Hi Karie and Welcome
Sorry so late posting back, I hope you had a good Holiday.
You and I could be Buddies, I have 153 to lose. I am not in the Weight Watchers program, but I was wondering if you could give me some details on how the program works. I guess I could find out the costs etc and join if it sounds good. My doctor just said, "oh don't waste money on that, just watch your calories and eat right and no sugar". Doctors!!!
Anyway, I did okay for the holiday so it wasn't too bad. I stayed at 1500 calories however, my fat grams for the past couple of days have been extremely high. Are you using www.fitday.com
? They have a great program online that allows you to enter your foods that you eat and it will give you the total calories, protein, fat grams and carbos that you've eaten. It also lets you track your activities for the day, nutrition and even has a journal. I can't say how much it has helped me and I've only been using it since November 1st. I hate to say it but I've become totally dependent on it.
I am hoping to do this the right way and thats by eating right. Thats my first task, next is the get a good scale (can't find one) and then to find a good exercise program.
Write back soon!
