Success Stories

Misty Felt Free

“I've been on and off WW since 2005 and WW Freestyle™ really has been the way I've lost weight the most successfully.”

Misty lost 12 lbs*

*People following the WW program can expect to lose 1-2 pounds/week. Misty lost weight on a prior program and is continuing on WW Freestyle™.

In Misty’s words:
I’ve joined WW many times over the past 11 years. In 2007, after having my first child, I hit my highest weight at 220 pounds. I lost most of the weight I gained after my second child on WW, but I always quit before I reached my goal weight. I would kid myself, I was good with my weight but deep inside I wanted better for myself. Last year, I joined again to try to lose those last 20 pounds. I was almost 40 years old and I truly wanted to be the best version of me.

A smooth transition

Embracing change
I like change. I was thinking I needed to change my menu anyway as I was feeling stagnant. It's all mostly foods I like anyway. I transitioned really easily to WW Freestyle. It has encouraged me to naturally make healthier choices. It’s freeing not having to count so many SmartPoints. When dining out, it's nice not having to worry about how much your chicken or salmon weighs.

Life on WW Freestyle
I was so excited to try it! Everything about it appealed to me. Less tracking, more ZeroPointTM foods (which were foods I loved!), and it’s a healthier more sustainable plan. It has been a game changer for me. Dining out is less stressful. I just order chicken breast or fish. I love that I don’t have to get out my food scale for every morsel of food I eat. It’s also nice to have more ZeroPoint food options when you run out of SmartPoints at the end of the day. My go-to in that situation is 0% fat Greek yogurt with frozen berries and Stevia. My favorite meal is white bean chicken chili. I make a huge batch on Sunday for the week. Plus, I can still have an occasional doughnut or slice of pizza.

Finding support on Connect
I would recommend this program to anyone looking to lose weight in a healthy way. It truly is a lifestyle. I love Connect, a tool on the WW app. That's a great resource for me and a way to connect with other people going through the same thing. Plus, the WW Workshops give me support and accountability.

Socializing on plan
If I’m going to a potluck, I can bring something I know everyone's going to like. If I’m going out, I'm bound to find something I can have without needing to measure and portion. I don’t have to feel like I'm missing out. It is a challenge to lose weight in our culture. It’s such a food culture and most people don’t eat very healthily. Having support and easy-to-use tools are a win all around. There’s really nothing else that compares to it.
