So I have rejoined the cult that is Weight Watchers. A.K.A. W. W.. A.K.A. Dub Dub. I started January 1st, inspired by commercials of Jessica Simpson, whom I love for being a Texan girl, first and foremost, and then for being a blonde. Secondary to that, Jennifer Hudson, whom I can relate to for topping out at a size 24 before losing a lot of weight prior to her Dream Girls performance, and now looks AH-MAZING in her dub dub commercials.
Of course, I joined for myself. My cousin’s wedding is quickly approaching and I’d like to be in better shape for it – looking better. Specifically, smaller arms and belly! Maybe better looking legs, as it will be a short bridesmaids dress.
My boyfriend is a little concerned, yet supportive about it all. He’s already asking me things like “how many points do you have left today,” but he’s made it pretty clear he doesn’t want to know the PointsPlus values of his own food (for reasons we won’t get into on the internet ).
So far, I’m pretty happy with the program. PointsPlus values are calculated by “rewarding” a food for having protein and fiber, while “punishing” it for having fat and carbs. Fruits and vegetables are zero points (for the majority of them), so long as you don’t have a banana fest or something (eating zero-points food without being hungry).
The online and mobile tools are making the program kick off to a great start. I decided not to do meetings, even though I believe I’d get some value out of them. I’m just so busy as it is, and would rather spend that time doing something else.
I will keep you all posted on progress!
I will keep you posted on how it goes.
