Weight Watchers

I've a long history with Weight Watchers.

I started WW back in September of 2010 when they still did the original point program (calories, fat, fiber).  I lost 20 lbs in the first 12 weeks and then the program switched to points plus (fat, fiber, carbs, protein); I lost another 20 and became lifetime in August 2011.

I was never able to maintain however, at least not in the 2 lb required for free WW membership; but I did keep within 6 lbs for quite a while.  Over time...the weight came back.

I've joined WW over and over I don't know how many times...but never with any success.  Each new program I thought would give me motivation; but none did.  My mojo has been gone for a long time.

Covid hit and WW went whacky!  Not able to do meetings they went virtual but wanted to charge the same rate.  I went digital but it still didn't work.  For the record, if you read the WW quarterly report meetings minutes, you'll discover that WW's plan has been to go virtual and less in person meetings ever since Mindy became CEO - it's always been the plan and has nothing to do with Covid though they'll use it as the excuse.  That's why now you are seeing a lot of staff being let go and a lot of the meetings are gone never to come back.  Recently some of the virtual meetings have gone away as well.

Don't get me wrong...I believe WW is a good program.  I just sometimes don't think WW is a good company, and although I do understand they are a business first...they still need to listen to their members.

I haven't decided whether or not to rejoin WW at this point but I will start over using the itrackbites app.
