If you follow it, but it can get expensive :o( … Don’t you HATE that they make such an extrodinary amount of money off other people’s pitfalls.  Sheesh, just irks me!

HI ::waves:: you have no idea who i am, but i found you through Jen (Lusiousness.org). Anywho, i think the new “point system” weight watchers has does work, but you don’t need to invest in the program if you have a scale and will power :-) I have the books and all the points and everything if you need help or want more info feel free to contact me :-)  Peace, Amanda

There’s been a diet trial here in the UK (that’s being screened on TV at the moment) and so far it seems Weight Watchers has been the most sucessful diet for women. The most successful diet overall has been Atkins, but that looks so unappealing to me it’s untrue. Here’s the link for the series, you might find it useful, who knows:

I agree with the person who said it the point system works and that you can do it on your own. The great thing is, if you have all the info, the point system is not all that hard to follow. Especially if you like vegetables! (The majority of them have absolutely no point value!)
My mom did WW for a while, and she was doing great. The only thing you really need the actual group for is support, but if you know enough people (real life or online) you can make your own support group and save all kinds of money!

Weight Watchers works, but you have to remain dedicated to your diet. I lost 30 pounds, but I’m in a pleateau stage right now where I’m ‘stuck’, but with dieting you have to expect that.
