My confession about weight loss (please don't laugh)

I confess that when I would see advertisements for weight loss programs such aas Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, etc. and it would say "results not typical"...............

I truly thought that meant, that typically, even if you follow the diet exactly and do everything correctly, you typically won't lose that much weight as the success stories. I seriously thought that.  I now know that "results not typical" means that is for people who did not follow the diet like they were supposed to!!!

I also thought that when people would say "I tried this diet but it didn't work" or "that diet didn't work for me"
that they followed the diet exactly but they could not lose the weight. I know now that when they say that they really mean they tried the diet but couldn't stick to it.

I seriously thought that there were some people that no matter how hard they tried or what they did, how much they exercised or how much dieting they did, they would always be overweight. Seriously.

That is why I was not too optimistic about losing weight.  But I have now lost almost exactly 50 pounts. Started at 180, now I'm 131.

THANKS!!! I lost some on nutrisystem, and the rest by counting WW points. Didn't pay for WW though, just found the info for free online :) Also, exercise. I work out 6 days a week at a gym. THANKS

 How long did it take you to lose it? I need to lose 45lbs before my wedding in April of next year.
