I'm a weight watcher....

Yup... I have joined Weight Watchers.  I signed up for the online version and weigh myself.  I have lost 2lbs so far (sigh)... and I am finding it really hard to be honest!  I have been having something tiny for breakfast because I am never very hungry in the mornings... a fair sized lunch and a medium dinner.  I am finding the evenings reeeeeeeeally hard though!  I have always been a 'snack in front of the telly' type of girl... and I am finding it very hard not eating ANYTHING at nighttime (I have normally used all my points up during the day).

I know this is only my first week though and I am just adjusting.  I am breaking all sorts of eating habits... and it is really making me look at how unhealthily I ate before.  I am now eating what I would consider to be a normal portion... but compared to what I was eating a few weeks ago, it is miniscule.  Instead of putting heaped amounts of fatty food on my plate, I am finding that I have a medium amount of the 'less good' food and I make up for it with veggies.

I don't find myself getting hungry during the day... so I know that what I am eating is enough and I used to eat LOADS more just because I'm greedy and like food.

Does anyone out there do Weight Watchers?  Can you give me some advice on stopping these evening cravings?  What is your favourite Weight Watchers recipe?



  1. Sounds like things are going well!

  2. You've done so well to lose 2lbs this week!

    I have weeks where I really struggle, today is one of them days where I just want to eat...and I have done! And its my weigh in tommorow I don't think I want to go but I know I will just end up on a slippery slope.

    I like their minted lamb hotpot recipe which I do in the slow cooker. And I made my own recipe on their recipe builder which is

    30g chorizo
    100g chicken
    150g pasta
    and half a pouch of Dolmio Tomato and Basil sace and thats 7.5 points and its delicious! x

  3. I meant 'you need to read'

  4. Hello Emma, check this blog out, I think is what you nrrf yo read

  5. Congrats on the weight loss so far. I know you will do well. Let me know how you like the program, I've thought about starting it before but didn't know if it really worked.

  6. Oh, I am doing WW {not that I can really claim it!} because I've been doing so poorly lately. I have absolutely NOOOOO advice, because I am literally doing so awful.

    BUT, I have done WW several times in the past, and lost tons of weight every time. It does work.

    Good luck and congrats on the 2 pounds!

  7. I don't join the Weight Watchers, but I'm with something that's very much like it. You can snack on lots of fruit, or you can drink water. Obviously water is a better choice but if you don't like water then a salad with vinaigrette dressing and fruit should help ^^
