Okay so it is day 6 of the "eating plan" I don't know what my progress is as far as my weight (i find that out on Wednesday) but I'm glad to have my husband on board for the weight loss battle too.
It's funny once you start writing down what you eat you really get a good understanding of how well, or not s well, you eat. After all my planning and counting I got to work today to realize I don't have any protien intake -that is no meat. Now I am not a vegetarian, so a little meat would be nice :0) So now I have to make another adjustment to my "eating plan" yes counting points is good but you still have to maintain a balanced meal.
18 points is the number of points I should have every day. Now a salad is worth 0 pts if there is no dressing but worth 2 if there is 2 tbsp of low-fat dressing. That being said a banana is also 2 pts so is a can of tuna.
So after my first week of points and meal recording I have come to the realization that this is going to be harder than I thought!
