All right. So, I went back to Weight Watchers yesterday (Tuesday) and faced reality. Today is Day 1 of really committing myself to losing weight. I’ve done it before and I’m sure I can do it again, especially with our virtual group here on Richard’s BBBWW. The in-person group is really good too, with around 30 people at the meeting and everyone sharing their experiences. It’s a bit far from the office, but I have to start going again. The accountability of weighing in is really important for me to stay on track.
I was also given a 12-day free pass to a women’s-only gym a couple of blocks from work. I’m going over there tomorrow to activate the pass. I need to get my muscles moving on the machines to kick-start my weight loss and my fitness.
I was pleased to find that the new WW plan has lots of zero-point foods. Even if you’re not planning to follow that program, these can be a good guide to help steer food choices in the right direction. So, for easy reference, here they are:
- Fruit (not avocados or coconuts; not dried; not juice)
- Vegetables (including corn and peas, but not potatoes)
- Skinless chicken breast
- Skinless turkey breast
- Nonfat plain yoghurt
My big problem, though, is time. The WW plan is pushing us away from any processed or packaged foods. While I’m sure that’s healthier, I’m just not sure how to fit the planning and prep time into my day. Hopefully, I’ll figure it out. Any ideas?
I’d better figure it out! The last thing I need is Richard doing a face-palm in dismay if I go over my daily points!
