Well apparently this is the amount that WW says will allow me to lose weight. I believe a nurse once told me I'd have to be taking in about 3500 calories to maintain the 352 lbs.
I checked with Sparkpeople and they say if I want to lose 50lbs by Dec. 31st of this year I can eat up to 2500 calories and as low as 2000. I once manually changed my points, but I got a lot of slack
from a few people about it.
Though, I did some reading today and I've found a LOT of people who did the old WW points plan (I only got 39 points on the old plan) and they say the new plan is not working for them at all. The formula did change. They did used to count calories in the points calculator, but now its just fat, carbs, fiber and protein.
If I can stand to double track for a week, I might see how Sparkpeople comes out starting on Sat.
I'm not going post all that I ate. It really kept me from tracking daily on my WW. I felt like I was doing double the work and it was a pain. So I chose the better place to track food.
But today our afternoon meeting go moved up b/c of the snow storm coming in and so I had to wait until 12:30 with no snack (Hadn't planned on one b/c I usually do fine if I eat by 12.) and they meeting was a lunch meeting in our dining hall. Lucky my friend was working, but she said they really had nothing being served that was healthy. So I did the best thing I could and made a salad. Just about 3 oz of ham cubes, 3 cups of leetuce (romaine), 1/4 cheese shredded, 4 grape tomatoes, 2 cucumber slices and about 2.5tbsp of ranch dressing. I tried some of the fried shrimp and rice, but it was wayyyyy salt (and that is bad b/c I love salty stuff, but I guess using low sodium soy sauce lately has changed that). So I ate about a spoonful of rice and picked out the shrimp (about 5 mini shrimp). I had a chocolate cupcake.
Had med. salmon (almond crust) baked with some bake fries. I'll probably have some special K for a small snack. Had a serving of graham crackers with 1tsp of pb and 1/4 tsp of agave nector. 50 points total with bk added in.
I have one of the two salmon left for tomr. lunch and I have a 1/2 med. baked potato ready too. Stole and apple and banana from the dining hall to have my fruits tomr.
Probably would do better if I managed to stuff my face a little more with watery fruits. I don't have a love affair with most veggies (except green beans), but I don't mind fruit at all. So if I used watery fruits that are fresh they should keep me full and they are zero points. As long as I don't way over do it. I mean I wouldn't eat bananas non stop. A few cups of grapes may not be that bad though or watermelon.
