My thoughts on my weekend, and my weight loss tips

I had a pretty good weekend. We did a lot of dishes, went shopping at the discount grocery store, and then went to a party last night. The party was good. I met a fellow blogger for the first time, and spent hours talking to people and being social. This morning was an early one, since I was singing at church.

I've been thinking about what I've learned through Weight Watchers. Now, my weight loss ins't drastic. It's about a pound a week (which means I should hit my goal weight in a year). But here's what I've learned.
  • If I deny myself, I'll end up bingeing. So portion control is important. I made desserts in muffin tins, and know the point values of them. I'd rather have 3 Hershey Kisses now, then eat the bag later.
  • Portion control. I keep small bowls and plates around. Also package up leftovers in small containers soon after we eat, for lunches.
  • Don't get discouraged. You may gain. Well, if you can, figure out why, and try to see if you can overcome it the next week.
  • Weight yourself at the same time every week. It'll give you a more accurate gauge of your weight loss.
  • EXERCISE!
  • And let others in on this. They can cheer you on!
And now, I'm having a small bowl of Mac n' Cheese.
