it was 20 bucks a month and although I lost weight I am totally plateaued for about 6 months now so I am going to try counting calories. I think it has to be about the same as WW because you are taking in less calories in the end. The only thing I liked was the extra points I could use for weekends, etc. Any advice on how to incorporate this in the calories?? Plus the boards and people on here are sooo much nicer and friendly and helpful.
