I am so FRUSTRATED by the comments on the Jezebel page. I had exactly the same experience with WW - only the last time I did it, I lost 152 pounds, plateaued for another 2 years and then, after exercising all of the cartilege out of my knees, had double knee replacements at 45. I know you won't believe it - all of that weight came back. Now I'm fat again and disabled. Yay me! People are like sheep being led to the slaughter. The diet industry is destroying the health of this country and I think it's part of a larger conspiracy to hide what they've been doing to our food supply (growth hormones, chemicals, additives, changing things genetically). You can't tell me that there are normal chickens in this country with breasts the size of turkies. Those things are huge. They scare me. Sorry I'm rambling. The Jezebel comments really pissed me off!

Has Weight Watchers ever really worked long-term for anyone? My WW story is very much like yours---I'm 50 years old and have spent the last thirty years dieting my way up to 230 pounds. The lightbulb started to come on when I read "The End of Overeating" by David Kessler, but I have to admit that those old, deeply ingrained habits die hard, and I haven't been very successful.
