Why did you quit Weight Watchers?

I'm curious to know how many of you have tried weight watchers and why did you quit it if you did?

I have been doing it for over a year. I hit my goal so now it's free as long as I stay under my goal weight! That's motivating for me!

3 times out of 4, I quit WW because I hit a plateau that lasted more than 3 weeks. The fourth time was because of family trauma followed quickly by 9/11 (I'm in NYC) ... lost my ability to focus for a long time.

To me $10 per month isn't too much to pay if it works, which it did for my sister! And if you stick with it, which she did!

the first time i stopped going, i didn't really "quit" but took a hiatus b/c my life got busy. i eventually went back and then decided to quit when my weight stabilized after a few months. i was glad i wasn't gaining, but i was slightly (like 5 lbs) above the highest recommended weight for my height. i felt shame and pressure each week to lower that number on the scale. (never mind that my fitness levels had been rising, etc). i guess to answer your question, i stopped b/c it was not emotionally helping me in my lifestyle change.

I was paying 11 bucks a week so it did get a bit expensive so now I just do it on my own.

We're quitting after our Monthly Pass expires. For my husband and me, it's $80 per month, which is money we feel will be better directed toward our gym membership. We've got all the program materials, and once you know it, you know it.
