It never worked for me personally (doing it their way) cause it was too much food! lol. If you decide to try it I will be interested to see how it works for you.

    PB isn't a diet plan........... its a healthy way of eating plan. There are no guidelines other than, eat real food and don't overeat. I'm thinking I could use the WWs point plan to provide limits and balance. My understanding of the current program is that you can eat whatever way you choose - you just apply points and stay within your limits. You don't have eat bread or pasta if you don't want to, its not like the OLD program that says EAT THIS in THIS quantity. The current program is totally customizable. If I want to eat eggs, meats and veggies with healthy fat --- I just apply the assigned points to those choices.

    Its like counting calories I guess. Maybe I should keep my money and just go back to tracking every thing I put in my mouth.

    • What macros would you want to follow? 75g c/ 150g protein/ balance fat?
      Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

      • I did Primal WW for almost a year because I was going to the meetings with my Mom. It worked out fine. The points system has been revamped a little to reflect controlling carb intake.I was always the biggest loser of the bunch. I just stayed quiet, didn't eat the grains or their line of foods. I liked the camraderie and the weekly weigh in.

        • I'm not really sure what my macros should be -- I haven't found that "sweet spot" yet so I don't know.

          Paula - that's what I'm thinking....... primal WWs. Just for the point system.

          • I would suggest a live weekly meeting however instead of on line...Just for the chance to make new aquaintances.

            • Only 2 more sleeps without hubby Wednesday can not come soon enough!

              I need to figure out the car rental thing for while we are in Arizona next month. My manager said to try Fox cuz they have really low prices. I should just do it. I get anxiety over stuff like this. What if I make the wrong choice? UGH.........

              Every morning I wake up and my sinuses on the left side are completely blocked. I don't have a cold and I don't have allergies. This has been happening for years. I had an ENT tell my I had a deviated septum once -- I guess that's what is causing it.

              The dreary weather is making me sad Its been raining for days. Yesterday it was so windy too - normally I love a good wind storm, but yesterday was kinda scaring me - don't know why, but I was happy when the wind died down and everything was calm again.

              sent this pic to hubby.......

              my face is looking thinner

              I woke up very hungry........ as in my tummy is really grumbling. I'm gonna go make some eggs

              • Sometimes it just seems to help to have the structure of regular meetings. I lost 70 lbs on the old WW program (late 80's) and, of course was starving all of the time on low fat high carb calorie restricted diet. Of course I gained it all back as soon as I stopped the diet. My experience with LC was much different. Lost 75 lbs and was never hungry. Kept it off for a year without a problem. Paleo-LC should have equal results. Just need to stay away from carbs if you're metabolically challenged with carbs. Hopping someone will try WW Paleo-LC and report back. It'd be great if it worked.

                Everyone's body is different, so take anything I say with a huge grain of salt. There is no guarantee that what works for me will work for you. Your body is the only relevant laboratory that counts for you. Use it to determine what works best for you by doing your own n=1 tests.

                • Hi CP My BIGGEST problem is longevity! I don't stick with anything long enough to find out if its any good or not. That sorta why I am thinking of doing the WWs thing. Maybe if I'm paying for it I will stick to it. And I love the whole tracking and charting thing - since I stopped doing that in the Spring I have been very lazy about what goes in the pie hole.

                      • Thanks girls I decided I was going to grow my hair long before I got too old to wear it this way But I don't really see a reason to cut it off - unless it gets to hard to take care of. Its longer than it looks -- the back is down to my bra band. I've noticed since I changed my diet from SAD to Primal that I'm not getting more grey, its staying blonde. gotta love that I don't color it - I used to but it was ruining it so I stopped about 5 years ago.

                        • I agree with the girls!! You're a damn fine looking old broad!!! lol. I can say that cause I'm older than you!! I recently cut my long hair. Just got tired of messing with it. I always wore it in a pony tail & put up with a clip anyways! I like my new doo...it's easy to take care of...all one length. And I noticed the same thing with the grey hair too! It's in great shape too...so says the girl who does my hair once a month. There are definite other bennies to a primal diet other than just feeling better!

                          I'm with you too on the tracking & charting. I'm a very 'visual' person, so it helps me a lot to stay on track when I can see the progress on a chart. I'll have to look into the 'new' weight watchers. You girls have got me curious.

                            • hubby very much appreciated the picture. I sent him another one that I took before getting out of bed. I'm all sleepy eyed and my hair is a mess........... maybe I'll post that one too! Or not..............

                              I think I look pretty good for being 53 years old.
