The first time I joined there was a great group and leader.. One meeting a month will be dedicated to taking control of a particular space, as it applies to the routine of the month, so it all feeds into itself. This side effect may stop once your body adjusts to the new dose. Taking that away took importance I was giving my food away, too. I have always struggled with my weight. If u get nausea after taking it, could u ask your doctor about u dosing it at night so u sleep thru the things like headache and nausea? I'm not a model but I enjoy looking like one.

How can I be helped doing the online version. I have joined WW severall times and the last 2 times I did lose a pound but never could get pass that, I would lose then gain it back. I am a bit reluctant to join again, I do not want to waste the money again. Can you give me some pointers on making this work for me.

I need to lose 20 pounds. Hi Marietta — Sorry you have been struggling so much with WW lately! I know the meetings make a huge difference for people, so one idea could be to try out different meetings until you find a group and a leader that you like. Also, planning is a huge piece for me, so taking some time on the weekends to plan for the week can set you up for success.

Men have it easier when it comes to weight loss! I know i need to get moving but Do you think the WW online tools would help with this nasty menopausal weight? I do think the e-tools are a great option, especially since they are cheaper than the meetings or the online program.

Hi beth I really want to lose weight but im not sure what program to choose I really prefer the online version because I have a baby and its hard for me to attend the meetings and my car is down right now. I need help and fast I also have a gym membership to work out so I just want to know if the online version is good and do it works.

I have been successful on WW. I made my goal years ago and have kept it off with the exception of 5 lbs. I would very much like to purchase the books that have the new point values. Is there anyway I can do that without formally joining? Several years ago, I did great with the original points system. I prefer online to meetings, any pointers?

I am twenty-seven years old and started weight watchers on March 26th I find that I struggle with planning and staying away from foods that I crave. Yesterday I wanted a McDonalds burger and fries. I was allowed 17 points at 5 p. I had a lot of zero or 1 point snacks throughout the day and so I ate 20 points for dinner and had my McDonalds.

I also have been a past member of Weight Watchers.. The first time I joined there was a great group and leader.. I reached my goal and kept it off for quite awhile but eventually it all came back plus…So I joined again, the group was very large and there was one member that talked the whole time and talked with leader after words also..

The seconds meeting I wanted to talk to the leader. The leader should not have allowed that either.. Need less to say I need to lose some weight but do not want to,pay to listen to one person take over the whole class…Thinking about online.. Congrats on your accomplishments!

I just had a quick question. I just signed up for WW online yesterday so today is my 2nd day. Thanks for your help, any tips would be appreciated! Congrats on your achievements! I just joined WW online yesterday so today is my second day. However, I love French fries and chocolates. This is it the old WW like the Duchess of York.. I was eating donuts, ice cream and chips as it was in my point range.

Before I knew it I ate my way up to 20 more pounds on weight watchers. Hurt my back, had surgery and steroids and gained another 5. However, started as my niece lost 40 pounds since January I finally, joined and lost 7 pounds since May 6th to May 26th.. The points are 26 and that is a lot. Happy meal 17 for lunch ad my baked skinless chicken breast with vegetables and salad 8 and jolly time pop corn for a snack or weightwatcher skinny cow.

Now without a 23 point limit and learning about healthy and clean eating in my space of life it works hands down. After this last month I am really happy that I can lose 25 pounds without gaining by October my 61st birthday. The program is so great I need that space, spot or seat in that room to be part of an all new breakthrough in weight loss.

The men and women.. Presentations and preparations is so important as weight watchers ceo.. It is whatever suits you and sometimes, we can go it alone, or need some encouragement, hear from different perpectives, walking groups form, and most of all the dynamics of the facilitator.

Each day is a struggle even more so now when you go to the mall for a summer outfit and everyone under pounds gets to slip into the newest trend.

Sorry, I am happy I am almost 61, however, I feel bad for this generation of teens, young parents and working people who are never going to get into a 0 or an 8. New Insurance programs in our country will change and relationships with our physicians will be dissolved. You and me have to be our own advocates and help our aging parents or a life changing event like a bad doctor report. I, am actually using the new weight watchers as a guide to stay healthy and fit as I age.

