Simply Filling Technique, Mid-Week Check-In

Saturday, April 02, 2011

I decided to try WW's Simply Filling Technique this week as a personal challenge to myself to depend on Power Foods. It's been a little bit of a rocky start, with a headache one day due to eating too little fat and struggling a bit with balance. Plus, I was trying to save as many Weekly Points as possible for a party today.

Now, the party is over and luckily a lot of the people there were on various restrictive diets, so there was plenty to eat. Barbecued chicken breasts or plain chicken breasts, green beans and potatoes, and salad. I had small (1/4-1/2 cup) servings of broccoli cheese casserole and macaroni and cheese, and filled up on the power foods. I did have cake, because that's a must for me, but I slowed down and enjoyed it, and put my fork down between bites sometimes too. I came out with 17 WPs left for the next 3 days, plus 5 earned Activity Points (so far). Not too bad!

I'm not sure if SFT is something I could do for the long haul or not. I'm feeling a little restricted, so I don't think it's really for me, mentally. I know a lot of people find it freeing, but for some reason I'm having a hard time with it. It's the little things, like not wanting to use WPs to have cheese on my veggie burger. I prefer to use my WPs for treats, so I think it's a mental thing. I'll definitely be going back to PointsPlus after this week, but I'm interested to see what I will have lost at the end of the week.
