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.

I didn't want to pay for it, but I joined because my husband's insurance would reimburse us the full amount after completing a 12-week program. But after going to one meeting and learing the points system, I quit because I didn't like the set up. I had already gotten used to counting calories, and the points seemed silly to me. They seemed a little arbitrary and difficult to figure out if you didn't eat an entire portion of something. For instance, if I just wanted a few chips, I couldn't figure out how to calculate the points. So, what? Do I eat more chips to get the right point value? Do I just eat the the few chips and ignore the points all together? Do I walk around with that stupid calculator every where I go??
I just didn't like the system.
Oh, and, at the meeting, the group leader was handing out little gold star stickers to the members, and having members giving other members stickers for various accomplishments or realizations or whatever. It all seemed a bit juvenile to me.

935, you bring up a good point. (no pun intended). when i was counting points and measuring things, i definitely would eat more than i needed b/c i "could". sometimes i would measure out half a serving of whatever and assign half the points but i think since i stopped counting pts my serving sizes have gone down.

if your a lifetimer that is not at goal, it cost $14.00 each time you come. you need to come once a month to weigh in. i use the logon PT everyday and add my points up there. i have the knowledge and the support from my group on PT, so why go, and the best part is that it is free.

I quit because

I quit WW because I thought it was too expensive and I also was sooo hungry on their program. I also never quite found the support I was looking for. Meetings are nice, but I've 'talked' here at PT then I ever did with anyone at WW. When I quit WW, I decided to make my own plan: EAT LESS, MOVE MORE. I made myself move 15 minutes a day to start with. It worked. Five years later, I'm still eating less and moving more.

Why I did...

I have been in weight watchers for several years. The new system is very different and seems to emphasize high protein (meat) eating. I am a semi-vegetarian. When we were getting the new information it showed the difference between what you could eat. One was a pic of a croissant (on the bad) and, of all things, a slab of ham, a runny egg and 1/2 a piece of toast and butter (on the 'i get to eat this') side. It grossed me out.
Also, I work 60+ hours a day and I don't have time to learn a new system. I know very well what the points values are for items in the old system are. I don't want to change. It was healthy, high in fiber and low in fat. (My family has a Hx of colon cancer) And it was vegetarian friendly.
I just simply don't have time to figure out a new system. I can't go to too many meetings and i don't want to pay for something I dont want to use.

If you have reasons I can continue to use weight watchers on my schedule, please let me know. I can't go to meetings too often and don't have time to learn new things.....

Thanks,
Kinda annoyed.

interesting feedback. Different people seem to be coming to very different conclusions about the new Points Plus. Protein does appear to be front and center- at least from the materials that the company itself publishes.

quit weight watchers

I gained weight on WW. I decided to follow the program exactly as instructed. I gained two pounds my first week and two pounds my second week. Also, I couldn't stand waiting in line a half hour to get weighed, and then to have to endure the "counseling" from the person at the scale about why I could have gained weight. No thank you, I'll spend my money elsewhere. This site has given me more success and hope than WW.

I've joined WW 7 or 8 times in the past 31 years, since I was 13 years old. For me, this diet mentality (going on *any* diet, that is) eventually led to my having Binge Eating Disorder. I joined for the last time about 2 years ago, went for a month, then swore I would never again go on a diet again.

The search engine optimisation benefits of the.gov and.edu backlinks are quite a bit more than any other domain. That is why they are a bit exclusive in nature.
