WW Review Blue Food Plan | WW NZ
“When you have young kids it’s easy to lose some of your identity, but since joining WW I feel like me again, which has boosted my confidence and self-worth. Plus, I’ve got so much more energy and that makes it easier to keep up with my little ones. So, my WW journey is both for me and my family.”
Q & A with Victoria
What do you love about myWW?
The fact that it’s helped me achieve my weight loss goals without feeling deprived. Not once in the six months it’s taken to lose 16kg have I felt like I’m sacrificing anything. In fact, I’ve had friends who, when I tell them I’m on WW, say ‘but hang on, you never seem to miss out on anything’. That’s not only the truth, it’s the beauty of it. You get to live your life and lose weight at the same time.
You’re on Blue – why is it your perfect fit?
For me, it’s an ideal mix of freedom and accountability. I use Blue’s long and comprehensive list of ZeroPoint™ foods to either bulk up recipes when I’m feeling particularly hungry, or to create an entire meal from when I want or need to. That means I’m free to use my SmartPoints to enjoy a meal out, or have a glass of wine or some chocolate. It’s that flexibility and knowledge that there’s never anything you ‘can’t’ have that’s been the key for me.
How important is your weekly Workshop?
It’s crucial. The community I get to be a part of at my Workshop each week is another big part of what keeps me going on this journey. I’m able to get and give support, which is really important. Plus, I find the routine of physically going to the Workshop helps keep me accountable and that’s a big thing, too. And my Workshops are also my weekly ‘me’ time, where I have the space and time to focus purely on myself and my goals. I block out time for them in my diary and treat it like any other non-negotiable weekly appointment. Attending a Workshop always reinvigorates me for the week ahead.”
Has your WW journey been family friendly?
Very. My husband often comments that we all eat better now, because I’m a WW member. It trickles down naturally because there’s always more fruit and vegetables in the house and I cook healthier meals. I also love the fact that I’m helping my family understand more about nutrition and the importance of making healthy choices. I want my sons to grow up with that knowledge and WW makes this so simple to achieve.
3 reasons WW works for Victoria
“Some weight loss programs can be quite antisocial, but not myWW. You never feel separated or different from anyone just because you’re on a weight loss journey.”
“There’s nothing time consuming about myWW. I eat exactly the same food as my family so I never have to prepare multiple meals. And at WW, it’s all about real food.”
“There are so many to choose from and they’re totally delicious. My husband can never tell that he’s eating a WW recipe – there’s nothing ‘diet’ about them.”
