Beyond The Edge Of Reason

I can't stop thinking about food. I lie in bed awake thinking about food. I sit at my computer looking for ways to make my Points go further. Even as I eat each meal I'm wondering when I can eat the next. I spend ages furtling through my cupboards working out the Points value of each product and wondering how I can possibly utilise it in a low Point meal. Hunger is never far away, and I'm resorting to bizarre food combinations - couscous sandwich? Yum! The best news all week is the discovery that I like my porridge made with water so I can eat more porridge for the same Points - result!

I feel like an alcoholic, constantly seeking my next drink, scary stuff! I'm really wishing this phase would hurry up and be over, my appetite suitabley reduced and my weight steadily falling. I understand that this is a process I need to go through, but Weight Watchers has totally sent me over the edge!

I'm the same. If I go on a diet, I end up thinking about food in a way I don't when I am not dieting!!

This is really why I just can't even entertain the thought of doing WW - it's too much of a diet for me! And diet means food obsessing...

But if it works - Stick with it! I suppose even WW deserves a fair trial ;o) I hope it gives you a boost.

free soup, free salad. cold soup as well as hot.

hang in there and thanks for the BBC link cos I don't get BBC!

Is it working though?

Free foods are definitely your friend - pack each meal up with loads of "freebies" (garlic mushrooms? yum! and free!). Roasted vegetables, yum! roasted vegetable sandwich?! not tried it, but it can't be any worse than couscous lol ;-)

I hope it is working for you - I'm a big ww fan, so perhaps not the best unbiased person to comment, but a change is as good as a rest and all that!

In truth I've struggled to stick to it, either limiting my points in the morning leading to binges when I can hold back no more, or trying to fill up properly during the day and running out of points early evening and still mega hungry, leading to binges blah blah blah...!

But I've just managed 4 days straight of sticking within my points and I think I'm kind of getting the hang of it. I'll be on the scales in the morning so wish me luck!

Also. look again at the BBC thingy and think about what it's saying....

and turn that knowledge to the WW stuff.

protein to keep your blood sugars more stable (have i remembered that right?) lots of veg with water in...

and plan treats in.
