I weighed in today at 148.6 pounds, down 1 pound.
That puts me .6 pounds away from not having to pay at Weight Watchers meetings and 2.6 pounds from my goal weight. It also means that I’ve now lost 10.2 pounds this year. It has been slow. but progress has been made.
I think several things helped to finally lose some weight this week. I kept my calories more even during the week so that I didn’t have to eat lower calorie at the end of the week than at the start of the week. Also, I kept my carbs at 70 or below of the last 4 days of the week.I ate out last weekend, but was careful the rest of the day so those days were like the other days. Friday, I did eat lower calorie than I had really planned. I had decided that eating late at night sometimes did have a bearing on early morning weighing. So, I had dinner Friday about 7:15 and then didn’t eat anything else the rest of the evening.
I am going to stay with eating more evenly throughout the week for now. Basically I’ll keep on doing what worked this week, at least until I get to 148.
At the meeting they gave us a sample of a new snack.
These are called Caramel Apple Crisps, but really I think it should say Cinnamon instead of Caramel. I tried a couple of them that my husband tried and they were actually really good.
I don’t usually like most of the Weight Watchers snacks. Most are overly processed and it irritates me that they usually use refined grains. This one surprised me because you used whole grains – oats and whole wheat flour.
A package is 2 pounds, 90 calories. There are 15g of carbs, 2g of fiber, and 6g of sugar. For me, that would be OK numbers for an occasional snack on days when I’m not having a lot of other carbs and nothing else with much sugar.
These are very processed, of course. On the other hand, the ingredients weren’t terrible.
It has a longer ingredient list than I like. On the plus side, I knew what everything on the list was and felt OK for me with the ingredients. And, I am especially glad to see a Weight Watchers snack that is using whole grains. For me, I see this as processed, but all right as an occasional snack when I want something low point and feel like I can afford the carbs.
