Whenever I’d hear Weight Watchers say that you can eat whatever you want–just in moderation–I’d roll my eyes. Sure, you can eat fettucini alfredo–if you only want half a serving and to starve for the rest of the day. But now that I am in the right mindset, I see that WW really is right. With a little advance planning, you can fit most of your favorites into a single week–just not a single day.
For example, I decided yesterday that I wanted a delicious Sunday breakfast of waffles, scrambled eggs and sausage. But I also knew that we’d be having a relatively big dinner at my parents’ house for my brother’s birthday. We decided in advance to make breakfast brunch instead. By eating at 11 a.m. (I had grapes earlier to tide me over), we can skip lunch and have a more decadent breakfast. I thorougly enjoyed all 15 points’ worth, and it reminded me that I really don’t need to deprive myself if I do just a bit of advance planning.
Then again, I get 32 points in a day. I’m still not sure how those with 22 points manage it. But I can’t wait to get there and find out!
