I was googling for 2018 plan changes this morning. I have never felt that connect works for me as a resource the way the old boards worked. I really appreciated having a group of people who had similar challenges to mine. Connect seems like and endless feed of interesting, but totally unrelated thoughts rolling by.
I really like this board operating without WW police who poof any posts that list points values or other helpful information.
I followed somebody's bread crumbs. I don't participate, though, as much as I did on the old board. I am glad somebody took the initiative to create these for us, it was like we were all on the Titanic and barely had time to escape. Some of us made it here, some of us are still out at sea.
I have been an online and meeting member since the ship sank and the "boards" are not there - just pictures and people "following" people. I wasn't impressed. After I left WW, I lost about 20 pounds. Probably because I wasn't preoccupied with food and points and charting said food and points all the time.
The old message boards shut down I think around the time I was recovering from surgery so I didn't realize they were gone for awhile. I finally did notice but didn't even think about them being continued somewhere. Anyway, on my blog, I made a comment about missing them. One of my readers kindly left a comment with the link to the prior incarnation of these boards.
