My sister had my little Nephew last December and my other sister got engaged shortly after, so we had our minds on dropping the lbs before the big day. I didn't want to lose much, just half a stone. So my sister suggested Weight Watchers (WW), as this worked so well for her and my Mammy in the past. She lost 2 stone after her second child and the weight literally dropped off of her. So I said I would give it a go. Now, I know I’m generally quite petite, but I only wanted to lose a few pounds and what have I got to lose (excuse the pun)? The woman did warn me I would have harder fat to lose so it may take a while longer. I got to my goal weight and I was really pleased. Not only that, but the meals are so good! The system is easy if you stick to it. Each woman gets weighed and daily points are given according to this and your situation. For example, if you are breast feeding you get more daily points allowance. The standard amount is 26 points with a pro point allowance of 49 points for the week. So for example, if you stick to 26 points a day you could use your 49 points for a night out at the weekend drinking or going to a restaurant. For me I only really do it from Monday to Friday and I buy the Weight Watchers meals from the fridge and from frozen. My FAVOURITE is Red Thai Curry - SO flavoursome and a nice portion. You might think that there isn't enough in the Weight Watchers meals, but there really is. For lunch I would have one of these or two crumpets with a slither of butter.
There are a number of famous people who have used this diet and it has worked wonders for them!
Have you been on Weight Watchers before? If so, what did you think? Are there better diets out there in your opinion? Let me know your thoughts; just contact me on the back of here, visit my Facebook page or tweet me @triciabaxter.
In the meantime, why don't you enjoy some music from our Patsy's ex: Oasis - Rock N' Roll Star.
