After a week of living on Weight Watchers own foods, mixed in with my own healthy meals, I can certainly say that the Weight Watchers diet does work! I have already lost 7 pounds since I started last Wednesday! Awesome! The best thing is, I have still been able to eat chocolate and eat Chicken Curry’s (albeit Weight Watchers!) which are delicious and just the right portion size.
It has amazed me how much support there is in the online community with regards to weight loss and dieting. All the lovely ladies who joined in 7Hippopotamus Blog linky have been wonderful with their supportive comments. I am sure there are many more dieters out there who are blogging about their journey, so why not join in the weekly linky and share your success and struggles. We are all in the same boat and it is great to have real life support from people who are going through it. Unlike having celebrity role models that you see airbrushed at the end of their journey (see my Patsy Kensit Weight Watchers rant here.)
It has been easy to keep to the diet, literally just a case of cutting back on snacking and watching portion sizes. I was a major snacker but have found that if I do feel slight hunger pangs between meals then a banana will suffice – although with the Tesco offer still currently running on Weight Watchers products, I know have a cupboard full of Cheesy Puffs (2 Pro Points and 76 Calories) and Caramel Wafers (also 2 Pro Points).
I am finding my rhythm now and like to jump on the bike, which is currently in front of the tv, for 20 minutes each night. Already my legs are tightening up but I have a long way to go in order to keep up with Wiggo!
My motivation is still strong and I continue to have the support of my very best friend The Musing Housewife who is also completing the Weight Watchers diet. Fingers crossed for another good loss this week :O)
