    im on line too. my name on WW is wvhill22. My husband and i joined last summer and I lost 30 lbs. we quit last nov and i gained 25 back. so we are now back to the meetings. I have lost five so far. I love the program. one thing I do is mark everything with a permanent marker with how many points it is so I don't have to keep looking it up. Good luck!

    I'm thinking of joining, but wondering if it will really work for me. Is it really easy to use the website? They don't really show a demo of the screens, etc.

    i am confused by the site, but i am just getting into it.
    i believe they have a special going on. $55.00 for 3 months.
    i think they want $12 or $15 to weigh in at the meetings,plus your membership fee.this seemed like the way to go to me.

    i am "strut526" on WW, i started a blog today on there also..

    i will see what we can do, on this board, to follow each other through out, good and bad..cheering section is important to me!

    excellent idea! Grab the big black thick marker!

    I am a lifetime member of weight watchers & faithfully go to my meetings every Monday. The meetings are where I get my motivation.

    You will eventually learn the points plus and NOT have to look everything up.

    I joined about 3 years ago & have kept off about 46 lbs......problem is I want to lose and keep off about 8 more lbs!

    But, WW is the best eating plan.

    Remember, you never graduate from WW, it is a lifetime commitment!

    Some of my classmates and I go out to eat every week after our meeting!

    should have asked me first, I would have told to skip the confusing costly WW site and go straight to a FREE, easy to use, amazing website..

    http://www.sparkpeople.com

    the food tracking can not be beat, the exercise videos and tracking are the best on the internet, the information and even the forums are all FREE..and open 24/7.....

    Give them a try and see what you think!

    I tried sparkpeople a couple of years ago and really liked the food data entry program, but I found the rest of the website confusing -- especially because of the clutter from so many advertisements. If WW is worse than sparkpeople, I don't want to waste my money on it.

    nope. I use a droid app fro my phone called myfitness something or other.
    just punch in your meals and exercise and it does all the work for you.

    Hi Kim! welcome to the WW family. I have been doing the new program online since Dec 30th and I've lost 24 lbs so far...I'm also doing the Leslie Sansone "walk at home" dvds. Its been great. You will build up stamina as you go, take it easy and work your way up... you can do it! I will be challenged on Wed when I leave to spend 2 weeks with my 3 sisters in FL, the wine and dessert loving sisters! However, I'm motivated to see "me" again in the mirror, I have 26 more to go and I'm going to do it! go for it, you'll find lots of support. Message me anytime :-)

    I lost about 35 pounds last year on WW on line. Still a member, but have trouble sticking with it since I retired-hoping to get my momentum back! I'll be your friend!

    I tried that once. I found it confusing. I liked the old points program they had years ago. Good luck to you.

    I go to the meetings and have online as part of the fee. I love the interaction of people and do better that way.

    I did WW for a while, hardly lost anything. But Sparkpeople I find totally inspiring and much easier to follow. Bonus is that if I am diligent about tracking, I lose easily!!

    I am a Lifetime memeber, I follow on line but dont follow the new PointsPlus plan I am still doing the Momentum because I already know most of the points and measurements by heart. All my recipes ETC are in the old plan also. Once you get going it gets easier to follow.
    I found that writing on pkgs with a sharpie worked the best for me when I started, I still do that if I have bought something I dont use often or new to me.
    It works but you really need to keep track and write everything down that you eat.

    I need to get back to tracking again. I am a lifetime member but the pounds have recently started inching up. It would be nice to be able to check in regularly on this site for inspiration. We need to form a group here.
