Tonight was the first weigh-in after joining Weight Watchers. Proud to say there was 6.0 pounds fewer on that scale than there was this time last week. Got my "second week" bookmark, too.
The meeting was largely about "activity" (just a fancy, politically-correct euphemism for the "E" word), and how we can get in a few extra steps in our day-to-day lives. Some good ideas were discussed, and I'll be sure to try some of them.
On a bad-timing note, tonight for the first time I saw at Kroger ice cream sandwiches with VANILLA wafers instead of the usual chocolate. 3 points per each, not as bad as I was afraid of. That'll make for a nice "filler" in case I need it in the evening. And that'll give me a sorely-needed dairy item. Milk, you see, is down there with such delectable liquids as Pepsi, Hydrochloric Acid and sewage runoff (and not necessarily in that order). Go figure -- I love milkshakes, but cannot stand any kind of milk when offered straight.
I'm not there yet, however every week is an improvement. Already I'm eating better than before my first meeting a week ago. And those Lean Cuisine pepperoni pizzas, when zapped for 2:45, taste dead on perfect. Got a few more tonight at the grossy-stoh.
I also said something about it on the radio today, so there's certainly no turning back now.
Here's to another week down this different road!
Ciao for niao.
