From Across The Pond

While trolling on the internet one night, I found out something very interesting.  Weight Watchers UK has different "stuff".  Using an app called Pocketmag, I was able to download the UK version of the WW magazine which comes out every month (unlike ours which is every 2 months)! The articles are good even though I don't understand their metric system. Losing weight and weight loss is the same no matter who you are or where you live. A long time ago, I used to buy the magazine (our version) just for the recipes.  But since beginning this journey, I read it cover to cover. Between the US and UK versions, I have plenty of inspirational material!  

And while I was reading the magazine, I discovered that they have different WW brand food!!! After making this discovery, I found that I could order some of it on!! So, I ordered a package of Caramel Wafers (just 2 points!) to try them out. It took 6 weeks to get here but well worth it! This will be a once in a while kind of treat since it took so long to get. 

I was much more mindful of what I ate this week, And I took home the Saturday meeting tracker, which means I double tracked. Avoiding sodium laden foods and reducing the amount of "treats" certainly paid off - I was down 2.2 this week (weighed in early since we are going away).  Camping this weekend so planning WW friendly snacks and foods to take.  :)
