I started Weight Watchers last weekend. Today marked one week.
One week of trying to not eat sugar.
One week of trying to not eat too many carbs.
One week of COUNTING POINTS.
And…I screwed up.
I gained a pound. I know…it could be worse. I could have gained 1 1/2 pounds. WHATEVER!!
But during this week, I made some diet discoveries that I’m going to share with you. I want to insure that you, my wonderful, dear, sweet friends, don’t screw up. Yep, that’s me…always looking out for those I love.
Do: By all means, buy those 100 calorie snack bags.
Don’t: Under any circumstances, eat all 6 or 8 packages in one day. That…is bad. Very, very bad.
Do: By all means, buy those yummy cinnamon chip, low fat, 70 calorie scones from that coffee place with the creepy lady.
Don’t: Under ANY circumstances…trust that they are low fat OR 70 calories. No matter what. And don’t…eat more than one…that…is bad. Very, very bad.
Do: Eat plenty of veggies and fruit. Fiber is a wonderful thing.
Don’t: Take your dance class on days that you ingested too much fiber. That…is bad. Very, very bad. Especially for the other dance students…just sayin.
Do: Drink lots of water. Tons of water.
Don’t: Count diet Coke as water. And…don’t drink most of your water intake close to your bed time. You’ll either a) not wake up in time while you are dreaming that you are peeing or b) you’ll be up all night peeing…only, not in your bed. (NO…I did NOT pee in my bed but…it was an exceptionally close call)
Do: Write down EVERYTHING you stick in your mouth. Well…maybe not EVERYTHING…after all, some things are waaaaaay too much info.
Don’t: Forget to write down EVERYTHING that you put in your mouth (except that). Because…you need to keep track of your points. And, if you neglect to write down the copious amounts of pistachios or the 7th and 8th package of 100 calorie chip ahoy cookies…it’s just going to sabotage your diet endeavor.
Do: Make sure you get plenty of exercises. Every day. At least 1/2 hour. Minimum.
Don’t: Skip the exercise. Especially on days that you eat too many of those aforementioned scones. Because, that’s a pound just waiting to happen.
Do: Keep trying.
Don’t Give up.
Do: Want to lose those 15 or so pounds.
Don’t: Eat the shit anymore!!
Well…I hope that my failure is your success. Unless of course, you are naturally skinny. Because then…well…eat all you want. BITCH!! 🙂
BTW…I will have my computer with me. I’m leaving tomorrow. And…THEY HAVE INTERNET!!! I just won’t have time to Plurk…sigh…there goes the hard earned karma.
