Well, week 2 of my Weight Watchers experience has passed. And I have to say, I am about to through everything over board. Seriously it’s not, that I don’t want to diet, I set my mind on this and I wouldn’t stop right now. But I am getting more and more frustrated with it and I don’t think WW is the right thing for me. See, have you ever gone to the grocery store, looking at the vegetable and fruit isle and wanted to take out a knife to stab everything on there to death??? That’s how I feel right now. I mean, I love fruits, I love vegetables, but that’s kinda all I eat the whole day to feel satisfied. Veggies don’t have any kind of points you know. And instead of chocolate, candy or chips I eat a banana, a clementine or some snap peas at night.

Alright, don’t get me wrong, I eat my pasta for lunch or some potatoes with…, you guess… vegetables! Yay! (Urgh!) But I feel I’ve become more and more angry during those two weeks. I want chocolate soooo bad!!!

You might think that a look at the scale is motivating me not to stop? Well the first week it kinda was. I lost 1.3 lbs. Not that much, but at least it was a healthy amount of weight. (I have to admit, that I was a little jealous of room-mate cause she lost 4.9 lbs in that week! But she did some sports as well, and I didn’t.) This week the results were kinda devastating to me. I lost only 0.2 lbs! WTF??? Seriously??? I followed the rules, counted my points, didn’t overeat, but this was kind of… well I haven’t expected that. This was the point were I started to wonder if this was the right thing for me.

Now I’m starting this project to do a little workout at least every other day, to see if this changes a bit. If it does I guess I won’t continue WW cause it proves my point, that I don’t need to starve myself to death, to loose weight, if I just work out. I’m reading a lot of health and diet books, cause I really like them, and I might start something new. But I guess I just try out different things and sum up what I think is best for me.

Well, if anybody thinks I am weak now, let me tell you this. Everybody of us is different. Some of us need certain things, and others don’t. I love food, and I love eating. I want to eat a f***ing fat pizza sometimes without thinking “Oh gosh, that was way more than my points allow me”. I give kudos to everybody who has the dicipline to stick with strict diets or who are not craving something for the sweet tooth sometimes. But anyways,…

I’m not giving up (yet)! And I still want chocolate sooooooooooooooooooooo bad!!!!



Same procedure as every year. We all made our New Years resolutions. Mine was actually to make no resolutions. But anyways, somehow out of  coincidence, Roomate and I decided to start doing Weight Watchers at the same time. You’ve never heard of Weight Watchers? Well then you’ve probably lived under a rock for the last 20 something years or you simply have the genes of a supermodel paired with a fitness guru with a size 0 waist. If not, you now what I am talking about.

So I’ve never done his before, well maybe ’cause I am not really the kind of girl who loves dieting adventures, but I thought whatever, let’s give this ride a try. Alright, alright, alright. The actuall reason is another. Have you ever looked at photographs of you, and asked yourself  “where the heck have I been in this picture?” And then you realize you’re the fattie in the front covering everybody else? – Guilty! That’s the only reason my facebook page has so many portraits of me!

Alright, so yesterday I subscribed for the online program, which is new. It’s quite nice, you don’t have to go to the meetings, don’t have to carry a journal around with you, you simply type everything in that little program on your computer. It even has an iPhone App for on the go! Pretty awesome, right? Well, for those who have an iPhone at least. (Oh, dear people at Weight Watchers. Just imagine, even though Apple has kinda become the leading force in mobile comunication technology, still not everybody owns one of their mobile phones. So if you’re not willing to give one out for free, who cares about your stupid App???)

I updated my profile, filled in my facts, measured my size. And nope, I won’t tell you my weight, cause I’m a girl and we’re not talking lbs. Sorry! And then I started counting the points. And after day 2, I’m already almost about to give up. I am bored, I am hungry and I am starving! Maybe I shouldn’t surround myself with people who are nibbling on chocolate the whole time. Makes it pretty hard, to stay focused. So dear fellow work-mates, I dare you to eat that damn candy around me. If I’m going through hell, I’ll take you with me! #insert-evil-laughter-here. I’m even thinking of suggesting healthy snacks for our First Class passenger to my company. What about grapes, cherry tomatos or cucumber sticks instead of that mean chocolate covered almonds???

Besides, vegetables and fruits count o points. So here’s a little peek at my “dinner” tonight:

Apricots and clementines. Looks delicious, right? Hm, I wonder if you can deep-fry them, to make them taste more like potato chips…
