a change will do you good

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.

Here I am, on the way to the gym.

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.

    Things are more points but they have increased the amount of points you get per day to make up the difference. (I signed up the other day. Before I got 27 points where now I get 35) Plus fruits and veggies are 0 for the most part, even bananas, so gorge on that stuff to fill up. Grapefruit has been my go to food, all the water in it fills me up. 🙂

    Yes, there is that. I just need to get used to the change.
