Counting points and grams

First, I joined Weight Watchers and started counting Weight Watcher points. I have counted Weight Watcher points for a decade now, and I am very good at doing it.

Then, my doctor informed me that I am pre-diabetic and sent me to see a dietician. She told me to count grams of carbohydrates. Now I do a fairly good job of figuring out how to combine the right amount of Weight Watcher points and grams of carbohydrates into my diet.

However, now my dietician has suggested that I may not be eating enough protein and instructed me to count grams of protein.

I started adding up those grams one day recently and quickly became so discouraged that I opened a box of Girl Scout cookies stashed away in the cupboard and ate most of them.

Weight Watcher points and grams of carbohydrates and grams of protein! This is too complicated. This is not easy to do. Why do I have to do it?

Of course, it would be easier to just eat whatever I want to eat. However, I want to be healthy, and I can do this. I will do it. I don’t have to follow these guidelines every day or every meal, but I will follow them most of the time so that I will be healthier.
