One Day on Weight Watchers

06-16-2014_WeightWatchers-012Last time I wrote about my decision to diet and my goals in this post. Now I will elaborate on Weight Watchers. First you need to determine your daily allowance, here’s how to calculate (via):

1. Gender:
Female- score 2
Male- score 8
A nursing mom- score 12

2. How old are you?
17-26- score 4
27-37- score 3
38-47- score 2
48-58- score 1
over 58- score 0

3. What do you weigh?
Enter the first two digits of your weight in pounds.
(for example, if you weight 198, you will add 19 to your score)

4. How tall are you?
Under 5’1- score 0
5’1-5’10- score 1
Over 5’10- score 2

5. How do you spend most of your day?
Sitting down? score 0
Occasionally sitting? score 2
Walking most of the time? score 4
Doing physically hard work most of the time? score 6

My tally:
Female – 2 WWP
Age between 27-37 years – 3 WWP
Weight at first 170 pounds – 17 WWP
5′ 10″ tall – 1 WWP
Occasionally sitting – 2 WWP

————-

25 WWP

Plus you get 35 WWP flex points for each week that you can use whenever you need to (outings, special occasions and craving) but be advised that it slows down weightloss. Then you count with every food you eat, snack, devour until you reach your allowance (and flexes). I also keep a Food Log during the day.  You can register at Weight Watchers or find resources about food points.

Here’s what I ate during one day of Weight Watchers diet…

The Food Log I used:

Food Log_06.16.2014

My Daily goal is 25 WWP so I did really well that day… All in all I lost 6 pounds the first week so it’s working even though you won’t loose that much every week…

Two tips:

  • Look for point conserving products and you are good to go!
  • Doing sports and being active actually earn points so don’t sit on your bum thinking about food too much! (I’m talking from experience when I get busy it is so much more bare able!)

See you soon!
