SP Premium


WW v. Sparkpeople

Sunday, May 22, 2011

I've been on Weight Watchers since the first of February and have lost an average of about a half-pound a week. Agonizingly slow! I only had a couple of weeks when I gained, and a few weeks when there was no change. I like the program a lot, but there are things about SP that I like better. I like to see all the nutrients -- particularly sodium and potassium. I like the fact that only members can see the blogs and forums. This is not true on WW -- it's open to the world, and of course, to trolls and spammers. So I guess I'll continue to go back and forth between the two.

Meanwhile, the past few weeks I've not done well on my "good health guidelines." I need to get back to planning my food, planning meals for the week, and making sure I am getting enough vegetables. These will be my goals this week.

    I have been with Sparkpeople several years and on and of WW online as well. I seemed to do better with WW because I felt more accountable (paying $$). In a year I lost 26 pounds-logged in my food and exercise faithfully. Did not participate in forums due to mentioned problems.
    Yesterday I canecelled my WW membership and will concentrate on logging my food in Sparkpeopel. My exercise regimen has become habit at this point and I have learned the importance of food tracking. If I see where I can't continue to lose I'll rejoin WW-just a psychological thing I guess. Money should not make a difference but somehow in the past it seems to have been a good motivator!!!
    Wishing u the best!!! I know u will succeed! emoticon

    I don't think it has to be WW "VS" SparkPeople. I think they complement each other. My biggest problem with WW is the cost. You can't beat FREE.
