...do you think your weight loss has been slower with the new systems?? i have been alternating F&H and PP and found i am so much less hungry this time around compared with 'vintage' points - I'm wondering if my weight loss will be slower as a result?? Any experience? smile

I lost loads more weight and in a smaller timescale on PP (4 stone in 10 month) I found the old system hard work and slow. I also felt fuller on PP.

I'm rejoining next Tuesday when I'll be 3 weeks post baby. Need to get back on it!

I have never got my head around PP. I do understand it but 26pp is never enough and I always go ott on the weeklies.

I lost 2 1/2 st on vintage WW and kept it off until pregnancies, wheni let it go completely. I'm going to give it another go though. I feel I need the control of a plan rather than the freedom of calorie counting alone.

I am pregnant at the moment but I will be going back to the old plan afterwards. I lost three stone with it. Could never get into pro points.

I got to goal on vintage ww but struggle more with pp.

I used to lose 4lb in each of my first 2 weeks on old points. On pp I'd lose a lb and a half.

I've jacked it in and will do mfp and cals instead. You can work out cals more easily and it's free. smile

This fell off my watch list way before anyone replied! Some interesting replies - a real mixed bag of experiences. I have started yet again (really committed this time) and am halfway through my second week. Compared with the first time around, I have found it much easier and feel I am able to eat more - it's also more flexible as I can save quite a lot of the weekly 49 if I do a couple of filling & healthy days.

During my first week on vintage points I was starving and lost 3.5lb. On the new plan I was mostly satisfied with what I could eat and I lost 2lb. I just hope the loss is sustainable. I don't mind losing 1lb or even 0.5lb a week as long as the plan is manageable. I don't want to suffer too much! Last time my loss was quite predictable - lose 3lb -ish one week, lost 1lb next week, stay the same next week then cycle starts again. A few times I lost 4lb in one week then gained 1lb the next week etc. It seems to come off me in big chunks followed by a 'consolidation' period - not sure how that will work with smaller losses though?? I don't much fancy 'lose 1lb, stay the same for 2 weeks' as a pattern... We'll see I guess.

Difficult to say..I did the vintage 10 years ago but I was 23 as opposed to 33! Also I never really counted the booze and I was a student so drank lots! whereas I barely drink now. Thinking about it, maybe my weight loss is a but slower but I'm sure I'm eating better because I snack on 0 PP fruit and veg!

I prefer the new system because I feel less limited. I used to eat all my points and still be hungry. Now if I am I can use my weekly/activity points and plenty of fruit and veg to fill me up so I'm better off.

Deep just before I quit they did 'Switch' where you could do PP or something similar to F&H. It relied on you eating 3 meals a day though and with the shifts I do, I often have 4 small meals a day so that didn't work for me.

Sounds like your idea of vintage WW is different to mine grin

When I first joined WW it was x portions of protein, x portions carb, x fat etc plus 100 daily calories for treats.

Yep I'm that old.

I'm talking circa 2004! I think when I started it was 'Time for you' then it switched to 'Switch'!

I think I last joined around 1904 [feeling old]
