The people I kinow, my age, (60's), still do the older weight watchers, where you did count calories, rather than points, and they feel better doing that. I still get the magazine, and enjoy the tips and recipes. But calories is what I count, but not obsessively, been at it so long, and eat mostly the same things, so doesn't matter. My husband is diabetic, so I count his carbs and calories, and he writes it all down, has to show his doctor that info. Calories still count, and diabetics can have veggies and most of them don't count as carbs, anyway, so it's easier to count carbs now than it used to be. Do as you see fit, and remember, you have to keep on doing it, not just till you reach some "goal", because, that's life.

calories ~ I'm kind of obsessed . . . I weigh everything. I even count the calories of gum I chew during the day. What can I say? Calories add up.

I did WW years ago and lost 30 lbs. I think whatever works best for you and your lifestyle is the best choice. These days I prefer to count calories, but I don't have a bad word to say against WW. I think they are good about promoting healthy eating as well as weight loss.

Calories as i don't believe in zero calories

Weight loss is cals in against cals out

I use SP tracker, since I stopped subscribing to WW online.
I still have the calculator, and calculate how many points per day.
It's not completely accurate (because it also adds in fruits and veggies which WW calls zero points) but it gives me a guideline

I am using WeightWatchers right now to track food. I felt I was focusing too much on calories and not enough on healthy stuff. I find it easier to eat more (within reason of course) fruits and vegetables when I only have to track them as 0 points. So far, I am down about 2 pounds. So, it works for me and I was struggling when I was focusing on calories.

I do like SP a lot those as it has a lot of great information available. And I know the calorie thing works for a lot of people.

Do you count calories or do Weight Watchers? Just curious on how many have tried Weight Watchers and have had success?
