When it comes to the information shared at Weight Watcher meetings, I must Take What I Want And Leave The Rest.
First, let me again say how much I love the new “Points Plus” food plan. It’s the healthiest program that Weight Watchers has offered, as far as I am aware. Second, let me say that I respect each member’s individual need to “work” the program in the way that is best for them.
Sometimes I hear ideas at a WW meeting that I just have to let go through one ear and out the other. Take today for example. We were each given a small holiday die-cut shape thingy. We were encouraged to write on the shape an “L” an “M” or a “G” based on whether over the next two weeks we want to lose weight, maintain weight or…gasp…gain (a reasonable amount of) weight. I can’t do this. For me, Weight Watchers is a very healthy way of eating that I currently chose to follow. I need the structure day in and day out. If I follow this plan of eating, my body will decide for it’s self whether it Ls, Ms, or Gs. I’m not in control of that.
Weight Watchers is not a magic bullet. It’s just a food plan. It’s one of many tools I use one day at a time to become healthier physically. I have other tools that help me become healthier emotionally and spiritually.
By the way, I lost two pounds, taking my total amount lost to 85.
So what letter will I write on my die-cut shape thingy? I’ll write two letters, actually. F.P. for Food Plan. What can I say? I’m a renegade.
