  1. I drain the beans just because I like my soup a little bit thicker. I can't stand the taste of runny soup (i'm crazy i know)....in a nutshell, I like chili like soups and that's pretty much what you get if you drain the beans. Andrea
  2. It's 2 points for 1 cup....but it's VERY filling! Andrea
  3. Just wanted to let everyone know...I eat this all the time and I LOVE it! I dont' add the corn because I'm not a big corn fan, and instead of black beans I add Pinto Beans. But it's really good the original way too! Andrea
  4. Tammy....I think you might be overexercising....and I'm guilty of that too. Im at the gym pretty much every day of the week. However, I eat all of my Flex points and AP's each week. I just recommitted this past week, and even though it was TOM, I still lost. I think 1-2 days off per week might be a good thing. I've only been to the gym 3 times this week and still managed to loose. Try it and see what happens. If you are staying within your points, you should be fine. I've also noticed lately that if I give myself a couple of days off I tend to loose a little bit more than when I go everyday. Our bodies need rest so try it and see what happens. Let me know how things go for you!! Andrea
  5. are you doing cardio and lifting everyday? It's ok to do cardio everyday, but you want to lift every other day, unless you are doing a different body part each day. I would suggest that if you are doing an entire body lifting routine, go every other day. If you are going to the gym everyday and want to lift everyday, then split the body parts up (ie....monday do biceps and triceps, tuesday do back, wed do chest, thursday do shoulders and friday do legs). Also, did you put an inch on due to muscle? That's not a bad thing!!!!! That's actually a great thing! Hope this helps! Andrea PS...pm me if you need to, I'm a personal trainer if you need any more help.
  6. Does anybody know the points value for these? I tried looking on Dottie's site, but couldn't find anything......I'm gonna try the Godiva website, but thought I would try here too. Thanks! Andrea
  7. Thanks for all your help ladies! I'm going to stick with it....it's just frustrating to try so hard and not lose a thing. I know I don't want to put back on those 6 lbs that I have lost....at least that's better than nothing!!! Andrea
  8. Do you think that certain people are meant to weigh more than what is normal for their height, age, etc? I'm beginning to think that of myslef...I"ve been doing WW for 12 weeks and no matter how hard I try I CANNOT get below 169...I'm pretty active, I do cardio everyday and lift at least 3 times a week....I've been trying different point ranges just to see what happens....I'm supposed to be at 22 right now, but nothing is happening with that either. I would try not eating AP's and flex, but I don't want to get to maintenance and have to live off of like 22 points a day....I would starve!!!! Has anyone else experienced this before and believe they have a higher "set point" for their body? Or am I the only one out there???? Thanks guys!! Andrea
  9. Hey guys.....I need some help bad!!! I don't cook, and I have to create a snack for one of my classes, cook it, and bring it to class. That's not really the problem...the problem is....my snack can't contain more than 200 calories per serving and it has to be a good source of B12 and Zinc.....kinda crazy...this is for cellular class.....I know that both of these items are high in meat products...but I didn't know if you guys had any ideas of what I could make.....it can be hot or cold.....it would be easier if it was cold.....like shrimp or something....but I have to think of it like I was going to a party and bringing a snack. Any ideas? TIA!!! Andrea
  10. I agree with everything Jen said....I am a certified personal trainer and I think it's important to train your lower body. I only train my legs one day each week...but i take a step class and run the other days, so my legs are in very good shape...esp my calves. If nothing else, stick to lighter weights and higher reps! Hope this helps! Andrea
  11. If you didn't add the rice or bulgur....what do you think the points value would be then?
  12. I am having the same problem!!!! I need to lose about 10 to reach 10%......but they aren't budging!!! I"ve been gaining and losing the same 2 pounds for the past two months! It's so frustrating!!!! Im not sure exactly what I'm going to do about it....I hate to not eat my flex......I don't want to half to maintain at a low points value....and I always eat my AP's.....maybe I should try not eating some of the flex..... andrea
  13. Should you WI before or after a cardio workout? The reason I'm asking is that I have two times I can WI....before or after my step class on saturdays.....you would think that you would weigh less after working out b/c you have been sweating....but at the same time, you could argue that you would weigh a little more b/c you've been working out and your muscles are warm, therefore they are retaining a little water from the lactic acid...what do you guys think? Thanks!! Andrea
  14. I'm a personal trainer, but I train through the YMCA...which charges $40 a session (1 hour). But it's different at each gym......I'm also studying to be a dietitian (nutritionist).....if you need help, let me know...i'd be happy to help!! (i have a BS in nutrition and I'm studying for my master's right now) Andrea
  15. Hey buddies, I have a question....I attend WI and meetings on Saturdays. However, I think that this next Saturday I will be out of town. I don't know if I can make it to a meeting earlier in the week, and if I do, that will put me off schedule and I wont be able to make it back to my Saturday meetings. If I skip the WI this next saturday and go the following saturday, do I have to pay the start-up fee again? What are the rules for this stuff? Thanks. Andrea
