Joined WW online today

Friday, July 09, 2010

so today I rejoined WW online. I have used this in the past, and found it to be very helpful. I actually lost 50 lbs back in 2001, and kept it off for quite awhile. It wasn't until nursing school that I put the weight back on.

I wanted to stay with free websites, like this one, but I think the online diary at WW is easier, and keeps things simple for me. I however, really like the other features SP has, so plan on using this site for my motivation.

I feel torn between paying money and doing this myself "free" . I buy food, I buy junk, so why not pay for something that could be really useful as a tool? I'm sure that if I were to brown bag it a bit more, and cut out a few other non-essential purchases, I can easily pay for my subscription. I hate going to WW meetings though - some people love them, but I felt like I was having a lot of merchandise thrown at me and pushes to buy their snacky items. I really want to emphasize the real food.

People have to buy prescription medications every month for their health, I think I need to look at a WW online subscription as a prescription for my health, and use it as the tool I need to help me keep track of my food and my exercise.

    Remember you always have to do what is best for you. What you think you need to be successful!
    I love SP but find WW counting much eaiser for my neurotic personality.

    I use both SP & WW. I prefer the points method for tracking my food, however nothing can beat the support I find here.

    Good luck with your journey, I too was debating on weight watchers online but since I have been active on this site I just love it.
