New Weight Watchers plan coming for November 2022!

Read on for all the latest news on the new WW plan that is due to roll out sometime in November.

*Update- November 14th, 2022. The new WW program has rolled out in the U.S today. If you are not seeing the update yet in your App then wait a bit and try again. Remember everyone is trying to update at the same time so it can get a bit backed up. For my fellow Canadians, there is no exact date yet for when our Apps will update. I would think based on previous years and updates that it will be soon, maybe later this week or next week.

*Disclaimer- I am not affiliated with Weight Watchers in any way, all information in this post I was able to find on the internet.

Ok, Ok.. I know! Many of you might be yelling at your screens right now, just don’t yell at me ha-ha, I’m simply the messenger. There has been a lot of talk this last week about the new Weight Watchers plan coming next month.  It is no secret that typically every 2-3 years they like to make changes to their program. Sometimes the change is big and sometimes it is just a slight tweak on the current plan.

It was only last year, November 2021 that the Personal Points program rolled out. It is not normal for WW to change up its program so soon.  I’m going to take a guess that the personal points program was not as successful as they were hoping it would be.

Is a new plan coming to Weight Watchers in November 2022?

Yes, it is not just a rumor you might be hearing. Weight Watchers are indeed rolling out a new program very soon. There is no word yet on what the name of the new program will be but I am sure we will learn this soon.

I am no stranger to WW changes, I have been a lifetime member for over 25 years!  I’ve lost count of how many different programs I have seen come and go. I always try to navigate the new programs into my lifestyle but sometimes they are not a good fit for me and that is ok. Honestly, I have not been in love with any of the programs since we lost points plus. I have tried them all, I always do, but most of my success came from the beloved points plus program.

After points plus came Smart points, beyond the scale. Then we had WW freestyle, which turned into MyWW plan and gave us the colored blue, green and purple programs. The last change to come was WW personal points, which had us all pretty much doing our own program. This last program is where I kinda jumped off the WW train, I started tracking my calories instead. I feel that the sense of community was lost not only with the personal point program but even before that with the MyWW plan. I also was not a fan of the whole earning points for eating certain foods or drinking water.

When I was an avid meeting member and went weekly, I thrived during the meetings and loved the community feel. It just made sense that everyone was on the same program and talking about our journeys together was easy. When people start following different programs it was hard to grasp who was doing what.

What will the new Weight Watchers plan be?

  • The new plan will be the same for everyone (unless you are diabetic)
  • Members will have the same zero-point foods which will include non-starchy vegetables, fruits, lean poultry and fish, tofu,  non-fat cottage cheese, plain non-fat greek yogurt, eggs, beans, lentils, corn, peas, and a new addition of air-popped plain popcorn.
  • Daily point allowances will depend on a number of things like age, sex, current weight, and height.
  • Members will have a daily point allowance and a weekly point allowance.
  • While members can still earn points for activities, there will be no more points given for water and/or eating certain food such as vegetables.
  • There will be a plan for diabetic members, it will look similar to the regular plan with a focus on eating fewer carbohydrates and sugars.
  • The algorithm for calculating points will be the same.

*Again, please note this is information I was able to find online, I can not confirm if it is true but many sources lead me to believe it is the correct information.

Can I still follow the Personal Points program?

Weight Watchers will do away with the personal points program once the new program rolls out. If you prefer to stick to this program or maybe you still enjoy one of the older WW programs there are many free Apps out there that you can download and follow these programs on. A few of my favorites are

The WW app will only work for the current program available.

So is this new program basically the old WW Freestyle or the “blue” program?

Want my honest answer? Yes, in a nutshell, lol! But WW won’t admit that, they will put all this focus on a brand new revised program meanwhile we are all scratching our heads thinking, “wait a minute, I’ve been here before!”

That being said, I think this is a well-needed change. Personal points in my opinion was just one big mess, yes just messy! Other food bloggers that list WW points can relate with me on this one but it was so hard to post a recipe with the point value. Everyone had different points based on the zero foods they had selected. As a food blogger we enjoy helping members and listing the point value right there in the recipe to make it easy to track. This was pretty much impossible and I just started listing point ranges for recipes. It makes more sense for a recipe to be “x” amount of points for EVERYONE!

What can I eat on this new Weight Watchers plan?

