The weight watchers group that meets here every Tuesday was going to cost another $160 for 10 weeks. The new sign up date was around the 15th of this mon th but things come up in my daily schedule and I have not really gone to a meeting in a few weeks.

So today I officially signed up for the WW online program…for only $53 for 3 months. Thats less then half the price for 2 extra weeks…$107 less to be exact.
I had already signed up for the WW website and checked around at their groups and different member pages before today.

I decided to join the online program, because I still need to be accountable somehow, somewhere. The time since I left my local meeting up to today, has not been the best…I sorta stopped logging my food and not even checking points; which is why I gained almost 2 pounds. So I am jumping back on this WW wagon.

Now that I officially joined the online program; I have the option of tracking my food there and keeping track of my points. There is also an electric food scale that I could order from the site for $40 but think I will wait on that.

The Good Health Guidelines
1. Eat at least five servings of vegetables and fruits each day, (nine servings if you weigh over 350 pounds.)
2. Choose whole-grain foods, such as brown rice and oats, whenever possible.
3. Include two servings of milk products – low fat (1%) or fat-free – each day. If you’re a nursing mom, teenager, over 50 years old, or weigh more than 250 pounds, you should have three servings of milk products each day.
4. Have 2 teaspoons of healthy oils (olive oil, canola, sunflower, safflower or flaxseed) each day.
5. Ensure that you are getting enough protein by choosing at least a serving or two of lean meats, skinless poultry, fish, beans, soy products, and lentils.
6. Limit added sugar and alcohol.
7. Drink at least 6 8-ounce glasses of liquid a day. Water is the best choice.
8. Take a multiple vitamin-mineral supplement each day.

(a problem with those reccomendations is that I don’t have milk products every day…sometimes a week will go by without a milk product)
