Default Old Weight Watchers Plan

Hello fellow WW friends, I am looking for the Weight Watchers plan that has the journal where you write what you eat, and then check off the little category boxes at the bottom. Example: 1/2 banana, check off one fruit. I don't remember portion sizes or exchange lists or how many boxes of each category. But this plan was the one that worked for me the best!! I maintained for a long time too. I want to go back to WW, but I don't want to learn the Points program to shift my mind over from what I know already works for me.
Anyone out there have access to it? Know where I can get it?

Dinner - 6 oz meat ,fish or poultry unlimited green vegetables.
throughout the day - 1 pint skimmed milk, 3 fruits, carrots & tomatoes were limited to 4oz throughout the day.
Weekly - red meat no more than 3 times. Liver once. Fish at least 5 times.
That was it, apart from herbs and spices and stock cubes everything else was FORBIDDEN. Hope this
helps.
I also worked for WW back in 71 thru 79 and lost 104 pounds! Well, I need to shed some again and this program works the best for me....because of the discipline. I just can't eat 3 chips or one piece of chocolate. Moderate isn't a word in my vocabulary!
I would love to find an original copy- wonder if the library has any??? I can't remember all the details either and I taught it 5 days a week!
Good luck to all who want to shed those pounds.

The new WW is much better than the old. Get with the times and stop living in the past. If it was so great back then why do you need it again now?

I think their thought is if you go cold turkey, so to speak, you may eventually feel deprived and pack on the pounds - for ex., if someone on ww *never* went out to eat, once they reach their goal they may go hog wild and put back on what they lost (she gave an ex of someone who did just that) - so in the long run, it's prob. better to cut back in moderation - that said, I have the same problem, counting 24 or 27 chips for x amount of points can be kind of a challenge not to mention it's hard to stop when you start (at least for me), it's a trigger. In passing, throwing out the point slide calculator (I cant rem. the official name) was strongly mentioned as it's changed a bit in the past few years - I wont and hope to find it one of these days, soon, in the house (found some ww stuff but unfortunately not that). Let's face it, we know what we should eat and should not eat, the trick is doing it

PS Am thinking maybe a large used bookstore might have some of the old weight loss plans - I found old ww cookbooks I bought in a weak moment in my house but not the old weight loss plans, I may try one in my town although the store size is extremely small but anything is possible...

I have to agree with Lucky on this. Why not give the New WW's a try???? What worked once years ago may not work so well again JMO.

Default original ww program

I contacted Weight Watchers and they told me they did not keep that type of records. Now really what major company does not keep their past programs in the archives somewhere. I really do need the original, I know it works and I am now diabetic and need to loose weight.

The new one works too. If you're diabetic, then you need to go on whichever diet your doctor tells you to go on, not something you find on the internet.

The new plan is great and very good for diabetics. I suggest you try it first before you poo poo it.
