I have been a paying Member of WW since April 7, 2011. Since joining WW I have lost over 15lbs and recently earned my 16 week clapping hands charm for my keychain. (You get a keychain when you reach your 10% lost)
Prior to WW I counted calories for 1 solid year...almost exactly...I joined WW 2 weeks before it was 1 full year. During my period of strictly counting calories and going to the gym 2-3 times a week, I ONLY lost 28lbs. That is 28lbs in 352 days. I am no genious, but I am highly intelligent and DO know that that just doesn't make any sense.
I decided to join WW after the New Year because I gained 10 of those 28lbs back over Thanksgiving and Christmas of 2010. After Christmas I just COULD NOT lose any weight again no matter what I did, what I ate or how many times I worked out.
Now my Primary Physician advised me to join WW a long time ago and I didn't listen...until now.
So let's recap my situation:
1 year of calorie counting = 18lbs lost
4 short months of WW = 15+ lbs lost
Would I recommend WW to anyone trying to lose weight...ABSOLUTELY!
