Bec's weight-loss story

From soup diets and fasting to weight loss shakes and meal delivery plans, when it comes to losing weight, Bec says she’s tried a million different things. As well as feeling hungry 24/7, when none of them worked, she was left feeling completely unmotivated, too. But when a friend recommended WW everything changed.

"I’ve always been quite a heavyset person but content with my appearance. But one day I went to the doctors for a check-up, I felt embarrassed to jump on the scales. When I saw what my weight was, I felt overwhelmed and at breaking point. Something had to change."— Bec

Q&A with Bec

Why has WW worked for you when other weight loss programs haven’t?

“WW is realistic and sustainable. It’s about eating normal, everyday food and just making healthier choices, while still having the flexibility to enjoy your favourite treats, so it’s not a weight loss diet or program that you do and then stop. It’s also really simple to follow and I know I’ll maintain my newfound healthy habits for life, thanks to the guidance WW has given me. And being able to add PersonalPoints by eating more vegetables, drinking more water and staying active not only keeps you motivated, it actually encourages you to take the healthier option.”

How does the WW app help you make healthier choices?

“The WW app makes it so simple to check a food’s PersonalPoints value and to understand what a healthy portion looks like, which has been one of the biggest dietary changes I’ve been able to make thanks to WW. All you have to do is scan an item’s barcode. WW’s database of everyday food items is so vast – I’ve never been unable to track an item. The app also makes it really easy to identify and choose ZeroPoint foods.”

What surprised you about being a WW member?

“I found that WW has given me a much better understanding of the food I’m putting in my body – I probably wasn’t expecting that.”

“Plus, WW hasn’t just changed my appearance, it’s improved my wellbeing. It’s given me some much-needed structure in so many areas of my life, not just around what I’m eating.”

What’s your advice for someone who thinks WW will be like everything else they’ve tried?

“If you’ve tried so many ridiculous and unsustainable diets like I had, without seeing results, you won’t look back after joining WW. My best advice is just do it – you won’t regret it. Start where you are with what you have, take the initiative day by day and you’ll be amazed by how much you can accomplish just by showing up for yourself.”

So, tell us how you feel these days?

“Before I joined WW, I felt sluggish, helpless and so unhealthy. Now I feel strong, energetic and happy. WW has helped me turn my life around to become the person I’ve always wanted to be. I have confidence in myself and the courage to do anything. I’m really proud of how far I’ve come, but I’m also really excited for what’s ahead as I continue to strive on my ‘better health’ journey. Not I know I’m worth looking after and feeling good about. I’m so glad I found WW.”
