I've been doing WW on my own, and I've lost about 40lbs so far.
I use the application "Ultimate Weight Waters Diary" on my phone, and I really like it. My neighbor (who goes to WW meetings) checked my app and said that it's almost identical to the WW app, only she liked mine better.
I also use an app called "Restaurants and Weight Watchers" which not only gives the Points and PointsPlus for most items at MANY popular restaurants across the country, but it also gives calories/fat/other nutritional information.
I know that meetings are best for information and support, but I also google "Weight Watchers Point Plus" and read websites, and lurk on message boards to learn information that might be helpful for me to know.
O! I forgot to mention! I was talking to my neighbor about the "divide the calories by 40 and round up" method of estimating points that we were talking about here www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messagebo
, and she said that a friend of hers uses that all the time. He uses an online WWPP calculator to find his daily points (plus he has his 49 weekly points, of course), then divides the calories in whatever he eats by 40 and rounds up to find his points and logs it that way.
Now that's not the "right" way to do it, and there are issues with doing it that way, but she said that he was pretty happy with it right now, so live and let live, I guess.
Work whatever works!
