Hey everyone! I think I sat down to write a post Weight Watcher related about a thousand times over the last few months. I think now is a good time to chat about it mostly because of the NEW improved program Weight Watchers just unveiled.
My weight loss came to a screeching halt with the last program change. I loved the idea behind the program, loved the fact that I did not need to count fruit, just watch portions of them, and I loved the flexibility the plan gave me. The plan changed my thoughts on carbs entirely. Limiting them became a new (HARD) habit for me. I started to listen to my body more than ever- something very NEW to me and I enjoyed getting to know what foods made me feel better, and kept me full longer.
I guess it was my fault for not speaking to anyone about the reasons why I was stuck for almost a year. When I started to get a little frustrated for the lack of scale luv, I slowly stopped tracking. I was aware of my food choices and mentally took note, but nothing compares to actually keeping a food journal.
Little but little I started gaining weight. Each week stepping on that scale, still paying for my monthly Weight Watchers membership, but not really participating in the plan. I would always say next week….then for whatever reason I would never track. I had stayed hovering the 160 mark for a year and now I find myself at 170. No, it’s not terrible. No, it’s not the end of the world. But, for me it’s not where I want to be. I was happier at 160…I know it’s just a matter of 10 pounds…but those 10 pounds make a difference for me. I also want to add 5 more pounds to that loss and get to goal!
Now…The new 2012 PointsPlus plan! I go to my meetings on Friday’s- so the full scoop on this plan will be discussed this coming Friday. Since they gave all of the updated info already online, I was able to read about it last Friday. My leader did tell us a little bit since she knew most of us would be needing some sort of explanation as to why we were shorted daily points. lol
So yeah- I had 3 PointsPlus removed from my dailies. Am I ok with that? HELL YES! If it helps me get to goal- SURE! Do I miss that 3…YEP! lol I always get use to what is given to me and I did have to plan accordingly to make sure I was satisfied throughout my day. Now do not panic! If you were losing with those additional 3 dailies, keep on going! You can add them back in. The plan is flexible!
Today is day 4 for me…fully ON PLAN. TRACKING 100%, and I will be looking forward to getting on the scale this coming Friday. I am also looking forward to hearing more about the plan in person- at the meeting. I really love the meeting aspect of Weight Watchers and I know that part helps me the most!
I’m not sure why I put off talking about ME for so long but I guess I know everyone struggles and I wanted to share where I am at. I know I can get through this. I also know I need to work at keeping my weight and food issues under control. It’s seriously a battle, but I am a FIGHTER!
