Well I did it, I survived my summer vacation. It is amazing how fast 4 weeks goes when you are on vacation. There was no big trip this year, so all the fun was kept local. I was worried about staying on my plan while being at home most of time and outside of my normal routine. I’m so proud of myself, I did great. If fact, I lost an additional 5 pounds while I was off work.
Not only did I on stay on plan, I also had some time to reflect. Although I love Weight Watchers and would recommend their program to anyone starting out on their weight loss journey, I began to think that perhaps I’ve outgrown Weight Watchers. Their Smart Points program is simple, fun and there is lots of support within the online Connect community, but I think I’m ready for more. I want to be more aware of what I’m actually eating, as in protein, fat, carbs, sugar, etc.
Last week I began transitioning from Weight Watchers to My Fitness Pal. The food tracker is very similar to WW, except that you get the details of how many calories you are eating and how many grams of protein, carbs, fat and sugar. The mobile app is user friendly and My FitBit workouts are transferred to My Fitness Pal which creates a calorie adjustment. It’s only been about a week, but so far I like this program, and it’s FREE 🙂
