Yesterday was my first day ‘on the wagon’ and I already feel much better. It wasn’t difficult atall. On the weight watchers point system, but I’m having the slim fast shakes for breakfast (so that I’m less rushed in a morning). They are three points. I’m currently sticking to 20 points a day and yesterday I was able to do that by having the shake for breakfast (3), carrot and lentil soup (1.5) with 2 slices of toast (1) followed by a carrot and orange cake slice (0.5) Then for dinner a decent portion of Tesco Light Choice’s moussaka (5)(which was YUM and really filling) and a mound of brocolli (0)For dessert I had a really yummy weight watchers frozen chocolate brownie mousse dessert which really ticked the box of satisfying my sweet indulgence cravings (3). I was shocked that I had only eaten 14 points and was even able to indulge for a seond time in a WW chocolate caramel shortbread (2.5) later that day. I really didn’t need to eat more than that so I stopped there at 16.5 points I’ve been drinking soda water with fresh lime as its points free, keeps me hydrated and leaves me feeling full without stealing my points allowance away at every sip.
Anyway, I woke up this morning feeling much better, less sluggish and less bloated. I know I have been eating way too much recently, more than my body needs (or even wants) inside it. The points system is great because it completely removes that willingness to go back for seconds, since you know that if you do, you simply aren’t allowed dessert. So yesterday I feel like I ate the right amount of food for me, and my body is obviously happy with that.
