Lisa can I get a copy of you material you said you had please. My meeting is not until Saturday and I have not been able to get eTools yet, so this is a real boost for me. I woldloe to eapart of the support team!! There is no discipline. I did WW online in the past and was trying to figure out why my daily points almost doubled from what it was back then.

Just signed up on your mailing list. Thanks for all the info! Starting WW work today and I am excited about the journey. My biggest hurdle is breakfast and snacking. I am not a morning person, but I have to be at work at 6AM, I need something to prepare in advance that I can put in my lunch bag on the way out the door and eat once I get to work. As well as snacks that are filling. I would love to be apart of your support group!
I have been a WW member since April and have lost 44 pounds. The program has made me aware of what goes in my mouth. Started the program to be healthier. It is working, Yaahoo!!! Would love to join your group. We need all the support we can get.
I have been a lifetime member for more years than I can remember. Weight Watchers has finally evolved into something that everyone can most definitely work worth with their daily lifestyles. This program will take a little getting used to, but I think in the long run, it will be the most satisfying plan they have ever developed!!
I would love to join the support group. The new program drew me back, one year and 30 pounds later…. I look forward to sharing the journey! Thanks for posting this. Please add me to the group. Thanks for the update and your wonderful enthusiasm! I would love to be part of the WW support group! I would love to join your group. I am an emotional eater so I have gained 20 of the 46 pounds I lost. I feel like such a failure which just adds to my depression which adds to my emotional eating!!
I think this new program is just what I need to get back on track. Maybe I can be successful online in combination with this group! Please count me in! Support groups are so important!! I definitely need to be part of your support group. My suggestion would be to have new points calculator as a permanent feature of your support blog.
Hi, I would love to be apart of the WW blog you were mentioning. I have the final stretch of 12 — 15 lbs.
I would love to be a part of this support group! I sent you an email as well but wanted to post something. So I could use the support especially since I made it to my goal weight and now have not been back there in a year!
Thanks for the great information! I have been throwing around the idea of joining WW again. Not sure if I should do online or meetings…. I love the idea of the Twitter Group…motivation, support, recipe sharing and healthy tips is the best way to achieve the healthy lifestyle.
I joined WW on-line a month ago and definitely need some inspiration!!! But I do need a push. This is my challenge.
Found your website and loved it! I want to get back on the wagon. I need support for motivation!!!! WW is the best! Thanks for all this information. It was all really helpful, especially since at 9: Sadly, I am not excited about this new plan. My concerns are fruits being zero points and there being no consideration of calories in the points calculation.
It would also be great to just have suggestions from other members on what is working for them. My BF and I have been eating our way across two continents in the last year so we are ready! Thank you for your information….
This is getting me motivated again! Have been out of WW for awhile and really need to get it going again. I would love to be part of your group! Thanks for doing such a great job outlining the new program. I am a life member but always need help staying on track. Hi I just love this site.. Just found it this morning… I really like it better than the WW site… Been giong on it for recipes.
I would love to be part of your support group. Sign me up for the support group! I would like to see input from other members on the restaurant points values. The list in etools has changed — a lot of items are no longer listed. Thanks for the simplified explanation! Thank you for being so positive and encouraging. I lost 75 pounds on Weight Watchers 5 years ago and have gained back 30 even though I am a life member.
With is new program, I am very excited to return to Weight Watchers in the next week. I am not waiting until January I am very interested in your support group, so sign me up!! And also am thrilled to have found your website! Even as a long time WW member I still need support! Would love to join the support group — I have been on and off ww for the last several years — back on now and 20 lbs down so far.
I am so happy to get a preview of the new plan! My meeting is not until Saturday and I have not been able to get eTools yet, so this is a real boost for me. I am jumping on the bandwagon…sign me up for the support group…need all the support I can get! Wow, thanks so much for all the great info! Please sign me up for your group as well.
Thanks for all you do! This is a great website you have! Thanks for all the motivation! I am definitely interested in your WW support group! I would love to be a part of your group!
Thanks for the good work you do, Danica! I have been doing not so well WW at home. I always do better by attending meetings but I get tired of the expense.
