I’m going to rant now. Fair warning.
So it’s Weigh-in day at Weight Watchers. And I’m pissed off. I measured and counted every single thing I consumed this week. I was between 4 and 14 points UNDER my consumption requirements 4 days out of 7 and went over only on one day, was right on target the others. I only used 8 of my weekly bonus points on the day I went over. I drank my water and ate my veggies. And I gained .2 of a pound. AAArrrggghhhhh……
I know someone’s going to say I didn’t eat enough and put my body into starvation mode. There is NO WAY I didn’t eat enough. There is also no way I ate more than I was supposed to. So. What to do now.
I’m going to keep on going….hopefully next week will be better. Maybe my body is adjusting…maybe it’s hormonal. Who knows? I’m going to completely cut aspartame out of my diet this week as well. I’m still drinking a moderate amount of diet soda and I’m going to quit altogether and see if that helps. There is research that appears to show a link between aspartame consumption and the inability to lose weight. So I’m going to try that.
I’m also boycotting PepsiCo. I’m so mad at them I just want to spit. THIS IS WHY. This company makes billions of dollars a year off of FAT people and they have the nerve to do this?? And I quote:
“Diet Pepsi will soon be available in a “taller, sassier new Skinny Can” that the company says is a “celebration of beautiful, confident women.” I also love how at the end of the article they say that the old “fat” packaging will still be available for those who prefer it.
So I’m not going to buy anything made by a company that chooses to celebrate “beautiful, confident women” by manufacturing a “skinny” can.
