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!

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

Losing weight should help. Just think of the extra strain the extra pounds are putting on them.

do You 5:2 ?
I found 5:2 very good when I was working. I would take nothing to eat to work with me, come in in the evening, have my low cal meal (Weight Watchers or such like) and that was me for the evening. Now I ...

Hello and Help Please
I agree. Gaining 30 lbs in a month when you have actually been doing things to make yourself healthier is alarming to me. The water retention alarms me as well. If your doctor says there is nothing wrong, ...

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
