I have completely abandoned WW for atkins style eating. WW worked well for me until I became so insulin resistant, now even Atkins is difficult

I, too, am insulin resistant. I don't do WW points, but I try to basically follow WW Simply Filling and lean toward low glycemic load foods, severely limiting starches (bread, rice, potatoes, etc.).

I went back to WW 2 1/2 weeks ago. I've been celebrating since my last weigh-in because I did so well---3# down. I doubt if I'll hav e a loss this week and the freedom with food ww allows isn't working for me so well. I need to just focus on those core foods. I do like this newer points plan they have for 2012.

Is it okay to revive an old thread? I just found this, and I joined WW thinking there is science behind the diet. But unlimited fruit doesn't work for me, so I will have to modify. I'll check out the simply filling schema.

I think your reviving this thread is a good idea. I go to WW from time to time but don't count points. I go because I'm a Lifetime member close to or at goal so it's usually free. The points have different values than they used to. They are encouraging less carbs but more fiber I think.

I was first introduced to Weight Watchers back in the late '60s, when my mother was a member. I was not overweight but attended meetings with her, just out of curiosity. I absorbed a lot of information which became habits and stuck with me for life. Not a bad thing at all. I attended as a member about 9-10 years ago and did core. I lost 21 pounds but was constantly hungry and unhappy. Gained back all the weight plus 27 more ultimately, not that anyone's counting.

Speaking of counting, I hate to do that. But thanks to my early training, it's second nature for me to eyeball a cup of food. Core was really good except I tended to overdo the grains and want more and more. In the long run, WW for me felt like deprivation. I also didn't find the meetings supportive. I would be ridiculed by the others when I said I was learning to grab an apple instead of a sleeve of Oreos. They passed around the basket with 1- and 2- point treats which I never would have thought of having on my own. It was about temptation, too. Resisting temptation, and not being able to resist temptation, then having to start all over again.

The whole foods, no measuring or counting or tracking approach of core worked well for me. I carry it over into my low-carb eating.

Even though the low-fat approach of WW and the high-fat approach of Atkins seem incompatible, I can see how one might be able to combine different parts of each and make it work. More power to those who find the meetings helpful.

Default Thank you for reviving WW thread!

Thank you for your reasonable comments. Since I joined through September, I will go to the meetings. It does help, although secretly I'll be turning away from free fruit, and using My Fitness Pal to count calories, not points. I will need your support through my process of going back to low carb, which I successfully lost 20 lbs. several years ago and kept it off. Now I'm on a drug that can make me gain weight, so low carb is even more important. You can't imagine how much I appreciate your replies on this forum! Thank you!

Welcome to the board! I find the advice here works much better than WW meetings.
