My meeting is on Tuesday afternoons, but because I have the monthly pass, I get access to the new Weight Watchers plan materials online tomorrow. I am hoping that the iPhone app will be ready to go tomorrow, but it may not. Actually, I was able to get some access to the new plan information by using the Google Chrome and a URL that was posted on one of the Weight Watchers Message board threads.
I'm excited by what I've heard about the new plan. Free fruit, of course. Plus more points per day and more weekly points, though the points for some foods is going up. High-protein foods like eggs and chicken seem to be staying about the same, but things like cereal and bread will have more.
I also have heard that online members will be able to choose whether weekly points or activity points will get used first. I like that -- it bothers me to dip into my weekly points when I have activity points sitting there. Leaving the weekly bank alone until after those activity points are gone gives me a better sense of my status for the week.
I have not been tracking the last few days, which is probably bad news for this week's weigh-in. I got off track with Thanksgiving and never got back on. I plan to start tracking tomorrow with the new plan and really stick with it.
Our meeting leader asked us to bring a friend to Tuesday's meeting, but I decided I don't want to do that. I'd rather go by myself to my meeting and give it my full attention than bring a WW newbie who might have questions for me.
I've been a little obsessed with this program change. I have been feeling a bit discouraged and I'm hoping to rediscover my beginner's mind with new plan materials. Anyone else looking forward to the new plan? Or are you already doing it and think I'm behind the times?
