I started Weight Watchers the other day. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a really long time, but I could never justify spending the money. After all, I know how to eat healthy, right?
Well, it’s been almost a week and I am say I’ve been totally surprised at how many myths we’re told about what’s healthy and what’s not. For instance, I had 10 almonds, 1/4 cup of unsalted, raw sunflower kernels, and 1/4 cup banana chips and it was 7 points! I only get 29 per day so I was a little upset by that. But then for dinner I had a huge salad with lemon juice, half a cantaloupe, and 1/4 lb. turkey breast and it only “cost” me 2 points!
I’m pretty sure the rationale behind Weight Watchers (and why it works so well) is shame. It really makes you think “Do I reallllly want this popcorn? this pack of crackers? this extra beer?” But we’ll see how everything pans out. I’m down 2 lbs already, hoping for at least 20. Wish me luck!
