Enjoy Eating Out

Image
Plan for stress-free, fun and delicious away from home dining, thanks to zero Points goods and rollovers, plus your digital tools.

Using WW Freestlye is all about being able to "live freely" - giving you the flexibility to enjoy social occasions with family and friends-the trick is a little planning.  We all know you can't dictate the menus when you go out to eat or visit with family or friends, but there are things you can do before you go!  That way you're prepared for anything - even family holidays.  Because eating out doesn't have to mean a restaurant, it can mean eating anywhere other than your house.

So for us weight Watcher's out there - we can bank our points for that special meal out.  We already have weeklies to spend, then add up to 4 unused SmartPoints values per day to that mix and you have a nice little bankroll to pull from for that meal out.  
Another thing that everyone that has been at this whole weight loss thing for a while know is that y…

Support

Feedback from family and friends can make or break you. Support carries far, but sometimes the non-support takes up residence in your brain (squashing down that support you do receive).
My closest friends are always supportive. They’ve tailored meals served at an event for me, they continuously cheer me on while I struggle my way through this weight loss journey and don’t let me give up. But Family, oh family. Those folks can be the most challenging. Most of the time the people in my house are supportive. They eat the meals I cook for myself so I don’t have to cook multiple meals. They know that Friday’s and Saturday’s I am super strict with myself. However sometimes my family that doesn’t live here, they dismiss my efforts.

The best example and why it’s so fresh is a dinner with my parents this weekend. They really just don’t understand my weight loss struggle. They don’t understand why I can’t lose the weight quicker and keep it off. Why I can’t stop overindulging in food. They brin…

What's Your Why?

Tap into your personal motivation to reach your goals!

This is by far one of my favorite quotes, it's one that Jillian Michael's mentions many times during her workouts.  It sticks with me, because it's very true.  "When you know your why, you can endure any how".  It gets me through my 6am workouts EVERYDAY, everyday.  I wake up some days and think to myself, I should just sleep in, I can do this later, I can skip a day, but then I hear this in my head- I'm reminded I can do this if I want to hit my goals.  I like the way it makes me feel to hit those fitness goals each morning.  closing those Apple Watch Rings every day.

The meeting room topic on this went over the fact that we all know what we want to do....lose weight and keep it off!  But it's also important to know why you want to do it.  What's propelling you to make a change?  What pushed you to start your journey?  What is the positive outcome you're envisioning?  The more detailed your &…

FREEDOM!

Exploring Weight Watcher's new program Freestyle.  How it gives you more flexibility to enjoy how you eat, move and lose!

So Weight Watchers tells us "Eat the foods you love!"  The newest program by Weight Watchers is their WW Freestyle.  It expands their zero point food list to allow you to eat satisfying, protein rich foods without tracking them.  The program also encourages you to move in ways that inspire you and give you joy. 

The WW Freestlye program continues to use their successful Smartpoints system to guide you towards making healthier choices, though no foods are off limits.  Each food has a SmartPoints value including that list of zero points food (that is currently over 200 items!).  Something else that is new is that you are able to carry over up to 4 unused points per day that go into you weekly SnartPoints budget.

Weight Watchers makes a few suggestions about working the new program to it's fullest.  The first is to start with zero points base.  Layer…
