Any who I just can't believe it is this easy. No depravation, no cutting out cookies, no stopping snacking. Is this really going to work? I did get extra points for nursing so that helped for certain but even still there were days I didn't even use all my points. I stayed within my points plus (I still have 20 weekly splurge allowance points left). I didnt have to eat fake food with artifical ingredients but I did make a few small changes (changed to a different brand of ice cream cookies and obviously I decreased the portion sizes of high cal treats and increased the portions of veggies etc- i stippped flat out binging on things but I still get to have them- just not the whole box of cookies). I just feel like it didn't hurt enough or something. I guess I'll see when I weigh in.
