My first meal was a Sunday pot roast dinner. You go back on the diet. The newest program, launched in , is dubbed Beyond the Scale. If you are using the new SP, then the 6-count ones are 4 points each, not 1. Any suggestions from you ladies who also hate it…what are you doing now?

My weight loss stopped completely! I am not a fan. I went to iTrackbites, they are able to have almost all the Weight Watchers plans to pick from.
But, I am happy for those who are having success. I signed up for 3 months right before they started freestyle. Any suggestions from you ladies who also hate it…what are you doing now? You can go back to SmartPoints. I started my first 2. I was ok with that. It sucks I could probably do that on my own but I like the app and the daily count holding me accountable for what im eating. I would like to see them give the simple option for 2 apps freestyle app or the previous app.
This would make me very happy. Since they already have the hardware for the old app let us have a choice to what suits our lives best.
I did the WW points when it first came out. I lost 20 pounds and was happy with the program. I have been on freestyle for 3 months.
If I have any fat or sugar, even in small amounts, my points are gone for the day. I keep track of my calories on fitness pal and many times the calories are low and the WW points are high. I stayed on it for three months. I lost 13 pounds. Happy for the loss but I lost 24 in the 5 months before by using Fitness pal.
Not a fan of the new program. I have gained 15 on the new program. I had great success on the old one.. Eat a chicken breast as a snack?? I am really considering dropping my membership, and using that money for a yoga program. I also hate freestyle. I lost over 20 pounds on the smart points, then as soon as they switched to freestyle I could not adjust or get with the program.
I find it more like a diet than anything else. Hate it and want to go back. I feel the same way. I lost50 lbs and kept it off for three years.
Every time they channged the programi gained. Of the 50, I gained more thanhalf back. Not losing at all on new program, still tracking and exercising. With the Instant Pot's wide range of cooking abilities, it's easy to get overwhelmed when trying to figure out the functions: The best sous vide machines and cooking devices according to Amazon reviews. Sure, there are healthy-eating vloggers who put their recipes on Instagram, but those sped-up videos are way too hard hard to follow — and when your meal doesn't end up looking or tasting as perfect, getting frustrated is inevitable.
Well, actually, most of the good ones also have Kindle versions, but I digress — it's the same idea. There are a ton on Amazon, but we've picked out the ones with the best reviews — so you can be sure that the books actually teach you stuff and don't make you more confused than before.
There are, of course, the general use cookbooks with traditional American dishes and dinners that even the pickiest eaters will like, as well as books that home in on a specific diet or cuisine like Indian food or a vegan or ketogenic diet. There's even an official Weight Watchers Instant Pot cookbook.
These are your "traditional" recipes that would probably be found on the menu of any American restaurant: BBQ ribs, soups, seafood, bacon and egg breakfasts, the works. Most aim to be healthy and cut down where they can, but they're not specifically about any certain diet or weight loss plan.
If you've got picky eaters in the house, these are the books you'll want. After reading that this book has 1, days of recipes, do you really need any more convincing? You could have a different food experience every single day for over two years.
With the Instant Pot Cookbook: Seriously, even the world's pickiest eaters me included can find multiple things to eat in here. The variety of recipes is outstanding. There aren't a thousand recipes, but in the back of the book there are menu plans for days which matches the title of the book. Cruising through the cookbook makes me hungry. Many of the recipes are gluten free I'm cutting carbs to loose weight which helps the way I'm living now.
These recipes are not the same recipes borrowed from other recipe books and pinterest pages. They are different and original. I'm looking forward to cooking them. I'll update my review with the sure to be delicious results. Even if you live in the most divided household on the planet when it comes to favorite foods, this book has got you covered with a variety of traditional beef and pork dishes, soups, vegetarian recipes, seafood, and more.
Regardless of the mood everyone is in, you're covered. The book has a rating of 4. Another bestseller comes in the form of the The Instant Pot Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook — claiming to have sold over , copies, this book is not messing around when it comes to recipe variety. You'll make things like chicken tikka masala, corn on the cob, pulled pork, lamb curry, beans and rice, and a cinnamon raisin French toast bake.
You can preview a good amount of the book on Amazon, and you'll see that everything is hella detailed and laid out with easy-to-understand comparison charts, and they'll let you know which recipes are vegetarian. This is a book officially endorsed by Instant Pot, so you know you're in good hands.
This pot is amazing and I love it. I got it for my wife, but so far I've done all the cooking in it. My first meal was a Sunday pot roast dinner. I've never attempted to cook a meal like this in my life. My wife has always done this in the oven. I was stunned to have this pot roast come out about as perfect as you could get it.
The inner cooking pot is easy to clean and you'll want to do more and more with it with each success you have. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a new adventure in cooking.
Do what the book says and you'll have amazing meals right from the start. You should buy this. These companies will be charged the return postage and will soon stop sending stuff.
They continued to leave the charge on my acct. They said that could take weeks or months and if it gets lost I would be held accountable. Problem is is that so many people open them to see what they already know is inside, just an impulse reaction. They removed second charge and I have yet to try product.
