Hopping on the scales this morning I was both shocked and pleasantly surprised with a 4lb loss so far this week (actually taken from Tuesday). Yes, my crazy calorie counting/Weight Watchers Diet is actually working and I am already beginning to notice a difference. As with most things in life I am just sorry that I did not attempt the diet sooner! I have become accustomed with the diet rather quickly and my eating habits are certainly changing for the better. No more snacking during the day and if I do feel I need something to push me onto my next meal then I simply reach for a banana (0 pro points) or a Weight Watchers Fromage Frais (1 pro point).
I have had no inclination at all to attend any local Weight Watchers meetings, until a pamphlet landed on my doorstop yesterday with free registration and 1st meeting vouchers. Unfortunately the classes coincide with my work, but I feel comfortable enough with the diet and have the encouragement of The Musing Housewife to carry on by myself.
I checked the leaflet over and read all the information and even spotted Patsy Kensit on the front… hang on… rewind… Patsy Kensit as the new face of Weight Watchers?
The Musing Housewife and I had already had the discussion about Patsy… why on earth is she deemed a motivational figure for all us normal folk on Weight Watchers? She had it in her mind she had to lose a couple of pounds… and? How is that going to spur someone on who has a few stones to lose? She would have been on the diet for a couple of weeks at the most… what about the people who have to be on it for months or years… whether to lose weight or just to maintain as they enjoy the diet?
Jennifer Hudson was the face of Weight Watchers USA and it’s clear to see why, she took the diet seriously and it paid off as she looks amazing! In total she shed more than 80lbs, proving serious weight can be shifted if you stick to the diet.
Greg Wallace as another current ambassador, I can understand, he likes his food but has still been able to lose weight we could all see what there and he looks much better for it. Though Patsy, I just cannot see why she even needed to go on Weight Watchers in the first place… vanity more than anything. Sorry love, not only can you not act (Lethal Weapon anyone?!) and look like a trout with your pout but you will certainly not be my role model for my Weight Watchers journey.
