My suggestion is to try another meeting. When you pay for your meeting, it entitles you to as many meetings as you want to go to in one week. I've never found a WW leader or group I liked until this time around. I went to a meeting on Tuesday, didn't like the leader, the group was large and impersonal. I decided to go to another meeting on Friday. This was "THE" meeting. It was small, only 8-9 people and the leader was awesome. She put everyone at ease and made it fun. I'm a very shy, quiet person and she even got me to open up and chat during the meeting.
I would say give WW a chance, just with different meetings. Also, you can attend meetings at any location if you have more nearby, so long as you show your book that says you've paid.
And if you like WW, you also have the option to follow it online.
@ KarynLucy, the meetings are not designed to face the psychological problems that caused your weight problems. It is just a support group to share tips and things that people have found that help them or may be interesting to others. If you are looking to tackle the psychological issues, I'd recommend talking to a Psychologist or Psychiatrist because they are the only ones qualified to help in that aspect. At the meeting I went to on Friday, the leader recommended some Weight Loss Hypnosis tapes that tackle the psychological issues that can help you deal with the issues that caused weight problems in the first place, but again, these tapes cannot take the place of a doctor. They only help you to realize the problems and things you can do to change them.
Hope that helps! Good luck!
