  1. I don't "track" my points ... what I mean is that when I am OP (and I lost 120 pounds in 2013-14 before going off the program and regaining 70), it is because I've pre-planned my foods on the previous evening, and I don't deviate from the plan unless there's a huge emergency. So tracking on my phone isn't a reason to join WW online for me. I'm not returning to official Weight Watchers membership this time; I'm relying on my experience and resources for using Points Plus, and on the support of this group and other not-officially-Weight Watchers forums.
  2. I am using Points Plus circa 2014. I think that it just depends on what you're used to. My worst fear right now is that my calculator will break before I find another one on eBay as a backup! I lost nearly 120 pounds on Points Plus (before going off it and regaining about 70 pounds!) I feel very comfortable with it, and since I'm not a big fan of the local WW meetings, nor of having to learn whatever WW and Oprah have come up with, I'mm sticking to what worked before.
  3. Thank you for your service to this online community!!!! (Is this message intended to help me make my 5-posts quota? Yup, but the sentiment is genuine.)
  4. So anyway, the way that I am using Points Plus for myself is that I am going to use my 2014 calculator until it breaks, LOL. Meanwhile I'll be collecting a couple more calculators from eBay as a backup. The most important part of it for me is getting my daily allowances of dairy, fruit/veg, etc. If I hold myself accountable for not just the calories/points consumed, but also for the proper nutritional balance, it works very well for me. I don't feel comfortable going back to WW because I will keep running into the goal weight problem that I discussed above. I have so much loose skin and empty fat cells when I weigh 165 pounds that there is just no going below that weight (without a tummy tuck, which I'd love to have someday if I can stabilize at my goal weight).
  5. I'm back on Points Plus after losing from 283 to 165, then getting stuck because my doctor wouldn't let me count this as my goal weight. Since WW wouldn't let me go on maintenance without a doctor's note, I quit attending meetings. It took me 1.5 years and a weight gain back to 232 pounds before I finally got my head together. I won't be returning to meetings (or letting my doctor make goal weight decisions for me anymore!), but I am putting together a support system to help me stay on track. I feel comfortable with 165 as a goal weight because I have massive folds of "flubber" when I'm at that weight, and this is where my weight loss naturally stops.
