Today I am visiting family. This person, who is not directly related, was espousing how WW was superior to calorie counting. This was after a discussion about making chocolate covered strawberries for mother's day.
My contention is this-counting points is just another version of calorie counting. It's proprietary to a company. It's calories inputted into a formula to arrive at a number that means nothing.
There is nothing wrong with counting points if that's what a person chooses to do. However there's nothing wrong with counting calories either. I happen to be doing it this way in order to see how much carbs, protein, and fat I'm eating. Can't see that when I'm counting points.
I love spark people and with the update to the mobile app it's better than ever.
I had to just walk away from this conversation. Because I'm not where I want to be and this person has been a WW member for years and is a receptionist for them and she is at our near her ideal weight, I didn't feel comfortable. I hope to one day proudly state that I am at goal and spark people helped get me there.
