Weight Watchers/ Low Carb Combo Diet - My Own
Started out with the Atkins Diet last year, decided I needed more of a food choice so I joined Weight Watchers. Counting points and carbs not going over 30 carbs a day and W/Watchers 23 Points per day. I am excited due to having more variety of foods. Starting weight 212.04 had a couple cheat days Sad so weight went up a little. Started over again now at 210.6. Very Happy I can do this because I want to live!

Transitioning from Atkins to Weight Watchers
I have started weight watchers recently, first week lost about 3 pounds. I felt hungry so i came up with a great salad recipe, shared at WW. (7 Points) - 1 Smart One - Cheese Enchilada with spanish rice( do not over cook) 2 to 2 1/2 cups shredded lettuce and 1/4 to 1/2 cup red bell pepper. After cooking Enchilada dinner (let cool abit) cut into very small pieces and mix the rice with the enchilada, dump on top of the finely shredded lettuce, add the small diced red bell pepper and mix throughly till most lettuce is covered with the cheese, you can also add diced green onions 1/4 to 1/2 cup. EAT TILL YOUR FULL .. VERY YUMMMMY!!! Like eating a big plate of mexican food (Remember) the lettuce and bell pepper, & onion are 0 points. I eat this for dinner or lunch when ever very hungry! Please let me know if you fall in love with this salad? This shows my starting weight as 203 wrong, I started at 212.4 last week, today 210Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I am doing something wrong
I fully understand how you feel, I was doing the same when I first started Atkins was sooo much easier. I fell off the diet, restarted 2 days ago, so far down a few pounds. I will allow mtself 1 bar a day and 2 shakes. Hang in there! I shared my diet with a friend last year about just eating healthy, seen her yesterday down about 75 pounds!!! So many people are doing great on this diet, WE CAN DO IT TOO!
