New Weight Watchers Program #myWW

TODAY IS THE BIG DAY!  WW (formerly Weight Watchers) released its brand new program, which now gives you an option to choose between 3 different programs based on your preferences, lifestyle, and needs.

I had the opportunity to preview the program for a few weeks and have decided that the program for me (for right now) is the Blue Program, which is the same as the WW Freestyle program.

For me, I loved the zero point food options on Freestyle and did not seem to have an issue with the reduction in daily points or overdoing the zero point foods.

My biggest observation between previewing the programs is this: WW works if you work it.

PERIOD.

What is your #myWW?  I’d love to hear.  Also, if you’re not sure or you have questions, check out the links below:

My Battle with Binge Eating

I have been wanting to write about the topic of binge eating for a while now, because I know that it’s something that many people struggle with—myself included.

Even though I have lost a significant amount of weight and have a great deal of success on Weight Watchers and have, over the years, maintained much of my weight loss, I still struggle pretty consistently with binge eating.  I struggled with binge eating prior to my weight loss journey (which is why and how I got over 300lbs in the first place), but I have still struggled with it throughout my journey as well.

To Compare or Not to Compare

If you’re on Instagram and following a variety of health/weight loss accounts, then you’re probably already aware of a lot of weekly posting rituals.  You’ve got the #mondaymotivation, #transformationtuesday, #wcw, #throwbackthursday, #flashbackfriday, #selfiesaturday.  A lot of it appears to be around the idea of posting a photo of yourself and many of them comparison photos.

In the past few months, I have had multiple people criticize the concept of the side-by-side comparison.  One person told me it was a reason they quit Weight Watchers®, others have announced they would unfollow your account if you posted any before/after (or then/now) photos, and many have moved towards an effort to try and get people to stop looking back, appreciate where you are right now and in the present moment.

Motivation vs. Focus

I recently received this question through my website: Have you ever lost motivation and, if so, how did you get it back?

I had to really think about how to answer that question.  And then it just hit me.  I don’t think that I have ever lost my motivation; however, I have most certainly lost my FOCUS.  Does that make sense?

I feel like my motivation and desire to continue to lose weight is there.  It’s never gone away.  But my FOCUS on how to get me to where I want to be has most certainly waned here and there throughout my journey.  And, in fact, every since March, my focus has NOT been on point at all.

I am happy to say that I’ve recently been able to get it together and get myself refocused.  When I thought about what happened to get me to refocus and get back on track, I realized it was a compound effect of all of the following things…
