Weight Watchers Online Week 3

in Weight Watchers


Weight Watchers Journey Week 3I was absolutely delighted this morning. I was hoping that I had lost 3.5kg since I began 3 weeks ago, but in fact it was 4.5kg. Already I am feeling lighter – I know that sounds daft, but I really am – my knees seem under less strain and I seem to have more energy already.

In the video I discussed how I’m dealing with my love of red wine by eating less in the day time. A small glass of red wine is 3 SmartPoints, so I do try and make sure that I have at least 9 spare by dinnertime. I was worried that this might not work, but hey it seems to have done so quite nicely. If this means that I can still drink red wine on an almost daily basis and lose weight at the same time, I really am a happy bunny. I believe that when Weight Watchers started back in the 60s (I think), alcohol was strictly forbidden. This really wouldn’t work for me as I do enjoy the odd glass or ten. Luckily now, as long as you track everything you drink, it’s cool. I did ask an online WW expert if I could have 6 pints of lager and a slice of toast. She said that that would still work, but they do encourage a balanced diet. Fair enough.

In the video I mentioned that I had considered getting an activity tracker. The best ones would be the ones that work directly with Weight Watchers Online and its app. These are:

  • FitBit
  • Jawbone
  • Withings
  • Misfit
  • Garmin VivoFit
  • Apple Health
  • MapMyRun

What I really fancy is a Xiaomi Mi Band 2 as they are pretty cheap at the moment, but unfortunately they don’t work directly with the Weight Watchers Online app. I’ll look into this a bit more as the idea of logging activity and food/drink intake is what is really working for me. If I can combine this with a few gadgets and things, it makes it more fun for me.
