First week on SmartPoints and I am down 4.8 lbs (official weigh-in last night). Then I went out and had McDonalds, which I tracked, and I am somehow down another 2-3 pounds this morning (just on my home scale). It's so weird!
It's funny, I have been a WW member in the past, most recently for a four year run ending last fall. I had lost some weight after my 3rd baby but it was coming back on and I ended that run weighing more than when I started. I was having so much fun at the meetings because the group was just so funny, and I justified paying for WW even though I wasn't losing because of the entertainment value.
So I went on a hiatus for a few months to get my head on straight, and I'm so glad I did. I got a new starting weight so I don't have to feel bad to see a higher weight than the starting weight. And as much as I miss the fun group, I decided to attend a different meeting on a different day of the week. (It's amazing how much more committed to counting you are on the weekend when your weigh-in is on Tuesday instead of Saturday morning!)
When I was about to start I thought I could just do the Simply Filling because counting is so annoying, except maybe I won't do fat FREE everything, just reduced fat until I stopped myself and thought, what am I doing? Why even bother going back if I'm not going to try to give it my all at the beginning? So I changed my mind and decided to count and it's working!
