Weight Watchers – Week 1 update
Yay! I lost 2.5lbs!!!
So my first week has gone very well. I started very well – tracking every day. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I packed my lunch every evening (salad with something added to make it tasty – olives, a bit of cheese, a hard boiled egg – to the value of about 5 points). Ben was cooking in the evenings and made sure he counted everything. Then on Saturday we went for a day out in France – drove to Dover and got Ferry to Calais. It was a lovely day but it was a very long day and while I tried to track, I lost track when we had a bit of a car-picnic of french bread and cheese and pate while we were waiting for our return ferry. I couldn’t access the Weight Watchers app database in France as I didn’t want to use data so I didn’t write anything down. We did do quite a lot of walking – around the supermarket, then along the beach. It was a very long day – leaving at 6am to drive to Dover, and by the time we got back it was nearly 9pm. On Sunday I was shattered so I didn’t really pay attention to what I was eating. I felt a bit disheartened by my failure to track and so on Monday I managed to claw back a bit of control and chucked into my tracker anything I could remember eating on Saturday and Sunday. I don’t know if I got it exactly right but it didn’t seem as bad as I’d thought and I felt better for having tried. And then I lost 2.5lbs this week so that’s means that I did the right thing!
