I tried WW briefly many years ago and really didn't try very hard at it. I am getting ready to try again this week I start a 12wk course at work. I am hopeful it may work as I am desperate for something to just click, but I am afraid it won't work like everything else I have tried. I am thankful this site shows all the success stories as it gives me hope. I am trying to give up meat as well so I am unsure how this will work but I hope it does work.
