    made me laugh when it said that they found no evidence that members put weight back on when the course was finished..........RUBBISH!!!!! We have all been there, done that, bought the sweets and gained it all back plus more.

    Not the fault of WW that though! You can't blame a diet cos you regain the weight. Any diet works if we stick to it I lost on WW and regained because I went back to my old habits. Can't blame WW for that it was my own fault

    Not a chance a company the size of WW can with stand one programme. Bet it makes not one iota of difference to them
