If you throw it up, do you get the points back?

I think the reason I have been able to happily stay within my point range is because I've been working. Yesterday was my first day off since re-joining WW, and it was a bit tricky, but I was able to do great!  I just had to find things to do to keep me busy and to keep me away from the fridge! 

Late last night, I realized that I was actually looking and feeling slimmer, even though I know I cannot possibly have lost that much weight. Even the hubby agreed that my stomach just seemed flatter!  Weird! 

This morning I felt great, had my usual cheerios and coffee (not together, of course), and made my lunch for work. About 10 min before I was to leave for work, they called and I was not needed, so I got the night off.  We decided to go to the pool instead. By the time we got changed and were literally walking out the door, the sky opened up. Oh well. We went to the mall to look at wedding rings instead.

Here's where my day went bad.

We were hungry so we went to the food court. I instantly scanned for the places I could eat. Subway was the only logical choice, but I simply refuse to pay $5 for a ham sandwich. We decided on a Panda Express knock off. I got veggie fried rice (C'mon!  It's rice! How bad can it be for you?!) and the bourbon chicken (not breaded, but there was still a glaze). I ate all the rice and maybe 1/3 of the chicken and instantly felt bloated. I felt sluggish and I swear my belly was protruding! 

By the time we got in the car (about 15 min later), I was feeling nauseous. There was a moment where I thought I was going to be sick in the car. 

When I got home and totaled up what I ate, it came to 20 points! (12 points for 1 1/2 c of veggie fried rice alone!) I already had 6 for breakfast, so that means I have 1 left for dinner. Great.

The morale of this story? Next time, pay for the damn $5 ham sandwich.

  1. Trying to eat healthier when going out is difficult. Even if you think its good for you its usually not...especially fried rice :(

    I've been tracking my calorie intake for about a month now and limiting eating out. Subways new orchard chicken sandwich (no cheese or extra sauce) is yummy and not too many calories.

    Does WW give you extra points to eat if you work out?

    Keep up the great work! :)
