This week so far has been a weight watchers points black hole. Saturday we went to mexican food for a friends birthday. I haven't been very good with planning my meals and before I knew it I had gone through my entire weekly points balance. This has been a bit of a challenge since my weekly points don't reset until Thursday.
I see tracking as a way to remind myself of how much I'm really eating. It's kind of baffling to me that it's such a wakeup call every time. And every time I think, "Oh, I'm not that bad, I probably go a little over my points, but it's not that far off." Yeah, I'm off by about a mile.
My weight watchers membership expires the end of this month, so I decided the cost effective strategy would be to finish out the month at weight watchers and then to join the gym next month. In the meantime I've decided to keep track of my points (something I haven't hardly done since I started WW). I'm glad now that I did because, like always, I'm not nearly as on track as I think I am. So perhaps these weeks will help me get back on the right eating path so that my exercise efforts aren't wasted!
