Hey Y'all--

My name is Sarah, I'm 25, and I just joined Weight Watchers yesterday. I was already familiar with the program as my mom lost 35 pounds on it and has kept it off (give or take 3 lbs) for 2 years now. I'm very proud of her, and she's inspired me, so for Christmas my lovely mother gave me a WW membership. Yay for Mom!! Anyhow, I'm a medical student living on a tight budget and tight time schedule, so I think that my biggest challenges are goign to be to find healthy food that I can afford and time to fix it. Exercise has always been a big part of my life and I already make time for that (it's one of the few things that has kept me sane through med school). Anyhow, I'm at 181 now. I was at 186 in May and I got it down to 176 over the summer, but obviously it's trying to come back now. I'd like to get down to about 155, but honestly I like being curvy so my goal weight is a work in progress.

Anyhow, y'all seem like a nice group of people and I'm looking for some support! Nice to meet you!

Hi! I'm new to the program as well. If you do packaged food you might be able to search some of the adds and find the frozen meals for 99 cents each. WW meals, budge low cal, Healthy Choice and a few others.

Sugar free Jello is 0 points. There are som 100 Cal snacks from Nabisco that are good. Go on line and find some of the one pot ideas and make a pot at a time. The ground chicken chili has gone 5 days now and it was so good I'm still eating it for lunch. :-)
