Weight Watchers Simple Start and a New Handbag Help Keep me on Track

I was given a free one-month subscription to try the new Simple Start plan and write about my experience.  Though I was compensated for my time and commitment, all views, positive and negative are my own.

As you all know I’ve been doing a personal “100 days to a Better Me” Challenge. This includes affirmations, staying truthful with myself, and also getting back in shape.  This week I began the Weight Watchers Simple Start Plan. The Weight Watchers Simple Start plan is pretty easy to follow and what I like about it are the great choices available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’m a firm believer that you have to plan ahead to be successful so with the Simple Start plan I chose what meals I wanted to have and shopped for those items. Since I don’t have a lot of time for breakfast I decided on the Yogurt Sundae, it was quick, easy and down right enjoyable! I can’t wait until summer gets here so I can add more fresh fruit. The hardest part of this week for me was sticking to the Simple Start plan. As, I said before I came into this prepared, but with my schedule at work I felt like I could never eat on time and I was always tempted with cookies and other sweets lurking around.



In order to really push myself I purchased myself a gift. You’re probably thinking it’s a bit early to be rewarding myself, but this is something I’ve been wanting forever! While I’ve already purchased the gift I’m not exactly allowed to use it until I successfully make it through the program. Would you like to see my gift? This Michael Kors Hamilton Specchio – North/South’ Leather Tote in Optic White is definitely something to work towards. My husband has put up so I can’t get to it until I’m done. Even though the purse is a great reward knowing that I’m getting back to myself is an even bigger one.


Getting started can be hard but the Weight Watchers Simple Start plan makes it a bit easier. Also, a new handbag doesn’t hurt for a little motivation either. What are you doing to get started?

    That’s great that your husband is helping you. I, too, started Simple Start. I switched to Weight Watchers Point Plus plan after a couple of days because I had a lot of obligations outside the home and needed a little more flexibility. I wish you much success in getting your handbag soon!

    Ok, tell me where you live so I can take your handbag hostage — I mean keep it safe for you until you reach your goal.

    With a prize that awesome, you’re definitely going to succeed.

    And good job on resisting those cookies and other temptations at work.

    A handbag is a treat for any occasion, but it’s extra special when trying to do better for yourself! Awesome job! Maybe I’ll treat myself with a nice handbag after my 2 weeks of Simple Start?!

    The Weight Watchers Simple Start is such a neat idea I love that I don’t feel so much pressure with it. Breakfast is hard for me too and that yogurt sundae looks delicious and so does that hand bag. Can’t wait to see you holding it!
