I completed my second week of Weight Watchers and I am down an additional two pounds which takes me to a grand total of 4.8 lbs.  I can see the numbers going down on the scale, but my clothing doesn’t feel loose yet; this could be because some of my threads were becoming pretty tight, so I think once I am down ten lbs. I will start to feel it.  

I would love to brag up Weight Watchers and tell you how easy the program is, but for me it has been tough.  My second week was harder than my first week, I attribute this to the false fervor of starting something new & positive for myself & realizing by week two this is going to take some effort to maintain.  

One of the things about Smart Points is you have to make “smart” choices and one substance which really jacks up the points is SUGAR.  

A fun size Mars bar is three Smart Points that is 1/10 of my daily allotment for the day.  Not worth it.

Whereas a cup of fruit is zero Smart Points!  Fruit is the smart choice, but of course when you want a Mars bar, you don’t want to eat fruit.  There is no comparison! 

In my second week I found I was really craving sugar and feeling irritable because of it.  I was also experiencing headaches.  One day at work, I was super bitter because I was feeling deprived (please note I normally eat whatever I want if I am craving it), I had a horrible headache and people’s voices sounded louder than normal.  I am pretty sure I was hangry.  I also believe I was going through sugar withdrawals.  

I survived week two and I lose two more lbs.  I am now beginning week three and I am hopin to lose a bit more this week.  Slow and steady wins the race & I am hoping to cut refined sugar out of my diet as much as I can.  Time will tell! 

Please feel free to join me in my weight loss & becoming physically fit journey.  I could use the support and hey, misery loves company 😉
