New Weightloss Challenge w/ Kate B!

My friend/sorority sister, Kate B, and myself have been talking about doing our own little weight loss competition.  This event sparked from a previous weight loss competition I had with my other friend/sorority sister Erin (I have yet to college my prize, ahemmm!).  So we both weighed in today.  The end date and final prize is TBD, but it’s another competition that I hope will push both of us.  I must say, I was not impressed with my weight.  In fact, it gave me even more motivation to kick it into high gear.

So Kate, let’s do disss!  Also, I’ve been wanting to do Weight Watchers, but it’s an extra $13 each week in addition to my $50/month at the damn gym.  Things be getting costly up in here.  But I know more than anyone else that $$$ is my biggest motivator.  It really gets me going, esp. when I see that it’s going down the drain (in this case, it wouldn’t be… since I’d be religiously good with my habits… lol, but maybe).  I think I’m weary because I’m so used to the old points system that this new “points plus” shindig would get me confused.  I know one of my friends from work is doing it and she’s been doing well, so I guess it’s something to definitely consider.  The way I see it is, whatever I’m doing right now isn’t really working out, so I must find a better way! Thing I’ve always loved about WW is that you really can eat anything you want so long as it’s within your point allowance for the day.  I think I’m going to research the nearest location to my apt… I might join a drop in sesh tomorrow before or after zumba… hmmm

Thoughts?

    I think doing the ww thing is the way to go. Esp. if you have an app on your phone to help out with the points. Remember it’s about planning ahead, know what you will be eating before you get there and don’t change your mind once you are there. Before you eat drink a full glass of water and eat slowly. (chew chew and chew) it’s also good for your digestion. Enough said, the main thing is that you are on the right track and just look ahead, post some picture of ash gram your idol. Ask GOD to walk with you and to show you what he wants for you now and tomorrow. Love Wow

    The new program is so much easier! Fruits and Veggies are 0 points. I was wary when they had made the switch too – but the Points Plus program is solid….I go to meetings now in AZ because I need the extra motivation and its definitely a good investment, albeit a tough one to make when you are paying for the gym time too!

      Good to know! I heard something like that about fruits and veggies. I guess I’m just confused as to how a banana could be 0 points. Crazy stuff… but yeah, DEF an investment. But I suppose I’m worth it. 😉 Thx for the comment, Lena-bear.

    I was doing WW when they first started with the new plan and I found the one week transition from one program to the next to be sooo difficult. I had done the other program for so long that I could pretty much figure out points on anything without using a calculator. Maybe that’s what I get for being lazy and not tracking all day everyday but it fit my life yanno? This week I am going back to starting doing meetings and I am hoping that my hiatus will make it easier to really get back into the new system.
    If you do decide to do it let me know how it goes!

      Sooooooj-ah! 😉 Yes, I’m hoping as well that since I’ve been off the old pts system that jumping right into the New Points Plus will be easier. I definitely will let you know! I’m thinking of checking out a free sesh some time this week. I still need to find one in my area… argh. Please keep me posted on your take of the new system. Much <3 to you girl. You're one tough (strong) cookie!