I am so ready for a change because the old plan kept me running to low point processed foods because of my hectic lifestyle so I need a little shake up in my routine. I am going to find out about the new plan and give meetings another go. I would also love to join this support group!! Good luck to everyone! Thanks, Danica, for the motivation. I would love to be part of the support group. Was maintaining my goal weight until some health issues got me about two years ago, and prednisone has become a daily part of my life.
So, I went back yesterday and am committed to losing this extra weight. Would love to be a part of your chat. I would love to join the weight loss group. I have been attending meetings for just over a year and have lost 40 lbs. I am SO excited about the new plan and feel it is the new start I need to lose the last 20 lbs.
Thanks for putting this together! I have been a WW re-starter for years! Two years ago, I got very close to goal and quit going to meetings dumb!! I am very excited about the new plan, as I think it is forcing me to re-think what I am doing. I became too complacent with the Points system. You are a great motivator!
Danica, please sign me up also. I do WW online and attend weekly meetings. I am looking forward to receiving the meeting materials on the new program. I may even purchase the kit as you did. Thank you for all of the information. I need to lose 15 pds. I will do this again and hope that I can maintain this time around with the new point system.
Just joined for the third time yesterday. Got 30 pounds to lose. I would very much like to be a part of this support group, too. Would like to be part of support group. Been a WW member since , been a lifer since Still go to meetings every Sat morning although I did go last night to learn the new program..
Please count me in. Do I need a certain kind of phone? I am going to a meeting tomorrow to check out the new program. I would like to join the WW support group as well. I am excited about this new challenge with the new program. It will mean the need to be consciously self-ware of what is required to make it work. I am up for the challenge. Please sign me up for the Support group. I have been toying around with joining WW and the only reason I have not done so is because of the mixed messages I have received regarding online and face to face meetings.
Schedule wise online works best for me. I am in front of a computer at least 9 hours out of the day, so online is also convenient. I have been told that face to face meetings present greater accountability.
Keeping that in mind, I have not done anything. I would love to join and online WW Support Group. Was doing WW on-line, but with the new program decided to hit the weekly meetings again. Worth it to hear all the info and get the materials.
Would like to be a part of your WW support group. Now struggling with keeping it off. The meetings really do work and I am looking forward to hearing more about the plus program. Would love to get my hands one of the new calculators and program to read up on it. Can you access this program off line anywhere? I would also like to join the WW support group, I think it would be very helpful!
Thanks for taking the time and expaining the new plan for us. I would love to be included in the support group. Looking forward to our meeting tonight. Heard that is going to be easier to follow. My leader said she lost 5 plus lbs the first 2 wks. Hope I can do it too. I would like to join the support group also. So the weeks to come will be key in proving me to be a skeptic… I pray to god that I am so so wrong. How about pictures of food, much like the egg on toast and apple picture.. Has anyone seen the Points value for Vitatop Muffin Tops?
They are one of my staples and my meeting is not until later this week. And how about a shout out to Starbucks with a Grande Skinny Latte weighing in as one of the free power foods — Way to Go!! I dropped out of WW three weeks ago as I was doing so badly. MY own problem not WWs.
Felt like I was wasting my money. A bit embarrassed at weighing in. I joined 40 years ago and did so well and became a Lifetime Member.
Even worked for them as a clerk. I am so ashamed of myself for not having better control over what I stuff in my mouth. Hopefully this new programme may do the job. I did my best under the original programme but then again I was 40 years younger. What I would love to see on weight watchers would be simpler recipes and cooking just for two as well as families.
Sandra in Ca — Thanks — I scrolle dup and saw that Viatatops chocoloate also my favorite went to 3 points — but like you said, wih free fruits and veggies, who cares! If you like oatmeal, you may want to try this: Follow the Quaker Oatmeal box directions for serving quantity.
Start with 2 sticks of whole cinnamon in the water. Add 1 cup of Steel Cut oats great fiber and 3 cups of regular not instant oatmeal. While that is bubbling away, add a splash of vanilla extract to taste. Keep stirring every few minutes and while that is happening cut up an apple or two remove the skin , lay in a glass pie dish and add ground cinnamon and a few shakes of Butter Buds or Molly McButter this is real butter just dehydrated to the top.
Add a little water and microwae on high for about 3. When the oatmeal is done, add the apples and stir well. The cinnamon will have thickened just a little and will over the next few days give even more flavor the oatmeal.
