Good for you! I’ve seen people have great success with Weight Watchers…and I’ve also seen the same people put the weight right back on. It doesn’t necessarily teach you to eat in a sustainable, lifelong way. I don’t like a lot of diets because they involve going cold turkey on things you love to eat & going hungry. Hunger=invitation for failure. And dieting doesn’t account for nutrition. I don’t see how anyone can live a healthy lifestyle with those WW meals and snacks, haha!

In reality people should be retraining their palates and habits…to eat smaller portions, more frequently, of nutritious, high protein foods that will keep them satisfied longer.

My husband has the same struggle at his office. I guess the only thing you can really do is keep yourself stocked with LOTS of healthy snacks, and don’t be afraid to indulge once or twice a week!

Good luck! Remember, you don’t need that massive danish…it will just make you feel gross if you eat it anyway. 🙂

I also HATE diet “plans”.  I know that I have a certain number of calories I can take in and still lose weight.  I know which foods are healthier for me, and I also no that completely restricting myself is going to make me miserable!  That being said…I have to WANT it.  🙂  Good luck on your weight loss goals.  It sounds like you know what to do.
