I've never done weight watchers before, although I have done Slimming World and other diets. The concept of counting points for everything I eat is new to me, but I'm getting used to it and I quite like it. My favourite thing about weight watchers so far is that I can literally eat anything I want, even chocolate, as long as I keep within my points allowance. I also like this diet because as I have to count points and weigh food it's teaching me about eating the right size portions and I can easily see where I was over-eating before, such as with massive plates of pasta!
I've been remembering to take photos of my dinner most nights, so here's what I've been eating.
Home-made butternut squash soup with chilli - 0 propoints
Chilli penne with ww roasted vegetable pasta sauce with veg and parmesan - 8 propoints
Sausage and veg tray bake - 18 propoints for half this much (took the photo before it was out the oven!)
Beef goulash with roasted new potatoes - 11 propoints
Chilli and prawn spaghetti - 7 propoints
BBQ chicken in bacon with potato wedges - 11 propoints
Chicken korma and naan bread (using ww sauce and naans) - 12 points without the rice / 15 with
Roasted butternut squash with broccoli and cauliflower cheese - 6 propoints
So after two weeks I've eaten some really yummy food and have lost 6.5lbs which I'm really pleased with. I hope I can lose at least 2lbs every week to keep me interested and on track. Is anyone else doing weight watchers?
