12/2/10 Day 2 of WW Trial

How pissed was I this morning when I stepped on the scale and saw... 222?!@ #%@&#@!!!!

But all became clear about five hours later when I started my period.

Back to WW. Today went pretty well. I am actually under my points a bit, but that is mostly because I didn't eat much dinner. I have some wicked bad cramps right now and they make me a little nauseous. For the first time in a long time I had a big salad for lunch. Lettuce, tomato, onion, pepper -- all free. Greek dressing -- not so free. I need to get back in the habit of dipping my fork in the dressing instead of dumping it on my salad. It would've been better to spend some points on some chicken or beans instead of all that dressing.

So, yes, the cramps. I started to think something was seriously wrong with me today. Aunt Flo started this morning around ten. At lunch, I did eleven flights of stairs. About two hours later, my back started killing me, and I noticed some cramping start up too. By the time I left work, I was crying on the phone to my mom. It was so so bad. It was all I could do to hold it together at work and get through the last few tests. I was so close to either barfing or passing out at one point. I got hubs to pick up the kids, and I went home and slept on the heating pad for an hour and half. Luckily, my little rest helped. My back still hurts, but I took some Aleve (bad, I know) so the cramps are gone. Hey, it's not like I can pop a Vicodin when I have to go to work in the morning.

Besides having a crappy afternoon, I'm pretty happy with my food and exercise today. I finally acted on lunch time exercise. I usually have an hour, so there is plenty of time. Now I need this back issue to go away!

On to Day 3!

Of all the diets I was on, I found the WW points the easiest. I just counted 1 point for every 50 cal. I did it on line as I hated the meetings. If is works to get you back on track, good for you. There really is not RIGHT way with the band.

Yeah, I am not a meeting type of girl either. I tried that about a year before I had surgery, and I hated it. I'm so thankful they developed the e-tools.

Sorry about the horrible cramps. I pop the occasional Aleve liqui-gels. It helps.

Good luck with WW! You're right, the dipping the fork trick is a good one. Keep up your protein. YOU CAN DO IT!!!
