I have done both. I really like the "Free" feature of SP. The points are handy, though, when you are in a hurry for a meal.

I did well on WW, but it's expensive. I'm new to SP, but I like the SP website better and it's free, something really important for me on a one-income budget. So far what I've seen on SP seems to far outweigh paying for WW. I like calorie-counting better than points because it's what I'm used to (WW did the calorie counts back in the 80's and a friend taught me to do that while she was going). There are some impressive weight losses here, though, so the jury's still out for me! But I'm definately leaning toward SP!

I've done both-with WW it's nice because it's points and I really didn't have to think, but with Spark, I've had to work at planning more, but the support, even it it is virtual, is so much more comprehensive than WW... emoticon

SP. Way better website, FREE, and focused more on nutrition. I love the graphics and reports of your ratios and calorie burn.

Hi, I was on ww. I liked it but I always felt so alone. I love SP so far. Though I just started :P
By the way, I really admire all the weight loss goals that people are acheiving. I really hope Im as successful

I am a WW life member, but I always make sure my total points are "within a calorie range" so in a sense I do both. I like the concept of a live meeting with a live weigh in and I feel that is the main advantage that WW can give. If you are doing both online, than I am sure I would like SP better since there are more tools and good ways to connect) in my opinion.

I think it is a personal choice, I have done both, but honestly, I have had better luck here on Spark!

Both work; it really is a matter of personal choice and being true to oneself and following through with the program

Both. Sparkpeople is a great site. You can talk to people online. At WW you can learn to lose weight with friends you have at the meetings and can comingle with them in person. Try anything to help you to lose the weight.

Just left weight watchers online to join spark people. Spark people is my preference, free is good but the resources on spark people are much for valuable, weight watchers online really online has the points and exercise tracker, no health education, spark pages, points, blogs, recipes, etc. Spark people is much more motivating and exciting to me.

I have done both before. I am currently using both. I'm finding it much easier to stay within range, and to be where I need to be. I'm WW online, so I don't go to meetings, due to time limitations and work schedules.

emoticon BUT if other programs help you, with in person support or ideas or recipes, etc I say go for it. I will stress this is a lifestyle change and I credit SP for giving me that! Also, make sure you eat up to your in your range...that maybe why you are not losing as fast!
Best of luck!

The difference of the two is that Weight Watchers is a place where you can go to and meet people in a meeting. SP you can make friends online. I enjoy both. Use them both!

First off...I love SP....I was just wondering if others do WW instead of using the range system SP does. I have been losing weight with SP, but I think I was losing faster with WW point system...I stay in my ranges and if anything I am below so at times it can be frustrating...anyhow I was seeing what others thought...thanks
