Day 2 on Weight Watchers

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?

    Mary – congratulations on your weight loss adventure. I have been on Weight Watchers for a little over a year and it’s been great. I have lost 58 pounds so far. I have 24 more pounds to go and I’m hoping it will be gone by the end of the year.

    I know you can do this Mary. Stay positive, stay focused, and keep the final outcome in your mind and you’ll do great!

    Great job! I love Weight Watchers it really makes sense and doesn’t make me feel deprived all the time. I had a hard day on Thursday with my food – kinda went off the wagon so to speak – ugh! But, I am back in the saddle now and hoping my Monday weigh-in isn’t too awful. I have run about 30 miles this week even with all the rain we have had, so I feel good about that.

    Congrats on joining Weight Watchers. I joined about 6 months ago and am down about 20lbs. It’s slow going but it works. Plus I’m learning great eating habits. I don’t think I have ever as healthy before as I am now. Of course, now my kids are eating better now too.

    Looking forward to hearing about your accomplishments.

  5. I eat cereal every morning (I love the Special K cinnamon and pecan cereal) but I will NOT use skim milk – can’t stand it, makes me wanna gag. I use 2% and it’s only 3 points for 1 cup of it which isn’t bad. I’m waiting for your weigh in video…hint hint hint 😉
