<quoted text>How do you know she'a not doing on her own using the WW point system?
Maybe she is, but their point system is a bit complicated. You either need access to their point calculator (where you enter calories, fat, etc.) or you need to ballpark, which may not be accurate. No point in doing it with the WW point system by ball barking anyway when you can simply count calories on your own for free.

Besides, WW point system is frustrating as he11. I know they have changed it somewhat since I quit about 4 years ago, but from what I hear from a colleague, it's still the case that eating a plain home-made turkey sandwich without any condiments can cost you about &#8531; of your daily point allowance.

By the way, since I quit WW and simply changed the way I eat and started to exercise more, I've lost 60lb. My colleague is still the same weight she was when she decided to go on WW, but it's yo-yo'd back and forth by about 10lb over the years. Whenever we have any work events that have some food (e.g. beginning-of-term planning meetings that are scheduled for 3-4 hours) or when somebody brings snacks for the office, she always says, "Oh, I wish I could have a cookie, but it will be 4 points! " and (to me) "How can you eat cookies and still not gain weight back?" I used to say the same things all the time when I was on WW. It's like food and points take over your mind. I'd rather not do it.
