Who is anxious to lose some weight this year? Me, me, and me! Let’s try out the Weight Watchers Simple Start plan to find it if it really works.
I started Weight Watchers 30 years ago, right after my second son was born. I went with my sister and we both did great. I only had 45 lbs to lose then and lost it in no time. That was when I became a lifetime member!
Over the past 30 years, I have gained a couple times….quite a few times actually, sometimes because of my medication and other times…because I love my sweets. That is my weakness. Cookies, donuts, pastries, you get the idea.
With that being said, I have been on every Weight Watchers plan that they have come out with. 3 years ago, I had lost 80 lbs. Unfortunately, I have put it back on, slowly over the course of the last 3 years. This past year was probably when I put the majority on. We were on the road traveling for 4 months. I know the foods that I am supposed to eat, but sometimes it’s hard. Needless to say, we ate a lot fast food. Still not sure why my husband gain weight like I do, we were eating the same stuff.
I figured since it was a new year, I always like to think it’s a fresh start. I went back to Weight Watchers to try their new Simple Start plan. After looking it over, I really don’t see too much of a difference from the power foods plan that they already had in place. I always counted my points and never really paid attention to it.
They suggest staying on the Simple Start plan for the first 2 weeks. So I figured…why not? What have I got to lose…except weight! I started on Jan. 1st and I get weighed in on Thursdays, which is tomorrow. You are also allowed 7 PP per day for any extras you might need. I used it for a slice of Weight Watchers Cheese, FF sour cream, Fudge Bars, Weight Watchers Ice Cream bars (because I need my sweets) and more.
Some of the foods I ate this week were:
So you see, you are able to have a variety of food. I try to rotate the food so I am not eating the same thing day after day. There really are endless possibilities.
But that question that everybody wants to know the answer to: Does the Weight Watchers Simple Start plan really work? My goal is to fit into this black dress that I wore for my son’s wedding 3 years ago.
Well….come back tomorrow to find out after I get weighed in! See you then.
Have you started on a weight loss plan this year?