Do not drop out or give up.. Along the lines of taking a snack when you go out, one thing that has helped me tremendously is to make a snack bag to take to work.

I make homemade protein-granola bars, and take one of those with either an apple or banana, sometimes some grapes, and baby carrots, celery sticks or bell pepper slices with me in a baggie, and I just graze whenever I get 30 seconds.

It saves me thousands of calories a week, and since we only get a discount, not free food, it saves money too!! I lost 44 pounds on WW and needed a boost to help with the last 20 or so. The holidays set me back by 10 pounds and I did my research and decided to try the Lady Soma Detox. I am pleased to say that after taking 3 per day for 4 days I have already lost 7 pounds.

Lady Soma def makes the lbs come off. No jitters and no side effects that I can tell as of yet. I just started WW and I am a week in. I havent seen any weight loss and I am getting worried that I am missing something. I have stayed within my daily points plus every day so far. I have been doing workouts 3 times a week, what am I missing? I record everything I eat and drink. I use fruit or veg with every meal and I dring 8 — 10 glasses of water everyday. That is the idea, yes. But every person has a unique formula that they have to achieve that you will discover over adjusting to the program.

Points Plus — Weight Watchers And here's a good description of the program: I log my food, my exercise, […]. The blog is a girl named Beth, not me. Although she's a huge success story, so maybe I […]. Beth January 23, at Sara January 23, at 9: Lisa April 29, at 5: Amy January 23, at The company expanded as members of the groups who had successfully completed the program began to open franchises throughout the U. In an exercise plan was added to the Food Plan, making Weight Watchers one of the first organizations to stress the importance of regular, moderate exercise in addition to dieting.

In the company was sold to H. A systematic review found that, after 1 year, those who used Weight Watchers lost 2. In , the company announced a major change to their Smartpoint system with Flexpoints, a low carb eating plan that allows members unlimited amounts of more than foods. Today Weight Watchers operates in 30 countries worldwide.

The core philosophy behind the company is a science-driven approach to help participants lose weight by forming healthy habits, eating better, and getting exercise, all with the support of other members. What is the phone number for Weight Watchers? The phone number for Weight Watchers is Who founded Weight Watchers? Weight Watchers was founded by Jean Nidetch in September A few weeks ago I went to get weighed in..

They said I was not active. Okay, I went home and realized I need a different credit card. Well, I checked with my credit card. Then, I tried again. Another clerk realized it something to do with how the Post Office recognizes my billing address.

Today, the same thing. I come home and all over again. I do not want this to keep happening. Do you realized how humiliating it is for other people to hear that or the person checking me in. I came home and the same thing almost happened again. The problem is on your end. Oh, it was in Forest Hills. I am not using a smart phone and I also hear you are not sending out the passes.

Well, how do I check in? Printer is having issues. One more note to my recent note. If we could print out these notes each month, knowing that they would disappear within a finite amount of time, that would keep the data amount down.

This way we have an instant journal. This note goes with my suggestion for tracking our rating of the day with a short note attached and being able to see a month of at a time, of the daily food log under the blue dot days section. Rate your Day kinda thing. With a line for why your Day was….. Good day sorta good day Bad day.

I even thought of using the recipe builder area to do this now. I was member lifetime maintance with Weight Watcher since November I cannot find my membership card. I hope you can help me. It was in Baltimore, Md.

I am looking forward hearing from you. I have been a life member for some time. I had not attended meeting but had maintained my ideal weight for some time. As an incentive I started back as an incentive to help my husband to lose weight, as instructed by his doctor.

We attend meeting in North Fort Myers with Terry. After a week I was told I did not have to pay a fee, which I did upon my return.

I was told to call WW and arrange for reimbursement. I called and in the process the women I talked to not only cancelled my payment but apparently deleted my complete account.

I tried to log in on my phone to register my points the next day and could not get into my account. I called and was repeatedly told to call back in ten minutes. When I did get through to speak to someone I was informed I did not have an account and there was no record of me ever having an account. To say I was and am upset is an understatement.

I am so unhappy about this Freestyle Plan! I wish the app would allow me to choose between Freestyle and Smartpoints! I feel like in order to save as many points as I can for my proteins I have to rely on fat free or sugar free chemical-laden dairy to stay within range.

