Well, I rejoined Weight Watchers again this week and so far so good. It’s weird, but being back with WW kinda feels like putting on a really comfy pair of sneakers after wearing heels all day long. I know the plan inside and out, and I know what I have to do. So why do I think this time will be different? Well, since I’ve done this twice before, now I know what NOT to do: I know I can’t snack all my points away on 2 & 3 point junk foods. I’m not a big fan of the 100 calorie packs because really, I’m just too
cheap frugal to buy them. I cannot spend $3.50 on 6 tiny packs of cookies, so I don’t have those around my house. I would rather spend 3 points on two really good really rich Reese’s peanut butter cookies (if you have not tried these yet, OMG go get some NOW).
Also, I know that I can’t just eat by the seat of my pants and hope that I have stayed within my points. There has to be some planning involved. Also, I know not to get hung up on the points. Points are just a guide, and as long as I am eating better and eating less, that’s what my goal is.Speaking of goals, my ultimate goal weight is 145. That’s right at the high end of where WW says my healthy weight should be.
Okay so, here’s the hard part. I knew my weight was up there, but when I stepped on the scale it read…(sigh)…186. Granted, I was wearing jeans and a sweater, but I’m pretty sure my clothes didn’t weigh 40 pounds. So here I am at the highest weight I have ever been without being preggers. But it is what it is and honestly, I’m not that bothered by it because I know that it won’t stay there for long. I even managed a 30 minute walk/jog on the treadmill last night – and it felt good to move again.
And I made a new friend at my meeting – that made me really happy! I haven’t formed an opinion on the meeting leader yet – I think I like her, but she might be a touch annoying.
So anyway, that’s where I am right now. I’ll try not blather on and on about Points and what I ate, because really, does anyone care what I had for breakfast 7 days in a row? I think not, but if I come across something super tasty (like the above cookies), I will def let you all know! Cause I’m cool like that.
