So I joined Weight Watchers, yep you aren’t seeing things, I really did. First things first I want to say that I still like Slimming World. I learned so much with them and it changed my entire life. I am just the type of person who needs change sometimes.
This is probably time I should tell you that I’ve done Weight Watchers before, in 2010 I joined after the birth of my second son and I lost 3 stone on the plan. So as much as I am a newb, I’m also not. Although it certainly has changed since I last was on it.
So let’s talk about the why;
It a nutshell, I need focus. It seems I am the type of person who binge eats. When left to my own devices I don’t half eat – oink oink. Iit’s become a bit of problem for me. I also have gained 21lb but that said I am happy with how fit and healthy I am right now so if I don’t lose any weight that’s okay too, I aim for fat loss and inch loss as I am on a gym plan with my online coach.
I joined as an online member, and I got a good deal 40% off so 3 months for just under £30 (not an ad, I paid for this myself) – I have to say even though I am only 3 days in I really like what I see so far, the app is by far a strong feature that they have in comparison to other plans I have done. It is as simple as scan a barcode and boom. If your barcode doesn’t scan which isn’t often there is a search function and even an online community section which I have found to be really motivating.
So that’s me, a Weight Watchers member once more. Feeling really positive and motivated and most importantly, focused. It’s fun getting to grips with pointing again and really interesting to see the differences between WW and SW. I might even blog about this another time.