I have been a life member for about 2 years. It did help me lose weight. You now have a spokesperson, has gotten politically involved and has made racist comments. I cannot be a part of WW political agenda.

Why has WW discontinued the smartpoints plan? Why did they not give people the choice to choose between smartpoints and freestyle. Freestyle is not working for me. I always feel hungry. I doubt I can continue on this plan. Please offer people either or and let us all choose which one we like better like you did with the core plan and flex plan.

Not wanting to agree to a blank document I am now unable to log into the site. I am concerned about my friend, Francine Augello, who lives next door. We joined WW last August together, Brandon, Florida location, and we have come far in our weight loss.

When our memberships expired in December, we thought we could do it on our own, but we both gained weight back pretty quickly. Today, after a lengthy phone call, my account was straightened out, and I was also awarded my two free months. She was told the process takes 6 to 8 weeks, and she must be a current member at the time the promotion benefit was processed.

Either way, Fran is cheated and WW benefits. This is clearly bad faith, written into the language of the promotional application. I can imagine that the thousands, maybe millions of WW members who trusted WW and worked hard to lose ten pounds in the allotted time will also end up in this predicament, benefitting WW into what could be millions of dollars.

About a month ago, I bought 2 of the Slow Roasted Turkey with classic pan gravy and garlic-herb mashed potatoes as I have purchased over many, many years.

I thought that I had just gotten hold of a bad batch that had maybe been thawed and re-frozen. I am sitting here with another 2 boxes that I purchased the other day and kept frozen, and they are the same….. I cooked them for 8 mins trying to get them cooked to some recognizable consistancy. This is enough to cause me to stop buying your product altogether.

I have been a weight watcher member for three years. Somehow my phone number is on the local website for weight watchers international. I never gave authorization for this I want to be compensated and I want my damn number taken off your stupid page. I expect a prompt response. I very disappointed in WW. Someone needs to contact me asap from corporate. I am emailing in response to the lack of support I received from your Weight Watchers number. I would appreciate a email or call back from someone in the corporate office who has the ability to resolve this issue.

Hi, this is my 6th year in W. I did wonderful the first few years, then it became a little more difficult. I would lose one week and gain more that my loss. This went on for about a year. I now see, weight gain every 3 out of 5 weeks. This is very depressing and discouraging. My husband is a lifetime member who did very well.

This is a journey we do together. I have talked to the group leader, my doctor, a nutritionist, and used the on line help. I journal daily, and yes I have had a day where I have used my extra points, but gotten right back on the wagon the next day. I do not think it is fair that I should be charged for the month of June when I have no intention of attending a meeting or using any of WW services. I have tried to reach someone via email, but have received on response. I have mailed back the pass for June.

If I had had some advance notice that my credit card was going to be charged I would have canceled immediately, but I guess WW thinks my whole world revolves around their billing department. How is it a good business practice to charge for services not received? In my opinion WW provides very little for the amount charged. I have to agree with a previous post. The same Sharon was also our leader in the Aberdeen NJ store and was pulled from that store as well with no warning.

She was a fantastic, inspiring and strong leader. I have been going to Weight Watchers for over 20 years and have never come across such an fantastic leader. The same thing happened to me.

We had the best leader Michelle T. We are all very close and she is our rock. The new leader is so so and pushes the product. Michelle dug deep within all of us. Engaged all of us at meetings. She increased membership to standing room only. Again big cooperations abusing the average american!!!!!! It is beyond unbelievable. I have the same experience! I will be filing a complaint too-anyway know if there is a class action lawsuit going?

She is beyond excellent and has helped with our journey for 2 years. Today when we went to the meeting we were told she was gone. No warning, no good bye, just gone. Her replacement was weak. I would like to know where Sharon L is and why she was just pulled from our meeting, When I called I was put on hold for 11 minutes. It is a disgrace that WW would just pull such an outstanding leader from our meeting. We are not happy and we would like some answers.

Lost my Lifetime number and for 2 months have been trying to talk to someone who understands how to spell my name and speak English! So far all I get is someone tells me to call a number with a recording that no one returns a call..

I hope someday to straighten this out …………Hope no one ever looses their number. Call Lorie at their main number She is the head of the customer complaint department.

