Another pro-points defector re-starting the Discover Plan.
I am an old 'At Home' customer who is re-starting the Discover Plan today and hoping to get to an initial healthy weight of 11st10lbs. I lost 2 stone on the old points a year and a half ago but then never regained my focus after Christmas and sort of stayed the same give or take a few pounds either side.
Luckily I have all the files and materials from last time and am so glad I decided to keep them and not throw them out when I joined pro-points last year, after being diagnosed with diabetes.
I didn't get on very well with pro-points at all, which is a shame as I like the social aspect of the meetings and the weigh in to keep you accountable. But seeing as vintage points is now 'outlawed' and the leader doesn't help you in the meetings with it, there seemed little point me paying out for dieting camaraderie once a week.
Also pro-points feels so much more psychologically restrictive than Discover, even with the weekly bonus points. I also kind of resented how many points your carbs costed you and would rather point my fruit than have it free and things be lower in pro-points all around. But hey, that's just me :)
I've had a good first day today and am well within my points so just dropping by to say hello. I am hoping to use these forums quite a bit for inspiration and recipe ideas :)
