I'm a longtime WW member/rejoiner attending meetings in Paris. I went back to meetings this week and discovered WW had completely revamped their program. Points are calculated in a completely different way, and no longer called points, but ProPoints. They gave back the weekly extra points (our French program had discontinued these years ago) and call them OptionPlus points.
Has the program changed in other countries? How do you deal with the change? Do you stay on the old program (tempting to me, since all my WW cookbooks and products list the old points values) or take on the new one? (I am reluctant to relearn a whole new system).
The end result of course is still the same...I'm sure under this new system the total calories you get to eat remain the same...it's just a new way to translate calories into points values.
It is very clever of WW to do something like this from a marketing standpoint. Sure, we think it's cool to have a new program...but it also obliges us to buy new cookbooks, tools, etc. From an investment viewpoint, I'm not happy about that at all.
