Walking, Water, and Weight Watchers: The 3 W’s for Weight Loss

7

I’ve been working seriously to lose weight for about 2 1/2 months and a lot of people have asked me what I’m doing to be so successful. I answer: “The 3 W’s for losing weight!” Of course, they don’t know what the 3 W’s of weight loss are, so I quickly tell them, “walk, water, and Weight Watchers.” I know this isn’t a formula that works for everyone, but it certainly works for me! Water is an essential fluid everyone needs, walking is an excellent form of exercise, and Weight Watchers is a world-renowned weight loss organization that has helped millions of people lose weight and keep it off forever.

Walk:

Walking is a calorie-burning feel-good exercise that most of us do most of our lives. No other equipment is required apart from a good pair of walking shoes and comfortable clothing, hence the price is right! But the most impressive thing about walking is the health benefits it offers. Walking is easy on the joints and even relieves back pain in some people. It has the ability to lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, reduce risk of diabetes and heart disease, build muscle and strengthen bones, and of course it leads to weight loss! Try to walk at least 10,000 steps every day!

I’ve lost 24 1/2 pounds so far, but aside from the weight loss, walking daily allows me to relax mentally and I feel like it lowers my stress levels. The funny thing is, the more I walk, the more my body and mind seem to crave it. Walking has become a very healthy habit for me

Water:

A recent study showed that after drinking 17 ounces. of water, both men and women experienced a 30% increase in their metabolic rate that lasted about 40 minutes.

A few months ago I stopped drinking soda and replaced it with water. I can already feel a difference in my skin tone and of course it helps in my weight loss efforts because it fills me up and I am less inclined to overeat. Drinking water daily is definitely a habit now and it makes me feel a lot better! Drink 8.8oz. Glasses of water every day to boost your weight loss efforts!

Weight Watchers:

Weight Watchers was founded by Jean Nidetch in the early 1960s. She began holding small informal gatherings at her home to discuss weight loss. Those little gatherings grew over the years and now Weight Watchers has grown into a worldwide community made up of millions of people dedicated to the task of losing weight.

Weight Watchers is a science-backed program that promotes weight loss through healthy lifestyle changes to address mental, emotional, and physical health. Weight Watchers meetings are designed to provide motivation for weight loss, information about nutrition and exercise, and a comfortable environment in which members and leaders support and encourage one another. There are hundreds of meeting locations worldwide and Weight Watchers is now available online.

My Weight Watchers leader is amazing and I look forward to going to my meeting every week. Not only is she a wonderful role model, having lost 45 pounds herself, but she also has a natural ability to bring out the best in all of us who faithfully attend her meetings. She arms herself with science-based research, her own weight loss story, motivational quotes, workout advice and recipes; She wraps all of this in a warm sense of humor to provide us with the tools we need for the week ahead.

If you’ve been frustrated with previous weight loss attempts, try the 3 Ws of weight loss. It’s the healthy way to lose weight and I’m sure you’ll be pleased with the results!
