  • Hi Everyone!

    I've made the decision to switch back to the Momentum Plan this Wednesday after my morning weigh in. I've gotten some criticism over this but I have to do what's best for me. I lost 80lbs in 10months with Momentum and I truly believe this plan is going to help me reach goal. I honestly don't mind counting my fruit, I did before and made sure I followed the GHG's.

    Unfortunately I have forgotten how many weekly points were given on Momentum, I want to say 35 but I can't be sure. Does anyone know?
  • Yes, it was 35. Good luck! You have come so far and certainly know your body better than anyone!

    If you felt like taking the time, for a week or so you could track the points on Momentum and PP and see how they compare. Just for kicks.
  • Thanks!!

    That's a good idea, I may just do that to do a comparison. On Momentum I was losing a little over 2lbs consistently every week then when I switched over I noticed I was up and down every week. It was never just down and I'm a little frustrated so I'm hoping I am making the right decision!
  • By switching (and double tracking) you'll be able to see if it was too many points, too few, or something else like a plateau that happened to hit when P+ came out.
  • I'm still using Momentum too - I know it works and I have most of the stuff that I eat memorized as far as point value. One thing the new program did was show me that adding a piece of fruit to my diet every day really didn't "cost" that much whether I counted it or not.
  • After you do that, would you post again to let us know how it goes - a week or two down the road? Would love to see that and also if you could let us know if you made different choices with your foods. I find it interesting!
    GOOD LUCK!
  • You have to do what works best for you. I like my results better on Points Plus...but I also make better, lower carb choices.


    Any time I have a gain...it's usually my own fault.



    See how it goes...any minimal damage that is done can always be reversed...so if it is a mistake...you'll catch it early enough to fix it.
  • I am curious to see if this works for you. I sure hope so because you have done so well, I am rooting for you!
  • You can do it!!!
  • Is Momentum comparable to Flex or Turnaround? I have all the paperwork for the Flex and TurnAround points program and hate to invest in something new when that worked for me. I know I should have 22 points per day and I get 35 flex points per week. Is there a group on here doing one of the old plans?
  • I also went back on momentum. I didn't start points plus until jan 1st after i got my materials, but for some reason my hubby and i just like momentum better, actually-we were just talking about it...couldn't exactly pinpoint the reason, but we both mentioned feeling more control with momentum.
    would anyone like to have a momentum thread for us points users?

    rocki-i think flex and turnaround are the same...if i am remembering correctly momentum added the healthy guideline; dairy, fruits/veggies/protein/whole grains, but they aren't 'required'. someone correct me if i'm wrong, but i'm pretty sure any materials with points values are the same as momentums values.
  • Hi Kim Im gonna start Momentum tomorrow too!! I have done a month on new plan and I told myself that Im gonna do a month on Momentum and compare my results hopefully it'll be better than the 6# Ive lost my first month on PP. Good luck with switching back AND Jess we should make a check in thread for us on the old plan.

    I do, I do!
  • ok i will start one!
  • Flex had different point values cause Momentum had the test that was based on your activity level and age. I liked momentum because I could have higher points when I worked and lower points when I didn't based on the test. I don't walk 12k when I don't work. This upcoming week, I'm going to try points plus but I'm not sold on it. I never restricted fruits and don't even like fruits except for like 3 kinds (clementines, green bananas, sometimes apples). But I love veggies. ^_^
