So I brought my Weight Watchers bible and stuff with me to work today. I weighed myself this morning to get an idea of my points that I have available.
I weighed in at 253.5 pounds. That is a good 4.5 pounds higher than last year when I started weight watchers. So that means I have gained about 29 pounds in a year. Ugh.
At least its not the 60 pounds I gained after I got off speed. That is what put me where I am now. :(
I probably won't START today...I think I have a points allowance of either 28 or 30 daily...I haven't pulled it out yet. One sandwich during lunch is 3 points for bread, 2 for cheese (GOOD deli cheese, not the fake shit they sell), 1 point per slice of ham (i have 2 today). So 7 points for the sammich since i didnt put any kind of dressing on it. Chips are 3 points. I have some pineapple chunks (in their own juice), but I will have to check that out tonight since I didnt look at the label this morning.
I also had one poptart (no icing) just now. That is 5 points right there since its not low-fat or anything. That is kinda depressing.
So, from where I am sitting through lunch, I will have already consumed 15 points not including the pineapple. So 18 points give or take.
Not bad, but I should eat more for breakfast. A measured bowl of cereal with 2% milk was 5-6 points when I was doing WW last year. Healthier than poptarts too. heh.
A whole bagel was something like 5 or 6 points with 1-2 added for the cream cheese. Donuts and Kolaches are out of my diet. I haven't had them in a while and the ones I HAVE had recently have turned me off on them for a while anyway. So it's no big loss.
Need to get more veggies and stuff to keep around for quick preparation. Gonna buy bulk bags of corn/brocolli/anything else that looks good and vacuum seal them into pre-portioned bags so i can drop them into boiling water (kinda like boil-in-a-bag rice)...that way they are cooked through, still crunchy like we like them and still have all the good nutrients and stuff that you can lose when steaming in a regular pot on the stove. we dont have a steamer or anything and this should work fine.
I also want to go through the kitchen and do the points value of most everything i eat. Either write it on the container or make a chart to hang on the cabinet doors or something. I will figure that out tonight or tomorrow.
My 10% loss goal is 25.4 pounds. So 228.1 total weight. Last time I did WW, it took me about 16 weeks (4 or so months). I am pretty sure I could do it faster, but I think that is a good time limit for that amount of weight to lose. And I won't kick myself in the ass if it doesn't work in that amount of time either. It is just a goal. Goals can't always be met.
I have been reading Women's World magazine (weekly publication) for a while. They always have little exercises in there (3 or more). I think I will try to do at least one set of stuff a night (all low-impact and all that jazz)...that should get me 1-2 activity points a day. Which will also help with the weight loss.
Also, no more cokes and (hopefully) no more ice cream. If i dont HAVE it at the house, its okay. Once we have it there, its all downhill from there. Hopefully it will work.
I gotta work now. More on this later as my thoughts develope a bit more.
