Points, Plus a Whole Lot More
Well, after about an 8 year hiatus I dragged my sorry (large) ass back to Weight Watchers. It’s a pain to track everything, the meetings can be hokey, and it’s kind of old fashioned in a lot of ways, but for me in seems to work.
For anyone not familiar, the Weight Watchers program works my assigning values to food and activity. In its current iteration, these values are called Points Plus. Weight Watchers tweak it’s program every year or two, not so that you have to buy all new stuff, although I’m sure they don’t mind that, but because they keep adapting both to new data, but also to try to close loopholes.
The Points program that I used about a decade ago was a little more rudimentary and really you could nearly “follow the program” on booze and chocolate. No, that doesn’t make it better.
Now, booze is pointerifically expensive and fruit is free. Those are just a couple of the factors that makes this an improved program. I’ll share more details here as time goes on.