You can add a little more ground cinnanmon to taste. After the oatmeal cools, you can store in the fridge — it will last for about 1 week you will have just about enough for 1 cup a day.
This is really good and you can take it to work in a plastic container — I travel with this even when visiting relatives so that I can have at least a decent breakfast. I admit, as a Lifetime Member who has recently gotten back on the wagon I fell off I was more than a little freaked out about the change! But I will perservere! Oh, and I would love to be part of the support group!
I now do WW on-line, and miss the support of the meetings! I really enjoyed your take on the new program. I am a lifetime member and need support! I would really like to join your group. Thanks for all the information about the new program. I am excited and looking forward to a good change. I need to lose about 80 pounds so I will need all the encouragement I can get.
Would love to join your support group. I went to the meeting today and got the new material. It is going to take some getting used to. Please sign me up for group too. I made lifetime in and thought I could do it myself. Went back in January of I love the new program for some of the same reason others are nervous about it.
It makes me feel like a newbie again and re-motivates me. All the past programs have worked if you follow them, but now it seems that new program is much more healthy oriented but still permits you to make your own choices. Would love to join the support group, need alittle added motivation to get into this new program.
I am a lifetime member since ; had a few set backs when I fell and broke my ankle 3 years ago. I need to get back on track and get back to excercising as best I can! The good thing is I am sill under my goal.
The other good thing is that when I weigh in on Sat. I will have lost weight. I usually weigh in before eating, in the lightest clothes possible. The program is about a new mindset. Eating higher point quality foods to get up to 29 points. Today I came up short by 6 points and I had no room or desire for any more food. Hopefully this is a good thing! Will keep you posted. I havce been on and off the program for many years. This new program might be just what I need to stay on track.
Please add me to your group when it does start! Day 2 on the new program and I am completely hooked! I lost about on the former program and have kept it off for 2 years and still track everything I eat online. I needed a boost and this is exactly it! I have been trying to lose another 10 , but have been struggling with that. I am anxious to see how all the fruit is going to impact me one of the first things I did was buy grapes and bananas!!
I have 29 pts each day and today at 9 pm, I still have 11 remaining. Would love to be part of your group! Now is the time!!! Oh, and I love your website! I would loooooove to join the support group!!
Change is always hard however I really like the new program. Went to the meeting today that talked about the new point system. I love the fact that fruit is now 0 points. After the meeting I went to the store and stocked up on fruits and veggies. Please include me in your support group when its up and running. Please let me know about the details when you have the finalized. I am excited about WW again. I would love to participate in the support group.
Went to the new points plus roll out this am and I think this the best of them all. While many point values have increased Progresso 0 pt soup is now 1 there are many that have decreased as well turkey breast from 1 to 0. This new program has renewed my enthusiasm which is so important especially during the holidays. Please add me to your e-mail list. Would love to meet new buddies struggling with the same issues. Thank you Danica, for your enthusiasm and insights. With HBP, high cholesterol and triglycerides and 50 extra pounds, my doctor has been very patient with me….
I am about to rejoin WW to finally lose those pesky last 25 pounds I have been trying to shed for years now…. Happy to have found your web site. A support group is a great idea. Very excited about getting on this new WW plan, it has renewed my faith in WW. I find it much more complicated than the old point plan. I guess because I now need a calculator to figure out points when I was able to do it in my head.
On points plus I have gone over the old points number a point or 2 each day but stayed within my points plus number. I know that WW has tried to incorporate the newest nutritional information into this new program but they also have a profit motive in getting new and older members into the meetings and also in selling new materials and kits.
Having done the new program for the last 3 days I have to tell you it is almost essential that you purchase the new points calculator and perhaps the new complete food companion. Most of the foods I eat just are not covered in the free materials. I guess we will see if in the long run it works. I have to wonder, after 3 days of doing it the new way, if in a year or 2 we will be back to doing it the old way in some renamed new plan. So excited about the new program.
My first meeting is today! Please sign me up for the online support group — that sounds great! Where do you buy the new kit for that price? I have looked online and they are like dollars. I found your site by searching for the new WW info, excellent review. I just recieved my new package on yesterday and it is soooo exciting. Way to go WW buddies! I have done WW in the past, but all the enthusiasm about the new program has convinced me to try it again!
