In a corollary post to the earlier one, I wanted to give you guys a Weight Watchers check in. I finished my second full week on Saturday.
The first week I was very good. I had more than 50 points left over including four hours of exercise points. And the hard work showed – I dropped three pounds the first week.
The second week I think I was trying to see how how many bad choices you could make and still drop weight (I had a cupcake at Walsh’s BB party and the next night a bratwurst and almond bread, The points go much faster that way!) I only exercised three hours last week and only dropped 1 pound (I would four ounces from it being 2 pounds but that didn’t count!)
Now that’s still 4 pounds in two week so I do feel good about that. However, these last few days I have encountered some challenges.
I looked on the Weight Watchers website to see if there were any articles to fight PMS binging but it’s not there. Any advice is welcome.
I do think that Weight Watchers is great for making you rethink all your eating. I now am turning to fruit first — since it’s a zero — while I try to figure out what to eat this healthy and will satisfy me (ie sweet or salty or crunchy). I also am aware now of how much and how often I was eating before.
Because you are eating regular food, I don’t the kids are aware at all that I’m doing it. I’m just putting less oil on the meats and veggies I roast and am making more stuff with turkey – like turkey sausages with whole wheat pasta.
Is the candy in your house making you crazy? Is it just as bad in their pumpkins as in the bags or do you feel worse stealing from them? How do you knock out PMS cravings?
Update: I just ran across a story about Weight Watchers CEO talking about is personal weight loss and how healthy habits are more important than discipline. He also talks about Weight Watchers may become more involved in the anti-obesity movement.
