Weight Watchers Wednesday: How I think I did

Tonight is my first weigh-in since I rejoined, so I thought this morning I could reflect a little on my first week back. This should be the easy week -- I could tell that I was losing at least water weight -- with all the daily water, I felt like I was in the bathroom 20 times a day.  I thought I was good at drinking water without tracking, but apparently not. A consequence of eating more fruits and vegetables is that I'm also getting more water from my food.

I went over my points a little this week, mostly on two days -- yesterday I didn't plan well enough and was busy all day, so I grabbed a tube of almonds for a snack that turned out to be 7 points.  I should have checked first. Sunday I overindulged at my parents' house.  The other days were fairly easy for me -- I didn't feel too hungry, even though I was eating a lot less and choosing different foods than I do normally. I can definitely tell that the fruits and vegetables make a difference -- when I had a lot of them and spread them out through the day, I felt satisfied all day. On a day like yesterday when I only just barely got my minimums and most were at the end of the day, I felt hungry.

I'll check in later tonight with my actual weigh-in, but I expect to have a pretty good week. Not an insanely good first week -- some people lose 6-7 pounds their first week, but I never have -- but a solid loss. We'll see if I'm right.

One thing I really like about the new eTools -- they calculate some things I have been wanting to track, including average weekly weigh-ins and average daily PointsPlus usage.  That is going to make it a lot easier to see how things correlate. The geeky stats person in me really likes that.