Hello Danica, I appreciate your comments and enthusiasm regarding the new WW plan. Last evening I attended my regular meeting and I must admit it was the most quiet our group has ever been, just trying to listen and grasp the new concepts as our leader discussed them. I just typed in WW new plan in my search and stumbled onto your webpage and it is wonderful. Explained so much more and the comments from friends has helped a great deal. I reached my goal and will work hard to maintain it for life!
But I am confused about how I can get my daily points target. On the old plan, it was I am not into going to back to a meeting right now and I do not subscribe to etools I am a Lifetime Member and the third option is to use my points calculator to calculate the daily points target seems to be the best bet for me, but how can I figure out my daily points target using my points calculator???
Thanks for this post! I love the information you posted and looking forward to the new program! I have a points calculator from the most recent before this program change will i need to purchase a new one or is it the same one? Love to join , lifetime WW member.. But like even the idea of more than 18 per day and fresh fruit 0 Yeah!!! I heard that the old points calculator is obsolete now and you need to buy a new one! I guess to be successful, one needs to make an investment! Looks like the kit with free calculator may be the way to go!
Glad some people are interested in the new program. On the plus side, I found a formula online evidently the points plus system has been in place in Europe for a few years under a different name:. Yesterday, I was able to call WW number to ask a Q about the new electronic calculators. Is anyone else having similar problems?
Will make the transition easier to manage with an entire group of WWs along side! The new points system sounds very exciting — free fruit! I bought the books and all that good stuff.
It didnt break me but it was excpensive. So now if I want new books I have to pay for them. I do have an i phone so I have the app. I am almost a lifetime member. Im not sure if I like the new plan.
I just found your blog and I love it!!! I think it totally worth 30 something but after getting it home 55 seemed outrageous for it. But I am loving the new program, I ate my normal breakfast of oatmeal and yogurt this morning, and while I usually ad a fruit to it.
This morning tough I added strawberries, raspberries and a banana!! Loving the zero point fruit!! I would like to join the support group. I was confused by the new program at first, but I have the hang of it now, I hope. I would love to be a part of the support group.
This would hopefully prevent that. And these are the only two ways that I can calculate points now because there is no free slider. I would be fine with the new program if there was a slider or free app. Laura, I would try to talk to your leader about the situation, sometimes they can be helpful. Also, once the big excitement of the new program is over, I wouldnt be surprised if they started having free ways to figure out points- and we all know a pirated version will be online very soon.
Not that I support trademark infrigement! Every couple years this happens. After I lost my weight on winning points? Thank you so much for all this info!
I entered in the nutrition info for a Special K Protein Meal bar and the new points value is 5 was 3 — I entered in the same nutrition info but lowered the protein and the points actually went down — I thought protein would lower points, not increase them. Went to a WW Mtg. Very excited about the new PointsPlus Plan. Please sign me up for your WW Support Group.
You have such a nice your site here. I love the idea of your blog and support group! Also being an on the go mom, it made it very difficult to stay on the program.
I would also love to see ideas shared. As a single parent I can no longer afford to attend meetings…that 39 a month is a huge expense for me…one that can go to utilies, groceries, etc.
I could use a support group outside of weight watchers where I can get the support and encouragement that I need to stay on track. I would also like to join your support group. Any help available to stay on the wagon would be greatly appreciated. Please sign me up! One more thing-I would like a section where people attending meeting might give a summary of what the weekly meeting was about..
This would be a lot of fun for those of us who cannot attend meetings. I am 71 joined ww in , lost 72 lbs, became a receptionist, then a leader for 6 years.
Became ill and could not exercise for a long period, gained 40 lbs and am back. It is much harder, but I am determined to lose 28 lbs which would put me at my goal weight. Just discovered your site. I am getting motivated again about losing the weight. Would love to be part of the support group!!! Thank you for all your hard work on this site.
I would like to be part of the WW support group. Been a lifetime on and off for years. A new program will be difficult to learn — but maybe motivational at the same time?
