Weight Watchers Wednesday

I'm back for Weight Watchers Wednesday!

Here's my progress so far:

Week 4: Lost 1.6 lbs
Total lost since 12/26: 10 lbs

So, when I plugged in my weight to my Weight Watchers app on Sunday morning after weighing it, it had a warning pop up saying I'm losing weight to fast. "If you lose an average of 2 lbs a week over a 4 week period, it can cause health problems like anemia, heart irregularities, and loss of muscle mass."

HMPH - So, what do I do? I feel like I'm eating enough. In fact, this week, I felt like I ate too much. I usually eat all of my points every day, sometimes going over, but have never used all of the extra points Weight Watchers gives me for the week. Maybe I need to be using those?

Anyone else have this problem??

And thanks to Top 2 Tuesday yesterday, I made some delicious cupcakes last night...

Soda Cake Cupcakes

All you do is take one box of cake mix, one diet soda and 2 egg whites and mix together and bake according to the directions on the box, omitting the eggs and oil.

Add Cool Whip free to the cupcakes for the "icing" and you have a pretty healthy sweet treat!

For all you ladies doing weight watchers, guess what?! Only 2-3 points per cupcake, depending on how much Cool Whip you use :-P

Yay for a great loss!! You're doing so amazing.

As for losing too fast... here is what I have think and what I have heard/read/etc. In most cases, the benefits of losing weight outweigh the risks of losing too fast. You know? I think that as long as you are losing weight the RIGHT way then you are perfectly fine.

I don't think it matters that you're not using your weekly points as long as your daily ones are being met. A ww leader told my mom that you don't have to eat your weekly points.

So basically, I think you should keep doing what you're doing. 1-2 lbs lost a week is healthy. You're just on the upper end of that scale. I say YAY Savanah!!! Keep it up!!!

You are doing so good and those cupcakes look light and healthy!
Keep up the good work!

I've heard of that version of cupcake but never tried it. I'll have to remember this next time I've got cupcakes on the brain! ☺

Emily said...

Great job girl!!! Keep it up. Those cupcakes are calling my name!

Amanda said...

Glad to see you tried to cupcakes! You should try them with orange soda sometime and have the cool whip in the center. It's like a creamsicle!

Not to be a debi downer, but the only "healthy" thing about the cupcakes is the eggwhite. That's what I didn't like about WW- all the unhealthy sugar substitutes... Try stevia or xylitol. The diet 7-up alone is soooo unhealthy, and if you read the labels on the cake box and cool whip, I can't think of one healthy or unprocessed ingredient. All processed foods are so unhealthy for you. Sadly. Sorry

For those watching calories, but in need of a sweet treat once in a while (not every day), this is a great option. Even if it has no nutritional value whatsoever. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Found it on Pinterest :)

Blog is a funny word : ) said...

This isnt right, I put the nutritional info into my weight watchers calculator the cake alone with the soda is 5 pts a serving and another point for the cool whip, which is just one point off from being a krispy kreme doughnut.

To the above poster, the cake mix is 5 points, the soda is none, and the egg whites are none. If you put it in the recipe calculator, you have to put in the amount of servings which brings the points to zero.
The cool whip adds the points.

Tami Alexander said...

but isn't it 5pts per serving? so the whole mix is alot of points then you have to divide by the # of servings you are having. so it is differently not 0. I was mislead into thinking it was way less points then it is so now no more cake treats for me as often :(
