First impressions

Mild panic.

Firstly, they don't take calories into account any more? With a billion different parameters like fibre, protein and carbs now being used to calculate it, I'm in a spin about how the hell I'm going to be estimating my meal out in Thursday. Shit!

Then there's the fact that alcohol now appears to be the demon - ummm - I drink a fair amount so this is going to be difficult!

And then there's the fact that my tracker on my phone is now pretty much useless as I can't calculate anything on it any more and don't know how to guess the points.


Ok, breath deep. I'll run with this for the week and see how it goes. I weighed in this morning, I know my measurements from Saturday, and my points for the weekend have all been converted over. I've still got some flex points available for this week.

Wish me luck!!

How's everybody else finding it?

I am not finding it fun. I was on 22 points and am now on 29 - everything is just more points! My chicken, veg and pearl barley soup has gone from 3 points to 5 for example. It's learning what is and isn't a good choice - my poor brain is befuddled, bewildered and be-grumped.

On first look, I thought it seemed ok, but now I am all over the shop. I am now allowed 40 points, which seems ridiculous and everything I had already worked out and saved in my favourites is no longer valid so back to scratch. Lord knows how you are meant to point random meals out (and I have 3 of them this week). Calories are gone, but now you need 4 different things to work out points. Eeeek.

Currently also in a mild panic.
