Weight Watchers For Men

So, I am 5'8" and really fat, as in 330 pounds fat. I haven`t been able to stick to any diet or eat right as a lifestyle. I just signed up for Weight Watchers for Men online.

First, is anybody on this or tried it?

Second, for the life of me I can`t figure out anything about this diet. I am so confused at all of the stuff on their site and haven`t a clue where to start. Could they make it any more confusing

Can anyone here help me with this. I am getting desperate to lose weight then maintian some kind of weight that is healthy for me, which as I remember was about 190.

Also, my old scale is definitely not right, it said 286 pounds, ya right, maybe 2 years ago

Anyhoo, can some reccomend me a good quality scale that is accurate and last a long time and where to buy it?

Please Help!!

Re: Weight Watchers For Men

Go to one of the meeting locations and join up. You'll get all the help you need there, from people who know what they're doing.

Not that anyone down here doesn't.

X 1. I have lost 10 pounds on this WW For Men program so far. Energy is up, clothes fitting better, thinking of hikes to take this summer. It's all good.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Re: Weight Watchers For Men

The first time I tried this program I felt like you do now. I could not understand the processes and the information they gave was too much for me to handle. Now I am trying it again and it is working because I know how to use the information and actually use the online stuff. Try this: either get someone to show you how to use it or go to your nearest WW storefront and tell them at the desk that you need some support with the online program. It works - don't give up my brother! Get tough and get going! Orruugha....

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Re: Weight Watchers For Men

I have herd the same thing from other folks. My problem with the meetings is that my work schedule is such a mess I can't make regular meetings.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Re: Weight Watchers For Men

Yeah...she had some problems too due to w/conflicts. When she attended they started the point system which i dont know if they are still using. The Mrs shed some decent weight & liked the flexibility of the point program.

Re: Weight Watchers For Men

It's still all about the points. Excercise is the other key ingredient. Works much faster if you excercise. Even walking just 3 miles a day you'll be surprised how fast you lose the weight.

Re: Weight Watchers For Men

Thanks fellas!! I just switched to the combo(monthly meeting pass) of online and meetings. I am excited to get started and get guidance and support. My goal is to be under 200 pounds at some point in my life again before I check out

Does anyone go to meetings near Pittsburgh? My main meeting place will be in South Park at the weight watchers store and meeting place at south park shops on 88.

Re: Weight Watchers For Men

Octagon, did you ever stop to think that perhaps you're not overweight, just underheight?
