Weight Watchers Wednesday

Okay everyone, time to get in line and on the scale! Uh, you go first. Okay, fine, I have lost 1 pound this week. ONE pound. But I’m not discouraged because I KNOW Weight Watchers works. It was only the first week and it takes a while to remember what you can eat, to get the good food IN the house and the bad food OUT of the house, to not ruin your point count for the day with one really yummy meal that your husband cooked for you.

Here’s what I had today:

Breakfast: 1/4 Southwestern Eggbeaters (1 pt) , 1/2 cup of Black-eyed peas (2 pt). Yes, black-eyed peas for breakfast. Sigh.

Lunch: 2 pieces of double fiber bread (2 pt), Boca veggie burger with mustard (2 pt). 1 cup light soup (2 pt)

Dinner: Hamburger on 2 pieces of fiber bread( 7)  and 1 cup of  Progresso high  fiber soup (3 pt).

Misc: 1 cup of coffee with splenda, non-dairy creamer( 1), Coke Zero, Chocolate chewy thing. (4)

Grand Total – 24.  Not good. Even though it looks like I came in under my 29 point goal, I probably forgot something. Or I’ll eat again before bed. I started off strong but toward the end of the day, a girl gets hungry! And while that 7 point burger was not a great idea, it was by far the best thing I ate all day.

I know my meals are not very interesting but I have some low point, Weight Watchers recipes I’ll be sharing in the future. I’ve got to find something to eat besides FIBER. Here’s my tip for the week, courtesy of Tania-the-Mad. If your diet consists of a lot of beans, especially CANNED beans, rinse them off first in a strainer. It cuts down on the…well, you know.

My friend J has lost 6.5 pounds this week doing Weight Watchers core, and my sister has lost 4.5 on this diet.  So, how goes it with the rest of you?

Stay encouraged and eat smart!

  1. Ditto Tina! Winter is the time for oranges and clementines! Also fresh vegetables and salsa and a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese are a great 1 pt. hunger-curber.

    I don’t like the new points system yet…

    Congratulations on the 1 lb loss!!!! Remember, with LESS to lose, it’s a fight for every lb!

  2. Eating right and exercising TOGETHER will shed the weight much faster. P90X is too hard for many but any type of exercise that changes things up will work. It looks to me like you need some more protein…at least early on during your ‘fat shredder’ stage. Here’s a good sample for the day…

    Breakfast – Protein shake, cinnamon swirl oatmeal

    Snack – Protein bar

    Lunch – Lemon-pepper grilled chicken, broccoli, and green beans

    Snack – Almonds

    Dinner – Grilled chicken (with many spices) mixed with green peppers and mushrooms

    Snack – Strawberry frozen yogurt and an orange

    …pretty much eat similar meals every day of the week. Lost 9 lbs last week.

  3. Switching my weigh-in day to Wednesdays to coincide with you… THAT’S accountability. Starting tomorrow and counting on your WWW!
