Old Skool – Retro Post from March 31, 2009

Fact:  People don’t care what you ate or plan on eating today

I read this once  –  OK so maybe it’s not a fact per se. just the general consensus.

Whatever.  I need to write it down.  I need to figure out the points values based on Weight Watchers here in the Netherlands.  Today is over.  I’ve cried over my frustration, my half-assedness, my tiny little pound lost in the last two weeks.  I want to give up. Yet I don’t.  So, it’s nearly 11pm and here I’ve prepared my food for tomorrow:

B – egg and laughing cow sandwiches – 6 points
2 HB egg whites
2 triangles Laughing Cow
4 slices of bread
