    I did WW back in late 08 and lost nearly 39lbs. I kept the weight off for 2 full years and looked wonderful and felt even better. Then slowly I let bad eating habits one at a time. What I really liked about WW vs other programs is that WW makes you accountable for what you put in your mouth so you choose what you want to eat since you only have so many points. do I want that piece of cake at 13 points or do I want to eat something better and more of it later. It's all up to you. It was hard training myself to eat better but some of those habits have stuck now. It was HARDER keeping the weight off so here I sit again. I went from pushing a size 14 (I'm 5'10") to a size 6/8 in seven months. I'm now back in a 10/12 and no comfortable in my skin. Age for me though has not helped.

    I tried to do WW again last year online but online didn't work for me, I'm the type that needs to be more accountable and I loved the meeting, as lame as they were sometimes because I had to get on that scale there, not at home.

    There, that's my opinion.

    I've been contemplating signing up for it, but haven't quite made the plunge yet. I do get WW magazine on my nook, does that count?

    I was just curious how this is going?

    Are you doing the online version or going in person? I've never been on WW but am curious.

    Lately, I've been eating so much. It's a combo of emotional eating and PMS right now (sorry, guys). I mean, chex mix with buttercream frosting on top...that's what i'm dealing with here!!

    Not great really. WW is not the most effective diet for me but my daughter in law has lost 30 pounds in the last couple of months. In actuality, I just need to start exercising and cut back on the beer. Oh and Arnold and my bedtime ice cream sharing
