I mainly joined last week because I thought the meetings & weigh-ins would give me more accountability & in-person support & so far so good! I still love using spark though, especially to track along side my weight watchers points. It will be interesting to see how they coincide.
The only thing I've noticed about WW that I don't like so far is that the message boards are kind of dead & unresponsive compared to Spark boards. I've posted a few messages on there & haven't received any response or feedback.
But, like I said the actual meetings seem awesome. I have only been to one, but I loved it. Women (and a couple men, including my boyfriend's Dad) of all ages & sizes. And they were all fun & lighthearted & really supportive & welcoming. I think doing WW along with still coming on Sparkpeople might actually be the way I lose the weight! For some people Spark might be enough on it's own, but having that deadline of the weigh in at the meeting and knowing there will be people (in-person) to lean on just makes me think that a combo of WW and Spark will be perfect for me.
I finally feel like I've had my a-ha moment. FINALLY.
