Quoting MyPurrrtyBabies:" Ohhh wow, I have never heard that. and Congrats on the 20 lb loss, 20 lbs is a lot to me and on a 5'2 ... [snip!] ... ever tried it and I don't know much about it...maybe I should look into it. Any advice/tips/info you can give me about it?"
I'm 5'2 also! Well, probably not quite, but I say that, haha.
I really like weight watchers. Everything you eat is given a point value based on their fat/carb/fiber/protein amounts. Then you have a number of points to eat a day (calculated based on your sex, your weight, and your height). Also, you're given 49 extra points a week to use if you want for anything you want, and you can turn activity points into food points. Stay under your point value and you're good!
I really like it. Like I said, I can use my extra points and stuff if I'm going out for a special dinner, or to have a piece of cake, or whatever I want. I never feel like I'm deprived, or missing out. Also, fruit adn veggies are 0 points. I started at 181 adn I'm at 162 or so now.