I also had issues with the over seas call centers. I am very disappointed in WW for not issuing a written update to your product points. I have relied on the points on your packaging and now I find out they are old packages. Chip cookies were 2 points and the last time is went shopping they had a row a cookies at 2 points and right next to it was row of cookies 4 points. Under the old package 2 cookies was 4 pts now its 8. Your small ice cream bar was 2 pint and now it is 3 points.

Your cheese stayed the same but you pep. Maybe you should consult Oprah. A printout passed out at meetings, on line, to member e-mails, that is not an unreasonable request.

You deal in weight problems, therefore you should look at everything you do from that point of view. I spent 45 minutes on the phone with the Philippines and no resolve. I went to the local WW in Toms River and they directed me to the chat line. After chatting with Lady Felipe Mae G for another 20 minutes, still no help whatsoever. Worse company I have ever dealt with. My issue is I paid for a 3 month program on January 2, for I have a confirmation email from WW for that same day!

Good thing I retained it because no one at WW can see it! My bank saw it when the funds were removed from my bank account. Then WW deducted an additional Trying to get this resolved has been tortuous. Philippines said there was no supervisor and Tech Support was busy.

The chat line referred me to the number. All I want answered is why I paid Shame on WW and Oprah for running such a poor business model and farming work out to the Philippines when so many Americans are out of work. WW is not a cheap plan and then they take money out of the account for whatever program they want. The program may or may not work but taking money out of an account and then not being able to find it on their end is sad.

My suggestion is to keep every email and confirmations you have with them. When I first joined WW in October we could not get the app to download on my iphone. The girls at my local meeting place got it loaded and working finally. I was on a 3 month program back then and the app worked just fine.

Then last night when I went to track a snack around 8 p. I worked with it and worked with it last night, asked a fellow WW friend and never got in.

I had to spell everything, and she still got it wrong. I asked for someone who spoke and understood better English or her supervisor and she insisted that I deal with her. After 10 minutes of frustration, I practically pleaded with her to put someone else on the line. I would like some statistics on the success of members to achieve goal weight with the new Smartpoints program. I am a lifetime member. I have approximately 30 pounds to go to re-reach my goal.

I have lost almost 70 pounds, almost 50 since September. I joined to lose weight knowing from past success, that Weight Watchers worked. They can not answer the daily calories this new program is built around, the statistics of success among members, or a simple question like what bread is factored into the points for a sub at Subway.

I will wait in great anticipation for an answer to my questions: What is the average caloric intake for someone assigned 30 daily points? And finally, what bread is used to calculate the sub sandwich points at Subway in etools? I have never been so frustrated with a company and their customer service as I am with Weight Watchers. I have been a Weight Watchers for a number of years and technical issues of the last year are deplorable!

Most recently I have been trying for the last year to get the weight recorded at the meeting to automatically update the weight watcher tools. The Help Desk which is in the Philippines is useless they tell you to go to the meetings and get it fixed there, the you go to the meeting and they tell you to call the helpdesk. It is the worst run company I have interacted with. There are tons of apps out there and programs just as good is Weight Watchers I am seriously thinking about canceling my membership membership with I have had for years.

I am so frustrated with Weight Watchers. I paid for 3 months. After 2 weeks, I had so much stress, I realized I could not continue.

I asked if I could talk to someone from the United States, they said they could not transfer me, I would have to keep calling back to see if someone would pick up from the United States, however, I keep getting the Phillipines.

When I did not get the refund after weeks, I checked the confirmation email and it was gone!! GONE from my server! I then called twice, was on hold for an hour or more.

They also could not find my account, apparently they found an old account. Finally I gave them the number and they found me. While I was waiting on the phone for the girl to give me a refund after I had to get very aggressive , I cancelled my subscription online.

This was after one and a half hours. I used to have no problem with them, now its horrible and I am going to go on FB and let others know. With the prolific child obesity in America, this service could prove to be invaluable to children and their families.

Weight Watchers could partner with Michelle Obama and her Move initiative as well as partner with schools across the nation for programming and healthy food options.

Would not this be a totally new market for WTW — a financial incentive? But, above and beyond this, imagine the good a company like WTW could do for this population that would pay dividends on a national scale. Mr Taylor great minds must think alike!
