Ladies I still am no expert on the new momentum program from Weight Watchers but what I can gather from your comments it is pretty much the same thing. They were finding that people weren't using their points on foods that would fill them up so they have made filling foods the focus. I am hoping that you have already figured this out though because this really is the key to success.
I have a cousin who was "trying" to lose some weight before her wedding this past fall. I say trying because she was never fully able to find success with ww, remember I say this to encourage you not discourage you. The thing that she was never able to master was planning her foods out ahead (SO IMPORTANT in the beginning). She would eat a lunch that was huge in points and would have to eat 0 pt soup for dinner because she had used all her points already . That to me is a diet and will never work. She didn't make it a lifestyle by figuring out foods that will fill her up all day, she made it a restrictive thing. The other thing that contributed to her failure was a lack of support from her fiance. I know that not everyone is going to be supportive but he said things like "the only reason you are doing this is for you" "You don't need to be losing weight". Now we all love it when our significant others make us feel better when we are having an off day but when you are 5'1 and can no longer fit into clothes at a normal store something has to be done. We couldn't have a conversation for years that didn't include weight and how bad she felt. I am assuming her fiance didn't want her to lose weight because he also needs to. If someone is giving you a hard time about losing weight I am guessing you have hit on some insecurity in their life. They may need to lose weight or feel threatened by how great you will look when you do!! Just brush it off and smile because you are going to look hotter than them!
Hubby and I are getting in some activity points today! We are going to go to the park and play lacrosse. I have never played before so it should be interesting but at least it will be a fun afternoon with my hubby and doggie!
