I've been battling an awful head cold with an annoying cough for the past week and half, which has caused me to consume two bags of cough drops. What does this have to do with me shrinking or should I say not shrinking? Well this week my weigh in looked like this...
WEEK 3 / -0 / -4
I couldn't figure out what was going on. I stuck to my points (although I did use every single one) and even got in a couple workouts while I was coughing up a lung. Why did my scale let me down? As I started thinking about the week and what may have happened the cough drops kept coming to mind. Do cough drops contain points? Sure enough, when I checked the ingredients what did my eyes read, but sugar! If they had sugar then they most definitely had calories, and where there are calories there are Weight Watcher points. So even though I thought I had stuck with my points I was probably over by many thanks to the cough drops.
So what have I learned this week...when coughing, buy sugar free cough drops only!
