I'm doing pretty well with ww. It's week two. I lost 4 lbs the first week, and three the second... for a grand total of 7 pounds lost! I am pretty happy with the results considering I had dinner with Mendy at Logan's last Friday night. I only ate half my food (the rest was breakfast), and then Saturday we got gyros for dinner... I'm doing well with no cokes, I have figured out a formula for sweet tea that is low sugar but still sweet enough that I like drinking it. I make a gallon of tea and add a rounded 1/3 c. of splenda and a sparse 1/3 of real sugar. It's not bad for that much tea. Cutting sugar out of my diet has been the biggest change. I have switched to sugarless gum and haven't been making desserts. Mom and dad came down and brought dinner the other night (chicken enchiladas - yum) and cheesecake! I had a small piece and stayed within my points for the day. I have a basket on top of the fridge with 100 cal snacks. I have just bought several different types I like (my fav right now is the cheetos asteroids) and I reach in and get one for a quick 2 point snack. Sometimes I just try a piece of sugarless gum when I want something. It's been working so far. I'm buying Julie's treadmill and it should be here late today (or maybe tomorrow ;o). I'm so excited to be able to walk while here in the mornings with Iz. I finally have an ipod shuffle so I can listen to tunes while she watches noggin.

Whitney asked if I'd recommend weight watchers? Absolutely Whitney. I think it is really easy to follow and after you do it a while you know what to eat to stay within your points allowed per day.
