WW on-line vs. WW in-person

I am considering joining weight watchers so I can have a better structure for myself and meal choices. Maybe you can help we weigh pros and cons in going on-line for support vs. meetings in person??

I have two young girls: 6 and 3 who keep me pretty busy so I'm leaning more towards the on-line support.

Can't wait to hear the results! THANKS FOR RESPONDING

I think it is great that your jioning WW. I found going to the meetings very encouraging I think it is the 1 thing I do just for me! Good Luck. You could try online and see how it works for you

I orderd the At Home kit and it works because I dont have a set schedule... I also like that I can use PT as my meetings and weigh in, rather than paying for the WW online tools... but good luck either way! And congrats for making the first step!

I might go to a meeting sometime in the future but right now, I do it here in my team. Must be working cause I've lost 8 pounds so far! But if it stops I'll reevaluate.

Meetings worked. logging didn't

but PT is a lot like meeitngs to me, so now that I know the deal - coming *here* works well for me.

At least it's kept me somewhat in check during the time of year when I'm most likely to gain 8 pounds. I only gained 3.

Going to a meeing is so much better.. I would also shop around for the right leader. It makes a differnce. Maybe you could do both, say attend meetings once a month. You can do that now. Good luck!

we are finding that some PEERtrainer members are using our new eating system alongside WW. We highly recommend fusing different diets together. You just might find that you'll have an easier time staying on your points plus.

The plan is free to download:
