Other than work that is!
During some of my spare time, I’ve been learning a new skill – counting WeightWatcher propoints. Those that care about me, know how much of a challenge this is for me – not that I can’t count, but for personal reasons I don’t like to count anything related to food.
In for a penny, in for a pound I thought. So over the last six weeks I’ve given it my all, and it;s been a success – I’ve lost 18lbs. That’s the biggest weight loss I’ve had since I started dieting four years ago.
Now, propoints values are closely linked to the calorific value of food. The dieter gets given a daily points allowance (based on height and body weight) and an additional weekly allowance. Additional points, called activity points, can be “earned” by exercising. Daily points have a lower calorific value than activity points creating a calorie deficit if you decide to use your activity points.
