I think WW is great. I use it online, have never been to a meeting. It teaches you how to eat really. Portion size is important and making the right choices... getting used to the points system take a little getting used to, but after a while you remember what's what. If you stick to it, it works. Last year I started in January and lost 14 pounds by mid February. Sadly, once Easter hit I started eating like a pig again and, sigh, am back on WW now. What's nice about it is that you eat real food, it teaches you to cook differently, what to order when going out to eat, etc. There's even recipe builders, so you can enter the ingredients of a fav recipe and get the points value. You can eat pizza, chinese food, whatever, as long as you make the right choices (ie, chicken and broccoli not sesame chicken, etc.) control your portions and bank up extra points. I have really had no bad experience with WW at all. GL!
