Well, I had this big goal to give up sugar in 2008... but you know what - that's crazy! Why give up that evil sugar - when I can still eat it in smaller quantities and still lose weight - thanks to Weightwatchers online! I started it just over two weeks ago - and at my first weigh in on Feb 14 - I lost 4.5 pounds! I was totally thrilled with those results. It was enough to keep me going and not blowing it all on Valentine's chocolates. I only ate 3 chocolates that day.

And besides that I got a ice cream maker for Christmas and I'm going to make lots and lots of ice cream this year. I've already made many different flavors. My favorite is coffee with white chocolate chunks. But luckily the banana ice cream I make is only 2 POINTS per serving. So I can have a serving of banana ice every night - I can still eat my treats and lose weight - as long as I stick to the POINTS system (flex points) and eat all my vegetables and drink all my water.

I'm really quite excited about this. I did Weightwatchers a few years ago and lost weight - I finally decided that I needed to do this again - because I just couldn't do it on my own like I thought I could. I just need the tools from their program to keep me on the right track.

I was so amazed that first week losing 4.5 pounds - because I ate quite a lot of ice cream and chocolates that first week - thanks to those 35 flex points that I hadn't use all week long... man I love those flex points!
