I joined CK about a month ago with 50 pounds to lose. Being a breast cancer survivor makes it doubly important that I get this weight off soon rather than later. I have been a WW member in the past, and at one time, I lost about 45 pounds with Nutrisystem. This program seems to be more "life" based, and after the first month I am down about 5 pounds. Pretty impressive, since the drs. told me I wouldn't stand much of a shot for losing weight until I finish the medication I have to take for 5 years. I hope to watch the pounds continue to fall off, even if it is very slowly!!
