    I am currently following Slimming Worls and not really having much success and I think is because i really need some form of portion control and SW doesn't give me this. I have followed WW before so i understand the points system and doing exercise etc to earn more points.

    I keep haring adverts on the radio saying that WW has changed etc and I wondered how it had changed. I want to lose 3 stone and at first I thought SW would work for me but WW i think will be better as I can eat anything as long as I point it and it will work better with my boyfriend who can eat the same as me only bigger portions.

    Could anyone give e any advice as to how it has changed and any tips to make it work.

    I am off on holiday in 5 days for a week so will be starting a club on Tuesday 21st.

    Thanks in advance.

    It hasn't changed yet so no one knows what's going on. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. I didn't lose on SW in the past either, WW suits me much better :)

    No one knows what the changes are at the minute as they haven't been officially released, but I have heard (from the WW messageboard) that we won't like one of the changes!!! I'm still none the wiser!!

    I would start WW on 21st with what you know already and what for the changes to be officially released. Good luck.

    Sounds intriguing Lydia. I wonder what they are...

    I suppose if we don't like the changes there's nothing to stop us continuing with the way it's done now - it seems to work!

    I'm still in a flap over it, honestly its just ridiculous now, I see all these damn adverts "Weightwatchers is changing" bla bla bla and no one knows what the changes are!!! AAAARRRGGGHHH LOL!:rolleyes:

    I hope its not that they are changing how we calculate the number of points to eat each day and we all get less, I couldn't cope with that!! Or that they are going down the American route of calculating points by taking into about Fibre and we all need to buy new points calculators!!!

    I wondered if it might be the recalculation of points to take account of fibre as well...

    Thanks for all your advice. I looked on the website and couldn't see any changes so I'm glad its not just me that seemed blind as a bat!

    I'll wait with baited breath to see what the changes are then.
