You Know You Are on Weight Watchers When....

  • You accidentally swallow toothpaste and wonder how many pts it had in it.
  • You stand in the aisles at the grocery store with your pts Calculator calculating the pts before you buy.
  • Everyone at your lunch table is asking you to calculate the pts in “their” lunch
  • You know your dogs needs WW too!
  • You calculate the pts in cough syrup.
  • Your child says there are too many pts in something s/he doesn't want to eat!
  • You don't want to share ANY of your food with anyone because you've measured it and know exactly how many pts are in it.
  • You know where every public restroom is wherever you go – can you say water consumption?
  • You weigh yourself before and after visiting the loo just to see how much of a difference it makes.
  • You turn into a 12 year old at your meeting when its time to give out Bravo Stickers
  • You ask your WW leader to bring in a curtain so you can weigh-in naked.
  • You convince the grocery store owner to organize the food aisles according to pts values
  • You hang your 5 lb book markers from your car antenna. (remember those?)
  • You calculate AP’s for Sex!
  • People at work know when your WI day is because you have the same outfit on that day EVERY WEEK
  • You call your family to the dinner table and instead of "what's for dinner?" they ask "how many pts are we having for dinner?"
  • You take a bite and then spit it out because you realize it wasn't worth the points!
  • You mark all the food boxes in the house with pts values with a big black marker – you also add your name and a note: TOUCH IT AND DIE!
  • You bring your Molly McButter to restaurants so you don’t waste pts on butter.
  • "On The Side" become the 3 most uttered words in your vocabulary
  • You want to drive to Ben & Jerry's individual houses and drown them in a vat of Chunky Monkey
  • The thought of having a bran muffin for breakfast gets you so excited you can't fall asleep.
  • You dance a little jig in front of the frozen foods case in the grocery store because you finally found Skinny Cows! (and you count the activity pts for the jig!)
  • You skimp on the makeup on WI day, just in case it weighs too much
and finally...
  • The jeans you would have never dared to put in the dryer for fear that they would not make it back over your hips are in there right now, as you are hoping they shrink enough so they don’t fall off!
