Like the folks I am following, she has a pretty awesome blog!  Love her posts!!

I am definitely going to give this a try.  Almost like a drinking game…except you don’t get sloshed, you just get more amazing!


A Conundrum of Points

So, I’m still onboard with doing the Weight Watchers thang.  It is working great so far!  Almost too good.  Is it just me or are there like, 500 kazillion extra points to play with?  I have my daily allotment, which is just great for me, actually!  There are occasionally days where I have to figure what else I can eat to use them up.  But then, we get a weekly allotment of extra points.  For no apparent reason, from what I can figure out.



I did WW a little over 10 years ago, had a daily allotment of points and could earn extra through exercise.  I could use them sparingly day by day or even save those up to splurge big on one day.  Oh don’t get me wrong, those are still there!  I earn a few every day.  I walk a lot.  Especially yesterday, when I went to Toronto for the day.  For fun.  Because I love walking around for an entire sunless day in the freezing cold, wondering if my nose has turned black from frostbite yet, holding my breath so much as I walk by the frequent groups of smokers huddled together shivering on their breaks getting their fix, that I might pass out from lack of oxygen; all in the name of fun, spontaneous city exploration looking for adventure around the next corner, thinking I should have done this in the summer instead, moron that I am…

But I digress…

What was I saying??

Oh yes…so I get extra points for exercise.  I earned about 100 kajillion yesterday (a good fraction of 500 kazillion) from walking for nearly 4 hours (I was an honest little Do-Bee and subtracted for time that I sat for lunch and sat on a park bench on Toronto Island, on Wards Island, wondering how the ducks can stand to be in that water).

This is the beach.  (On Ward’s Island, to be exact.)

This is the beach on drugs. Any questions?

But I still have my weekly no-reason-at-all tally on top of that.  I guess they have figured out the regular points in a way that the extra make sense?  I don’t know how the math on that works.  What I do know, is if I were to use the free extra points and the earned extra points, I’m pretty sure I would have already gained about 10 kajillion pounds by now.  And another thing I know is, if I get to smaller sizes with this kind of eating, I am going to be thrrriiilllled!!!

So, for now, I am sticking strictly to the regular daily allotment and will consider any exercise a great contribution to the cause.  Just wondering, folks out there, have you done it or are you doing it now?  (WW, I mean!)  Would love to know your thoughts and input!
