I do!

We’re on week 7. So far it’s been really effective. I’ve slacked at the gym recently, so I think most of my weight loss has just been changing my eating habits (paying attention to serving size, cutting way back on cheese, pasta, and alcohol, and sweets). I was really hungry the first few days because I was always thinking about what I could and couldn’t eat, and yesterday for some reason I was hungry for ALL the food… but otherwise I’m pretty happy with what we’re eating.

the cons are that sometimes the apps (or how they’re designed) are a bit annoying. Plus, my only “feedback” person is Fiance – which works, honestly, but can be a little annoying when he comes home and is like “I have 18 points to use for dinner!” and I’m down at like… 6… because we have different daily amounts.

What I like most about it is that it’s showing me relative value of different food choices.

I lost 65 pounds with WW online back in 09  I could still do with loosing another 10 really, but I am happy where I am TBH.

But I found tracking really easy, and found it really helpful with reciepe suggestions etc.  I am just an ‘online’ bod that it fitted in with my life so easily!  Plus you don’t pay loads of money to go to the meeting to have someone else weight you!

I’m using Weight Watchers online too. I’ve lost 16 pounds since November. It’s easy to use and really holds you accountable. I like how it’s not a fad diet, but an actual lifestyle change. I can’t think of any cons right now. I highly recommend it.

Nope! I use sparkpeople.com

They have just about everything WW has but it’s FREE.

I use myfitnesspal.com to log my progress…It works for me because I tend to be pretty successful if I can track my calories…

I’ve lost almost 40 pounds on WW online. The recipes are the best resource!

Holding steady at 20lbs lost.  Started on October 15th, lost weight really consistently, then got lazy with my tracking and have flatlined.  I’m back on the wagon though, I entered everything today and am going to do whatever it takes to keep going!

I lost 70 lbs. on Weight Watchers about three years ago, and have kept it off. I haven’t lost any weight in the past year or so, but at least I kept off the 70 lbs. I still have 40 or so lbs. to go.

 

Initially I went to the meetings because at that point in my life, I was the heaviest (and most depressed) I’d ever been. I truly needed the support of the weekly meetings, the weigh ins, etc. I also had a fantastic group leader. After nine months or so of doing the meetings, I had lost perhaps 40 lbs. and I dropped out of the meetings and did the program online. I lost another 30 or so pounds with the online program.

So yes, it can be done.

The thing I loved about Weight Watchers is that you can pretty much have whatever you want, within reason. You just can’t eat and eat and eat. It’s all about portion control and budgeting for your cheat days or dinners out. My thing was wine. I love having a glass of wine or a cocktail a few times a week. There were some weeks when I would have my 5 oz. glass of wine every night and I would still lose weight, because I planned for that wine.

I have recently re-joined the online program because now that I’m married and settling in with Darling Husband, I really want to knock off some of these last 40 lbs. I don’t know if I’ll ever make it to goal weight, but if I could just get halfway there it would be a nice start.

The thing I love about the online program is that it is so easy to keep track of your points on the website. You just type it in and the website saves it. I found that most weeks, I went over points by as much as 20-40 points, pretty much the equivalent of one day’s worth of food. And I still lost weight.

If there is one piece of advice I could give to you — and to myself (LOL) — it’s that you HAVE to count points DAILY or the program WILL NOT WORK.

LOL! It is so easy for the points to rack up if you are not keeping track. You can still cheat here or there, but if you don’t keep track it gets out of control really fast.

 The program is actually very easy to follow if you’ve done your planning. The legwork is the part I struggle with — taking the time to plan the menu, grocery shopping for whatever, cooking the special meals, etc. And it is time consuming to sit down to the computer to track points throughout the day.

Good luck!
