Hi!
I'm a former bulimic, and I have abandoned most of the behaviours. I just need to focus on the quality of the food (and the WW thing makes it so easy - fruit and veggies are free, lean proteins are really easy to get into etc) nad get back the hang of portion sizes.

I've got 29 daily points and 49 weelky points.
I am searching for opinions on this things - do you think WW would help me?
Honestly, I'm on my first day and it feels comfortable in opposite to counting calories which starts as something I'm scared of and proceeds in something that controls me in no more than five hours (i really can't stand numbers... I end up trying to save them calories for ??? and then starve myself, overeat, guilty, compensate, start again)

I would just be careful bc weight watchers triggered a lot of people to start counting calories, and if you're using it to reeducate yourself, maybe try using the maintain function for a while to teach you healthy portions and healthy choices without losing. I think that would be most beneficial.

I used to count calories, it looks easier to me with the points system cause I did my best to forgot calories of all the foods by heart, and I see the points as "Low is healthy, high is okay" BUT without all the fuss on calories/macros.
I'll try to make it as you say, on the maintain function!

I think they have an actual setting you can use instead of lose weight you can choose to maintain. :) good luck!

I searched up, you have to take the weightloss number, add 4 points and then see if you need to increase or decrease for 2 points every week.
I'm writing it there so if someone needs, the info is easy to get!

WW worked for me for awhile. Then I hit a never ending platau. I was doing everything right but eventually got so discouraged that I relapsed. If you're only looking to maintain it should work. It does teach you to make healthier choices. It can be easy to get carried away with the "free" fruit, which may have been one of my problems.
