Wed menu brief

Weigh-in tonight and I just realized that it's only 2:00 and I've already eaten 16 points today. Giving my head a shake and wondering what the heck I was thinking.

B-fast: Oatmeal, jam, 1C LF soy drink (5pts)
Snack: Coffee with whole milk, black bean fudge (2pts)
2nd snack - and this is the bad one: 1/4C soy nuts (4pts - WTH?)
Lunch: PC BM Sesame ginger chicken with 2cups extra veggies, 1/2C left-over hot&sour soup (5pts)

Mostly, it looks good except for the soy nuts. Fortunately they don't weigh much - why didn't I bring 1/4C pretzels for 1pt instead?

Also, I'm tried to get the bulk of my water in before 2:00 so it leaves my system before 6:30 when I weigh-in. I'm trying to reach 8cups and have just finished 7. Hard to believe I spent years dehydrated with headaches a few times/week. I've had 1 mild headache since starting weight watchers - now that's a benefit that can't be weighed!

You know, I can stress a bit about this stuff, but at the end of the day - I guess sticking to plan (or getting back on plan after a slip-up) is what counts. Not just today's weight results, but next week/month/year - that the results WILL be there (eventually) regardless of whether I ate soy nuts or pretzels for snack on Week 8 weigh day.

I say bring on the soy nuts. The other health benefits they bring can't be overlooked. Plus I read somewhere that protein won't be stored as fat while carbs will. Protein you don't need will just go through you. (but if you get enough cals from protein and have extra carbs they will be stored as fat). I've been eating a handful (that's the hard part) of nuts every day and it's working for me! (plus keeps you fuller).
Good luck with the challenge!

That's right - this is a journey and everything that you learn and experience cannot be judged by a scale.

Good Attitude & Good Luck!
