So my weight's gotten a little out of control.
At my "highest" (since losing weight initially) I was 185, and right now I'm 180. I was down to 149.8 at one point. Come to think of it... that was almost a year and a half ago. That's 30-35 pounds I've gained! It's frightening how fast it comes back on. I know I've talked about this before.
I have been eating low-carb for almost two years, and it isn't really working for me anymore.
Let me rephrase: it would work, if I could control myself. But I can't. I put butter on everything (because it's ALLOWED - actually, encouraged!), I eat way too much red meat, and I was eating at least a cup of cheese per day.
Yeah, I'm aware. It sounds gross, but it was epic. However, some days I was eating around 2500 calories in one 24 hour period. That's not okay. That's definitely not conducive to weight loss.
So instead of all of that... I started Weight Watchers today, this is what I ate:
Breakfast: 2 cups of popcorn.
Lunch: tortilla pizza (basically just a tortilla with a small amount of pizza sauce and cheese, broiled for a few minutes until the cheese is melted).
Snack(s): 5 baby carrots with 2 tbsp hummus, 1 medium gala apple, 1 medium banana, 1/2 bagel with 2 tbsp cream cheese.
Dinner: 6 oz spicy pork spareribs, 1 cup steamed broccoli.
Dessert: light peach cobbler.
After eating all of that (the snacks were all spread out, not consumed at once)? I was at 31 points for the day. I'm allowed 30 for my weight and height, but I have 49 extra weekly allowance points, so it was fine.
I wasn't hungry, I wasn't deprived, it was all very civilized.
I signed up for 3 months. We'll see how it goes. I'm going to weigh every Wednesday, and TRY not to any days in-between.
I need to hide my scale from myself.
