  1. I would be interested in hearing others' replies I like to buy fresh chicken breasts at 1.99/lb. I also picked up a jar of fresh salsa for about 3-4.00, and a large tub of Sabra Classic Hummus. The 18 ct eggs are usually cheaper there than Wal-Mart. Rotisserie Chicken for 5.00 makes a good source of protein for a meal, lunches, etc. Now with the PointsPlus program, you can do really well with fresh fruit there. They had pineapples for 2.00.
  2. Hi Deborah from another Deborah I rejoined on 6/19, the day after you, and also for the zilliointh time! I actually stopped counting it was so depressing. I am a lifetime member and gained back my 55 pounds almost 3 times over! I'm glad you posted this thread. I really appreciated everyone's coments about starting over. 8.8 pounds is AWESOME!!! We can do this!!
  3. I think WW calls them "guidelines" because WW is not a "diet". It's a lifestyle change. Rather than view them as suggestions, I like this definition: "A detailed plan or explanation to guide you in setting standards or determining a course of action" (Dictionary.com) It is also interesting to know that guidelines could also be defined as "A rope or cord that serves to guide one's steps, esp. over rocky terrain, through underground passages, etc." (Dictionary.com) That could be neat way to look at it from the aspect of a WW journey. It's always a choice to follow the guidelines, just like it's a choice to eat within your points. The guidelines are a part of the WW program. If I want the program to work for me, I will follow the guidelines. Also, the BCB philosophy of being OP 24/7 would include always following the guidelines.
  4. This is the recipe I usually make: Black Bean Salsa -3 cans black beans, drained and rinsed -1 tsp chili powder -1 tsp cumin -1/2 bunch chopped cilantro -2 cloves minced garlic -1/2 tsp soy sauce -1 cup picante sauce (medium recommended) -1 chopped red pepper -1/2 chopped onion -1 can of white or shoepeg corn add right before serving Mix everything together and serve. Tastes better after it sits in the fridge for a while I don't have the points figured exactly, but I'm guestimating its about 1 point for 1/2 cup, or 2 points a cup. eta: Joanne, that wrap sounds wonderful!
  5. When I'm craving buttered popcorn, or if I just need to fit my oil requirement in,I drizzle a couple of teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil over my lite popcorn. It adds a little spice to the flavor, as well. It satisfies a craving and meets the healty oil requirement at the same time.
  6. W:)W! Jenn, thank you for posting this. You are SUCH an inspiration! You look great!
  7. Thanks I used ground chuck - 85 % and read somewhere that rinsing/draining can reduce up to 50 % of the fat content, so I counted it as lean as well.
  8. Does anyone have the points value for ground beef after it has been cooked, and rinsed and drained? I seem to remember seeing it on the bcb forums somewhere before, but I can't find it. Thanks! :bcbsalute

    Need recipe please!

    Found this recipe on BCB: (not sure if this is the one you were looking for...) WW Snicker Bar
  10. I keep hearing about some slim fast optima program. Looks like they have a "new" line of products: http://www.slim-fast.com/products/product-category.asp?category_id=670
  11. Thanks for the idea on subbing for the breadcrumbs, judy. I would just add some italian seasoning, then. This recipe is one we've had in our family for quite a while. I made it for company when I first got married, and it everybody was really impressed. It's not originally a "WW" recipe, but I think its definitely WW friendly- plus, you've gotta love easy crowd pleaser recipes
  12. Stuffed Mushrooms Makes 6 servings, 1 point per serving 1/2 pound whole large mushrooms 6 tablespoons grated parmesan or romano cheese, divided 4 tablepoons italian-seasoned bread crumbs garlic salt and pepper to taste 1 tablespoon chopped parsley Separate caps from stems; wash and leave moist. Combine 3 Tablespoons cheese w/ crumbs and seasonings; roll caps in mixture. Arrange in single layer, cups up, on shallow non-stick baking tray sprayed with cooking spray. Pat stems dry and chop; add parsley and remaining cheese. Spoon mixture into cups. Bake uncovered in pre-heated 475 degree oven until browned, about 8-10 minutes.
  13. Since you're already pretty active I would recommend starting with the 3 mile walk. Its 45 minutes long, so that would be something to consider. ALSO- Have you looked into her walkblaster?
  14. What I've been getting for myself and DH are the Oscar Meyer Deli Style packs. They run about 1.80 at wal-mart for a 6-oz package that has about 3 servings in it. I get the Thin Oven Roasted Turkey Breast and the Thin Honey Ham. Both are really tasty and 1 point per serving. They also have other varieties such as brown sugar ham, chicken, and smoked turkey breast.
