When I started WW back in the day, it was Flex/Core. Flex you counted points, Core you simply ate off a approved list of foods. Both plans worked if you stuck to them, but with a lot of people sticking with a plan 100% is hard. They also had weekly points, but not many, and for me personally if I ate any of those, I gained.
So now WW has Simply Filling – the continuation of Simple Start – it’s been around for a while, but I never fully tried it. I would flirt with the idea but was like “I CAN’T HAVE (X FOOD)”. It became mental torture.
So now I am more mature (or something) and am trying it again. My weigh in day is tomorrow, but I decided to start a day early, and then continue with it over the next week and see where that brings me. I lost 0.4 last week, but I feel like I will have gained this week. Too much eating out, too much alcohol (not enough to get drunk, but you know), even though I exercised, you can’t out train a bad diet.
So that’s it.
Eating cleaner and with more variety. I love salads and veggies and fruit anyways, so this will just be binge-fest on those things. I’m good with that.
I am thinking about this in the long term, but for now I think it will be a good reset to how I’ve been eating. It doesn’t hurt that there are some of the really good WW products that are super duper yummy, on the approved list.
I think there will be a crap ton of smoothies and oatmeal in my future.
