Is anybody doing weightwatchers online? If so would you recommend it?
I tried it once and I was just not strong willed enough! I have just returned and go to be weighed and do listen in on the talks; I hope I can get to goal again in the not too distant future and will then just go and be weighed. The only way it works for me is to write everything down that I eat and when I hit the 29 Pro points (still getting my head round this new idea) I stop eating!
I have to pay up and turn up for it to work. I could exercise at home for nothing but I don't. I have to pay and go a gym. It's whatever suits you. I could do without toiling out to a meeting just when I'm in the middle of getting the dinner out but if i don't have the pressure of having to have lost something at the weigh-in, I'd probably cheat. Cheat myself, the most pathetic kind of cheating .
I do find the online tracker and stuff very useful though.
I wouldn't do it solely on line but I'm still going to the club to get weighed. I usually diet on my own but it's serious this time...son's wedding in the summer.
I've had a look at the forums but they seem even madder than on here.
Like lily I find the online calculator pretty useful.
...and I'm finding the pro-points are working for me.
Thanks, I decided to join it because I thought I could be putting it off forever so why not! Some of the pro-points are strange- 1 cracker is one point yet 3 crackers are 2 points, I suppose I'll trust them for now!! Havent even looked at the forums
