I think we can all agree that Super Bowl Sunday is a daaaangerous day for those of us trying to lose weight. Ever the optimist, I began this day with the intent, nay: the DETERMINATION to survive the night on plan with Weight Watchers. After all, that IS why I added WW to my arsenal of accountability partners; I needed help managing the food! So far, so good. And I don’t feel deprived at all.
I started out with only 4 points at breakfast, but whole grain to stick around awhile. Lunch was 1 point soup and whole grain goldfish, so only another 4 points. That left 17 points for the occasion! Now I can have BOTH a small beef fajita and 6 baked buffalo wings and dip baked tostitos in my salsa and veggies in my guacamole, and be satisfied and then some on a feast of 21 points. The whole day so far is only 4 points into my weekly allowance. I am patting me on the back!
And when the rest of the gang breaks out the ice cream and root beer for floats, I have stocked up on Weight Watchers ice cream cups, so I can still have my similar sweet, but only 2 more points.
My success is not just what I DID eat, but also what I kept out of the house! We have NO Chex Mix, a bad binge trigger for me. Also no cookies or cake or cobbler: I love that stuff! For me, ice cream is nice, but not to die for, so I can have a little and leave it. I had a lot of points for one day without any activity points, but for a special occasion, it’s a good day!
