With a family history of diabetes and heart disease, 20-year old Cecelia really wanted to get healthy. Being a young woman she also felt like she was living life on the sidelines. That’s when she subscribed to Weight Watchers Online and began following the Plan.
I knew that fad diets didn’t work and I’d always thought of Weight Watchers as a great alternative. Being a student and having a crazy schedule, I knew the online Plan would fit really well into my lifestyle. After subscribing to Weight Watchers Online I realized I could fit it into my schedule whenever it was convenient. I had all the tools I needed at my fingertips 24/7! I also really loved that I could track my weight at home. That was really key for me.
Tech-savvy weight loss Being able to calculate and track my food on my BlackBerry and iPod Touch makes grocery shopping and eating out with friends a piece of cake. The restaurant guides and Message Boards give me all the advice I need if any questions come up. I’m always on the go, so being able to access my Tracker, the cheat sheets and recipes at all hours is wonderful!Staying on track I knew I’d reach my goal when I survived Christmas dinner with my family and still lost weight. It just takes planning. I prepared healthy dishes and still got everything I wanted — even gingerbread men! I stopped thinking, “I can’t eat this or that.” I can eat anything as long as I make healthier choices the rest of the day. I knew I had to change my life in order to really enjoy it. I kept envisioning the thinner, happier me and before I knew it, she was who I saw in the mirror. I’ve inspired my whole family and I have four friends who have all joined Weight Watchers after seeing my success. No longer invisible I’m no longer the invisible girl! I love my confidence and self esteem. Now I can walk into a crowded room and not have my eyes glued to the floor. Now that the weight is off I’m super confident. I’ve even decided to study abroad for a semester in London — something I would have never done before subscribing to Weight Watchers Online. I couldn’t be happier!
