How to Finally Lose
that Unwanted Weight

by Barbara Brabec
Posted January, 2016


WHEN I JOINED WEIGHT WATCHERS online on April 27, 2015, I weighed an embarrassing 240 pounds. By adhering to this program's guidelines and then "doing it my way," Iíd lost 32 pounds by the end of the year, and I did it without going to any motivational/support meetings and without using Weight Watcher (WW) recipes, which donít work for me for a number of reasons.

I left the online program at the end of December because I could no longer justify paying the $19.95 monthly fee when the only thing Iíd ever done online was to use the siteís points calculator tool. By then, however, I no longer needed WW because Iíd learned everything I needed to know to continue this eating plan on my own. More important, Iíd written my own "Weight Watchers Points Bible" of every food item I normally eat plus every ingredient I use in cooking and baking so I could calculate my lifetime collection of favorite recipes with WW points.

By using my own recipes and continuing to eat the wide variety of foods I've been enjoying on the WW eating plan, I'm confident that Iíll continue to lose 1/2-1 pound a week until I reach my target weight and be able to maintain it as long as I live. For me, it's no longer a matter of wanting to do this, but needing to do it to remain independent in my older age.

This is a long article, so Iíve divided it up into helpful sections and spread it over four pages. The following T/C will link you to individual sections below and on the following pages, each of which has a link to bring you back to this page:
