Who's doing weight watchers

Postby Moomoo » Fri Jan 25, 2008 6:10 pm

I'm just curious to see who/how many people are doing weight watchers.
I read a lot of posts about calorie counting and "shake" diets but not many about WW

just watch the WW foods, there are usually cheaper and lower fat ones out there!! I always check and have found that alot of the WW foods aren't actually the best stuff available! (edited oops)

I too am doing WW but not attending meetings just following the points plan.

The WW food is interesting - I have the calculator for working out points and some of the non WW foods are cheaper on both points and money.

Cheers

i know what you guys are saying about the food..but im not really educated on healthy eating, exercise etc..so for the first couple of weeks, it is handy for me to look on the shelf and and see the weight watchers food and make a healthy choice. Im learning things as I go, and getting some really great recipes and stuff together.

i'm not doing WW but thought this might be good for you guys - it's a website with a list of recipes with the points for most of teh recipes - some that people have made and worked points out for, others for actual WW recipes :) its http://www.angelfire.com/journal/wwrecipes/
there's all different types of meals (sweets too!) and it's pretty good, check it out :)

You can actually work out the points using a formula in Excel!
The formula can be found on Wikipedia and you just put it as in into excel
I set one up because I lost my points calculator.

I find that the time that the WW products are good are at snacktime. I just know how many points they are and that I can have them and still feel like I am not missing out.

I'm glad there are lots of people doing WW! especially people doing it without meetings...like me!

I love weight watchers (No I don't work for them!) I like it because I can still have what I want (within reason) e.g. Chocolate or lollies
I keep a spreadsheet of foods I eat /buy often so I can look them up quickly. I also have the ww points formula in the spreadsheet to so if I get stuck I can still work them out.

Yay to all the WW followers! :D

You get all the books etc.
