I think I really like the new points! FREE FRUIT! I am now going to make more citrus salad. I cut up grapefruit/oranges & put in a big bowl.
In the morning I portion out some into a tupperware to bring to work and add one apple a day to it. The juice keeps the apples from turning brown and they are very filling.
Love a zero point breakfast!

Sara - I try to eat veggies for snacks to keep the points low - carrots & hummus, celery sticks, etc. air popped popcorn is a good one-filling & pretty low in points. Soup too - do you have the recipe for 0 point soup? It's basically broth w/ veggies. Also I get Nature Valley trail mix bars - yummy & only 2 points (under the old system). I have those a lot for breakfast or a snack

Congrats you losers!! LOL
Unfortunately, I am not in the loser club this week. Or even in the staying the same club. Had a bad week & the scale showed it. Time to regroup & get back to it.
I think this is the only time I enjoy being a looser.....
I hope it wasn't too bad of week for you......
I tell you I was happy to notice that my tummy wasn't as big as it was last week.
I've been taking the steps at work (up to 6 flights depending on the class) and walking the hill to get to the school is insane work...
I've taken to eating apples everyday..... very filling and not bad in the sugar if I choose them right

I made a big salad and 0 point soup on Saturday for the week. I'm eating lunch at a Thai place today so need to research to see what my best options are there.
Good job everyone for losing and staying with the diet!

I didn't bother to weigh in this week because I knew it wouldn't be good. I know I have to get back on track, and tried my best to do so starting this weekend.
At least with no football for two weeks I have less reason to drink...
As long as we don't double our efforts come Super Bowl to make up for it.
My big thing is that I need to get back into an exercise routine. The cold weather kills me because its hard to find the motivation to go out into the cold & go for a walk.
But on the bright side, a pilates studio opened in my neighborhood and I'm planning to go investigate. Crossing my fingers that their rates are reasonable enough for me to start taking some classes again.

If I still used splenda, it wouldn't be a big deal, but I think splenda is gross, and I use sugar, and well, unfortunately, sugar is not 0 points.
I have truvia in the cabinet, but once you are used to sugar, the alternatives don't really taste that good.
Hopefully next week will be better!!!

I feel a little lighter but I did some ab work last night. I'm also going to an hour of yoga right before weigh in so I'm sure that will help my weight go down quite a bit.
I know that I have followed the program to a T this week and was once again astounded at the amount of food I was eating before I started. No wonder I'm a lard ass!!!

Ate out 2 times this week and made crappy choices when I did. My orginal goal was 20lbs by Feb1st GOAL MET!
New goal = 15lbs by June 1st.
thats about 16 weeks from now so @ 1 lb per week I can hit my goal. As long as everyweek is a loss I will win!

I lost 1.4 this week. I am going to step up my activity and try to get to 2lbs next week.
You go, girl.
I scaled my points back a bit on Saturday after my weigh-in from Hell. We'll see how it goes... think I'm going to have to behave on Friday night.
