Daily Point Target : 26

22 to 27 points seemed to me like I was going to be hungry all day long while doing this. But, I've found that it's a tad challenging fitting it all in.
I can eat salads like they're goin' outta style, so you'll probably see a lot of those on my updates. I'm trying to just squeeze lemon juice on the salads, as a substitute for the salad dressing - but I'm a total Ranch girl, and I might up giving in and taking the points hit :) I seriously could eat a salad with a baked or grilled chicken breast cut up on it everyday!
I know that water is going to be a struggle with me. I am a juice kind of gal. But, the more I thought about it... I really would rather be able to have a couple more snacks than 1 glass of juice.
Breakfast has been a struggle for the past 3 days for me also. I'm just not a breakfast person, and am working on training myself to be. One thing that I've noticed is that I'm not as hungry during the day. From what I'm reading, that's due to ... eating breakfast :)
I'm still figuring out all the features on WW.com - and trying to decide if I want to combine the WW meeting with the Online features, or just stick to the program online. There's a coupon I believe you can take to attend a free meeting that's posted on the WW homepage. I think I might check it out just to figure out what would be more beneficial to me.

According to WW online, my "goal weight" is...

113 lbs.

Want to know how much weight I need to lose?
(let me say I cannot believe I'm posting this, my DH doesn't even know my weight...)
80 pounds.

Yep, I'm 5'3 and 193 lbs.

My 10% difference is:

174



It's overwhelming, but the reading that I'm doing on WW.com is helping. It's making it not seem like some never ending battle.
I like seeing others' weight loss amounts too. It makes you think "If they can do that, I can do it".
Plus, I'm TTC now - and I want to be as healthy as I can possibly be. The extra weight that I'm carrying around can be a contributing factor to why I haven't conceived yet. I'd rather work my ass off to lose this weight, than do any more rounds of Clomid.

I've also decided to start with the Flex Plan, like Amber is doing. I think it seems a little simpler. The nice thing about WW online that I see, is you're able to easily switch plans.

I'm working on building to courage to post some pictures similar to Ambers - but my mind is still reeling at
1. The fact that I'm 193 pounds
2. The reality being that I need to lose 80 pounds

Roni, you can do this. It's going to take work, but we both knew that going into it.

For your salad, the salad spritzer things are pretty good, and low in points. I got the Caesar and the french ones. 10 sprays is a serving size, but that even seems like a lot to me. You might wanna try 'em!

Thank you for being brave and open, and willing to share this journey with me. (((hugs)))

You can do this! I have faith in you...both of you! Also try out the Kraft Free Ranch. It's actually pretty good and low points.
