For some time I’ve been meaning to try out the Weight Watcher e-tools and see what it was all about.  However, having done weight watchers in the past, I just couldn’t imagine how useful it could really be.   I thought to myself, why would I want to type up my food when I could just write it on the weekly paper tracker.  But, boy oh boy was I sooooo wrong.  The e-tools are great!  It’s so much more than just keeping electronic points.  There are so many different aspects of it.  For example, you can type in what food you ate and it automatically pulls up the points value.   And you can even select different restaurants and see the points values.  You can track not only your daily points balance, but your activity and your body measurements.  I’m such a nerd; I had so much fun playing around on the site.  I checked out Jennifer Hudson’s WW blog and read about how good she feels after losing weight with weight watchers.  I even went to the mobile e-tools from my phone.  I’m so glad that I decided to give it a try.  It was perfect timing for my new “sick of just maintaining” attitude.  I tracked everything I ate today (even the mayonnaise on my lunch sandwich). …I worked out too.  My friend came over after work, I picked up the little sister and we all went to the gym.  Even though it was raining, my friend wanted to put on ponchos and walk outside in the rain with an umbrella.  Now y’all know I wasn’t going for that!  Once we made it to the gym, I started out walking around the track with her, but I felt like I wasn’t doing enough.  Then me and the little sis went down to the weight room.  I got on the elliptical and cranked it up a few levels.   After 20 minutes I was really sweating like boot camp class “sweat in your eyes” sweating.  Then I got on the Fitness Balland did sit ups and pushups.  Then me and the little sister finished up with some free weights.  It was fun to mix up the routine like that.  Then we went back up to the track and walked the final 3 laps of my friends 3 mile walk with her.  I feel great!  I like feeling like I’m on the right track and in control.
