Hi everyone,

I went for my first appointment today and I lost 3.4 pounds and I have been put on the Purple Plan. I hope that's a good thing. I start eating tomorrow.

How many different plans are there?

Hello to all my purple buddies! :)

Thanks guys!

I chose menu plan # 1 for breakfast this morning and was surprisingly comfortable after eating. It didn't look like very much food so I was a little worried, but hey I'm doing okay! :)

welcome sherry! congrats on the loss!
i just recently switched from red to purple. i've been on purple before, so it wasn't that big of a deal to me. i just kinda miss my 1/2 protein in the mornings. :)

Welcome Sherry! I'm on purple with lites too... I found that going from 2 and a half proteins to just 2 was quite an adjustment, but I'm coping..

What was worse was losing the extra starch I enjoyed with the Red plan...

I had a hard time with the starch too. Before I new what kind of bread I could have or if I could even have any we bought freihofer's split top wheat bread for the house. Well a 1/2 slice = 1 starch because it's not lite bread. So I get to have my other half later in the day. I'm fine for now but will definately be getting lite bread soon.

How many different plans are there and why do you change from one plan to another?

I'm not sure exactly how many plans there are, and some of them have different "stages" depending on if you're part of a corporate or a franchise store.. There's red, purple, blue, gold and a couple others I think...

Plans change when you reach certain weight goals or go through a change in schedule and/or lifestyle.. If you start working out hard core, they put you on a plan that helps adjust for the muscle mass you're going to put on.. Stuff like that...

Hi, Sherry!

Congratulations on your loss! I am on purple with Lites as well - and I have found it very easy to get all of my foods in (my dh is on red & he sometimes struggles with so much food) and enjoy them all. Good luck!

Cool. I guess I don't have to worry about a plan change because I'm just a walker. I can't imagine working out any harder than that. I usually walk 1 to 2 miles 3 to 4 times a week. Eventually I will get up to 3 miles but that's quite a ways off.

Thanks Tina. I wondered how it was all figured out.
