How 5 Unique Women Navigated Their Body Goals With WW’s New Program – Brit + Co

As the new year invites us to reset our intentions for 2022, many of us will seek out better health habits to support our longevity and wellbeing. We recognize that health and wellness look wholly different for everyone, and support women's bodily autonomy to make choices and set goals that align with their wants and needs. We look to the stories ahead as inspiration for achieving our own wellness goals, whether that means getting more sleep, feeling more energized, or adding meditation into your morning routine.

Real talk: Losing weight can feel like an uphill battle: fad diets, restrictive programs, plans that rely on Mensa-level math skills to figure out portions. The struggle has been real. Until now. Meet the new WW PersonalPoints program, WWs most advanced yet most personalized approach yet.

Unlike other weight-loss programs, with WW you can keep eating the foods you love with no calorie cap or off-limit foods, and still lose weight (wine oclock? Yes, please). Thanks to a combo of behavioral and nutritional science and a super handy app, youll have a unique Points Budgetyour own tailored guide that is customized uniquely to you to help you live the life you want, just in healthier ways. You can add Points, too, by making good-for-you moves (think: exercising, drinking water, eating non-starchy veggies) and giving you even more flexibility in what you can eat throughout the day. The best part is theres more than 100 ZeroPoint Foodsso youll never be hungry because you can still have all the foods you cant live without at any point. Its exactly why healthier eating feels easierand actually funon WW.

It's not a prescriptive, one-size-fits-all trend or program because, just like people, no two plans are the same. Read on to see how five different WW members maximized their plans and hit their happiest, healthiest weight without ever giving up their favorite foods or drastically changing the way they eat or move in their daily routine. Major motivation ahead.

Between WW and fitness, I have a new lease on life. Before I joined, I was pre-diabetic and had high blood pressure, so I decided to get serious and havent looked back since. What I love about the PersonalPoints Program is its about how you live. WW has allowed me to lose weight and still keep living because I can eat what I want to eat. All the food that I would normally enjoy are ZeroPoint foods, and I feel fuller longer with those items. Im a pizza lover, and am also able to enjoy wine and beer when I go out with my friends. I just track my Points.

The difference is that now, my blood pressure is absolutely amazing. I am the strongest Ive ever been. I can run again, farther and longer than I ever have before. With the PersonalPoints Program, I add Points for working out. I never enjoyed exercise before, and now, I love it. I have the most confidence Ive ever had, and I feel like the sky's the limit for me nowtheres nothing that can ever hold me back.

Instead of all or nothing, I still enjoy the things I really love like craft beer, wine, and cheese and then balance those with healthier options. Chicken, oatmeal, and eggs are my ZeroPoint foods. By starting with a low-point breakfast (usually oatmeal with a variety of different toppings, which keeps me fuller longer), I have more points to use throughout the day. Then, I use my weekly Points, or those I earn from eating vegetables, for splurges: going out with friends and having a glass of wine or some cake or a craft beer with my husband.

My favorite thing about the app is the recipe builder. It lets me take recipes I see online that I want to try, but are not necessarily healthy, and adapt them to be healthier. Since joining WW and losing weight, Im much more active. I ride bikes with my husband. We go on hikes. We do all kinds of activities together that we didnt do previously because I didnt feel comfortable. Im more outgoing and happier than I used to be! I feel so much better about myself and better in my skin.

I love having a very social and active lifestyle, and WW fits in perfectly. I feel total freedom being able to live out the program and live out my life. The program is so flexiblethere's nothing I can't eat or drink. I can go out to dinner with my friends and socialize and still be within the plan.

With so many ZeroPoint foods in my PersonalPoints Plan, including chicken, salmon, eggs, and corn, I can find something that includes them on any menu, so eating out is never an issue. My favorite food is probably eggs. I eat them every day in a ton of different ways, and its so great that it's zero Points now. I love that WW is more about the healthy habits you create, not individual meals or individual things that you do. At first, I thought the goal was a number, but it turned out to be so much more than that. Its about achieving a healthy, happy lifestyle.

I've been overweight my whole life and tried a lot of different things to lose. Every other program was about restricting food or pushing myself into a lifestyle that I didnt want to live. With WW, theres so much flexibility. Its like, We want you to be able to go out with your friends. We want you to be able to have a slice of pizza and a glass of wine when you're really wanting it and not have to say no to enjoying food.

I use my Points in a way that makes sense for me. WW matches what I already like to eat, versus me having to match what I'm eating to a program. For example, I love sushi and salmon, and with the PersonalPoints program, fish is zero points. The flexibility of the program allows me to vary my meals, try new things, and have a more diverse meal plan each day. I can still do happy hours, have date nights, and reach my goals. The program's allowed me to dig into my health and really own my confidence. It's more than just food; it's a mindset and it's a healthy lifestyle. I feel stronger and healthier and happier in my own skin.

Through the tools Ive learned through WW, Ive changed what goes in my body and the energy that I put out. I feel healthier not just physically but mentally. Emotionally, I shed more of a mental burden than the actual weight itself knowing that I didnt have to feel uncomfortable in my skin anymore.

The PersonalPoints Program works for me because on the days when I eat more vegetables and get in a little exercise, I get more Points, which cushions the rest of the week. So on the days that I cant get some exercise, or I go over my points, I know that Ill need to rein it in later. Its allowed me to live my life, enjoy foods that I love, but also continue a downward trend on my weight loss. If youre a working parent or a stay-at-home parent, or now a stay-at-home teacher, WW adapts to your life so that you can take a plan and make it yours. And I love that I get to involve my kids in the kitchen! I love knowing that every day I make better choices. Im improving my health and improving my life.
