That’s all I have to say!
I’m in week 12 of weight watchers and I’ve lost 18.8 pounds. Up until this week, I have been doing really well. This has felt easy, I’ve had a routine and being the sugarholic that I am, I’ve managed to find dessert substitutes that don’t sabotage my program…. weight watchers cookies and cream ice cream bars (2 points) or fudgsicles (1 point), WW chocolate chip cookies (1 point for one), and Hostess 100-calorie cupcakes (the chocolate ones are only 1 point for a pack). I’ve limited my yummy snacks like this to twice a day (sometimes three times if I’m really feeling like I need an additional fix) and I’ve felt great and the weight is coming off.
For whatever reason, this week— the cooler weather? that time of the month?— I don’t know, I have been craving comfort foods like homemade mac and cheese or grilled cheese sandwiches, and sweets, chocolate primarily. I’ve fought them valiantly and stayed in points each day and have even done my walking, but it has been far from easy. This week, WW feels like a diet. And since I need to live like this for a long time, I don’t want it to feel like a diet.
So anyone have any suggestions on how to squash the cravings monster before I eat an entire box of Hostess 100-calorie cupcakes????? I’ve learned at least, not to keep anything more dangerous in my house! 🙂
