I like WW's but found that online works better for me. I hate that structured feeling. But every so often I buy a monthly pass and get it out of my system.. I just bought the pedometer, hope that helps.

they also have a new gadget called Active Link you might look into

I too am struggling to find a way/healthy path to weight loss. I go back and forth like a tennis ball @ Wimbledon.

In theory, I really like the Weight Watchers program: the support, the meetings.

In practice: not so much.

I always find an excuse to not go to meetings and dread getting on the scale.

I always have a billion excuses:

I can use the money for something else. Why do I have to pay for this??

I don't like feeling restricted (Logically, I know WW doesn't restrict how you use your points, but I have that "diet mentality" and my brain just won't embrace the everything in moderation mentality)

I like to go on Saturday mornings, but every Saturday, SOMETHING always comes up and I just don't go. I act like a child about it-in my head my inner brat is stomping her feet saying I don't wanna go!!!

Then I keep thinking about AFTER I lose the weight: do I count points forever?? (again, logically, I know I should take one step at a time, but that EPIC FAIL part of my brain just keeps manufacturing excuse after excuse)

I keep thinking do I really want to try WW again? Did I ever really give it a fair shot? The longest I went to meetings was 3 weeks. I never really kept track of the daily points or any of the other checklists. I somehow registered a weight loss by half-a**ing it. Should I even go back and face the people at the center again? Maybe I should just give up all together.

I REALLY want to make it work, but there is always something stopping me.

Anyone else on the team struggling? Anyone have any advice which path to follow/how to get some motivation????

Thanks!!!
Trish

I love the weekly WW meetings myself. I like the face to face, too. I just wish I started way before I did. But, so glad that I have. I started on August 4th, 2011 and have released 15 pounds. I am happy with my progress. Good luck with your decision.

I have kicked it around, but being Lifetime, I do get free weigh-in when I am within 2 pounds of goal. What I like most about WW is real face to face with people. I don't get that with SP.

I have a monthly pass for WW and go to a Tuesday evening class. While I enjoy the leader I am not making much progress in weight loss only 5 pounds in 3 months. I do attend live meetings on SP every Monday with Lauren whom I feel more connected to. I'm thinking of giving up my WW monthly pass and using the money to upgrade my gym membership to unlimited spin classes which I enjoy a whole lot. I am also more successful in weight loss if I do cardio daily.
Has anyone else given up WW and used SP as their support group? How has that worked out for you. I have another week or 2 to make up my mind.
Thanks for your feedback.
