Points!

Ok.. Today I decided to try to become more serious about dieting..I have racked my brain on this one..What diet? How many calories? Low fat? Low Carb? I was so sick of the questions..I have done Atkins before and it is a pain.. I decided today to start counting points! I went online and found this handy dandy little calculator that counts the points.. http://www.webmilhouse.com/pointcalc.php I am so excited about this! I know, it doesnt take much!!! But anyway, I also found how to calculate my points and I realized that I could have about 24-26 points a day.. That sounded ok.. I then looked online to see how many points 3 slices of pizza from Dominoes was.. OOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMGGGGGGG! Umm.. a WHOLE days worth of points.. I guess I will not be eating that anymore..

I have someone I know who has inspired me to do this..Her name is Debbie Fulgham..She has lost about 65+ pounds doing this..She actually joined Weight Watchers..I dont feel the need to do that but I do feel the need to count points..Debbie looks great.. I hope to be able to stick to it like she has.. She calls herself the "point nazi" haha.. She says she is VERY stingy with her points..Ill keep you informed on this in the days and weeks to come..

Thanks for the calculator link. It will help motivate me to stay away from Publix's 2 for one Pizza specials.

NO!! Buy the 2 for one pizzas from Publix, as long as they are the Red Baron or the Freschetta! My husband is a rep for Red Baron :)HAHA And thanks.. I hope that it generates me some business.. Gets boring in this store when there is no one coming in..

LEIGH!!You are so cute! I stumbled upon this calculator yesterday..I dont care to go to any weight watchers meeting..To me, its almost like a cult.. HAHA Seriously, I havent been to any meetings as an adult but I remember tagging along with my overweight aunts as a child and it was like a religion..They would all meet and weigh.. After that, they would all share things they found out and their issues that week..One time, one shared that SOUR CREAM had less fat and calories than butter. So after the meeting, they all went to the "Western Sizzler Steak House" and I mean LOADED UP on the sour cream on their potatoes.. LOL
