Back on the DubDub

You may know this old friend as Weight Watchers.  I know it as the thing, after a few months of feeling quite out of control, has me feeling back on track. Back in control.

I'm sure a lot of us have been on Weight Watchers before, but there have been some changes to the program recently.  The system is now known as Points Plus. The biggest difference now is that all fruits and almost all veggies (except the starchy ones) are 0 points. Instead of taking calories, fat and fiber into account, the new system uses protein, carbs, fiber and fat. It means certain foods are higher points, but with others having none, it evens itself out. You also get more points a day to play with - the minimum is 29, once I lose a couple points I'll be there, for now I'm at 30.

I'm really excited to have this accountability, plan to follow, and feeling of control again. 

Hope ya'll are good!

I was JUST looking at the WW online program as a way to get back on track. Eerie.

I tried WW a couple of times but I always got bored with counting points. I got bored with counting calories too AGAIN and am back at square 1.

I hope this works for you.
