Weight Watchers

It's a new year and time to make some changes.
Back in November .... Or was it October? I started the low carb diet and lost my after surgery weight of 8 pounds.
But....then there was the holidays and who can diet in November and December. I'm just happy to report I gained zero pounds. Probably due to the fact that
I did zero Christmas baking. Had I made a single batch of
Cookies or Fudge I'm sure I would have!!!

So I started weight watchers. Like I told someone yesterday ...the low carb worked but I LOVE fruit and after two months of no fruit I was craving it major.

The bad part is I'll be more hungry ....but at least I can eat anything ...just much smaller portions!

We just finished supper and I went over on my points today one point.

Here's what I ate'll see where I went wrong ..


Salad with thousand island
1/2 beef sandwich

10 almonds

Salmon filet (with lemon pepper)
Green beans

I know what to do tomorrow :). Skip the biscuit and donut and the almonds and have fruit.

I drank one whole bottle of Smart water (for now all I'm drinking is coffee and water.

Wish me luck!

You can do it Angie! I started WW in October and have lost 15 pounds. I find if I eat something every couple of hours like a cheese stick or handful of grapes that really helps to keep the hungries away. I'm here cheering you on!

I wish you luck! I'm doing this plan also and have had good results. My plan this year is to lose another 30 pounds. We can do this. Just keep on.....

Cut down to one cup of coffee a coffee can also impede weight loss! And skip the salad dressing as that has more calories than you think! Stick to plain oil and vinegar or use balsamic vinegar! You will do awesome!!

Go to the meetings--seriously--go to the meetings. I started last year, have lost 55 pounds and met a really good person who is now my BFF. Support groups really do help--take it from the most anti-social person on the planet..

I am off to my meeting tomorrow for my post-holiday weigh in and I know it is going to be bad news...

So I am with you all the way Angie.

I lost over 50lb with ww so it does work :)

Good luck, Angie. I joined WW in November of 2007 and by June of 2008 I'd lost 35 lbs. It's been over 3 1/2 years and I've managed to keep 30 lbs. off by still watching what I eat (yes, I still eat junk food- some) and counting points. (Oh, and I run and exercise.) WW really works. Just remember, eating right is a "lifestyle" change, not a short-term commitment. You'll do great!

I need to do this too! Good luck to us both!!

Angie, I applaud your efforts to lose weight. It's sure not simple.
I lost 170 pounds with WW. Unfortunately, the last few months I've gained 75 back but starting today I'm starting fresh and over. I know what I need to do.
Don't skip your almonds. They are actually very good for you. For a lot of crunch value though I've been eating baby carrots.
Good luck!!!! You can do it :-)
