  • Loved it, but, as a single poorly paid mom, I couldn't afford the monthly $40. I did it for about 3 months and lost 15lbs even with cheating.

  • I love weight watchers. I've never been to a meeting, I do it online. I love 14.5 pounds since January 4th. I want to lose another 10.

  • i haven't done it, but i have watched many people transform their lives forever with the help of weight watchers. i know the man that created the point system for them :)
    i love how the point system says that veggies raw and lightly steamed are "free foods" you can eat as much as you like!
    the groups can discuss exercise too, not sure if all do.
    good luck with your weight loss endeavors!!!!

  • I think it is a great program if you can afford it. I found it to be very supportive, wish there was a group closer to where I work now that fit with my schedule.

  • I love Weight Watchers. It's the only thing that has ever worked for me. I bought the "at home" program in 2003 when my oldest son was 8 months old. I lost 45 pounds pretty fast, around 5 months. I've never been to a meeting.
