I didn’t intend to go over a week without blogging, but looks like I did! I’m back and have some exciting news. Well, exciting for me, that is. Most of you probably couldn’t care less, but I’m sharing it anyway. 🙂
Last Tuesday, I signed up for Weight Watchers Online. It’s something I’d been thinking about for a while, and with the encouragement of my husband and some great feedback I got about the program, I decided to take the plunge. I vacillated between going to meetings or doing the program online, but since it’s a lot more expensive to go to meetings, I decided to try the online program for 3 months and then reassess after that.
I officially started the program last Wednesday, and it was a tough week. Counting points instead of calories has required a huge mental shift for me. I generally know the calorie amounts for most foods that I eat, but I had no idea how many points those same foods are, so Weight Watchers has required me to plan ahead and do research about what foods are the best to eat and what are to avoid. A really neat thing about the plan is that most fruits and veggies don’t have any points, which encourages me to eat those things more since they don’t count toward my daily points allotment (which is 28, for those who are curious).
So, how did I fare on the scale my first week?
