I went to my WW meeting a day earlier than normal because I was anxious to see what the new plan was all about. I was a little anxious about going a day early...Well the verdict is in and I lost 3.6 pounds this week.
I was really happy with the number, did I eat perfect all week? No but I ate within my points and worked out 6 days. I also enjoyed what I wanted on Thanksgiving day.
Going to the meeting answered a lot of my questions about the new plan and I am committed to the new plan. My big question about the unlimited fruit for zero points and zero points for most vegetables was answered. YES you can eat all the fruits and most veggies for zero points however the leader said "But you have to you use common sense."
For those of us who have been doing WW for a while, I don't think we would have gone crazy eating too many fruits and veggies and gaining. However I do worry about people just now starting the program. I'm not so sure that a point value shouldn't be a assigned to all foods. When I first started I would have found it easier to know exactly what I could and couldn't do on a daily basis.
I love the fact that WW is encouraging us to make better choices and having us eat less empty calories. I have done well with food this weekend. I had a busy weekend with work and pay but I ate clean and did my cardio all weekend.
Btw I did have a fun weekend. I was invited by the Cincinnati Reds to play in a Texas Hold Em tournament for the Reds Community Fund. They invited local Radio and TV personalities to play and had almost everyone from the current Reds team and a lot of the greats from the past as well.Here is a picture from event.
I was thankful and thrilled to be invited. The Reds community fund does a lot of great work here in the tri-state. Nearly 500 people paid to play in the tournament.
