Need input! Weight join or not?

Thursday, May 30, 2013

day 3 of doing good!! I have worked out and ate mostly right, 3 days in a row!! I need to get better at my water, and I'm trying!
So a lady from my park wants me to join Weight Watchers with her. i do feel i need some group support, but the cost bothers me, I have alot to pay right now already. Opinions please? I's cheaper to do the monthly pass, but I have all the online support Ineed.

    It's great for some and then others just hate it. I've never done it, but through the years I have thought about it some, but the $ was always the thing that totally stopped me. If you can't afford it, I say, no great loss. You really have all you need right here! And the price is right!! Reach out if you need help! You have a bunch of friends here as well as the SP experts that can and want to help you! (((HUGS)))

    I was on WW Online for about a year. I never went to the face-to-face meetings although they have online forums. It never helped me at all and emptied my wallet. I found that SP was much better and I have made so many great Sparkfriends. The forums here and the groups are so good! I wish you the best in your decision.

    I look at Weight Watchers this way: like the name says it's all about losing weight. Why not focus on getting healthy instead and being as active as possible and the weight will take care of itself as a side effect. "Watching weight" is like driving a car and looking at the oncoming traffic instead of at the road ahead of you, eventually you'll go where you are looking.

    Weight Watchers has never worked for me. Come join our Peppy Party and see if our group support here can help...

    WW is available on line. There are WW teams here....we can support you! Why pay $...but if it's with a friend, maybe it will help.

I used to run a TOPS chapter...seems to me lots of degradation in these groups if you don't do well...

Nice to see you on!

  I am doing WW online right now. I don't go to meetings at all, so I can't comment on them. I really like the program, though. I find it easy to follow, and it's working well for me at the moment. The only thing I really use the WW website for is tracking, though. I don't frequent their message boards or anything. I'm already used to Spark, and I know how to get around this site. I really had no interest in trying to figure out how to use a new one.

If you are already doing well, and are concerned about the cost, I would not join. If you are struggling and/or cost is not an issue, then I'd go for it. When I joined in February, I was really struggling and WW has helped me get back on the right track. I may not stay on it indefinitely, but I'm sticking with it for the time being.
