A member of our parent panel, Mandy, has signed up for the Weight Watchers Online Plan and will be sharing her journey with us, over the next 3 months. Over to Mandy.

Hello, I am Mandy, a stay at home mom of 2 children aged 2 and 4 years of age. I have been a vegetarian for the past 10 years and when I decided to cut out animal products, I loaded up on carbs instead! At my recent physical exam, my doctor pointed out that I am need to lose 31 pounds to reach a healthy weight and suggested Weight Watchers Online, which is perfect for busy moms. I will be sharing my Weight Loss journey over the next 3 months.

I received the Weight Watchers Start Kit which is available from the Weight Watchers online store. The kit contains a Complete Food Companion Guide, a Dining Out Guide, 3 month Journal, a Motivational Book, a DVD, a recipe booklet, coupons and a Hand Held Points Calculator. The items fit neatly into a great bag which is ideal for travel.

As an online member, I have access to the Weight Watchers website which is packed with information, tools and helpful advice, to educate, inform and support me with my weight loss journey. I can connect with other members via the message boards.

I am on the Flex Plan, where I receive a certain number of points per day and additional Flex Points for the week. Every food is assigned a certain number of points and my goal is to keep within my points range for the day. In addition, I also receive additional points called "Activity Points" when I exercise.

I can totally relate. I went veg and gained 20 pounds. I am now learning how to balance protein and carbs and am on the right track. Good luck!

I didn't know that WW offered an online program. My schedule doesn't allow me time to attend meetings, so I will be looking into the online program and following your progress. Holding thumbs for you!

I love this magazine. You guys seem to deliver a little of everything. I need to lose 50 plus pounds and my doc has also suggested WW online. I can't quite face others in public at a meeting and think that an online program will be a good place to start. Its great to hear how the site supports you and offers you info to follow the program. All the best!
