My issue with WW Online…

 

Oh heyyy… it’s been about a week since I last posted. :-/ Truth be told, I leave work late, hit the gym, make dinner and usually pass out on my couch and wake up around 1am and stumble to my bed.  My life has become so dayumm exciting.  I know y’all are green with envy, but whatevz…

So I’ve been trying this whole Weight Watchers Online business and I’m not a fan.  I’m paying around $18/month so I can ‘log’ or journal my food into a terrible application.  The app works awful on my Android & iPad.  The app online isn’t really any better.  And I think the worst part is that half the time I enter foods into the app, the food isn’t recognized.  Thus meaning I have to manually enter in the caloric info and then save the food so I can add it quickly the next time.  That’s the glory of the FREEEEE myfitness pal app or thedailyplate.com aka livestrong.com.  Both are free and have this ridiculously hugeeee database of everyday foods AND even stuff you wouldn’t imagine! 

So essentially I’m paying $18 for a real expensive point calculator.  Screw that, I’ll get a bootleg app on the Android Market or figure out the algorithm myself and create my own method.  I don’t get much out of the forums & articles on the site either, so yeah…

In my opinion, BIG waste.  The value I got from WW was going to the actual group meetings and weighing in.  And that’s like $15 perrr week! Ah hell…  I was trying to save money by doing it all online.. and ended up paying $18 each month for 3 months for a calculator.  Serves me right for trying to penny pinch.. ugh.

On another note, still PUMPED for that seminar of 4/12.  I can’t wait… and not because it’s going to be solve all solution.. heck no. Rather because I’m going to gain insight onto why the heck my body is so resistant/what I’m doing wrong/a good swift kick in the behind.

It’s never too late… …. for caltrate. Sorryyy, i had ta!

Okay, so I’m done with my rant.  If anyone else is doing Weight Watchers and loves it, pleaseee help me see ‘the lightttt’! And if you feel me and my pain… share your strife anyways! haha Hope everyone has a great Friday & excellent weekend! I’ll be posting a vlog shortly here in the future.

Much loveeee, babycakezzzes

    Tina, I didn’t know you had a blog. I was bored at work and found this.
    Several things I want to day:

    1. I miss you and I guess we will catch up Sat the 14th.

    2. I noticed that you are trying to exercise 5 times a week and that is TOO MUCH. This is a new deal in your life and you need to let it sink. So 3 days sounds reasonable. Make those 3 days count. Notice your weaknesses and your strengths. The other days that you are not at the gym, do something with a friend that does not involve FOOD. Like a walk, bowling, dance classes…

    3. CARDIO CARDIO CARDIO. I know you should do some weights and blablabla, but CARDIO is your best friend to lose weight. Stairmaster, Ellipticals, Bycicles, Jumping Rope…

    4. Limit your time at the gym to 1hr no more NO LESS.

    5. About Food: yeah we all love it. Try to reset your body; weekends are a good time to do it. Have a Friday night date with yourself and go to the super market to buy food only for the weekend. Avoid carbs and sugar that weekend. Here is a simple menu (I am soo lazy that I eat the same menu the whole weekend when I am doing this)
    Breakfast:
    -Eggs however you want them
    -Turkey or low fat ham
    -Low fat chesses
    -Any veggies if you want (I hate veggies in the morning unless is an omelet)
    -WATER
    Snack:
    -13 nuts (like cashews, peanuts, almonds…)
    -WATER
    Lunch:
    -Salad (vinegar and olive oil for dressing)… Starbucks is your best friend in salads so is chipotle.
    -meat
    -WATER
    Snack:
    -Spoon of Peanut Butter =) or a free sugar candy or ice cream =)
    -WATER
    Dinner: (min 2hrs before bed)
    -Broccoli or cauliflower
    -Meat
    -WATER

    This will take away your cravings for “BAD FOOD”. After the weekend then add to one of your meals a carb or a sugar. For example now you can have a sandwich from subway for lunch (the little one Young lady!). NO WHITE CARBS. Sugar only from fruits. It is hard to do, but YOU ARE WORTH IT and it has worked for me and my sister and my friend. After you can manage this, the rest comes easy. Try to do it for 2 weeks then we will talk =)

