Admonished by Weight Watchers

I was not so much congratulated on my recent weight loss (17 lbs in two weeks), as I was yelled at for losing too fast. I'm trying to limit sugar as much as possible, and increase healthier choices, and it's just falling off. They told me to slow it down or I might DIE. Okay, they didn't say that, but they listed a bunch of ailments/disorders that could result from that.

So, I'm trying to use up points eating more things that I'd banished for being too point-y: nut butters, bread, pasta, and rice. Now I feel stuffed to the gills when I go to bed, and yet wake up starving. I only buy whole grains, and white flour is no longer welcome in my house, so what gives? I think I'm going to start making more low-carb, high protein dinners with chickpea cutlets, tempeh, etc. and use my carbs for earlier in the day.

This is so exciting, isn't it? I'll start taking pictures again, soon.

Week one.

It was a hard week. Not because I was starving or missing anything (other than energy drinks, which are a whopping eight points per can!), but because my vegan ass ate a lot of stuff that was low in points. I ended nearly every day with a full belly and a surplus of points in the teens. Normally, one could just blow those on cookies or Peanut Butter Zig Zag, but I know myself very well. I can't have such things in my house because they trigger me like crazy.

Anyhoo, I lost ten pounds. Smiley face. Treated myself to a peppermint chocolate Luna bar. Which is only five points. I need to start eating avocados or something.

I have finally emerged from my depression cocoon and have decided to make a couple changes. First, I'm jumping back into the weight loss pool. Second, I plan to blog about it.

Those of you who knew me back in 2001, when I lost all that weight, , should probably recall the things I did with the bland, astronaut/school lunch food that was supplied by Nutri/System. Now the program has completely changed, but unless I decide to give up veganism (not happening), I don't plan on going back. I had some success on Weight Watchers for a while, so I'm doing that again. This time, no meetings (that shit's expensive), just online. I have a gaggle of broads to email with all day long about annoying things like, how many points in the handful of chocolate chips I just poured into my mouth, and what color our pee is.

The thing about the "new" WW program is the revamped point system. Now, fruits and veggies, for the most part, are zero points. I know that some things need to be counted, like dried fruit, smoothies, and bananas...after all, this ain't my first rodeo. But when I realized that my daily point value (which you're supposed to eat all of) is something pretty hard to achieve for a vegan, which begs the question, how the fuck did I get so fat?

Anyway, I hope you all are excited for updates about pounds and inches, and pictures of rabbit food. Or, um...rabbit food that's much more rabbit-y.
