Tigerdawg, I very much empathize with you. I've been in that position at times in my life. That said, I believe you can still do a Free Week Trial of the Program online - which will afford you the opportunity to get the basic information you need, including your own personal DPT. I think you'll be able to buy a calculator from the site during the period.

 

I know/hope/believe that everybody here will be happy to help you "do it at home."

 

Try weightwatchers.com/freetrial to see about that free trial - if it doesn't work, let me know via PM. :)

 

Deborah

I'm late to the party here but I am halfway through my first day on the new plan and I could have written what Deborah did. I also skipped fruit because it cost points. I have a lot to learn because I had tons of points values memorized from the other plans but I will learn this way too.

 

I guess I am the odd man out here. I've been on the new program for just over 3 weeks now. The day that I rejoined this time I had met with a weight loss surgeon to finalize my decision and plans for surgery. I've been on WW and every other diet known to man (or so it felt) and there was NO way I would ever do WW again. I just didn't have it within me to even try it again. To describe my feelings in terms of 'despair' is truly an understatement.

 

Except things didn't go as I expected at the surgeons' office either. He was really leaning towards gastric bypass which I had and still have absolutely no interest in. I felt distraught that day, because I had completed every insurance requirement necessary to have the surgery of MY choice, and it sure didn't go the way I had planned. That was when I decided to give this new program one more chance.

 

I went to a meeting place that night and joined in order to get all the print materials, calculator, find out my points level, etc. Then I went home and joined online. I have never been more thrilled with a plan in my life. I honestly feel as though weight watcher's has finally gotten it right! The points are weighted so that I feel more 'pressure' to eat more wisely. The empty foods I had consumed-yet failed to satisfy- were not worth it anymore. The fruit I avoided because I didn't want to 'waste' a point on them are available with sensibility. I've never overeaten on fruit, so gorging on fruit is not an issue. I have more points which makes it feel possible to eat out if I need to without deprivation. I find myself choosing healthier foods in a way I never had before.

 

Perhaps the absolute biggest transformation of all, is that I considered myself addicted to sugar...seriously addicted to sugar. That is no more, and that is a freedom I can't even describe!! In 3 weeks I have lost 9 lbs.

 

I know that WW is a business and interested in making as much money as they can, but I can not disagree more vehemently that this is just about WW trying to make more money. For the first time ever, I feel that the exact opposite is true.

 

This new Weight Watcher's plan of eating is a taking everything into account in one package. No more altering foods by adding fiber in order to artificially lower points, etc, etc, etc.

 

It may sound awfully dramatic, but I honestly feel this new plan has save my life.
