Weight Watchers Online reviews can vary greatly, with many dieters appreciating the freedom the online format gives them, and others deciding that it simply isn’t the right method for them. However, for the new generation of Weight Watchers, the online format seems to be preferable, as it gives most of the benefits as the Weight Watchers Meetings format, but has a few other benefits as well.
One of the biggest benefits that people appreciate about the online program is that it is very convenient for those who are on the go. Online members can track PlusPoints on the iPhone App and check in on the website whenever it is convenient to do so. In one of the many Weight Watchers Online reviews, user “Mrs D” says:
“I looked at my schedule and decided I'd rather be training for that hour ever week versus sitting at a meeting. I weigh in every week, even when not perfect on tracking. I do track most of the time (thank you iPhone & WW app) and guess what - I tend to lose more when I track!”
However, while the online format may be more convenient for some, others may benefit more from the actual Weight Watchers Meetings program. In another of the Weight Watchers Online reviews on the same message board, the user says:
“I need the meetings. I need to be accountable to a human being - Not a computer. I need the companionship of people that are facing the same struggles I am.”
This accountability is one of the main lacks of the Online program. For many people the weekly weigh-ins and the support of the meetings group is one of the major motivations that they have for losing the weight and keeping it off. However, those using the Online program successfully point out that if a person can keep self-motivated, this should not be a problem and the flexibility and freedom that the online program gives is better suited to today’s generation of Weight Watchers who have to juggle their weight loss goals with the myriad of other important things they have to do on a daily and weekly basis.
