No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I went to my weight watcher meeting last night.I weighed in at 229 lbs. My leader suggests that I should be 140 lbs so I am really over the top. I had gone up 5lbs from my last meeting. I am finding it difficult to stay on the plan. my leader has given me 31 pro points a day to use with 49 to use through out the week. i know I have enough in this amount of pro points but I still break out and feel I eat what ever I want to eat. I need support in getting my head around this and accepting that I can manage my amount of pro points and not feel deprived. this coming week will be a challenge for me. one day at a time.
I am doing WW online and I know how you feel. I have 26 pro points a day with 49 weekly points. I had my christmas party at work last night and stayed legal by eating my daily points and all but 5 of my weekly points. I was pretty proud of myself. You can do it if you want to. Just watch your portions and enjoy the ride. I have faith in you.
I tried weight watchers last year (but as a broke college student even their low fees were too much for me ha). Have you been tracking your points throughout the day or just at the end of the day? Maybe if you keep track throughout the day you can kind of judge better what you can eat and still remain in your range. I know I have a problem with impulse eating so I'm trying to take a step back each time I'm about to eat. Ask myself if this is going to help or hurt my weight loss goals. I also noticed on WW that your points stretch a lot farther the healthier you eat.
Good luck with everything! I hope you are able to get back "on track" as they like to say in the WW world :)
Hi, I am in WW also. My piece of advice to you (it's just my two cents), but just because your leader suggests your weight should be 140 doesn't necessarily mean you should strive to be that weight. I am 26 years old, 5'9", and weigh 225lbs. My leader told me that I should weight between 140-155. At the beginning I struggled. It seemed one week I would do good, then the next week I would have gained it all back plus a couple pounds. I was so discouraged about the amount of weight I was told that I needed to lose, I felt I would never be able to lose it. What has helped me is planning my meals out in a day in advance. Then I pack some fruits and veggies with extremely low points to help curb my hunger. I also drink a lot of water. It helps me feel full when I get a hunger attack and I know I'm not really hungry, but just my old habits telling me that I'm bored and want to eat. Eat because you are truly hungry, not because you think you should be hungry. And I set small goals for myself....instead of focusing on losing the suggested 70+ lbs, I do 5lb increments. I keep a chart and every 5lbs gets marked down. Physically seeing your progress really helps. As you said, one day at a time. Our mind can be our own worst enemy in many things, including weight loss. Keep your head up, and focus on feeling good and improving. You can do this!
