First things first, today's weigh in: 157.0! That is a 2.4 pound loss for the week, a week that inlcuded Thanksgiving!! My total loss is now 79.8 pounds, and I am 20.2 pounds from my goal. Yay me!
I mentioned yesterday that with the changes to the Weight Watchers plan the amount of WWPP allowed each day/week has increased from the old Points Plan. I don't want to give the values of all foods, but I would like to spotlight a few things.
My favorite breakfast, an english muffin with peanut butter was formerly 4 Points; it is now 7 WWPP. With a banana added, it was 6 Points, now it is 7 WWP. I love that comparison!
Raw almonds, my afternoon snack of choice, was 2 Points and it's also 2 WWPP.
My beloved Chobani yogurt was 3 Points and it is 3 WWPP.
A grande skinny vanilla latte from Starbucks was 3 Points and it's also 3 WWPP.
A grande nonfat chai tea latte from Starbucks was 4 Points and it's now 6 WWPP (the sugar [carbs] increase the WWPP).
Cottage cheese, 1/2 cup = 2 Points and 3 WWPP.
So that gives you an idea of the changes. It's clear that eating the healther stuff is better. Now, given that I'm a human Points calculator I will still be figuring Points and monitoring exactly how many WWPP I'm eating versus how much it'd be worth using Points. I want to know if the new plan is helping me or hindering me. I'm really excited to find out!
