Hi guys, so I know there are a small number of us who have officially signed on for Weight Watchers. I have been doing it strictly online and have been following the points program. So far I've lost about 6lbs since i started countin points. It is definitely more lenient than LAWL but you really have to watch your portions.
The online site has a point tracker system. You search for the food you want to enter and then enter the amount and it computes the points. Many brands and restaurants are already listed, making it very easy to know exactly how many points you are eating. If your food is not listed, simply enter in the cals/fat and fiber and it will give you the estimated points.
The format is a lot like fitday.
There is also a section to log your activity points. Many different activities are listed, you enter in the duration of the activity and it computes the points.
You have points on "reserve" every week, you tap in to those points if you happen to go "over" your allocated points in a single day. You may also tap into your activity points if you happen to go over.
There really is no failing.
Let us know if you have questions. I think I paid $60 for 3mos and that includes meetings if I so choose.
This is not an endorsement or ad, but I know that many of you may be looking for a new program, and I'd love to share my knowledge with you so you can make the best decision for you!
