Fasting.

Today is a huge day! I am starting Weight Watchers and I am starting a 4 week fast from lots of things.The Book of Face, junk food, carbonated beverages, and alcohol. I don't drink much, but I won't be drinking at all. Not even a celebration drink when Alabama wins tonight. ROLL TIDE!!!
 
 
 

I'm hoping that this fast will allow to spend a lot of time in prayer strengthing my relationship with God and help me to be much more productive with my down time instead of spending hours and hours on the Book of Face. Besides, all the faces I really need to see are close to me!

That's all I've got for today. I'm pretty hungry and I little cranky... I'll have something for y'all tomorrow =)

Happy Monday, Y'all!

Roll Tide!!! I can't wait for the game tonight! I was thinking about trying Weight Watchers, you will have to let us know how it works for you. I think it's a good program because it seems like it will hold you more accountable than counting calories on your own.

It really is! I can't wait!

I did WW before, and It worked great. I stopped for the Holidays because I wasn't about to miss out on Holiday junk food! You really can eat whatever you want. You just count your points and add them up. You also get extra weekly points that make it easy to have a cheat day and still follow the plan! You should totally do it!

Good Luck with WW! I'm contemplating starting it. It's just hard as a college student, because I had to eat whatever the campus offers.. we will see though..

Best of luck with WW. I'm an Arkansas girl so I have to root for the SEC even though it is hard for me to say "Roll Tide"

Amanda said...

I love that you are fasting! You are right, it will totally help you spend more time in prayer with the Lord and will help you to behold him. Good luck, I can't wait to hear how it goes :)
Also, I did weight watchers one about 7 years ago and I really liked it!

It's a lot easier than people think. I really eat whatever I want. And with the new PointsPlus system there are tons of things that are zero points so you can eat as much as you want! You should try it!

Jen said...

Haha! Thanks! Anddd Roll Tide!!

Jen said...

So far so good! Leaving The Book of Face was hard...But 3 days in and I've already learned so much! WW is pretty easy. I still eat whatever I want... Here's to hoping I can stick with it!

I really am thinking about trying it. Are you doing it online, or are you going to meetings?

Weeeelllll, I'm actually kinda cheating! I can't bring myself to pay for weight watchers every month. So I found a website to get all my info from. I calculated my points from there. AND I found a knock off ww app for my iPhone! Haha. There are tons of great websites that give you points for eating out and break everything down for you. You should email me and I can send you the info if you're interested!
