I’ve written before about the down falls of working at home and being so close the pantry. Since reaching my lifetime goal weight eight years ago and keeping it, I’ve preached about Weight Watchers to many folks. They can’t believe that I lost 42 pounds. Yep – It’s True.
I learned a lot of valuable lessons with Weight Watchers that I continue to practice today. I don’t keep a journal anymore, it just comes naturally. And yes, sometimes I go overboard, but I know what to do and I have the discipline to move forward after enjoying some scrumptious pizza and beers with friends.
So today for breakfast I had one package of Quaker instant oatmeal, cinnamon if you really want to know (2 pts on WW).
And now I’m taking a quick pause for lunch. A gourmet (term used lightly) Turkey/Ham 1/2 sandwich with tomato on whole grain bread.
1/2 ounce Turkey Ham (1 point)
1 slice Butternut All Whole Grain 100% Whole Wheat bread (1 point)
Tomato (0 points)
Light spread of Kraft Real Mayo (2 points – I don’t like Lite Mayo so that’s a choice I prefer, you can reduce the point value if you don’t mind Lite Mayo)
So my half sandwich loaded with tomato and flavored with turkey/ham and mayo is 4 points total. And my decaf Lipton tea, unsweetened with lemon – 0 points, and it counts as one of my waters since it’s decaf.
Viola, Lunch is done and I’m ready to get back to work.
