Saved 2 Points!

Last night I pulled out my journal from my first week back on Weight Watchers, when I lost 6 pounds. I'm thinking of doing a little experiment and next week eating exactly what I ate that week and see what I lose. I think it would be a fun experiment. I thought it was interesting how my taste buds have changed since them. In one week I had about 15 Fiber One bars! My daily intake wasn't very balanced but I did save points that week... and I lost 6 pounds that week! I know it had to do with it being my first week... but I should still be able to get a loss from it. I’mma try it and see what happens. Imagine if I lost another 6 or even 5 or 4 pounds in a week... I would totally make this my regular diet... lol.

Speaking of daily intake - here's mine from yesterday. Not bad, I saved three points:

Daily Points: 25
2 Over Easy Eggs: 5 (20)
1 Slice Toast: 1 (19)
Butter Spray: 0 (19)
2 Slices Bacon: 2 (18)
1/2 cup Orange Juice: 1 (17)
2 Slices Bacon: 2 (15)
1 Chicken Thigh: 3 (12)
1 Cup Broccoli: 0 (12)
Butter Spray: 0 (12)
3 Cups Salad Greens: 0 (12)
4 oz Mixed Turkey: 4 (8)
2 tbs Light Dressing: 1 (7)
1 Cookie: 2 (5)
Sushi: 2 (3)

Exercise: 0
Flex Points Used: 0

Fruits/Veggies: 5
Milk: 0
Liquids/Water: 5
Lean Proteins: 3
Multivitamin: 1
Filling Foods: 8

Tonight I'm be trying out a smoothie recipe... I don't usually like spending points on smoothies because they don't fill me up for long. But this one might be different, it has peanut butter... it's the Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie (3 pts), I posted the recipe here in September... you can find it by going to the lower menu on the right of this page and clicking on recipes (there are only about 9 right now), then scrolling down. If you don't want to do that, but still curious - you can wait for tomorrow, I'll have a video up.

I am interested to see what happens with your experiment.

I think when we begin any kind of weight loss program we are usually super vigilant the first week, and then we can get sloppy. Revisiting our first week habits sometimes can be a good thing.However, 15 Fiber One bars could make life a little inconvenient with the constant need to find a bathroom ! my son has this ability to eat 3 of them a day if I allow it and suffer no ill affects. Most other people seem to have a very different experience.

I am excited to see how this goes!

THEANTIJARED: Thanks for visiting and I still need to check out the F-Factor book... thank you for the link.

TWISTED CINDERELLA AND BELLE: Unfortunately, I didn't do the experiment. I couldn't bring myself to eat that many fiber one bars... lol

DI: I couldn't bring myself to go through with it... 15 Fiber One Bars was a bit too much to do again.