Going to meeting tonite. Thanx for sharing that prices will go UP in January. Am a lifetime member, but 10 pounds from my goal weight. Please add me to your group for motivation to get to goal and stay there! What a great explanation of the new program. I am a new WW user and was just getting the hang of it when they changed the guidelines. Liz, the older versions of Weight Watchers many plans had lots of journals with the check off boxes for the exchanges count for each day.
If you go on Richard Simmons web site you can get a similar print out of an exchange system journal sheet and it has boxes too. I just take the old WW plans system tracker with box check off sheet and copy many more days and sheets for me to keep track from my old Weight Watchers material.
Does anyone use the TurnAround plan from several seasons back? That worked great for me, but I don't have it and want to go back to that. Every year weight watchers seems to revise their plan. Wonder if they plan to do that. Shirley, yes weight watchers changed or modified plans every year and likely still does. It is meant to keep up with science as new info becomes available from the weight loss studies.
It also helps then sign up new members to keep recent and members wanting the latest plans. I think the turnaround was an early points system I recall. You can go online to eBay and amazon and search for people selling their old material. There are plenty of older packages there. I love this diet. I actually lost weight on it. Weightwatchers wouldn't give it to me. Lynn hi and welcome. You can get all or most info on the Weight Watchers older version diet from the book: It comes in hardcover and three ring binder form.
It can be ordered used, from Ebay or Amazon or online book site or a book store maybe could get you one used. It was published in by Macmillan Inc and was written by Weight Watchers international. It has a description of the plan, menus, and some exchanges. They published it prior to the introduction of their points plans so it has the older information. You will have to draw your own food journal sheets and copy them, to check off squares if you want to track exchanges, though one similar is on TOPS websites and Richard Simmons web sites.
Be sure to get the exact title, and year as they wrote others that look similar. Tops still uses a similar plan as one of its options. Any chance of getting a copy of the exchange program posted by Kelly on 8th August We have been looking for you. The bad news is we had no luck in locating that BUT we did take everything we learned while looking for and wrote a few articles just for you! The exchange lists are located here: Let us know if it helps!
I too lost a lot of weight in after first baby on the Original non-points WW version and have been searching for the old red booklet and the weekly food diary. Does anyone please have the booklet scanned and the food diary? It was the only diet that has ever worked for me. You might want to check ebay and see if anyone has a copy for sale. Hi, I have been looking forever to find the old Weight Watchers plan to no avail.
I came upon your site and I see the menu at the beginning, but the one I did I had 19 points a day and when I typed in the food it told me how many points. Do you have a list of foods with points? Hi Donna, Here is a food-to-points converter that we ran across http: Where you had 19 points available, I'm betting you were not using the PointsPlus system.
This post is about an older WW system where you just had to eat different foods. If you scroll to the top of this page, you will see a box that contains reviews of a few different diets. We hope this helps! I have wanted to start the old WW diet for years, as it is the only diet that worked for me.
I enjoy food that is fresh, not from a box. The old plan was very easy to follow. I do not have any of the instruction books only the Daily Tracker sheets. Thank you for this site. If you are able to email me one, I'd be very grateful! There is a food tracker sheet here: If not, say the word and we'll scout out another for you! Is there anyway I could get a copy of the things you have found.
I suffered a stroke due to an injury and not able to exercise like I was able to before. This program worked wonderful for me to loose my weight before and had hit my goal. Now I feel this is the only thing I can count on to help me in this time.
Have a broken hip joint and it is making me fall farther behind. Please help if you can. Hi fellow weight watchers! I was so glad to find this site and spent the last week working SO hard at trying to follow the old program which worked great so many decades ago. Now it's the weekend and I completely blew it, so of course, I'm so disappointed in myself. Here's hoping I can get back on track tomorrow!
You can get back on track - we're sure of it. Be proud of your self for starting on the road to your success. All roads have a bump or two - no worries. Here's hoping this week is a good one for you! Thank you so much for providing the planner and menu outline. I used it successfully when I was in high school and now my high school aged son and I will be using it together to shed some extra pounds. Well this is just awesome!
My college-age daughter and I are doing the very same thing right this minute. I lost 6 stone 40 years ago with the old weight watcher plan. I have rejoined weight watchers and hate the new points plan. There is no discipline. When I see ''free foods'' I just eat them all day, that's no good to me. I am going to use the old way. This is the WW plan that I prefer and I'm glad they have a variety of plans so we can all pick and choose.
