Why Weight Watchers Did Not Work For You

Are you in the Weight Watchers program? Are you still struggling to lose weight? There are many stories surrounding Weight Watchers, some people seeing great results and some people not only did not lose any weight, they might have gained more weight instead.

Well, the fact is that Weight Watchers is not a miracle pill. Same as with any other dieting programs, the success of the diet or program boils down to YOU. Let me tell you again : There is no magic formula or any pills which will help us shed the pounds instantly in a healthy way.

Thus you must learn and understand the far deeper reason behind the failure of Weight Watchers program or any other program for that matter : Why do so many of us fail when it comes to dieting and following a program such as Weight Watchers?

3 major reasons are as follows :

Reason 1: Not following through all the way with the plan

The biggest mistake that many of us make is not sticking to the plan. If you join a program such as Weight Watchers, you have to pay a membership fee so it is essential that you have the commitment needed to go into the plan and follow it through by sticking to it. The whole gist of Weight Watchers is to rely on the person to keep track of what they eat. Further more, there is an added advantage of the support that Weight Watchers gives to members. Weight Watchers relies on a points system whereby a point value is assigned to each food based on the amount of calories and fat content within that particular food. So a person is then allowed a certain number of points throughout the day which is calculated based on their sex and weight.

You must understand that this system will work if you keep strictly to the number of points allowed per day. However, if you continually goes over the recommended daily allotted amount of points, then of course you are not going to lose weight and in fact, could in fact gain more weight instead!

Reason 2 : Failing to keep a journal

It is essential for a plan such as Weight Watchers to be successful that you keep a journal and write down all the foods that you consume each day. Indeed, simply relying on your memory to keep count is not good enough. No one is perfect, more so with memory. If you keep forgetting what you ate, no matter how small it is, you could also conveniently forget all about that nibble you had with your coffee or tea each day. All the little nibbles can add up easily and quickly! If you are going to be successful with the Weight Watchers program then you have to keep a written journal and include every single point that you put through your lips strictly.

Reason 3 : Guessing

Do you know that by guessing the number of points in a plateful of food, you are on the track to failure? Simply by being lazy and by repeatedly underestimating the number of points you are eating, you can never expect to lose weight. Thus do not guess the number of points in your plate of food!

Plus there are many who misunderstand the system because certain foods such as vegetables have no points so long as you measure that amount in one cup. Many are also misled to think that you are allowed as many vegetables as you wish and it’s still classed as no points. Well then, by assuming that those food carries no points, you can easily overeat and the points do add up! Always be sure you totally understand the points system of a program like Weight Watchers and if in doubt ask a representative or an experienced user for advice on calculating using the points system.

Bottom line is that any type of diet requires a change in your lifestyle and that requires your willpower and determination. Weight Watchers is no exception, only by following the guidelines set out will you be successful in your weight loss program. Do proper calculation of points, keeping a written account if everything you eat is essential to making the program work. You must also stick with it over time until you reach your weight goal. To maintain the weight, you need to keep to a healthy lifestyle which includes eating healthily and going for regular exercise.
