PointsPlus Progress

I’ve been following the PoinsPlus plan since the weekend, and I love it so far.  I don’t weigh-in until Friday, but here’s what I already know…

  • I’m making healthier food choices.  I’m reaching for a banana or an orange instead of a mini ice cream sandwich.
  • I feel light as a feather.  I don’t feel weighed down by processed foods.  I’m still eating some, but my intake of healthy whole foods is noticeably greater than it was in previous weeks. 
  • I love exercise, and I’m pleased with the number of activity points I could use if I needed to. 
  • The new Weight Watchers app for my iPhone is much more impressive than the app I used on Momentum.  It is much more comprehensive so I don’t feel a need for third-party apps like I did in the past. 
  • I feel like I have, once again, found the place where I belong.  I’ve said it a million times.  Weight Watchers changed my life, and there is something absolutely comforting and familiar about logging in e-tools.  

I’m so glad I chose to give PointsPlus a real shot.  I believe I’ll see good results when I weigh-in later this week, but I don’t have to weigh-in to know that I am making smarter, healthier food choices.  I feel awesome, and I feel confident that I am, once again, making the best decisions for my body.  And it feels good.

    Kenz! This is great! Oh, and what you say about feeling lighter … I totally agree with that. I feel so much lighter. A few weeks ago I went on a PB M-n-M binge and ate way, way too many … felt so heavy and gross … I will always remember that feeling compared to the light feeling … I haven't been tempted to binge since then!
    And ya know, I just agree with everything you said here. Great post!!!

    "I don't feel weighed down by processed foods." You hit that nail right on the head. It's an amazing feeling, isn't it? It took me months of healthier eating to be able to articulate that feeling. Keep it up!

    I'm glad you're enjoying the new program so far! This is the billionth time I've been on WW, and it's the first time I'm succeeding! I love that it's encouraging us to reach for whole/unprocessed foods.

    So glad you seeing success…I feel the same way. I'm not doing weight watchers…I'm doing sensotherapy, just eating healthy and exercising a ton. Your right, you just plain feel better when your putting healthy things in your body. It's great!! 🙂

    Great job! With making healthier food choices, you definitely will feel all-around better. I haven't had fast food or processed foods in months, not like I used to… I used to live off of processed foods. I know one thing – I'll be happy when I can get my own place and start buying my own food.

    I thought about looking into weight watchers, but don't think I could afford it right now. I just do my own thing, and I guess it's been working because even without exercise, I average a 2lb loss per week.

    Keep up the good work, girl! Stay motivated!

    Woo-hoo, Kenz!! I have been doing WW P+ for 5 weeks and it has been my most successful and easiest 5 weeks on Weight Watchers (and I have done it a few times before). Hugs!

    I love points plus too. It was a learning curve and not being able to just eyeball a label and figure out the points was difficult. But like you, I've found that I am making way better choices and I crave sugar less & less and I do feel lighter. Glad you gave it another shot!!!
