Keep Going Back and Forth

Friday, October 26, 2012

I don't know what is wrong with me. I keep going back and forth between SP and Weight Watchers. I know that if I just stick with one, it will work. SP keeps me more full - I get to eat what I like as long as I stay in my calorie range. I feel much more full on SP than WW because WW penalizes carbs now and I have to say carbs really make me feel full and satiated. But! The thing that makes me go back to WW is that weekly cushion in the budget. On SP if I go over my calories for the day I will feel like I've blown it for that day and easily go off course. I also weigh myself too much on SP.

Maybe the solution is to just weigh in once a week on SP and, if I do go over my calories, try to minimize how many I go over by. I do feel so much more full on SP.

    I did WW some years ago and at the time it worked, however, I have been very faithful to SP since Sept 2011 and I have seem better results.
    I have learned much more about the right nutrition and what my body needs to keep me healthy and strong. Also the encouragement to exercise have pushed me to new limits that I was not able to do 3 years ago.
    You have to find what works better for you, but if you stay consistent in a good nutrition and fitness path you will find yourself in a much better health and looks.
    Good luck!

    For a while I was doing both, until I realized that I needed to be tracking things that aren't covered with WW such as sodium. The last time with WW, I only lost two pounds in eight weeks. Just wasn't cost effective. But I know it works for some people as it has for me in the past.

    I believe both programs work for some people, and others - like me - are not so "up" for the game like Weight Watchers. On SP I an eat anything in moderation and your calorie range will change based on how much you lose and and how much you work out. And sometimes they auto-adjust so you aren't losing too fast.

    Have you tried working with the Weight Watchers team on SP? They use both systems to get their desired achievements. I have never tried it as the whole point system just doesn't work for me. I am more calories in vs calories out type of person!
