  2. I made goal in 1987 on WW's. It took me 19 weeks to loose the 19 lbs to make goal. I attended meetings monthly for awhile after goal and then drifted away. So, here I was back at my old weight the beginning of 2005. I tried WW's on line last year, but the points system drove me crazy, so I stopped. Tried the low carb diet, but feel physically bad when on that diet. So, I started WW's at home last April and have gradually lost 10 1/2 lbs so have about 8 more to go to make goal. I am a lot older now than I was in 1987 (73) and it gets harder and harder to loose as we get older. Loosing the weight so slow has got me pretty well trained on how to eat. I have the hand calculator, which I bought on e-bay and all the info for the points system, which I got off the internet. Living out in the country and having to go to town every Monday night is too much of a hassle. So doing it at home is the best for me, and I also try to get into this web site each day and get encouragement there. One of the main things about dieting this time around is that over the years I have become pre-diabetic and I am hoping loosing weight will get my BS down to normal again.
