I am a 43-year-old woman and have been trying to lose weight through the Weight Watchers program. I am following the diet closely and exercise daily. I have been on the program 10 weeks and lost 9 lbs. I feel that I should be losing more. Advice?

I think you are doing a great job.

A safe, effective weight loss should be one to two pounds a week. Have you noticed a change in your clothes? You may be losing inches. The important thing is, you are making lifestyle and behavior changes. It's not just about losing weight. It's about making healthier choices and being physically active to improve your health.
