Week 3

I finally caved.  No I didn't cave to temptation, and gorge myself with piles of chocolate.  I caved to returning to Weight Watchers.  I had not been inside a WW meeting house in at least 6 years.  I am what is called a Lifetime Member.  When a WW member achieves their weight loss goal, they attain the status of Lifetime Member.  This is something you keep forever, even if you go far beyond your goal like I did.  The benies of Lifetime membership is that as long as you keep with in 2 pounds of your goal you can go to the meetings for free.  I was free for 11 years.  Now I have to pay again, but I don't have to pay for missed meetings.  Another benie. 

My first week was hard at first.  I was ravenous for the first couple of days.  It was not easy at all.  On Friday, I did my usual shopping and I bought some healthier foods and treats that fit into the program.  Now here is a question, why does it cost so much more to eat healthy!?  I digress.  Armed with these new food items, I was able to stay satisfied.

Here are a few of my weapons of choice:

Thomas English Muffins Better Start:  whole wheat.  100 calories zero fat and 8 grams of fiber.  I get to eat the whole thing for one tiny point!

Orowheat Whole grain 90 calories per slice, 1 gram of fat and 3 grams of fiber.  Two slices is 2 points instead of one slice being 2 points.  Nice.

And finally skinny cow!  These are awesome ice cream bars and ice cream sandwiches that are high in fiber and low in calories.  Making them satisfying and very low in points!  A skinny cow fudge bar has 4 grams of fiber and no fat.  It is 1 point. Trust me they are yummy!

Now my official WW weigh in is tomorrow, but I will give you my bathroom weigh in of today.  Come back tomorrow afternoon and see the comparison.

Pounds lost: THREE
