Never keep up with Joneses. Drag them down to your level. It's cheaper.

As Kylie Minogue would say, WoW, WoW, WoW, WoW! What a great first day of ProPoint results at the scales, yesterday my scales saw a massive 159lb weight loss; I saw lots of smiling and surprised faces. The feedback has been fantastic, a few members hadn’t had time to sit and read the folder so were going to do that this week, but those that had were happily walking round the supermarket and sitting on the floor in the kitchen with their new little ProPoints calculator working out all the new points and boy was it worth it when they lost weight.

Some members were a little concerned about the Zero ProPoint fruit, remember it’s about eating until you are satisfied which we all know takes a bit of practice but can be mastered. And to reassure you, I’ve never had anyone join Weight Watchers with a fruit problem!

A satisfying amount of fruit and veg has been taken into account in a members daily allowance – so if you cut back because you’re nervous it’s free, then you are actually depriving yourself of something that’s already been allowed for.

On the other hand – if you’re stuffing yourself on fruit then it’s likely you are eating more than the system has built in. Eat until satisfied is the message with fruit. Don’t make fruit the baddie. Remember fruits are some of the healthiest foods there are.
When you get yourself a piece of fruit, take one piece (this can be used with any food) and remind yourself you can have seconds (after all Weight Watchers has given you a 49 weekly ProPoint allowance for such an occasion with none zero foods)! Eat a bit slower, and then check in with your stomach before grabbing for something else.

It’s brilliant to see such weight losses in the middle of November when people are usually struggling to stay afloat because their thinking about Christmas and losing the will. But it’s still 6 weeks away and a lot of weight can be lost in that time, I mean 159lb was lost in just one day!

I just about managed my meat-free Monday but it was difficult, I can’t believe I was a vegan for 8 years! I did succumb to a chow mein from the Chinese takeaway, I’ve been wanting one for weeks now, so it was Alfies lucky day because I picked out all the chicken for him ;-) I had to have the Chow Mein, it had started coming to me in my dreams!

In the words of Oscar Wilde "The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself." (The Picture of Dorian Gray, 1891)

Translated – a little of what you fancy does you good, I still managed to still within my daily allowance of 29!

Remember life starts now?

Are you living yet?
You’re not alive unless you’re living!
