Hi, my name is Deborah I am 25 years old, 5"2 and currently weigh 183 lbs. I have been on weight watchers since May 20th I have so far lost 12 lbs.

But I feel like I am obsessed. I find that I am constantly counting points and constantly thinking of food. Like how much of that should I eat? What will I be satisfied with more? How can I get more food for not a lot of points? How can I make many servings so that I do not have to cook every day such as rice and vegetables? And how many points will I earn if I walk 2 hours a day? Is this normal? I also have been dreaming of meal ideas and my exercise for the next day. I find that all I do is think about this diet. What should I do? What should I not do? I also get on the scale every morning.

Wow! I am you! You are me! I feel I am obsessed to, I do exactly what you do, constantly think about points and going to the computer to track points and looking up recipes and thinking about exercising...but you have lost 12 lbs! That is great! I think there are some people that really need to hyper-focus if they want to reach a goal, and perhaps we are that type? Anyways, it is not just you!

I just have all these numbers pouring though my head...ok so if I eat half of this how many points would it be...hmm where's my sliding calculator.!Laughing

Yup, obsessed is normal, unfortunately the more you think about food, well the more you think about food. Makes me a little crazy, but just keep at it. Remember if you only dream about it, is 0 points Smile

They're generally too high here. Most of us use other online calorie calculators and then change our RDIs here. Draglist's website diettruth.org has some links.
