WW, Here We Go

Well I did it, I took the plunge yesterday and joined Weight Watchers again.  Pretty ballsy since I ate a piece of coffee cake for breakfast and then went wine tasting, but I tracked everything like a good girl, and still managed to do pretty well!  I swear, they have changed their program or the way they assign points.  Before when I was on WW, I was totally starving all the time and it pissed me off, which is why I stopped.  Today I was having to add in random foods just to hit my daily goal!  Today was the first great eating day I've had in a very long time, and I am very proud of that.  I ate so many whole foods, lots of fruits and veggies, and avoided the steak fries in the cafeteria.  I found myself not feeling like I was hungry all day, and also not being my wonderfully grouchy self!  I like the idea of most veggies and fruits being 0 points, since you should never be punished for eating those in my opinion.  I definitely filled in my meals with a lot of those today, as I should be!

Of all my meals today, I was most excited about my afternoon snack.  It was a ton of mixed berries, mint, basil and pineapple with a scoop of cottage cheese.  It's normally the time I would snag a couple of Kit Kats from the breakroom, so this was definitely the better choice, and it actually tasted better!  I need to be more consistent about bringing snacks like this so that I don't get grumpy and hungry.

No run today, but my hubby and I are going to take advantage of the weather and take a nice long walk.  My knee is still being an a-hole and giving me that weird pinching sensation, so I want to give it one more day.  I'm just going to run on it tomorrow and see what happens.  At this point, I can't afford to lose any more time, I HAVE to start getting those miles in.


  1. I just joined WW again last night!! I haven't even blogged it yet or told anyone so you're the first to know. Don't you feel sooooo special? I'm doing the online. Many years ago, I did meetings and actually became a lifetime member but ever so slowly it crept back on. So annoying!

    1. I am actually liking the program so far. I have done it on and off in the past, but I always felt grumpy and hungry. This feels a lot different, and I haven't really felt hungry at all. The 0 points for veggies and fruits really helps. I am doing the online version too, I'm way too shy for the meetings! Good luck, and I know you will do awesome!!
