Lesson learned on weight watchers...

Being on this weight watchers diet, I'm suprised sometimes by how many points certain foods are. I guess i should know better, but i learned my lesson the hard way tonight. My friend brought red vines to work...yum.. and i figured they would be ok, you know they are fat free, right? wrong. i was good and limited myself to 10 sticks, thinking well hey that is better than the whole bag, which is what i really wanted to do. i figured i would be ok. i was just totaling up what i had eaten thus far for the night and was shocked. 2 sticks = 3 points x 10=15 points. especially, when i am allotted 28 points/day. i guess i will just eat this for the rest of the day. 0 points

Club Smaller Pants

So I'm actually never planning on having legs or a waist this small. This is just not possible for me. I like eating. But I'm following along with Jenna's get fit for Club smaller pants and wanted to update everyone on how the weight watchers is going. So it has been a little over 3 weeks since I have been using the point system and i have officially lost 4.4 lbs. It isn't much, but i can already tell. My pants that didn't fit very well, aka muffin top and back fat hanging out, are fitting better and i dont' feel like i need to wear a bulky sweatshirt anymore. I'm pretty excited and it has been interesting using the "points method" for dieting. i have been able to indulge in some of my favorite items, and then i'm just really can't eat much more for the rest of the day. oh well. i guess that is where you learn to make healthy choices.

i've noticed that since i have been eating better and drinking a lot more water/fluids (which by the way gatorade- 0 points, diet snapple- 0 points) i have been doing better in the gym. Fancy that. It feels good to finally get back up to the intensity that i was at back in jan/feb. I had a lull there from march-may where i just wasn't doing well, didn't like going to the gym, etc. Part of that was related to not eating well (and i think i was just burnt out a little bit).

it is nice to be feeling more shape girl. I was partnered with Kara the other day (very fit/fast) and let me tell you i think i kind of held my own. I mean i was definitely dying in the end, but i didn't puke. so that is always a good sign.

alright, so that's the update for now. i'm trying to work on getting better at updating, but i forget. i guess working on one thing at a time.
