Well here we are! As promised I am here with an update on how my first full week of being on the Weight Watcher’s Points Plus system has been.
All week I’ve been tracking my food and making sure I’m active at least four days a week so I can keep my allowance points for my getaway to the Cape this weekend and I’ve been staying on track for the most part. However, on Wednesday I was just sort of bummed out, really slumming around and fell off the wagon towards the end of the day but I got right back on track soon after and have been kicking butt again.
What do I think of system? It is simple and easy to follow, points in and points out. It can be a bit nerve racking to have to keep track of everything and making sure you stay within your points but I’ve found that being active and getting those active points really gives you some wiggle room to snack or have a beer or two.
I won’t lie, I am going to keep track of what goes in and out this weekend but if I slip or have too many beers I’m not going to worry about it. I think that this plan can be a sustainable way of losing weight because you aren’t cutting out carbs or fat or only eating 1,000 calories a day. Weight Watchers encourages you to eat good foods such as fruits and veggies because they have zero points (besides potatoes, corn, and a few others).
I feel good, I am sleeping better, and I am actually enjoying this process. I tried on bathing suits the other day and could see the difference in my waist then what it was a month ago. I’ve been making good strides in the health department and I am confident that joining Weight Watchers was a step in the right direction.
