hello lovelies… I’m back with an update on my first week with Weight Watchers, and what a week it’s been. let’s jump straight into the results for the week. I’ve lost 5lbs…Whoop!! I’m really happy with the result, especially considering how confused I found myself, getting to grips with what to eat was a bit of a struggle.
So following on from last week, I told you that I’ve joined Weight Watchers online and had downloaded the app on my phone. Over the week I tracked everything I ate using the tracker. I found this so easy to use; it really is a great tool. You can search foods or input the info from a packet to calculate points. The app also enables you to track your weight, after every weigh in it shows you your progress on a graph. There are some success stories to inspire you, as well as various recipes. I found this really helpful and have loved tracking my meals and finding out how many points are in all the things I’ve ate. Some have been a bit of a shock to say the least!
Following my result I decided to put together a little graph of the points I had used at each sitting just to get some clarity of where my problem areas are. I found that I never ate more than 4 points for breakfast and 8 for lunch but would be snacking a lot or having a lot for dinner. I also found that over the weekend I went over quite a lot. With that being said, this week I’m going to concentrate on ensuring I eat breakfast every day and snack on more fruit. I am also going to plan my meals over the weekend as much as possible so that I stick to the plan and don’t let temptation get in my way!
