How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count the WW Points


I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamond. ~Mae West



I have jumped on the Weight Watchers Online Plus bandwagon. Some friends of mine have been following the online program and have been very successful losing weight. I don't need to lose a large amount of weight but I'd love to lose 10-15 lbs. I think most importantly I need to be accountable for the food I eat. I like the WW method of counting food points and having a certain X amount a day. If my exercise activities (fit points) add up, then I get to use those as additional food points.

For my height and weight, I am allowed 30 Smart Points (food points) a day. 30 Smart Points doesn't sound like a lot but I'm learning to make smarter choices. Most fruits and vegetables are 0 Smart Points. I've been eating a lot of salads and apples. I allow myself a tiny piece of chocolate a day. (I consider this medicinal!)

My husband's company is having a fancy Christmas party in early December. I'm hoping to reach my goal by then. And buy a new dress. ♥

  1. Hi Gina!

    Good luck! I follow WW off and on, just on my own. I have been enough times that I have all the books . . . what dos that tell you?! Over the past 3 months I have lost 21 pounds following their plan, and 30 points is a lot of food, if you make good choice! Have fun with it, YOU GOT THIS!!

    Hugs and Love,
    Barb

  6. Sounds like a great plan to be on Gina! I may have to check it out, amazing how one pound here or there adds up to a lot, and needs to be let go, lol! And I agree, that piece of chocolate is worth saving up for and having :)

    1. Marilyn, sadly those pounds sneak up on us too often! And then there's chocolate.
