The one thing I hate about the program is that a cup of fat free milk is 2 points, while a can of diet pepsi is 0. I'm a huge milk drinker - as in every meal - and I rarely drink soda. I know that milk is better for me, so it's frustrating that I have to use up my points on it! I can't go without! A 1/2 cup of wine is also 2 points.

I've been keeping a secret from you, blogland! I joined Weight Watchers. I really need to loose weight for health and vanity reasons, and this accountability is needed! I've been on it for a month now.
I had been counting calories for a long time but honestly it's hard to make myself stick to the goal! And even if one day I stuck to the calorie goal, the next day I would have a few glasses of wine and/or pieces of lasagna and reverse all the hard work I did earlier. It just wasn't working long-term.
I'm doing the WW online program, which allows me a certain number of points each day. In addition, I get even more extra points to use throughout the week. I can use them in a small amount each day, or lots in one day if I'm going out or something. I keep track of everything I eat online, which is easy most of the time. I haven't been too busy yet.
I signed up on January 15 and in this first month I lost 10 pounds. Ultimately, I'd love to loose a total of 30. Yikes, I really hate that I need to loose that much!
