I did it and failed. But I had to lose over 100 lbs so something like weight watchers was not for me. If you try it, good luck. It is easy to do and if you do it correctly you'll lose the weight. The problem is most gain it back after a few months.
Sparkpeople is great and you might want to check out http://www.myfitnesspal.com/

sparkpeople.com...it's free

the nutrition tracker shows you how much you're actually consuming and they offer diet options

i've been using the site for about 2 years

this. I've only been using it for 3 weeks but it's been probably the easiest "diet" Ive ever done. After I started using it, I have only gone over my calorie limit 2 times. It's night a diet though, it just makes sure you eat the amount you are supposed to and exercise the amount you are supposed to.

What should I look for at a group meeting--red flags and such?  I only went to one.  I felt like those people thought about food way too much.  It was kind of creepy for me.

Are you going to meetings at all, or just the online tools?  Online.

I just signed up for a meeting on friday!  Time to stop thinking about losing weight and start losing weight!!

Those who are doing it LMKS! 

There are some valuable things I took away from it but I won't do it again.

I agree with trying Myfitnesspal.  It's a great site and there are quite a few BHM women over there who have had amazing losses.  You can use the app or the website.  The app is super handy because you can check the calories of things while eating out.

I've been slipping the past few weeks and there are members who have sent me messages to get me back on track.

Best of all-it's free!

Let me know if you join and I'll buddy with you.

Oh and if you do go to MFP and start working out it might be handy to get a heart monitor. You don't have to get one of those for $200 just any ol one that can count burned calories would work. Not all exercises are in the datebase so you'll have to manually enter some stuff.

Good luck with whatever you chose to do OP. I know losing weight isn't easy.
