Wait, I said this was going to be a Weight Watchers blog, so let me talk about my food situation. I should start with

Day Five: I’ve been doing pretty well, I think. I’ve used about half of my Flex Points, but it’s Mardi Gras, for pete’s sake. (I’m using that as an excuse, I think. I only went to the French Quarter on Saturday, and we only watched two floats of a parade. And I’m not going to any tonight because I have to work tomorrow at 7:30 a.m.)

So I’ve eaten a lot of oatmeal. Not real oatmeal, but Quaker Oat Square cereal (yum as a snack and a cereal) and the new baked Quaker Oatmeal Squares, which are somewhat like crack to me, even though they make my jaw hurt. Also grapes and Subway. Now I see how Jared did it! I still need to come up with some more high-volume, low-point foods. I know that a cup of grapes will fill me up more than two Hershey’s kisses, but it’s hard, and that’s what is going to take some getting used to.

But the best part is, George and I are going to be so broke after buying this house, that I won’t be able to afford to eat anyway, so the pounds should just melt away…