They will help you. Just dispute charges and answer about three questions and they will simply stop paying them and accepting charges. AMEX is worth every penny. Hi Shawn, we have updated our review. Thanks for the tip!
However, we could not discover how much customers are charged if they keep their day trial. Sensa has a 30 — day money back guarantee. I just started on Sensa with a free two month supply from an online offer. You do have to be careful when ordering. I have a virtual credit card so it cannot be billed further. My first dose resulted in a very unusual sensation in my sinuses and inside my head.
I take Cymbalta and it has the affect of taking away my sensation of fullness. The Sensa seems to have somehow restored that sensation. I was as doubtful as anyone about this product, especially reading the ingredients, but it does have an effect on me.
After taking Cymbalta for many years, I am lb overweight. I started it for depression and then found that I needed it for severe back pain. The weight gain has been horrible with Cymbalta, but now adding Sensa, I may be able to control the over-eating. Two months should give me enough time to evaluate whether Sensa really helps me to eat less and lose weight.
So far, so good. April, how is Sensa helping you? I too take Cymbalta and have gain a lot of weight. I take if for panic attacks. Did Sensa interact okay with your Cymbalta? I sort of had a mini panic attack taking the Sensa I think because I was nervous about it.
Let me know how you are doing. Mary, Always check with your pharmacist or doctor for interactions. How it may affect someone perhaps will not be the same for you. Life is short enough. I am so glad that I found this link! April, I too have been on Cymbalta, now for 4 years for panic attacks, and I am just now understanding that my weight gain 40 and going could be related to this sense of never feeling full.
It has caused me to feel like I need to eat until my stomach is bulging. Tomorrow I am going to get my thyroid tested as well as other things, blood sugar, etc. I love my cymbalta though and having no more panic attacks has changed my life. I eat very healthy and exercise daily, and I cannot for the life of me even lose 5 pounds. I am thinking about sensa because it may help with the potion control.
Please let us know of your journey and experiences and I wish you the best! Your comments are very useful. Hi Palma, We recommend for you to speak with your physician before beginning on your journey with Sensa. I have taken Lexapro for almost a year now and am almost done with my first 30 days of the Sensa free trial. I had the same reservations you do but after reading that all of the ingredients in Sensa are natural I figured it would be okay. As far as I can tell the Sensa has had no affect on my medication.
I was just thinking that arsenic and cyanide are natural, but that doesnt make them safe! I purchased Sensa in a weak moment desperate for help to loose weight. Now like others have commented I am past the free trial date. I was afraid to start the product fearing some sort to adverse reaction but so far nothing thank God.
I take seizure meds, high blood pressure meds, naproxin for pain and potassium and the Sensa caused me no problems whatsoever. They do not change the taste of your food at all. As I said before I have lost 6 pounds in 2 months. No other changes have I made. My husband and I both gain weight on Lexapro. I gained 35lbs and my husband gained 50lbs. Chamge if you can. I was on Lexapro and other antidepressants… ALL antidepressant are known to make you gain weight.
With the exception of Welbutrin. When I got off of lexapro and onto welbutrin I lost 20 pounds in two months I gained 30 in a yr on lexapro. I know every person is different but I did find many similar stories when researching…. Thanks for your comment. I have been strugling with my weight since I started on Lexapro.
Did you feel the same sense of wellbeing on Wellbutrin as you did on Lexapro? If the effects are the same I woudl consider switching. All have different side effects for different people. Welbutrin gave me insomnia…. Does anyone know if celexa would cause this weight gain as well? I was thinking of switching after reading some of these comments. When I was on Lexapro, I gained a ton of weight.
I think it was because I felt nothing at all. Eventually I even started losing the sensation to touch. I would rather be depressed than feel that way again. Celexa could cause you to gain weight, if you dont exercise daily,eating more fiber, taking medication the same time is important. I am taking sensa, lose 7 pounds with diet and exercise.. No late night eatingll. Thanks for the insight to Sensa.
Too bad…I was really surprised to learn that Lexapro causes weight gain! I have a friend who is on Pristiq and she has had phenomenal success. This in-activity has cause serious weight-gain lbs now from This site with the feed-back is wonderful.
Thank you all for your comments. I was excited about Sensa, now, although disappointing, know better than to hang on to that hope! You can contact the makers of Pristiq for help paying for the drug.
I am in the same predicament as you gaining a lot of weight. And I am an emotional binge eater to boot. As soon as I started Sensa that stopped. When I binged, it was to make me fill full and fill that empty pit. Lost 12 pounds in 2 weeks. Cheryl — I started on antidepressants after losing my husband in and am still on them. Have been thru and still sometimes have the lying on the couch not wanting to do anything. It helped me to go to grief groups. I went to several in the course of about 3 years.
It was very helpful to be able to talk about the pain of your loss. They think you should be able to snap out of it. It is possible to grow into your new life. It goes on with you. Hang with people who understand and can support you. Much good fortune I wish to you! I battled with depression throughout my life, and during my pregnancy with my 4th child it skyrocketed.
My cousin, sister, and son who is 16 and is bi-polar and his psych. She started omegas immediately, and is actually so much more fun to be around! I now take omega and feel even better. As far as weight loss, every person should see an endocrynologist. Just weighed yest and have lost 70 lbs since March! Cheryl, How are you doing now? Have you tried the groups as Anne suggested?
