Hi there. Just thought I’d give you all a quick update on how it’s going so far since I started Weight Watchers 2 days ago. I know it’s only been two days, but I think updating here regularly will help keep me on track and accountable. These first 2 days have been pretty easy as far as keeping track of my points and not going over them. I haven’t felt too awful hungry, though right now I am kind of hungry…but it’s midnight so there’s no way I’m going to eat this late at night. I’ve got my water by my side, and I know as soon as I go to bed, I will be fine.
The last two days I’ve done pretty good as far as healthy choices go. I usually have a high fiber bar and coffee for breakfast, then about 11 or so I might have a bowl of oatmeal. I really enjoy cereal but haven’t had any yet. I know I should buy skim milk, but just haven’t yet, so I haven’t indulged in cereal, other than oatmeal.
I’ve chosen some fruits and veggies over other snacks and I only had one of my famous tacos, that my hubby actually made…lol. But, they are 9 points each, and one is plenty. Before I started WW, I actually began thinking about portion sizes a lot. I don’t know why in the world we think we have to eat so much. I think the fast food industry has fooled us into believing we have to eat a lot in order to be satisfied. Balonie!!! If you eat smaller portions of food throughout the day, not only do you keep your metabolism going, but you also get a lot more variety. I love eating a small, healthy snack and then a couple hours later, another one. I feel more energized and I love the added variety I get.
Anyway, I’m feeling pretty good about myself…oh except for the lack of exercise. Really gotta get back at that, back on my schedule.
How are you doing at your weight loss or other goals?
