Ok I officially HATE simple start! UGH!!!! I feel so confined. I want to eat my activity points! Ok I cheated and ate mine yesterday. I was hungry!!!!! Seriously I like counting points so much more. Yes I am eating more whole foods, but I miss my chicken sausage! So yeah I think simple start and I are going to break up next week.


Ok this vent comes from being hungry, exhausted, and nursing every 2 hours. So maybe I am not the best judge of this part of the program.

Thanks. I'm crossing my fingers and toes and eyes and everything else that I can get off the pred once I start Humira, but it doesn't look good, at least not in the short term. So my focus has switched from losing weight to just not gaining more. And yes, I drink water like a camel. I have a 600 ml Camelbak bottle that I fill up 4-5 times a day. Thank goodness for the various Mio, Crystal Light, Dasani, etc water flavoring drops, because the water here in Florida isn't the best tasting.

So Smart Start is getting chucked in the morning. I realized it is affecting my milk supply. I am not going to go there again, had supply issues with DS #2. So off to counting points in the morning. I learned a lot. I am glad I did it for a few days, but it is not working for me. Another reason why I love WW. It is flexible.

I didn't even try it when I started in January, I just started points.

I am back to counting points. I added a few carb snacks to my diet last night and ate a little more protein. My milk supply was up this morning, so I am sticking with counting points.

I think it is best to do what works for you, I thought the simple start was resricting for me, sometimes we go out to eat, and I can at least eat what I want, even in moderation. Good luck!!!

Has any one been watching The Chew and their search for a WW Chef? I saw them today, and there were some great dessert ideas for 8 pts as indulgence. The final winner is next week, and I am excited to see what recipes come out of this.

I didn't get past planning my meals for the first day. Simple Start was definitely NOT for me. It was like planning a diet. I don't feel like I am dieting with PP but with SS it felt that way from the moment I opened the book.

Down 2 lbs this week but still working off the Christmas gain. Geesh, one week of eating has taken five weeks so far to fix. Still have .4 to go to reach my pre-Christmas weight.

I'm back to counting points too as I felt too restricted on SS and hated that things like bread had to be WW bread. I like normal everyday food that suits the whole family but in sensible amounts and I like my treats to be worth it not wheetabix

I actually enjoyed it for the first couple of days. It was not being able to eat what works for my current diet that was irritating. And not being able to eat my activity points. If I was able to eat my activity points I probably would have been able to stick with that version longer. Well I feel great and my milk supply is up. So yay for counting points!

Hi guys! I went to my meeting today and was down 1.4. I'm very happy since I was up last week after 2 great weeks so I was able to bounce back and lose it all and then some. I am doing Simply Filling, not Simple Start.

Your body was obviously not doing well at the level of food you were eating {{hugs}}. Did your leader give you more indulgence points? As a nursing mother, especially one who is exercising and earning APs, really needs more food than a non nursing mom does. I really like Simply Filling so I probably would have gone ahead and eaten my APs.

I did! I'm a rebel that way. With counting points I get 14 extra points a day. They work out perfectly. Usually I use them for the protien or extra carbs. Happy baby and Happy mommy. And congrats on your loss!

Why couldn't you eat your activity points?

In January I went to four meetings in different areas and had four different leaders explaining SS (along with "my" leader's explanation), and although the quick version is not to eat APs, that's for the newbies. New people want to start off simple, and they think that tracking and eating APs isn't simple. It's also why thy say "7 indulgence points a day" rather than "49 weeklies to eat as you wish". If you aren't a newbie (or resent being treated like a child who can't figure things out, as I would feel) eat the APs!

Doesn't sound like the food works for you though, and I get that since it wouldn't work for me either. It's why I have never tried any of the "eat to satisfaction" plans the ever had. If I could do that successfully I wouldn't be here, and most of the foods on those plans don't fit with what I eat.

I had my first weigh in today since vacation. It has been a month since I joined and I have lost 6.6 lbs. I think that is pretty great considering I ate what I wanted for the last few weeks.

I am trying to nudge myself back to the gym. I haven't been in forever! I used to love it, but I just haven't had energy.

Hop everyone has a great week!

Ana

It is just for the first 2 weeks. If I had stuck with Simply Filling I could eat my activity points. You are also limited to only eating 7 pts of indulgences a day. So didn't work for me. Counting points is great for me. I can indulge when I want to and eat any activity points. The eating till satisfaction was helpful, but I wasn't eating enough. The fear of overeating I think.
