My wife and I joined back in early April. We attend local meetings, but utilize the online e-tools point tracking, weight tracking, activity tracking, and for their menu tools. We think it's great. The whole program works very well, but it would be much more of a pain in the proverbial keyster doing all that by hand. Plus the menu tools are not available anywhere else. They have a database of menus, plus they can take a menu of ours and tell us how many points are in it based on the ingredients and proportions. They also have a feature where you can type in three ingredients you have on hand and they'll suggest a dish. We love it. It's allowed each of us to relatively easily shed 35 pounds +/- over the past 17 or 18 weeks. I'd still attend meetings, though, if I were signing up. It's a good way to share in the enthusiasm and trade food tips with others.
