Welcome! It's great to see you are enjoying WW and I agree, I don't crave things on WW because I know that if I truly wanted it, I could have it! What a thought!
Anyway, it looks like you have a few questions, so I can tell you what I know, hopefully others will chime in too!
1.) You MUST eat to your allotted Points every day. According to my Leader, you are not to go under your Points. WW is designed to help you lose weight at a healthy, steady pace, by eating under your Points you are not providing your body with the nutritional and caloric intake it needs to lose weight healthfully, exercise, and essentially function. I understand the not hungry feeling, but try to add some Points by using the GHGs. I found easy and healthy ways to add Points to reach my target. For example, add some olive oil or avocado to your salad, drink milk, use real cheese in your dishes. Also, make sure you are measuring and counting everything! I quickly discovered that when I measured things my Points went faster. I would guesstimate 3/4 cup cereal, and was probably eating over 1 cup, etc.
2.) If you meet your GHGs and your Points, you should not lower your metabolism (keep in mind I am not a dr
). Meet your Points, GHGs, and exercise and you will do great!
3.) Don't forget to use your Flex Points, they are built into the program to make it liveable! WW is a lifestyle change, and they know that there will be times when you want a piece of cake or a dinner out. These Points are here to keep your sanity! You can use none, some, or all of them. Find out what works for you!
Hope this helps! Great job so far, and keep up the good work!
Best of luck,
