I am a WeightWatchers member. I joined some nine months ago with little success. There are many reasons why but one of the main reasons is that I was too big for the program. Back then, the most daily points a person could be allotted was 44. The system is based on those points. Each food item or ingredient is assigned a point value. You add up what you eat and you keep below your daily allotment. When I started the program I was hungry all the time. Over time, I never really lost weight and I was becoming more and more frustrated. I got to the point where I stopped trying.
Last fall, WeightWatchers came out with a new point system. Not only are the foods rated differently but so are the people. I now have over 70 points to use in a day. As I kept track of my food today, I saw that my food was worth more points than it used to be. The points added up faster than they used to but after a full lunch and a full dinner, I was out of points and I felt full. I don’t know how this is going to turn out and I don’t know if I’ll lose weight but we’ll see.
