I have had some success from Weight Watchers in the past and have gone back to them time and time again but it just won’t stick with me
3 Years ago around about March 2010 - funny I always diet at the same time of year, what’s that about? anyway......I weighed 16st 4lb and started back at WW for about the 10th time in my life! Well I was successful and I lost 1st 9lb and was down to 14st 8lb not bad eh?
But I just cant do the everyday watching what I eat, I was now paying money for a meeting that I couldn’t stay to because I have kids and no-one to watch them and not doing the diet properly so not losing weight but putting it on so guess what? That’s right I QUIT!
Eventually put some of the weight back on and over the next 3 years I was ping ponging between...
However the scales aren't reflecting this at the moment. They are stuck when they really should be going down. However I'm not despondent as I know this is a pattern for me. What I must do is stick with it and then there will be a sudden large drop. And that will be so cool!

So in the evening I felt I wanted as close to the right number as possible. I searched further, found a steak entry that seemed to match, and it gave me a much higher number.
At that time I noticed that my carb count was ZERO! Wow - I'm trying low carb but I've never had zero carbs before! It was a wonderful feeling. Then to get my through the rest of the evening, I said to myself, "just wait till tomorrow - then you can have ___". But how could I remember this in a moment of weakness?
I used a fine point Sharpie and wrote a note on my right hand that said "it's just till tomorrow". It worked.
I did have macadamia nuts for a late night snack (which are mostly fat, but did give me 9 carbs). MFP...
