I used to love Weight Watchers. Well, not love it exactly, but found it the perfect program to lose weight on. I was happy with my weight loss; I rocked the Points system. But I gained a bit of weight back; some of it due to junk food, some of it due to meds. I knew it was time to get back on the program.
But they changed it.
Now they have Points Plus. Everything you eat is now higher in Points, but you also get more Points per day than before. And on the old program, you had to count the fruit you ate. Now it's free.
I tried Points Plus for over a month and lost less than four pounds. I gained and lost the same half-pound for the last couple weeks. I followed the plan to the letter, but had no success.
I decided to try Spark People, a free online weight-loss site. I started it this past Monday. I've lost THREE POUNDS since starting it. I realized that the new Points Plus system is giving me too much food and expecting me to lose weight. And after researching online, discovered that a lot of people are very unhappy with this new program, but Weight Watchers isn't really listening.
So if you're having success with the new program, that's great. But if you're frustrated like I was, and having no progress, give Spark People a try.
