I joined Weight Watchers the day before my birthday of this year (March 4th), and let me tell you something: it was a bad time to start. The next day my manager showed up with TWO coffee cake rings, plunked them on my desk and wished me a happy birthday. Of course she couldn't have known, but . . .

Then that weekend I hosted a pizza party in celebration of my birthday. And despite the coffee cake, pizza and gratuitous booze of that week, I stayed on track. I didn't go over my points for a single week until a couple months later when I lost my job. At that point I'd dropped about 20 lbs, which I've managed to keep off for my first three months unemployed.

While I'm very happy with my weight at present, I'm still about twenty pounds away from what was my ultimate goal, and I'm ready to do it! I'm sure this is the place to do it. Bikinis here I come.

Huh, so if I do my two hour workout, that's three days of maximum points? It certainly doesn't encourage one to exercise!

That's cool though. I'm actually pretty happy to be monitoring my actual calorie intake here, so I'm keeping an eye on goal is to burn about 1k calories per day more than I eat (that's about 2 lbs per week), but if it's a little more and I'm not hungry I don't go for the gusto. I'm concerned about undereating especially given that my exercise routine is relatively new to me, and also that I've been in starvation mode before and it doesn't exactly do wonders for my psyche.

Foods you can't live without
Smart Beat Smart Squeeze Butter (0 pts - can only find it at Shaw's)

Thomas' 100 Calorie English Muffins (1 pt)

Cliff Z Bars (for kids) (2.5 pts each)

Light Italian Bread (1 pt for two slices)

Kraft Fat Free Cheese Singles (.5 pts each - not bad if you melt them)

Breyer's Fat Free Double Churn Ice Cream (1 point for 1/2 cup!). Sometimes with a 20 calorie cake cone. YUMMY DESSERT!

Moleman--according to my little slidey thing, depending on your weight, you can earn up to 13 points a day exercising for two hours (I know this only because it's exactly what I've been doing).

When I was regularly attending meetings I wasn't exercising, so maybe I missed it, but you can only earn 4 points a day by exercising? I would be worried about undereating in that case (thereby inviting starvation mode), since I'm giving myself only an extra 9 points and I still only eat a thousand calories under my exertion.

What's so good about slim?
I've noticed these things:

The sex is better.

Finding clothes that fit properly is super easy. And you can shop at pretty much any store.

I find that I get sick (um, like, after dinner tummy sick) whenever I eat fatty foods. I used to think I had Crohn's disease it was so bad, but it hasn't been a problem since I started eating low fat! If this is a problem you have, you might benefit from this kind of diet.

olive oil question
Um . . . the lettuce is free, the salt is free, and olive oil is about a point a teaspoon.

The big thing with salads is to measure your dressing. I found that Good Seasonings makes a dressing mix that is free in terms of points with no oil--and I swear you won't even notice the oil is gone! I make it with balsalmic vinegar just to be extra fancy. Wink
