The message last week at Weight Watchers was about snacks. An important consideration in healthy eating is never letting yourself become ravenous. That’s why I’ve written about snacks many times. Here are a few of the tips I heard:
1. Pair protein with fruit/veggie (you hear me preaching this one)
2. If in a car a lot, pack a cooler with low point foods
3. Take snacks on hikes/bike trips
My husband was still out of town this past week so I ate lots of takeout and frozen meals. I’m happy with my choices as I only got food from places that had healthy options like Chipotle, Daphne’s or Panera.
I did cook vegetables at home to add to the meals like these Brussels sprouts I roasted.
I was thrilled to have a loss for the fourth week in a row with another pound even off. That would have brought my total to – 34.2 but I had my starting weight adjusted to what it was in my April 2012 Weight Watchers book.
When I restarted (for the last time) I couldn’t face the big gain so wanted a new starting point. Now, of course I want credit! So, my new total loss is:
This is what I’ve lost since April 25, 2012.
I’m going to have a hard time keeping the streak alive this week as I return from a business trip the evening before weigh-in. It’s a conference where I have no control over the menu for four meals and, I’ll be eating at the airport or restaurant for the others.
I will make the best choices I can under the circumstances.
