Weight Watchers New Momentum plan
Well today when I went into my e-tools, I found out that they were releasing the new information about the new plan that starts next week. My leader said we will learn all about it at our next meeting. There is a lot of information on the e-tools right now which I get because I buy the Monthly Pass. While there are a few changes, I feel like it is really a whole lot of the same as FLEX was with a little bit of CORE added in. The only thing of HUGE difference I can find is that now we are going to be focusing on Filling Foods. They want you to eat foods that are more filling. You still get Weekly Points but you have to use all of those before you can use your activity points and from what I read online you can once again bank activity points for the week. This means that you can get 3 Activity Points on Monday and not use them until Saturday after you have used all of your Weekly points. I kind of liked the idea of using them on the day you earned them, but okay. Now it seems any liquid with water in it can be counted in the 6 8 oz glasses a day, although they say water is best. So, my initial reaction, I like that we get a change and it is really similar to the old Flex plan. Also, if you liked CORE, they have a program where you do not have to track points all week too. I did not read much on that because I have never done CORE. So, all in all, I can't wait to go to my meeting on Tuesday to find out more. I just really wish Weight Watchers would have waited until after the Holidays to start a new program, but oh well.
