This was a hard decision for me. I have been doing Weight Watchers since 2010. This whole year I found myself bored with the program. I found myself not tracking and not counting points. Just to remind everyone..I am not a member. I do everything for free. Since I do everything on my own then I physically write things in my notebook. I hate it. I wanted to do the online components but realized how much money it was. It was either I do that or my gym. I rather be a member of my gym.
I downloaded the app My Fitness Pal. I decided I should not count points anymore but calories. I think it will work better for me. All my workouts are calorie based. I find it so difficult to figure out the Weight Watcher points for my workouts. I feel like I am always guessing. Can I sing? Am I sweating? Can I talk? Ugh..So annoying how to figure it out.
Also, I find My Fitness Pal more convenient for I am always on my phone. I am not trying to bash Weight Watchers but it is time for a change. Weight Watchers worked for a while but it is time for something new.
I need to remember one pound at a time. It took me a long time to gain the weight and it will take a long time to lose it. I am still reading and following Bob Harper The Skinny Rules. I find that counting calories will be easier to handle then Weight Watchers with what Bob Harper says we need to do in his book.
Also, January 3rd starts this Diet Bet. If you are interested in earning money then I suggest to join. It is $30 and if you lose 4% of your body weight you could win more or your money back. It is great motivation and I have done it before in the past.
So, I feel bad for saying goodbye to Weight Watchers..but I need to try something new. I need to figure out what is best for me. Calorie counting maybe what is best. I will still eat and buy Weight Watched products. I just will not be following the program.
Stay tune tomorrow..I will write a blog post recapping my year. I gained weight this year but some cool weight loss milestones happened. Also, I will share my goals for 2015. Not resolutions..I do not believe in those..but I will share my goals.
