There has been many posts this week on Weight Watchers. Tonight is my first meeting. My question though is this…I’m not a huge fan of cooking…my husband normally cooks. He’s supposed to be joining me tonight but I never know with his job if he’ll be home at a decent time, so it might be just me tonight.
For someone like me who doesn’t really like to cook during the week, will I have trouble sticking to the plan? How many of you cook your meals for the week on Sunday? Perhaps that is the route I need to take?!?!?

I don’t cook my meals on Sunday, but I do plan what I am going to eat for the week. If you can cook everything on a Sunday I think that would be fine. I think that you might have trouble sticking to the plan if you don’t plan your meals ahead of time. The reason I say that is because if you don’t plan accordingly for your points, then you will be more likely to go over. WW is definitely a program that you can succeed on! I lost 24 pounds last year with basically no working out in about 5 months, and my loss could have been much greater if i had really done the whole Activity points thing. I’m back on it now, hoping to get in wedding shape. you can do it!

I order take out/eat out with Fiance ALL the time and I did that the first time I did WW (and lost 20 lbs).
I cooked “slightly” more than I had previously after joining, but mainly I made smarter decisions about take out/restaurant meals as well as portion sizes.

I don’t cook on Sundays for the whole week – I cook a bigger ‘Sunday’ meal which often leaves me with a protein leftover for work.
However, I do plan like another poster down to what groceries I need to buy and on the menu for the week, I even try to put the points value for the recipe I have. If you’d like the template I use for menu planning (an excel sheet), just PM me. It’s super easy, convenient, and saves me money.
If you don’t like to cook, I’d recommend frozen dinners with a side salad. Or learn to cook a few staples that you can alter in to a few other recipes (Rachel Ray style).
