So, I've been on PP (online only) since mid September, and to date, I've only lost 8lbs. Yes, I know that is a pound a week, and that is healthy, but honestly, I've lost most of those pounds on weeks that I've been pretty under target with much less significant weight loss (if any!) during weeks that I eat all of my daily points and some weekly or activity.
A little background- I eat healthy. I always have. Nutrition was one of my minors in college, and I know a lot about it. I've never been a dessert eater, I love cooking, and always cook healthy- lots of veg, never processed foods, etc. What makes me gain weight is portions- so even though I'm eating a diverse, fresh diet, I know that I often eat too much. Which is why WWPP is really helping me. For example- being PP, I would eat .5 lbs of salmon for dinner. Now I know that 6 oz (or .38 lbs) is 9 PP, and I'll never eat a .5lb portion again.
Here's the problem though- I still eat a lot of veggies as snacks, and because they're 0, I end up with a lot of extra poins at night after dinner. What do I use those points for? Something I've never really done. Dessert. I'll have a WW ice cream or something like that to use up my extra points.
So, I'm thinking that if I just don't do that- sure, I may leave 4/5 points uneated a day, but I think the weight loss will speed up.
Sorry for the stream of conciousness here. Thoughts please?!?!?!
