I just cancelled my Weight Watchers Online account. I'm a little freaked out, but why should I pay forever? I think I've got enough of a grasp on this maintenance thing to venture off on my own now. Monday will be my 12th week of successfully maintaining my weight. I have to admit I am still a little ticked off at being denied as a Success Story. I'm also upset that I was offered the opportunity to write an article for Weight Watchers about my blog and now they just keep putting me off. I don't think they were sincere when they asked me to write the article, I think it was offered just to keep me happy. I am going to continue maintaining my weight by using www.sparkspeople.com I like the idea of counting calories, it seems far more accurate. I also like the fact that it's FREE! I will continue to track my points for the first while in my sparkspeople account just until I am confident in what I am doing.

Wish me luck!

Best of luck, though I am sure you don't need it. You can do it!

I agree with Anne and Marie. I think whatever plan you do, you will be fine!

Interesting though because at WW meetings once you reach lifetime you don't have to pay anymore as long as you are within two pounds(or so I thought). I guess it's not the same for online. That's too bad.

It does suck about WW not having you as a success story and putting you off... That would hurt me too.


All the best!

Shaunna, I'm sure you will be a great success without WW. Those 'effers' should just be straight with you. I've followed your blog since around December '06. You are an inspiration to a lot of people.
Good Luck, even though I don't think luck has anything to do with it, you have just perfected your craft. Take care, I'll still check in once in a while to see how you are doing.

You don't need luck! You only need the will and determination that got you where you are today. You can do it!

I was thinking to myself the other day that once I got to maitenance and felt comfortable enough, I was going to switch to Sparkspeople too. I do like my WW online account, but seriously why pay $22/mth forever? I think it was a wise move and you got it all in control!
