today's menu

I don't want to get all cocky or anything but Weight Watchers has been a breeeeeze so far! I mean, I know I'm just 3 days in... but with the e-tools for tracking and my careful preparation PLUS all the knowledge I've gained in my five years of weight loss efforts... it's so easy I can't believe I wasn't doing this all along.

Here's what I ate today:
breakfast: 10 grain hot cereal, 1 cup of strawberries, 1 tsp butter, coffee with skinny creamer and NO sugar
lunch: fresh curly leaf lettuce from my co-worker's garden, 1 pouch of tuna (so convenient!) a sliced cucumber and one boiled egg with one tbsp of olive oil and one tablespoon of lemon juice. YUM-O and sooo filling~!
snack: reduced fat cheddar cheese and 1 cup of grapes
dinner: my favorite meal: blackened tilapia over a bed of spinach with grilled yellow squash

It has been such a great day of eating. I am loving all my healthy food choices and I am loving having meals planned out in advance! When it's time to eat - I check my menu to see what I have planned and I just put it together. I've been timing my meals at 7:30, 12:30, 3:30 and 7:30 and it seems to keep me from getting the least bit hungry during the day where I want to snack - and eating dinner a little later has been keeping me from needing a snack after dinner. So far. I've also had almost no sugar and no carbs and I can really tell the difference.

If you're in the "don't weigh every day" camp... ignore this paragraph. For me, I need that reality check every morning to gain my focus and I was delighting this morning to see two pounds down! I want this first week to be a real jump start.

Time to settle in for the night... didn't sleep well last night because I was too keyed up from watching the Tony's and I've been sleepy all day... gotta get to bed earlier tonight!

Keep praying for me to be successful with this! I need to be a healthy weight!

good luck to you at WW. The program definately works if you are following it. I made it to Lifetime but let my old habits take over so I am doing this journey again. Planning the meals in advance sounds like a great idea. I think I am going to try it. Keep it up! Julie
