the cost varies by location. I bought the "monthly pass" which is $xx.xx each month and is cheaper than paying weekly. I also have free access to the website and their online tools.

If you think you are preggo, I wouldn't sign up. If you want to lose a few pounds BEFORE getting preggo, then, by all means, sign up!! But, the moment they find out you are preggo, they ask you to stop coming... that's what happened to me.

Re: April WW! Stop dieting start living!

I really want to lose weight but I keep thinking I wont have the time nor energy to count points and what not and then also comes the cost...the cost of meetings the cost of the starter kit, etc.

I really need someone to talk some sense into me, I really want to lose weight for ME!!!!

Re: April WW! Stop dieting start living!

You can do this with NO COST.... I used the formula I posted above to figure out my points... and www.3fatchicks.com and an online WW points calculator to figure out my food points....

I am doing this for me, and the energy I gain from feeding my body well and feeling good about how I look is well worth figuring out how many points each meal is!

Just start, you have nothing to gain and everything to lose!

Re: April WW! Stop dieting start living!

I am not doing any meetings or online either. I bought a points book and a points 'slider', and then use this thread as my 'meetings'. Otherwise I do it for myself.

I think it's interesting that pretty much everyone who has paid for subscriptions no longer frequents this thread. The two people left from the "new year resolutions" are ones that don't have the outside support!

...
There are tons of online resources. Mrsallen mentioned 3fatchicks, but if you google online points calculator you can get counters for free all over. Just take the food label and plug it in there, write your points down and you have it for free.

I think so too! My weigh in day is Thursday, and the first thing I think is "I need to weigh and post on DS"

Week 15

Last Weeks Weight: 190.4
This Weeks Weight: 192.2

Total Loss to Date: -26.2
10%: 196 (0.0! pounds remaining)

Started a new med this week... not sure if it's contributing to the gain or not, but I'll check all points this week and keep chugging along!

Was probably the medication. Even if it doesn't make you gain weight always, it can mess your system enough that your body needs to take a week to equalize.

I weighed in this morning (tomorrow is my usual day ) and I lost my good ole' half a pound! Maybe I can kick it in gear today and lose a bit more. At least get to the whole pound!
