Saturday 10/9

Postby Serena » Sat Sep 10, 2005 11:09 am

I have rejoined weight watcher's this morning. I was sitting around last night feeling sorry for myself and came to the conclusion that I really need to do something to take back control of my life. I have had success with weight watcher's before when I've really committed myself and they have a special on so you don't have to pay the membership fee if you have a magazine coupon so I decided to join. We can't really afford it but we always seem to find money for takeaway or alcohol so I guess it's more about priorities than money.

I had muesli with fruit salad for brekky and coffee. I had a banana for morning tea and have just had a multigrain roll with ham and chutney, no butter. I guess I'm doing ok. I feel like eating although not necessarily because I'm hungry. I will make some of their points free soup and have it for an afternoon snack. Tea is corned beef - I think we'll have sweet potato and pumpkin mash, red cabbage, grilled eggplant and steamed broccoli and cauli. I saw in the WW magazine a recipe for muesli cookies dipped in chocolate and I think they were only 2 points each. I might have to try them out next week.

Serena, congratulations on rejoining weight watchers (I also belong to their merry little group) I love shocking their socks off with stuff like having a 2 kilo gain in a week. Once I found out they could handle that and not say a word because that was the way my body sometimes worked, we got along great.
The supportive chats are very inspiring.

Brekky
2 vitabrits
and a glass of skim milk

Hopefully I can stick with it this time. The points system is just so much easier to deal with and you don't have to think about it too much.

Ooops don't ask me what I had for lunch. I am sooooo naughty on weekends.

Tonight for Dinner
I had a Weight Watchers hawaiian pizza (at 230g's it looked pretty tiny) I thought oh ow, I can inhale this little thing up my left nostril. But once I actually ate it, I was surprised to find it was quite filling.
The piaaz was worth 7 Weight Watcher points (I'm allowed 23 points per day, with my chinese lunch I think I've had about 40)

We had corned beef with sweet potato mash and it was yummy. We had low fat custard and fruit salad for sweets which I think brought me up to 17 points and I'm allowed 26 points (for one week at least - I'm right on the threshold) so I had some home brew ginger beer which I will say was 2 points. Sometimes I feel like such an alcoholic. And tomorrow is Grand Prix night again! I really enjoy canadian clubs while I watch the race but I think you're only allowed 14 sugar points for the week. That won't leave me many to get through the rest of the week. What if I need a giant Freddo?

You could always let your husband eat the giant freddo and you could just sniff the wrapper as many calorie free times as you like.
