My name is Victoria. I have lost over 50 lbs. I used to have an eating disorder when I was 20. I am now 26. When I stopped my eating disorder, I gained over 80 lbs in 6 months.

I am happy to say since January I have been following the Weight Watchers Core program, and go to the gym for 30 min. a day, 3 times a week. I am not usually a boastful person, but losing that amount of weight in a healthy way.. that is a big deal for me. I conquered a lot of mental/emotional hurdles and won!

I am now at 185. My trainer said at my build/muscle tone/bone structure I shouldn't go under 150. She will let me get to 145, because you tend to gain 5 lbs when you start to maintain.

I don't go to meetings or anything. I bought the Weight Watchers at home kit. Is there a maintenance kit?

Are any of you following the core program? How many of you are @home'ers?

I am getting married in December. That is a very good motivator :>

My next 10% goal is 18.5 lbs is 166.5, that means after that.. I have just one more 10% goal to reach. I hoping to reach it by mid summer.

What do you guys do to reward yourself. I have been taking monthly dayspa trips. Sometimes a facial or massage, or both if they have a special. Facials are part of my wedding prep though, so I was thinking I need to come up with a new reward. The problem with buying new clothes, is that they won't fit eventually.

Hi my name is Jen. I've been on weight watchers since October 04. Lost 23 lbs. Recently started eating more. Only took five weeks for me to gain 8 lbs. Eeek. Went back today and weighed in. 170 lbs. I hope to get down to 160 or 155. My original goal was 150. I don't see that happening. To reward myself, I usually eat something, so that has to change. Good luck!
Hey--I could relate to being eating disordered and then gaining! I was bulimic, got therapy, but GAINED 30 pounds when I stopped the ED behaviors! Now I am using Nutrisystem just to learn to eat threemeals and snacks and to have portion control. It is really helping me eat "like a normal person". So thanks for sharing and congrats on your successes and upcoming wedding!
7 to 13 stone... its extra hard i know sweetie x
My name is Molly. I don't know you at all but I'm really excited about a new group I've started. The problem is that I can't find anyone who I think would join so now I'm just searching for people interested in healthy TV dinner’s. The group is explained in the group info area. I hope that if you're interested in contributing you'll join up and tell a few of your TV dinner loving friends about it!
Thanks for your time,
