Just left WW

Hey all,

I joined WW on 1/1/14 and made my goal, which was to lose 50lbs. I recently cancelled my membership in order to save money, and to challenge myself to maintain my weight. Since leaving WW I've lost another 4 lbs, and have adopted the clean-eating lifestyle. Anyone else here a former member of WW? I miss the online community that they offered and I am hoping to find some friends here :)

    Don't you get a free lifetime membership when you reach your goal?

    Nope, no free membership. No worries though, I'm finding success using my fitness pal! Tracking helps motivate me to stick to my food and exercise goals, especially after a weekend in which I had several "cheat" moments....aka, this weekend :( lol

    You don't get free membership if you do Weight Watchers Online. I assume that is what you did.

    If you were a meeting member, you weigh in once a month and if you are within 2 lbs of your goal you are free. I also quit paying for online due to financial circumstances but achieved lifetime 26 years ago and just go to a meeting once a month, love my leader! but will continue on with out the online tools

    My decision to stop WW wasn't really based on the money, its really not that much, but I don't find the need to track points anymore. Especially when there are free options such as my fitness pal. :smile:

    I quit my online membership because I got lax about the tracking and felt it was a waste of money if I wasn't going to use it and starting using MFP and found I liked the social community better here.

    I quite ww because you pay to much money and you have to be on Wifi to add your food so I couldn't add it at work or wherever I was

    Yes I was a member for close to 2 years. My knee replacement surgery put a damper on me. I've gained and now back to 2 years ago. Also, I now need hip replacement surgery.

    Just left WW because of family budget. Needed something to hold me accountable and encourage me. Also, I found that I was just eating off a list and not enjoying what I was eating. Just the same old stuff every day to stay within my points. I want to keep my loss going forward and not backwards. Thanks for your help.

    Good luck getting out. I tried to quit but still have 10 payments before I can get out. A scam

    I tried weight watchers recently for a few days and didn't like how they count smart points. So I cancelled after 2 days. I know the points plus program and following that.
