  1. I'm not sure which one he was doing. He just told me that he had done it earlier this year and that that was how many points he had been given. That still seems like an awful lot to me.
  2. I have a friend that weights 300 lbs. and he said that he tried to do WW PP earlier this year and that he couldn't lose weight because. He said that he was given 63 points to use. Would this be correct? That seems like an awful lot of points to me. He didn't lose any weight and had trouble eating that many points. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Thanks! Dawn
  3. Hi ministerwife!

    I'm Lily from Sifi board do you remmember? I'm also a ministers wife and I was wondering how many kids do you have? I have 3 and I'm pregnant again! OMG, I think I will not be able to help a lot in the church anymore! THanks!

  4. Lynn I drink 32 oz of water with every meal usually. I've always done this and it usually helps me with the bathroom issue, but lately it hasn't. I am eating veggies and fiber. The thing that has changed the most about my eating habits is that I don't snack on high processed foods. I haven't always suffered with this issue, but for the last several weeks I have. Thanks!
  5. Well I can't figure out how to edit this post, I wanted to add the last pic again since it is so small.
  6. Well I've been doing Simply Filling for a week now. I do not attend meetings I just do it at home. My original weight loss goal was 150, but if I ever get there I might try for 140. A little bit about myself, I'm a SAH, homeschooling mom to 4. I'm also a preachers wife. You can go the the BCB showoff page and see my progress so far. The title is 51 lbs down, but it is now more like 70 lbs down. I was down this morning to 158, but I know I could be down more if I wasn't having bathroom issues. So therefore I'm asking you if there is anything you would recommend for this issue. I go through times like this, where everything doesn't move as good as I'd like. Anyway if you have any suggestions I'd love them. I've been getting my oil in, but it hasn't seemed to be helping in this area. Dawn
  7. I started Simply Filling last Monday so today starts my second week. I did use most of my 35 points. I'm still trying to figure all of this out and make better choices as far as my food. My goal this week is to not use as many of my points, but my question is do my 35 points start over this week? You get 35 points a week right? Thanks, Dawn
  8. My point is that the girl said she processed it a bit to make it more like the oat bran (filling food) because it saved her money. I just don't understand what makes it a non filling food now. Does it change the way that your body processes it? Is it harder to digest if you blend the oatmeal a little finer? To me the oat bran looks like oatmeal that has been ground a little finer. I'm not trying to start a debate, I'm just trying to understand what makes it different. I'm just trying to learn, but I still hold to not understanding what makes it different. Maybe the science of breaking down the food? I understand that flour is not a filling food, but just because you mix the oats finer does that really qualify as flour? Wouldn't major companies add something to it to make it oat flour? Thanks, Dawn
  9. Ok, that is what I thought, but then I found this recipe on another WW weight loss board and I was a little confused about what one of the girls was telling this lady. Here is the recipe and then I will comment on what the lady said. Pancakes ¾ cup *Oat Bran ½ cup **Cream of Wheat 1 Tbls Splenda 2 tsp baking powder ¼ tsp salt 1 beaten egg 1 cup skim milk 1 Tbls applesauce 1 Tbls Canola oil 1. In a medium mixing bowl stir together the Oat Bran, Cream of Wheat, Splenda, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture; set aside 2. In another medium mixing bowl combine the egg, milk, applesauce and canola oil. Add egg mixture all at once to the dry mixture. Stir until well combined. 3. Let batter sit for 10 to 15 minutes, this allows the liquid to be absorbed and the mixture to thicken. 4. For standard-size pancakes, pour about ¼ cup batter onto a hot griddle (sprayed with non-stick cooking spray). For dollar-size pancakes, use 1 Tbls batter. *Grind regular oatmeal into flour (which seems to be the same as Oat Bran) using a mini food processor or blender – it is much, much cheaper! As I understand it this girl is not adding anything to the oatmeal to make it something different, she is simply making it finer like Oat Bran so that she can use it in the recipe. She is still using the Oatmeal nothing more. But this lady told her that it wouldn't be SiFi if she did that. Here is the ladies quote "Reminder: Ground oatmeal is not a Core food. The Filling Foods list is the same as the Core list, minus a few items, such as oils. Ground oatmeal is a flour, so if you want to go "by the book," use the oat bran, not the ground oats." Why does it make it different if you put it in a blender to make it finer change what it really is? I'm sorry but that is CRAZY! It is still just oatmeal since she did not add something to it. What are your thoughts?
  10. Is regular oatmeal a simply filling food? Not the instant stuff, but the regular quick oats. It is a hot cereal, so I assumed it was, so if not I really need to know. Dawn
  11. Ok, I have yet another question. I only use deer meat for my ground meat. My question is how much can I eat of it. I know it is on the good list, but is their a limit other than until you are satisfied? If I remember correctly ground beef is limited to once a day, or I think that is what I've read from looking around. Is ground venison limited to once a day? It has very little fat in it if any. It produces no grease when cooked. I know that some processors add ground beef to it, but if they have added any to this then it would be a minimal amount. Thanks in advance, Dawn
  12. Can you make your own taco seasoning mix? I really want to make a taco salad, but I'm not sure the taco mix packet I have is Simply Filling. Have you made your own? Dawn
  13. I'm so sorry I'm asking so many questions, but I want to make sure I'm doing the right thing. Am I understanding right that I can eat anything off of the simply filling list to my satisfaction, but if I chose to eat something that is not on the list I just use my 35 points to eat it? Why I am wondering this is I had made some bean burritos last week and froze them. I know the refried beans were FF, and the tortillas are 1 pt. apiece. So if I eat two of them I would only count the 2 pt. for the tortillas right? I did not put cheese in them so I don't have to worry with that. Thanks! Dawn
