGH ALL THE TIME. I LOVE LIFE AND FEEL I HAVE BEEN GIVEN A SECOND CHANCE SO I AM TRYING TO MAKE THE MOST OF IT AND I AM THANKFUL FOR EVERY DAY AND I AM TRYING VERY HARD TO ACCOMPLISH MY WW GOALS. TO DATE I HAVE LOST 30.8 POUNDS AND MY CHOLESTEROL AND DIABETES ARE ALREADY IMPROVING. MY ENERGY LEVEL IS BETTER TOO. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM ANYONE ALONG OUR WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEYS AND I WILL HELP AND SUPPORT THEM TOO. SO, HELLO TO EVERYONE AND I HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON. I AM SO HOPING TO LEARN SOME TIPS FROM OTHERS. THANK YOU AND TAKE CARE-GRANNY SCHAF

Caffeine Addict
Hi Angie, My husband also drank alot of diet dew and not only is the caffeine bad so is the artificial sweetner, that can cause a whole new area of problems. What I have him doing is drinking green tea. I brew it and then put a pitcher in the fridge to cool it down. I also add lemon sometimes for a different taste. It still has caffeine so you won't get withdrawl headaches but the good thing is that it actually has antioxidants to promote good health and green tea has also been known to help with weight loss, so there is another plus. If you miss the carbonation you can also brew it in LaCroix sparkling water and that relly gives it a soda feel. Good luck with this and let me know if it helps you. Granny Schaf
