New plan??

So, I debated about writing this post, but felt I need all the information I could get. As you know, I have been dieting for about 3 weeks now. I have lost a little weight, but not as much as I would like. I have been sticking to roughly 1200 calories a day. i have been tracking my meals into one of my phone apps, which I love! But, I have not lost anything in 2 weeks. There is no way I could plateau already. I have been also trying to fit in some exercise and lots of water.

It's frustrating to say the least. After I had Thompson, I lost the baby weight plus about 25 pounds. It took me about 6 months to lose about 80 pounds. And now almost 16 months after having Brycen, I am still have 35 pounds of the 50 I gained to lose.


I am only 25, so I don't see why I should be hanging onto this weiht.

So last night I started researching different diets. Jenny Craig diets aren't feasible for me or my family. I looked up a few diet books and quickly found flaws. Then I was watching American Idol and saw Jennifer Hudson. So... I started thinking about Weight Watchers. I had previously did Weight Watchers after I had Thompson and was successful. But I got off of it and quickly gained the 20 pounds I had lost back. But in 2011, they came out with a new Points Plus program. It sounds more up-to-date. So today I signed up. I am cautiously optimistic. I hope that this is what will work.

But one problem so far is I feel like I am allotted way too many points. The new program gives you more because of the point value changes on the food. But today, I still have roughly 18 points left.

So, if any of my readers are familiar with WW, please feel free to give me suggestions. I have my first meeting tomorrow morning.

I am also going to do a 'Weight Watchers Wednesday' where I will update with my weekly (hopeful) weightloss. My normal meeting day will be Tuesday night. I am just going tomorrow for some information and my fiirst initial weigh-in.

Please let me know if any of you are doing a diet and are successful! Would love to hear about it!

Wish me luck!! :)

  1. My best friend is doing the super foods diet and she had lost aboout 10 lbs in two weeks. You may could combine that with WW and have more successful results. Good Luck! :)