Short answer, exactly what you have been eating and enjoying. While the zero-point foods are changing and some foods for some members won’t be zero points anymore I think ultimately you won’t notice a big difference in the things you are eating. If you can’t work the plan into your everyday life and around the foods you enjoy eating then you should not be doing the plan. We should never have to make drastic changes to the foods we love, it is always about balance and moderation.

Spicy chicken chili

Thinking back to the old Freestyle program got me thinking about some of my favorite “freestyle” friendly recipes like my Spicy chicken chili, zero points on the old freestyle so this should be a 0PP recipe with the new program. Some other favorite simple and delicious recipes that were “freestyle” friendly are

New weight watchers plan, Pumpkin cream cheese muffin recipe

If you like to bake I have so many delicious recipes that are low in points, like my delicious pumpkin spice cream cheese muffins or  pumpkin banana greek yogurt muffins  These muffins are just 2PP on the old freestyle program so I expect them to stay the same on the new program. Here’s a list of some of my favorite baking recipes that I expect will stay low in points once the new program is available.

Will you update all your recipes to reflect the new program?

I feel there won’t be too much to do here, I currently still list the old “MyWW” points on most of my recipes (think blue, green & purple programs). Since it seems that the new program will be very similar to the blue program I’m guessing the points will already be there in my recipes. I’ll just have to go in and do a little updating so there is no confusion on the points listed.

Overall thoughts on the changes?

Bring it on!! As I already mentioned I tapped out when personal points rolled out last year. I was already halfway there with the MyWW plan with different colors so it just pushed me over the edge. I am all for getting back to everyone being on the same program. We need this to get back that community feel again, I think WW veered off the road a bit too much with the last few programs and I am happy they seem to be getting back to their lane!

I know with program changes come all kinds of emotions and many may be feeling frustrated, I get it! I’m a firm believer in trying everything once, feel it out and see if you can make it work for you before throwing in the towel. Please know I am always here to help and offer support in any way I can so don’t hesitate to reach out.

      I am lifetime member of WW. I dont like the workshop part.Ho back to way meetings were years ago..You learn so much and enjoy being there. Don’t like the instructor constantly walking to one ene to room to other while talking to the group.

        • Drizzle Reply

          I did share a few free Apps that you can use in this post, they offer the older WW programs, they are just called a slightly different name

    • Thanks for a great summary!! Your recipes have helped me tremendously to stay on plan!!! They taste delicious and I can adjust them as needed. I think this “new” plan will be just fine 🙂

      • Drizzle Reply

        Hi Linda, I am so glad you are enjoying the recipes, and yes I agree, I think the new plan will be a great one!

    • I’m glad to hear this! With the last iteration
      s, I kind of dropped out (13 year life member), and I miss both the community and the structure. Hope to reconnect!

      • Sylvia Brazell Reply

        So happy to find your blog…and as others have stated, you hit everything accurately! My opinion, and we are back to meetings, get rid of”workshops”! Connotation is we’re going to work! Meetings says we’re having an interesting, fun time with friends, which we are!!! Glad they’re returning to what works best for most people!!!

        • Drizzle Reply

          Meetings helped me so much when I was doing my best on the program, it is a nice way to connect with others on the same journey! Good luck to you Sylvia with the new program 🙂

    • I seriously just quit WW, Weight Watchers, whatever it’s called now. Oct 19th was my last day. I was beyond frustrated and getting nowhere, all the while giving away my hard earned money. Open back up the neighborhood studios along with this “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” plan and I’ll be back.

        • I told fellow WW goers the same exact things you said here. It made no sense whatsoever to hold a meeting with attendees doing different plans. I gained nothing and stopped attending. Having one plan gives you the community and commrodery we love and need, the ability to actually apply the feedback someone is receiving to your own journey, etc. because you’re on the same plan. I’ve been a member since 2007. I returned to Points Plus when they rolled out the new (3) plans last year. I found it so confusing, was worried I’d answer the questions wrong where they suggest the plan for you and has ZERO interest trying all 3 plans to figure out which is the best plan for me. I’ve been so disappointed with WW’s. A brand I used to be able to trust.

          • Drizzle

            Hi Mary Anne, I agree 100% with you, but it seems like WW finally listened so hopefully good things are to come 🙂

        • Beverly McCarthy Reply

          So hear we’re going back to basics! Quit WW with these new personal points!..So confusing..Also, I hope they do away with all of the product advertising at the meetings. I don’t spend my hard earned money to sit through commercials for products or new utensils, pots, pans, water bottles, etc, especially at those prices. Let me hear what works, how to curb cravings and what foods are the healthiest for me. Thanks…Can’t wait to try the new program.

