Breakfast today was 2 whole wheat mini pitas with hummus, 10 Points Plus.  An unconventional lunch/salve for my sweet tooth: Pops almond roca butter toffee popcorn, 14 Points Plus. Peaches canned in juice, drained, and seaweed in the afternoon, 0 Points Plus.  Dinner was delayed and I was getting too hungry so I had a […]

Hummus Where My Heart Is

Today went very well. I stuck to my points and something very exciting happened. I ordered my WaterRower!  It should come between Wednesday of next week and the following Monday.  I can’t wait to start rowing. I’m very excited about having such a convenient way of getting a full body workout with almost no impact […]

Getting Ahead of Myself 

When I started Weight Watchers my daily Points Plus allowance was 43.  That number has decreased as I’ve lost weight.  Now my daily allowance is 39.  The decrease is gradual, at a rate of one point every few weeks.  The decrease to 39 has seemed harder than the others, but I think it’s mostly psychological.

38/39

The new daily allowance of 39 Weight Watchers Points Plus has been manageable, but I can feel the difference! Today I had a big 8-ounce Noosa blueberry yogurt for breakfast, 7 Points Plus. An apple later in the morning, zero Points Plus. I went on a long walk with my daughter to the library, the […]

Warning: Pizza Inside 

Portion size is such a mind game. I guess we’re supposed to call these non-scale victories.  I wanted to have this for breakfast.  I was so close to doing it that I snapped a photo for the blog and everything.  I wanted to, but it would have been 16 Weight Watchers Points Plus and I wanted […]

Weekly Weigh In #16: 25 Pounds Lost!

As I approached the scale for weigh in this morning, I was thinking about the fact that my hair has grown several inches since I started this diet, and wondering how much “unfair” weight it might be adding. As though that pound would make a difference! The games our minds play. My scale is a […]

Laser Focus

So, leftover cookies for breakfast. Oh dear. 14 Weight Watchers Points Plus. (Don’t worry, I finished the day on plan!) But of course I was hungry by late morning because cookies don’t keep you satisfied. So I had a heaping bowl of lettuce with a mini pita and hummus, 5 Points Plus. Then I spent […]
