My Food & Weight Loss Tracker
Hi! I was pointed in this direction so I'm here to keep track of what I eat and how much I lose. :)
I have a lot to lose - 18 st to be exact - so I'm a little tentative about whether or not Weight Watchers can help me as much as I need. But I'm willing to give it a go!
I've had some success on a low carb diet before - I lost approx. 20 lbs in about 6-7 weeks - but I need a little bit more flexibility, which is why I'm opting for the points system. I'll still be keeping to a relatively low carb diet, or at least cutting out all grains, refined sugars & processed foods, but I want some wiggle room.
I think I'm supposed to be on around 46 PP a day, but the foods I'm going to be eating are all relatively low on the points scale and I don't want to force myself to over eat or eat junk just to meet my points quota, so I'm going to aim for around 30 PP and see how I feel.
I suspect I'll be scolded by the hard liners for eating less points than recommended, but hey ho!
For the next 8 days I'll be doing a juice cleanse, just to get rid of the sluggish ugh feeling after eating an embarrassing amount of Christmassy food. But once I'm done with that, I'll jump right into pointing all my food.
I'm a total meal planner, so I've already got my post-cleanse meals all worked out. Nothing exciting - just yogurt, protein powder & fruit for breakfast, salad with eggs or chicken for lunch, and fish or chicken, sweet potato & veggies for dinner. Not exactly Michelin star level but it'll do. :)
Anyway, I hope I can keep this updated. I don't want to fail this time.
