The Reason I Joined Weight Watchers Freestyle

If you follow me on Instagram ,you know that I just signed up for Weight Watchers.

They've actually recently rebranded and now call themselves WW.

The reason for the rebrand was to focus on health & wellness more than weight loss.

Needless to say, with healthier lifestyle choices, weight loss will naturally follow.

The last few months have been busy with travel, birthdays and a whole lot of take out food.

As a result, I found myself gaining 30lbs.

It wasn't until my oldest daughter took a photo of me from behind, to show me the braid she put in my hair, that I realized I really needed to make a change.

I had been feeling more tired than usual and my clothes weren't fitting anymore, but this picture was my realization that I couldn't go on like this anymore.

The last time I weighed this much was when I was 9 months pregnant.

A few months back, my grandma joined WW and within 3 months was down 30lbs and over all was feeling a lot healthier.

I decided to look it up and there happened to be a 50% off sale going on so I signed up!

There are two options for WW
1: Workshop & Digital
2. Digital 

The first option includes in person workshops and weigh ins once a week and access to the online app & website.

The second option is digital only, which is what I opted for because it was the more affordable option & I can do it all from an app on my phone. 

I'll still weigh in once a week from my home.

With the digital option I'm able to track my points, find recipes, be a part of the online community within the app.

There's also a huge community on Instagram I can turn to for encouragment and support.

Because of the promo I believe I paid something like $2.99 a week for 12 months.

Unfortunately, that promo is over but if you use this link you can sign up and get one month FREE.

The thing I love most about this program so far is that it's helping me make healthier choices for myself.

I was going to go to Mcdonalds for lunch today, but when I put it into my app and saw that it would take up nearly 3/4 of my points for the WHOLE day I opted for this healthier option instead.

There's a ton of healthy options that are zero points, like fruits, veggies, beans & lean meats.

I'll be sure to keep yall updated on my journey and share recipes and more!

    To be healthy, to feel good and look great would always be a valid reason in reducing weight.

  4. My cousins started on WW and it's being going really well for them! I used a few apps awhile back (like noom and lifesum) and, while I didn't lose any weight, I felt a lot better being conscious of my intake.

  5. I haven never tried this diet. I just try to eat more healthy and get everything my body needs. I have lost 3kg :)


  6. Ohh, I'm thinking if i should join the WW too.

  7. Aww man Weight Watchers reminds me of this awful thing I did when I was younger. My boyfriend and I at that time, walked into a WW eating ice cream. The girls were so grossed out, they said they could smell the ice cream and fat in it. It was fun then, but I am paying it with my weight now.

  8. I have been a member of weight watchers in tha past and have always had great success as I’m sure you will!Lavern Moore
