Default exchange plan

wwgal. I would love to talk to you, but I need the exchange plan! I am on a desparate search to find it! I lost 35 pounds in 1991 on it and find it easier and healthier than the points. If you can help, let me know!

thanks..Monica

Default exchange plan

I don;t have an extra copy but if you like i can post it here. I know how hard it is to find the
old ww material. I have the 96 freedom plan if you would like me to post that.

That would be fantastic if you posted it! I am not sure if it will be the same one that I did in the early 90's, but I will try it if it is comparable!
Thanks!!!!

Default I have some things that may help....

1) I have a 7 day Quick Start Plus Journal I did in Excel (for weeks 1, 2, 3 and 4+)

2) I have a journal that combines EATING BY THE NUMBERS (selections) with POINTS (I have this in Excel and Word).

If anyone wants it just e-mail me:

You can usually find older WW cookbooks (not the materials, mind you) that have the program in the
front of the books at used bookstores, antique shops, and garage sales. Many library associations will have
weekly book sales, and I can always find at least one WW cookbook that has the plan in it.

You may also want to do a search on "food pyramid" and find the USDA's website. This is very
very similar to the exchange program.

Good luck!

Default ww exchange plan

Hi, I just joined today and was pleased to hear of someone else doing the old ww exchange plan. I do not want to go back to ww meetings and I had great success with the exchange plan, I lost 60 pounds in the early 90's with it. I started on it again in October 2000 and have lost 34.5 lbs. so far. I have all of the information they passed out at the meetings. If you still need the info just e-mail me and I will send it to you.

Norma

Default 1990-1991 Exchange Program

I'm looking for one of the original exchange programs from WW. It was a very basic program, but I lost weight on it. It was 1990-1991 program. I'm currently on Winning Points and finding it a struggle. Any information would be great.

Thanks,
Jodie

Blonde,

One of the other members had a great idea that I just tried. Order one of the old cookbooks! I went to www.half.com and ordered two ww cookbooks with the copyright of 1991. They always have the plan in the front of the book! I am doing the points now too, and have lost 4 pounds in the first week, but i truly find the exchange program healthier and easier to follow. Good luck and thanks nc mom for starting the thread. It looks like there are many who feel the way you do.

Regards, Monica
