I found out about this site from an old, formerly long lost friend, so I am going to give it a try.
I joined Weight Watchers on November 29, 2007 (with a starting weight of 196) after struggling with my weight for the better part of the last 17 years (when my daughter was born!). For about 7 years, I was able to blame the fluctuations on pregnancies as I had a baby every other year.... but now, my kids are 12, 15, 16 and 19, so I can't really call it "baby fat" anymore :).
Since joining, I have lost 28 pounds, but still have about 33 to go to get where I want to. It has been helpful, to say the least, that my husband has not only been supportive, but is actually following the plan and has lost about 35 pounds as well.

As of July 14, I have lost a total of 51.8 pounds to be at 144.4 and am now within my healthy range. Amazingly, my hubby doesn't like the new me! But I do, and I am so much more confident and healthy.

I made lifetime Weight Watchers membership today-- 8 months after starting on this journey!! I am down 53 pounds to date. My ultimate goal was 135, but I'm okay with where I am now, so we'll see if I feel that I need to go down any more as time goes on. At least I know this can be done!! I have made it to my healthy weight range!!

Well, time for an update... Have not been good about staying on track. I go once a month to a meeting to know that I am not within my goal weight. I have not been able to maintain and have finally decided again that I need to get back on track. I plan to use the site to monitor my points better again.
