I'm on Weight Watchers. Again. Unofficially. I start every Monday since the end of Passover, only to fall off the wagon by Thursday. Recently I have become even more efficient and some weeks last only until Monday night.
I am persuaded it is not my weak will, but faulty WW system. Seriously, let me walk you through this. The allowed daily food points are allotted based on current weight and work like this: you starve for a few weeks, drop some weight, hopefully, and as a reward you lose one point worth of food for every ten pounds lost. Imagine the horror of losing 60 pounds!
What were they thinking? Where is the incentive here? If WW offered unlimited cheesecake or ice cream or eclairs or preferably all three, I could see myself following through. Otherwise, it's like I starve only to starve even more once I lose the weight? It's like you get punished and not rewarded for actually following the diet. Why would I do that?
