I still count the old exchanges. I know them like a second language and it's helped me stay at goal for decades now. I still have a ton of cookbooks that give exchanges. I actually lost my weight on the old Plan, which only had two cookbooks, and that Program was so weird it's funny now in retrospect. I found the exchanges in Maintenance, and pretty much the same plan was official WW for a long time.
WW can only support their current version of their program whatever that is. If we know the old programs and work them every day, they WILL work. People's expectations change and WW has to change along with them. Every program WW ever had was wonderful and effective for its time.
And for what it's worth, my decor is kind of stuck in the 80s and 90s, too. But that,also, works for me. Whatever works, and only we can be the judge.
No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.
