Stupid vent about Weight Watchers (humor me I'm HUNGRY!) piog

How in the heck is a CUP of orange juice the same amount of points as a CAN of Mountain Dew?

And let me just say that I'm always hungry! I hope it gets easier because I don't think I can spend months being hungry everyday.

Oh and two eggs are NOT a filling food!

Ok I think I'm done now. I'm going to go and eat my pizza that I'm going to use the rest of my points for lol.

A cup of OJ has TONS of sugar in it, that's why.

I did WW back in the day, and it really does work. It will get easier.

Are you on the Flex or Core plan?

try boiling the eggs, for some odd reason boiled eggs filled me up better. The reason for the Mt.Dew orange jiuce thing is that if you look at the side of the can of MtDew its atleast 1 1/2 to 2 servings, be careful about that one. get real oranges, not orange juice, it's also more filling, because you have to chew it up longer. Keep drinking TONS of water, it helps. Enjoy your pizza

Thank you ladies. I did not know that about orange juice. I really need to learn more about food I guess lol. This is the start of my second week so I'm still trying to get used to it.

Forgot to add, I'm actually on the Momentum plan.

The point of WW is to get you to make smart decisions and learn a different lifestyle. Instead of 30 Cheetos, you can have a bag of Healthy Pop popcorn. You should be choosing healthy foods that don't have many points. That way, you can eat MORE but with less calories. Also, be sure to drink TONS of water. It fills you up.

Dear OP - Curious about the new  Momentum plan.  How does it differ from the Core or Flex?

You can also add a few low points things to your eggs:

Spinach, with a slice of fat free or soy cheese

add salsa to your eggs, over a slice of wheat  toast

Keep drinking the water, it helps keep you full.  Soon your stomach will get use and fill up on less food.  When I followed WW, it worked for me.  Enjoy your pizza : )

Have you tried not eating Salt; I use the non-Sodium kind, Smart Balance butter, mayo, etc.  And then I go to Aldi and get Fit & Active; I've also cut sugar; unless I'm craving for it then I'll indulge myself, and anything fatty.  Also try eating more fish; foods higher in Omega 3's; will help you maintian a normal, regualr weight.  I have RA; and I've went from 135 to 115 in just about a month.  Good-Luck; I know it's hard....
