Default Meetings to online

In an attempt to save some money I am thinking about switching to online WW. Have any of you done that? Started in meetings and gone to online? I am wondering what you like and don't like about it. Thanks!

I started online. I like it, love it actually. Except....the site has some issues, especially their mobile app. I use Apple (iPhone, iPad) my husband uses android (phone and tablet) and the issues are the same. On our laptop (Mac) a&f desktop however there are no issues. I do wish it was easier to get answers.

You know what, about two months ago I went back to just online and I love it. It's so much less stressful to me then having to go to the meetings every week and get weighed and judged by others plus I save the money to.

Theoretically I like the idea and I did it for awhile. But for me I find that if don't actually go to meetings at least a couple of times a month then I find it easy to fall off the program and don't do well. However, many people don't have that issue in which case online is fine.

I have considered doing the same but I think I'd end up falling off the wagon, like Koshka said.

I went to meetings for about the first 8 months of my journey and then I switched to online for several reasons: 1) money, 2) meetings became redundant, and 3) meetings just became an obligation, almost a hassle (probably because I was thinking that they were redundant).

I've had the same amount of success as when I was going to meetings now that I'm an online member - I still rely on the iPhone app and all of the tools like the food database, weight tracker, etc.

I do have to say that my husband doing this with me has created a built-in support system, so that may be a factor to consider - do you need support from meetings, or can you get that in your personal life?

Good luck with your decision!
