Have to say I am a lil over the ww forums. MY unlimited finishes on 16th april...at that point i need to figure out how i am going to track after that. I could simply do it in my lil journals...its free after all...or i could pay $30 per month for etools...my issue with this? Honestly i think ww should supply more....the etools layout has its issues...i dont like the layout (ive used the biggest loser club in the past and their layout is awesome)...so for my $30 or however much it is...i get etools...plus the forums...the forums which has bitching, non ww related topics and people shoving their opinions down your throat. MY thought is dont fix what aint broke...but the forums off and on piss me off...the last week they have been worse...if i resorted to calorie counting (lets face it whether its points or calories its all the same damn thing) i could use sparkpeople....it is free...i did look around it today....but it seems confusin as chit....then there is the biggest loser club...counts calories...the diary format is good...but what i recall there was not much existance of the forums.....the last option (OF COURSE) is jillians site,,,,$4 US dollars per week...it has a lot of things i like...she blogs and runs challenges...she has playlists she releases each month,,,workout plans...tracking for ur calories...and forums...im really undecided. Im really over those ww forums tho and anyone whose been there in the last week or so knows what i am talking about...

Apart from that....im still home with this migraine...i rang work dan was like id prefer u stay home and relax and get over it properly and who am i to oppose that? In all honesty its what i call the tail end of the migraine...i have in the past had the migraine mostly go...ive returned to work and within 24 hours the migraine has come back worse (Tania may recall this with me telling her to pull over so i can throw up from a migraine lol) so i prolly am being a lil more cautious. Tomorrow nite i will be at the gym...I will prolly do the body balance class...i need to get going to the gym and back into everything...

And OMFG @ who they sent home on biggest loser last nite !!! what a bunch of idiots....

Hi Kazz,

I don't think you have to be an online member to use the forums - I'm not, I just created an ID and went for it!

I know what you mean about the forums - I keep an eye on them, but rarely post. I get much more motivation from the bloggers - we seem to be a more reflective bunch!

Kazz - the forums totally got to me in the end. I don't even bother going through and checking them anymore ... for all the reasons you've laid out.

Like you, I've toyed with other formats for counting calories/pts and am still looking for the perfect one :-)

Hope you're doing well.

Love Nat

Have you thought about using calorieking.com.au ? The online forums are very active as well, it is free to use the online version, if you want I think you can download a desktop version for a one of fee (I used to have on my old computer) but the website works good enough, ppl blog from there too, has a uptodate food database, all the aussie foods.

I had the same issues with the WW site too in past, also when I used a year and a bit ago, it took forever to load, so I got annoyed :| Good luck!

Kazz, what works best for you with the tracking? Is it just recording your foods? If so how about setting up your own spreadsheet and continue to count the points that you know so well anyway - it's what I did. I've moved away from tracking, opting instead to do an idea Tina gave me quite a while ago to do a planner for a week in advance. That way i'm still "tracking" but in advance and not recording everything every day.

LOL @ pulling over in the car - i'd forgotten about that!

As to the forums - can't say i've ever frequented them, the best thing i've found about them is the people i've met that i've been able to follow on facebook and through their blogs! Sounds like i'm not missing out on much.
