See that's what I want--an actual person/persons to help me out.  Online website alone just doesn't cut it for me.

And since I like to cook, I plan to use the recipes.  I have bought the frozen dinners because they are convenient, but doesn't beat cooking it yourself.

I did it and lost a lot of weight, I was able to keep it off for almost 4 years but I gained it back because of my own laziness. I never went to a meeting, I did everything online because I was in college. WW works but I wouldn't spend money on it, I did the 14 day trial and wrote down all the points for foods I ate and tracked my progress that way. I got the cookbooks and that helped me too.

I did it online twice. I literally didn't lose any weight. It was a waste of money for me.
I use myfitnesspal now and I've lost like 13 pounds since I've been using it.
It doesn't give points, but it does give the amount of carbs/fat/protein you should eat according to your calorie goal and also helps you set an exercise goal.

Ive gotten used to eating food with less carbs on the regular. I enjoy baked salmon,yellow tail or Tuna with string beans or brocolli. I season my foods without a lot of salt. I use fresh seasoning instead.
             I think of food as a need. Not something to gorge on. I also keep my portions small so that I am satisfied not overly full. Its a way of life that works for me.Smile

I,ve done it twice and it works if you follow the instructions to a T. However I gained the weight back because once you reach your target, you have to keep counting those points FOREVER, which is highly impractical. And I think they only allow something like 5 or 6 points more than when you're on the diet. It's very constricting. The meetings help to motivate but I no longer have time for that. The online version is for people who have are steely in their resolve. Right now I'm doing green smoothies and regular exercise. It's best to view weight loss as a lifestyle change

I tried once and gave up bc like Southern, I'm carb sensitive. So I've been sticking to exercise and lowering my carbs.. Works good when I stick to it.. Just got back on track after a few days of junk..

I also like myfitnesspal as well.
