denimdol46's Journal, 23 January 2013

I've been doing the atkins diet for a while.. I switched to Weight watchers to check it out... then back to Atkins. Weight Watchers for me is better due to a point system that really works for me..It's Simple, stay within my points range and boom it's all good. Weight Watchers gives you really big bonus points for when people go over their daily...no worries you just take some points from the extra! I can eat it all.. bread, pizza, fruit...etc as long as it's in moderation staying within my points boundries. One day I obbsessed over chocolate.. I ate 3 hershey nuggets... then my guy came home with a small box of chocolates for me (cuz he's a good man )There were 8 chocolates in the heart shaped box. Well now don't cha know I could not stop myself, YUP I ATE 6 and if I want to be real with my journal I ate half of the remaining 2!!!! That's like friggen chocolate overload indeed... 10 damm chocolates. Well Weight Watchers is forgiving that way. I went into the points system and saw I had consumed 14 of my allowed 26 points! I was able to go to receipes and find amazing meals for my remaining 11 points therefore Keeping me on the ok list! I have to say.. a diet that has a restriction on foods makes me want them even more! Doesn't matter what you eat, drink or exercise.. If you stay within 1200 calories (for women) or reduce your caloric intake by 500 calories if you are not prone to exercise YOU WILL LOOSE WEIGHT!

I find Weight Watchers works better for me too! restricting foods only makes you want them more and then when you do have them LOOK OUT!!! LOL Congrats! I'm glad you found something that you can live with..."Lifestyle" not a "diet" (darn dirty word!) LOL Good Luck and enjoy the journey :-)