If you get a chance, check out the Satan Diet that we've posted here. It's a healthy way to jump start your weight loss. I started with the Satan Diet and moved nicely into this WW plan with 7 lbs already gone. It felt good and I was able to continue losing weight. I tried the points system twice.. I have been thinking about the original plan for a while now and could remember some of it but not all. Thank you all for posting what you recall. Going to set it in motion! Would you please send me the old WW program, like you I lost weight years ago.
I've tried the new program and do not like it. Really appreciate your help. It is here on this same site. There are actually 2 articles which were written just last month. Thank you for resurrecting the old WW plan. In , I was a chubby year-old when my dear mother sent me to my first WW meeting. We sat in a hotel conference room and I recall that most of the ladies always had a can of Tab or Fresca.
I am not a fish eater, so eating fish every other meal was daunting. I won't even mention the liver. It was very hard, at that age, but I lost 35 lbs.
My mother was very supportive, even though she was an exceptional cook. She often fixed my special meals while cooking the "regular" meals for herself and my sister. Undone by what I felt was a monotonous diet, I gave up and regained most of the weight over the next two years. I ended up going back and trying the different "improved" versions every other year since.
I will soon be 60 years old. I am now facing a do or die health situation and do not need the freedom of these everything-goes plans that are out today. I have been encouraged to have surgery by a couple of doctors who clearly do not understand the psyche of career dieters. Cut-and-fix solutions only work if the individual understands what and how to eat The old WW is spot on. Thanks again and pray for me.
You are quite welcome! Hopefully this diet plan will help you make positive life choices to move you in the right direction. There are a few other articles on my website that you might want to peruse to get some other ideas regarding how to lose the weight and keep it off. Here are 2 tips that I think are the most helpful: When you make dinner start with fresh ingredients to ensure your body is getting the nutrients it needs to keep you healthy and craving free; 2 Only allow yourself to eat during an hour window each day.
The clock starts with the first item you put in your mouth in the morning. This will help you cut down on the nighttime snacking that destroys so many of us! On those nights that you absolutely MUST have something to eat after your time limit has expired, limit your choices to vegetables only. Check in every once in awhile and let us know how you're doing So glad I found this site. Been doing WW Points Plus and not losing.
Thank you for this great info! I am so happy that I found this site I've been looking for the old Weight Watchers plan for a long time. I remember losing lots of weight when I followed the plan, and I was very disappointed when they changed to the points. So pleased to have found this site.
I'm about to start the original WW plan too. Although successful on very high protein diets, they leave me feeling ill and lethargic.
I thought about why I find diets -like Atkins - such hard work, and realise that I miss milk and fruit to the point of distraction. Also that a few carbs make me feel so much better. Bit of a light-bulb moment! The old 's WW program had all the benefits with enough weight loss to keep me going; I'm so bored of losing half a pound a week etc. Yes, it's a tough regime, but I hope it's going to work again, as it did when I was a youngster. BTW - is there a forum for fellow "originalists"?
Best wishes, J xxx. Hi Weight Watchers, Do you remember the "cheese French toast" recipe. You take 1 slice of bread, toast it, and cut it on half length wise to make 2 full slices of bread. Weigh out 1 oz of hard cheese and put it between the 2 slices of bread like a cheese sandwhich.
In a bowl mix 1 egg, a little water, and a sprinkle of cinnamon and whip it together. Put cheese sandwhich in the egg mixture, coat the sandwhich and cook it like French toast.
Drizzzle a little syrup over the top when you put it on your plate. This was delicious and only 1 bread, 2 proteins, and 1 fat. Now I make it with 2 slices of bread, 2 eggs, and 2 oz cheese and it is really good.
Lisa, I would love if you could email it to me nmmjg comcast. Lisa, I don't have your email address. That is why I provided my email address. I am interested in this information. It was the program I used and lost 40 pounds. Could I have a copy please. I have the booklets from the '90s including Superstart. Superstart is basically outlined as Breakfast: Protein was 4 oz. Milk selections are fat free Veggies are unlimited, of course About calories per day average.
