"So ... how YOU doin'?"
It's been 10 days with all the tools at my disposal and I am PROUD to say I'm down 2 pounds from where I was last Thursday! YAHOO!!!!! I am up a bit still from a couple of mornings ago, but it's a goal to work toward.
So if you've joined (or rejoined) us this week with PointsPlus, how is it going for you? It's definitely an adjustment, but the changes are wonderful! If you're brand-new to Weight Watchers, WOW, what an introduction, huh? One of my fellow members tonight had just joined last week, and she kicked butt: down nearly 8 pounds!!! WOW!!!!!!
If you're having trouble making the transition, keep working PointsPlus. It may take you a little while longer to adjust but your body is going to say, "Oh wow! Look at all the good stuff you're feeding me!" And you may even find that the things you ate on Points (because of a low value) aren't really worth it on PointsPlus -- or that you have to work them in a little more, but it's worth it.
I had told a few fellow members that the thing I have appreciated most is a greater sense of freedom and flexibility. I'm fretting less over "how am I going to fit this in?" and instead thinking, "Wow! I get to find a way to make this work!" For example, last night, things didn't quite go as planned for me and I ended up eating grocery-deli sushi (and hey, it was brown rice sushi at that, and really good too). Got to choir practice and GASP! we had a reception downstairs. With cake -- a very cool 3-D cake of the building. So you know what I did? I had a slice. Woe is me, right? Nope. Not in the least. Had I used some of the Weekly Allowance? Yes, and I was about to use some more..... :) That was something I was very loath to do on Turnaround or Momentum (a/k/a the Points Plan). With PointsPlus, I don't even sweat it. I also earned activity points this week and so I had that to fall on as well if I absolutely needed to do so.
PointsPlus works. I promise. Hang in there and LOVE it - LIVE it.
