Bunny Does Weight Watchers…Again

November 6, 2016

Well, the first step is the hardest, and Bunny took it. She walked into a Weight Watchers center, signed back up, and stepped on the scale. The Dreaded Weigh-In!

As it does every once in a while, WW has changed its program. (Weight Watchers and Bunny have known each other so long, she hopes it doesn’t mind if she calls it “WW” for short. We’ll let you know if we get a nasty-gram from Oprah.) Smart Points are now Points Plus. In order to determine a food’s points, you only need to look at the label, add the trans fats to the carbs, subtract the 1/4 the fiber, multiply by 5/17 the calories, add the unsaturated fats to the serving size, divide by pi, and multiply by the age of your youngest child.

OK, that’s not quite accurate, but the point is, the formula is a little tricky, and Bunny wishes she hadn’t passed up the online tools, thinking she could do the math in her head. Online tools, here we come! Once she can figure out the points without a slide rule, she’s going into the pantry with a magic marker and writing the points on all the food!

Bunny gets 41 points every day, and 42 extra for the week. Fruits and veggies are free (even bananas)! For the first few days, Bunny’s task was to figure out how much of what to eat, and when. She’s getting the hang of it. It’s Day 3 and she has nearly hit the target all 3 days.

They made her set a goal for the first month (apparently people get discouraged with weekly goals, but almost everybody loses some weight in a month). Bunny’s goal is 9 lbs. She thought she’d lose a lot the first week, then 1-1/2 lbs. or so each subsequent week. She forgot about Thanksgiving.

Stay tuned!

    I don’t know how anyone could figure out the WW points without the online tools! I’m an online member and I live by my tracker/scanner app! This is my first month back on plan too! Good luck to us!

      You almost need an engineering degree to work out the computations! Bunny broke down and bought a little $10 points calculator from WW. It helps. Good luck on your journey!
