After about 2 1/2 weeks on WW I feel like a changed woman! I have officially dropped 3.4 pounds already (and since I am a compulsive weigher know that I have lost more than that – but weigh-ins are on Thursdays). That might now seem like a lot – but I feel it. I have actual energy all day – I get tired at night and want to go to sleep before 1am – and I just feel healthier! I think once the clothes start to get too big is when I will really believe this is possible – oh the feeling of wearing a smaller size!
I got my first “You look skinny!” today – but it was said by a crazy woman who is 9 months pregnant and obviously dillusional – or blind! haha! Love you, Kerri! I am FAR from skinny – but I am starting to be able to visualize the skinny girl that is hiding in this flabby body.
With all that said, I have to tell you what I LOVE most about Weight Watchers! I LOVE the freedom it gives you! WW is all about choices and flexibility. This weekend Alan and I had a little “get away” or a mini “stay-cation” – and when I am on vacation the last thing I want to worry about is food. In fact, half the fun of a vacation is enjoying great food. Thursday night we went out for sushi – which I learned is only 2 points for 4 pieces, wine is 3 points and yes – I indulged in a couple of small spring rolls too. The next morning I blew the rest of the week’s “Flex Points” (extra points to use or not) and tasted a tiny bit of heaven. Alan and I had the most decadently sinful blueberry and ricotta pancakes at Smoke – the restaurant associated with the Hotel Belmont where we stayed. Knock me over with a feather – these things were AMAZING!!! I enjoyed every last point! But because I planned ahead – I was still sticking to the program!
Leave it to me to blog about fattening foods in a post about losing weight – but it really is relevant! I am the same way about food as I am shopping – if I deprive myself for too long I will binge. So, this weekend was my time to indulge a little and now I am back on the wagon.
Off to dream about those pancakes.
