Thought for the Day--January 29, 2011: Using Extra PointsPlus

I love the Weight Watchers' PointsPlus program, which allows for an amazing amount of food. You know those extra 49 Weekly PointsPlus? They can add up fast! My husband and I ended up at a mediocre Chinese restaurant, one without a grill. No grill = No choice. Lots of fatty foods I would never eat, even on a bad day, and the food wasn't even that good. So why would anyone eat high-fat mediocre food? It was late in the day, and I was hungry. I wasted (waisted?) 41 points on a bunch of nothing. When something like this happens, it's just better to move on and do better. NOTE: I would have felt okay about using the extra points had I at least enjoyed my splurge. It's okay, though. Tomorrow is another and better day.

Thought for the Day--January 25, 2011: Use Your Extra Points

Eat some extra food today, but make sure it's something you really love. Today's not a holiday, just an ordinary old Tuesday, so it's a good practice day, without relatives, friends, and enablers around to pressure you. Might as well begin living in the real world. Also, losing weight slowly will give you the best chance of maintaining your weight loss. These day-to-day thoughts may seem contradictory, but isn't life like that?
