I have tried Weight Watchers 2 times. The first time was over a year ago. I really didn't get the points and I barely exercised. The way I approached it, I was doomed to failure. I did end up loosing 9 pounds but after I quit I gained it all back and then some. 

In December I decided to try it again (My present to myself got X-mas). This time around I used the online tools for tracking since I had gotten a much better phone. What a difference it makes in tracking your food. It is sooooo much easier. I also have a Fitbit which I also used to keep track of my activity points. It syncs with WW Online as well. I have lost almost 20 pounds in 2 months and only have 40 more to go. 

I also like how the program teaches you about the value of the different food types. The 27 points I get everyday I treat like money. This means some of my favorite foods are not worth it anymore to spend points on. I also joined a gym and take a fitness class every week day. The way I eat now and exercise has become lifestyle habit. Weight Watchers works for me because you get to learn a healthy lifestyle and make them become habits. Drinking water instead of juice, more vegetables and exercising is all important. 

The great thing is I am more healthy than I have ever been. My blood pressure and cholesterol is down along with my weight and I feel wonderful.
Pros
Learning a healthy lifestyle.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I have been on Weight Watchers for 8 months now and have lost almost 30 pounds.  It really is a change of lifestyle which is hard to do in your thirties with all of the bad habits one develops by now. 

I don't think much about tracking food with Smart Points any more but it was difficult at first as everything is so new. For tracking your fitness (which is also important as it impacts your food intake) I do recommend using a FItbit or some other step tracker. It's much easier to just sych your device every day with the Weight Watchers app than manually having to enter what activities you did.

By about 2 to 3 weeks in I was getting use to everything and started to really like Weight Watchers after getting over the initial hump of learning the points system and figuring out the best way to shop for my new meal plans. I was also over the hunger pains of starting any new diet which helped.

At this point 8 months later I am eating really healthy, I am not as tired and just more upbeat. I found the gradual changes to your lifestyle Weight Watchers offers and the change of attitude towards food the best part since it makes it easier over the long run to stay with the program. I am now hooked!

Pros
If you put the effort in, it works
Cons
Tracking food takes time and is hard at first even with the app
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Weight Watchers works because it teaches you new habits. I eat much healthier while on WW and I have sensible meal portions. I know what I am having for dinner each day ahead of time because I plan for it while grocery shopping for the week.

Before, I would come home from work starving and make what ever was in the fridge at the time. My hunger would win out. With the weight watchers program and the motivation to loose weight and have a healthier lifestyle, it will make you kick your bad habits.

It's a win for me :-)


Pros
Has been the best weight loss program for me.
Cons
Had a rude customer service rep once.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Weight Watchers works as long as you put work into it. I used the iPhone app and it makes it easy for you to track how you spent your daily points. Portion control is a must though and you will be hungry at the beginning of your program.

This is my second go around with Weight Watchers. The last time I tried it I did it by myself 4 years ago and was successful in the beginning  but slowly returned to bad habits. This time around I joined with a friend and this has made all the difference as we can motivate each other to not stray from the Weight Watchers system. We are 6 months in and going strong, and most importantly loosing weight!
Pros
Point system is effective at managing what I eat
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I really like the new weight watchers smart points program, but I have had a few technical problems with the app.  If you need help, you wait forever until you get the help you need.  

I have been on WW for 5-6 months and have lost almost 15 lb. The new smart points system is designed to decrease the amount of sugar, saturated fats, etc. that everyone consumes. I was really hungry for the first 3 weeks on the program and had thought my total daily points was to low. Once I got over the hump of being hungry everything has improved. Now I just have to get my wife on the Weight Watchers program.



Pros
Easy to use and curbs appetite. Helped me lose weight.
Cons
Tech support is slow.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
