I was on it after my daughter was born, and it worked! To make things easier, I would calculate point values and write them on the packages so I was fully aware of what I was putting in my mouth.

I was on it before and dropped 20 pounds. I’m on it again and I know I’ll lose.

it calculates points based on a number of things.

Tip #1: have 0 point and low point snacks handy, load up your plate with 0 point foods and don’t use your weekly points unless you absolutely need to.

I can truthfully say that it only works if you actually stick to it 😉

I’m guessing the plan is probably the same worldwide, but in the UK points are biased so that foods high in sugar or fats have more points, whereas protein is lower or even free; it’s not as simple as more calories = more points. There are a lot of 0 point foods though so like a PP said you can stock up on those.

We can choose between No Count and tracking; No Count basically means you stick within a (fairly broad) range of foods and don’t bother looking at the points, but it doesn’t mean eat as much as you like. Personally I have the best successes when I’m tracking and I’d recommend starting with that to get used to it.

I don’t know if you have ‘flex’ where you can carry points over, but I haven’t gotten to grips with that yet. If we’re eating out and I’m struggling to point the meal, I’ll just write off all my weekly points (and that days) in one go, then stick to my daily points/zero points foods after that.

I’m nearing in on 100 pounds lost (in about 1.5 years).  I’m adjusting to the new flex program and digging more into my weeklies than I did previously – but I love the option of so many free foods!  I can vouch for it working, if you’re honest in your tracking.  The best part, in my opinion, is being able to eat the chocolate cake if I want the chocolate cake!  I just need to track and reset my plan for the rest of the week.  Good luck!

winewithwedding :  So what you could do is work out say 6 points worth of goldfish crackers, and have those set aside to nibble on. You just need to know that you a) have 6 points ‘spare’ and b) won’t go for an extra cracker!

I’ve been on it since January and am down almost 30 pounds.

You will have more success of you focus on eating 0 point foods, and staying in your blue dot range.

I’ve been on it since January and I’m down almost 20lbs. 

It works but it took me some time to really get a handle on how the points worked.

I’m just restarting today! Following 🙂

Wondering if anyone would like to do an ongoing support thread?

I second that it really works. I lost 40 lbs back in 2011 and have kept it off which for me was the bigger feat. Portion size was a huge issue. I recommend measuring your rice, potatoes, cereal, creamer, olive oil – these are all easy to “eye ball” and get so incredibly wrong. I find now that I mostly eat whatever I want but my snacks still revolve mostly around fruits and vegetables.  I would always save my flex points for the weekend to be able to really enjoy a nice meal when going out and that helped not feeling deprived. Do you cook? I love skinny taste and she calculates all the WW points. It was a godsend and I still use it frequently. Good luck!
