Hello all! I stumbled across this site in my MANY MANY journies through weightloss websites and I'm definately glad I did! I officially registered today and am slowly navigating my way through the TON of great info and postings on this site! I originally joined WW back in Feb of 2007 and ended up losing 47 lbs. However, I've sinced gained 20 of those pounds back and I want to stop the gain before it gets totally out of control as it did before! So, using my previous WW materials, I've started getting back to counting points, but since I'm not technically a WW member anymore I've been lacking the "accountability" portion of the program that served me so well before. I'm hoping to rectify that by joining this group (not to mention all the information and support there is to be had on here).

 

I do have a question however, how do I get that Ticker thing to attach to my postings? I made one, but is there something special I'm supposed to do to attach it to my profile?

 

Looking forward to being a member of this group! :)

 

Shannon

Hi-

I haven't been posting much lately, but wanted to let you know that I am still here and have been losing every week, slowly, but surely. I try to stay OP every day, but when I have a slip up, then I get back up and go forward again.

Still not sure if I will get confused with 'Americanisms', the different names of food, store bought food which is not available to me here, different measurements etc. etc. Please convince me???

Those kinds of things aren't the main focus of this site-- it's more about bonding with a group over a shared goal of weight loss and healthy lifestyles. I live in Canada and can't get a lot of the products that some of the American members discuss. Also, I'm wheat, gluten & lactose intolerant and have a ton of food allergies so I can't eat any processed foods. The fact that I can't eat much of the food products that people discuss doesn't diminish my participation (as you can tell from the amount of posts I've got).

 

There are members here who live in countries that don't speak English and they are still able to participate!

Kashka - welcome. I'm from Mexico. My native langange is not English but that's still not an obstacle to me. We all share the same propose " to lose weigh and maintain". I have found some great people that encourage me to follow WW as a way of life.... I've been posting since March and I feel just wonderful! Plus I can practice me English! And learn new words! Haha!

I'm a US expat living in South Korea. I usually don't find the recipes helpful since I can rarely find the ingredients, but the support and encouragement apply to everyone.
