Do Not Stress About Tracking Points

The other day for dinner I had homemade beef curry with vegetables over rice. I could have spent 15 minutes adding each ingredient to my WW app to track it. Instead, I just recorded the maximum points for the day (28 in my case, less 4 for a prior meal) and was happy with that. I ate a very moderate portion, and skipped eating most of the high-point rice, so I felt like 24 points was more than generous for that meal.

Tracking points is meant to bring mindfulness to eating, and guiding us towards eating healthier foods. It should not be stressful or take away from the enjoyment of eating, otherwise, we will stop tracking.
