Ive been on Weight Watchers for over 4 years (on and off), Ive had great success with the program, I lost 45lbs in a little over 5 months when I was in highschool. However, it seems like once I get down about 20-30 pounds I start to flare up....Im really not sure why...I think it might have to do with the huge increase of fruits and veggies that I eat when I follow the program. Ive never really exercised while doing it, but I have just recently joined a gym and go 3-4 times a week for an hour each time, and dont eat AS MUCH fruits/veggies as I have in the past. Also, most if not all of the fruits that I eat I blend into a smoothie so my body can digest it a little easier, no yogurt (doesnt agree with me) just ice, a little bit of water, and whatever fruits I choose, more like a slushie consistancy Im losing the weight much slower then before, but it is coming off at a rate that is to be expected for what my body is able to handle, between 1-2 pounds a week, which is a good rate to lose anyways.
