Tomorrow I go in for my second-week check on Weight Watchers. I rejoined almost three weeks ago and, since going back, I have felt great about my decision. I am finally taking control of something that was beginning to spiral out of control.
The first time I joined Weight Watchers I lost 30 pounds, had a baby and still got back to my goal weight pretty quickly following the plan.
And then I started cycling like crazy and stopped tracking and, for the past four years, I’ve been a bit unhappy about it.
Now I am finally taking control again.
Over the past two weeks I have had this cereal for breakfast more days than I care to admit. It has been perfect way to start my day and has filled me up. The honey, whole milk, nuts and fruit make it feel more indulgent than it is.
On Sunday I used skim milk instead of the whole milk (we were out of it) and it made a big difference. Go ahead and go for the whole milk if you have it. You’ll thank me.
