Weight Watchers Flex

I have recently went back to Weight Watchers for the 3rd time. I did it way back in 2009 when I wanted to lose weight for our wedding which I documented on my old blog here. I kept it off pretty well despite two babies but returned in August 2016. I wanted to lose over a stone, which I did, and I reached my goal in October 2016. I managed to stay roughly the same for a year or so until after Christmas when we just got a bit lazy with the food and despite still doing a lot of exercise it’s really about the food for me.

So 3rd time lucky and I rejoined at my old meeting and weigh-in on a Tuesday night, which now has a new leader who I had been chatting with on Instagram beforehand. I post all of my food and progress on my WW instagram (@whatgaynordidnext_ww) to keep it separate from my personal instagram (@whatgaynordidnext) but I want to keep a note of my progress here as well. My goal weight is 10 stone and I have 4 other mini goals to reach along the way.


I have done a full week of counting and tracking my smart points (sp) and as it’s now a different program called Flex this has meant learning slightly new points values for things and some (like chicken, fish, eggs & low fat natural yogurt) have been made 0sp which is a massive change. I got weighed on Tuesday night at the meeting and I have managed to lose 3lbs in my first week. I am really glad I seem to have been able to adapt to the new plan and will hopefully be successful going forward.

Start Weight {01.05.18} – 12st 4lbs [172lbs]

  • Week 1 {08.05.18} -3lbs

Current Weight {08.05.18} – 12st 1lb [169lbs]

Total Loss = 3lbs

Mini Goals to Target:

  1. 5% [-9lbs]
  2. 1 Stone [-14lbs]
  3. 10% [-18lbs]
  4. 2 Stone [-28lbs]

Target Weight – 10st [140lbs]

The first time I did Weight Watchers in 2009 I lost 43lbs and last time in 2016 I lost 24.5lbs so I know I can do it and that the plan works for me. This time I will just need to work on learning to maintain better once I eventually reach my goal, especially over our winter!

I use the Meetings plus Online & App plan as I prefer to have someone else to weigh me. The app is used to track all your points and there are also loads of recipes on there and you can build your own recipes and find out the points too. There is also a barcode scanner which is great when you are the supermarket.

We intend to visit my sister in Dubai later on this year so I am determined to get back down to the size I was when we went a year ago so that I can wear all the clothes I bought and don’t have to buy a new summer wardrobe. Wish me luck!

This is my first The Me + Mine Project post, linking up to Dear Beautiful.

As you know from my last post we spent the first week of the Easter break on holiday in Iceland for 4 nights. This meant we actually managed to get some photos of all four of us taken (mostly by other tourists at some of the sites) that weren’t selfies, although there were still a fair few of those.

Now we are home I am keen to get our next adventure planned which will be a trip to see my sister in Dubai but we also have a long weekend in the Lake District planned with friends and Disneyland Paris booked for Eden’s birthday next year.
