I wish I’d taken a picture of the frozen yogurt treat I got yesterday.  I knew going in that I wasn’t going to get a full bowl of the frozen yogurt but I was curios how much I’d end up with while trying to get  a sensible portion.

Keep in mind when you check out the nutritional facts that a serving is an ounce …. really an ounce; so for that 30 – 45 calorie range they advertise you get maybe a couple of tablespoons of frozen yogurt …. lol; I’d love to see someone actually do that.  I ended up with what I estimated looked like 1/2 cup but weighed in at 6.9 ounces.  I opted not to get any toppings … I was in it for the froyo!

If I hadn’t read the nutritional facts and I’d fixed my bowl anywhere close to what looked like a “serving” to me I can assume I’d have at least 12 ounces; and that would have been only filling the smaller of the bowls about half way.

I have to admit it was delicious!  Absolutely delicious and on this particular day worth the 5 Weight Watchers Points Plus I estimated it to be (I kept getting different results when I calculated; it may really be as much as 7 but I’m sticking with my 5 estimate). Maybe low in fat but ridiculously high in carbs now mater what kind you get.

I couldn’t even begin to guess how many ounces in this pic from their website …. but as long as you keep a portion size in mind or at least aren’t trying to kid yourself about it being truly healthy go for it!  You only live once!

So, I did it, I decided to actually diet.  That ugly word that I am sure I said over and over I didn’t need and wouldn’t do.  I’d been losing weight.  Actually I’d gone from the 222 pounds I started at in August  to about 208 pounds in February just by exercising and changing a few habits but I felt like I was in a rut so I decided to join Weight Watchers.

February 26th I went to my first meeting.  Weighing in at 207.6 pounds.  I’ve lost every week so far; in fact it tells me online that I am losing a little too fast.  I weighed in at 195 this past Tuesday!  So happy to get under that 200 mark;  I accomplished that on March 26th just a month after joining.

This weeks meeting was about monitoring activity; hence my pedometer experiment.  Today I did even worse with the pedometer ~ it’s still on the bathroom counter where I placed it last night.  Perhaps tomorrow I will try again to see how many steps I take in a day.
