Simple Success with the Weight Watchers Simple Start App

I was given a free one month subscription to Weight Watchers to try their new Simple Start plan and write about my experience.Though I was compensated for my time and commitment, all views, positive and negative, are my own.

Weight Watchers Simple Start App success  #SimpleStart

Over the past two weeks I’ve jumped back in to the Weight Watchers lifestyle with the help of the Weight Watchers Simple Start app. And during these two weeks I’ve learned a lot about myself and what I’m capable of.

Now I’ve never had problems losing weight. it’s sticking with a weight loss plan/healthy lifestyle that I have trouble with. But luckily I’ve found over these two weeks that Simple Start is my answer to this problem.

Whenever I get tired of counting points I can simply switch to Simple Start for two weeks to reset myself and focus on eating until I am comfortably full and satisfied while still trying to get the good health guidelines in.

Weight Watchers Simple Start App - tracking each meal  #SimpleStart

Over the past two weeks I’ve found three things that have helped me succeed on Simple Start:

  • Track Everything – Yes, I know that with Simple Start the whole point is NOT having to track everything but for me it’s helped a lot. Not only do I see a pattern in my eating but I also see when I’m hungry and when I’m just eating to eat. Mindless munchies come at night and I’ve simply been grabbing a bag of carrots instead of the cookies I want to be indulging on. By keeping track of this I can help ward off the munchies by keeping myself busy during those times.
  • Drink Water! – Of course this is a big one. On Weight Watchers it’s recommended to have at least 5 8 ounce glasses of water but while I’ve been sticking with 64 ounces a day I’ve found that I tend to be less hungry. Perhaps it was really thirst and not hunger before?
  • Walk Daily – Mental health is a huge part of weight loss for me. And in an effort to gain a little more me time I’ve taken up walking. For the past two weeks I’ve gone on 3+ mile walks each day. Not only is that time for me to regroup and relax but I’m also getting my activity in for the day!

In addition to these three tips I’ve found that becoming part of the Weight Watchers community again has helped me drastically. By lurking on the message boards and posting occasionally I feel as if I am a part of a community of support that will help me achieve my goals.

And by having a few friends and family members on Weight Watchers as well, I’ve found support at home too.

The goals I set for myself last week and the week before have been met and now that my two weeks on Simple Start have ended I’ve decided to start counting points again. But when I need that restart I know I can simply switch to the Simply Filling plan and take advantage of the Simple Start app.
