Suffice it to say, I am not cut out for the no-carb thing. Say what you will about the lack of will power, but no. Not for me. I tried Atkins once upon a time with my mother and couldn't do it then. I tried it again on a much more strict diet and barely made it 3 days. I was shaky, dizzy, nauseated, and feeling quite slug-like. Maybe I didn't give it enough time to work it's magic, but I could care less honestly. I felt awful! There are several things I'll be continuing though- the green tea at most meals, limiting my carbs, and will still be adding in all the fish (which I still haven't made yet). I still think I need to cut down on my carbs, but cold turkey just may not work for me. My dad, however, has lost 5 lbs since Saturday (he skipped the no-carb cycle and just started with the natural starches and whole grains)! Amazing what can happen when you stop eating a whole bag of hershey kisses every night, eh? :) My dad works for Herhsey's, by the way, and I don't think anyone would be shocked to hear that a lot of the men he works with have diabetes. He was well on his way, so I really hope he can stick with this!
Last night I was still drawing a blank. I've been plan-hopping for a while now.
Today we had a memo go around about not using the work computers for anything but work. No more frontierville at lunch for me ;) Instead, I played around on my iPhone and behold! The app I used to track WW points before they changed to Points Plus has finally updated! I stopped doing Weight Watchers in November because I wouldn't be able to track and didn't want to start paying for the online version. Now that my app is updated for the new program- I can use it again, which is exactly what I did today. On the new program, I get 31 points and had 4 left today. I stuck with WW for months, and did really well on it when I was doing it by the book.
Seems like a no-brainer to me?!
