We took progress photos the other day. I seriously thought I was going to be ill. There was no progress. There was anti-progress. I look like a beached whale. I kid you not. No one should ever have to see such a picture. So……
So I decided to make a change. I decided I would try Weight Watchers again now that I am settled here. I have tried it in the past, but I didn’t have success- partially b/c I was having an allergic reaction and found I couldn’t seem to lose weight at that time.
I find that the new points system is ok. It is different, and things I took for granted for being healthy seem to be higher in points than I remember. For example, a piece of salmon is 8 points and a 6 inch Subway sandwich is 7.
I like that they now take protein into consideration, but it makes some things higher in points, and I find that protein helps me lose weight and is more filling. I hope that as I go on this week I will find it easier as I learn what is what and how the plan works.
I also ate WAY over points the first 2 days and it looks like I will eat over points today too. Of course eating over would mean eating exercise points as well.
I started working out again as well. A 4+ mile walk yesterday and a trip to the gym today. (walk, elliptical, bike) I am hoping that I can keep it up.
I also had another massage today- trying to get my shoulder issues addressed and worked out. I also started chiropractic care again as well.
So that is where I stand at the moment. Let’s hope this works.
