I hope everybody is having a great week so far!
Welcome to my WIAW post, where I share a day of eats on Weight Watchers. I have been progressing slowly with my weight loss. I started Weight Watchers on 10/11/13, and I have lost 19 pounds so far. So YAY for that! I updated my About page recently with my whole back story. So check that out if you have not already.
Breakfast: Spinach and red bell pepper scrambled with egg white (1pp), topped with thin cheddar (1pp) and one eighth of an avocado (1pp) on light wheat (2pp). I had two clementines on the side (0pp). I also had two cups of coffee with half and half plus sugar (2pp for the two cups).
Lunch was a light Flatout wrap (2pp) with light veggie cream cheese (1pp), uncured organic ham (2pp), thin cheddar (1pp) and alfalfa sprouts (0pp). I also had some baby carrots and red bell pepper strips dipped in hummus (2pp), which I measured out for portion control purposes. It is dangerous for me to eat hummus out of the container, or I will lose track of how much I am eating! I had a side salad with light homemade vinaigrette (1pp).
Snack was popcorn (4pp). Picture is recycled.
I love popcorn so much! I really prefer to make it myself so that I know exactly what is in it. Both from a Weight Watchers standpoint, as well as wanting to avoid all of the fake stuff they put in the prepackaged variety. I make my own, and if you haven’t already seen it, I posted a video tutorial here.
Dinner was some shrimp (3pp) baked with garlic in Kerrygold butter (1pp). (Side note for my local readers – they have Kerrygold butter at Costco in Birmingham now! YAY! I saw it Monday.) I also made some parmesan cheese grits (6pp) and lima beans (2pp) to go with it. It was yummy!
I just wanted to leave you with a work of encouragement. For those of you that missed my Facebook post, I saw this article about the power of making 1% improvements, or marginal gains. If you have been discouraged with slow progress in your weight loss, or in any other goal, let this encourage you!
Small changes really do add up. What are some examples of small changes that you are making to achieve a big goal? Leave me some comment love below, and let me know!
