So where do I start? I was always the "fat kid" in school throughout my elementary and middle school years. When I was 13, I hit approximately 230lbs all while standing at only 5'3/5'4. I used the Atkins diet (after watching my father lose 100lbs on it) and then just healthy eating to work my way down to approximately 145lbs, my lowest weight ever recorded. As I grew taller (I am now 5'9), I went up to 160 lbs, my most comfortable weight. Since my second year of college I slowly put on more and more weight until I ended up at 200lbs. Even though I am relatively tall, I'd still like to get back down to 160/170lbs by summer 2009.

I'm using Weight Watchers because, although I'm extremely impatient with weight loss, I've learned that if I diet too extremely I end up giving up. I need a diet that allows me to eat what I want, but takes portion size into account. This is what works for me. I find the point system less intimidating than calories for some strange reason. I guess it's psychological trickery?

Why did I do it?

I think that a way to curb your craving may be to go to the store and pick up some low-cal ice cream (not the same, I know, but it helps). I just finished up some Breyer's Free strawberry and it's pretty good. It has 90 cals, 0 grams of fat, and 3 grams of fiber per serving (1/2 cup), so it's only one WW point. In the meantime, try to pawn the ice cream off on one of your friends who isn't currently watching their weight and likes cookie dough Smile

Foods for Bloat
I like parsley tea; it's a natural diuretic. You take two teaspoons of chopped fresh parsley (I've used dried parsley from the spice cabinet in the past) and steep it in boiling hot water for about 10 minutes before straining. Some people such as myself like to add a little more than two teaspoons of parsley. I also like to add a little honey to it as a sweetener Smile

Points in Malt Beverages?
Hey guys. I was over at my friend's house late last night (after I had already used up my 26 points for the day) and he offered me an alcoholic drink by Hard Creamer called Orange Cream. I hadn't used any of my flex points, so I decided to have one. The problem is, I can't find the drink's nutrition info ANYWHERE. I'd like to know how many points they were so I can keep track of them (plus they were really good, so I'd probably like to have more sometime in the future). It has some cream in it, so I'm assuming it has a little fat in it unlike the Smirnoff Malt soda drinks. Does anyone happen to know of this drink and its points value? TIA! Very Happy
