I feel like I may have to change things up a little because of this new WW plan.
As most of you may know, I am not actually a WW member at this time. This is primarily due to financial reasons. I have been an active member 3 times in the past and I have tons of materials for the points program, so I've just been doing it on my own using this blog as my support system/virtual meeting.
Now that things are changing, I feel like I should no longer be using the points program because everyone else will be doing the points plus program.
I know. I know. If everyone else jumped off a bridge, would I do it too...I get all that. This should be about what works for me, not about what the new trends are.
What works for me? Points. But more importantly, tracking. Just coming here and being accountable for what I eat every day is what works for me. It doesn't stop me from eating bad stuff, because that still happens. It does make me think twice about it and eat a lot less of said bad stuff when I do eat it. That's definitely a good thing.
So, what am I going to do? Rejoining WW is not in the budget right now. That's out. I'm hoping to get a peek at some of the new materials from a friend who might be kind enough to share it with me.
Until then, I think what I'm going to try this week is just tracking. No points. Just tracking what I eat and drink and trying to incorporate all of those good health guidelines. Let's just see how that works out until I figure out if I'm going to keep using the old points system or not.
After all, doesn't it really just come down to eating less, eating right and moving more? As long as I'm doing that, I'll still get the results I want. That's what it's all about - results.
