totally digging the new weight watchers!

I cannot say enough good things about the new weight watchers program! It was just what I needed to get back on track! I have been pleasantly satisfied food wise and overall feel like Im eating SOOO much better!

Some of the things Iused to eat every day has changed though - I had alot of carb'y snacks through out the day before that I have cut back on significantly now. Before I snacked alot on pretzels, triscuts, greek yogurt with cereal, baked potatoe chips, 100 calorie cookies/snacks. Now dont get me wrong - none of these things are bad and actually they all are decently healthy but very carb'y. Before I would have all of those every day - they fit in my points but still. Now I will maybe have one of those each day and my other snacks through the day are a variety of fruits, steamed veggies, celery with homemade dip, carrots and hummus. I tend to eat a more carb filled breakfast with some protein but stick to protein and veggies for lunch and dinner.

And guess what?!? IT WORKS!!!!

This week I weighed in 1 day early. I had a splurge day. And despite all of that... I lost 3.2lbs this week! OMG!

Hopefully I will keep the 1-2.5 lbs/week from now until the first of the year. If I lose 1.9lbs this coming week.... I will be in the 140s! OMG OMG OMG! I havent been in the 140s since like 8th grade! Im 30!

The rest of the day has been jam packed. I hit the gym after WW and ran for an hour on the treadmill and then did upper body, core and abs. Went to the grocery store and completely restocked on my healthy eats. Now G is sleeping and I REALLY want to lay down too but I dont sleep well the nights I nap and I work tomorrow. After TKD today I think we will have whole wheat banana blueberry waffles YUM and a batch of oatmeal banana chocolate chip muffins for the week - super filling.

If you havent checked out yet you really should - I get great ideas and have learned to cook more from scratch with more natural products because of that site!


  1. It's great that the new plan encourages fruits and vegetables - I feel so much better when I'm eating real food! Thanks for the link!

  2. I'm going to check out your link. Glad you are loving the plan (puts you in the minority, from what I've heard!).

  3. That was a problem I was having with WW last year... I started eating a cleaner diet - but everyone was promoting all this processed food that I didn't consider healthy anymore. Not that they didn't agree that fruit and veggies would be better - but that wasn't what anyone was focused on(maybe more the other people - not the WW workers...) so I started to feel like WW wasn't designed for me - although points are points... the meetings just wern't as helpful anymore.
    Hop eyou get down to the 140s next week!! That would be awesome! That's my goal area... I don't remember ever being below 155 in my adult life - so that's very exciting! (and motivating!)