To cmatthews would you mind sending me the superstart outline. This seems so easy to follow and the points system is too much for me to deal with. Could you send me the old ww plan. The new WW plan is not working for me.
What kind of bread do you buy for the old program? I am looking for the full choice plan listing the sample menus for 7 days. This was from the early 's. I agree with the previous posts the points system is too complicated. Would be happy to hear back. Hi Lisa, Please let me know how to obtain the entire WW program and manual. Bello Lisa, I al interested in the entire WW program from , including the entire manual. Plz send me an email.
I am looking for the menus that were on the plan in the middle to late 80's. I was so successful on that easy plan. I do not like the new one. I haven't been able to stick with it or loose weight. I would like to have the entire booklets that told you each day, each meal and what you can substitute.
Girl name Lisa that replied said she had all the manuals I love weight watchers, the old plan is the best for me and easy to follow.
Thanks for you help I have only been able to find bits and pieces of this program. I am in desperate need to lose weight as I did back in I have a weeding coming up in 6 months and I'm using this event as the push I need to do it again.
You can send it to cvf yahoo. Hi Kristen Could you send me the old weight watchers plan via email. I lost my book and I loved this plan and wanted to start it again. Can you please connect me with a copy of the old 's food tracker and the 's diet plan? I remember losing a ton of weight then and now I have a ton and a half to re lose. I am a lifetime member because of that diet and I really wan to be again. I have also been looking for years for the super start plan from My basement flooded 20 years ago and i have not been able to find this information anywhere.
If anyone else has these older plans that can be emailed I would love them gmmunj yahoo. I am so relieved that I found this website. I am a life time member of the original Weight Watchers from I left ages ago. Once it was changed to the Points system it was impossible for me to follow being that I hate numbers and math. They made it so horribly confusing to even want to lose weight. I had a breast reduction for health reasons 5 years ago. And practically starved myself for the surgery. Needless to say it was very, excruciatingly very hard to maintain that dieting mode.
I tried to go back to Weight Watchers some years ago. I hated the Points system. My mind set was strictly on the old WW program from , They kept saying forget the old program.
Being that it was very structured and I needed to be guided with measuring and portion control. To the point of obsessiveness. I lost a couple pounds the first week on the new program, the following week gained one half a pound.
Well that was enough for me. I left Weight Watchers and I swore to myself that I would never go back. Although I became a lifetime member and was awarded my "key to the future".
I came back to a Weight Watchers where you could not see in private surrounded by a cubicle your own weight loss on the scale. They had to tell you behind the counter what you weighed. And I am so very sorry that I threw out all my old Weight Watchers books. Everything you had to pay for when you use to just get it for free. The dining out booklet and all the other books that helped keep you going and coming back to the meetings. I would really love the old Weight Watchers menu plans.
Is there a way to still get them. Thank you for all your help. It is so good to know that I am not the only one who misses the old Weight Watchers food plan and tracker sheets. It is so good to feel not so all alone that there are others that still want the old food menu plan. I am very interested in the old Weight Watchers diet menu planner.
The old Weight Watchers diet worked for me. I cannot for the life of me understand the points system that they changed it to. It is so good to know that there are so many who couldn't stand the points program. Please email me any information in regards to the old exchange plan on Weight Watchers.
My email address is. Michelle The portion controlled old diet plan works. I wasn't sure if my comment was posted. I just saw that it was. How can you get the old books to Weight Watchers old exchange menu plan. I am looking for the 1st plan with the size of each serving. I just can't adjust to the points. I lost on that plan. Thank you for any help. It was a 5 week plan and it was a booklet of sorts with meal suggestions and food tracker. Anyone who can e mail me a printable version of the old diet menu plans or lists of foods and quantities, would be so appreciated.
Moving forward, if you would like one and haven't received it yet simply fill out the form at the bottom of the post and it will be sent to you automatically! I too had great success on the WW plan from the 90s and became a lifetime member. The points system is so irritating. By constantly having to keep track of points all day, I have too think about food all day and constantly plan around that; therefore, I am constantly hungry.
It is a vicious circle. If anyone has the serving breakdowns per meal and the food lists from the 90s pre-points please send them or direct me to where I can find them online. The help will be greatly appreciated! Just wanted to ask if I have gone about this the right way. By filling out this form should I receive a copy of the old WW program?
