Evidently, Weight Watchers has updated their program again – yes, I’m slow to the party. It’s now called Weight Watchers Points Plus 2012.
I guess this gives away the fact that I haven’t been to WW at all so far this year. However, I’ve decided to finally try out the meeting route. So many people have told me that they are really the key to success and sticking with it, and since I clearly have issues sticking with it, I’m going to check one out tonight.
So, how is Points Plus 2012 different? Well, one of the changes to the program is something they’re calling Power Start sessions. Following the first three meetings you attend of this new program, you will stick around for three Power Start sessions – PowerSpaces, PowerChoices and PowerPlans. I don’t know anymore than that right now, but I’ll let you know when I do.
Also new to the program, is that you can choose to not count points if you’re willing to eat Power Foods exclusively – they’re calling it Simply Filling. You can choose to do that for a day, a few days or the entire program. The Power Foods are those in the listing with the green triangle symbol – lean proteins, fruits, veggies, low-fat dairy/dairy substitutes and whole grains.
Finally, they also give you a weekly activity PointsPlus goal – I think this one is great. We all know at this point that without exercise, weight loss seems to eventually become weight gain. I think that setting a starter goal of 14 activity points each week (2 per day) is awesome.
All the new materials with Weight Watchers Points Plus 2012 are great in explaining the program – personally I think they’re much clearer then they were before.
Back in the saddle……AGAIN. Join me, won’t you?
Oh, and if you have any questions or comments about the new program, please let me know!
