    Welcome to newsgroup, an
    international forum for discussion and support for members
    of Weight Watchers. You do not need to be a member of Weight
    Watchers to participate in ASDWW, though you will find the
    discussions easier to follow if you are familiar with the
    Winning Points and FlexPoints programs.

    The purpose of this message is to point new readers to
    sources of additional information.

    Official ASDWW FAQ:
    Q: I see lots of acronyms in the subject lines of posts.
    What do they all mean?
    R: NSV = Non-Scale Victory, those successes not measured by
    the scale. People noticing your weight loss, smaller
    clothing sizes, practicing a new behavior, recognizing a
    new habit are examples of NSVs.
