Two days into WW dieting and we're doing well. J has been very solid about following what's on the menu, while I sip wine after dinner. I'm not sure how many points half a glass of wine is, not yet, but I'm not monitoring points while doing the Fast Start. I'm simply eating with J and the food has been fantastic!
If you're the type of eater who likes to be full, the diet might be a "crash" for you. We have leftovers from our previous meals, like half a cup of chick peas or a cup of tomato soup, and that just means we can definitely use them for the last 3 days of this period that I was worried about after shooting up food budget.
We are eating until we're satisfied and I think that's one of the goals of the diet. We had lean sirloin last night and I was unable to finish an entire small piece! I can't believe it. The dog was happy about that. :)
And so the saga of dieting continues. If we manage to continue with this way of eating, we'll definitely save money. I'm planning to get a kitchen scale today and I hope to find a cheapo at the Warehouse. I can estimate weight but only to some degree, and I'm afraid that I've overdone some ingredients by a bit. I'm sure J wouldn't be pleased with that. :p
