Hello, my name is Kelly and I am a compulsive dieter. My story is not original; I've tried diet after diet; I won't bore you with the details. My newest "lifestyle change" (because it's now taboo to say "diet") is Weight Watchers. It's helped me in the past; so 3 babies and 50 pounds later, I am starting again. I've tried the online version of WW (you know the solo "I can do it myself" method?), but that doesn't last more than a couple weeks; I get impatient waiting for the food choices to load. I found out that the University of Central Florida was doing a research study with Weight Watchers to develop a new points system. I thought this would be may work for me because I would actually be obligated to attend meetings, visits, keep diaries, etc.
Well so far, NADA!! I have been logging my food like a mad person; I've eaten so many grilled chicken salads I feel like a rabbit (if rabbits ate grilled chicken with their veggies)! I've gone in for my 2nd weigh in and I am up 0.6 lbs - WTF!!!!! (the week before, I was up 0.2 lbs). I know that I haven't gained a whole pound, but it's supposed to be going the other way!!!!! Urghhh! I almost started crying at the weigh in desk!
My wonderful husband patiently listened to my venting when I got home and he very gently (for his own well being) reminded me that we had just gotten back from vacation and I haven't started exercising yet. Damn, he's right - I hate when that happens!
So here begins a new week, new outlook, etc. Does anyone know how many points popcorn chicken is? (kidding, kidding, not really :( )
