Friday April 30 and Saturday May 1...

Catching up the past couple of days...

First of all...Qristina, my beautiful daughter-in-law, reads my blog and asked if I use a food scale. The answer is yes. I use the digital scale I bought at one of my WW meetings. I paid $40.00 for it and it has proven to be worth every penny! It has points values for certain foods already programmed into it, which I don't use. The thing I really love about it is that I can put my plate on it, zero it, and weigh the food right on my plate.

There are a couple of other tools I use that make this Weight Watchers journey easier. One is the mobile app for my iphone...I love this application soooo much! It makes tracking my food and activity so easy and it's always with me. Along with using it to track my foods, I use it to help me make choices in restaurants or at the grocery store.

The other thing is my Weight Watchers Pedometer. I bought this at my WW meeting as well. It was $24.00 and I absolutely love it. I simply wear it every day and it counts my steps and calculates my activity points for each day. It also counts distance and time spent moving.