          • Drizzle

            Good luck to you on the new program Beverly 🙂

    • Carl Leatherman Jr Reply

      I hated freestyle and never lost with any consistency on it or the blue plan. I’m considering offboarding after 10 years. Too much messing with the plan. Bring back smart points.

      • Drizzle Reply

        Yes I agree, it’s frustrating that they keep changing the plans

  2. Chris Cavaness Reply

    I’m SO ready for the “new” program!
    Personal Points just wasn’t working for me.
    BRING IT ON!

          • Joan McGilvery

            Thank you Drizzle for all of your Wonderful Information. I dropped out of WW October 18 due to the fact the App was horrible. My Steps came from my Apple Health app but the personal points never ever recorded it correctly. I spent 18 hours on the phone with WW with zero help. Also I did lose 17 lbs since June but when I had my annual physical my A1C which was always normal came back Pre diabetic!!! I was ordering all WW snacks and staying within my points yes I lost weight but my health was going in wrong direction. The WW food that you could buy in supermarkets was much healthier the breads the small snacks carrot cakes 1 point small lemon cakes 1 point. I also don’t like the workshops at all at one point we were suppose to buy a book and discuss it with a Coach. Who has time for that? Thank you for taking the time to read this. A lot of money for digital $44 a month and an app that doesn’t work correctly and I posted this on WW and immediately had many responses from members who were having the same problem and WW did s not address and the snacks tasted horrible. I look forward to trying your recipes and they look fabulous. Many thanks sorry about the long comments but I wanted to be truthful. Al the Best!

          • Drizzle

            Hi Joan, I hear your frustrations, they are all very valid! I hope you find some recipes you enjoy 🙂

      • Janice Blattenberger Reply

        I did well on the blue plan, not so much on this current plan

          • Georgina

            I was successful on Points Plus and have been struggling ever since. None of the new plans are as good as that one. Add to that no local meetings anymore and it’s a disaster.

          • Drizzle

            I hear you! Points plus was my favorite plan and yes meetings help so much!

        • I did so well on the Green plan, no idea why they had to change things. So frustrating. I’m cancelling my membership today, the new “change” isn’t that different than the one before, which is horrible!

          • Drizzle

            I hear your frustrations Sarah, I think the new change is better than personal points with everyone being on the same program but it still is not my favorite! Good luck to you, maybe one of the WW changes in the future will work better for you 🙂

    • SO happy they are changing!!! Personal points was not working!! Might be coming back!!

      • Drizzle Reply

        I hope you give the program a chance and it works out for you Sue 🙂

    • Thank you! II love the simple, no nonsense way you presented the program. You really should have work for WW. You would be a great coach! I too am a lifetime member and could not understand all the fuss I was seeing from people worrying about change. I have been through more programs than I can remember and figure they are really pretty similar just different ways of counting what you eat. I always look forward to seeing the new program each time. I get too much in a routine and need to look at things more closely. It helps me to be more aware. I do miss meetings or workshop or whatever they call them now. The one in our area closed and the nearest one is 40 miles away. All the best to everyone. We can do this!

      • Drizzle Reply

        Thanks Jean, I appreciate your kind words 🙂 I hate that they closed so many meeting locations, they really are a huge factor in many members’ journeys!

  3. Can’t wait. I did really well before the change last year. Lost 33 pounds during the pandemic. Then went from 30 points down to 21. Hard time staying on points without going over. Pretty much hungry a lot. Many days over eating and hard to stay on track even if eating eggs and or chicken every day. Gained 8 pounds. Looking forward to something new. Realistically you could go the whole day just eating “free” foods which didn’t make sense to me at all.

    • Drizzle Reply

      I hope the new program works well for you Karen 🙂

    • So happy to hear they are moving away from personal points. I was doing so good for 2 years on the blue plan…and then personal points was so messy so I stopped tracking. I ended up leaving WW.

