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.
