First Week = -4.7 pounds

Pretty sweet if you ask me :). I’m down about 4.7 pounds after my first week. Monday will be my second week using weight watchers and i’m pretty happy with the program so far. I have to say the stuff i have been eating lately is pretty good, it’s just a change from what i was used to. The Weight Watchers plan im doing is “flex points”…. based on my height, sex, weight and age weight watchers says i should eat 40 points which is actually a TON.

Well let me say it like this… if you eat healthy foods 40 points is a TON…. if you eat crap, its not much. The reason for this is that to determine a point value WW uses the calories, fat and fiber contents of whatever you’re eating. Fiber content really reduces points and obviously FAT increases point values significantly. While a pat of butter is high in points, so is 2 cups (!) of this delicious soup. If you look @ the contents of that soup you can see its mainly veggies and chicken… both fill you up BIG time. Which one would u rather eat? lol

Yeah i know people don’t eat STRAIGHT butter, but the point is the better the food is the more it fills you up and “economic value” of points to energy is much better.