I would be truly grateful! I sent one to you the other day. Let me know if you don't find it in your email and I'll try again. Have a happy day! Had some things going on with my world and it's been a while since checking email and this page. If you don't mind would you send it again. I had so much mail I had to just clean up my email. Thank you so much!!! I would like a copy also. Its the only plan that has ever worked.
Thank you for sharing the Original Weight Watchers Diet. My sister started the 21 Day Diet Fix and I told her that it was basically a copy this one and a lot more expensive to start! Now, I have proof. It costs a lot less - and we're actually sharing ones that WW seems to have abandoned for their newer points programs. Let us know what you and your sis find as differences, please.
I hope your day is good! Please send it to diasign att. I would love a pdf version of the old plan I lost 60 pounds on the old plan at age 16 and need to lose it again.

I need a copy photocopy Just the listing of foods, amts and the points for each-- the last few pages included some of the WW prepackaged foods as well.
When can I expect this? My first WW meeting was over 40 years ago The Leader was Mimi Ackerman.. I have never forgotten her name.. The food plan and all instructions was printed on a pink card about 3x8 inches maybe 3 x 10 inches It was the best and my weight stayed off for quite a while Now I would like to drop about 40 lps So excited when I found the old food plan that Jean N.

Hi guys, could o please have a copy of the quick start diet please. Followed this in the early 90's it was brilliant. Hi all, I have been looking everywhere for this and cannot find it. It is the only one that ever worked for me. I remember weighing out my cereal,proteins etc Would love if one of you would email me on all the literature for this diet.
I too am happy I found this site.. I would appreciate a copy of the s wow diet. It is a healthy diet and I lost 40 Lbs 40 yrs ago.
The only low fat food substance was diet parlay. As I recall you were suppose to eat 3 veggies and two fruits a day. Fish and chicken and eggs. More to it than I remember. I was thinking about this last night. You could use Seven Seas Italian dressing or wish bone Italian.
If you used butter or margarine it came out of your fats. I ate tuna fish plain or mixed with cottage cheese. Kraft made cheese sticks which were a snack. I drank V 8 juice every day. I had chicken or fish for dinner and a salad and an egg and a piece of toast for breakfast. A total of 24 lbs in 3 weeks. Going to give it a shot again starting Monday. In Australia it was in a red paper cover and had about six weeks of diets in it. I lost about 20 kg using it and have not had a better diet to follow, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Could I please also get a copy of the s or s WW plan? My email address is shannonrcaldwell hotmail. Lisa and Kristina, could you send me the WW info you have from the 90's?? I would appreciate it very very much! I would like the copy of the original WW food,list.
I lost 60 pounds on that diet in the early 70's and my weight is creeping back up so time to follow it again! Could I please get a copy of the Weight Watchers - very simple plan that was around in the and was a six week plan.
I am desperate to lose weight and found that this was the best diet I have ever tried. I would appreciate any help I can get. Need to lose about 20kg again. I forgot to put my email in the above. I am also looking for the WW plan from the 70's.
My mom lost 30 pounds on it and has kept it off her whole life. I am at a bad place right now and need to try something I feel will work. I need a menu plan of suggested foods for all meals. I would really like if somone would email me the version of the original Weight Watchers plan before all this Points Plus abd now Smart Points stuff! I quit going and want to get back to basics and what actually works!!
My email is Hlebelkittle aol. I ,pet all my books from the early 90's but put them in a safe place when we moved and now can't find them anywhere!!!! This plan worked for me before and I need it again. If anyone can forward by email that plan to me I will be very grateful. Almost to the point of being depressed.
Want to kick off this year with a bang but so need ww's help. Tried the point system before, thought I'd give it another try last year just didn't have much success and eventually gave up. Loved the old program it really works and I find like many need to have the structure and planned meals to follow. The meals were also every day meals, staples that we all have. Went on the old program around fabulous. Have moved several times over the years but some how after our last move lost the books I so desperately want.
Thanks for hearing me out and if anyone can help thanks again. I was on the weight watcher program in Can you also send me the pdf of his program? It seemed to be the only plan that worked for me. So thankful I found your websitem. I was on WW in mid 90's and lost weight and maintained for quite a while Please email me original WW info.
