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.

Is it your first few weeks on ww? A lot of times it's your body getting adjusted, though you do need to eat most if not all your points.

I lost 6 my first week and they looked shocked and then just shut up. I don't think they understand that most healthy vegan foods are very low in points or free. Keep up the good work!

My friend lost a whole ton of weight really fast and they ended up having to take out his gallbladder recently. I don't know if it was a side effect of the massive weight loss but the doctor seemed to think so I guess.

I lost 30 pounds when I went vegan (I know you're already vegan but switching to more healthy choices), and it came off very dramatically and quickly (and no one yelled at me...). I know they're the "experts" but you know your body best. Do what feels right for you!
