    its more like she ate 10% of Weight Watchers.

    It's kind of like Lindsay Lohan buying Alcohol Anonymous

    This is the biggest complaint I've heard - that it feels like a diet now. I switched from WW to MyFitnessPal about a year and a half ago. I've found that once I hit a "certain age" I have to be really vigilant about tracking otherwise things go off the rails pretty quickly.

    It is hard to feel sorry for Oprah not losing weight. She has access to everything. A personal chef, a personal trainer, the money to buy all the right foods and the free time to work out all damn day long.

    My sister works for Oprah as a TV producer and is impressed by her. She says Oprah is very intelligent, works extremely hard and expects her employees to put in as much effort as she does.. Oprah doesn't have the time to work out all day long because she is constantly working. If you look at recent photos of her, she is noticeably thinner so Weight Watchers apparently does work for her.

    ^^ I agree so hard with this. It sends the wrong message. I think Weight Watchers is good because you're eating real food that you've prepared or you're learning how to eat well in the real world - but don't talk about the foods you really love until you apply portion control for quite a while. I had friends that lost 50 lbs and 100 lbs with just changing their eating. It took time and devotion. It's very hard work. Don't say here's your bread and cheese. Yes, one tablespoon's worth. My message to Oprah is to send the message that you're not giving up the delicious things you love for always, you're replacing them with a lifetime of nutrition packed meals - and then have a piece of bread or a chocolate dipped strawberry with a little creme fraiche. A little.

    Angeli - tell your sister about my message to Oprah, I wonder what Oprah would say.

    My sister is a nutritionist for Weight Watchers and is a regional director. (Great job for a SAHM as most of it can be done during school hours onsite or home) A few of her sites were involved in the piloting of the new system and it went over well when used with the new personal coaching support they're offering.

    The new plan finally includes sugar content in calculating points, which none of the previous points plan did. The more protein in a food, the lower the points value. Increase the sugar, increase the points value. For instance, a 16 ounce Starbucks Chai Lattee has around 200 calories but 42 grams of sugar giving it a very high points value of 16 as opposed to previously being 7 points under Points Plus.

    ^^^^^Thank you! I used to know this heifer that had money, fabulous job, access to whatever she needed to lose weight and she was always playing the "Poor me. I'm fat. Feel sorry for me. Waa Waa" I called her out on it. Basically told her the same thing you posted up there.

    Chalet, I agree with you about the message she is projecting. But I also think the reason a lot of people resist dieting (or fail at dieting) is because they think, "But I can't give up bread/pasta/fried chicken/ice cream/cake/chocolate/enchiladadas/whatever" when they are used to eating it regularly or using it to reward themselves.
