  1. Lissie-- You look fantastic! What an inspiration! I'm looking forward to the day when my chest is bigger than my waist too...lol!
  2. You are my hero girlfriend! You look amazing! You and Bryan seem so happy. He's a lucky guy, and you are both blessed to have two wonderful (and gorgeous) kids! You inspire me so much...I'm gonna catch up with ya one of these days.
  3. Hey Danny! Saw a fellow Okie and thought I'd say hello and welcome. I live in SW OKC. Where are you from?
  4. I'm not really a newbie but I have a question for the site administrators. Would it be possible to add a buddy group for the night owls among us who work nights and sleep days? I know I'm not the only one because there are several logged in when I am on the site in the middle of the night. We have unique challenges because of our schedules and eating patterns, so it would be nice to share tips and find other night owl BCBs! Jennifer
  5. Love this list! Thanks so much! About the tomatoes, I've heard that it's better to eat them after they have been crushed or blended in some way, such as salsa or tomato sauce. Supposedly it makes the lycopene more "available." Also, I'm not familiar with quinoa. What is that? Jennifer
  6. Luanne, Thanks for the advice. I did NOT take a quiz on the eTools, so I'm guessing that the lower target is a default. I will try that now, and thanks once again! Jen
  7. I'm not totally new to WW but some things have changed in the last year since I was active. Rejoined yesterday, and calculated my POINTS target at 36 according to the Week 1 booklet they handed out. That's 2 points for female, 2 points for being 39, 29 points for my weight, 1 point for my height, and 2 points for my daily level of activity. However, I purchased the monthly pass when I registered which comes with free eTools membership. eTools calculates my POINTS target as 31, which is more in line with my old POINTS target from a year ago. Frankly, I'm a little freaked out about being allowed 36 points since this seems like a lot to me. Can anyone explain this discrepancy? And which target should I actually shoot for? Thanks in advance to anyone who can offer some feedback on this! Jen HW: 320.8 SW: 295.2 CW: 295.2 GW: 150 10% GOAL: 265
  8. These were mentioned at my WW meeting by our leader. Now I will definitely have to try them...they sound yummy! Jen 320.8/314.2/150
  9. I really like this a lot. I don't mind the Splenda; I don't like it sugary sweet. I use it for when I have to have a Cosmopolitan or a Sea Breeze, and it keeps the points low. It's also good to have on hand if you feel a UTI coming on! Jen 320.8/314.2/150
  10. Think you can't have anything breaded or fried? Check these out! They are just 3 points per fillet, and when you bake them per the instructions, they taste just like fried battered fish! So good!! Jen 320.8/314.4/150
  11. I saw this recipe in our Sunday paper, and I tried it last night. It's really good! 1/2 c. Kraft 100% Grated Parmesan cheese 1 envelope Good Seasons Italian salad dressing mix 1/2 tsp. garlic powder 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 2 lbs.) 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix cheese, salad dressing mix, and garlic powder (I shook it all up in a Ziploc bag). 2. Moisten chicken with water (I used Worchestershire sauce); coat with cheese mixture. Place in a shallow baking dish. 3. Bake 20-25 minutes or until cooked through. Yield: 6 servings Prep: 5 minutes Total Time: 30 minutes WW Points: 7 points per serving
  12. I bought these at the grocery store. Both Ukrops and Food Lion carry them here in Virginia. Jen
  13. I just discovered these today. They are just one (yes, 1!!) point apiece and quite tasty. However, if you don't like whole wheat bread or just really have to have white buns on a burger, you may not be as satisfied with these. I like whole wheat stuff, and I thought they were soft and yummy. Jen
  14. If you've only ever had the Lean Cuisine French Bread pizzas, then you're in for a treat. LC has a new line of mini frozen pizzas, and they are really good. They come in some good flavor combos, like spinach and mushroom (my fave), and they don't have the tough chewy bread crust that the French Bread pizzas had. The ones I have tried work out to 6 points each. A word about Stouffer's products (the makers of Lean Cuisine): if you think you have to stick with the Lean Cuisine line and stay away from Stouffer's regular frozen entrees, you might want to rethink that. Be sure and read the labels and use your sliderule to figure points. I discovered that the Lean Cuisine cheese ravioli, which I don't think tastes very good, is 5 points. But in their regular line they have an herb-roasted chicken entree that has some linguine and zucchini in it that is very good for 5 points. I'd much rather spend my points on something I enjoy! Jen
