Weight Watchers, Auto Correct and Pinterest! Whatta Week!

Drum roll please! Today I weighed in after my first week on Weight Watchers. I am doing the online version. I am allowed 29 PTS daily with 49 to use over a week for additional consumption.

It is easy enough to follow. If you are anywhere near a computer, have and iPhone or iPad, you cannot miss keeping track of what you are eating.

I have noticed that I have cut out many of the bad foods. No more brownies, ice cream, candy, potato chips, sweet teas, diet sodas, bread….I haven’t really noticed that they are gone. I just know that I haven’t seen them in front of me.

I am in this for the long haul, too. Even my child and honey are helping! David is actually counting HIS points, too. I am still giving myself one full year to get down to and maintain my goal weight. I think it is fair.

Today I weighed in 3.4 lbs less!! That sounds so little and at the same time it sounds like alot. I realize the beginning is always easier. But, a loss is a loss no matter what it is!!

Here’s what 3lbs looks like if you haven’t seen it before:

"One pound of fat!"

Multiply this by 3 and it is 3lbs!!! Can you imagine?

"A three pound gummy brain!"

This is actually a 3 lb gummy brain. Wow!!

So, I am going to do a happy dance because I lost!!

Speaking of happy!! I have been laughing to the point of crying since discovering a website called damnyouautocorrect.com For those of you who have smart phones, you will totally understand the meanings. Here’s just one example:


There are sooooooo many funny ones. They are not suitable for kids, though. So, be sure you don’t look at it while they are in the room. Let me know your thoughts after you have visited the site.

Another great way I have been spending my time is on Pinterest.

Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard.

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.

Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. To get started, request an invite and I’ll send it to you.

Okay, I must go back to work!!! We are closing out October’s issue of Valley Parent magazine and working hard on the Fall issue of Columbus and the Valley.
