I guess I don't considering programs like weight watchers as a "clinic" as they do at least try to teach healthier lifestyles. When I think of clinic, it's more of the ones you have to go to a medical facility. And some are for drastic situations and I can understand. However, I've also heard some have people consuming like 600 calories a day or less, and those seem questionable to me.

Plus some of the ones where you go away from home might help lose weight short term but if they don't affect the at home life, then it's very likely to return to the old habits and gain the weight back.


What I liked about Weight Watchers is the community aspect. It's like having a forum but in person. Meeting people, listening to pertinent topics about struggles to eat healthy and suggestions to handle different food situations, that was all nice. The fee, however, not easy but broke. But it was nice when I was going.

Unless my doctor recommended it, I would never join a weight loss clinic. I don't trust them.

I know people who have lost weight using them but they don't appeal to me.

I lost the l6 at Weight Watchers but after a year gained it back, but that was years ago. Now, I am only about 5 or 6 lbs. away from what I want.

Depends on what you mean. I haven't gone to a "clinic" but I've tried a couple different programs. I didn't like Jenny Craig cause the food isn't very good and it was still rather limited cause of what I didn't like and trying to find ones that would travel when since I was in college and couldn't take frozen meals to debate tournaments in different states. So, that one didn't work at all for me.

I did pretty well at weight watchers the first time and it does try to teach a new lifestyle. It worked well when I have a meeting place I liked, but over summer I was in a different state and that meeting place I didn't like. So, the local area and who runs the meetings does influence things.

I did years ago and lost l6 lbs. but then I gained it back. I find getting a lifestyle helps me.
