Hello, is this an active group? Just checking to see if I'm missing recent posts. I ask because I just joined ww (again) and while googling ww and diabetics I came across this site.
I see a lot of benefits to ww but wondering how others are working with the tracking ...are you tracking carbs on your own? Would love some feedback on how you've made ww work for you ....thanks.

Rejoined WW after a 2 year absence. It has helped me get better control of my BS numbers and feel better in general. Not a carb counter, but I can tell that I am consuming way less than I used to.

Hello fellow Weight Watchers friends. I was thinking that it would be really nice if WW would provide a total carb count for each meal in their apps, so that we wouldn't have to track twice. If we could get enough people to suggest this, maybe we could convince them. If you also feel strongly about this, please send them an email.

I am a WW member, but am not working the program.... I AM working on getting my BS under control... and that usually causes me to gain weight. Any suggestion on how to navigate WW and Diabetes at the same time?

Amanda, so did I but don't give up completely. If you're on the WW website they have alot of support groups you can post questions and comments and articles you can read to stay on track. Don't beat yourself up about it because it's natural for that to happen just stay focused!

I fell off the WW bandwagon this week and I need to jump back on! Advice?
Comment by alwaysacanuck on September 20, 2011 at 12:01pm
Amanda, I agree with how it keeps your BG levels in good control......

Just joined WW for the second time 2 weeks ago. I have already lost four lbs. I am more amazed about how great my BG levels have been with WW than anything else. I think WW is great for diabetics because it forces you to count!

I just started WW again this week and have not done so great...went over my weekly points a bit with girls night last night! But I definitely think it helps me pay more attention to my food intake and I get the carb counts straight from the website. How are you guys doing??
