Hi! I just completed my first week on Weight Watchers and I am happy with the results….drumroll please….down 3 pounds! Nothing Earth shattering, but not too shabby for week #1. I was surprised how easy it was to get back in the swing of the program after having been away from it for about 4 years. I guess some things really are like riding a bike…it just comes back to you. I haven’t felt hungry or deprived of anything. That is probably the best part of this program….you can really eat whatever you want until you run out of points. I have been pretty good about my choices though and stayed within my points just about everyday and I only used a small portion of my weekly allowance. They recommend using all of your daily points as well as all of your weekly allowance, but sometimes I feel like I would be eating junk just for the sake of eating because that is what I tend to gravitate towards at the end of the day. Hence my need for the program in the first place. #IbrokeupwithBenandJerry 🙁
I have to be honest…I have not made exercise a part of my routine yet….baby steps right??!! I am thinking that I will start walking each morning after cheer practice until school starts and then start walking after school. The track is right there, so I might as well take advantage of it. I guess it’s time to get the pedometer out and make sure I am getting my 10,000 steps everyday. Hey….I think I just set my goal for week #2. I might also look into getting a Fitbit. It looks like they start around $80 and go up from there so I need to do some shopping and determine what I really need from it. I have no clue what they can even do so I have lots of homework to do. Weight Watchers also has their own version so I should consider it as well. It runs about $60 and then there is an extra $5 per month charge added to my monthly Weight watchers subscription. It is cheaper at the onset, but will end up being more expensive when the monthly fee starts to add up. I can sync the Fitbit to my Weight Watchers account and it will track my activity automatically so it’s looking like it might be the way to go. I’ll let you when and if I make a decision on this one.
Do you have any advice on Fitbits?
Have a Great One All!!
