I tired WW also and after 6 months lost 12 lbs but after I stopped I gained it all back and have to start again. Realllly ticked off with myself. I am going to try Southbeach and see if that works. It's hard when I'm not the one who cooks and he loves cheese and grains.
Keeping track is also a pain in the butt, but from what I have been reading some people find it helpful.
I don't think there is a right answer for everyone .... I have to find mine also.
