Weight Watchers

I started my first week of Weight Watchers Online.  Tuesday was my first day but since Monday is my weight in day.  I logged what I ate the previous day.   I had a huge eating binge on Monday it  wasn't pretty!  ( For those of you who are aware I used all my bonus points for the week in one day!)Probably not the best way to start on WW but I wanted to be honest with myself.  For the rest of the week I was very diligent about logging everything  I ate but really the first week was more of a trial week.

Here are the Pros and Con's of WW (in my opinion)

-  it makes you aware of portion control
- I enjoy keeping track of my points, it's like a game
- if you eat a lot of healthy foods it is a lot of food in one day!
-website is user friendly
- I am making better choices ex. having mustard on my sandwich (0 points) vs Mayo (1 to 2 points)
-you can eat everything in moderation


 -the database doesn't have a lot of Canadian brands, which means you are plugging in a lot of the foods (time consuming)
- measuring everything you eat is kind of a pain
- it is hard to go out for dinner when you don't know exactly what's in the food

Last Weeks Exercise

Monday- Treadmill (30mins)
                Cycling (15mins)

Tuesday- Spin Class (50mins)

Thursday- Yoga (60mins)

Total Calories 1365

As of today I have logged 15.72 miles.

Does anyone have any tips on WW online? I would love to hear them.

I hope everyone has a great week.

  1. Unfortunately I don't know much about WW online, I need my weekly meetings to keep myself in line! Though I have heard they had an issue with their database and are working to fix it.

    Measuring can be a pain, but after a while you get used to the portion size and you can use your vision to measure instead!
