4 Is More Than 2, and 1 Is Too Many
Isn't it funny the games we play in our head? For those of you doing Weight Watchers, I'm talking in points today. I was thinking about bread (even though I'm not eating it right now). I have a friend whose husband joined WW with her a few days ago. The bread he loves to eat is 2 points a slice. So if he has two slices for a sandwich, he is using 4 points for bread. To me, that's too much. I'd rather use only 2 (for those local readers - try the Prairie Grain bread. The one with the white label and black and red writing!!! It's delicious heavy wheat bread and only one point per slice), and then use the other 2 on something else. So in the case of bread, 4 is too many. But then if you were talking about something like Chicken or meat, then 4 is just right. My newest treat is this - 1 point for mini marshmallows, 1 point for chocolate chips. I measure it out on my electric scale and then snack on them throughout the day. I get a sweet treat all day, but don't use many points. What foods are you willing to spend points on?
1 is too many? This thought comes from recalculating your points. You know how as you go down in weight you have to recalculate your points and you lose 1 point for every 10lb increment? It always amazes me how that 1 point can throw off my whole groove! It takes me at least a week or two to get readjusted to the new point value, even if it's only a difference of 1. I guess it's true; 1 point really does make a difference! :) What tricks do you use to manage your points?
