So Weight Watchers has started this whole Freestyle program and completely screwed up my blog name. I’m sure they contemplated hard the ramifications for my blog before they did this, right?
Anyway….So being that I’m on maintenance I now have 25 Smartpoints a day instead of the previous 36. Let me tell you, I’m diggin’ it.
You see with the previous program I felt like I was eating even if I wasn’t hungry, which is what brought my fat ass to Weight Watchers to begin with! I am more in tune with my body then I have ever been in my life, and I know when I’m eating just to eat.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that – Every body does it. It’s when it becomes a habit that problems develop. To be in your healthy eating zone before you had to be within 3 points of your target, so I needed to eat 33 points a day to meet that goal.
With the new program you are allowed a range of 10, which is freakin’ awesome. If you are a healthy food fan and cook most of your food you’ll find a lot of the things you eat are now 0 Smartpoints. You might not need all those extras, and finally they aren’t making us eat them!