    6. When you meet with friends, do not meet for a coffee or dinner, meet for a walk around the park, mall… Stop meeting people for FOOD related stuff. Nothing comes for free so if people want your time, make them pay to you in calories burned. For example my sister and I go to the mall every weekend to put together a 10 dollars trendy outfit. That takes a lot of walking in the mall and trying on and off, plus motivates you to work out next week for the new outfit =). I also take a walk with Denis after dinner to the grocery store (30 min walk) to buy something “1 banana, or water or whatever”. I have a date with one of my friends every week where we dance with high heels like strippers for a whole 2 hrs =).

    7. WATER WATER WATER. Drink simple plain water for a week and you will see results in a snap. Forget about coffee and all the other stuff. Forget about Dunkin Donuts and Startbucks.

    8. About the club, see it as a workout place where you go all dressed up, with cool friends and hot guys walk around. Look for moves in youtube, I try a lot of striptease dances and lap dances and then try them at the club =) by yourself… Have fun WITH YOURSELF. Guys love to stare a girls that are in love with themselves. Come on! Right now you are not looking for a guy in your life, you have so much to deal with and losing weight is one of those things, soooo drink WATER at the club, get your workout bonus, and love it.

    Love ya
    Albe

    Tina! For a long time I felt the same way about WW online. Until I started using the online community liketge in person meeting community. For instance, I follow blogs of several people who have a similar lifestyle. Mid20s, woking, needto lose a lot of pounds. Their triumphs and struggles inspire me. It’s nice to find blogs through WW because ten all the bloggers are talking about WW. I then found a coupleof WW online groups that have people with similar interests. We an talk about how to handle food while dating, how to handle after work drinks witch co-workers etc. I think that one is called “20’s Group”.
    Lastly, I don’t want to start blog comment drama but I don’t completely agree with Albe. 3 times a week at the gym means you areat the gym less days each week than you’re not. 3x a week means only 12 days a month. It’s hard to commit at firstbut eventually your gym habits will become lifestyle habits. If your habit is 3x a week or 6x a week it will stick with you. And maybe it’s not 6 days at the gym. But You should commit to activity 6 days a week. And strolling from the far side of the parking lot to starbucks for a non fat latte doesn’t count 😉
    We should hang out for something active!!

  3. I always triеd tо lіvе а healthy life; the dog’s what I ever really thought you needed on earth to buy going. I had set off young, simply happy to want to be inside a eat my chocolate when I wanted. I must have been a computer nerd mostly; my mom would need me otherwise to end up getting some sort of soccer star, or just a kid who played sports. Instead I dedicated myself around the world of the net. I was hooked, remember my initial notebook would have been a beast; my father has pitched in to purchase it on my feet. I will not ever disregard the initial time I used America online, which was certainly one of the craziest moments of my being. I was able to see just what some others got done. Some sites where not grown not really purchased or parked, the chances where really unlimited if I Had stepped and also just looked. But using this method I additionally sat towards the computer a lot and prevented eating and eating and eating. This lead to me having some really fat and high years once I was a student in junior high school which would result in me being jeered from the least the time by every type of person on the net, when what I desired was to you need to be left alone. I was not ever one in every of those infant prodigy kids, those who might prove to be some of the world s most treasured people. No I only agreed to be a fat computer nerd, and I required to do something positive about it.
    This really is as I took on the forces of tvs and doctors. I have been completely searching the webs but got never really thought to be possibly simply go and see exactly what big companies where recommending at the time. Not realizing that the fact remains all mankind can vary from day to night, I desired my life to improve I was determined to locate a method. I had stumbled upon a show called Dr. Oz about a doctor who had been presented on Opra a while back for giving some pioneering weight loss tactics. But alternatively I just sat there curious what my existence had utilized to me. I got never thought that various things as common as going outside and owning a bit would assist. Heck not really flowing just finding the time not in my day to walk a surplus of chunk, possibly make a walk down some stairs or up them. These little straight-forward a few things I launched doing established cutting my pounds bit by bit, but there’s alwaуs a сhunk.
