Weight Watchers Journey Begins

Sooo…..I took the plunge Monday night and officially joined Weight Watchers.  Half way through day two and I am holding my own.  I did WW a very long time ago but it is so different now.  No points for fruits and veggies and I have a lot of points to use during the course of a day….not to mention those 49 extra for the week.  My group leader is very nice, her name is Kim and five years ago she lost 104 pounds….she must be doing something right.  The meeting was good, but I have to say that most of the things that I heard were kind of like no brainers.  I wish that more time had been spent explaining the program and how to get started.  I truly felt like I was flying blind yesterday morning.  Over lunch I spent some time on-line getting a feel for how things worked as well as familiarizing myself with the e-tools.  WW has made it very easy to incorporate your smart phone into your weight loss success….so convenient!  For those of you that hate to track (like me), the app makes it so much less like a chore than when you had to write everything down by hand….easy peasy!  I am also in awe of the barcode scanner (free app).

 You just scan the barcode and the app tells you how many points are in a serving.  It does not have all products, but it did have a really random item that I tried just for fun.  There is also another app: Points Plus Calculator that helps you if the scanner doesn’t work, but you do have nutritional info. 

Excellent tools in my opinion to help keep you on track!  Reading back over this it sounds like I am already doing some serious complaining….so didn’t mean to come off that way, was just making some observations in my outside voice.   I am excited for the journey and can’t wait to share my progress.  I am going to do my best to post regular pics so there will also be a visual record of my weight loss.  I am also going to continue my Advocare MNS3 and Spark. 

I had some phenomonal blood work results last week and I have a sneaky suspicion it had somehting to do with my supplements.  Don't see any reason why I shouldn't be able to do them both.  For any of you that are already well into your Weight Watchers journey, I welcome all suggestions and advice.  It takes a village, Peeps!

  2. Julie,
    Great Job on starting your journey. I look forward to watching you whittle yourself down to the size that would please you. IMO the simpler the plan the easier to stick with it...sounds like the apps really help you there.
