Hi. I was wondering if any of you with the momentum material can tell me that when I get the momentum starter kit, does one of the books tell me how to figure the daily points I am going to need to acquire? I asked several sellers on Ebay and they kept telling me it was proprietary info of WW. Well, I wasn't asking them to tell me what my points were, just was it in the starter books. I don't want to buy it without knowing this. I have the last two points systems but don't seem to find the book with how to figure my points. I was going to join the weight watcher pass online but decided $40 a month can pay for a gym membership. So can someone please answer who is on the new momentum plan, do you get the info in the starter books on how to figure your daily points?
I also don't tend to stick with meetings because most of the time I go, the leader has only lost 10-15# and that is discouraging to someone who has a 100# to lose. (Please no bashing as I know 10# is hard to lose for those who only have 10# to lose, but still doesn't make me feel better sitting their with 100# too much on my small frame) Also, the last meeting I went to they had let a mother joined with her daughter and mom was thin as a barbie doll and I know that is against the law in my state you have to be a certain percentage overweight. I know they let her join because she had her own program material and when we stayed after for the newbie meet with the leader I learned this. As a parent of a minor, they should have let her sit in with her child, not allowed her to join. This woman was so thin she could have modeled and I am not exagerating. I could go on and on about such things in my meetings but won't.
So, needless to say, I stay at home and have done well in the past. I want to buy the momentum program and start over again except this time I want to avoid as much processed foods as possible. I think this is where I went wrong last time with WW. I was eating too many 1 point processed snacks that you can buy which made me more hungry. I have been reading Clean Eating diet by Tosca Reno and her principles of eating as little unprocessed food as possible makes total since except she doesn't count calories, so I think I need the point system to make it work. I also want to get the Biggest Loser Family cookbook, it looks like it has real easy basic recipes that I am looking for and it includes the nutritional info.
