Since I have started this WW journey nearly 3 1/2 weeks ago I am happy to say I have been "on plan" the whole time. I have also declared this my LAST time ever doing WW. :)
What's different about this time? Well, I am following the plan with tracking (completely honestly), exercising, drinking lots of water, and eating a bushel of fruits/veggies. The new plan has fruits as free... no really FREE points. I don't feel deprived, and when I am craving something sweet... I just grab a fruit.
Surprisingly I have eaten out with friends as well during this new adventure, and felt like it was a treat and wonderful. The key? Something people all over the world do: check out the menu before you go. For me I try to get to a website that has calculated the Points+ for each food so I can find the best one that fits into my food budget. I choose something that will feel like a splurge, but won't bankrupt my points. Amazing as it sounds, planning ahead does make life easier!
