Weigh in day. I weigh in every Wednesday, it's the one day of the week where I strip completely and step on the cold scale, shiver and wait. It takes forever for the numbers to pop up (or it seems to). This week was a different week for me...I tracked EVERYTHING. You know, like you're supposed to. Usually, if I have wine on the weekends, I won't track it....actually, on the weekends I usually don't track much. Maybe I'll only track AP's (activity points), and yeah, that's not how you're supposed to do it. So, anyway, I tracked like a good little weight watcher girl, and guess what I found out? I simply eat too much. Maybe I'll share what I ate last week. Oh no, Weight Watchers doesn't have a glutton recap page, I wonder why? ;)
I don't eat bad food. I cannot remember the last time I had fast food. Whole wheat pasta, oodles of veggies, at least one banana a day. Whole grains are my favorite - LOVE them. So, maybe two slices of whole grain bread a day - either in a sandwich or toast. It doesn't matter, I still eat too much of the good-for-you-food. I get a weekly allowance of 49 points to use any way that I desire, that's on top of my daily 30 points. This week I earned 74 activity points, too....and according to weight watchers, you can eat/use those. Well, I did. I swapped and used 38. I consumed 297 points this week! Oy vey!
Back to tracking. I know this works, down almost forty pounds and four years ago I lost fifty. However, I need to lose a lot more than fifty this time around *cough* now give me a donut.
