Back last year Weight Watchers completely changed their program. And in the beginning I was in love with it, just like a lot of people. I welcomed the change and quickly implemented the new PointsPlus program into my life. And it worked, but never as well as the old program did.
But I stuck with it, I figured it would all work out and I would lose weight like I had been on the old program. Well it would work out for a couple of weeks, then it would all fail again. And it wasn’t because I wasn’t tracking or working out. I’ve been doing those things quite routinely lately and I’m still gaining or not losing.
It’s become frustrating. And I’ve learned I’m not the only one with these frustrations. A few ladies and I were tweeting each other about it yesterday. They’re having a lot of the same issues I am.
Now this isn’t a sudden decision. I’ve really been thinking about trying a new approach for the last month while still doing PointsPlus. I stopped going to meetings because I cannot see the point in paying $13 a week to be told I’m gaining even though I’m doing all that I’m supposed to be doing. Plus, I really don’t have an extra $52 a month.
So, after giving it thought, I’m going to do some good ol’ fashioned calorie counting. MyFitnessPal is what I’ll be using. They have a pretty awesome droid app and the site is very informative. I’ll still be tracking everything I eat and working out 4-5 times a week.
Really hoping this will be the thing my body needs to get back on the losing track!
Are you a PointsPlus follower, if so have you been frustrated with the new program lately?
Are you a calorie counter, if so how do you like it?
