I joined Weight Watchers three weeks ago after a lovely neighbour of mine knocked on my door and invited me to go along with her and her sister. I had previously joined my local Slimming world and to be honest this weight watchers group is much better. I know it sounds weird but even the lighting in the hall makes a big difference and being a brighter meeting room it feels more positive. The other ladies are all really friendly and the leader very approachable. I instantly felt at ease.
So far I have lost 11LB and for my fourth week I'm hoping to lose 3LB to reach my first stone. I have changed a few things in my diet like I have given up bread and potatoes and now only eat weight watchers or danish bread. My breakfast now consists of all bran with skimmed milk although on a Saturday I have a cooked breakfast of bacon, mushrooms and plum tomatoes.
I haven't completely given up alcohol and save my weight watchers treat points for a Friday night bottle of Vino. My cooked breakfast Saturday morning helps stop me craving carbs all day which is often my problem the morning after wine night.
I'm trying to replace my coffee intake with cups of Green Tea, however I'm yet to completely give caffeine up.
My exercise levels need to be increased really and I will be working on that this week. All in all I'm feeling very positive and determined...I will beat this over eating addiction! Oh and just before I go I just have to share this with you...I think my Hens know I am on a diet as look as this diddy egg they layed this morning. Here it is on the left next to a regular sized egg. Cute eh!
