Welcome PRESCOTTM! We all follow different WW plans here, as well as SP, which is where I track now.
We provide POSITIVE support here. It is this Team that helped me reach my goal, and it is this Team that boosts me when I'm down.

Maintenance, as it turns out, is a life-long journey.

WW blew it with the unlimited fruit thing, and that's when I turned here. Fact is, fat cannot be burned in the presence of insulin, and constantly eating fruit throughout the day would mean insulin was always present!! It's a wonder anybody shed any pounds on PP+!
Oh, well.

You must be a busy mommy, but, please post often. We're here for you.

When you arise in the morning,

give thanks for the morning light, for your life and strength.

Give thanks for your food and the joy of living.

If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies in yourself.

Hi all,

I hope I'm posting to the right thread! I recently had a baby, and I'm wanting to lose my baby weight and the weight I gained on fertility treatments by using the old Weight Watchers plan. I used this program with great success after my last baby....only to be completely blindsided when WW changed to points plus and all my hard work started to go out the window. Unlimited fruit just doesn't work for me to lose weight! I eventually quit the online program I'd had so much success with because I felt like with Points Plus I was paying to GAIN weight lol :)

This time round, I'm looking to get some support to lose this weight using the old plan and to stick to it. Weekly weighins and such, as well as looking to discuss ups and downs of weightloss with others. I'm a breastfeeding mommy, so my points are adjusted for that. I hope that I once again lose weight.

It's great to meet you all...and I hope to connect with you all more as time goes on :)

Welcome Devan! Come on over to the first "sticky topic"; that's where we usually hang out (although you can see that we don't seem to post much on the weekends) Glad to have you as part of the team and congrats! on the new baby

Hi all! My name is Devan and I've done the old ww points and pp, but currently I'm doing the simply filling technique. I'm looking for new ideas and good support:-). I had a baby in May and although I'm now 15 lbs below my pre pregnancy weight, I need to lose 20 more lbs to be considered in my normal weight range and I want to set a good example for Brody and be around for as long as possible.

BLUE!! WELCOME!! Come on over and Post!
I, too, was introduced to WW using the 1-2-3 Plan, and that was simple and worked just fine.
I wasn't happy with the support OR THE PP+ and found SparkPeople-----THANK MY LUCKY STARS!!

This Team was formed basically because many of us weren't satisfied with PP+. Those of us who have a problem with over eating (Me!) didn't do well with "unlimited fruit," and it just deteriorated from there. I found no support on the message boards.

It was this Team that helped me reach my goal, and it is here I'll stay while on my weight-maintenance path.

Tell us a little about yourself and chime in from time to time, okay?

When you arise in the morning,

give thanks for the morning light, for your life and strength.

Give thanks for your food and the joy of living.

If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies in yourself.

OK!
I'm jumping in! Lost weight with the 123 plan and can't seem to get results with PP Plan. If it aint broke, dont fix it!!

I was always afaid to post on the WW community boards. Some of them got pretty uppity and the boards ALWAYS felt cliquey.

Today is Day 1 for me. The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.

I agree, jump in with both feet. This team helps keep me on track, or helps me get back on track when I derail.

This Team is all about support. It is here you can crow about your successes and moan and groan about your setbacks. There is a remarkable camaraderie here.

We are NOT a clique, even though it might appear that we are having private conversations. Post. This Team has helped me stay on track and reach my goal. It is my safe harbor. I think twice (most times emoticon ) about veering off plan when I know I will be held accountable by my Team, in a loving way, of course.

When you arise in the morning,

give thanks for the morning light, for your life and strength.

Give thanks for your food and the joy of living.

If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies in yourself.
