    Default Weight Watcher Stock falling

    Hello, I am back to WW after a bout with the big C. I have been on youtube a lot watching success stories. I found a couple videos that was talking about weight watcher stocks going down like some crazy number like 30%. What do you all think is the cause of this? Anyone have any theories?

    It has a lot to do with all of the free apps people are buying. In any case I still think it's the best program out there and will be loyal forever.

    I love the program, but I feel some changes lately. The WW magazine, that used to be very good, is terrible lately. I used to read the editorial by CEO, very inspiring, but gone.... Nothing really to justify the cost of the magazine. The web site is getting worse all the time. You have to sign in on the computer every time you log in, and you have to do it, if you want to have the full content. I Phone and Ipad app has only limited information, good for simple tracking but not for more complicated things. I'm not informes, but it seems to me, like they have been some changes in the company, and they are not fo r the better, so I'm not surprised the stock is falling.

    I am free, not at my personal goal, but WW goal. I use the tracker on the phone all the time, its a second nature for me. I love the program and want it to continue improving.

    Well then you're making the program work for you. How bad can that be. I hope they get their electronics sorted out and I never want to lose my e tools.

    It is because of my fitness pal and fitbit. They have free trackers. I personally like the points system compared to counting calories welcome back!

    I hope they get everything turned around. Right now I am doing it on my own. It makes me kind of want to join and buy a new set of books though, just in case they go under. :-(

    I too used the point system years ago, it was a pain but it worked, made one very aware of portion sizes. Its amazing when one thinks what a serving size is and then when one measures it, it ends up being more then what you thought.

    I believe it is a service based company that is trying to morf into an IT company, and doing a really poor job of it. They should just buy someone else's third party application and use it, because if their CIO and his team has not fixed that in three years they will be doomed.
