Anyone on Weight Watchers Momentum?

Recommended Posts

I've done Weight Watchers before and I lost the weight that I gained from quitting smoking. I wanted to get back on the wagon, but they are doing a new program. Is anyone doing the new Weight Watchers Momentum program? Can you tell me how it is different from the old Flex program?

 

Thanks!!

I am. It's not really different... they just put the accent on "filling foods", that I naturally eat anyway so for me it did not change anything. Oh, they got rid of the "core plan" though. You can only be on flex now (I think).

 

Still working. I lost 22 lbs so far. I started Sept 1st and since one month I've done nothing but eating : trip to France - 10 days -, trip to mexico - tasting the wedding menus-, Christmas with FIL, Christmas lunch, my birthday, the home-made cookies from the office colleagues... still lost 4 lbs in the last month ! It's really fantastic.

I just went to a Weight Watchers meeting today to join. I was on WW back at the end of 2007 for a few months and lost some weight but fell off track. My wedding is in July 2009 and I needed to get back on track and made the move today. The Momentum program is really not different from the Flex Program they had before - pretty much the same. Tomorrow is my start date! I am ready.

So I ended up joining online, and it doesn't look as if too much is different. The only real difference that I found is that your Activity Points are 'banked' for use after you have used all of your weekly flex points. I kinda like that!

Hmmmm, they got rid of the core program? That's the one I used last year and liked. I am not a fan of the flex program, although, I guess I could try it.

 

I lost about 10 lbs before my wedding, but they're baaaaaaaaaaaaack (Poltergiest reference). So I was just asking my mom yesterday if she would join with me. She said no, can you beleive that! Oh well, I think I am going to join next paycheck (not getting paid for 6 weeks cuz of Christmas makes this pay period realllllly tight.)

I just joined online last week and I agree that not much has changed. Supposedly the "filling foods" that they talk about are similar to the core program.

 

Yeah, about the activity points, I put in the step class I did yesterday and it gave me 12 extra points! Umm, that's great and all, but I'm trying to lose weight not gain it, I don't need that many extra points! I thought it was going to give me like 2 extra points. If I did step 5 days a week I'd end up with 60 extra points a week!

 

Does that not sound odd to anyone?

The Core program still exists, but it is called Filling Foods. I think you are supposed to track points for the first three weeks, and then you can switch to the Filling Foods program. I did Core breifly before and it worked well, but I fell off the wagon sad.gif

12 points sounds a little extreme! Maybe the points calculator was buggy. I know that sometimes happens...

    • Greetings. I'm really confused because my younger sister's marriage is fixed. Now the date is fixed for April 15th. We are planning to conduct a function only with minimal members. I neec to find out a best wedding venue or organizer. I need your advice which will be really helpful. Thank you
    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel  
    • Hi everyone! Newbie here. I've been trying to search for templates for passport invitations. I saw a couple on Etsy but not many options. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other sites that have printable templates for passport invitations? Thanks in advance!
