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)
