(While this is a free support group area for those following WW, we aren't allowed to give out formulas or certain copyrighted information about the new program.)
We still can offer plenty of free advice!
I'm going to be blunt, though, in a tough love sort of way.
How much can you lose and maintain on WW? Same that you can on any other plan. A person can lose anywhere from 10 to 1,000 lbs eating less and moving more. The problem here isn't with WW... the problem is how you're using it. Why are you cheating?
Why are you an on again/off again member?
At some point you're going to have to face those questions and answer them to determine what the right food plan is for your life. It could very well be that WW isn't the program for you... or it could be that it IS the right method, but you aren't in the right mindset about what it means to lose weight and maintain permanently.
a diet, but from your own post you're using it like a diet.
If you want to use WW to make a permanent change in your life, then that's amazing! And we can help support you in that, and point you in the right direction.
You have to decide whether you want to change permanently or just go on a diet for a few months. That goes for WW and every other plan out there.
You want to change permanently? Then it means ridding yourself of ideas about perfection, and quitting. Those words no longer exist. You are human, you are not perfect and no one here at 3FC is perfect either, but we're still going forward ESPECIALLY after making mistakes. We're not quitters, either. The only way to get the weight off forever is to keep going forward. Even after a struggle. There is NO other option. If you want the weight off, there is no more "off the diet".
All that being said, every person here at 3FC has it within them to make change. To DO this. To successfully lose weight and keep it off for the rest of our lives! We CAN do this! You CAN do this!
My first suggestion to you is to think about why you went off plan before. Sit down and think about what caused you to quit. When you figure out why you quit, you'll be better prepared to choose a plan that fits your life, and to move forward when you make a mistake in the future.
Best of wishes! It's not easy, but it's possible, and necessary.
