Hello all,

Well, I've tried to get back into using Weight Watchers (again) this winter. And failed again after a month's effort. *sigh* This is a bummer because WW worked so well for me years ago when I had a lot of weight to loose. Trying to just take off 10-15 pounds - about 20% of my original weight lost? So very much harder to do.

I really find the system - both under the old Points system and the newer PointsPlus system - just very difficult to work and stick with when you're at the low end of the Daily Points scale. The system worked great for me when I had a lot to lose and a higher daily target that didn't feel so difficult to stick to. But now...? I don't know whether it's just my body isn't meant to get - and stay - at the weight I hit at my lowest using WW the first time.

Anyway, I've been doing some studies on PointsPlus and wrote an article recently,"The Problem of 29," trying to look at why not only could it be difficult for those with low Points targets to stick with the program, but also why it might be so hard for them to lose weight successfully even when following it. The math is a little dense, but give it a look and see what you think, if you're interested and maybe are finding that PointsPlus isn't working for you.
