Well I went to WW today and lost 2/10ths of a pound after gaining 1.6 last week. The new plan sounds really interesting and exciting. We all need something new once in a while. It sounds more like the Sonoma Diet or Mediterranean Diet. Fruits and Veggies are 0 points so I can have a banana or apple or melon and not have to count any points. 29 points is the lowest available and you have 49 flex points. The fact that you can eat all the fruits and veggies you want really seems like it will be helpful because I would avoid those in favor of something I liked better, like yogurt. I can fill up on them and have my points with whatever good food I want. They encourage protein and whole grains so it will be interesting. I have a party on Friday and Sunday and I can really plan for those as I can eat lots of fruit and veggies during the day in order to have the party foods that night.

Another interesting thing, a lite beer is 3 points and a 4 oz glass of wine is 4 points. So I'd much prefer the beer anyway. A regular beer is 4 points. A shot of whiskey or vodka is 4 points. I sound like a drinker don't I. Just nice to know the options. So if I go out, I can have one or two beers depending on the food I eat.

I think it will be great! We'll have to make a new team!

    I have a question about beer/wine. When using the points calculator, and inputting the nutritional information for Bud Light, it says it's 1 point. Using White Zin info, it calculates 0 points. I'm confused. (BTW I just joined last night, so maybe I'm misunderstanding something.)

    The new program has not been released in Canada yet. That happens at the next meeting. Do you know that calculation for how many points I will be getting?

    I'm excited. I go back Wed night - I was on recently but I got sick and my son got sick so I missed a couple of weeks. Since I new the new plan was starting I said I would wait to go back when it did. I'm also online so I know a little bit about it. I do know I'm glad I have the program on my Ipod because I think you will need a points calc. for this plan more so then the other plan. I can't wait - I'm glad fruit is free so I can pack lots of fruits and veggies as snacks now and not have to kill most of my points with them. Kinda bummed that bagel thins and vita tops are now 3 point though... Here to seeing less of us...

    Sounds interesting. I used to belong to WW but it just got too expensive for me. I didn't always have the money to go to weigh in but the next time you still had to pay for the time you missed. I just could not do it.

    I'm excited!!! I'm going to a WW meeting on Fri for the first time in like 5 years. Wow, it's changed. Last I remember we only had 35 flex points.

    And if it's true what you're saying as far as it being similiar to the Med Diet, that will be right up my alley. Last time I lost 27lbs doing WW, but I was also doing Taebo like 3 to 4 times a week. Now I have Zumba and jumprope so it ought to be real interesting.

    All I know is that I am going to work my butt off so I can be Sexy, Slim and trim by summer time :) emoticon

    Thanks for sharing. I subbed to your blog so I can keep track of your progress and maybe we can share and compare our WW adventures.

    Keep doin your thing girl. Keep it Sparkin emoticon
