Cool -- new thread.

Toying with the idea of using my WW app again...I think it's pretty close to what I was doing before, but this may keep me more accountable. Hmmm...

Hello all. I would like to join this thread. I joined WW on Thursday and I have 50 pounds I want to lose, I had gastric bypass over a year and half ago but recently had gained 10 pounds so I wanted to join WW and get a grip on things before I gained anymore. I lost 132 pounds with the bypass and I am thankful for that but it didn't change the food addiction in my head. That's why I think this will help me learn to eat healthy and lose the rest of my weight. I look forward to getting to know you all. I will be going to my meetings on Thursday. Hope I lose some weight this week.

Hello and Happy New Year everyone!

Went off plan on Thanksgiving and getting make on plan starting Monday. I have managed to keep my weight where it was when I went off so I'm doing well. I also know if I don't get on plan right away it's not going to be "I'm doing well"!

WWPP and love the fact I can screw up at times and it doesn't make things for me!

I will say without WWPP I tend to slide back to my nighttime binging so for no other reason I will stay on plan to keep this binge monster away!

Thanks for starting a new thread and looking forward to seeing everyone's progress! Also, don't forget to post your yummy recipes in the WW recipe thread! I just love looking at new ideas and different foods!

You are welcome Rose.

I'm doing the Points Plus mostly for portion control, but using mostly Power Foods and finding they are very satisfying. I was a little afraid of coming back to WW because I was afraid of only 26 DP, but by using a lot of veggies and a few fruit (diabetics only allowed 2 or maybe 3 serving), I am finding that it works very well. I do have days I overdo the points, but my sister tells me you do that at first. She and her hubby attend meetings. I do online. DH and I shared a Chinese dinner yesterday and even with dividing everything in half except the rice we never eat all of it, I found that meal still made my points a bit high. Thank goodness the exercise pts earned and my WP help a lot when that happens. I just had to plan the rest of the day with a lot of Power foods especially those with 0 pts. However, if I had planned better I could have done better. I'm finding it is all in the planning. I've only been at this a little over a week so still in learning the new plan. I would love to do the Simply Filling plan and maybe I can later, but just don't trust me to do that. Besides the exercise pts earned does keep me exercising and moving around. Strange how much moving I'll do just to see it on the tracker.

Have a super Sunday.

That's the main reason , I don't do want to do the points . I hate looking them up and counting everything. I was thinking low carb mixed with power foods ? Can that be done ?

I'm not sure, but I really don't see why you couldn't do that. Let us know how that goes for you.

I am using the e-tools this time faithfully. I just found out they had set me at earning 14 exercise points a week and I have earned 26 exercise pts and I don't weigh until Wednesday. I know my weight will be up a little since last Wednesday, but that is to be expected since the original weight loss was mostly water loss. I figure that I am just now really starting to work on real weight.

I am really excited about how things are going and I'm even enjoying the exercise. Go figure.

Hello everyone. Hope you are having a great Sunday. Mine has been good. I went to the YMCA and walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes since I am just starting out walking again. It felt good. I plan to try and walk everyday. I am doing good with my eating as well. I am tracking everything I eat. I find that this works best for me.

Hi All, I am restarting yet again, after losing 20 pounds on PointsPlus the first half of last year and regaining it back this fall I am going to do the Simple Start and maybe even stay with the Simply Filling technique, I love my proteins and get tired of tracking. Unfortunately my meeting was cancelled today, due to the crazy cold temps here. I think most of you are doing Points Plus?

Hi everyone!!

I'm Cle, I started weight watchers many times and continually failed/quit. Last year I lost 63 lbs following simply filling/power foods...which is the old core plan. Love weight watchers! I attend meetings on Saturdays at 8 am. My leader ROCKs . It's always so energetic and encouraging. This past week, the lady in front of me made lifetime. She literally was jumping for joy. It just inspired me so much and reminded me that I too, will get to goal! Meetings work for me, so I will work it!

I'm eating to live, literally, so I need to get my life! Last May I was diagnosed with heart disease, found out I was in heart failure and a list of other things. At 30 years old, it was a lot to take in. I had five surgeries, three were heart surgeries and those three happened within two months. My friends here were amazing and so supportive. I'm only sharing because I'm in this to win. I've had to completely cut sodium from my diet and fatty foods. Don't get me wrong, I indulge but now I can't go crazy.

I watched this documentary on YouTube about eating a plant based diet and a cardiologist that saw a lot of success when he placed his patients on this eating style. All of them like myself, were near death and twenty years later they are still active and living good lives. I owe it to myself to give it a try. I def feel better when I eat this way. I'm going to try and stick it out as long as I can.

Sorry didn't mean to rant, or share that much but I guess I needed to get it out! Thank God for life!

I went to a meeting tonight and they introduced the simple start program. The food plan seems easier than counting points but I'm just getting the hang of points plus and need to stick with it. I've lost three pounds since Christmas and I'm sure it's from exercising because I wasn't being honest with myself on what I was eating.

The Simple Start program is eating strictly power foods. If you want something that isn't a power food you need to keep track of the points. You are allowed seven points per day. I think it's supposed to make it easier for people that have a hard time tracking their points. The weekly pamphlet was loaded with recipes and explained the plan. The recipes seemed very easy to do and the food looked delicious.

A few meetings ago one of the ladies was telling me about using popcorn for a snack. The product is called "Skinny Pop" popcorn. I've found it at Walgreens and Sam's club. It's 1 point per cup of popcorn and it's very good! I've been eating it daily because it has a light salty taste to it and I also feel more satisfied because it takes awhile to chew. I suggest you try it out if you get a chance.

A few meetings ago one of the ladies was telling me about using popcorn for a snack. The product is called "Skinny Pop" popcorn. I've found it at Walgreens and Sam's club. It's 1 point per cup of popcorn and it's very good! I've been eating it daily because it has a light salty taste to it and I also feel more satisfied because it takes awhile to chew. I suggest you try it out if you get a chance.
Yes, that Skinny Pop popcorn is delicious! It's similar to the Trader Joe's brand, which is also very low in calories.
