Weight Watchers Online Week 1

in Weight Watchers


Results after the first week of following the Weight Watchers Online Plan:

90.0 kg Starting weight
89.1 kg Current weight
70.0 kg Your Goal Weight

I’ve been aware for a long time that I’m overweight, I think I have been since I first got a ‘proper job’ in London back in 1987. At the time I smoked a bit too which probably kept my appetite numbed so I wasn’t always thinking about eating. I gave up smoking twice in about 1996 and 1998, but each time I stopped I seem to put on about 6kg in weight which never really went away even when I started smoking again. I’ve not smoked for about 18 years now and never really lost that weight I gained when I stopped.

From 2001 until now I have mostly been living in The French Alps in the land of cheese and wine, both of which I love dearly. This all came to a head last week on September 9, 2016 when I weighed myself and I was 90kg. I’ve never been that heavy ever, so it was time to do something about it. I also noticed some photos from a gig I did a couple of weeks ago that I was definitely looking like a fat bloke.

I joined Weight Watchers Online because the nearest meeting for me is near Grenoble, which is a good 2 hours away. I could have joined the French one, but I thought I’d rather join the UK version as it might be easier doing it in my native language. I joined for 3 months at the bargain price of £19.95.

During the first week I logged every bit of food and drink that I consumed and I really think this is the key. I also believe by having the daily budget of SmartPoints you really think about how you are going to use your points up.

For me, I will merrily skip a dessert if I can have an extra couple of glasses of wine. Pre-Weight Watchers, I would have probably had a dessert and 3 or 4 glasses of wine anyway. If I can change these little habits, I think I’ll be fine. So far my loss is 0.9kg which I’m quite happy with. In ‘old money’ this about 2 pounds which is about the maximum you can expect from a Weight Watchers Plan.

    3 months at the bargain price of £19.95. ??? is it

    good luck

    • I dug out my receipt from when I joined on September 9th, 2016, it was actually £19.42. That was a introductory offer that has now finished. WeightWatchers do seem to have lots of special offers, I’ll let you know if hear anything soon.
