"It's almost like magic, it's like a commitment I have history with ww. I've been successful. for me, just the humiliation of having to walk back in and listen to someone who was good or bad or whatever she is, the leader, I'm stuck listening to her stuff. Something about it, RIGHT NOW, I'm reversing the pattern. Something has changed.
The biggest thing I love about rejoining and going back is it's a big program. Physicial program. Learn the whole new pattern. Everything about the new points, study the books. I like the fact that I'm taking my life into control now.
Big Focus On Recipes To Start You Off
First of all,they give you a bunch of recipes in the starter book. They give you two or three of their best - right now, you know, I could do this, this looks good. The leader pointed out the best one so you can
make a good dinner right away.
People Who Rejoin Weight Watchers Need To Sit In For An Extra 1/2 Hour Class
As a new returner, you have to sit in for an extra 1/2 hour class because there is a new system. There's always a new system, because they're always learning new things and refining their system.
Keeping The Points System And Merging Flex and Core Into Momentum
This time they merged core and flex into the new system momentum. No one ever wants to give up points, because points are such a comfortable system because you can eat anything, you can have pizza, you can have liquor, any damn thing you want as long as you count points.
Not only do you get a lot of points on weight watchers, you get 35 extra points for the week. People love extra points because extra points means splurging, cookies, cake, an extra glass of wine, some butter on their vegetables or butter on their eggs, so you love your splurge points and you have 35 of them!
Some Point Values Have Changed And Different Foods Are Now Emphasized
You want to learn the new points of every food because you forget the points when you're going back and sometimes the points changes, and sometimes they just invent new things that you can have, like last time maybe they thought avocado was ridiculous, but this time they're kind of pushing avocado.
You can't wait to learn all the new points because you're designing your three meals a day. You're designing your day. You're designing how filling your day can be. LIke I do 5, 5 and 10. 5, break, 5 lunch, 10 for dinner. Right away, you get your points, your book and you're designing your filling breakfast.
New Program Helps You Eat A Lot Of Food And Not Feel Hungry
So right away you can see you're going to be able to eat a lot of food, so you're very happy, up and optimistic. Because basically, you want to eat a lot of food and now you know you can. Oh, I can do, this, this is wonderful. You always forget how great weight watchers is, because you forget how much food you get. Because as time goes on, you want to stay thin, and you eat less and less to maintain
and you start to.
Very surprised to see this time how little I need to change my diet, because basically, I am always doing the weight watchers diet but when it comes down to it, I was eating all the extras. What happens is, just because you've made the commitment, you're suddenly not going to have all the extras, because you're thinking 5, 5, 10.
Helping Her Stay On Track Because She Doesn't Feel The Need To Snack On The Extras Anymore
Now, you're on the program, you're in the right direction, and you don't seem to need the extras anymore. It's kind of strange, I don't even know why. And let me tell you, I ate like an idiot last night, but it's ok, because I'm on weight watchers, and I know I'm on it. It's psychological. Once you're on it, you know your weight is going down.
Looked at the points, and realized, wow, what I've been eating, oatmeal and blueberries is only 3 points, so I was kind of starving myself and didn't know it. I can have a whole cup of blueberries and still stay under 3 points. And now, I get two more points at lunch.
Getting Comfortable With Points Helps To Feel Comfortable With Choices
But what's interesting, when I have egg and avocado for breakfast, that turns out to be exactly 5 points, which is what I've always done, and now I find out that it is 5 points. Because I actually know the points value, I feel comfortable with my choices.
The difference is, when you're on WW, because you have to count the points, you just stop eating the extras.
They Give You This Great Little Slider At The Meetings To Count Points
One of the things I love is the fact that you have that little weight watchers slider, you can take anything you eat and put the fiber,fat and calories and figure out right away how to figure out your day. For
instance, I found out a luna bar, on the spot was 3 points so I could have a huge apple and that you can eat so much hummus!
Really Great New Approach To Dieting
When you're counting points, you can eat so much more than when you're not counting and on the program. You tend to starve yourself when you're not on the program because you're not really counting. You always think you're overeating. What it does is starves your body and your body hangs
on to the weight. When you're eating the right amount, it boosts your metabolism and you start losing the weight."
Conclusion And Ways To Get Started On The New Weight Watchers Momentum Program
I will keep posting feedback like this. One thing that really seems to have changed is the focus on recipes and tailoring them to your tastes. This makes for a better product and is also smart from a business standpoint. It is no longer just about counting some points which you can really do on your own. You really now need to pay your $40 or whatever it is to get started and learn their new stuff.
People ask the best way to get started and I always come back to the readiness part of it. They have some tools on their site which help you with that. Here are some ways to get started:
1. If you are thinking about joining Weight Watchers, do what my mom did and start with their online tools. You can measure your BMI, find out how much health damage you have done with your weight and also take an interesting quiz to gauge your psychological readiness to lose weight.
2. If you want to find out pricing or just want to see if there is a meeting near you and the schedule you can look it up on their website by entering in your zip. There are a TON of meetings out there. And if you have feedback or experience on any diet, please let me know!
3. If you are a guy maybe you have some questions about Weight Watchers overall- we are covering in another post titled Weight Watchers Momentum For Men- How This Compares To Atkins or South Beach.
