  • I did it.....Lost 20 pounds......

    Had gained all the weight back plus more..

    I did Weight Watchers.....recently.....

    LOST 28 pounds and 12 1/2 inches...

     Weight Watchers is the real deal...It teaches you how to eat in proportions.......

    I would never try any other weight loss program again..

    barbecuingOn WW you can eat what you want to eat.....

  • I didn't want to try it. Too much protein that they have you eat. Protein is hard to digest

  • LMBO.... when it was all the rage I was only 4ys old... it came out in 1972.

    Yes, I have tried it and it does work..... but you gain those 3-4 lbs back the minute you stop.
    It is not a healthy way to loose weight... but if you just need to get into a dress for a particular event - go for it.

  • I didn't try it although I have done South Beach, which is similar to Atkins there are just more fruits and veggies that you can eat. Good Luck!

  • Yes, and the results were fantastic, I lost all 50 pounds I gained in all my three pregnancies, and kept it off.

  • No, I did not try Atkins. My MIL did though and lost weight but gained it back when she stopped. That's normal with any diet I guess if you stop dieting, LOL.
    I thought it seemed complicated or I had the book and maybe it just seemed overwhelming or something. I never actually tried it.
    I have tried Debbie Sievers Slim n 6 though and it worked beautifully...just like she promised it would.....just in case anyone out there is wondering if that's just a gimmick. I lost 15lbs in about 3-4 weeks.

  • My results were crushing headaches, heartburn and the worst constipation I've ever experienced. Ten days and I couldn't take it anymore.