      • Drizzle Reply

        I hear you, I agree it was a messy program! Here’s hoping the new one is good 🙂

  4. Lynda Auld Reply

    I can’t wait to go back to the blue program. I gained back more then 1/2 the weight I lost when they started thee we new plan. Hope this sad easy as it was in the beginning

  5. Joanna Rand Reply

    I agree with you that the most recent Personal
    Points plan was a mess. I have been a member of Weight Watchers off and on since 1975 and this newest plan was just too complicated for me to follow. I felt that there were too many options and isn’t this how we ended up with weight issues in the first place. Having fought weight issues my entire life I realized that I had to learn all about nutrition and found this new program went against mynutrition education so I had to go with my common sense. I knew that too many potatoes or too much avocado with was not good for me as it was too heavy in calories. We all have to learn what are Achilles heel is with eating so you can’t let people with weight issues think they can get away with eating too much of one particular food. How do you think thin people stay thin. They do eat a variety of foods but they never eat too much of one food. A weight loss program should be teaching you discipline. I have to say that when I first started weight watchers the original plan was the best for me because I felt like I was actually working towards something. It was very regimented but it helped me to lose a few pounds quickly which was that psychological boost that I needed to keep me on the program. You still had a lot of options and learned how to create meals that worked for you rather than following some complicated recipe. My biggest issue with a lot of the recipes are the purchasing of an item that you may only use once every so many months…it was getting expensive. Looking forward to this change and will He joined so I can have the app experience, which hopefully this time will be less complicated.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Good luck to you Joanna on this new program! You got this!

    • I’m with you on the points plus plan. That’s where I lost my weight also, but it has found me again on these later plans. I tried with them, I really did, but just couldn’t get them to work for me. I will try this new one, hopefully I can get back on board.

      • Drizzle Reply

        That is awesome you are willing to give the new one a try, good luck to you! 🙂

    • So glad to hear your comments
      Latest program was hard to accept and changes were difficult to maintain.
      Loved your plan to go back to chicken, fish and tofu, beans, lentils veggies and fruit. Also popcorn. I’ve been on WW 5 years, lost 40 pounds. Maintained eating exactly what you are planning to do, and trying to work with the latest program. Attend weekly meetings as a priority for myself. My workshops have always been a team working to help each other.

      • Drizzle Reply

        Way to go on the weight loss Evelyn, that is fantastic!!

  6. Thank you for the info. I agree with you 100%! We plan on making one of your recipes today.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Maggie, yay, I hope you enjoy whatever it is you are making 🙂

    • I just started WW in August, so this is the only program I know, and it’s been very successful for me. My goal was to lose 17 pounds, and I’m currently down 13. I’m considering losing an additional five. I’ve added numerous recipes of things that I like to make. Do you know if these will update their points value automatically when the program changes?

      • Drizzle Reply

        Hi Deb, congrats on the weight loss, that is fantastic! Yes typically when there is a program change, once the App updates it will update your saved recipes to reflect the new program

    • Valorous Johnson Reply

      I can’t wait for the new program. I pretty much gain all my weight back except 5 pounds and it’s been a struggle

      • Drizzle Reply

        You got this!! Goos luck to you on the new program 🙂

  7. I really enjoy the personal points program but I am excited to see what’s coming/changing. Thanks for sharing the inside scoop!

    • I couldn’t agree more. I lost weight on Blue and have kept it all off. When I try to follow the current plan I lose interest because I feel like it’s a game I can’t win at. I change my preferences constantly and getting 2 extra points for eating my dinner salad and drinking water is too controlling. It’s like my mother is telling me what to eat.

      • Drizzle Reply

        Haha, yes!! Eat your veggies or no dessert! Good luck on the new plan Karen 🙂

  8. I am sad that there will no longer be personal coaching. This is a game changer for me, I am not sure I will try the new program

    • Drizzle Reply

      Personal coaching can definitely help but I imagine it is hard for them to maintain.

      • So glad I saw this. I was just about to cancel my WW membership. My husband & I just couldn’t seem to make the personal points plan work for the both of us. Willing to give this one a try. Thank you so much for your great recipes. I’m a big fan of the bubble ups!

        • Drizzle Reply

          Thanks Lainey, I’m happy to hear you are enjoying the bubble ups and I hope the new changes work well for you and your husband!

  9. Ghislaine Walgren Reply

    This makes me so happy, I’ve had a really hard time on this pp plan, I am not a fan, so I’m super stoked for this change!!!

  10. Mary Malewicki Reply

    Your input about WW and it’s various programs
    Was very enlightening. I personally thrived on the last program. Cutting my personal points was what helped me drop weight that wouldn’t budge. I still have weight to loose, so I plan to embrace the program again and hope for success!!!

