I'd also like to point out though, that the two aren't mutually exclusive. I do eat carbs in moderation, but I can also choose how much and what kind of carbs. Doesn't have to be just one or the other.

And ouchie... I'm not fully diabetic, but my mom was, and many of my aunts and uncles. I know how hard that can make it to lose weight. I actually veered the opposite direction... My blood sugar tends to be *too* low.

Oh, no, I agree. What I mean is that - for me - WW was just far, FAR too many calories. My metabolism works at a snail's pace (which is common for ppl with PCOS, iirc).

Something else I just thought of... I also have the mixed blessing of a surgically absent gallbladder. Thus, I can't digest most fat. It might very well be that WW would affect me the same way, but that I'm simply unable to absorb all of the calories because of that.

Who knows? To each their own. Awesome though that you persisted and found something that did work for you :)
