28 Jun Weight Watchers and Walk at Home are Walking Together
Cheryl’s Testimony (Certified Walk 15 Instructor)
To put it quite simply…..Weight Watchers has provided me over the past 29 years with food plans (not a diet!) that work for LIFE to allow me to learn and apply healthy eating habits in all situations….no food is forbidden…I have learned how to incorporate all foods into my day. WALK has provided me over the past 20 years with an exercise program that fits into all my days; in any situation. I tried all forms of exercise….lots of things, lots of fads, but nothing I could stick with. I LOVED WALKing! WALK was the perfect match to help keep the weight off and keep me healthy.
The benefits of WALK 15 are many!!!! It helps with weight loss and helps reduce body fat, helps with lowering a persons resting pulse and blood pressure and cholesterol, builds muscle strength, reduces stress, helps you to sleep better, increases metabolism, raises your energy levels, helps to control diabetes, helps with breathing and improves circulation, it’s an anti-aging treatment, helps relieve arthritis and back pain….well, I could go on and on!! I don’t know anyone who has ever done a WALK in any of my classes say that they didn’t feel better when they were done…you can’t help but feel happy!!
The benefits of WEIGHT WATCHERS are many as well!! This is a program with real science behind it! Each year this program has just gotten better and better….just when I would think its at its best…they discover more ways to make it more effective and easy to follow…a program for LIFE….it’s not a diet, it’s a healthy plan that allows you to eat anything and fit it into your day….it’s been so helpful in keeping me accountable for what I eat and ultimately how I feel.
The combination of WALK and WEIGHT WATCHERS has made me healthier than I thought possible…I’ll be turning 71 this summer and I feel wonderful! I’ve got the best food plan and the best exercise program and together they work to keep me healthy. Both plans are just natural…..I eat healthy and I WALK!! I do indulge periodically, because after all this is a LIFE’S JOURNEY and I can’t deprive myself of goodies sometimes….but I like to remind myself of an old WEIGHT WATCHERS saying….”Nothing tastes as good as thin feels”….and that keeps me in control!
I have a pacemaker, I have had knee surgery, I have had back surgery, I have asthma, and I have COPD… but I’m unstoppable……I am healthy, I am strong, mentally and physically! At forty, I felt AWFUL, at 50 I felt AMAZING, at 60 I felt AWESOME, and at 70, well, I feel ASTONISHINGLY AGELESS!!
I plan on continuing as a lifetime member of WEIGHT WATCHERS, always encouraging the meeting room members to keep on working toward their goals and to tell anyone who asks, what a great plan it is! I also plan to continue to be a Master WALK 15 Instructor for as long as the good Lord allows me to ……. I have longevity in my family and it would be really fabulous to be able to lead my classes into my 80’s and beyond…and why not? Sounds like a doable goal!
My journey initially started back in 1969 when I was planning my wedding and was overweight even then…I lost the 90 pounds with another plan, but didn’t keep it off. I gained it all back and when I turned forty, I was 100 pounds overweight. I tried a crazy fad diet, lost 10, then went to WEIGHT WATCHERS and got serious……lost the weight but a few pounds would come back and finally realized when I met Leslie Sansone at a WEIGHT WATCHERS meeting (when I was staff at the time) that her WALK was what I needed to incorporate into my day…..I always wanted to reach the 100 pound weight loss mark but just never could do it…..then this past December preparing to go to Penn State to do the WALK at THON I decided this was the time to get to that final goal of 100 off…..healthy eating, lots of WALK and strength, and the grace of the good Lord, it finally happened!!
Hi there! I messaged you a year ago after losing 60 lbs. I’ve kept strong on following Weight Watchers, walking with Walk at Home, and riding my recumbent bike. I’m now down 126 lbs and at my lowest adult weight ever! I’m 20 lbs from a healthy BMI and have never been happier or felt healthier. Thank you Walk at Home!
I began going to Weight Watchers in August 2017 and have lost 29 pounds. The only exercise I do is the Walk at Home workouts. I alternate between one, two, and three miles depending on how much time I have in the day.
Thank you for your encouragement.
Hi Walk at Home! I just finished doing a 2 mile walk with your DVD. I first discovered your system back in the 90’s at a local library when it was on VHS tape. Fell in love with it and lost weight. Then yo-yo’d with the weight for many years. I keep going back to your system. Lasy year I joined Weight Watchers. It was a gift to me from my son. I’m down 50 lbs and make your workouts a morning routine for me before I even leave the house. Feel so much better and my health is better. Thank you for creating this system!
Dear Walk at home team.
I have lived a sedentary lifestyle until 1/1/16. I joined Weight Watchers and heard about Walk at Home. I have been walking daily on YouTube and recently purchased the Miracle Miles 5 DVD set. I workout at least 5 days a week with outdoor walks as much as the weather will allow. I have lost 63.6 pounds this year and can see the toning in my arms , legs, waist line and my joints feel great. Not bad for a 66 year old woman. I love to walk and this fits right into my lifestyle of Weight Watchers and love of walking.
I have reached my Goal/Lifetime at Weight Watchers. My ONLY activity for the past 2 years have been exercising to the Walk at Home workouts. I use the Miracle Miles dvds 5 days a week. I also walk outdoors before work. This is sustainable for my lifestyle.
I am off all Diabetes meds.
I have gone from a size 24 to a 10 pants. 12 dress.
Leslie – Thank you from the bottom of my (healthy) heart 😘
I just wanted to tell you, I did make it to goal, with the awesome help of all of you at Walk at Home and Weight Watchers!! I’m so grateful I was introduced to you all in the spring of 2016 at my Weight Watcher meeting when we did the 5 minutes of walking before each meeting in March and April that year! I released 103 pounds, thank you thank you thank you!!!
I have lost 60 pounds on Weight Watchers and was looking for a good at home work out 🏋 … absolutely love your walk at home 5 DVD package with extras… you make work outs fun and before I know it down. Find myself adding another mile
I made Weight Watcher Lifetime and lost 79.6lbs.
Thank you for creating these great videos! I have lost 40lbs since May with Weight Watchers and walking. My schedule doesn’t always allow me to go outdoors at a decent hour to take a walk. I am loving having these as a go to option on those days.