    • Drizzle Reply

      I am so happy to hear you will embrace it even though PP worked for you, great attitude 🙂

  11. I’m over the moon for the new change coming! The personal points plan hasn’t helped me lose anything and I’ve following it to a t. On blue the weight just fell off.

  12. Mary Ann Clairmont Reply

    Thanks for sharing. At the virtual WW meeting this morning the coach mentioned there were rumours about a new plan but that was all she was allowed to share. I like you was not a fan of the current plan so I am looking forward to seeing the new one

    • Drizzle Reply

      Yes I think it is more being talked about in the U.S right now and Canada always follows suit, although I am not sure where you are located. Coaches are not supposed to let on that they know any information.. all the information I found was available on the internet to those that did leak it. The internet has no secrets haha!

  13. Gloria NORRIS Reply

    Thank you for the heads up. I had no idea that we were changing and I will be looking for it daily. Hoping it’s sooner and not later. I reached my goal in December 2020. The blue plan was perfect for me, and then this new plan came out and in the past year I gained 15 pounds struggling to follow some thing often not knowing what to do with it. I look forward to this more than words can express. I’m 72 years old. And yes I want to look nice, right now I just want to fit back into all the clothes comfortably, but more than that it’s a health issue for me to eat right and take care of my body even though I’ve tried to walk my mile every day and sometimes up to three. It wasn’t keeping my weight down. I feel very positive and I just can’t wait to get started , thank you again for letting us know of the good things to come.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Gloria, I love that you are still taking care of you, that is so important!! Good luck to you on this new plan, you got this!

  14. Albritton Donna Reply

    How will find out what our new daily points will be. I am currently on the plan

    • Drizzle Reply

      All information will be disclosed once the new plan rolls out, I’m guessing it will be based on things like age, sex, weight and height that you will input into your app

  15. So excited about the new plan and rushed to your blog for more details. Like you, WW has been a big part of my life for years (‘70’s). Once a decade, I would join the current plan, lose the weight and quit, but I successfully maintained for ~10 years then I would return. Some of the plans (like PointsPlus) were fabulous, but I struggled with others (i.e., SmartPoints). In 2019 on Blue, I lost 72 pounds in 9 months and felt better than I had in years. My biggest inspiration was watching WW Vloggers (like you) for recipes, laughs, and camaraderie. WW rolled out PP+ at the worst time possible – COVID isolation, IRL meeting sites shut down, and our YouTube vloggers giving up. Like with all new plans, some will leave, but I believe that getting the COMMUNITY back is more important. I can’t wait to get started and see more of your great tips and recipes.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Clair, I couldn’t agree more, personal points during covid was the worse decision, we were all already feeling alone! Here’s hoping the new plan works for us all.. and way to go you losing 72lbs in 9 months!!!!

  16. Points Plus was my favorite too! And I was able to maintain with simply filling. I struggled when they started to calculate points differently with SmartPoints. Not sure how successful I’ll be with the “new” program but I’m willing to try!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Patty, I am so happy that you are open to trying, here’s hoping it is a great program 🙂

  17. If this is true, i will be quitting. I realize I’m in the minority, but I did not do well with a lot of “zero point” foods. Only when I adjusted to only having eggs as a zero point food (plus vegetables) could I keep to the plan. Back to just counting calories, which isn’t as healthy.

    • Drizzle Reply

      I understand, every program is not for everyone, but hopefully you can make it work, there still might be things about the program that I have not learned yet and might make it easier for you

  18. I guess I’m weird, but I love the personal points program. I have lost 56 pounds, and have found it very easy. Oh, well. We shall see what the new one has in store.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Way to go Pam, that is fantastic.. I’m sure you will be able to work the new program 🙂

  19. I just join weight watchers this year I actually like the program but I didn’t like to cook or plan meals so I had a hard time putting in all the items in also
    I needed a more simple plan or something?

    • Drizzle Reply

      I don’t think the changes are drastic enough that you will find it difficult to make the changes, cooking and planning can be hard especially when we have busy schedules.

  20. Rebecca Lyons Reply

    I totally missed the sense of community and having bloggers be able to post points. I finally found the way to work the PP plan for me, but I did well on Blue before. I may try the diabetic plan even though I’m not diabetic. I can easily overdo legumes.

    • Drizzle Reply

      That is awesome you may explore, I always say do what works for you 🙂

  21. Nicole Schwarz Reply

    I didn’t see chicken or eggs on tour list. Any idea if they will still be on there?

    Thanks for all of your amazing recipes. My family loves them.

