    Welcome to alt.support.diet.weightwatchers newsgroup, an international forum for discussion and
    support for members of Weight Watchers or those who are following the Weight Watchers Winning
    Points program. 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

    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)