This may sound crazy but I wrote earlier about Curves. I just started and find it easy and helpful, it is designed for only thirty minutes you use equipment for muscle toning and in between there are spaces to do other exercises which can be aerobic if you want like walking in place, some are arm exercises you can do what you want, you spend only a few minutes at a time at each station and go around 3 times for the 30 minutes.
Then they have an area for stretching afterwards again you can do or not do these or some or all. Check for specials in your area. Saw something on line through Sparkspeople. I never liked the idea of paying to exercise and I try not to think of the cost per year!
Hope you are feeling better. Check with your pharmacy about prescription assistance program PAP. You will likely have to have proof of your income. However it will just depend on if you can tolerate it or not. Yikes- just the thought of having to excercise an hour a day 7 days a week is enough to be depressing in itself. The only thing that has worked for me is Adderall, which helps with both my mood and my ADD, and no weight gain.
Wellbutrin made me balloon! I stopped taking it immediately and switched to something different. I recently went off all pills, including my birth control. I had hoped for weight loss but so far, no luck! Are you kidding, Richard?
Sorry I have to agree with Richard. All caps is considered rude. I agree with Danielle, not everyone knows to shut off the cap locks, it could have been an accident. I find it rude that with this topic you had to pick that to complain about. I agree with Danielle and Anonymous. We are only Human, not perfect like you seem to think you are. Spelling and Grammar are not the real subjects here! Seriiously Richard and Randi -Who made you the typing gods.
If this is the best you have to complain about life must be pretty good! All caps is indeed equivalent to yelling. I agree with Anonymous. Quit judging form over substance. The person asked a reasonable question. Just weaned myself off Celexa because I gained over 65 pounds on it.
It also made me not want to get up off the couch. Um… This had to do with Sensa and its interactions with other meds. When did it become a typing course? Good luck, All, with the weight loss and depression issues. It may be only one step to the summit. I just bought this product from gnc and took it last night and I am feeling so sick right now, it kept me up all night. I have been sneezing all night.
I might be allergic to it….. I was thinking of ordering Sensa so I decided to do a little research for reviews on this product. I am so glad I did! Thank you for saving me from an expensive mistake! Who needs the placebo effect? I could either will myself to lose weight or have someone hypnotize me.
Thanks everyone for helping me and others make an informed consumer decision. Thanks for all the feedback, I just saw their commercial — sounded to good to be true — and it obviously is from all the feedback. And it really works! If you actually track your food. Diet and exercise, who would have thought! Good luck on them not charging your credit or debit card. If you use your debit it comes down to cancelling the card and getting a new one.
Once they have that card good luck on getting them to cancel…. I had a stroke just over a year ago and was told Sensa would not hurt me. Had my neurologist explain to me why I needed to stop immediately. Just eat better food choices. Works for most of us. In 5 days I lost 4 lbs…but by day 2 I had the worst stomach cramps and diarreah… it just never stopped. Today I woke up so nauseous, the feeling was worse than the worst hangover I ever had with severe stomach cramps and constant vomitting.
I also had horrible cold sweats… I returned my product today…C I would not recommend Sensa for anyone. However considering I have had severe problems with ulcers I decided NOT to after reading your review.. Thank You and God Bless! Ruby, I too have stomach ulcers but sensa is not irritating them.
I use my ulcer meds daily along with it. I think what they are referring to is nausea. I am having very very mild nausea which I think is my bodies way of averting me away from food. It is totally manageable though. I love sensa and highly recommend it! Bad feet, knees, etc. Get up off the couch and stop eating crap. Break a sweat and workout and if u dont have time, make time or be over weight forever. I never knew how many people in america were as ignorant as I found out working there.
Your grammatical errors and typos are seriously affecting your credibility. It would help if you would not insult people as well. Lisa, while I do agree fully with your comment, one thing spellcheckers do not do well yet, is grammar. I was told I was given a free trial and then I was sent extra powder which I was not aware of and was told that I wil be charged I agree with Bobbie.
People, please read the terms and conditions! I always do and it has kept me a happy camper. Bobbi, You may or may not know of this, but, I just started taking Sensa and ever since have had joint pain all over…I have been diagnosed with early Osteopenia boneLoss.
Yes, Bobbi has attitude problems! Not everyone can exercise the way they used to and would love to. Bobbi needs to get off her high horse!! I want my money back. I went for the free offer, and okay, I did not pick up on the fine print until I got the package and then read that it contains lactose milk. I have not taken the product and am sending it all back to this company. You seem to be pretty ignorant yourself. Try learning to spell. I can imagine why you no longer have the job.
Not everyone is fat because they sit around watching TV and shoveling twinkies. Also, learn to spell. That is why the sensa people and that quack doctor are sitting on a beach somewhere spending the idiots money…. You have to excecise and watch your diet. It is just that simple. I dont care if you are in a damn wheelchair you can stre ch bands to break a sweat…..
For posting your comment. Specially from previous employees. I totally agree with Bobbi. There is no quick fix for losing weight.
