    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

    ========
    MINI 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.

    WOE = Way of Eating WOL = Way of Life (Living)
