Sounds like you're right on track with the first step: making a sensible plan!

I believe each of us should do what feels comfortable, as long as it's a sensible nutritional plan. (But am glad you're following SP, anyway! I can't speak the language of WW! My parents attended this year...and truly, it was as though they were speaking a foreign language when they tallied points.) :)

I am following the SP plan but using what I've learned from WW that works. I have found that I really just needed to tweak what I was doing but I love the new food ideas and recipes from SP. I am counting calories now instead of pts and that is a big mind shift for me since I could count pts in my sleep. Thanks for the encouragement from everyone.

emoticon Jessica!

Since you did well on WW, will you restart that diet while using this site or will you try the suggested nutrition plan here? EITHER WAY CAN WORK. But if you're going to continue/resume using the WW points system, let's try to find some diet buddies also doing WW. :)

Starting out babysteps is wise. The site is massive and can be tailored to work for your preferences. That's why it works. We don't tailor ourselves to some "diet". The site lets us create what works for us as individuals.

My name is Jessica. I'm a SAHM and homeschooler of 2 wonderful kids. I've been married for 16 years to a great guy. We live in NC. I lost 80 pds on Weight Watchers a few years ago and have been maintaining that loss until this year. I started gaining wt and have now put on 15-20 pds so I figured I needed to do something different and found SP. I'm looking forward to shaking things up and getting my body to co-operate. There's a lot to do here and I get overwhelmed easily but I will try to take babysteps. Nice to meet everyone!
