Typical day on WeightWatchers

So far I have been paying attention to portion sizes, and not trying to cut down quantities, really, but cutting out a few small things here and there (like candy, pretty much entirely.

According to the suggested POINTS goal, I’m doing well and coming in under the suggested amount. One day was well under the daily (41 points), and the other day was over the daily amount, but uses less than 1/7th of the weekly overflow (35 extra/week).

Here are two typical days of POINTS values.

So, all-in-all it looks like it might work out well; it’s too early to say, but I’m cautiously optimistic. So far I have used WW pretty much as a tracking tool only, and I haven’t taken advantage of their discussion areas, recipe ideas, or whatever else they’re offering for the online package. I could probably do the same tracking on my own, but this is convenient for now.
