  3. If you use my.yahoo customized page, you can add a module to track your weight.. It lets you track your weekly weight and set a long term goal.
  4. When ordering from a menu, how do you figure points values for serving sizes.. Specifically when dealing with steaks. I know on the menu, steak sizes are weighed before cooking. How does this figure for points values?? Any help would be great.. I want to try to be as accurate as possible when calculating my points. Anyone know steak points per ounce of cooked weight..?
  5. From Weight Watchers Simply Delicious Winning Points Cookbook. Pizza Nachos 2 ounces (26) Baked Tortilla Chips 1/2 cup prepared tomato or marinara sauce 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozarella cheese 2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese Preheat the broiler. Arrange the tortilla chips in a single layer on a pizza pan or small jelly-roll pan. Drizzle with the tomato sauce and sprinkle with the oregano. Top with the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Broil until the chips just start to brown and the cheese starts to melt, about 1 minute. Makes 4 servings. 2 pts per serving. Nutritional Information: 107 calories, 3 g fat, 1 g fiber. Haven't tried it yet.. But it sounds delicious.. The recipe listing says it takes care of a pizza or nacho craving in one fell swoop. It can easily be doubled or tripled for a party.

FOR NORTHERNERS MOVING SOUTH ----------- In the South: If you run your car into a ditch, don't panic. Four men in a four-wheel drive pickup truck with a tow chain will be along shortly. Don't try to help them -- just stay out of their way. This is what they live for. Don't be surprised to find movie rentals and bait in the same store. Do not buy food at this store. Remember, "y'all" is singular, "all y'all" is plural, and "all y'all's" is plural possessive. Get used to hearing, "You ain't from 'round here, are ya?" Save all manner of bacon grease. You will be instructed later on how to use it. Don't be worried at not understanding what people are saying. They can't understand you either. The first Southern statement to creep into a transplanted Northerner's vocabulary is the adjective "big'ol" truck or big'ol" boy. Most Northerners begin their Southern-influenced dialect this way. All of them are in denial about it. The proper pronunciation you learned in school is no longer proper. Be advised that "He needed killin' " is a valid defense here. If you hear a Southerner exclaim, "Hey, y'all, watch this," you should stay out of the way. These are likely to be the last words he'll ever say. If there is the prediction of the slightest chance of even the smallest accumulation of snow, your presence is required at the local grocery store. It doesn't matter whether you need anything or not. You just have to go there. Do not be surprised to find that 10 year-olds own their own shotguns. They are proficient marksmen and their mammas taught them how to aim. In the South, we have found that the best way to grow a lush green lawn is to pour gravel on it and call it a driveway. AND REMEMBER: If you do settle in the South and bear children, don't think we will accept them as Southerners. After all, if the cat had kittens in the oven, we wouldn't call 'em biscuits.
  7. THE POWER OF PRAYER: After starting a new diet, I altered my drive to town to avoid passing my favorite bakery. I accidentally drove by the bakery this morning and there in the window was a host of my favorite goodies. I felt this was no accident, so I prayed, "Lord, it's up to you... if you want me to have any of those delicious goodies, create a parking place for me directly in front of the bakery." And sure enough, He answered my prayer. On the eighth time around the block, there it was!
  8. Our local Winn Dixie Supermarkets have these packs on sale this week at 2 for $4. Time to stock up on them..

  13. This recipe sounds similar to the one I received at my WW Meeting.. My Leader called it Taco Soup.. Taco Soup 2 pts per 1 cup serving. 1 lb lean ground beef browned with onion. 1 can Whole Kernel Corn. 1 can Ro-tel 1 can Diced Tomatoes 1 can Bush's Chili Beans. 1 can Bush's Black Beans. 1 pkg Taco Seasoning Mix. (I use McCormick's) 1 pkg Buttermilk Salad Dressing Mix. Combine all ingredients. Cook at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend. This is delicious and very filling.

  15. I just wanted to shout out and pat myself on the back. Today, I reached my 10% goal. And only after 8 weeks.. Hooray!! I know need to go and buy myself something to celebrate.. One of the best things about losing weight is finally the ability to enjoy shopping for clothes.. As a fat man, I hated shopping for clothes.. Now they are finally starting to fit my body better.. 'Nuff rambling..
