One of the things I’ve learned in my various weight loss journeys is that everyone has an opinion on what foods you should (not) be eating and they conflict with one another ridiculously. I have found for me personally that I agree with something a colleague said: the only diet that works is the one you’ll stick to. To that end, I don’t actually follow a specific diet and haven’t ever really.
When I was following Weight Watchers (pre-Points Plus) I was eating what I liked, but I tried to stick to whole grains. Not necessarily because I believed they . . . → Keep Going: Food Hospital: PCOS
actually, I was back on track Monday and that was important. I had a pretty crap weekend, weight watchers wise. It was a combination of not tracking (either not bothering, or using the excuse that I didn’t know what it was) and poor food choices (hi, chocolate chip cookies for lunch). I said I was going to do better – but in reality I think I knew I wouldn’t. I think the holidays are going to be a challenge.
I got back on track with tracking when my plane landed on Monday afternoon and since then have been pretty good. . . . → Keep Going: Back on track
one of the topics that comes up the most when I mention I’ve been doing weight watchers is the cost of food. I think many people have seen the Weight Watchers products in the store and think you’re required to buy them like with Jenny Craig and Nutrisystem. There’s no doubt some of the WW products are expensive, but you definitely don’t need to buy them. There are some products that I do like – mainly those sold at Centers (smoothies, mint crisp bars) – for which I’ve never found a comparable alternative but I don’t buy those that often.

original post WOW what a week!
As of this morning I’m down 3.9 lbs, which brings my overall total to 21.9 lbs in 7 weeks. I hit my 10% almost exactly a month after I got my 5%. I’m not yet sure what my next mini goal is.
The chart is updated below, but I really don’t think this was because I ate all my weeklies and dipped into my APs. I think it’s more a case of a) more activity this week and b) sodium awareness thanks to Tiggertiffin87, kaskinger and sydney 321 in this post.
