Great, welcome back and to WW! So glad your first meeting went well.
Advice? Well, meal planning (just for the day) would be great if you have the time to do it. It sucked a couple times when you run out of daily points and you have to dip in the weekly points, which normally would be fine but say if you had an event or party that you wanted to save weeklies on, you know. I definitely used a lot of weeklies when I first started out but as time went on, it got easier and basically became old hat. Oh, also don't worry too much about the GHG, no one is perfect. Some days you'll hit all of it, some days you won't. I was so much of a perfectionist when it came to that, stressing myself out unnecessarily until I realized that I only am asking myself for the best, not perfection.
I don't follow the program to a T, just a slight modification based on my experience and what I know works for me. I count any additional fruit after I've had the first 5 servings aside from vegetables. It rarely happens in my case though.
I just love WW- nothing is off limits.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
