Pro Points

I'm one week into the Pro Points programme and I lost 1.3kg! I'm not exactly sure how I managed that since I ate so much but I did track every day (a miracle!!) and I am still doing so. I've been snacking on fruit quite a bit so can only assume this is why I lost so much - that plus my hormonal gain of the week before when I should've (according to my scales) lost .5kg.

Anyway, this was last night's dinner. It's the sweet potato, bacon & corn quiche from the December issue of WW magazine. A quarter is 6 Pro Points. Pretty good!

It's been a while

My weight has been pretty steady for the past 2 months but I'm not particularly happy with that. We have a communal journal at our WW meeting so last week I decided to take it & track. I was really good for the first three days and then I had a weekend away sewing. I was all ready to have a scone for morning tea & count it when I discovered that the organiser had chosen the healthy option. So we had fruit for morning tea & yoghurt for afternoon tea. Bummer! But it helped me stay on track I suppose.

But of course we went out for dinner on the Saturday night. I was really good...I had fettucine in a tomato sauce with prawns, NO dessert, NO entree & just one piece of plain bread. Unfortunately though I drank a whole bottle of wine myself. :) Consequently I had a gain of .3kg. But I think that was mostly hormonal and I was pretty happy with that.

So this week we started the new ProPoints system. I was a bit dubious at first - especially when the on-line tracker showed beetroot as being worth 1 point! But then I discovered it depends which bit you read/use so now I fiddle it & count it as zero. I'm evil. So I've been eating and eating (can't believe how much you can eat on this new programme!) & finally the scales are pointing down. So I can't wait for the meeting to see if I've officially lost!
