Eating habits have really changed for the better

Sunday, June 02, 2013

I have decided to quit Weight Watchers. It's a great program but not for the money. I've been on it a little over a week and really feel like I can do it without paying the $45 monthly pass. They do say you can do weekly visits w/o having access to the etools for just $13/week. And if you don't go a week you still have to pay for it. So I'm just not going to bother paying for something I feel confident I can do on my own.

My husband is doing a keto type diet (that's what he calls it). Mainly it's watching fat, protein, and carbs. So there's not going to be a lot of bad stuff in the house with that even. We'll see how we do but I seriously don't have that many fast food cravings anymore. I can drive down the street without having that 'pulling' type feeling towards a drive thru too. These are HUGE accomplishments for me.

Now I have to go. There's a VERY grumpy 2 year old having a meltdown on the floor.

    If you go toward the high protein diet, make sure you drink plenty of water to flush the ketones from your system. That diet can be very effective, but you can do serious damage if you don't follow that rule.

    If you can do it without, save the $$! I lost my weight by eating at least 2 veggies at dinner, small carb and a good sized protein. Really following the "fill your plate" idea of the old food pyramid. It works! Hang in there!! You will do it!

    I quit WW. I think it is better to see calories and nutritional breakdown rather than points. I used to save my points and then binge on carbs at night and fool myself that I was on program. WW has a good message and several of the leaders I had in the distant past were worth the program fee but now that technology has advanced and we can access calorie counts for free, I think the points system is a gimmick to tie you to WW and many of the not so healthy products they market. Good luck. The bottom line is that you have to figure out what works best for you! emoticon emoticon
