As you may or may not know, at the beginning of April I switched from Weight Watchers Freestyle back to Weight Watchers Points Plus. While I have a love for the Freestyle program, and I understand that WW is trying to encourage an overall healthy, maintainable lifestyle, the truth is I wasn’t losing weight on the Freestyle plan. My feelings for Freestyle haven’t changed, but I felt that the switch back to Points Plus was the right move for me because I had already had success on that plan previously. While Freestyle isn’t right for my body to lose weight, I feel it is the perfect plan for weight maintenance. Ultimately, it’s up to me to make the choices that are right for me, so Freestyle is taking a back seat to good old Points Plus for now.
Once I announced I was switching back, questions came pouring in about how I was following Points Plus when the WW app doesn’t have that option. I ultimately put together a video for my YouTube channel that explains everything, and I decided to post it here on the blog as well since the video will explain it in less time than writing everything out would.
Some of the questions I answer are:
- How do I follow Points Plus without the WW app?
- What do you need to follow Points Plus?
- Are there still Points Plus resources out there even though everyone is on Smart Points?
- What app am I using?
- How does that app work?
and so much more.
Below is my video on how to follow Weight Watchers Points Plus in a Smart Points world. I hope you find it helpful if you also decide you need to get away from Smart Points for a while. Enjoy!