    • Drizzle Reply

      they are in the list, lean poultry and eggs are both there 🙂

  22. I am definitely in the minority here, but I really like Personal Points. I have been a lifetime member since 1994 always hovering a little too close to my goal weight until menopause and was a few pounds over. I couldn’t lose weight with ANY of the WW iterations until the new plan was introduced last November. I was able to lose 15 pounds. What bums me is that I chose very few zero-point foods, and it looks like a couple of the ones I have will not be zero anymore….. oatmeal and avocado. But of course, I will make the change because I am nothing if not loyal! 🙂

    • Drizzle Reply

      Ha I love that! I am all for trying out every program and seeing if you can make it work for you, also congrats on the weight loss, that’s awesome!

  23. In the late 1980’s WW had a ‘Quick Start’ program with a booklet that I loved. I did it for 1 week to get me going with quick loss. I wish I had saved the booklet. Do you have it – scanned version to share with us.
    Much appreciated.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Meg, no unfortunately I do not have any information on that program, have you tried doing a google search for it?

  24. Adriana Quintero Reply

    Personally, I liked the old program from 6-7 years back, I lost about 40 pounds with it. Then they changed it a few times since then and I have not had as much success as before because 24 points a day is pretty much nothing and I always exceed my daily allowance and I am hungry and cranky most of the time. By the way thank you for the free apps that you posted, I will check them out. I hope this “new” WW works for everyone.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Sounds like me, 6-7 years ago would have been points plus and that is the program I lost all my weight on, have not liked any as much since but eager for the change and to try it out 🙂 Good luck to you!

  25. I quit WW when it was the blue plan only as I lost very little weight. I did better on green. I adjusted my personal point choices to reflect the green program and achieved goal weight. Now I am concerned about regaining weight because a lot of the foods that I eat are “free”. I thought the program was based on accountablity. You can easily eat only free food and gain!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Yeah there is a part of me that wishes we could go back to only having fruits/vegetables as zero-point foods. Here’s hoping the changes are positive and we can all make it work 🙂

  26. mrs susan k woodberry Reply

    I am now woried have been doing quite well usually the least loss being 1lb week
    Didnt do so well on the blue plan and being diabetic 2 wonder how it will alter f you have any ideas on types of food in new diabetic plane woould love to know,

    • Drizzle Reply

      I have not heard too much around the diabetic plan but I’m sure more news will come out soon.. Don’t stress oo much though I am sure you will find your way around the new plan 🙂

  27. Nancy Cramer Reply

    I’m excited to learn about the new plan! I’ve done Weightwatchers for years and made lifetime, but after 2 knee replacements gained the weight back. I continued to follow the program, but this last one I ended up with 14 daily points! It was very hard to maintain, even though I was eating zero-point foods! But the foods I ate were good, healthy foods! A bit frustrating to say the least! I tried to get my veggies and water in so I could get a couple more daily points! I’ll be happy to get back to something more normal with reasonable daily points!

      Knee replacements are no joke, my mum has had 2! Hope you are doing well 🙂 and yes I think the new program will be a welcoming change for many!

  28. Yes! We just joined last month (after 6 years) and it’s certainly been a struggle. I can REALLY have as much chicken and potatoes as I want? That just doesn’t seem right AT ALL. What recipes USED to work for me years ago, now take up 1/2 my daily points. Struggle bus here! Looking forward to the new program; thanks for the scoop!

    I totally agree! I wish we we go back to Points Plus. I was even successful on SmartPoints. WW lost me with Freestyle and the new programs. But, I will give the new one a try. I was using Healthy but it’s just not the same as the WW app.

      I hear you, I do love my WW app and I am very partial to it lol.. here’s hoping the new plan is a good change!

    So excited for a new program! I have not been successful on the current program but was feeling it was me not the program! However after reading through the comments perhaps the program itself played a part!

      Sometimes the programs just don’t fit our lifestyle, here’s hoping you enjoy the new changes 🙂

    I was new to WW with the blue, green, and purple program. I chose purple and lost 60 pounds in one year. Since they changed to the current program I am up one down one and getting nowhere. So I’m excited for a change! Thank you!

      That is awesome Patti, way to go on the 60-pound loss!! Sounds like a change is just what you need 🙂

    As a former leader and Regional Manager, I too did not like the last plan. In fact I just quit WW five days ago. I’ve been a lifetime member for 38 years and I’ve gained 40 pounds since. I’ve never been a fan of points as I lost my weight when we had to fulfil our daily Canada Food Guide limits. Each week we were “given back” certain foods ie. week 3 we got peanut butter ……..oh what a thrill that was! Lol. I’m anxious to try this new plan.

