A little bit about me. I'm Vickie, mommy to Hannah. I've never been skinny (most of my family is overweight) but since having Hannah I've really let things slide and am not happy. So time to do something about it! After all it's no one's fault but my own if I don't make changes! I'm married to Stan who is skinny! And tall and is one of those people who can eat pretty much whatever he wants. Luckily he is a good guy though and is really on board with the plan and is even portioning his own food and not having as many snacks and sweet things (well around me at least 0
So far I really like the plan. I joined the Online group as I don't have a car to get to meetings and don't fancy waiting on a bus in the dark alone It's great though. They have an online calculator that helps you keep track of your points through the day.
My daily point allowance is 31 right now with 35 "extra" points for the week. I need to buy a scale to do at home weekly weigh ins so am not certain of my weight right now. Planning to do that this weekend as well as buying some healthy foods!
I've only done one recipe so far! We really need to go grocery shopping (payday is Friday ) and until than I'm stuck with what's in the house and there's not much in the house
what do you all do for "treats"? I was thinking of buying some of the chocolate pudding cups (fat free of course ) and they have some decent looking popcorn recipes on there that we are planning to try
