"There is no such thing as a good call at 7 AM"

Today was a hard weight watchers day. I have been hungry since EVER and also I'm DYING because I didn't pack enough water and my head fell off hours ago. I'm still working on finding the right foods to keep me happy all day out and about and also the water. I haven't been drinking enough water for a long while now. Long ago I used to take two full Nalgene bottles with me to work and I was still always thirsty. I got out of the habit being at home, just filling glasses and not really paying attention and slowly I just stopped drinking as much as I should. I feel terrible when I don't drink enough water and since the pain isn't enough motivation to do things right I don't know what to try next. Public flogging seems a bit rash.

I'm trying to give myself a break this week as I figure out how to use my points to best advantage. If nothing else it's a good reminder about mindless eating and to pay attention to the little things. I'm also learning that some activities make me hungry like the wolf so it's interesting to see that next to my points for the day. It's an expensive tool though, at least to me. I really hate the idea of paying a third party to tell me to eat less food. I hate it a lot so I'm determined to get my shit together.

On the upside I'm getting good at eyeballing a cup of cereal and milk, I'm learning that snowshoeing makes me want to eat the WHOLE HOUSE and peanuts are a very high point snack. I'm seeking out either low point things I can eat a lot of or medium point things that'll get'r'done. I guess I have to conduct some tests, be a guinea pig, open my mind et cetera, et cetera. Can you use that twice, is that painfully repetitive? How scrambled are my brains today, let me count the ways.

Oooh, I haven't checked the points on almonds. Thanks for the pointer!

Ditch points, ditch diets, ditch beating yourself up, understand what your eating is really about and the weight will start to come off gradually. Honest!
lots of hugsxx

I'm glad you found something that works for you.

Yes, public flogging would be a little rash and a little punitive for failure to drink enough water. We save that for Haagen Daz.

Enjoy you post.
