Today, I went to my Saturday Weight Watchers meeting. Since I have already weighed in for the month, I didn’t weigh in today. I had a better week this past week than I did the 3 weeks before. Frankly, I had gotten really out of whack on my SmartPoints. The week before this one I averaged over 1600 calories a day and ended the week — after Daily and Weekly SmartPoints and FitPoitnts — 93 SmartPoints in the hole! This past week I started get myself back to normal eating. I ended up slightly in the hole. I do, however, have me set on losing even though I am at goal. If I set myself on maintenance, I would have been within my SmartPoints. This week was good enough to maintain, but not enough to lose weight. It was the weeks before this week that did the damage. On my scale I am up about 2 1/2 pounds, so my goal this week is to really get back to eating within the losing mode.
Tomorrow is our anniversary and we will be going out to eat so I know that will be my high point day of the week. Today, we went out to lunch but I wanted to be really careful what I ate given that I am eating out tomorrow. The first thing I try to do in that situation is to eat at a restaurant where I know there are choices that I like that will be lower points. I emphasize “that I like” because it doesn’t help me at all to go somewhere that has lower calories options that I don’t like. It has to be somewhere that I actual like those options.
I ended up with a 410 calories/10 SmartPoints lunch:
