So Weight Watchers has started this whole Freestyle program and completely screwed up my blog name. I’m sure they contemplated hard the ramifications for my blog before they did this, right?
Anyway….So being that I’m on maintenance I now have 25 Smartpoints a day instead of the previous 36. Let me tell you, I’m diggin’ it.
You see with the previous program I felt like I was eating even if I wasn’t hungry, which is what brought my fat ass to Weight Watchers to begin with! I am more in tune with my body then I have ever been in my life, and I know when I’m eating just to eat.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that – Every body does it. It’s when it becomes a habit that problems develop. To be in your healthy eating zone before you had to be within 3 points of your target, so I needed to eat 33 points a day to meet that goal.
With the new program you are allowed a range of 10, which is freakin’ awesome. If you are a healthy food fan and cook most of your food you’ll find a lot of the things you eat are now 0 Smartpoints. You might not need all those extras, and finally they aren’t making us eat them!
Breakfast 3 Smartpoints:
PB&J Overnight Oats
1 Cup Greek Non-Fat Yogurt (Fage is my favorite) 0 Smartpoints
1/4 Cup Old Fashioned Oats 2 Smartpoints
2 Tablespoons PB2 1 Smartpoint
1 Stevia packet 0 Smartpoints
1/2 cup frozen wild Blueberries 0 Smartpoints
Snack: 0 Smartpoints
Apple 0 Smartpoints
Lunch: 5 Smartpoints
Salad w/grilled chicken, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, romaine lettuce, and Bolthouse Farm Dressing: 3 Smartpoints
Chicken Lemon Rice Soup: 2 Smartpoints
Snack: 2 Smartpoints
Orange 0 Smartpoints
Enlighted Sea Salt Broadbeans 2 Smartpoints
Dinner: 6 Smartpoints
Stir Fried Vegetables with a Bulgar Wheat Substitution 6 Smartpoints
Snack: 4 Smartpoints
Cape Cod Potato Chips 4 Smartpoints a serving.
I ended the day with using only 20 Smarpoints. I wasn’t hungry at all so I didn’t see the need to eat 5 more just to get to 25, and that was okay! Love it!
I actually didn’t really need the chips, but I love them so I ate them. Just a serving to satisfy my craving and I was good to go.
What in the world has happened to me? This is why Weight Watchers works for me. Nothing is off limits as long as you control your portions.
