I weighed in at my first Weight Watchers at Work meeting yesterday, up 4 pounds from my low of last April. (Which, if it weren't for my blood sugar issue, I would think was not a big deal.) Anyway, I'm going to be tracking for the next 3 months with their online tools, using points instead of calories, but I'm keeping my community activity over here.
Tracking points isn't really any different than tracking calories, though I do feel that just shaking up my routine in any way will help me at this point. But I'm doing it more for the added accountability of the weekly weigh-ins, and there's something to be said for declaring yourself in live meetings too. So my plan is to drop 10 pounds, go back to the doc and get a clean bill of health, and then back to just Spark.
I'm still going to be following my WheatBelly food plan too, which makes it a little more challenging, because some foods which I eat a lot of that are a good bargain for your buck calorie-wise, like almonds and sardines, are very high in WW points. I'm going to be filling in with a lot of free points veggies, I can see already. But that's a good thing, right? My current favorite is Italian-cut green beans, somehow more satisfying than French cut or whole stringbeans.
