The higher points are a little scary at first, but I’m excited to try it. It will be a weird shift in thinking. No more knowing roughly how many points something is off the top of my head (at least for now), and I’ll have to take a look at a lot of our favorite recipes, but I think it will be good. I’m just thinking about all of those out of date Smart Ones and Lean Cuisine meals on the shelves now though! Maybe they’ll go on clearance! 😛

I’ve only read about it online and I’m waiting until after my meeting this Saturday to actually start it but I don’t know if I’m happy about it. It seems more complicated which I’m not a fan of, and I’m only 3 pounds away from goal and I’m afraid the switch will make it take longer to get there. I guess we’ll see…

I did WW a few years ago and just rejoined today. I actually REALLY like the points plus program. I felt that it didn’t feel right to eat so much processed food and have it be so low point.

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVED the way it tasted and did lose 20lbs that way, but it didn’t really feel truly healthy.

I’m excited to dive back in with this new plan and focus on real foods. Plus I’m super excited about fruit being 0 points. Bring on the bananas!!

I’m not sure how I feel about it yet.  It seems like a good idea and hopefully it will work!

I am excited to try it.  I’m not starting until Saturday though when I have my weekly meeting.  I don’t want to switch mid-week.  I love the idea of free fruit, but it’ll suck it I have to totally cut out carbohydrates from my diet. 

My mom is a life-time member and is super mad about all the changes.  She basically lives on 1 point bagel things, hot dog buns, and hamburger buns.  I keep trying to tell her she gets additional points on the new system.  And the point of it is to eat healthier, less processed junk.  But, she hates fruit.  I think some people will struggle a bit on the new system.  But I am raedy to try and it see if it increases my weight loss!
