I am losing weight slowly but it is steadily coming off. The pro points system suits me down to the ground. I can eat what I want when I want as long as I count all my points. Easy! Well most of the time it is easy other times it is a struggle to stay within the daily allowance. Although that is what I am loving about this is that you also get a weekly allowance to use anytime you want. I tend to keep mine for the weekend and have a chinese.
I started out on 36 dailies and 49 weeklies. With the 20.5lbs I have lost since starting weight watchers I have lost 3 of those daily points but I still get all the weeklies (you never lose them they are for everyone). It is all a balancing act. Eating healthily but still having the things you enjoy throughout the week keeps me in check.
For instance yesterday I ate a cadbury's crunchie which was 5pp and it was worth every single one of them. I logged into ww online and logged it in. Altogether yesterday I used 38pp so that was all of my allocation of 33 dailies (which you have to use) plus I used 5 from my weekly allowance.

Anyway enough about weightwatchers. Couch to 5k is going great I am starting week 4 tonight. I am not getting 3 workouts in 7 days done more like every 10 - 12 days. It is definitely getting easier though and I am actually loving getting out and running. The fact the clocks went back last weekend is an issue though as I used to run on the canal but with it being so dark so early now I am not going to be doing this anymore. I now have to use the roads! My issue with that is people will see me. I know how stupid that sounds but I am still very overweight and probably look a right site. Why oh why do we have to be self conscious.
I will persevere and get on with it though because I am enjoying it and don't want to stop plus it helps with the weight loss obviously.
I almost forgot I have signed up to Park Run and this Saturday morning I will be doing 5k. Not necessarily running it all but I will complete it and then I will have a time to beat and will hopefully improve every time. Park Run is every Saturday morning at 9am and although I would rather stay in bed I also can't wait to get out and do it. I am guessing at some point during the 5k I will be less enthused if I remember I will take my camera and get some pictures.
My ticker up there at the top of the page is almost half way and I would be over the moon if I got to the halfway point with my next weigh in. So I will be working my butt off this week to try and get another big loss of 3.5lb unlikely but I may as well try right, what I have got to lose? Apart from the 3lb I mean :)
