Weight Watchers

So I joined Weight Watchers. A few of you suggested it. I had tried it last year and I really liked it, but then I got pregnant with Tallet and was not supposed to be on it. They actually offered to give my money back when I emailed them about what to do! That is another reason I wanted to join again.

I joined for 6 months. I am going to try it for that period of time, and if it doesn't work for me than I will never do it again. But I just had to try.

I am loving it so far. I love the points plus system, it is easy to keep track of what you eat and your activity. I love that I can eat what I want, Weight Watchers teaches you portion control. Sure have a whole chocolate bar. But it is going to use up enough points as a healthy meal would, so which one would you choose? I have already found I am not snacking on things I normally would because I don't want to  use up my points.

I have an app on my ipod that is SO handy for tracking points. And it has a points plus calculator, all you need is the fat, carbs, fiber and protien of a food to calculate it.

My weigh in day is Sundays, so this Sunday was 3 days into it. I had already lost 2 lbs! I stepped on the scale 3 times to make sure it was right, cause I didn't believe it. I get a ridiculous amount of points in a day because I am breastfeeding, so I was pretty skeptical that I could loose weight on that amount of points, but I did! I am trying my BEST not to step on the scale again till next Sunday, but it is hard.

I am kinda interested in starting up a Weight Watchers meeting group in Riverton. There has never been one and I think a bunch of people would be interested. But I think that will wait for a while to see if this system actually works.

I am also half finished the 30 day shred. Today is day 17. It is pretty rare for me to get this far into a workout series without giving up, and that gives me a lot of confidence actually. I don't like using the word proud a whole lot, but for lack of a better word I am proud of myself for sticking to it and not missing a day yet!

This HAS to be the time I succeed. I can not and will not fail this time. I have been failing at this game for 10 years and this time I will win. I have to win. I love winning.

You will win! Good for you for going 17 days on the Shred. I might just have to try it again after this baby. I know it works. I'm just horrible at sticking it out too. And Weight Watchers sounds like a good plan too. Keep us updated!
