  1. Maybe this is silly but I'm confused. I'm trying to enter into calc 1 oz of rum...and of course I know there's calories in it... but the info I'm finding is saying no carbs, no protein, no fat, no fiber.... so how do I calculate it?
  2. There are many places online that you can use to calculate points and if you're mathmatically inclined there are places to that list the formula of how a point is calculated so you can just use a regular calculator to figure it out.
  3. was going to post my own review but saw it was on here already. I'm just finding this product now. It's great less points, lots of fiber. Has the calcium of an 8 oz glass of milk which is great for me since I don't get my dairy in very often = ( Not like whole wheat at all. I haven't tried but I'm pretty sure my family wouldn't notice. It looks like it comes in elbows, rotini, penne, spaghetti and thin spaghetti. Tonight I ate it with some shrimp, garlic, 1tsp olive oil and another new find. It was near the olive oil. It was a parmesean and spice blend meant to put in oil and then dip your bread in. It has some parmesan, basil and other spices, only 5 calories per 1 tsp. I only needed the 1 tsp for one serving of pasta.
  4. These sound yummy. I've never seen them before. I'll have to take a closer look down the chip aisle.
  5. Congratulations! That's so awesome. It's exciting to know that you'll be helping others have the same success you have had. Kristen
  6. I agree with Stephanie, I have a feeling that will actually be quite high in fat 2.5 to about 4 grams of fat per 10-12 oz I would be that a 20oz would still have at least 3 pts maybe even 5. Kristen
  7. I would say because whatever their formula is when it tells you 2 pts for 30 minutes it's actually 2 and a fraction so they say 2, but when you do 60 minutes it rounds to 5. Do you know how many calories you burned? I just heard from someone on the boards that you get aprox. 1 AP for every 100 calories burned. Hope that helps. If anything... I personally tend to go towards the lower amount just so you know you're safe. Kristen
  8. Hi Mystar, Do you know about activity points? Are you eating those as well? Have you been eating your minimum points daily? Are you using/not using all your flex points? These are things that can make a difference for some people points wise. Hang in there if you are following the program you will lose. Kristen
  9. Wow, What a great thread. It helps to see different people's moments and how I'm sure to a degree we can all relate. I knew I was heavy but didn't really feel that it hindered me in doing anything. I was at my daughter's dance class and another mom was telling me how there was an adult tap class and how I should join. I remember thinking to myself I would but I'm too heavy... at that moment I realized that my weight was holding me back from doing something that I really wanted to do. (I weighed 245 then) I joined the dance class anyway in Sept. and had gotten down to 210 by June for our recital. This year I was 180 for recital. I'm taking dance again for the third year and I'm determined to be at my goal weight for next June's recital.
  10. I've seen people post about TJ's and some great things they get there. I don't have one near me but there's one near my in-laws. Next time we go I'm going to go and check one out. What is everyone's favs to get there? Kristen I've seen the veggie corn dogs and the lime chicken burgers those both sound great.
  11. Starbrite- WW has bagels. In my grocery store they are with all the other bagels. They are 2 pts. per bagel. I think they are really good! I eat them with the chive and onion light cream cheese or make a sandwich by toasting the bagel and spraying it with spray butter. I cook 1/4 of southwestern egg beaters and put a piece of 2% cheese (1PT) on it's soooo good. I feel like I'm cheating. Kristen
  12. Thank you for that info = ) It was good... but I don't know about 2 pts good = )
  13. I got a cup of coffee from the gas station this morning and put in two of the little "cups" or irish cream creamer. I looked it up in the info I had and it said 2T. of non-dairy creamer is 1 pt. I assumed the stuff I used was non-dairy since it wasn't being refrigerated... and that one of those is at or less than 1 T. so I counted that as 1 pt. Does that sound accurate or am I off? Thanks for any help you can give me = ) Kristen
  14. I always have OP items such as lean cusines, 100 calorie packs of different things, cut veggies, usually always salty and sweet type snacks availabe as well as chicken breasts, 0 or 1 point marinades for the chicken etc. I plan my meals for the week for dinners anyway and then depending what I feel like that day I'll make it. Usually in the morning I try to plan out what I want for dinner first because that is usually my biggest point meal of the day. Then go from there... and look at the choices I have for lunch.... then snacks generally and then breakfast. Usually at the beginning of any given day I'll know what I craving and my mind doesn't change too much throughout the day. I'd say if anything know youself and plan for what you need. I need a big dinner, I need lots of snacks, including some after dinner snacks... I don't really like breakfast, but know I have to eat it so I use only a few points then. It's really learning your eating patterns when you usually crave food, when if at all do you go OP? and plan ahead. If I didn't leave some points for an after dinner snack that's setting myself up for failure because I know I'm going to want to eat. Kristen sorry for my longwinded answer = )
  15. I know this is a little late for the original poster, but I thought maybe someone could benefit from this. I found it on aimeesadventures.com an awesome site with lots of great recipes. I haven't tried this one, but I've liked almost everything I've tried from her site. The optional chocolate zucchini bread looks yummy. Kristen Zucchini Bread 1 1/4 Cups Shredded Zucchini, packed 3/4 Cup Splenda Granular 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar 1/3 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce 1 Egg 1 teaspoon Vanilla 1 Cup Flour 1 teaspoon Baking Powder 1 teaspoon Baking Soda 1/2 teaspoon Salt 1 teaspoon Cinnamon 1 1/2 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder (optional for chocolate zucchini bread) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the shredded zucchini into a piece of cheesecloth and squeeze out any liquid (this is very important). Set aside. In a small mixing bowl, combine the Splenda, brown sugar, applesauce, egg and vanilla. In a medium-mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Pour the web ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Fold in the zucchini. Spray a 1-quart loaf pan (I used glass) with butter flavored cooking spray. Pour the mixture into the loaf pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
