It's been one week on Weight Watchers and I feel good about eating better. I lost 2 kilos (4.4 lbs). I was kinda hoping for more the first week but I'm not complaining. I survived my first eating out on WW today, we were at the mall and I opted for seafood, soup and grilled salmon. I have to admit, while my kids' fries and Chinese smells wafted my way I was feeling the crave but I knew that once I got my food and ate, I'd be fine. I was completely satisfied actually, without that stuffed feeling, it was delicious. I don't know how many points these were but it's all I had all day except for a small bowl of corn flakes with skim. I usually prefer 4-5 small meals/snacks throughout the day but this was an exception. I was grocery shopping afterwards so it was a good thing we had dinner first. Shopping on an empty stomach is a recipe for disaster. I'm happy to say I bought lots of fruit and veg with meals in mind.
I kind of feel bad about not baking goodies for my kids lately. I think I will make some cookies this week and send a bunch to neighbors so there isn't a whole lot in the house. I like that Food.com (previously recipezaar) has nutritional info on all the recipes so you can figure out how many points a couple of cookies will be. The beauty of the points system is that it teaches you portion control. You can have whatever you want but in moderation. Here goes another week, inshaAllah.
