Also, our environment can present all kinds of obstacles to weight loss. Eating whatever you wanted at a restaurant was okay when people ate out only a few times a year, but these days we eat out far more often. Portion sizes are larger. Snacking is more prevalent and, while doing so, we tend to be standing up or have our attention focused on another task. This can lead to thinking the calories don't count, but they do.
Trying to stick to a weight-loss plan on your own can be difficult, but Weight Watchers gives you a structured program that teaches you how to make the right choices to lose weight and keep it off, and gives you the skills to use them in every situation.
