CHA-CHING!

CHA-CHING! is what I said this morning when I discovered that nursing moms get an extra 14 points each day. HECK YES, because yesterday I was really really hungry. I was very proud of myself for passing on the popcorn at our movie party yesterday, opting instead for an apple and carrot sticks. But guess what? I can eat an entire garden of carrots without being full, so how does that help me? I ate a banana last night and felt no better. My exact words were, "Well, that was worthless".  I had to go into my weekly allowed points just to have 1/2 a cup of Cheerios around 10 PM. Turns out now that I have more points to use each day, I actually went 10 under yesterday. Oops. Too bad it's a "use it or lose it" system.

I know I'm only on day 3 of WW, but I really like it. Writing down everything I eat with a number associated with it helps keep me accountable. I'm forced to measure and not overeat, and I still get to eat a little of anything I want. For instance, we're getting Little Caesar's pizza for dinner tonight and I get to have two slices. And nobody can stop me. SO excited. I love food.

  1. I'm glad you're enjoying WW. My sis in law went to a meeting on Saturday. She had to ask how many extra points she gets because she is nursing twins. The leader thinks she gets 21 extra points, but she is going to have to call the hotline to find out for sure. Crazy!

  2. Since it's 7 for nursing if your baby is also getting other food, so 7 more for twins makes sense. That is crazy! That's like hitting the jackpot!
