Jersey Mike's

I had 17 points left for the rest of the day when I got off of work. Wade had planned to make tater tot casserole for dinner, but when I got home he was still asleep. At this point I was super hungry, so we decided to go out to eat. I looked at the Weight Watchers app and saw that my favorite sandwich at Jersey Mike's was only 11 points. I had never had it on wheat so I practiced ordering in my head so I wouldn't mess up. I proudly ordered my sandwich, started to log my points and realized I had ordered the wrong size! The mini is 11 points but a regular is 19.5!!! I can't order another sandwich... What do I do? Lie to the app? Nope, that's just cheating myself. So I recorded it as ordered. The more and more I thought about it the more upset I got. This sandwich is not worth all this and especially not worth 20 points AND going 3 over for the day. So, I am guessing you are wondering what i did. Well... I ate half the sandwich, recorded it as a mini and spent the rest of dinner blogging about it. Wade is still eating his full size double meat sandwich and I didn't want to watch. Weight Watchers day 3 was a rough one... but I have managed so far. Maybe blogging will fill the void of food - maybe not.

My mom was 285lbs when she started weight watchers. It took her about 2 years but she is now a size 1!!! She never had surgery! All she did was WW and walked then worked her way up to running. She now works out about 6 days a week and loves it! If she can do it so can you! I have faith in you! She is the queen of WW and I am sure she would be happy to answer any questions you might have:)
