Default I took a big step....

and went to my first WW meeting two days ago. I was terrified at the thought of having to be weighed but I did it. having been on and off low carb for the past two years I have trouble sometimes with the carb content of things that I am eating. I noticed that some people combine the two, is this a better plan to follow? Also, my husband is not home alot bc of his job so I dont like to cook all of the time. Is there a limit to how much WW smart ones I should be eating? I make sure to get all my water, veggies, and fruit in a day.I decided that I would only weigh myself a meetings so as hard as it was I put my scale in my spare room ( I swear each day I can hear it calling my name). But Im curious to what kind of results you have had the first week and if you were happy with them? Thanks for listening.....Barbie