      Haha I remember that plan, was it where we were allowed so many breads, so many dairy items etc? I recall doing ok on that plan but my best success came from points plus

        I hate the current program. It’s too much bother to change points on all my old recipes and to add and subtract points. 16 points was psychologically very low. I gave up and have gained 15 pounds. I can’t wait to go back to the “old” program. I will also start back to meetings. I need the support. I originally lost 70 pounds and want to get back in control.

        • Drizzle Reply

          Good luck with the new program Jean, I am excited for it to start!

  33. Good news! I lost my weight back in 2019 and was keeping it off using the Blue plan. Personal Points was not working for me. I, too, began tracking calories and macros. I’m hoping to be rejuvenated by WW when the new program becomes official! Love the recipes I’ve tried here! Thanks!

      Hi Linda, I am so glad you are enjoying the recipes 🙂 Good luck to you on the new plan!

  34. I AGREE WITH YOUR OPINION I COULDNT HAVE SAID IT BETTER. IM A LIFE TIME WW FOR 12 YEARS . I TOO JUST STOPPED TRACKING PP AND WENT BACK TO MY BLUE PLAN. I ALSO STOPPED ATTENDING THE MEETINGS JUST WEIGH IN AND LEAVE. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR TIME AND EFFORT POSTING YOUR RECIPES TO SUPPORT WW IN OUR WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Thank you Margaret, Good luck to you on the new plan 🙂

  35. I am excited about this change. I was most successful on WW Freestyle. I welcome everyone being on the same plan, and recipes having the same points value. I love your website btw, so many excellent recipes and tips.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Thanks Sally, I am so glad you are enjoying the recipes 🙂

  36. I’ve been a lifetime member since 1983 and the last plan was the worst. I had lost 80 pounds on the green/blue/purple plan, lowered my A1C and all my other vitals. They new plan launched and I started gaining weight and felt I had less variety to cook with to keep me satisfied and overall lost my “umph” to keep going and have since quit and gained 30+ pounds back. I’m happy things are going back.

    • Drizzle Reply

      I hear you, I too lost my “umph”! Looking forward to the changes, good luck to you! 🙂

  37. Great article! I could not agree with you more. This last program has been difficult to get on board with.
    I too am looking forward to going back to a netter program.
    Love your recipes!!!!!!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Vickie, I am so glad you are enjoying the recipes 🙂 Good luck with the new program!

  38. I think WW missed the mark. Disappointing! I’ve been a member since the original points program. Some of us need to have a way to count things over than fruit and veggies. I was successful when I had that. I know I’m not the only one.

    • Drizzle Reply

      I hear you.. I think regardless of what changes they make there will always be people that it doesn’t suit, Hopefully, you can find your way around the changes, good luck!

    Started ww back in late 70’s have been through almost ever plan. I did good until the zero point foods came in and then everyone doing their own thing with the green blue and purple. I did green , and on pp I had only eggs for my zero food. Too much freedom with food , much better and easier when every one had a set number of daily points and that was it. And the meeting were so much more enjoyable to attend!!

  40. Just my two cents here…. I have been on many plans with Weight Watchers. I like that they are always including new science and research into the programs. I have lost on all programs. It works if you work the program as designed. I love the virtual workshops. If you don’t like one, try another. I have found a leader that is incredible! I have found a larger, better community than I had in my in-person meetings. I love that you can find a virtual meeting at almost any time. I have attended meetings more regularly than ever before. I also like that I hear from familiar members as well as unfamiliar members and we learn so much from each other. Some mornings, I attend two meetings, just to see some of the members that attend at different times, or to have a repeat or clarification of what was presented in the first meeting.

    Thanks for this website and for posting recipes that help me to stay on plan!

      Thanks for sharing Bennet, it is always nice to read feedback from everyone! I hope you continue to enjoy the recipes 🙂

  41. I miss purple. I was successful on that and quit when they dumped it.

    • Drizzle Reply

      I know we all have our favorites, if the purple program is what worked for you maybe consider using a knock-off App to continue on that.

  42. Any news on when us Canadians will see the new program update in our app?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Mimi I have heard November 29th, not sure if it is 100% correct but let’s hope we see the new program by then!
