Will be starting next week!

Postby Freedom » May 13th, 2006, 9:57 am

Hi everyone! I just ordered my first month's pack, and it should be here this week! I'm so excited. I ordered the sample pack- everything was pretty good (except the apple oatmeal! Yuck! And I like oatmeal.).


My name is Frances, and I live in Maryland. I'm 27 and weight 310. :cry: I've been doing Weight Watchers on and off for almost a year, have lost 35 pounds.

I want it to go a little faster than that, and I'm tired of counting. :bricks: I looked over the MF maintenance plan, and am so impressed! It totally makes sense as a life change. I'm looking forward to succeeding without obsessing! I want to retrain my body about nutrients and energy.

I'm so excited! I can't wait for it to come! :felix:

Welcome you are going to love it. I have tried WW also probably along with most the people on this forum and I can tell you this is MUCH better. No counting just 5 MFs and a L/G and you are good to go. Oh and don't forget the water. One ? have you checked with your physician yet? I am sure it is fine I just always like to be on the safe side :)

Thanks for the welcome, everyone!!

My doctor has given me the a-ok for basically anything short of surgery (he's been my doctor since I was young). He says I'm pretty healthy overall. :thumbup:

First day was not so bad! I don't like the swiss mocha, but I *love* the orange pineapple! What a great treat! The F&N bars are really good, too. Overall, I'm still really excited and pumped. I know I'm going to get the ehadaches and fatigue- I went off sugar and had a headache for 5 days, but it wasn't too bad! Getting my water won't be a problem, either, I'm ahppy to report! I got a new bottle that has 64 ounces in it, and I just mindlessly drink it. I went through 45 ounces in about an hour this way! :oops:

Even got some exercise going back and forth to the bathroom! LOL!

I can't wait to "officially" weigh in...but I've already lost a half a pound. LOL! Yay for water weight! It makes every new endeavor worth it! LOL!!!!

Thanks again for the welcome!
