Last week I decided to put my tail between my legs and go back to Weight Watchers (WW). I kept telling myself it was in support of my husband who joined the week prior, but honestly I know I need it. I need a little boost, a little help, and a lot of support to get myself back on track. I haven’t gained that much, maybe 7-10 pounds, but mainly I know that it’s my mindset that isn’t right and I need to get back to where I was after my 70 pound weight loss in 2017 if I’m going to be successful this year and … and well, forever.
The new WW is great, my assessment placed me in “purple” and I believe that is accurate for my lifestyle. There are so many zero point foods available to me and as I self-diagnosed food addict, I eat constantly so it’s nice to have so many options.
Lunches and Dinners haven’t been too hard to manager while staying within plan. We eat generally healthy anyway, so we are still eating the foods we love with only a few minor adjustments.
Snacking has always been my biggest struggle; however with the new WW plan all (or most) fruits and veggies are zero points, air-popped popcorn is my “go-to” at zero points along with fat-free yogurt and oatmeal. With so many options there is no way to get bored.
Even with the online-only app there is still a lot of support. Most of the support comes from other members and I enjoy interacting with like-minded people, but there is no shame is simply being an observer. However, there is a 24/7 Live Coaching Chat available. I haven’t needed that yet, but I’m not afraid to click on the button if I need it!
