    Yes, get back into walking more regularly. The weather's just been too funky for my regular walks, and I'm really missing them!

I have had success with WW. as I can eat regular food. So have a few friends I know.
Any comments on pros/cons on WW's ?

    Bought my food scale when I was attending WW years ago, and it has become my favorite kitchen tool.... but I haven't been back to WW since then...

I love SP!

    I didn't care for the program, but that was years ago with the public meetings, and the bell ringing if you lost a pound, etc. I didn't like having to schlep myself to meetings every week, so I didn't stick with it.

I love Spark People - it's really worked for me thus far.

    The in-person weigh-ins can be helpful. Otherwise, SP allows you to eat anything you want. And gives you tons of resources and community support for free.

    I go to WW also and a big pro for me is one you already stated - you can eat whatever you want; counting points in my opinion is a whole lot easier than counting calories; you can participate in WW and still take advantage of the information and feedback here at SP; the support from others at WW meetings are a plus for me and if I am stuck with something I have the expertise of the meetings leader to help me recognize what I can change to help me get results moving in the directon I want. It is costly but once you reach your goal weight and Lifetime you can attend meetings for free.

I hope you find what works best for you.

    Worked for me in the past using old system. Tried 2 years ago after i had a baby and wasn't as successful. Probably my body wasn't ready yet for all the dieting when I was waking up every 3 hours.

Good luck!

    I tried nutrisystem with my girlfriend. Oh My Stars, it was awful.
I lost massive weight because : 1) The food was inedible. 2) I ran to the bathroom for the 2 weeks I tried it.
It totally messed up my low blood sugar *at the time*
Now I am on a diet for diabetes, which I have to do.
These are the only 2 diets I've been on,

    Yes, I tried one using protein powder for two meals a day. Lost weight then gained it all back as soon as I went back to eating regular meals. I also tried the Atkins diet. Ditto.

    I take the green tea tablets every now and again when I feel I am getting out of control....they work for a minute but I think in the end its up to you. I tried one of his suggestion a while back but I forgot which one but it was supposed to help keep blood pressure in check naturally.... Didn't work so I stopped taking them.

God bless,

    Outside, if possible. But I tend to wimp out if it's both cold AND windy.

    I just bought a treadmill yesterday so I'm hoping it's inside! Because outside in -20 just isn't working for me. :D
