I was back at my usual Weight Watchers meeting Saturday and a couple of members said they missed me the previous week. It’s nice to have people notice!
The meeting topic was about using Weight Watchers points accurately. The PointsPlus methodology results in a value for every food based on the amount of protein, carbs, fat and fiber in it. Some foods like non-starchy vegetables and fruits have a zero point value to encourage members to choose them.
Not only are members given a daily PointsPlus allowance but also a weekly optional allowance AND you earn more with activity. I’ve just been tracking calories along with macro-nutrients the past couple of months.
I think it’s time to switch it up and go back to points.
I ate very healthily this past week … during the day. I had problems shutting down my appetite in the evening. I don’t think I was genuinely hungry or I would have chosen another veggie.
Nope, it was sugar cravings taking over. That’s the real problem with having a little, it becomes a lot for me. Those gluten-free cupcakes from Trader Joe’s were not worth it!
I need to plan meals better as well because a salad does not make a meal every night.
Having a gain is not a fun thing but at least I knew it was directly related to my eating during the week. I was up .6 pound which brought the total weight loss to:
This week is going to be challenging. I have to run errands every evening to be ready to go to BlogHer on Thursday afternoon. Once I get to BlogHer I’ll have to make the best choices possible.
Alcohol isn’t a concern as I think I had only one or two cocktails the last couple of years. I usually use my drink tickets for a bottle of water! I am taking my workout clothes and plan to hit the hotel gym Friday and Sunday mornings.
How did your week towards great health go?
