Joy Wolfe says
I did Weight Watchers in 2020 and lost 15 pounds. I was thrilled, and WW worked well for me at that time. I gained most of that weight back….too many sweets and not watching what was going in my mouth! I rejoined this January 2022 on the new points system. This time, it is not working for me. I have been playing with the same two pounds since January and this is March! I am following the plan and the points and tracking every meal and every snack. I get out and walk most every day that the weather is good. I cannot figure out why it is not working this time, but it is very discouraging. I have also recently found out through testing that I have allergies to wheat, soy, egg whites, cows milk, most fish and pretty much all nuts, sesame seeds, etc. That has made it even harder and trying to cook gluten free, dairy free and egg free has not been fun. Most recipes that I find are higher in points than my points allow. I keep plugging along, but I guess I need a cheer leader and suggestions. Thanks for letting me share!
I’m sorry for your struggles Joy. I know it is challenging but do not give up! Have you done the Holy Mess 3 day diet? What were your results?
